  1. Sounds very interesting! It is quite interesting to read that Feisal Abdul Rauf, who’s involved with the Cordoba centre in New York City, is a sufi imam. I remember getting emails from family members about how vicious it is of the Muslims to build a mosque close to ground zero, how they want to establish their world dominance, etc. These people have no idea what Cordoba means in this context, they know almost nothing about Islam. For them, Islam is one big black unknown, which they fear and hate. They are not aware of various teachings within Islam, like Sufism, Sunnism, all kinds of Shia sects, different schools of Islamic thought and jurisprudence. They don’t really care and are not interested in dialogue. They found a convenient target for their righteous fury and hate, and proudly feel that by attacking Islam they protect Western values and civilization.

  2. Not directly relevant, but good lick with the speech and the event. Good idea, good cause.

    (might be nice if the Iranians eased up on the Sufis and the Bahais.)
