Mysterious Group Buys Building Next to Ground Zero For Mosque Wednesday, December 16, 2009 Jim Hoft
A mysterous Muslim group with unknown sponsors has purchased a building steps away from Ground Zero. Hudson New York reported:
An identified group with unknown sponsors has purchased building steps away from where the WorldTrade Center once stood to turn it into potentially one of the largest New York City mosques.
At the moment the building, the old Burlington Coat Factory, already serves as a mini-mosque: an iron grill lifts every Friday afternoon for a little known Imam leading prayers a few yards away from where Osama Bin Ladens airborne Islamist bombers killed nearly 3000 people back in 2001.
The Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, told the New York Times which put the story on its front page Wednesday that he has assembled several million dollars to turn it into an Islamic center near the citys most hallowed piece of land that would stand as one of ground zeros more unexpected and striking neighbors.
The 61-year-old Imam said he paid $4.85 million for it in cash, records show. With 50,000 square feet of air rights and enough financing, he plans an ambitious project of $150 million, he said, akin to the Chautauqua Institution, the 92 Street Y or the Jewish Community Center.

Maybe we can build a cathedral in Mecca - yeah, right.
AMOBO and Assoc. bought it
Once built, it should get the same treatment the twin towers got.
Ok. So that triggered the 10K limit on cash transactions and it will not be secret much longer right? Oh, and someone should have zoned this kind of crap out of the area on 9/12. I say no way.
I vote for covering mecca in glass, right after we cover it in pig feces
They went out of their way to slap us in the face again. Who could have been so inhuman as to sell them that property? Nothing should surprise me now days.
If this is true, it is an in-your-face disgusting move by the Muzzies and once again shows why you can’t trust any of them because it is impossible to tell the good from the evil.
Probably part of the plan from the very beginning. If people want to look for real 9/11 conspiracy theories, they might want to start with this. Destroy the #1 symbol of American free markets and international trade, and replace it with the first shrine to Muslim hegemony.
can we all chip in and buy a pig-racing track next to the mosque?
How about a huge airlifted cargo of pig intestines dumped on it just as they break ground? Wouldn’t the land be “unclean” then?
Just glass is good enough.
They will probably have Obamass cut the ribbon at groundbreaking.
That sounds great! We'd have to have Pig stables as well and we could butcher the losing pigs and sell them fresh to supplement income. Too bad the drainage will have problems and leak over into the mosque property.
Pig head burial ground.... ??
This is through the Muslim Brotherhood aka Saudi Arabia.
My first question is: How does ANYONE buy ANY piece of property in Manhattan for 4.85 million dollars?
My stomach is lurching.
It would be a real shame if they could not get the permits for any construction work to be done there, r if the building was found unfit for the use stated. I would cry purple panther p!$$, over that.
"Imam Feisal said it was Christians who started mass attacks on civilians.
"The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians. But it was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresden and Hiroshima, neither of which were military targets."
"He said there was an endless supply of angry young Muslim rebels prepared to die for their cause and there was no sign of the attacks ending unless there was a fundamental change in the world.
"Imam Feisal said there could be little progress until the US acknowledged backing dictators and the US President gave an "America Culpa" speech to the Muslim world.
Bump to top again. This makes me furious. Unmitigated gall.
Kinda like the islamic muslim terrorist mosque on the Israel Holy Ground The Temple Mount.
Called the Dome of the Rock
I imagine the islamic muslims will want to call this one the Dome of the Towers.
Reading this, my mind went directly to BHO’s plan going directly over Ground Zero with no warning - and we were told for a photo op. We were never told who was in the plane nor who authorized it. Forgot the person’s name who ended up being the fall guy.
IF it were to ever open, you can bet that Ahmanutjob will come to speak to the UN, then want to pray in a mosque... THAT mosque. He’s tried to get to Ground Zero at least 3 times, and was not allowed.
Ugh. I’m going to effing scream!
This is outrageous. I just don’t have words.
Let’s make sure that the zoning laws are playing into OUR favor. Get on the NY City legislators, now!
Yes, isn't that the price of a small apartment there?
“This makes me furious. Unmitigated gall.”
Just think, when this amnesty gets pushed through they’ll be able to vote!! And there are PLENTY of illegal alien muslims roaming this nation and more coming in on visas and over the Mexican border by the day.
Muslims? Ground Zero? What could go wrong?
Where's that picture of the big butt kissing bow? Maybe then the Obama family will then have a house of worship since the Rev. Wright is off limits and The Usurper can recite what he claims is the most beautiful sound in the world. Poor Bo.
The address is 45 Park Place which is 2 blocks north of Ground Zero. It is used as a mosque every Friday. Sounds like a great spot for a FReep.
You bastards! You’ll never learn! The only thing you understand is brute force. Keep pushing us to find out what American anger is.
The Japanese, the Nazis and the fifth century terrorists already found out the results of poking a sleeping giant. Once he wakes up, nobody will be able save you.
If you think Abu Bama could, think again.
I’ll bet the big bucks right now that a mosque will be built in Thomson, Illinois within a year of the Gitmo Gang getting shipped up there.

“My first question is: How does ANYONE buy ANY piece of property in Manhattan for 4.85 million dollars?...”
BINGO!!!Governor Patterson and Mayor Bloomberg should hold hearings on this right out of the box....
I only wish you were right. We are being destroyed from within with the support of our own Quislings in Congress. To quote Pogo, “we have met the enemy and it is me” How else do we explain the American electorate that keeps electing the likes of Pelosi, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, John Kerry, Dick Durbin, Boxer, Feinstein, etc
Does that mean that it can be moved into the 'regular' news section now?
