I was on record, before the Cordoba mosque and Islamic Center became a national story after Obama weighed in, that the organizers should have picked a different location, because the location was bound to result in the center being a target of radical Islamists for propaganda and agitation purposes.
But I do not agree with the tenor and scope of the “Stop the Islamization” movement and protest. Muslims, as any other religious group, should be held to abide by our civil laws. Period. To insist on such compliance is not anti-Muslim or Islamophobic, which is how some people want to play the issue.
An insistence on the supremacy of our civil laws does not require or justify a broad swipe at any religious group.
