it should have been built in Saudi Arabia then.
But no doubt the muttawa would have burnt the place down in a display of religious intolerance.

You can't build it there because Saudi is too intolerant to tolerate it.

OMG, the Austrians fell into the Saudi trap.
I suppose there were political considerations .... like with the King-Fahd-Academy in Germany under Schröder;(((

Saudi Arabia creates religious tolerance centers around the world, but they are the worst people to tolerate other religions.Recently,a Colombian soccer player was arrested in Saudi Arabia Monday for displaying religious tattoos.
Colombian-born Juan Pablo Pino was arrested by the Saudi moral police after customers in a Riyadh shopping mall expressed outrage over the sports player's religious tattoos, which included the face of Jesus of Nazareth on his arm.
Saudi Arabia is one of the most adament countries in the Muslim world, and according to one of the country's most respected clerics, Nayimi Sheik Mohammed, Saudi law prohibits tattoos,Chrsitian crosses,Jewish and Christian Bibles,Rosaries- no matter what their form, and every player and visitor has to abide with these rules.
The cleric went on to stress the importance of respecting the status of "Sharia" (Islamic law) and that the tattoos must be covered at all times,or face the consequences..
Pino, who plays in the Saudi league, has expressed "deep sorrow" for his actions and said he respects the laws of the country. He was released from custody when a team delegate arrived and discussed the matter with the police.
A similar event occurred in Saudi Arabia last year when a Romanian player kissed the tattoo of a cross he had on his arm after scoring a goal, which also caused public outrage.
