LOL i thought exactly the same, i don't see why the building next to the Kabba is wrong in any way, its one of the signs of judgment day you know.

Because when the Hadj takes place, and also on other times in the year itīs very crowded and they donīt have enough hotels etc. to house all people in. So with this gigantic building they will be able to house alot more of people.

So no it hasnīt got anything to do with wanting to make it a tourist view of the Kaīaba.

Its a perfect place for a huge hotel, - there are millions of visitors each year, and as the center for one of the biggest religions in the world, I suggest you be careful how you express your comments, ''hoping for an earthquake'' - you stupid child.

No place here for your prejudice comments.

Of course building such a huge building complex just next to the haram mosque was a grave mistake, the haram should have been surrounded by at least half a kilometer of building free space, but its already too late now .. all they can do now is to stop constructing more buildings. I hope this proposal sees the light:

no building stays forever. i guess when the need arise, this building will also be demolished to give way for the Mosque. nothing is more important than giving space for the pilgrims coming to pray.

You mean that Las Vegas uses a lot of details that come from old Islamic architecture. Therefore Las Vegas looks like Mecca, not the other way around.

No that is NOT what I'm saying! That's even exactly the opposite of what I just said! Please read it again -_-

I'm saying that some Las Vegas buildings where inspired by old Islamic architecture and not als Marco Polo stated, that this building looks like Las Vegas. I'm saying that Las Vegas looks like this building.
