800 miles southwest of New York City a proposed Islamic -- -- and the community apart.
Residents of Murfreesboro Tennessee divided over the 52000 square foot facility.
Our mega mosques threatening Americans way of life.
Joining us from -- -- this is Ben Ferguson is a syndicated talk show host and from DC Abraham Hooper of the council on American Islamic.
-- you heard that discussion before.
Let's see what's going on here this very small town about a 100000 people in the town of Murfreesboro say.
We don't want a mosque here -- what's your response to that.
Well I would say it's not the majority of the.
People -- there's a few.
Vocal individuals and groups.
And that couple politicians and sought to exploit the situation for their own political gain in the primaries locally there you had this.
-- and forget -- real name is.
As saying that this wouldn't be Zelnick that's -- -- -- saying that this wouldn't be a mosque it'd be obvious.
Islamic training center promoting the dreaded -- real law and all of that.
I mean it's all nonsense but if people don't know about Islam and Muslims and don't interact with ordinary Muslims during their daily lives.
You know people are vulnerable to believing this kind of Bilge water.
We'll go ahead -- -- -- you wanna tell us what people in tennis I think like I think.
Yeah I think people intensely personal there was more outraged when you're trying to -- -- you've had the largest county commission meeting in the history -- over any issue over this one.
Over 650 people show up in the town of total population behind thousands he can't say that just a few people that are excited about this.
The biggest issue though is the size of it over 54 that at 4000 square foot facility with a school poll.
Away a modest and everything else you gaffes weren't as small town odd thousand people now.
They don't have I'm sure I'll be an example telling that very often I'll give me an example of the disinformation.
In this kind of thing 52000.
Yeah could that be that includes a cemetery.
Athletic courts all of those kinds of things.
About a pack again how the -- I've got back to -- what but I don't let my main point I I would.
And their Iowa -- -- rally like what they've got guys have gotten old bride then got up.
Yeah it's not.
I love how -- and act like we're now somehow protesting a graveyard which by the way -- not been brought up by them.
They're building an actual facility you can -- -- however you want to but we have a small town of -- 100000 people in the largest thing there is a college university.
They gotta look at this and then hold on they just starting here in 1997 now the sudden we have this facility it's going to be massive.
In our small town I think there's reason to raise an eyebrow there by saying.
Pardon if I don't get it over the -- area.
Isn't over yet let's get the facts straight you're telling me that there's going to be a 52000.
Square foot building on this site.
As you know that's not knowing what I.
Let let -- and make it very clear OK I'm gonna I'm gonna make it very clear for you.
I'm saying their facility where their data is and where that name is and all that is -- there is going to be you know life.
And what the -- -- -- -- You can hang on guys yeah I got out of the panel and rural area that sounds familiar Michael it sounds like -- -- community's economy in.
Uproar about about the large mosque right -- I'd like to -- mr.
-- question for Canada mr.
Cooper you early -- regarding the New York the ground zero mosque you Rhode an op Ed which I have and a you talked about the meal money and I got -- -- the Islamic community center that's not at ground zero.
Could I finish please and and you talked about the Neil McCarthy I've responsive hysterical over the top.
I thought since then of course many Democrats have also come out and oppose the location.
What do you set of them -- they also Neil McCarthy -- hysterical.
Know what I have a very.
It to be apology is what you get to be a politician off -- -- it doesn't required tremendous -- you tend to go with it.
The wind and it if the wind is.
To the right and anti Muslim and you see that you lose votes or support.
If you don't it's not bandwagon you're gonna get it.
You know again I hope that -- -- mr.
-- something here on it the sentiment it -- seventy or sixty diversity percent of Americans just want you to move the mosque just know that that's and practiced the operate.
Don't have a mosque if they just want to move it may be I don't know.
A couple of blocks away from ground zero since it's wearing very sad that they -- -- it.
Let me asking a question would you give up any of your constitutional rights but based on majority vote.
And I'll show you know open and I didn't hear I also didn't fly an airplane.
Into the building killed 3000 people at the radical radical islamists.
I'm Eric not -- and its existing and is -- all the guys.
All our guys.
-- -- -- no one.
No -- -- they had done this Oprah please god no one is suggesting that Muslims are not entitled to religious freedom but at the same time.
We as a country let's get real controversial here.
We should not be in the business of celebrating -- long.
I want somebody to go and show me a place in the world where this is not some kind of radical ideology of eight.
Where is this a religion of love where does this.
And sometimes I let let the misnomer and I -- all the Californians.
It and have -- yeah I didn't take it to many different god and I go back.
I would -- to them at ground zero than at freedom.
Where is tonight I don't look at the -- look at the mosque at ground zero for 12.
What about building this nobody's gonna help ground zero that otherwise go ahead let me finish let me finish.
What is it wouldn't -- this is tell -- that shows the love to the community.
They're making people angry they're making people that said there inciting people and that -- to make -- both sides.
But the point is there is another religion in the world that would do this on a PR move.
To do it in such a way that looks like you're building a trophy in celebrating a horrible event.
And saying that you're doing out because it's a lot no one's -- know -- it must -- you know and and Obama are exactly right I can I help my god I just wanted to celebrate yeah -- -- -- Well you know many people abroad perhaps -- If people back in the fifties and sixties were opposed to desegregation.
Do you think that -- for a majority from wherever they may.
They should have been maintained the sort of nobody can relate that -- -- creation desegregation -- -- you know I.
I was just you know when you when you look at this when you look at this whole thing -- -- -- going back right and I asked this question again.
Show me where in the world that this is not some kind of anti western ideology of hate.
-- you know after 9/11.
Nothing is something else the follow up on on the question.
And the question there the reason they want to build that there is that I'll get controversial again.
They want to celebrate 9/11 this is a signal to the world can celebrate 9/11 mr.
-- last -- I mean we didn't think -- drives.
The -- so it's your position that Islam is evil shouldn't be allowed in America Muslims fifth column.
That -- doesn't know that I hit.
I -- cost yeah it's radical is an increasingly radical and radicalized and dangerous ideology we're gonna have to leave it there Ben Ferguson who say thank you -- you.
