Super-Mosque Planned for Ground Zero

with 2 comments

A mysterious Muslim group with unknown sponsors has purchased building steps away from where the World Trade Center once stood (Ground Zero) in order to turn it into potentially one of the largest New York City mosques.

At the moment. the old Burlington Coat Factory building already serves as a mini-mosque.

The Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, told the New York Times that he has assembled several million dollars to turn it into ‘’an Islamic center near the city’s most hallowed piece of land that would stand as one of ground zero’s more unexpected and striking neighbors.’’

Records show that the 61-year-old Imam paid $4.85 million in cash for it along with 50,000 square feet of air rights and enough financing. Rauf plans an ambitious project of $150 million, he said, akin to the Chautauqua Institution, the 92 Street Y or the Jewish Community Center.

The countries of origin that supplied the financing has not been revealed. Most US mosques, including many in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx are funded directly or indirectly by Saudi Arabia the country to which 15 of the 19 hijackers who bombed the World Trade Center belonged. The UAE, Qatar and Iran are other major sponsors across the USA.

A spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Brent gave the statement, “If it’s legal, the building owners have a right to do what they want.”

Is that so? In that case if Political Correctness and stupid politicians are allowed to win out the only thing left to do is allow the mysterious Muslim group to spend billions if necessary to build the grandest Mosque in all the land. After it is finished slam two jet planes destined for the Middle East into it.

Four would be better.

  1. Not bad, I passed this on to a comrade of mine, and he actually bought me lunch because I found this for him, so let me rephrase: Thanks for lunch.
