Ground Zero Mosque Quote

I just went through the ground zero mosque threads (my god those are long) looking for a quote I was certain that I had favorited. I still can't find it.

It was something along the lines of focusing on the wrong word if you are focusing on either Muslim, or Arab, and not Extremeist, and that the intolerant had more in common with the terrorists than other Muslims.
I'm sure my memory is mangling it.

Thank you. That was it exactly. Maybe I should have tried searching after the second cup of coffee.

"Ground Zero Mosque" is akin to "Joe the Plumber". None of the words are accurate. Not even sure about the "the".--Alan Colmes

Yes, I know it's not on ground zero, but that was how it was being referred to in the threads I referenced.
