New York – Ground Zero Mosque / 9-11 Mosque / Cordoba Mosque – Hitch – snag.

Why is it that a stupid technicality is the thing that is protecting the People who don’t want this Mosque, which is a monument like placing a Japanese temple on the site at Pearl Harbor.

To not condemn the evil that this is, then it’s like taking in the evil and calling it your own.

This religion is EX-clusive.  By accepting this religion is to ACCEPT it’s morals and values.  So, to accept the morality of IMMORALITY is to become immoral.

Islam is IMMORAL to ANY other Major world religion.

Adultery,  murder, polygamy, misogyny, child abuse, terrorism, etc……

Half-baked mosque:

Developer owns only part of site

Not so fast.

The developers of the controversial mosque proposed near Ground Zero own only half the site where they want to construct the $100 million building, The Post has learned.

One of the two buildings on Park Place is owned by Con Edison, even though Soho Properties told officials and the public that it owns the entire parcel. And any potential sale by Con Ed faces a review by the state Public Service Commission.

“We never heard anything about Con Ed whatsoever,” said a stunned Julie Menin, the chairwoman of Community Board 1, which passed a May resolution supporting the mosque

Daisy Khan, one of the mosque’s organizers, told The Post last week that both buildings on Park Place are needed to house the worship and cultural center. But she claimed ignorance about the Con Ed ownership of 49-51 Park Place and referred questions to Soho Properties, which bought the building at 45-47 Park Place in 2009.

Rep. Peter King, who opposes the mosque, said the developers seemed to be “operating under false pretenses.”

“I wonder what else they are hiding,” said King (R-LI). “If we can’t have the full truth on this, what can we believe?”

Sharif El-Gamal, the head of Soho Properties, first came forward in 2006 seeking to buy the empty building at 45-47 Park Place, said Melvin Pomerantz, whose family owned the property.

Pomerantz said El-Gamal eventually raised $4.8 million cash for 45-47 Park Place. El- Gamal paid an extra $700,000 to take over the lease with Con Ed for the building next door. The lease expires in 2071.

The two buildings were connected years ago — common walls were taken down — and housed a Burlington Coat Factory store.

Con Ed said El-Gamal told the utility in February that he wanted to exercise the purchase option in his $33,000- a-year lease for the former substation.

The utility is now doing an appraisal to determine the property value, and it would be up to El-Gamal to decide whether to accept the price, the utility said. The price is estimated at $10 million to $20 million.

“We are following our legal obligations under the lease. We will not allow other considerations to enter into this transaction,” Con Ed said.

The sale proposal will go to the Public Service Commission, where it could possibly face a vote by a five-member board controlled by Gov. Paterson.

El-Gamal told The Post his long-term lease was equivalent to ownership and that it even allowed him to demolish the building. Still, he said, he was determined to buy the property. “The cost is not an issue,” he said.

The building at 45-45 Park Place had been on the market for years with a sale price that at one point was $18 million. It was owned by Stephen Pomerantz, who died in 2006. His widow, Kukiko Mitani, said she was in debt and desperate to unload the property even at a bargain price of $4.8 million to El- Gamal.

She said she thought El-Gamal wanted to build condos, not a mosque — but he should build whatever he wants.

The Web site for the mosque and community-center project, now called Park 51, says it will be financed “with a mix of equity, financing and contributions.”

But just $200 in donations has come in so far, according to Ameena Meer, head of Muslims for Peace, the nonprofit accepting the contributions.

49-51 Park Place, owned by Con Edison, is being appraised for a possible sale to Soho Properties, the developer behind the controversial mosque. Sharif El-Gamal, the principal of Soho Properties, paid $700,000 to take over the 99-year lease in 2009.

Soho Properties spent $4.8 million to buy 45-47 Park Place in 2009. The building, which used to house a Burlington Coat Factory, had been on the market for years with a sale price that once reached $18 million.

    I have heard great intellectual arguments against the building of the WTC Mosque and I applaud them but yours is not that
    Have you been educated ? 1st Japan is a country, not a religion, 2nd there is no such thing as a Japanese temple. This alone says so much about your enlighten comments that follow.
    Does recalling the worst of what Christians have done, have any bearing on the Bible or Christianity. Since its clear your not speaking from a Christian perspective, lets try to speak in regard to the patriotic idoltry that many todays are engaged in. Does the ethinc cleansing of Native American, or the enslavement of Africans, reflect on you as an American today. Of course your bigotted and extremely ignorant and you only appeal to your like.

    Hal:
    you rant. you have no point. you are the intellectual superior to a …..? Never mind. I can’t think of anything.
    You have made no point other that to spew your dislike of me.
    Thats fine.
    I don’t really care

    Forgive me, my point is many Christians do wrong things that is not sanctioned by the Bible, even though they do it in the name of their religion, you living in Texas can attest to this, I gather. Often time not only is not sanctioned but it contrary to the bible.

    The same could be said about Islam as well but yet you use words like evil and other harsh words. Therefore, my question to you is based on the teaching of Islam, not the actions of corrupted men, what can you specifically point to as evil. Before, starting, I warn not to throw stones in a glass house. I wait for your response.

    Hal:
    I have gone to read the Q’ran. I got through about the first 12 pages. My stomach was turning. This is your HOLY book? It’s a manual for twist evil.
    It is EXclusive. The BOOK is VILE. The Hadith is probably worse. I don’t care to read it.
    The Bible is read and can have many interpretations. Islam is not inclusive. It is NOT simply a RELIGION. It is a complete doctrine. It is both a Government a Culture and a Religion. It has no TOLERANCE.
    Muhammad’s life is what is esteemed as perfection. All Muslim men should strive to live it like he did:
    pedophile, murderer, adulterer, and Conquerer
    These attributes are vile.
    Having more than one wife is vile.
    Living the way they require women to live is VILE
    Pretty much – IT’S EVIL

    Just as I thought, nothing specifically, not even one thing, just a huge generalization, with no substance, and no real thought.

    1st, Look in the bible and see how many wives Abraham or Solomon had.I reminded you of the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and they all claim Abraham.

    2nd research England in the 1800 to 1900 hundreds and you will see women were getting married at ages we would consider now way to young, so imagine the 7th century.

    3rd, read the Old Testament, and the tales of war and conquering and God ordering them to burn down the cities and smash babies on the rocks.

    4th, EXclusive, see the Neew Testament where Jesus referred to the non-Jew as a Dog.

    Remember glass houses !
