Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is the founder of the Cordoba Initiative which is currently seeking to build a cultural center just two blocks away from what is know as 'ground zero' in New York City. Many people in the US oppose the so-called 'ground zero mosque'.

He talks to al Jazeera's Sami Zeidan about the controversial project, 9/11 and the media, Muslims in the US, building bridges, allegations that he supports terrorism, US foreign policy, and the recent Quran burning.
