A Muslim businessman who unsuccessfully attempted to build a mosque at Ground Zero in New York is at it again, and his plans should have every American outraged.
Sharif El-Gamal thought a mosque at Ground Zero would be a good idea, but his idea was shot down after years of legal battles. He finally gave up on an idea of a mosque but it appeared he didn’t give up on a Muslim building of some sort.
Now he has plans to erect a luxury condominium tower and Islamic cultural museum at the same location he wanted the mosque.
El-Gamal said on Wednesday that he had finalized “Shariah-compliant financing” for the buildings, according to the New York Post.
The project, estimated at $174 million, would feature a three-story Islamic cultural museum at 51 Park Place. It was no accident that this was the exact address he wanted to put his mosque.
At 45 Park Place in the Financial District, El-Gamal also hoped to build 48 high-end residential condominiums in a 43-story tower.
The condominium project would also include two penthouses on the top four floors, a swimming pool, gym, 2,821-square-foot public plaza, retail shop and a kids’ play area.
The deal was designed by Michel Abboud of SOMA Architects with the help of Ismael Leyva Architects and was funded by the London branch of Malayan Banking Berhad.
Let’s take a moment to stop and think about just what an Islamic museum would include. El-Gamal wants to honor Islam with Islam artifacts and an Islamic flag at the very spot hundreds of innocent Americans died at the hands of radical Islamic terrorists.
He knows he is spitting on the graves of 9/11 victims and he apparently won’t be happy until he gets some sort of Islamic building erected in this area. He’s hoping people will forget about him and his mosque — but we need to show him we won’t forget.
