CAIR-Chicago participated in the Foundation Ceremony of the Ismaili Worship House and Center in Glenview along with Illinois Governor Blagojevich, Glenview’s village president, heads of the national and regional Ismaili organizations, and invited guests.
It is not surprising, but it is highly disappointing, that the plan to build a Shiite Muslim mosque in Glenview is not being welcomed by many residents in the area. It is not the first time that residents in Chicago suburbs have tried to shut down a plan to open a Muslim house of worship. The excuses have touched on a wide range of subjects, from the fear that mosques would foster terrorism to the typical high-traffic volume issue.
