Mosque at Ground Zero

What are the thoughts on this? Our constitution allows us to worship any God we please. However, out constitution makes no determination as to where a house of worship can be built be it Muslim or Methodist.
We are now being told that Muslims worship daily near the Pentagon. Adding an additional place at Ground Zero has the feel of marking territory that has been has been ravaged.
Now I know there are moderate Muslims just as there are moderates in every religion. The people in charge of this project see it as a practice in tolerance. That is something I believe in as well. Except this time the tolerance should be on the side of the Muslims. Respect could be earned by moving this center to another location since it is clearly a dividing issue in America. We need to be united. Do Muslims believe in the Constitution? This is not something that Americans should be fighting over. Our American Muslim friends will hopefully have the sensibility to choose another location.
