Imagine the gall of these Islamic supremacists. The very idea that the infidels should finance the second wave of 911 attacks on the American people again exhibits the contempt Rauf and his gang have for the filthy kuffar.
Remember slumlord Imam Rauf just had his slum buildings placed in receivership (despite getting taxpayer dollars to make repairs). We, the American people, fund his jihad junkets to terror states. And the GZM developer Gamal was evicted from his offices for non-payment. These grifters are scamming the system, big time.
Daisy the Con said on the ABC Sunday Morning News panel on the Ground Zero mosque:
KHAN: Because we don't want use taxpayer's money.
This is an outrageous statement (among many). Daisy Khan and Imam Rauf intend to float public debt to raise the money for the Ground Zero mega mosque (more here). Daisy Khan and her husband Imam Rauf have been ripping off the taxpayers for decades. They are being sued by Union City. Daisy and Rauf took millions of taxpayer monies -- they snagged more than $2 million in public financing to renovate low-income apartments. Rauf kept the money and never made the repairs. He took the money and forced good people to live with vermin and dilapidation.
They are unfit.
Rauf and his wife, Daisy the Con, listed their one-bedroom 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 that as many as 500 of its members prayed in that tiny one bedroom apartment (also listed as Daisy's residence). Rauf sought "church status" -- to avoid paying taxes.
But this? This will not happen.
Tens of thousands will protest the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corporation (LMDC). Let's get the details of the process. Who makes the decision and how? Stay tuned.
Developers of Ground Zero Mosque Apply for $5 Million Grant From 9/11 Fund to Rebuild Lower Manhattan… Weasal Zippers
(Daily Beast)- Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located one tenth of a mile from Ground Zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11th, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.
The audacious move stands to reignite the embers of a divisive debate that dominated headlines surrounding the 9th anniversary of the attacks this fall, say people vested in the issue.
The application was submitted under a “community and cultural enhancement” grant program administered by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corporation (LMDC), which oversaw the $20 billion in federal aid allocated in the wake of 9/11 and is currently doling out millions in remaining taxpayer funds for community development. The redevelopment board declined to comment on the application (as did officials from Park51), citing the still ongoing and confidential process of determining the grant winners.
Park51’s developers clearly had a legal right to apply for the grant. A list of Frequently Asked Questions that accompanied the application specifically states that religious organizations can make funding requests for capital projects “as long as the request is for a facility or portion of a facility that is dedicated to non-religious activities or uses.” According to an individual familiar with the Park51 application, it requests funds to cover a number of cultural, educational and community development aspects of the proposed 13-story building—but the prayer room is excluded from the grant application.
But the question on whether they could have is trumped by the question of whether they should have. The stated aim of the Park51 developers is to provide a community center for lower Manhattan’s 4,000 Muslim residents. Their own website explained that they understood the need to “appeal to the undecided, and change the conversation about Muslims in America.” It’s pretty clear that this play for federal dollars will generate none of that, starting with the lack of disclosure or community consultation before developers submitted their application, which was due November 5th.
“If Imam Feisal and his retinue want know why they’re not trusted, here’s yet another reason,” says Irshad Manji, author of The Trouble with Islam and Director of the Moral Courage Project at NYU, when I asked her about the grant proposal. “The New Yorkers I speak with have questions about Park51. Requesting money from public coffers without engaging the public shows a staggering lack of empathy—especially from a man who says he’s all about dialogue.”
