I bet it will show up sooner than we expect and the Moslems will demand New York as another of their 'sacred cities' referring to the miraculous flight and landing there of al-Buraq (Mahomet's heavenly steed) with a group of rightly-guided Moslems on their way to paradise on 11.09.2001.The Saudi scholars will no doubt corroborate the story with clear signs from the infallible Quran and other Islamically impeccable evidence.
