Community board votes in favor of mosque being built at Ground Zero

Plans to build a mosque near Ground Zero have gotten another approval.

A community board voted overwhelmingly in favor of the mosque and Islamic cultural center last night.

Supporters say this sends a message that New York "promotes diversity and tolerance."

Some 9/11 families say the move to build the mosque will make terrorists think it is a win on their side.
