'Mecca Time' to Replace GMT?

Here’s another Muslim building for conservatives to worry about: Saudi Arabia is building a giant clock tower in Mecca, and some Islamic scholars hope that “Mecca time” will replace Greenwich Mean Time as the accepted start of each day. The clock will be at the top of the Royal Mecca Clock Tower, which will be the second tallest building in the world when it’s completed and will include hotels, shopping malls, and conference centers. The clock will begin ticking on Thursday.
