At first blush, it appears that a mosque at Ground Zero is insulting to all the Jews that died on 9/11 at the hands of the Saudi extremists (“Zero tolerance? Mosque debate masks complexity of Jewish-Muslim affairs,” Aug. 5). But on further reflection, it serves to show that we recognize peaceful differences of religion. Furthermore, it is good insurance that this area will not be threatened by Islamist extremists, because they would truly be crazy to blow up their own place of worship.
