Imam Feisal Abdur Rauf on the Cordoba Initiativel
The near-Ground Zero Muslim cultural center project has been the hottest political issue in America for the last couple of months, thanks to bigots like Spencer. The Imam of the center has written an article in the New York Times which explains his reasons for the proposed center. He reiterates, "Our name, Cordoba, was inspired by the city in Spain where Muslims, Christians and Jews co-existed in the Middle Ages during a period of great cultural enrichment created by Muslims. Our initiative is intended to cultivate understanding among all religions and cultures."
