Ground Zero Mosque On The Move? « CBS New York- News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of NY.

New York Gov. David Paterson plans to meet with developers of the controversial ground zero mosque as early as this week to offer them state land – at another location – for their cultural and religious center. Paterson told Congressman Peter King about the meeting, and King said the governor asked him to make it public.

“The purpose of the meeting would be for the governor to discuss with the leaders of the mosque where state property is available,” said Rep. King. “Whether or not people from the mosque would be willing to consider that property.”

King added that the governor “seemed very enthused” about the anticipated discussions.

For at least a week, the governor’s message to the developers has been one of hopeful understanding.

“I hope that they type of cultural understanding that they’re trying to promote when they build the center could be practiced right now,” Paterson said.

Sources tell CBS 2’s Kramer that Gov. Paterson is concerned that Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a staunch supporter of putting the mosque at ground zero, and President Barack Obama, might be advising mosque leaders to dig in their heels and insist on the present location.

Hold on! Did I read that right?
“might be advising mosque leaders to dig in their heels and insist on the present location.”
You can not be serious…
