Not because leftists don't want it (they do), or because conservatives oppose it.
I've been hearing for awhile, that this is all an elaborate fundraising scam to milk money out of donors (mostly leftists).
Alot of muslims, or at least alot of folks in the muslim community here in new york, are chattering/gossiping that the money is going to go into the pockets of the group running this, who will turn around in the future, blame conservatives/christians/patriots, and say they "can't open", and will move on (with millions of dollars).
One muslim told me, that if this was a real venture to build a mosque, the saudis would have paid the whole thing in full, without hesitation. They know its a scam, because they know who the folks are running it.
Sonny, that sounds VERY plausible.
