Confrontational Islamist Plan for 911 Mosque Mired in Chaos
by William Mayer and Beila Rabinowitz
According to a study done by the New York Post - published in its Sunday edition - an increasingly controversial plan to build a $100 million dollar, 13 story mosque just two blocks away from the epicenter of the Muslim terrorist attacks of September 11 is seriously short of funding and engulfed in questions regarding the motivation of its proponents.
The newspaper's story goes on to show that the organizations which are publicly leading the effort - the American Society for Muslim Advancement [ASMA] and the Cordoba Initiative - together have assets of less than $1 million.
"The American Society for Muslim Advancement, which proposed the center, has assets of less than $1 million...[and a] sister organization, the Cordoba Initiative, listed assets of less than $20,000 in 2008. Its tax filings do not disclose at least $60,000 in private contributions, a Post analysis found, raising questions about where the money went."
