EDISON - Protesters both for and against the proposed mosque near the World Trade Center site descended on Manhattan Sunday.

John Press, who is against the mosque, says, ?We're not against Muslims, but we know that it's expansionist, and this is part of it.?

Matthew Sky, who came out in support of the plan, says, ?Muslims, like any other Americans, have a right to be here...they shouldn't have to apologize for anything? it was radicals that attacked us on 9/11, not Islam.?

The debate over the mosque?s construction continues and so far no compromise has been reached.
