Gov. calls for end to mosque talk during holiday
NEW YORK (WABC) -- New York Governor David Paterson is asking New Yorkers to stop discussions about the proposed Islamic cultural center near ground zero for at least one week.
Paterson says discussions about the plan should stop during this week's Jewish and Muslim holidays.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, is this week. The celebration of Ramadan comes to an end at the end of the week.
Paterson says the focus this week should be on concern for those who lost family on 9/11.
