Subject: Outrageous remark.
Mr. Alan Habbick,
Executive Producer, CBCNews Morning.
Dear Mr. Habbick:
We are appalled to hear Mr. Harry Forrestall, on the news this
morning, making the outrageous remark describing Al-Aqsa Mosque,
in Jerusalem, as a "controversial mosque". Whatever claims
Israel may make about Al-Haram Al-Sharif Compound, there is nothing
controversial about Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the holiest Islamic sites, which has
stood there for over 1400 years. It is ourageous and insulting to all Muslims
for the CBC to describe the mosque as a conraversial mosque.
