Anti-Mosque Crowd Harasses Suspected Muslim

Opponents of a planned Islamic center near Ground Zero gathered in Lower Manhattan on Sunday to denounce the project. A YouTube user filmed some of the protesters harassing a man they mistook for a Muslim. Salon.com interviewed the citizen reporter, Aaron Webber, who said the "the protesters were denouncing Islam itself, not merely the community center project."

User notes: "A man walks through the crowd at the Ground Zero protest and is mistaken as a Muslim. The crowd turns on him and confronts him. The man in the blue hard hat calls him a coward and tries to fight him. The tall man who I think was one of the organizers tried to get between the two men. Later I caught up with the man who's name is Kenny. He is a Union carpenter who works at Ground Zero. We discussed what a scary moment that was for him. I told him that I hoped it did not ruin his day."

This is a shame in a modern world where religious tolerance is preached. I am not a Christian neither a Muslim but still feel this is no solution to the problem. Honestly, this could aggravate the problem more.

The fanatics who spread terrorism will again play this to their advantage and such incidents help them to motivate Muslim youths to pick up guns.
