U.S. Taxpayers Asked to Subsidize Ground Zero Mosque


Chutzpah is the Yiddish word for unbelievable gall, insolence, and — Obama’s favorite word — audacity.
We now can add another definition to the above for the word “chutzpah”: Ground Zero Mosque.
Doug Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network reports on November 24, 2010:

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his cadre of associates are rubbing salt in a still-gaping American wound through his plans to erect an iconic symbol of Islamic conquest in the shadows of the former World Trade Center…the Cordoba Initiative (as it was once known) [now called Park 51] is asking you, the American taxpayer, to subsidize it.
An application for a $5 million in federal grant money was reportedly made on or about November 5, 2010 with the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) by Sharif El-Gamal, the developer of the Ground Zero mosque and Rauf associate.
The LMDC was formed in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks by former Governor Pataki former Mayor Giuliani to help plan the rebuilding and revitalization of Lower Manhattan. It is a joint State-City corporation governed by a 16-member Board of Directors, half appointed by the Governor of New York and half by the Mayor of New York.
They have yet to be awarded any funding by the LMDC as the confidential review process is still underway. Nonetheless, the mere fact that El-Gamal and his associates applied for grant money is raising some eyebrows. Congressman Peter King (R-NY), the presumptive new chairman  of the House Homeland Security Committee called it “absolutely disgraceful,” and added that “[i]t goes entirely against the spirit of the fund” in an interview with 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.”
The grant application was submitted under the Lower Manhattan Community and Cultural Enhancement Program that is administered by the LMDC. That program was established “to provide up to a total of $17 million in grants through a competitive process to not-for-profit and government organizations engaged in cultural or community programs or projects.” The Ground Zero mosque project is asking for nearly a third of the available money. Will they get it? Some of it? All of it? It’s indeed possible, according to research and interviews I’ve conducted this week.
A source close to a member of the LMDC General Advisory Council confirmed that an application “was submitted and met all of the criteria for consideration.” Additionally, “the applicants were extremely careful to structure the grant application to include the request for only the portion of the proposed structure that will not be used for religious activities.” This source stated that there is serious consideration being given to awarding at least some of the requested funds, although “there is some additional financial information needed from the applicants that has yet to be received.”

Next thing that the jihadists will do is to make Americans pay for the rope that’ll be used to hang us….
Here’s my answer to Imam Rauf and his associate Sharif El-Gamal:

Oh, one last thing:
NBC will honor the Ground Zero Mosque developer Sharif El-Gamal as one of its “People of the Year” tomorrow (Thanksgiving) night.

Well, I’m trying to remain calm as I head home in the snow, which in itself is an event here in the Pacific Northwest. Words fail me for what is becoming of our country….TSA gropers, Muslim women exempt, man-made terror or whatever they call it, DREAM Act, open borders, etc…just PISSED beyond belief. But I will remain calm or I might hit a driver on the way home!
And NBC – SUCK IT!!!

I was going to say that they are inviting us to oversee our deaths…but as Eowyn so eloquently stated: Next thing that the jihadists will do is to make Americans pay for the rope that’ll be used to hang us…. I see it happening though. The Muslims are taking over from within, using our laws to advance themselves and our government is helping them because they have something in common. Elitists are Luciferian and worship Satan, Muslims believe that in ridding the world of infidels and implementing Sharia Law, they will usher in their messiah. Who is to come but… Read more »

Yup! the islamisation of America. They do not need to show faces or Id to board flights, no groping for religious political reasons. nasa ordered to work on Muslim relations. Obama’s speeches regarding Muslim holy days, passing remarks about christian holidays. Obama’s confessed religion of Islam, his remark about being back home in muslim indonesia. The conquest mosque next to WTC now paid for in part by us the us, the infidels. I’m beginning to see a pattern here, anyone else? Is it illegal to be a white anglophone middle class christian yet?

It is difficult indeed for me to find the words adequate to express my contempt,and disgust at the powers that be who not only would allow the abominable Mosque to be built, but now have the incomrehensibly bold-faced arrogance and presumption to ask us to contribute for the erection of this abomination on our American soil. To hell with the proposed Mosque and all who would want to see it erected !
