Posted on 11/22/2010 10:59:33 AM PST by VU4G10
The developers behind the proposed Ground Zero mosque have applied for about $5 million in federal grant money set aside for redeveloping downtown Manhattan after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a new report.
The application was submitted as a "community and cultural enhancement" grant, which is a program run by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corp.
Developer Sharif El-Gamal discussed the grant proposal in recent closed-door meetings, according to The Daily Beast.
The revelation that the developers have asked for this grant could reignite outrage about the mosque's proposed location.

Great! So we get to pay for their VICTORY mosque!
Is this a great country or what!
Of course if St. Nicholas’ Church applied for the same money it would be rejected on “church-state-separation” grounds. Apparently it is OK to combine mosque and state.
0bammy will see to it personally!
It’s not even a loan!
Looks to me like New Yorkers are, by and large, a self-loathing, self destructive lot. If they had any balls, they would be 1 million deep at the WTC site, demanding the “Victory Mosque” be scrapped.
Even I, the world’s great cynic since the age of 14, could not have anticipated THIS outrage! Interestingly, the mere
proposal or application for a ‘grant’ is premised on the idea that they are already legitimized as a group on equal footing with just about everyone else who can apply for grants, like non-profits, etc.
I must commend them on their shrewdness-—at least on the face of it, they are playing their cards from angles that are bound to appeal to their enablers. From everyone else’s perspective though, this looks like a new and unprecedented form of overreaching.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejads trip to New York City reportedly expanded beyond meeting with foreign dignitaries at the United Nations. According to the New York Post, the Iranian presidents six-night stay also included a secret sit-down with militant Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan and members of the New Black Panther Party:
The president shared a hush-hush meal with Farrakhan and members of the New Black Panther Party Tuesday at the Warwick Hotel on West 54th Street.
The meeting of the podium smackers took place in a banquet room, where the fiery leaders presumably exchanged theories on whats wrong with the world.
Chutzpah is killing your parents and then asking the jury for sympathy because you’re orphans, or flying planes into buildings and then asking for money to open a center that teaches that it’s OK to kill Christians and Jews a short distance from the empty hole that was the buildings that you flew the bleeding planes into.
Exactly and blowhards like Joy and Whoopi are seemingly blind to this Obama double standard. Didn’t Obama just revise (cut funding of) Bushes faith based initistives?
Talk about adding salt to the wound. Holy cow!!!
Thank the sorry bastards that voted for the sob.
I am beginning to think that just living in NY City requires one to have one’s brain removed.
Maybe the friends & family of the dead NYPD/NYFD will et it get 90% built, and blow it to smithereens ;-)
I have read that article twice now. I have always assumed when they use the words “the president’ they are referring to
But the article goes on and refers to the ‘SECRET SERVICE’. Does Ahmadinejad have secret service?
No way Obama could have been there, right? It would not shock me but...
The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.
OK. Up until now the only argument they had going for them was that it was a private business transaction, and we the people really didn’t have anything to say about it.
But now that they are asking for MY MONEY, I think I do have a say. And so now I say - HELL NO.
No way you are getting me to let you take my tax dollars to pay for your religion.
They are taking IMO a page from the Leftist/Marxist playbook as we are already paying for our ultimate destruction via our taxes for the many Leftist programs that have been legislated to the Federal Government as it is.
All those accumulated Leftist Social programs administered by Leftist created, and staffed Bureaucracies providing Leftist oriented NGO’s, University grants, and so forth at the expense of American taxpayers, and now the Muzzie’s want their fair share of our complacency.
The revolution must be with an eye to reverting The Fed to the Constitution, and the Left to an institution.
And now we are going to pay for this B/S too!
I hang on the hope that some talented nut case will come out for his 15 minutes of fame.
Agreed. But stand by for Joy, Whoopie,Olbie,Maddow to say it is not a mosque it is a COMMUNITY CENTER that all can go to and heal... mean while they use the 66th floor to plan the next attack on us.
NYers should have run Bloomberg out of town. They are self-loathing fools!
Watch for 0bama to fast-track this one.
Give it to them.. in lead!
could? COULD??? COULD!!!
Interesting, though, that their going after the 9/11 redevelopment money helps to prove that it is in a sensitive area. And using Federal money to establish a church? That should cause some "separation anxiety," shouldn't it?
Bloomberg wants to run for POTUS.
Imagine Trump Vs. Bloomberg.
And bureaucrats wonder why militias start????
Once upon a time there was an Arab who wanted to cross a wide desert. So he fed and watered his camel well, and got all necessary supplies, and started out. The very first afternoon, a sandstorm began to blow. The Arab got off his Camel and pitched his tent and climbed in, to wait out the storm.
After a while, the Camel said, "Master, pray let me put my nose under your tent, for the sand is blowing in my nose. If I suffocate, I cannot carry you across the desert." So the Arab let the camel put his nose under the tent.
Shortly thereafter, the Camel said, "Pray, Master, let me put my eyes under your tent, because the sand is blowing in my eyes, and if I go blind, I cannot carry you across the desert." So the Arab let the Camel put his eyes under the tent.
THEN after a suitable delay, the Camel asked, "Pray, let me put my ears under your tent, as the sand is blowing in my ears."
This was shortly followed by, "The sand is blowing on the cut on my shoulder, Pray let me put my Shoulder under your tent." So the Arab let the Camel put his shoulder under the tent. And shortly thereafter the Camel pushed the Arab out of his own tent.
The day that a Jew is appointed to that BoD is the day Rauf gets a fatwah on his head.
Prepare to have $5M of your taxpayer dollars confiscated and given to the Islamists to build a victory mosque at ground zero.
they can take this and the”Muslim Fraud” in the whitehouse and go right straight to hell.
A Federal grant for a spit in your face mosque? Nuke the corrupt bastards to hell!!
Now I would pay the price of admission to watch that happen!
“Rauf told “60 Minutes” in September that to reduce fears that terror organizations would contribute to the project, he’ll ask US officials to approve the sources of funding.”
Yet another threat from these clowns. I guess if they don’t get their hands on our tax dollars..then they will ask terrorists for money? Unfreakinbelievable.
Meanwhile Obama is abandoning our border, strip searching American citizens at airports and allowing Muslims to ‘pat themselves down’.
I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!!
And there is no time left to waste. When all the new illegals (since Reagan Amnesty) become eligible to vote, it will be way too late to revive our Constitutional Republic.
They re-elected Michael Bloomberg.
OMG .. beyond reprehensible and repugnant!
Barack Hussein Obama = President of America, by, with and for terrorists!

One more piece of evidence.
America will again take the trash to the dump...
There will be hell to pay if federal money is used to build that mosque (if it is ever built). Even obama can’t be that stupid.
How much more in your face can they get?
Mitt Romney deserves credit. Click below.
Romney is tied in through every aspect
of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque.
Was it an order from his JET Blue partner, Soros?
or something else?
How much of the money for these attacks against the GOP
by Team Romney were funded by money which Romney
got from the Victory Mosque at Ground Zero through Bain?
"(The GroundZero Mosque) cleared its final hurdle
developers plan to build the $100 million center which will include a mosque.
Since its incipient stages in July 2009, when a Muslim-run real-estate development
company purchased the damaged, vacant building and land where the new center
will be built, the project has sparked controversy and debate.
.... the tattered building that was bought by the Muslim real estate company had
been owned by a subsidiary of Bain Capital, a company Romney founded in 1984.
So it's OK if his company can profit off the sale of the land ."
