"It's all part of a Zionist plot "to divide the already divided Arab world," he revealed, according to translations of the interview by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

The controversial Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero cleared a significant hurdle Tuesday when the city Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously declined to protect the 152-year-old building site on historic grounds.
