A leading Moscow imam, Ildar Ayautdinov, has threatened to have Muslims conduct prayers in Orthodox churches if they don’t get more mosques in Moscow, and added: “There is a need to construct mosques, otherwise something bad will supersede spiritual development.” Something bad, eh?

And from NY we have this:
A crack in the mosque wall? It seems that Hisham Elzanaty is the real power, the real owner, behind the Ground Zero mega mosque, and he is looking at a new location for this insulting monstrosity. (Pamela has the story)
