*** Join SIOA and FDI on Sepember 11, 2010 at 2pm, on Park Place (between Church and West Broadway) as we pay our respects to the murdered and demonstrate against the Ground Zero mega mosque opening on September 11, 2011. ***
Think about this. The duplicitous Imam erecting a triumphal mosque in the shadow of what were the world's tallest buildings for a time, is funded by the very same Islamic supremacists who attacked and brought down those two buildings that housed a small city. 50,000 people worked in the buildings, while another 200,000 visited or passed through each day. The complex had its own zip code, 10048.
On September 11, 2001, that all came to a crashing, horrible end, when Islamic jihad brought the war to our shores and murdered 2,998 American citizens here at home. 10 years later, Islamic supremacists will open a 15-story victory mosque on September 11, 2011.
From a conference call with Berntsen and Rep. Peter King, R-L.I.:
“I am concerned about the fact that Al Qaeda and other militant organizations will target that mosque. They will infiltrate people into the mosque,” Berntsen said. “Once they have done that they will petition to bring their own mullahs in, or imams, and have them emigrate into the United States using our immigration law against us. I think it will be foolish to not recognize the fact that this mosque at Ground Zero will be a magnet for militants, that they will attempt to do this to establish themselves literally feet away from what is hallowed ground in New York City.”
“Militants are using these mosques. They are using front organizations against us. They are using the west’s respect and tolerance for all religions against us,” Berntsen said. “We have to continue to respect everyone’s religious beliefs and allow them to have the ability to practice religions. We also at the same time have to be thoughtful about security, where we allow these facilities to be. We would not have allowed a Shinto shrine to be placed at the front gate of Pearl Harbor.”
I wonder if Berntsen knows how right he is. Righter than he knows. Al Qaeda doesn't have to infiltrate the mosque, they are already in. The Attorney General must examine and investigate the alleged ties and funding by Xenel Corporation and Imam Rauf and Daisy Khan. Who is Xenel? They fund the Imam and .....
The website lists Xenel Industries Ltd. as a primary donor to the Al-Falah Program. Xenel, a Saudi owned conglomerate, "provides development, manufacturing, investment, trading and services throughout a wide range of areas of interest" ranging from healthcare and infrastructure to oil and real estate, according to the company's website (www.xenel.com).
On December 10, 2002, the Orlando Sentinel published an article describing the research of a local trade union regarding Xenel, who had just been awarded a $100 million contract to build the city of Orlando a new state-of the-art convention center. The article reveals that Xenel CEO Abdullah Alireza sits on the executive board of Dar al-Maal al-Islami (DMI), a bank based in Switzerland. Haydar Mohamed bin Laden, half brother of Osama bin Laden, also sits on the twelve member executive board.
According to State Department records and the August 2002 brief filed by the families of 9/11 victims, DMI is involved in "al Qaeda financing through several of its subsidiaries, including […] Faisal Islamic Bank and Al Shamal Islamic Bank." During the 2001 trial of those suspected in the 1998 embassy bombings in East Africa, Faisal Islamic Bank was implicated directly in terrorist activities by former al Qaeda operatives: Ahmed al-Fadl, a finance manager for al Qaeda, testified that al Qaeda accounts in Khartoum were held at Faisal Islamic Bank.
Xenel also funds The Cordoba Initiative and Faisal and Khan's ASMA supremacist group as well. This, according to the World Economic Forum:
The Xenel Corporation, and others... endorsed projects: (hat tip to Lawrence)
1. ASMA Society: Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow
American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA)’s Cordoba Initiative proposed to convene young Muslim leaders from the US and the broader Muslim world to expand its network of Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow (MLT). The mission of the MLT is to foster a unified, uniquely American voice of Islam capable of accelerating the development of a healthy Islamic identity that is both western and closely connected to Muslim communities worldwide. MLT will act as a platform and network of emerging young Muslim leaders who are committed to this mission and have the capacity to act as change agents.

This connection between Xenel and al Qaeda, according to the Orlando Sentinel, was persuasive enough that the city of Orlando decided to cancel the contract it had previously awarded to Xenel. The involvement Bin Laden-tied Xenel led to the cancellation of a different 100 million dollar project in Florida. If such ties would cancel a convention center, why not a 100 million dollar Islamic supremacist mega mosque at the site of largest attack on American soil by these same players?
- Plans for a $100 million, 250,000-square-foot convention center in the Kissimmee-St. Cloud area near Orlando have been scrapped over claims that the developer has links to terrorism.
The Osceola county commission voted to abandon a proposed partnership with Xentury City Development Co. Officials of Local 362 of the Employees Union alleged that the CEO of Xentury's Saudi-owned parent firm may have ties to a bank that reportedly funds terrorist activities.
Current CEO Kahlid Alireza of Xenel is mentioned in the "Golden Chain" list.
The "Golden Chain" or a list purported sponsors of al Qaeda that was seized in March 2002 raid by Bosnian police authorities of the premises of the Benevolence International Foundation in Sarajevo. The list includes at least 20 top Saudi and Gulf State financial sponsors including bankers, businessmen, and former ministers. Part of the list included computer file titles "Tarekh Osama" or "Osama History", but the appellation "Golden Chain" itself is due to al Qaeda defector Jamal al-Fadl, who vouched for its authenticity; the FBI later also pronounced the document as genuine

Union questions come as talks over 'labor peace' appear to stall
KISSIMMEE — Osceola County's attorney will examine union claims of alleged ties between the owners of Xentury City Development Co. and the family of Osama Bin Laden.
"We aren't alleging anything," says Neal Kwatra, a Washington-based senior research analyst for the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees International. "We don't want to characterize this. We are just providing reproductions of publicly available facts."
Xentury City is the company selected to build the $100 million Osceola County Convention Center. Its parent corporation is Saudi Arabia-based Xenel Industries.[...]
Shipley describes a 90-page packet of information that appears to indirectly tie Xentury's parent company [Xenel] to "less than desirable individuals, businesses and organizations."
Shipley says the union officials would not leave their information packet with him, "on the advice of their attorney."
The commissioner says he invited the union leaders to present the information at the commission meeting.
Morty Miller, president of Local 362, and Kwatra declined. Both men say they feel the information needs to be presented in its entirety in a calm, dispassionate way. "We wanted to sit with the county attorney and walk her through all the information," says Kwatra. "We didn't want a 'he said, she said,' circus-like atmosphere. We were discreet; we didn't take this to the media."
The union research in question reportedly describes a "close working relationship" in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, between two wealthy families: the Alireza family and the bin Laden family.
Although the bin Laden family name is now forever tied to Osama bin Laden, it is also known in Saudi Arabia as a $5 billion global construction enterprise launched by Mohammed bin Laden, an illiterate masonry worker and the father of 54 children, including Osama.
The bin Laden family link to Xentury City [Xenel] as reportedly outlined by the union goes through several connections:
• One major shareholder in the Al Shamal bank founded by Osama bin Laden and others is the Faisal Bank.
• A trust holds an ownership interest in the Faisal bank.
• One member of the board of supervisors of the trust is Abdullah Alireza.
