What? Your Tax Money Is Going to Build Mosques?

No separation of mosque and state? From Lee DeCovnick American Thinker:

Newsweek, the Washington Post's former progressive stepchild, published an op-ed by Fareed Zakaria, the in-house lapdog for the Administration, extolling the virtues of building the Ground Zero Mosque. A couple of sentences demand a great deal more explanation.

To that end, early in its tenure the Bush administration began a serious effort to seek out and support moderate Islam. Since then, Washington has funded mosques, schools, institutes, and community centers that are trying to modernize Islam around the world.

We should be encouraging groups like the one behind this project, not demonizing them. Were this mosque being built in a foreign city, chances are that the U.S. government would be funding it.

Perhaps we all missed the memo where US taxpayers are gleefully funding Islamic "mosques, schools, institutes, and community centers" around the globe. Of course, US troops have restored hundreds of schools and community centers in Iraq and Afghanistan, but mosques and Islamic institutes? This seems very difficult to believe.

Thanks to The Right Scoop for the heads-up.



  1. Well, the hypocrasy of supporting Muslim mosques but not anything with the word "Christian" in it, would make sense, I guess.

  2. I liked what Instapundit posted here: It's examples of other bridge-building centers that could be built around the globe. Like the The Jewish Holocaust Museum of Gaza. haha
