Tell me again where this thug is getting 125 million dollars? El-Gamal is a common criminal who is now being evicted for non-payment of rent for his Soho office. Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the Islamic supremacist mega mosque on Ground Zero, the Cordoba House, has a rap sheet a mile long. And his financier, Hisham Elzanaty, was a large funder of Hamas (exposed in the Holy Land terror funding trial) while defrauding medicare out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Extremist imam Rauf has just been hit with a lawsuit by Union City. Rauf is (among other things) a rat and vermin slumlord, whose tenants live without basic services like hot water. He scammed New Jersey politicians and got taxpayer dollars for rehabilitation of his infested, dilapidated buildings in Union City and Palisades Park, but still his victimized tenants live in squalor. So where's the money?
Rauf and his wife, Daisy the Con, listed their apartment as a mosque in order to conduct what amounts to tax fraud. Rauf got the wildly valuable tax-exempt status for his Muslim organization after deceiving the IRS. He claimed as many as 500 of its members prayed in that tiny one bedroom apartment (also listed as Daisy's residence). Rauf sought "church status" -- an official IRS term for a house of worship of any religion (though stealth Rauf, I am sure, is working the feds to change that term) -- for ASMA, his org. The feds granted the request.
"Church status" is more than just an exemption -- it means never having to pay taxes, file returns or reveal the sources of a congregation's money or how it's spent, according to the Washington-based Investigative Project on Terrorism, which discovered the group's startling claims on the IRS form it filed seeking the special status.
What grifters. And these supremacists intend to use public (you and me, the filthy kaffir) funds for their victory mosque.
