Interesting. They want to call it "Cordoba House."
The Fall of Cordoba in 1236 is a signal event in the Muslim consciousness. The Islamic blogger Jaraad titles his blog about the controversy "The Fall of Cordoba House." Given that the "House" has yet to be built, it's clear what "The Fall" refers to.
The Caliphate of Cordoba, the greatest of Caliphates, fell with Cordoba. This event began the humiliation of Islam and its retreat back to nonentity in the Maghreb.
Calling this mosque, in this place, "Cordoba" is powerful magic.
