WEEKS OF NEWS MEDIA-HYPED CONTROVERSIES OVER THE CONSTRUCTION OF A MUSLIM COMMUNITY CENTER TWO BLOCKS FROM THE LOCATION OF THE FORMER TWIN TOWERS IN MANHATTAN AND OVER A SMALL-TOWN CHRISTIAN MINISTER FROM FLORIDA THREATENING TO BURN THE QOR'AN, ISLAM'S HOLY BOOK, ON THE NINTH ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD TRADE CENTER ATTACK, CULMINATED WITH THOUSANDS COMING TO LOWER MANHATTAN YESTERDAY TO PARTICIPATE IN RIVAL PROTESTS, IN SHARP CONTRAST WITH THE SOLEMNITY OF PREVIOUS YEARS' COMMEMORATIONS.

AT THE "ANTI MOSQUE" PROTEST ON WEST BROADWAY CALLED BY THE TEA PARTY, PROTEST SIGNS COULD BE SEEN DEPICTING ISLAM AS A VIOLENT RELIGION AND PROMOTING CHRISTIANITY AND PATRIOTISM.

TWO BLOCK AWAY ON BROADWAY, IN FRONT OF CITY HALL, A LARGER RALLY WAS CALLED BY THE INTERNATIONAL ACTION CENTER AND OVER 60 COMMUNITY AND FAITH BASED ORGANIZATIONS TO DENOUNCE THE TEA PARTY AND THE PROPOSED BOOK BURNING, AND SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY CENTER. WBAI FRED NGUYEN ATTENDED THE EVENT AND FILES THIS REPORT:
