Who is Ground Zero mosque developer Sharif El-Gamal?

UPDATE: From the Investor’s Business Daily article, “Mosque’s Saudi Patron” – surprise, surprise!

Islamofascism: New dots are emerging from the probe into who’s behind the Ground Zero mosque, and the radical Muslim Brotherhood is coming into view.

Naturally, the Saudi patron is billionaire and Forbe’s 19th richest person in the world, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who owns 7% of FOXNews. I wonder what he thinks about this story…

From waiter to millionaire mogul in record speed…

In July 2009, Sharif El-Gamal and his brother Sammy bought the Burlington Coat Factory for $4.8 million in cash, prompting PI Bill Warner to ask:

How can Sammy and Sharif El-Gamal buy million dollar properties for cash in Manhattan but can’t pay back a few thousand dollars on apartment deposits to clients that were supposed to be in escrow ?  Sammy and Sharif El-Gamal of SOHO Properties have been throwing around $$$ Millions of dollars in cash buying apartments for themselves and expensive Manhattan Commercial buildings. …where did the $4.8 million in cash come from to buy 45 Park Place?

El-Gamal’s guarantor on a $39 million mortgage, Hisham Elzanaty, is evidently the same person listed as having contributed $1,000 to Obama’s campaign, as well as numerous other donations to other politicians, including recently to Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a mosque supporter.

Concerning the Egyptian-born Elzanaty, FOXNews relates:

But el-Gamal’s biggest boost came from Egyptian-born Hisham Elzanaty.

We tried to ask Elzanaty some questions, but he said he didn’t have the time.

Mortgage documents confirm Elzanaty is the guarantor on the $39 million loan el-Gamal’s company assumed in buying the building.

It seems el-Gamal’s money man couldn’t get away from us fast enough either. He darted out of a nearly $2 million Roslyn Heights home and made a bee-line to his car, again refusing to answer our questions. We asked him how he knows Sharif el-Gamal.

But we’ve been able to find out a bit about Elzanaty without his help. He is the owner of several medical companies run out of a building in the Bronx. East Tremont medical center is a clinic. In the reception area, there is a picture of Elzanaty proudly posing with his staff.

But as state records show, Hisham Elzanaty was ordered to repay more than $331,000. An audit showed that one of his companies was overpaid by Medicaid.

We tried again to talk to Elzanaty, but once again he took off without answering any of our questions.

Much the way his associate, mosque developer Sharif el-Gamal, did.

El-Gamal remains stubbornly silent. And we’ve now learned he’s also involved in developing another Islamic center in Harlem….

Elzanaty’s parents were killed in the 1999 crash off Natucket Island of EgyptAir flight 990, in which some 33 “top Egyptian military officers” also perished. The crashed plane was flown by an alleged Muslim Brotherhood member who shouted, “Tawakkalt Ala Allah!,” meaning, “I rely on Allah!” Perhaps Elzanaty views his parents as shahids or martyrs in a holy cause?

Muslim Brotherhood connection?

Where is all the money for these buildings and the Ground Zero mosque coming from? Is there a Muslim Brotherhood connection here, as there allegedly is with the imam of this proposed project, Feisal Rauf, although Rauf denies his involvement with the Ikhwan (Brotherhood)? The organization 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America asks the same question:

Is the Muslim Brotherhood behind the planned mosques at Ground Zero, Sheepshead Bay, and Staten Island?

Why be concerned about the Muslim Brotherhood? According to a document purportedly seized by the FBI, the MB has as one of its tenets the destruction of the West’s “miserable house” from within:

An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America

…The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions….

Note the prominent position in the Muslim Brotherhood of Jamal Barzinji, who allegedly is a partner in the Cordoba Initiative, the organization behind Rauf and the Ground Zero mosque. On its website, Barzinji’s organization the International Institute of Islamic Thought lauds Imam Rauf’s Sharia Index Project, of which critics claim the Ground Zero mosque is clearly an outreach, based on remarks in Rauf’s book, titled in Malaysia, A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of America Post-9/11. Moreover, Northeast Intelligence Network reports that Rauf’s wife, Daisy Khan, is the niece of Faroque A. Khan, “a trustee at the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).”

This contention of a Muslim Brotherhood connection to the Cordoba Initiative and the Ground Zero mosque is given further weight with the statements of a former FBI special agent, who states that every major Islamic organization in the U.S. is MB-controlled:

A former FBI special agent told law enforcement and Homeland Security personnel that a network of Islamic organizations are working to incrementally implement Islamic law in the United States.

Every major Muslim organization is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, the former FBI agent said, which he said was formed to overthrow America and establish Islamic law.

“They’re having great success of implementing Shariah law, I could give you a thousand examples,” Guandolo said.

He said small concessions like installing foot baths, and colleges forced to have separate swimming times for Islamic men and women so not to offend Muslims, are other parts of the strategy.

But Guandolo said that federal leadership is reluctant to act against these Islamic organizations due to political correctness and the threats of lawsuits.

He said that Muslim groups will demand concessions on matters by saying, “You have to do this; you have to do this or I will be offended.”…

    No for retards center in NY
    The bottom line, a clear two third majority of Americans are objecting to the Mosque and the majority right should be respected. Islam is not a native religion to America and Moslems are not only relative new comers to the States as Immigrants, but they are few in numbers and have no right yet acquired to impose their will so arrogantly on the majority. America has accommodated Moslems despite their excruciating retardation and unpleasant attires, rude customs and lack of scientific and cultural contribution to America. There are more Mosques in America than Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan combined. Syria, thanks (or no thanks really) to Hafez Assad has the world largest numbers of Mosques in one country and the only contribution they made to Syria is retardation of the populace and the covering of women. Why not built the Mosque complex somewhere else, where people wanted such center built in their county so they can benefit from it. As Syrians, we are very offended when we see in malls of America a covered woman, it is rather very offensive to us, one can imagine how Americans feels. Immigrants from the Middle East comes to live and work in America because they wanted this American life style, likewise a devoted Moslem should go and live in that dump called Arabia where he can enjoy a pure Islamic lifestyle, why live among the heathen and hope to convert them. Please tell Mordakhai Bin Ibrahim Bin Moshe Al Walleed Bin Talal to take his Mosque and Korans and find other place than America, less holly, to shove it in. Moslems of America are not impressed, nor deceived, by those pretending to be Moslem piety while profiting from the dead soul of millions of Moslems in Iraq and elsewhere, partnering in business, ventures, and investments with those most venomous to Islam and Moslems. No for the Mosque and we support the American majority in their opinion and respect their feeling and cultural interests.

  2. A Christian center in Madina perhaps
    There is no problem in building a Mosque and cultural center, sort of a (Y) complex, as Cordoba Institute is billing it, near the site where 19 Saudi Moslem terrorists slammed hijacked planes and atrociously murdered perhaps as many as 6000 innocent, hard working Americans who loved life and loved others. But considering the fact that a clear two third majority of Americans (include Moslems) in adamant objection to this Peace project, which it’s builders and developers, headed by Walid Bin Talal maintains the same nationality of the Saudi Terrorists that carried out the 911 attack on America. It would be appropriate to negotiate thru cultural and diplomatic means an exchange of complexes that signify true tolerance and peace. That is Americans will welcome the Mosque complex building near the Saudi Terrorists devastated WTC site, in exchange for Saudi ruling family welcoming the construction of a Church and Christian complex, as well as a Synagogue and Jewish studies complex, in Madina and in proximity to the Kaabba. Preferably, and significantly, at the same distance the Mosque in New York will be erected away from WTC site. This will truly be a genuine symbol of a “Peace Deal” and a fair one. Otherwise, should the Saudi regime refuse the exchange, you will know that the Mosque in New York is nothing more than a Moslem occupation site and a forceful rude intrusion on American culture and dignity. Saudi Moslem terrorists murdered thousands on 911 at jet speed. The Saudi Moslem terrorists new plan is to murder millions of American at slow trickle speed thru grads of WTC Mosque.

    Before they build, they must reciprocate in kind, moving the Mosque from above the wailing wall platform, let the Jews build their Temple will go a long way to prove their sincerity about a “peace gift”.

  3. who is El-Gamal?
    :dry: Walks, talks and smells like a duck, it must be a duck.
    This is a ‘wake up’ test!

    Great Comment
    Jim Evans left this comment on the Conservative website, one of hundred site we monitor, I thought it should be braough in here so readers can really understand what is going on. You see, whenever you have a body called BROTHERHOOD, you know it came out and belong to the Brotherhood of Amen in Egypt. It dont matter if it is called Cussaders Brotherhood of Malta or Moslem Brotherhood, all lead to one man and to one final goal, One World Ruler, One world Government. It si all all part of teh Egyptian/Babylonian Mystery sects that Amen/Marduk set up more than 2000 years ago to subvert humanity, thier ligitmate rule and to bring all teh wealth of teh earth and political, military power under his rule, the nest step, is enslaving humanity into military production lines to assmble what he need to wage war on NIBIRU ( the war in heaven) to claim his seat in heaven as ruler, which he claims to be stolen and wrongly given to Enlil and his kids. Now go search all that said here. YOU NEED TO BE INFORMED and FAST. The plan is going to move fast steps between 2012-2015.

    Jim Evans said…

    ……..And, worse, you are being used & manipulated (playing into their hands) by a faction that has the same goals as the people you claim to despise: The Neocons.

    The Neocons are a faction or have similar goals as the elite/Globalists.

    The elite/Globalists share the same Neocon mentality: “Invite the world, invade the world (so we can more easily control the world)”.

    And, it is the elite/Globalists, who are behind Imam Rauf and are at least partially financing the proposed Ground Zero mosque.


    “It was previously reported that the ‘Ground Zero Mosque,’ officially known as the Cordoba House, is the vision of “Imam” Faisal Abdul Rauf, a member of the Council on Foreign Relation’s Religious Advisory Committee.”

    It has also been revealed that Imam Rauf is a globalist stooge/minion, who receives financial support from various Globalist foundations:

    “It was also reported that the dual organizations Rauf is using to promote and fund his activities are the Cordoba Initiative and the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA). ASMA had listed several large globalist foundations as its supporters including the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Rockefeller Brothers, Rockefeller Philanthropy, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.”


    (Supporting documentation/authority links are within the above linked post.)

    These Globalists want to promote division within America, so America can’t stand against the Globalist visions (America needs to be united as much as possible to reject the Globalist vision of a U.S. deprived of sovereignty/independence), which one vision is “invite the world, invade the world”.

    Promotion of Shiria Law, which Rauf is engaged in is a way to divide America. Shiria Law has no place in America (because it is a combination of religion & government, government enforcing religous edicts, in a specific framework set out by Islamic scholars & religious leaders, Imams, by reference to specific passages of the Koran).

  5. Islam
    Islam is a cult of death. It has to be the most @ssbackwards cult in the world.

    What have Islam created other than death and suffering? :whistle:
