Taqiyya hindsight in New York

Sharif El-Gamal, the money side of the ground zero mosque has had a change of heart and now admits he and the rest of the "Park51" made a mistake by not taking into account the feelings and emotions of the families of those murdered on 9-11.  The main question is: now that you have seen the light, where are the changes you are obviously going to start due to your new found enlightenment?  I imagine El-Gamal will be ending the debate over the location by moving more than 6 blocks away from GZ, issue a formal apology to the citizens of New York and publicly admit that Islam is in the process of taking control of vast areas of the earth.

Or not.

GZ Islamic center boss: We blew it  

The controversial Islamic cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero opened to the public for the first time last night with a photography exhibit -- as its developer said he regretted not consulting with families of the 9/11 victims earlier.

“We made incredible mistakes,” Sharif El-Gamal said as the Park51 Islamic community center welcomed visitors to an exhibition featuring pictures of New York children of more than 160 ethnicities.

“The biggest mistake we made was not to include 9/11 families,” El-Gamal said.

“We didn’t understand that we had a responsibility to discuss our private project with family members that lost loved ones.”

About 150 people attended last night’s exhibit and there were no protests.

El-Gamal said he hopes that people who don’t want the center and prayer space so close to where the 9/11 attacks occurred will now see what it’s all about.

“There’s tremendous excitement with this opening,” he said.

Park51 is about bringing people together.”

Uh huh.
