The New York Post is reporting that Iran may help fund the mosque overlooking Ground Zero:
The developers of the Ground Zero mosque are refusing to flat out reject cash for the project from Holocaust-denying Iranian nuke nut Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
"I can't comment on that" was the reply of mosque spokesman Oz Sultan yesterday when asked specifically if the fund-raising would extend to Iran and Saudi Arabia. "We'll look at all available options within the United States to start."
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the leader of the project known as Park51, has said at meetings with downtown officials that he would raise money for the 13-story mosque from local Muslims, foundations and the sale of bonds. But in an interview with a London-based Arab newspaper earlier this year, he admitted his fund-raising would also extend to Muslim nations around the world.
The possibility of tapping the radical rogue Islamic state of Iran for funds comes as the United States is stepping up sanctions on the regime in retaliation for its support of terrorism and what is feared to be an illegal nuclear-weapons development program.
It would be just as horrific if the mosque developers tapped the moneybags in Saudi Arabia considering that 14 of the 19 9/11 terrorists hailed from The Kingdom.
I'm sure we will be informed by mosque proponents that money from Iran to fund the project is just one more indication that the people behind it want to promote "dialogue and understanding."
