Plans are under way for a Muslim house of worship, topped by a 13-story cultural center with a swimming pool, in a building damaged by the fuselage of a jet flown by extremists into the World Trade Center.
Interesting to say the least. I honestly don't know where to stand on this one. And where would they get $100m for it?

I am kind of curious how many Muslims visit the memorial site at ground zero and how many would go to a masque that overlooks it if/when it's built.

Well, I could read a lot into this.

And I do fully believe that if it were a Catholic or some other Christian denomination "cultural centre" there would be some sort of outcry.

But I don't think it's anything malicious.

Catholics are having to sell churches to stay afloat, the Jewish folks already have long-established temples, there are a growing number of Muslim immigrants into this country and I don't believe they have enough places of worship as it is. Plus it seems like cheap real estate, and a good time to buy.

Businesses have already relocated operations, and it's not like there is much demand for new office space in NYC that I'm aware of.

edit - wasn't aware of the place being there before, thanks ODS

Really? I didn't know, ok.

Was it reopened or was it damaged?
Ok maybe not a mosque in the typical sense, but a house of worship nonetheless..

And sorry, I got mixed up..

The place I'm talking about it the old Burlington Coat Factory. It was damage by aircraft landing gear on 9/11. It was then purchased by some Muslims, and now houses a prayer room. The same Muslims plan on constructing a proper house of worship and is obviously the same place you are talking about..


The Muslim behind all of this is a decent guy.. I say go for it!

isn't there a tape where bin laden expresses his absolute adoration of whitney houston?

the chorus of "i will always love you" could afterall be misheard as "balalallalalalalalalalala"

this is great. now when they are having their grand opening party, u guys should fly a plane into their building and see how they like it.
The Muslims involved in the new Mosque are very anti-fundamentalists. They are supported by many people of different faiths and organizations. They are good people.
