Another one for the Wahhabi corridor

It's been months since I've seen a copy of the Muslim Link, the newspaper serving the Muslim community in the DC metro area - because the ethnic market where I occasionally shop no longer stocks it. However, I ate dinner at the Afghan Restaurant on Highway 1, where I found a stack of Muslim Link newspapers lying by the door.

The Wahhabi Corridor is the nickname given to Leesburg Pike, AKA Route 7, on account of the Muslim organizations and businesses located near Rout 7. The Muslim Link had a full-page advertisement for a fund-raising dinner for the Islamic Heritage Center, which plans to build a mosque right on Leesburg Pike, near the intersection with Baron Cameron Avenue. The address is 10602 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA.

Is there anyone who can do the legwork to investigate the Islamic Heritage Center in the way that Paul Sperry investigate another local mosque? (Scroll down to the bottom of the linked page)
