The organization planning to build an Islamic community center near the World Trade Center said the imam who has been the public face of the project, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, will be playing a reduced role in the facility.
The nonprofit group Park51 announced Friday that it had named a new imam to help lead religious programing so that Rauf could focus on other initiatives.
The group named another New York City imam, Abdullah Adhami, as its senior adviser.
Adhami was born in Washington, D.C., and earned an architecture degree from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. He has already performed guest lectures at the site of the planned center, and has had a presence in lower Manhattan since the early 1990s.

I thought Bloomberg was their leading spokesman/developer/PR guy?
It should be referred to as the NYC Victory Center.
No, no, it shall be officially known as the Ground Zero Islamic Victory over Infidels End-Zone Dance Mosque & Islamic Superior Culture Center!
It’s not at all clear this shameful event will ever take place.
Abdullah Adhami needs a large dose of public ridicule the forst time he begins his public initiative, not that he doesnt have the right to free speech. He jst needs to listen to conservative free speech if he is making the initiative now.
We should lay it to him in the tradition of good solid American vitriolic debate, something that Muslim culture and Liberal fascists know nothing about these days.You score logical points on them and they decry hate speech? And then they get to disguise their own hateful activity as “passion?” EFF EVERY ONE OF THEM.
Murder Mosque should suffice.

Mr Adhami is just another zombie mohamedan:
Looks like the Islamic Victory Mosque has a new leader!
