Articles of Most of the Major Participants in the Argument Over the Park51/Cordoba Initiative Islamic Community Center with a Mosque in It, Arranged in the Format of a Timeline.

This is a continuation of last Monday’s suggestion in which some, like Pamela Geller, Stop Islamization of America, and Iman Feisal Abdul Rauf, were already covered, and so will be conspicuously absent. Others, like Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, were left out because, while reading through all those articles, they began to seem sort of like carpet-baggers and, also, inconsequential. Others, whom I’m sure should be included, are left out. It’s intended to be anchored in press coverage, and so all the suggested links are articles from either newspapers or news websites. However, there are a few links to prevalent websites for additional background.
