While the debate rages in New York about the Ground Zero Islamic Center we in the UK also have our Islamophobes who will use any tenuous excuse to oppose the establishment of a Mosque or its expansion.
The latest example of intolerance towards Muslims is in Cambridge where about 30 have signed a petition stating they are not opposed to the prayer house but and wait for it "the amount of disturbance it causes".
You do have to wonder about some of the bright sparks who oppose the expansion they are not exactly subtle are they. Perhaps if a Pub was constructed with happy hour turning out all manner of drink sodden Muppet's these Cambridge petitioners would be content.
