The org. planning this $100 million dollar mosque is called the Cordoba initiative.The moaque is to be called the Cordoba House. www.cordobaintiative.org/?q=content/cordoba-house-new-york-city.com
Where did the name come from? The Cordoba region of Spain.When the muslims conquered spain they took a huge Christian cathedral and turned it into the Cordoba mosque.So the very group planning this mosque near ground zero is named after a mosque built at the scene of a previous muslim conquest.
other such mosques:
When muslims they built the Al-Aqsa mosque
When muslims conquered Constantinople (now Istanbul) they trandformed the St. Sophia Basillica into a mosque
This mosque is planned to be opened on,of all days,Sept.11,2011.Nice timing hm? This will serve as a symbol of supremacy over NY and America.
