Thousands Protest Proposed Mosque Blocks Near Ground Zero

This afternoon, a crowd of 5,000 and possibly more came out to protest the travesty of a proposed mosque being built just blocks away from where the World Trade Center once stood.

Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs posted these two photos and more, as well as comments. She and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch said the size of the crowd way exceeded their expectations.

El Marco from Looking at the Left e-mailed me photos and and a description of Friday prayers by a Muslim group the old Burlington Clothing building, where the mosque is to be built. El Marco also sent me more photos and coverage from yesterday's rally. Here's some of the photos. Part II is coming soon.

If the size of this rally is an indication, this has hit a nerve with New Yorkers as well as concerned Americans, that the City of New York will allow this sacred ground to become desecrated by the radical ideology that destroyed those buildings and killed 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001.
