The "pastor" planning to burn the Koran on 9/11 is nothing but a disgusting troublemaker, whose fixed insistence on abusing his First Amendment rights reveals an ugly, unhelpful agenda catering to the most extreme fringes.

And you know what?  That makes him the perfect correlate to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who has come up with a new rationale for going ahead with construction of a Ground Zero mosque, according to the NY Daily News:  Not doing it, he claims, would anger Islamists:

The imam of the mosque conceded Wednesday he would have changed sites if he knew how controversial it would become - but he now believes a switch would anger the radical Muslim world.

"If we don't do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world," said Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on CNN's "Larry King Live."

Let's hope this removes all doubt from the minds of those who wonder where Rauf's preoccupations and interests lie -- and who the strongest proponents of the Ground Zero mosque are.

Now we are supposed to accede to a Ground Zero mosque in order to appease the Islamists?  Imam Rauf, I DON'T THINK SO.
