Madam Speaker, the people who want to build a mosque at Ground Zero now want American taxpayers to pay $5 million to help build that mosque. Those who beg for American money to build an insult mosque on Ground Zero disrespect the 3,000 people of all faiths, nations, and religions that were murdered by a radical Islamic faction on 9/11.

Ground Zero is sacred American soil. It's where America was ambushed by killers from the sky. A taxpayer-funded mosque at the site comes across as a memorial and tribute to the radical terrorists that murdered in the name of religion. Such a plan is unwise, insensitive, and shameful.

Those who wish to build a mosque should instead build a monument and a memorial to the victims of 9/11: victims that include Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Otherwise, Ground Zero is off-limits.

And that's just the way it is.
