<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">the State Department is creating the appearance that the U.S. government is facilitating the construction of this shameful structure. It gives Mr. Rauf not only access but imprimatur to gather up foreign cash. And because Mr. Rauf has refused to reveal how he plans to finance his costly venture, the American public is left with the impression it will be a wholly foreign enterprise. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>This contradicts the argument that a mosque is needed in that part of New York City to provide services for a burgeoning Muslim population. If so many people need the mosque so badly, presumably they could figure out a way to pay for it themselves.</span>

Americans also may be surprised to learn that the United States has been an active participant in mosque construction projects overseas. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>In April, U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania Alfonso E. Lenhardt helped cut the ribbon at the 12th-century Kizimkazi Mosque, which was refurbished with assistance from the United States</span> ... The U.S. government also <span style='font-size: 17pt'>helped save the Amr Ebn El Aas Mosque in Cairo, which dates back to 642. The mosque's namesake was the Muslim conqueror of Christian Egypt, who built the structure on the site where he had pitched his tent before doing battle with the country's Byzantine rulers. For those who think the Ground Zero Mosque is an example of "Muslim triumphalism" glorifying conquest, the Amr Ebn El Aas Mosque is an example of such a monument - and one paid for with U.S. taxpayer funds.</span>

The mosques being rebuilt by the United States are used for religious worship, which raises important First Amendment questions. U.S. taxpayer money should not be used to preserve and promote Islam, even abroad....

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>For example, our government rebuilt the Al Shuhada Mosque in Fallujah, Iraq</span> ... But Section 205.1(d) of title 22 of the <span style='font-size: 17pt'>Code of Federal Regulations prohibits USAID funds from being used for the rehabilitation of structures to the extent that those structures are used for "inherently religious activities." It is impossible to separate religion from a mosque; any such projects will necessarily support Islam.</span> ...</div></div>

Imam Hussein Obama al Barack al Parts Unkown has had his pro Islam agenda exposed. Again. (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/aug/10/tax-dollars-to-build-mosques/print/)

Thank God no Christian ideas were given any legal standing at all:

You know when a church in this country needs to grow or expand, they rely on their members to pay for it. Nearly every church I have ever attended, at one time or another, had a "building fund" project.

What a unique concept!

That wasn't my actual point.

My point is that the far left has wailed and gnashed their collectivist teeth for decades about how a privately funded manger scene that was allowed to rest on public land ... or the Ten Commandments appearing in a courthouse ... or a public employee wearing a cross pin ... or a public employee uttering such profanity as "MERRY CHRISTMAS" ... or students taking a moment of silence ...will all somehow cause the establishment of a theocracy that forces women to have babies they don't want and force all to worship the baby Jesus or die.

Yet, at the same time the same people are willingly grabbing their collectivist ankles as tax dollars go towards supporting the one major religion that actually demands that the world convert or die ... and they amazingly bow down and accept their dhimmi status without so much as a whimper.
