Hundreds of impassioned demonstrators — all waving American flags, but separated into two groups by police — descended on the site of the proposed mosque near ground zero, with opponents chanting, "No mosque, no way!" and supporters shouting, "We say no to racist fear!"
Guest lineup for the Sunday TV news shows:
A leader of the proposed Islamic center and mosque two blocks from ground zero says dropping the plan in the face of protest is not an option.
A New York City panel has denied landmark status to a building near ground zero, freeing organizers to build an Islamic center and mosque there.
The supremacist program authoritative Islam calls Shariah is big on symbols. Arguably, none is more effective than its practice of building mosques on its conquests' most sacred sites.
Activist Daisy Khan said Tuesday that she and her husband, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, have spent months talking with relatives of 9/11 victims, first responders and others about alternative concepts for the center, including the possibility that it could become a multifaith center focusing on religious conflict.
Mr. Rauf and Mrs. Khan said they have begun talking in recent weeks with more relatives of 9/11 victims in an attempt to build support for the center.
