While New York City is still slated to host the trial of 9/11 planner and scumbag extraordinaire, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Gateway Pundit is now reporting that a mysterious group has purchased a building adjacent to Ground Zero with the hopes of turning the building into a mosque. Should the plan go through, it will be one of the biggest mosques in NYC.
The old Burlington Coat Factory building already serves as a place where some muslims pray and worship. With 55,000 square feet of air rights, the plan is to turn it into something that is supposed to resemble the local YMCA. Funny...last time I was at the YMCA, I didn't see anyone strapping on a bomb belt. But I digress...
The imam of this mini-mosque, Feisal Abdul Rauf, told the New York Times that he hopes to spend $150 million 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.’’ Striking? As in striking U.S. targets? What a wienie!
Records show that the 60-year-old imam paid $4.85 million for the building -- IN CASH. The additional funding Rauf has allegedly secured comes from unknown sources, although many of the mosques across the country are funded either directly or indirectly by Saudi Arabia. This is the nation that spawned 15 of the 19 murderers who killed almost 3,000 innocent people on 9/11.
I would love to know who sold the building because it appears that they also sold their soul. While I embrace capitalism, there are some things you just don't do for money. And I suggest that building a mosque next to sacred ground where innocent people were slaughtered by a bunch of jihadists is one of those things.
