As I prepare for my upcoming sabbatical (more about that later in sha'Allah!), during which I intend to spend most of my time in my hometown of New York City, I was pleasantly surprised by a recent commentary by CNN's Fareed Zakaria (a Harvard man I believe!) on the Lower Manhattan Islamic Center controversy. Check it out.

JazakAllah khayran for the link Sheikh Taha. If someone out there just can't get enough of the politicization of masjids:

And an interview with Eboo Patel and Glenn Greenwald's accompanying commentary:
