Build A ‘Golden Age” Center At Ground Zero


Possibly, instead of establishing a mosque near the location of the great tragedy of 9/11, a center of the three religions – a “New Golden Age” Center – could be established, which would symbolize both a readiness and a desire to live in peace and friendship side by side with one another.

Perhaps the significant funds that have been raised to establish the Ground Zero mosque could be redirected to fund the establishment of a center of the three religions that will prove believers can live in harmony while making joint efforts against the fundamentalism and extremism that is a danger to all of us.

Dr. David Altman is vice chair of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Strategic Dialogue and senior vice president of Netanya Academic College.

America is engaged in an intense debate regarding the plan to build a mosque and Muslim community center near Ground Zero, the site of the 9/11 attack on New York. A wave of criticism has been growing against establishing a mosque at this site, the very idea of which elicits overwhelming pain as the horrible crime was committed by followers of extremist Islam via the manipulation of its symbols and the belief that they were acting as messengers of God.
