Ground Zero Mosque: The facts

First, the facts: The organization that will own and operate the “Islamic Cultural Center,” first known as Cordoba House, has not as yet been formed. Although it is claimed by many that both Christians and Jews serve on the board of directors, the reality is that the corporation, which is planned to be tax-exempt under IRS rule 501(c)3, does not yet exist. The man alleged to be the main planner, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, will be one of only 22 planned board members, according to developer Sharif el-Gamal who purchased the land (with an existing building that will be demolished) for Cordoba House with cash. Sharif el-Gamal, who is 37 years old and just a few years ago was waiting tables at a restaurant in New York City, refuses to reveal who furnished the cash to buy the construction site. He has been arrested numerous times on assault charges as well as soliciting for prostitution. El-Gamal is also delinquent on payment of hundreds of thousands of dollars of property tax on the building to be replaced by the Ground Zero mega-mosque.

One of the main financial backers of Sharif el-Gamal is Hisham Elzanaty who holds mortgages on other properties he is developing. Elzanaty owns several medical clinics in New York. The New York office of the Medicare inspector general has sent a summons to Elzanaty claiming that his clinics billed for unsubstantiated charges of $331,336. However, it is unknown if Elzanaty is the individual who has supplied the cash to buy the land at 51 Park. The money could have come from any individual or group anywhere in the world because Sharif el-Gamal refuses to provide any transparency at all. The funds to purchase the land could have come from the family of Osama bin Laden or perhaps the tooth fairy. There are news reports that the actual construction funds will be supplied by the the Ford Foundation and Saudi royalty. (Source: WND)
