While President Barack Obama was forcefully endorsing the Ground Zero Mosque, Michelle Obama was paying homage with her presence to the Great Mosque at Granada, which overlooks what was once Islams most important outpost in Europe, the Alhambra palace in Granada.
There is no doubt about the influence of the Great Mosque of Granada overlooking Alhambra. One Spanish guidebook states that the Alhambra is to Granada what St.Peters is to Rome or St. Marks Square to Venice.
Michelle Obama and her nine-year-old daughter, Sasha, visited the Alhambra Mosque at dusk on the second day of her visit to Spain, one day after Barack had celebrated his 49th birthday without his family with Chicago friends.
Built in 2003, the Great Mosque in Granada, like the mosque planned in the shadow of Ground Zero, was born in controversy.
The land on which the mosque has been built was bought 22 years ago, but city authorities continually objected to the planning proposals. (Victory News Magazine, July 17, 2003). When it was finally accepted that the land could be used for religious purposes, objections were raised to the layout of the building. Planners had to rethink the height and design of the buildings minaret but opposition to the scheme, which received financial backing from Libya, the United Arab Emirates and Morocco, gradually subsided.

Well the circumstantial evidence seems to be getting stronger.
Her lack of sensitivity is, of course, appalling.
The Spanish may have to fight Reconquista and the Battle of Granada all over again.
This is not some ancient mosque from the Middle Ages, it was built in 2003!
Oh people, stop being so hyper critical.
I’m quite sure she also visited a Christian Cathedral too! After all, Spanish speaking people everywhere recognize their Christian heritage coming from Espana (Spain).
Which Cathedral did she visit?
The Corporate Media probably forgot to mention it, no big surprise. Right??
uhm mmmmm mmmmm mmmmmmh
Do I sense a clandestine meeting to convey Obamas wishes to his allies, through his wife; did she bow, or plug the hole for the cause.
This is silly. My Mom went there when she visited Spain two years ago. It’s a tourist attraction. I’m no fan of either Obama... but really, if my Mom (who is definitly not a Muslim) can visit there because she’s on vacation, I suppose Michelle Obama can too.
Did they allow her in? Thought only believer were allowed in.....Who did she meet there?
I think she is there to pick up the BP bribes.
And your Mom was the FLOTUS married to a POTUS that many people suspect was a closet muslim at the time of her visit? I think that if nothing else her visit shows horrible political judgement and incredible insensitivity for the concerns of a considerable portion of the citizens of the USA.
I do not believe either of these people are faithful at all. They have the religion of “black liberation theology”, google that.
I think you are confusing the 14th century Alhambra Moorish palace and mosque with this new mosque built in 2003. The new mosque is an actual place of worship, of no historical or, touristy distinction. It would be like visiting a Catholic church built 7 years ago as a tourist attraction!
Yes, but I’m sure your Mom also visited a Church.
Why bother going to a mosque if you are on vacation? How many Christians would visit a mosque?
Has the question been answered? Has anyone ever seen Obama eat during the days of Ramadan?
“Yes, but Im sure your Mom also visited a Church.”
As it happens, so did she.

This mosque was built in 2003 and is not a tourist attraction. But it’s worse than just a mosque.
For those who may not know, it’s part of a large Islamic project run by a group similar to Rauf’s, the marabitun, aimed at converting Granada into a Muslim city. They actually have one neighborhood there that is completely ruled by Islam and filled mostly with converts they have brought in; non-Muslims have moved out. They plan this for the entire city.
So having the Wookie visit it is not a good thing, and certainly not innocent.
Prayer time at the mosque starts at dusk.
But the lame stream media just told us that some in this country, wrongly believe that obama is a muslim.
I like that they have to get out in front of this by making the case that obama is a christian. How come obama isn’t. Kinda similar to another president, “I am not a crook”.
Thoughts for the morning.
