Mayor Bloomberg fights for Cordoba against Muslim extremists

I’m going to write about Jeffrey Goldberg’s analysis, too simple for my taste, of “what would Osama want” regarding the Cordoba Initiative. But now I have the feeling that my post on Goldberg’s take on Park51 will also suffer from simplicity, since this news punctures our reductionist thinking with real pizazz. From Memri, emphasis mine:

Several clerics from Al-Azhar have rejected the construction of a mosque near New York’s Ground Zero.

A member of the Al-Azhar Islamic Research Center, Dr. Abd Al-Muwati Biyumi, said that the mosque’s construction could connect Islam and 9/11, while Islam is innocent of the deed.

He also called the plan a “Zionist plot.”

Well, yes, now that Jeffrey Goldberg is involved, it’s official.
