Muslim-sympathizer and traitor Michael Bloomberg’s top deputies went to great lengths to help the law-breaking, nefarious Muslim developers of a nationally protested planned triumphal mosque at Ground Zero – even drafting a letter to the community board for them.
Peter King, start your investigations into the Muslim community with Bloomberg.
NY DAILY NEWS–A flurry of emails released by City Hall yesterday revealed the coaching Bloomberg’s brass gave to the imam pushing to build the mosque, Feisal Abdul Rauf. At one point, Community Affairs Commissioner Nazli Parvizi even drafted a letter for Rauf’s wife, Daisy Khan, to send to Community Board 1, which was voting on the project.
“As a Muslim-American and a New Yorker, I take my role in keeping New York the greatest City in the world serious,” the draft said. Parvizi also provided the contact information for the board.
Another email shows that Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Fatima Shama expedited a temporary public assembly permit for the group to conduct prayers in January at the site, known as 51 Park.
City Hall says it is the job of the community and immigrant affairs commissioners to assist community groups, including drafting letters for them. Officials noted Bloomberg has always been in favor of building the mosque near Ground Zero.
“The Community Affairs Unit exists to help groups navigate city government, and from helping prepare for a Papal visit to expediting approval of a Sukkah in a midtown Mahnattan park, this kind of assistance is typical of its regular work,” said Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser.
But one critic of the mosque charged that the emails prove that backers rigged the public approval process. “They were in cahoots all along,” steamed Andy Sullivan, a Queens construction worker and vocal mosque critic.
