Okay just because you don't agree with what they say doesn't mean that they're a troll.

Will the actual clock, observatory, and other components that make up the top be fabricated off-site?

btw, how long it takes to demolish a 16 storey building? i have seen that they don't normally use dynamites near the Mosque. are they bringing it down brick by brick? that might take little longer (the building is still visible)

Not to be agree is a thing and it's not the problem, "hijack" a pic from new information bring by DreaM1981 is another thing, it's not respecful.

BTW only Saudis are able to decide about this tower not the rest of the world.

"O our Lord! I have made some of my offspring to dwell in a valley without cultivation (Makkah), by Thy Sacred House; in order, O our Lord that they may establish regular prayer: so fill the hearts of some among men with love towards them, and feed them with Fruits: so that they may give thanks. (37)

رَّبَّنَآ إِنِّىٓ أَسۡكَنتُ مِن ذُرِّيَّتِى بِوَادٍ غَيۡرِ ذِى زَرۡعٍ عِندَ بَيۡتِكَ ٱلۡمُحَرَّمِ رَبَّنَا لِيُقِيمُواْ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ فَٱجۡعَلۡ أَفۡـِٔدَةً۬ مِّنَ ٱلنَّاسِ تَہۡوِىٓ إِلَيۡہِمۡ وَٱرۡزُقۡهُم مِّنَ ٱلثَّمَرَٲتِ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَشۡكُرُونَ (٣٧)
