Why is the U.S. funding the construction of mosques?

Newsweek columnist Fareed Zakaria says US funding mosque construction

But of course. Trouble is, most Western governments have been financing mosques and madrassas and covered it up. Australia has been funding Islamic indoctrination centers for a long time, but in the U.S. the constitution forbids it: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” so this is something that deserves a closer look.

Truth, even in the tightly controlled prison of the Obama media complex, occasionally bursts forth like a swordfish cavorting on the waves of a golden August afternoon.

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.

So, as an enraged and curious taxpaying citizen, I have a few questions for Mr. Zakaria, our Congress and this Administration. What are the locations, costs, and dates of construction of these US taxpayer-funded mosques and Islamic institutes? If some of these mosques were built in the America, didn’t anyone contact the ACLU? (I would pay real money to be in “the room” during that discussion.) What particular piece of Congressional legislation authorized US taxpayer dollars to be spent on these mosques and Islamic institutes? Did our government apportion these funds fairly and equally between the Shi’a, Sunni, and Sufi sects of Islam?

The Constitution states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” I’m damn sure spending US taxpayer dollars on constructing mosques was not envisioned by the Founding Fathers nor by the overwhelming majority of American citizens.

  1. Funding mosques is OK – Christmas trees, nativity scenes, menorahs, Ten Commandments, crosses & the like on public buildings & lands are verboten, not inclusive, and cause hurt feelings.

  2. Some one should point out to that Zakariah fella that Saudi Arabia has not allowed a SINGLE church to be built in its country, and that Christians in other muslim countries are being persecuted, jacked, killed and bullied. I do not want any more mosques in Europe or in England. They are funded by the Saudis and usually the madrassahs are run by ignorant and uneducated Deobandi clerics preaching hatred and death to all unbelievers – especially Christian and Jewish people. Time to wake up, world. Pull all the bloody mosques down and tell those ignorant butchers to go to one of their backwards countries and do their thing with their arses pointing to their pedophile profit. Democracy and islam are NOT compatible, and NEVER will be.

  3. GOTJ13,
    No more Mosques and certainly no more bloody Muslims. Any trouble makers who are ID’d to be deported to the nearest goat hole ASAP and firing squad for treasonous activities.
