    And well done at ignoring the fact there are Churches in Muslim countries.
    Read my question over and over, again
    Are there any problems building a Christian Cathedral or a Jewish Synagogue in a Muslim nation?
    Building is the key word

    Wow, reading comprehension must not be your forte!

    It's not like it is happening now anyway.
    What don't you accept, that Saladin and Akbar were tolerant or that the conflict between Islam and Christianity started with Islamic aggression in the 7th century?

    In some countries, yes. In others, no.

    You could have figured that out yourself if you just googled

    who cares if you can build a church in Saudi Arabia or not...that doesn't change the fact that these Muslims trying to open of the mosque are protected by freedom of religion.

    If they own the property, please tell me how on Earth the U.S. can stop them from building a Mosque without violating religious freedom?

    just grasping at straws, odds are they are not any zoning laws prohibition churches and mosques. Obviously if there were any zoning laws the Cordoba initiative wouldn't have bothered with that location in the first place.

    But you don't know, do you, and neither do I. I know many instances in which people or groups acquired property either ignorant of what they can do there or buying it in the false hope that because their cause is right and just that they would be able to get an exception.

    Zoning laws aren't the issue here, there is no zoning law that would prohibit a mosque.

In this case, I think the community board's already been consulted and they overwhelmingly like the idea."
