London's Mega-Mosque: "Recruiting Ground for Al Qaeda"
by Soeren Kern
A radical Islamic group has applied for a permit to build one of the largest mosques in the world, in London.
The East London super-mosque, known as the Abbey Mills Riverine Center, would hold up to 10,000 worshippers. It would be the largest religious building in Britain and the largest mosque in Europe.
By comparison, Britain's largest cathedral, the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool, can hold no more than 3,000 worshippers, and St. Paul's Cathedral, one of the iconic features of the London skyline, has a capacity of 2,500.
