A terrific New York Post editorial pulls no punches about the naked hypocrisy of the organizers of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero.
“No mosque money,” from the New York Post, December 6:
[…] On its face, the use of federal funds for this project would be the height of irony. Picture it: an Islamic center hard by Ground Zero — the very site where Islamists struck Americans on 9/11 — built in part with post-9/11 money from . . . Americans.
Heck, if you’re going to rub your victims’ noses in the dirt, why not use their money to do it?
