Mega $100 million 100,000-square foot Mosque to Open Two Blocks From World Trade Center/Ground Zero

No worries, at least a new mega-Mosque is being built around the corner

"Palestinian" Muslims cheering on 9/11

Great news! Now when people visit ground zero, they can remember exactly where the hatred that took it down came from!  While the WTC is gone, at least people will now have a giant mosque to fill the void! 
(DNA Info) The old Burlington Coat Factory building on Park Place has sat shuttered and empty since the landing gear from a hijacked plane crashed through the roof on 9/11.
Now, a Muslim group hopes to build a mosque and cultural center there....

“We have a vision that is opposite the vision of the extremists,” said Daisy Khan, executive director of the Cordoba Initiative, the group behind the center. “We want to be a driving force for the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan.”

Community Board 1’s Financial District Committee embraced the center’s message of tolerance and voted unanimously Wednesday night to support the project.

...other members of the community, who did not attend Wednesday’s meeting, want the mosque to find a different home.

“It doesn’t belong down here,” said Rosemary Cain, whose firefighter son was killed on 9/11. “It makes me sick to think the city would allow such a thing.”

While Cain acknowledged that “not every person who is Muslim is a terrorist,” she thinks the Muslim community as a whole never sufficiently declaimed the attacks.

John Schmidt, 29, a construction worker who is rebuilding the World Trade Center, also got angry when he heard about the plans.

“No way,” he said. “Muslims bombed the towers. Why would they put a mosque next to the Freedom Tower?”

Khan envisions the $100 million, 100,000-square-foot Cordoba House as much more than a mosque....

The 13-story center, which could open as soon as 2013 at 45 Park Place, will include a 500-seat auditorium, a basketball court, a swimming pool and a kitchen for cooking classes. Khan hopes to host interfaith conferences and panels along with more lighthearted events like a Muslim Idol talent competition.

Iqbal Hossain Chowdhury, 42, who runs a newsstand on Park Place, said the center would provide much-needed education for Muslims as well as non-Muslims.  [Most of us got all the Islamic education we needed on 9/11 -JIDF]

“People read the Koran and they don’t know the meaning,” said Chowdhury, who is Muslim. “It is good for them to learn — to learn is best.”  [The promotion of hatred and violence toward all non-Muslims and depiction of Jews as apes and pigs is pretty clear, actually, but thanks anyway, Hossain.  -JIDF]

Khan said she has heard very little criticism of the center so far, though she added that Saturday’s attempted Times Square bombing didn’t help.

“Events like [Times Square] always set us back,” Khan said. [Yes, it's a shame when Islam attacks, as Muslims have carried out 15,247 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11.  -JIDF]
