oh, i don't mind a mosque SHOULD NOT be built at ground zero, unfortunate for you guys who want to see this building personally, that it is been built in Mecca, but then i am not allowed in Area 51 either, i would really wanna see what's in there, will they allow me?

Sane people don´t hate muslims, but they hate anyone who is murdering in God´s name no matter the religion. And I hardly doubt that you would allow build a church or synagogue next to Masjid Al-Haram... You know this is time for reciprocity. You know this is not a right time to build a mosque at ground zero. But maybe building church, synagogue and mosque right next to it would symbolise peace between religions.

That photo of the mosque... does it mean that it´s going to be extended?

And now I´m asking Mecca´s residents: Can you feel the sheer size of the tower or not? Because there is not anything you could compare it to.... Just curious

There is a difference between a military base and a whole city. That sort of intolerance really upsets me.

There is no difference. The motives are the same.

Well it looks like!

This pic is by the Pakistani journalist Jahangir Khan http://www.flickr.com/photos/jkhi/59...n/photostream/

It's good to know who took pics, it's the rule of SSC!

Gross, ridiculous, distrubingly out of proportion. Probably the most ugly skyscraper which was ever buildt. My 2 cents on it.

Is there another large tower going up on the other side of the Kaaba? Looks like a very large construction site.
