The jihadist-linked developers of the Park51 (Ground Zero Victory Mosque) Islamic center had the cojones to ask for federal post-9/11 recovery money to get their project off the ground. Fortunately, they failed.
DNA Park51’s request for funding sparked controversy among those who did not want to see an Islamic center so close to the site of the 9/11 attacks. It appears that Park51 did not meet the eligibility requirements because the organization has not yet received its nonprofit certification.(That’s the only reason? Disgraceful)
Park51 recently applied for a $5 million grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corp., which has distributed over $2 billion in federal funds since 9/11. The grant would have partly gone toward Islamic programs at the planned $100 million mosque and community center two blocks north of the World Trade Center site, including domestic violence prevention, Arabic and other foreign language classes.
The Park51 center “is desperately needed in Lower Manhattan,” said the developers. “This is why (Muslim) community leaders and the Muslim asskissing mayor of NYC universally support this project.”(The only reason it is needed is to gloat over the successful attack on NYC and plan for the next one)
