So one mans blatant lying or schizophrenia has led to this stupid tower being built, crazy how things turn out.
Who are you to say that others and their faiths are stupids?

And if Christians want revenge throwing an airplane in that building, what the people who have defended the September 11 attacks would say.

This tower is huge. Allthough I feel architecture wise it could have been more islamic especially considering the location. To me it looks like Big Ben + empire state with some islamic architecture on the top portion.

Just putting a crescent moon at the top doesn't make it a Islamic architecture. This tower would have suited London more than Mecca.

Ugh, in those last few photos you can see how unbalanced and awkward this tower looks, especially the top section. It looks offset from the rest of the tower.

May be. But it reminds so much of Gothic style of architecture, closely resembling Big Ben (Elizabeth Tower) of London.

The architects of this building could have used more of Islamic elements in the architecture or at least should have made it a modern design.
