Newsday Poll on International Freedom Center

Newsday is conducting an online poll regarding the International Freedom Center (IFC), which is being planned by a liberal group as an anti-American center near the planned memorial for 9/11 victims at Ground Zero. The vote as of Monday at about 8:00 a.m. is 96.5% against the IFC.

An alliance of 15 major 9/11 family organizations opposes the IFC. The 9/11 families have been joined by the 22,000 members of New York’s Uniformed Firefighters Association, which lost 343 active members and 3 retired members in the 9/11 attacks, and the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York, the state’s largest firefighter organization consisting of 110,000 volunteer firefighters, many of whom participated in the rescue and recovery effort at Ground Zero. In addition, more than 46,000 people from all over the country have signed an online petition calling for the liberal planning group to remove the IFC from the memorial site. Even Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) has come out against the IFC.
