Imamen om moskén vid Ground Zero

Imamen Rauf har nu landat igen på amerikansk mark och skrivit en op-ed i New York Times. Där förklarar han att planerna att bygga en moské/community center två kvarter från Ground Zero kommer att fortsätta.

We are proceeding with the community center, Cordoba House. More important, we are doing so with the support of the downtown community, government at all levels and leaders from across the religious spectrum, who will be our partners. I am convinced that it is the right thing to do for many reasons.


At Cordoba House, we envision shared space for community activities, like a swimming pool, classrooms and a play space for children. There will be separate prayer spaces for Muslims, Christians, Jews and men and women of other faiths. The center will also include a multifaith memorial dedicated to victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.
