I see the morphing mosque story continues to ...... morph. First it's a prayer space, then it's a mosque (a prayer space is a mosque); the radical Imam said there would be no foreign funding, now a huge portion will be foreign funding; the radical Imam advocates for tolerance, but in his book he advocates for the sharia (which is radically intolerant). And so on.
The latest? The September 11, 2011 ground breaking date that is now being disavowed as a vast right wing conspiracy fabrication. As if ..... we could think up this outrageous affront?
Just for knowing, Daisy said it.
PLAN FOR MOSQUE NEAR WTC SITE MOVES AHEAD Daily News (New York), May 6, 2010 NEWS; Pg. 12, 417 words, BY JOE JACKSON and BILL HUTCHINSON DAILY NEWS WRITER, Lexis/Nexus (hat tip Ralph)
Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, who helped found the Cordoba Initiative following the 9/11 attacks, said the project is intended to foster better relations between the West and Muslims.
Daisy Khan, executive director of the Cordoba Initiative, said donations from prestigious groups such as the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund would pay for the construction.
Khan said the project has received little opposition. "Whatever concerns anybody has, we have to make sure to educate them that we are an asset to the community," Khan said.
Khan said her group hopes construction on the project will begin by the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
More reliable sources on Daisy Khan's suggesting groundbreaking on 9/11/11, this one from the day before the Daily News story in USA Today:
The Muslim organizations plan to announce the groundbreaking later this year, possibly to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the attacks, Khan said.
Got that? So that's why on July 20, Media Matters quotes the lying Khan, saying:
HEADLINE: Fox follows right-wing blogs' baseless claim that Muslim center "plan[s] to launch" on anniversary of 9-11. Media Matters (but Truth is reviled)
However, Daisy Khan, executive director of one of the organizations leading the project, told Media Matters that the allegation is "absolutely false" and that "the timeline has yet to be determined."
