From the CI website homepage http://www.cordobainitiative.org/
”Cordoba Initiative (CI) aims to achieve a tipping point in Muslim-West relations within the next decade, steering the world back to the course of mutual recognition and respect and away from heightened tensions.”
If they sincerely want to build mutual respect and reduce tension then don’t build a mosque within the former shadows of an American icon destroyed by radical Muslim terrorists.
Anyone that thinks the well intentioned folks at CI didn’t factor this into the equation and still elected to proceed is incredibly naive. I’m insulted because of the duplicity of their stated purpose.
