    Islamic Center Backers Won't Rule Out Taking Funds from Saudi Arabia, Iran

    The developers behind the Islamic center planned for a site near Ground Zero won't rule out accepting financing from the Mideast -- including from Saudi Arabia and Iran -- as they begin searching for $100 million needed to build the project.

    The religious organization and the development company behind the center declined to say how much of the $100 million needed to build the facility has already been raised.

    "We are in the planning stages," said Oz Sultan, spokesman for the center now called Park51. "We have just started the process of fund raising planning."


    What a shocker this guy won't rule out taking money from the terrorist state of Iran.

    And he just started the process of fund raising right when he goes on tour of the middle east at our expense. Nice.

    So Ron Paul was wrong to take money from White Supremacists?

    And I think it's funny how Iranian money would be fueling American jobs.

    If you take someone's money and then totally work against their vision, you win. There's a sucker born every minute. The Cordoba Initiative is pretty much antithetical to the version of Islam in Saudi Arabia. So if they manage to wring the Kingdom and its religious groups of out cash, that's hilarious.

    That is sufficient evidence to close the project down. We CANNOT allow terrorist nations to be funding construction projects. Now I am completely against this mosque.

    Would it be legal for the Ground Zero mosque developers to take money from Iran?

    That is actual a good question. I know it is illegal to give money to an organization that is considered a terrorist organization, but I have no idea if the reverse is true.

    Seems to me, that since the money is dirty, the government would have legal justification to seize those funds. Surely it's illegal for a group to accept money from a foreign drug cartel and this would be no different. Just like it wouldn't fly for a second, if Iran attempted to purchase real estate in the United States.

    Let's just assume that it is legal, one thing is for sure: alotta Democrat politicos would come off looking like total dickheads, for going to bat for this guy... Obama's state department, along with Hillary, would look like even bigger dickheads for paying this clown, to go to the ME on a fundraising tour.

    Funny though how the U.S. has armed SA and Iran though..Now we are worried that those weapons we sold them will be used against us.

    EDIT

    Just think it's funny how we sell them weapons but then are concerned about them funding mosques.
