It had all but gone away, in the Media anyway, that Ground Zero Mosque. Some said it will never be paid for, and the truth is, they have really not raised ANY money for it. What money they have raised, they are paying themselves with.
So what to do, what to do? Can't get enough Insane Lunatics to pay for your Trophy, wait, I have an Idea. Lets get the stupid Americans to pay for it. Yes. Lets get the stupid Americans to pay for the Symbol of Victory, right near the place where we KILLED THREE THOUSAND of them. Hey, we'll tell them that we will be doing all those Liberal agenda, feel good stuff. You know, they are not paying for a Mosque. No, no, no. We'll tell them that they are helping to fund Domestic Violence Programs. Yeah I know. They are too stupid to realized we do not care about Women. Shh. Services for Homeless Veterans, two multi-cultural Art Exhibits and, uh, oh they love this one, tell them they will help fund Immigration Services. Go ahead. They will buy it. And we will have even more money to pay ourselves.
Do you think it'll work?
Of course. At least with the Stupid Liberals. This is an OUTREACH. A GOOD thing. They can be a part of it. Show those stupid Republicans and, what do they call them? Uh, yeah, right, right, 'Bitter Clingers', and I love this one, 'Tea Baggers'. Show them that they are much smarter and better than them for seeing beyond those 'Bitter Clingers' uh, 'Hate filled, Racist, Bigoted, Islamophbic ignorant views. Both men laugh.
Folks, here it is. According to CNN - Islamic community center developer seeks federal funding November 22, 2010By Allan Chernoff, CNN Senior Correspondent
The developer behind the controversial Islamic community center and mosque planned for Lower Manhattan has requested federal funding through the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation to support the project known as Park51.So they want YOU to pay for it now. You do not want it anywhere near Ground Zero, and they want you to PAY to put it there. Did that Greek Church receive any of that money?
The funding would come from money the Department of Housing and Urban Development allocated to help rebuild the neighborhood after the 9/11 attacks.
"Park51 has applied for a Lower Manhattan Development Corporation grant," said Sharif El-Gamal, CEO of SOHO Properties, the developer behind the Islamic center. In a statement, El-Gamal said the money would "in part fund social service programs such as domestic violence programs, Arabic and other foreign language classes, programs and services for homeless veterans, two multi-cultural art exhibits and immigration services."What about that Greek Orthodox Church that was destroyed on 9-11? Do not give me that garbage about Separation of Church and State if you are actually considering this request from Project51. By the way, WHY Project51? Why the Name?
The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation received more than 265 applications seeking more than $175 million for community and cultural programs, though the LMDC has only $17 million of federal funding to allocate.
"We are now turning to the challenging but important task of sorting through the applications to identify those that address long-standing community and cultural needs," said Avi Schick, chairman of LMDC.
The grants will range from $100,000 to $1 million, according to Julie Menin, chair of Community Board 1 and a member of the LMDC board. Among the criteria used to judge applications, Menin said, are financial viability, job creation, revitalizing the community and a track record of service in Lower Manhattan.
"We have funded museums, public schools, programs to help small businesses hurt after 9/11," said Menin.
First, the the Cordoba House, what it will be called, is a name of a great Military Victory, as we talked about in the past. The Meaning of “Cordoba” for this Mosque is actually the name of a City of Spain that was ceased and converted to Islam. It IS a symbol of Victory.
Second, 51? Well, in the Qur'an?
Qur'an (5:51) - "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people."
An online report said Park51 had requested $5 million, but neither the developer nor LMDC board members would confirm that amount.So whatever money that they have received, they have just pocketed. You know, to "expand its Board of Directors to plan, manage and oversee." Now they want YOU to help them pay for it.
The LMDC plans to decide how to allocate the $17 million "towards the end of the first quarter of next year," said Menin.
Park51 has yet to raise significant funds for the community center located two blocks north of Ground Zero, a project that could cost $100-million.
"Park51 has not launched a formal fundraising program and is currently in the process of expanding its Board of Directors to plan, manage and oversee such efforts," said El-Gamal, adding that the project has not yet applied for federal tax-exempt status, but plans to do so "in the coming weeks."
You know folks, in a REAL and SANE America, we would have told these Idiots to go pound sand a LONG time ago. This would not have ever even been considered a possible TOPIC of CONVERSATION, let alone actually considering American money being requested to help PAY for it. But we do not live in a SANE America. Not just yet. The Kooks are still running the Show. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
