Rushdie in mosque's corner
by Edmund Demarche and Candice M. Giove
His own book was burned by Muslim fanatics, and a fatwa was put on his head, but firebrand author Salman Rushdie said yesterday that he supports a mosque and Islamic cultural center just two blocks from Ground Zero.
"It's just a stupid argument," said Rushdie, after he spoke at the Brooklyn Book Festival. "Of course they should be able to build a mosque there."
