Isn’t it interesting that the Ground Zero Mosque is being built by The Cordoba Initiative? Just a question that flashed after too much coffee and too little sleep, but it does make one wonder.
The Spanish city of Cordoba was once the Muslim city of Qurṭuba, capital of the Caliphate of al-Andalus. And Osama bin Laden has used what he calls “the tragedy of al-Andalus” as a recruiting tool for Islamic terrorists in the mideast and elsewhere.
So why is this Initiative, why is this mosque, named after a city Islamists seek to reclaim, if the meaning and the intention is to foster interfaith brotherhood and warm feelings and unicorn dreams?
