The Ground Zero Victory Mosque: A Perspective

the optics are not good

so anyway, all the cool kids have been talking up the Ground Zero Victory Mosque situation. Two snippets caught my eye this evening on the subject:

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.
Here's where the "perspective" comes in:

The red box is the proposed location of the Victory Mosque, you should be able to figure out what stood where the crater is now. Connect the dots, people. It's not rocket surgery.....

h/t to doubleplusundead and Ace of Spades.
