Show of the week: Frontline: The Man Behind the Mosque

Frontline profiles Sharif El-Gamal, the Brooklyn-born real estate developer behind the proposed Islamic community center near the site of the World Trade Center.

In 2010, proposed construction of an Islamic community center near the site of the World Trade Center—the so-called Ground Zero Mosque—became a flash point for controversy. Frontline profiles Brooklyn-born real estate developer Sharif El-Gamal, who has battled to keep the project going despite hostility from anti-Islam activists and family members of 9/11 victims. A second report spotlights former FBI agent Ali Soufan, a key player in the war on terrorism and one of only eight agents in the 2001 bureau who spoke Arabic.
