Are Saudis Trying To Move Ground Zero Victory Mosque?

Nice Deb has links from the Daily Telegraph and New York Post that indicate the Saudi King wants the Victory Mosque at Ground Zero moved away from the site of where Muslims slaughtered nearly 3,000 people on 9/11.

Apparently, the Saudi royal family thinks moving the mosque to the former St. Vincent's Medical Centre would be a good PR move.

It would be good PR, but it also raises the question in my mind, why are the Saudis getting involved in the mosque site? Is this a sign that perhaps the very idea of the mosque came from the Saudis and other Middle Eastern Muslim nations? Keep in mind that Imam Rauf went there this past summer on our dime for a "goodwill" mission, and I'm sure fundraising was part of that trip.
