Imam Rauf is no dummy. If he's a moderate, as he claims, why is the result of his in-your-face move the opposite of his stated goal of peace and harmony? Imam, it's not quite working out that way!
The result is closer to the objective of fanatic Ben Yussuf in the movie "El Cid": Divide the Infidel. The way to counteract this is to embrace "El Cid," a work of art all sides of the issue should be able to appreciate. The mosque issue isn't one of Right or Left, and shouldn't be portrayed that way. It's a question of respect for America and Western civilization. Let Imam Rauf demonstrate that's he's a moderate and the issue will go away.
