Yesterday I posted on the latest Islamic attack on the American people in the second wave of the Ground Zero mosque. Developers of the Ground Zero mega mosque applied for $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11th.
The $5 million Islamic supremacist request represents nearly one-third of all the $17 million that is now available. 265 groups have applied for the funding.
Note the morphing mosque narrative. For months Imam Rauf and his gang have been whining that the building destroyed in the attacks of 911 was not close to Ground Zero, but now they want to be included in the ground zero area’s geography. Got that, dirty kuffar?
Contact the LMDC – phone = 212 962 2300, fax = 212 962 2431 or 33
Ask them to send you a copy of the application that Park 51 nee Cordoba House submitted and the criteria they have for granting taxpayer dollars to those who apply for funding. Also, ask them if there are any other applications pending or that were funded for mosques to create cultural entities, and get those applications, award letters with all restrictions and the criteria they have for making such grants.
Ask them to be present when the committee meets to decide. It's our money -- demand an open forum.
Eric Shawn at FOX news has more:
In a statement, El-Gamal said he is, "…committed to exploring all sources of revenue and funding to build the community center," noting that the request for a reported $5 million would help provide "social service programs....such as domestic violence prevention, Arabic and other foreign language classes, programs and services for homeless veterans, two multi-cultural arts exhibits and immigration services."
El-Gamal did not specify exactly how much of the taxpayers' funds would be allocated to "build the community center."
"It's absolutely disgraceful," said an angry Congressman Peter King (R-NY) who is likely to be the new chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
"It goes entirely against the spirit of the fund," King told Fox News. "It's an affront to the memory of all those who were murdered on 9-11. There are so many worthwhile projects in lower Manhattan. This shows a gross insensitivity to the most fundamental feelings of New Yorkers and to those murdered on 9-11 it is a slap in the face that is a terrible insult."
King also notes that the reported $5 million request represents nearly one-third of all the $17 million that is now available. 265 groups have applied for the funding.
"He's going to take the money that I work for? That gets taken out of my paycheck, to fund something that I am completely and absolutely against? Not on my watch."
