Ground Zero Imam Embezzled $3 Million from Ground Zero Mosque


“This is how much of your money I stole.”

That’s Ground Zero Mosque Imam 1.0, Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, slumlord and bringer of peace to all mankind. There have been others since and everyone from the owner of the Ground Zero Mosque to the Imam are entangled in more criminality than you can shake a Koran at.

Shaken, no doubt, by the Islamophobia of New Yorkers who didn’t want to see a megamosque near the place where Muslims murdered 3,000 people, Imam Rauf and his charming wife Daisy sought comfort in a massive spending spree using money donated to build the megamosque.

Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, founder and CEO of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, is being accused of swiping donation money intended for the “Ground Zero” mosque to enjoy a lavish lifestyle.

The former imam of the controversial “Ground Zero” mosque used millions of dollars in donations to fund a high-flying lifestyle, a bombshell lawsuit charges.

The court papers, filed Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court, say Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf pocketed $3 million from the Malaysian government and another $167,000 from private donors.

The money — intended to fund The Shariah Index Project — was used by Rauf and his wife Daisy to buy real estate, lavish trips and vacations, entertainment and a luxury sports car, the suit charged.

The lawsuit additionally charged Rauf of hiding his scheme to use non-profit money to pay for his pleasure by lying on income tax returns in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Rauf is being sued by the Deak Family Foundation which was a big funder of the whole project, run by Robert Leslie Deak, a guy whose bio is odd to say the least.

In any case, we can congratulate Imam Rauf for using Islamist money the right way, by blowing it on Western decadence. May more of his brothers and sisters follow in his devout example.

    In other news, there were millions of dollars donated to build this monument to Islamist Imperialism? Something is wrong with America.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      3 million came from Malaysia apparently

        No friend of America, even when it isn't promoting islamic imperialism.

      Well, something is indeed wrong, when a once proud people have become dhimmis in their land, especially after 9/11/01! There is so much evidence, enough to choke many elephants, that Rauf is part and parcel of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia, the progenitor of Al Qaeda! But never mind. "Nanny Bloomberg", and his gaggle of leftists, screamed "Islamophobia". That bugaboo did the (silencing) trick.

      As to "Islamophobia", it is the biggest con in leftist western discourse, bar none – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/06/islamophobia-

    Donate to the Ground Zero Mosque?
    Now why would anybody with any common sense do a dumb thing like that?

    I read the link to the Observer article of 2010 about Deak (father &son). And the CIA and Goldline! Oh, what a tangled web we live in. Those of us with simple lives who just want to be safe and basically wish to be left alone will be amazed, confused, and horrified. I was.

    I always says but it's true. I'm not surprised by this. Not one bit.

  • jackiestbird

    Now this is funny. I don't care what you say. Muslims the world over are screwing EVERYONE and the idiot Liberals who think they are 'peaceful, wonderful religion' should be crying in their sleep. IDIOTS

  • truebearing

    Go ahead and laugh, you infidels! I did.

    And how will the supportive liberals respond to this admirable behavior on the part of Rauf? First they'll deny it and accuse the media of being islamophobic. Then they'll remember that the media is liberal. They'll concoct a theory about it being the consequences of Palestinian oppression. At some point they will secretly envy Rauf for his windfall. Eventually they will return to their normal state of dimmitude….no, I meant "dim."

  • garyfouse

    I fondly recall Rauf when he spoke at UCLA a year or so ago with that other fraud, Reza. I remember the woman in front of me who was literally swooning listening to Rauf's soothing assurances. I knew it was only a matter of time before he was exposed.

  • Jason

    There is lots more to come and see that developing into to something big.

  • Smote

    Is there no end to the hypocrisy of those ferals? And I thought the biggest crooks all wore suits. Silly me.

  • rangerrebew

    The money probably came from Ali Bama (via taxpayers) as a "stimulus" to begin with.

    Where is the MAYOR or even the GOVERNOR on this? Do they not care that this is happening? Have they been cornered on this? Asked? Bet not. The MAYOR & GOVERNOR need to be held responsible for investigating And Prosecuting these THUGS, THAT WAVE THE KORAN & their beliefs in people's faces and seem to be immune from OUR Laws of the UNITED STATES. They are not immune, hold them Accountable under Our LAWS not Sharia Laws OUR LAWS. They are in the UNITED STATES NOT BACK IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY.
