#1 nearby Anglican church St. Andrews

To my mild surprise (don't know much about Abu Dhabi), it seems they're building a second, bigger church which will be next door not to this mosque, but -- conveniently for the umpteen denominations they host -- to workers' housing.

#2 It is surprising but its still a mosque doing mosque things. A sop to the West?

#3 a mosque doing mosque things

yes

I don't think the mosque named after Mary will have a female prayer leader nor will it likely preach against the 'women are inferior' type verses in the koran
