'The Daily Show' Video: No Mosques in My Neighborhood

Jon Stewart exposes the stupidity of the anti-Mosque movement in America, including New York. He shows the ignorance of the argument by those opposing building a Mosque on 'hallowed ground.' And how the nation of freedom of religion is trying to deny that right Muslims in America. No one has done a better job than putting this issue in context than TDS...using humor, in the process.
