They just put over twenty thousand out of work in the Gulf for no good reason so build the mosque down there if it's a jobs project. Damn, that's a slender thread even for the airheads that pass for intellectuals on the left.
A very slender thread indeed. In fact, you can see how desperate the left is by their use of this argument. This is the first time I’ve seen it, but I bet you’ll see it more often.
Personally, however, I wouldn’t be surprised if they brought in a lot of foreign labor (from Muslim countries) to work on it.
