An event was held in downtown Manhattan yesterday to protest the proposed building of a mosque on the World Trade Center site.  Richard Bartholomew gives us a run-down of the event and surrounding commentary at his site, Bartholomew’s Notes.  He quotes Pamela Geller, executive director of “Stop the Islamization of America” and a speaker at the rally:
