"The longer we have this feud the more the terrorists are laughing. With worldwide terrorism on the increase, we need to be together even though we have political differences. The latest [on the 'Ground Zero Mosque'] as of this weekend is [developers] are really waiting for the Imam to come back from a trip overseas. I'm still hopeful we'll have a meeting." —Governor Paterson reiterates his position on the mosque planned near the World Trade Center site, calling on its developers to move the project to another location in Manhattan, and asking for a meeting with them to discuss offering state land as an incentive to move, during a radio interview with Monica Crowley yesterday.
