More taxation for Islamization as we told you about here in 2010. Gadi Adelman writing at Family Security Matters has more disturbing waste of taxpayer money via U.S. Taxpayers Subsidize Overseas Mosques.
The story of the U.S. State Department funding mosques overseas was uncovered in July 2010 when reporter Justin Farmer from ABC affiliate WSBTV Channel 2 in Atlanta Georgia did an investigative report. Farmers story focused on how the U.S. was spending its tax payer dollars while supposedly trying to cut the budget.
The U.S. budget is so bad that we need to cut $487 billion in defense spending, but Hillary Clinton signed a check for $770 million from the U.S. State Departments USAID program to rebuild Egypts sewer system. Funny I thought our own infrastructure here in the U.S. is in dire need of repair.
But what was supposed to be a sewer rebuild is much more. The USAID website shows both before and after pictures of one such mosque in Cairo, Egypt.
The Saleh Talai Mosque in historic Islamic Cairo, dating back to the 10th century, is now active, and open for prayers and tourists. This mosque suffered for decades from rising groundwater contaminated with sewage. USAID, as part of its $770 million Cairo Sewerage Program, allocated $2.3 million for lowering the groundwater at the mosque area, replacing the old sewage collector, and providing a healthier environment for people living in the area.
..But Section 205.1(d) of title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations prohibits USAID funds from being used for the rehabilitation of structures to the extent that those structures are used for inherently religious activities. It is impossible to separate religion from a mosque; any such projects will necessarily support Islam.

The US sends money to Cairo to build a sewer system. Cairo uses the money it saves to build mosques. Money is fungible.

I am no longer surprised by anything this administration does. It’s easier that way.
Heard on the tv news this morning that we just sent Egypt more $$$$$. Really? As if Egypt is in need of money from anyone.
That would be crazy, with them holding Americans against their will and threaten a trial
