Daniel Pipes, master of the internally consistent argument

Wrap your mind around this, kids:
And my position on this controversy? While Muslims have every legal right to build a mosque near Ground Zero, this initiative carries the unmistakable odor of Islamic triumphalism. More importantly, Abdul Rauf’s dubious background and associations give reason to worry that his center will spread Islamist ideology. Therefore, it should be barred from opening.
They have "every legal right to build" and the appropriate course of action is to see to it (somehow, I guess) that it is "barred from opening."

Any suggestions, Danny? Pitchforks and torches? An unusually forceful "No Entry" sign? Spray-on Muslim Repellent?
