A Muslim case against the mosque
by Stephen Schwartz
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf bills his plan for an Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero -- which the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission is expected to vote on tonight -- as a platform for interfaith cooperation, dialogue and understanding.
But the plan is obviously provocative and confrontational -- and it's hard to imagine that Rauf didn't know that long before it became public.
That's one big reason why American Muslims, like other Americans, should reject the project -- particularly if they really want to adhere to traditional Islamic principles. I say that as a Muslim convert since 1997.
