Prince Awaleed bin Talal
In the ever changing world of popular news stories everyone appears to have forgotten about the Ground Zero Mosque. The story captured America’s attention for about two months, and then the public suddenly and simultaneously forgot about it. The anger subsided even though Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf still plans on building the Park 51/Cordoba House Mosque near the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9-11.

The final chapter of coverage appeared to be that the Right is just going to have to hate it while Muslims and the Left love the Mosque location– and have won the battle. But wait, a surprise verbal grenade just may have ruined the cease fire – and you will be shocked by who threw it.

In an interview published Thursday, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the richest men in the world, told a United Arab Emirates magazine that he believes the Park 51 Mosque should be move further away from Ground Zero. Prince Alwaleed said the mosque would only “agitate the wound” caused by the 9-11 terrorists.

I am against putting the mosque there out of respect for those people who have been wounded over there…The wound is still there. Just because the wound is healing you can’t say, ‘Let’s just go back to where we were pre-9/11. – Prince Alwaleed
