Mosques & McDonald's

Reader comment on item: [Mosque Mischief and] Counting Mosques

Submitted by Alo Kievalar (Saudi Arabia), Feb 4, 2003 at 11:40

According to latest figures as provided by the site

there are currently more than 1200 mosques in the USA. These figures were compiled, again according to the above site, by CAIR in Washington, DC.

What's interesting about this figure is to compare it with another figure: currently in the ENTIRE Middle East, there's around 120 McDonald's franchises in operation, about 1/10th the number of mosques in the US.

Now, I don't know what conclusions you can draw from this. But whatever they are, they can't be good.
