Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

A Mosque by Any Other Name . . .

If the builders of the proposed Mosque near Ground Zero have pure intentions, why did they originally want to call is Cordoba House.

Update: a commentator points us to an article in Tablet on the history of Medieval Cordoba.  Apparently the myth of Medieval Muslim Spain being a haven of toleration is an invention of 19th Century Germans.  Why am I not surprised.
