It has been reported that the developers looking to build the mosque near Ground Zero are requesting a $5 million grant from the LMDC to help finance the build.

Hopefully the LMDC has done its homework as the developers do not have such a great track record when it comes to managing properties.

According to Mike Kelly of The Record “Rauf' is the owner (along with Daisy Khan) of a slum apartment building in Union City, NJ. The local mayor refers to Rauf as a slumlord. Last week, a judge placed the building in the hands of a custodial receiver until code violations were fixed. (There were more than 200 violations.) The place didn't even have working fire alarms. While Rauf and Khan were out raising money for their Ground Zero mosque, the poor people of Union City were forced to live with rats.” (See full article below)

Now whether you believe the mosque should be built or not do you really think that management of this property would be any better.

Hopefully the LMDC will consider this when making their decision about the grant.

The mayor and all the others fully supporting this effort should have at least done the same fact checking as Mr. Kelly.

Again they have every right to build the mosque but they definitely do not appear to be the people that they present themselves to be and they definitely do not deserve any type of City, State or Federal support of this effort.

Kelly: Mosque developer misses chance to come clean on apartments
