...what do you think about this? (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1707704/posts)
Given the current tensions, is it at all unsettling to have a mosque this large erected by a group that's been connected with terrorism, smack dab in East London?

it's no more unsettling that westminster abbey, or st pauls, or any other religious building.

edit: having now read the article. i find the two examples i used quite ammusing, seeing as they are the same examples used in the article. lol

So you just fire off a response from the hip, eh? :p
I guess it could be a blessing, the more I think about it. From what I've read about terror, most of the motivation comes from a feeling of isolation in the Western world. Hard to feel "isolated" when you're one of 70,000 mosque-goers.

At one point Pastor Fischer equates the preparation she is giving children with the training of terrorists in the Middle East. "I want to see young people who are as committed to the cause of Jesus Christ as the young people are to the cause of Islam," she tells the camera. "I want to see them radically laying down their lives for the gospel, as they are over in Pakistan and Israel and Palestine."
