On mosque, beware the Saudis
by Mitchell Bard
In 2006, British filmmakers went undercover at London's Central Mosque, a prominent center of worship that had long cultivated a moderate image. The resulting footage instead showed imams saying that God orders the faithful to kill homosexuals, that women should not have the same rights as men, and that followers should limit their contact with non-Muslims.
The documentary noted that the mosque — whose public outreach masked a private hate — was funded by Saudi Arabia.
While the debate regarding the mosque at Ground Zero has focused primarily on the sensitivity of the survivors versus the constitutional rights of Muslims, the real question is who will be funding the $100 million Islamic center.
