Throughout history, Muslim conquerors have demonstrated their hatred and disdain for all other religions by purposefully erecting mosques over some of the most sacred and hallowed places of Judaic and Christian worship.
The al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is built on top of one of the holiest sites in Judaism, the Temple Mount. The former St. Sophia’s Basilica, once the world’s largest cathedral and orthodox patriarchal basilica, was torn down and replaced with the principal mosque of Istanbul. The Cordoba mosque in Spain was a former Christian cathedral. Muslims have engaged in this practice for centuries, symbolizing their victories over the infidels.
Their attack on the WTC was an attack on what they perceived as a temple to America's worship of money. They don't understand that it was the loss of life that precipitated our violent response, not the loss of some symbol. Still, they are now completing the cycle by dropping a temple on the site of ours.
I don't believe that all Muslims are violent or dangerous but I DO believe that the origins of that religion are opportunistic, violent and expansionistic. It was, in many meaningful ways, a cult of personality intended to expand and consolidate the power of Bedouin Arabs in the Saudi Arabian desert. Mohammed was not a good man but he surely wasn't stupid*. Many millions of Muslims have taken that origin and turned it into something good but there is no lack of historical motivation to engage in these types of behavior and it must not be tolerated.
Jerusalem is a Muslim holy city BECAUSE it was holy to Christianity and Judaism. It was necessary for them to claim it as such so they could eventually conquer it and destroy the holy buildings of the other religions. For the same reason, every place they have conquered in the west has magically become another holy place.
This is just the next step in supplanting our claim to New York as ours and adding it to the list of conquered places they've taken from the infidels.
* - I would compare Islam's early history to the early history of the Mormon church. A cult that eventually became something more and better than its roots.
