Muslims -World Trade Center - #1696 - Mosque Going Up in New York City Building Damaged on 9/11 - Breitbart

A mosque and cultural center is planned near the World Trade Center site in a building damaged by airplane debris on Sept. 11. A lower Manhattan community board committee said Wednesday that it supported the $100 million project. It is aimed at creating a space for the neighborhood's growing Muslim population.

Others see a painful reminder of the religious extremism that killed their loved ones......but some 9/11 victims' families said they were angered that it would be built so close to where their relatives died.  "I don't like it," said Evelyn Pettigano, who lost a sister in the attacks, during a phone interview on Thursday. "I'm not prejudiced. ... It's too close to the area where our family members were murdered.".....But the growing number of congregants at the only other nearby mosque, open only one day a week, created a need for an additional space for Muslim prayer in the neighborhood, said Daisy Khan, the executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and a board member of the Cordoba Initiative, the two organizations sponsoring the project.
