Hmmm, if the Ground Zero mosque is not really at Ground Zero, as the controversial terrorist supporter Imam Rauf and the pro-Muslim American Pravda like to tell us, then why exactly are the developers for the GZ mosque seeking a $5 million federal grant from a fund designed to rebuild lower Manhattan after 9/11? Inquiring minds want to know.
They can't have it both ways. Correction, in this age of political correctness, they are, in fact, very likely to have it both ways.
Read from Gateway Pundit:
Ground Zero Mosque Asks For $5 Million Federal Grant to Help Fund Their Project
"So what are the odds that Team Obama honors this request?
Developers for the Ground Zero Mosque recently applied for a $5 million federal grant to help fund their project.
The Daily Beast reported:
'The so-called Ground Zero mosque recently applied for a $5 million federal grant from a fund designed to rebuild lower Manhattan after 9/11, reports The Daily Beast’s John Avlon.
Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located two blocks from Ground Zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11th, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.'
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) tweeted that it was outrageous to even consider funding this project with federal taxpayer dollars."
Is there no shame in Islam? Apparently not.
The American Pravda continues to suck up to Muslims, naming the GZ mosque developer a "person of the year".

Unreal: NBC Names Ground Zero Mosque Developer a “Person of the Year”…
"The MSM continues to fawn over this outrage at Ground Zero to show us common folk how 'progressive' they are…
Via Pundit Press:
'NBC and its affiliates have been trounced in ratings over the last several years. With stations like MSNBC under their belt and liberals such as Matt Lauer and Keith Olbermann hosting programs, NBC is clearly disconnected with the average American. Another clear sign of their mismanagement: naming Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the Ground Zero Mosque, one of their “People of the Year.”
In an interview set to air on Thanksgiving Day, Matt Lauer sat down with El-Gamal and discussed the “Park 51 Project.” El-Gamal, who was apparently pleased to be named one of NBC’s people of the year, seemed very comfortable answering questions. The excerpt released so far shows that Mr. Lauer gave El-Gamal a decidedly softball interview. Here is a partial transcript of El-Gamal’s opening statements:
“There’s going to be a facility here that’s going to provide aquatics, uh, uh, uh, a gym, just like a Jewish community center or, or a YMCA. It’s going to provide, uh, much needed facilities to the residents of Lower Manhattan.”
Lauer responds that there is “one major exception” to El-Gamal’s statement, describing the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, El-Gamal’s quickly responded:
“Not once have I held my faith accountable for the horrific events of 9/11. I am an American. I am an American who has a specific belief system, and my belief system, in order to be a Muslim you have to be a good Jew and a good Christian.”'
For all the whining we hear about Islamophobia, check out which religious group is the target of hate crimes. Here's a clue: It's not the Muslims.
