Hardhats of NYC say "Hell NO we won't!" to building Mosque

Many construction workers around New York City have said there is no way they will be helping to construct a Mosque anywhere near Ground Zero. One construction worker created the "Hard Hat Pledge" on his blog and thousands of trade folks are signing up. Not just construction workers either, there are people from the glass industry, steel, insurance, lumber-just about all industries and trades are making the pledge.
A growing number of New York construction workers are vowing not to work on the mosque planned near Ground Zero.

"It's a very touchy thing because they want to do this on sacred ground," said Dave Kaiser, 38, a blaster who is working to rebuild the World Trade Center site.

"I wouldn't work there, especially after I found out about what the imam said about U.S. policy being responsible for 9/11," Kaiser said.
Many of the guys lost family and co-workers on 9/11. They have very strong feelings about building on this site-as many around the country do. The hardhats have committed to building a a beautiful, majestic building if the Imam will move it somewhere else. As the other 70% of the people who oppose building this Mosque at ground zero, it is not about the religion, its about the location.

I cannot understand how this group can claim this is a testament to peace and healing yet they have no concern nor regard for the American people and our feelings about that site.
