You are right about the Ahmedis. Like the Ismaelis and Bahais, are a much lesser threat than are the wahabi sunnis,salafists and shias.

The problem is that they are a minority sect of islam and persecuted by their "fellow moslems" in many parts of the moslem speaking world. In some countries they are not considered moslems at all.

My concern is that this or any mosque would be like a Trojan horse and an easy target for wahabi infiltration,intimidation and eventual takeover that has occured in almost all of the U.S. mosques.The authorities would not interfere with any inter-religious "disputes" no matter how odious. Because of deep pocketed Gulf wahabi arabs, there is no limit to their ability to fund any ruthless acts.

Therefore I conclude that the only good mosques are the ones that are never built, like the one in Boston, Massachusetts that remains incomplete with weeds growing on it like an unattended cemetary.
