A graveyard should not be used to make political points.
So just as much as I would oppose a museum at Ground Zero hailing the glory of neo-conservatism, or a hall full of paintings portraying 'America's triumphant march to Baghdad', I think the International Freedom Center (IFC) should not be build there. Although I was sceptical of IFC criticism at first, it now definitely looks like the IFC is going to be used to criticize American foreign policy.
That's just wrong.
Not the uttering of such criticisms. The place.
You don't drag corpses through a street to make your point.
Well, at least civilized people don't.
Ground Zero is a place of sadness and death, of love forlorn and mourning.
It is not the place to stage a campaign rally.
Sign this petition to stop the IFC from being build there.
Build it somewhere else.
(I've just tried it, the site accepts non-American signatures as well. If you go here, and select 'Other' for country, you can find several other Dutch people who've put their names up. Also, if you don't mind shivers going down your spine, deselect everything except 'family member'. Chilling.)
