Bulldozers be Unto Him

To make way for ever expanding number of pilgrims, it has been reported that in construction of a larger mosque, Saudi Arabia is to raze the Muslim Prophet Mohammed’s tomb.
The key Islamic heritage site, including Prophet Mohammed’s shrine, is to be bulldozed, as Saudi Arabia plans a $ 6 billion expansion of Medina’s holy Masjid an-Nabawi Mosque. However, Muslims remain silent on the possible destruction.
Well, it's not like Israel is involved. Muslims have a habit of staying quiet when their own rulers try to destroy ancient sites.
­Work on the Masjid an-Nabawi in Medina, is planned to start as soon as the annual Hajj pilgrimage comes to a close at the end of November. 
After the reconstruction, the mosque is expected to become the world’s largest building, with a capacity for 1.6 million people.
Hundreds of people get killed during the 'stoning of the devil' ritual of the pilgrimage. This is about to get interesting.

I also wonder if it's bringing us any closer to revealing the Hidden Imam.

Things have changed. The annual trampling of the faithful used to be a highlight of the Haj - now it's just boring.
