(NEWS) Former NYC Mayor: Ground Zero Mosque 'Insensitive'

"Democrat Ed Koch may not condemn construction, but still blasts Obama.

Former New York Mayor Ed Koch, a Democrat who campaigned for President Obama in 2008, but who has also publicly blasted his party for failing to support Israel, has chimed in on the controversial plans to build an Islamic mosque near Ground Zero, calling the construction 'insensitive' to victims and survivors of the 9-11 attacks.

Koch nonetheless agreed with President Obama's recent controversial remarks defending the construction, arguing that, insensitive or not, Muslims have 'a right' to build the mosque."
