I am against putting the mosque in that particular place. And I'll tell you why. For two reasons: first of all, those people behind the mosque have to respect, have to appreciate and have to defer to the people of New York, and not try to agitate the wound by saying 'we need to put the mosque next to the 9/11 site'," he was quoted as saying by the 'Arabian Business'.
"I heard and saw a lot of news about me being associated with it and this is all wrong. We did not finance this thing," he added.
"The wound is still there. Just because the wound is healing you can't say 'let's just go back to where we were pre-9/11'. I am against putting the mosque there out of respect for those people who have been wounded over there," he was quoted as saying.

Because He Knows The Yellowstreamers Have His Royal Back
Three things were particularly instrumental in fanning public opposition to Obama: his insensitive handling of the ground zero mosque proposal, his lawsuit against Arizona, and -- of course -- ObamaCare.
As for the failure of the president to suggest that the mosque ought to be located elsewhere, Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, a major Citicorp stockholder, has said what Obama should have:
Not only was the prince more sensitive to legitimate American feelings than our own president, but his opposition means as well that the mosque is unlikely to receive needed funding. So the president's words cost him support for no reason at all, except as more self-satisfying moral preening.
The president also aroused fury when his attorney general sued Arizona in an effort to have its immigration bill declared unconstitutional. Other states beset by uncontrolled illegal immigration and its social costs are enacting similar legislation"
