NEWS OUTRAGE! Islamic mosque to be built near 9/11 Ground Zero. MUSLIMS PLAN MOSQUE NEAR WORLD TRADE CENTER ATTACK, WILL NYC IRONWORKERS WHO WORKED ON THE "PILE' CONNECT TO THIS TRAVESTY, WHO WILL BUILD IT ?
CBS New York....In a building damaged by debris from the Sept. 11 airliners that brought down the World Trade Center and soon to become a 13-story mosque, some see the bridging of a cultural divide and an opportunity to serve a burgeoning, peaceful religious population. Others see a painful reminder of the religious extremism that killed their loved ones.
Anything having to do with that day, that place, carries enormous meaning. Now two Islamic organizations have partnered to build something that they say will bring some good from something very bad.
Organizers say the project will create a venue for mainstream Islam and a counterbalance to radicalism. It earned a key endorsement this week from influential community leaders. "This is a community center, a community and cultural center, which would include certainly prayer space for Muslims and we hope for non-Muslims as well, to bring about a new discourse in the relationship between the United States, New York City, and the Muslim world."
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the Cordoba Initiative and imam at Sufi Masjid al-Farah 245 West Broadway, MORE FROM THIS SOURCE........ Where did they get $100 million dollars for the new Mosque ?
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, born 1948, is an Egyptian-American imam, author, and activist. For 25 years, he has been Imam of Masjid al-Farah, a New York City mosque. He has written three books on Islam and its place in contemporary Western society, and has founded two non-profit organizations whose collective mission is to enhance the discourse on Islam in society. 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.
The money trail is an important question, (where is the $100 milion coming from), that must be answered by the Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg with more than a bland comment by one of his spokesmen, Andrew Brent, who quipped to the Times, “If it’s legal, the building owners have a right to do what they want.”
At the moment, the location is not designated a mosque, but rather an overflow prayer space for another mosque, Al Farah, at 245 West Broadway in TriBeCa, where Imam Feisal is the spiritual leader. Call this creeping annexation. On 9/11, the Burlington building, with 80 employees in its basement, is where a piece of a plane plunged through the roof, from either Flight 11 or Flight 175 crashing into the south tower at 9:03 a.m..
One of the investors for future oncoming funds is listed as the Cordoba Initiative, defined as an ‘’interfaith group’’ – and founded by Imam Feisal. Cordoba is the name militant Muslims often invoke when they recall the glory of Muslim empire in the centuries they occupied Spain.
The source of money matters as a significant part of the hundreds of mosques being built and already erected in this country double up as cultural Islamic centers for distributing literature– Islamist propaganda in fact—from Bay Ridge Brooklyn to Detroit, and for schooling growing Muslim minorities. They house Imams of unknown origin and education, many of whom do not speak a word of English but preach in Arabic and Urdu — radical messages, it often turns out.
