Speaker Pelosi: Investigate this!

Ground Zero Mosque Developers won’t rule out taking funds from Saudi Arabia, Iran

John Schulenburg

Not any shocking news here, considering the Imam behind the project is about as sheepish looking a wolf can come here in America.  His radical views are well documented.  See my previous post on him if you missed it.

ABC News reported:

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.

[…]Sultan said it would take three to six months to establish a plan on how to raise the needed capital. He said any fund raising campaign would begin domestically, but he would not comment on whether it would extend overseas or to foreign governments.

“We’ll look at all available options within the United States to start. We’re hoping to fund this predominately from domestic donors. That can be everything from institutions all the way down to personal [contributors,]” said Sultan.

When asked if they would then turn to foreign donors, Sultan replied, “I can’t comment on that.”

Pressed on whether the developers were willing rule out accepting donations from the governments of Saudi Arabia or Iran, he repeated, “I can’t comment on that.”

Update: Da TechGuy has this, “…An Arab language newspaper has come out against the Mosque at Ground Zero…” in his entry Two good developments.
