Zionist Conspiracy

Egyptian Muslim clerics are discouraging the building of the GZ mosque because it will encourage Americans to associate 9/11 with Islam in general, instead of individual terrorists.

Aside from the hackneyed “Zionist conspiracy” charge, Al Azhar has it right: from negative media attention to subliminal associations with the 9/11 strikes, the “9/11 mosque” has great potential to backfire on Islam. Many other Muslims agree. That Al Azhar has labeled it a “Zionist conspiracy”— an appellation usually reserved for especially heinous charges attributed to fellow Muslims, such as the strikes of 9/11 — is indicative of how absurd the mosque project must appear to them.

Y'know, I never thought of it that way.
