"Let us by all means make the 'Ground Zero' debate a test of tolerance. But this will be a one-way street unless it is to be a test of Muslim tolerance as well," Hitchens says.

Hitchens also objects to the apparent ideology of the Iman meant to direct the 'Gound Zero Moque', Feisal Abdul Rauf: "I mentioned his sinister belief that the United States was partially responsible for the assault on the World Trade Center and his refusal to take a position on the racist Hamas dictatorship in Gaza."
