Ground Zero Mosque Uses Eve of 9/11 Anniversary to Fundraise

Should the developers of the Ground Zero Mosque use the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to fundraise for their Islamic mosque, set to be constructed on the site where wreckage from one of the planes used in that terrorist attack landed?

That is exactly what the developers of the Ground Zero Mosque are doing. A little over a month before the anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks of 9/11, Sharif El-Gamal, the developer of the Ground Zero Mosque, launched a $7 million fundraising campaign to culminate on September 10, 2011. That’s right, the same Islamic mosque, whose leading donor is being sued for a $5 million insurance scam, is using the day before America is set to commemorate the solemn 10th anniversary of 9/11 as their fundraising deadline.

Just when you think the Ground Zero Mosque developers couldn’t get any more insensitive to the thousands of families who lost loved ones on that horrific day a decade ago, they go a pull a stunt like this – it’s just sickening!

I was on Fox News over the weekend debating Zead Ramadan, a spokesman for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) – a group that was named an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a terrorist funding case. Notice, in the video above, that he was asked a very simple question: “Is it a coincidence? Is it something that maybe could have been finessed differently” than to use the day before September 11th as a fundraising deadline – and he repeatedly refused to answer the question.

Regardless of whether you support the Ground Zero Mosque or not, should the developers use the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to raise money for such a controversial project? You decide, and post your comments on the Jordan Sekulow Show Facebook page.
