Arab Reactions to the New York Islamic Center Controversy

Roundup of Arab reactions to the New York Islamic Center (Cordoba Initiative) controversy:
  1. What the Arab Newspapers Say (Economist, 19 August 2010)
    "HAVING largely ignored the story in recent weeks, the Arab press has begun to take note of the controversy over plans for Cordoba House, an Islamic centre near ground zero in New York, after Barack Obama spoke out on the issue. The commentary thus far has mixed consternation that the project is meeting so much opposition with caution about how those behind it should proceed."
