Why Muslim Americans Have Been Reluctant to Show Support for Park51 – WNYC.

According to Hussein Rashid, a professor at Hofstra University and contributor to Religion Dispatches, thinks Muslims have rallied around the constitutional rights of those planning Park 51. But he thinks the Cordoba Initiative has failed to convert that passion into a support for the project itself.

“I still don’t think they’ve done it,” he said. “I think we’re hearing different things — and not wildly different things, but just enough inconsistencies that it keeps raising questions, from the Twitter feed to the FAQ on their website and their TV appearances.”
