A proposal to build a mosque steps from Ground Zero received the support of a downtown committee despite some loved ones of 9/11 victims finding it offensive.
The 13-story mosque and Islamic cultural center was unanimously endorsed by the 12-member Community Board 1's financial district committee.
The $100 million project, called the Cordoba House, is proposed for the old Burlington Coat Factory building at Park Place and Broadway, just two blocks from the World Trade Center site.
"I think it will be a wonderful asset to the community," said committee Chairman Ro Sheffe.
Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, who helped found the Cordoba Initiative following the 9/11 attacks, said the project is intended to foster better relations between the West and Muslims.
...Daisy Khan, executive director of the Cordoba Initiative, said donations from prestigious groups such as the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund would pay for the construction.

Bloomberg and the city council and county commissioner(s) should be horse whipped. Liberals will ruin this country.
I truly believe it will take a Muslim terrorist attack which kills 10,000 or 100,000 or more to finally wake this country up, AND, even still, liberals will be blaming Bush or conservatives or Israel for the actual attack due to “Foreign Policy”. Useful idiots.
How many churches and synagogues have these foundations built? Any?
Who is financing this project? ...follow the money.
The blood will be on Bloombooger’s hands.
we are not winning this war.
The mosque will be built before the new tower...
This is a big slap in the face to Americans!
The nation will never wake up. The world will NEVER wake up. These are the last days. Our only hope is a quick death.
Muslims have a long history of building mosques on conquered lands.
The religion of murder and indignation is not welcome in MY country, and especially near a Hallowed site where so many of our friends and relatives perished at the hands of muslims.
I have a feeling that patriots will solve this problem.
Some terrorists leader said “we will tear down the White House and build a mosque”. Well something similar happened instead. They tore down the world trade centers and now the cowardly leftists slaves are building the mosque for them.
13 story mosque?? What in the world. When I was on a tour group in Egypt, we visited a mosque and it was a building that was on floor with a bunch of rugs on the floor and some “alters”. It looked like a typical cathedral without the pews and the presence of God (lol).
I’m lighting a cigarette with one hand and pumping gas with the other, I’ll have to read this later. /sarc.
It is reprehensible that the religion of the men who murdered on 9-11 who used that faith which has a teaching to KILL THE INFIDEL is being allowed to build there. Where is the Cathedral for the Christian faith? Where is the chapel to celebrate the many CHRISTIANS who were MURDERED? What about the Synagogue for the Jews who were MURDERED?
Feel-Good frauds of the left acting on cheap emotion to make THEMSELVES FEEL GOOD. That’s what this disgusting thing is.
and how did they conquer so many lands?
Maybe we should just look at technique...
Lets look at the power of allah through someone elses eyes. It says a lot about the religion of peace.
Its worth of a front to back viewing
