Please read my oped today in the American Thinker.
Look what's crawling
out from under the Rauf. Without his Albright résumé and subdued dhimmedia running interference, it is plain as
day that this hustler, the renowned "moderate" Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the
Park 51 Ground Zero mega-mosque initiative, is a lowlife. He has been exposed as
a rat and vermin slumlord whose tenants live without
basic services like hot water. He scammed New Jersey politicians and got taxpayer dollars
for rehabilitation of his infested, dilapidated buildings in Union City and
Palisades Park, but still his victimized tenants live in squalor. So where's the
money?The New Jersey Record reported that
Rauf was sued for mortgage fraud in 2008 and settled the suit in June of that
year. The suit reveals that Rauf owns two apartment buildings, one of which has
been vacant since a fire broke out there — a year after Rauf ignored citations
for twelve different fire code violations.That's not all. It has also recently come to light that Rauf and
his wife, Daisy "the Con" Khan, listed their apartment as a mosque in order
to conduct what amounts to tax fraud. Rauf was able to obtain tax-exempt status for his
Muslim organization by deceiving the Internal Revenue Service: he told them that
five hundred Muslims met regularly for worship at a "mosque" that was actually a
tiny one-bedroom apartment (also listed as Daisy's residence). Rauf sought
"church status" — an official IRS term for a house of worship of any religion
(though stealth Rauf, I am sure, is working the feds to change that term) — for
his organization, the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), and the
clueless feds granted the request.Gaining "church status" means much more than just that your
organization doesn't have to pay taxes. It also means that you have very little
accountability about how you spend your money.Is New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg still kissing the backside
of this "bridge-builder"?And that's not all that's unsavory about the money that's
pouring into the building of the mega-mosque and the people connected with this
scheme. Rauf's thug developer in the project to build an Islamic
supremacist mega-mosque on Ground Zero, Sharif El-Gamal, has a rap sheet a mile
long. He recently wrote that "when you beat up someone physically you get
exercise & stress relief," and it seems clear that he spoke from experience. And his financier, Hisham
Elzanaty, was a large funder of Hamas (exposed in the Holy
Land Foundation jihad terror funding trial) while defrauding Medicare out of
hundreds of thousands of dollars.Tell me again: where is this thug getting 125 million dollars?
El-Gamal is now being evicted for non-payment of rent for his SoHo office.
