Who is Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Video clips posted today by a conservative blogger have set off a new round of bitter debate over the Islamic community center and mosque planned near Ground Zero. Are the clips part of a smear campaign or do the imam’s critics have legitimate concerns? Plus Congress has begun investigating one of the largest egg recalls in recent U.S. history. Author Michael Pollan joins us as we dig deeper.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    Is there anyway those miners can be rescued before Dec?

    Between .13 an egg and .50 an egg there must be some way to better and more healthfully accomodate those chickens.

    Thank you for that look at the space chickens are confined in. Amazing to see that cage free is only one inch more than caged.

    The situation in Jim Wells county overall is complex, lots of smuggling abandoned vehicles.

    Good night everyone.

    I think Sea World should be shut down.

    Good for Elin! Don't allow him to walk all over you! Now only if Sandra Bullock would do the same.

    Wild animals in captivity and forced to "perform" are frustrated and are WILD! What else do you expect? I'd be ticked off too!

    I believe that the Islamic center should be build, because this will show how great America is. It also shows that America does not think all Muslims are terrorist. I believe that America is a great country which is a symbol of the world for freedom of religion, speech, etc.

    CNN it would be much appreciated if you call these whales as Orcas instead of killer whales

    @Casey Jones,

    This is what happens when you confine and in prison a very intelligent animal. I only hope we learn from this lesson and release all Orcas and dolphins back into the wild. They deserve to live free...

    It is our duty as Americans to honor all religions. It is a part of our democracy. Muslims can be either moderate or extremists., Our foreign policy is vvery poor and we need to allow the Muslims to take care of their interrnal and intennational problems. Fundmentalism tends to become extremists..

    We have no business fighting in the Middle East it does not serve our purpose as a democracy and is a waist of money.. The American moderate Muslims have a right to build their mosque where ever they want to .

    That cop sounded so stupid while answering those questions, I bet he would like to kick himself right about now.
