“Sharif’s gone AWOL,” a frustrated source, who was once close with the developer, confided in Metro. “We don’t know what the f— he’s doing.”

I told you that Gamal was a grifter, a liar, a cheat. And NBC gave this lowlife Man of the Year. Mayor Doomberg had him to Gracie Mansion for dinner more than once.

Maybe that GZM pimping documentary film maker Daniel Reed can set up another live chat shill with Ann Barnard of the NY Times.

How stupid and incompetent does Reed look? That silly puff did a silly puff piece on Gamal and never mentioned any of the scams, defaults, bank loan lawsuits, non-payment taxes, rap sheet. And PBS ran that mealy mouthed mush.

Mosque developer spirals out of control? Emily Anne Epstein, Metro (hat tip Armaros)

When Metro repeatedly called Sharif El-Gamal for comment, he hung up.

Just days after it was revealed that Park51 mosque developer Sharif El-Gamal is in hot water regarding $1.7 million in unpaid rent, a source close to him says he’s gone off the deep end. Gamal geller photo

“Sharif’s gone AWOL,” a frustrated source, who was once close with the developer, confided in Metro. “We don’t know what the f— he’s doing.”

In addition to the Con Edison lawsuit regarding the $1.7 million rent dispute, El-Gamal and Soho Properties are facing at least five civil lawsuits.

It was also reported that El-Gamal fell behind on his property tax payments of $30,000 — and then allegedly presented a fraudulent receipt to the New York Daily News when they inquired about it.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, El-Gamal said he is envisioning hotels, condos, office space, or even an exclusive private club built on top of the mosque. It was a decision that shocked many people close to him — even those that first approved the community center to be built.

Community Board 1 chair Julie Menin said she’s been shut out by El-Gamal, and consequently, so has the community board that once heralded his vision for an Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan.

Suits pending

Active lawsuits against El-Gamal and his company, Soho Properties:
Stylebuilt Accessories, an East Rockaway novelty shop that specializes in custom gilded mirrors v. El-Gamal
Atlantic Business Products, Inc. (Atlantic Tomorrows Office) v. Soho Properties General Partner, LLC
Valley National Bank v. Soho Properties Inc.
Royal Crospin, Inc. v. Sharif El-Gamal
Slomin's Inc. v. Soho Properties Inc.
