Firstly, some details about Ground Zero Mosque:
Park51, originally named Cordoba House, is a planned $100 million, 13-story, glass and steel Islamic community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan. The facility’s design includes a 500-seat auditorium, theater, performing arts center, fitness center, swimming pool, basketball court, childcare area, bookstore, culinary school, art studio, food court, September 11 memorial, and prayer space that could accommodate 1,000–2,000 people. The center would replace an existing 1850s Italianate-style building that was damaged in the September 11 attacks, located about two blocks (600 feet or 180 meters) from the former World Trade Center site, although it would not be visible from the future memorial.
The Cordoba Initiative is partners with the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), who Feisal Abdul Rauf chairs, and under which the site for the $100 million Cordoba House was purchased. The list of financial supporters for the ASMA reads like a who’s who of globalist foundations and includes the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Rockefeller Brothers, Rockefeller Philanthropy, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
Supporters of ASMA:
- Carnegie Corporation of New York
- Rockefeller Brothers
- Rockefeller Philanthropy
- Rockefeller Brothers Fund
- Global Fund for Women
- William & Mary Greve Foundation
- The Sister Fund
- The Russell Family Foundation
- Danny Kaye & Sylvia Fine Foundation
- Graham Charitable Foundation
- Deak Family Foundation
- Henry Luce Foundation
- The Elizabeth Foundation
- The Ms. Foundation
- Hunt Alternatives
The Cordoba Initiative was founded by ‘Imam’ Feisal Abdul Rauf, who is also sitting on the Council on Foreign Relations’ Religious Advisory Committee and the World Economic Forum’s Council of 100.
Feisal Abdul Rauf’s Council on Foreign Relations connection is most striking.
The CFR is a corporate think-tank that supplies our elected representatives with a steady stream of policy and whose membership consists not of intellectual thinkers, but of notorious policy wonks, globalist mega-corporations and bankers. Below is a list of a few of the CFR’s corporate members.
- Bank of America
- Goldman Sachs
- Chevron Corporation
- Exxon Mobil Corporation
- General Electric Company
- JPMorgan Chase & Company
- Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
- Lockheed Martin Corporation
- Morgan Stanley
- Shell Oil Company
- Rockefeller Group International, Inc.
- The Blackstone Group L.P.
- Boeing Company
- DynCorp International
- Raytheon Company
- Rothschild North America, Inc.
Many of these corporations have made trillions of dollars from the Iraq and Afghan wars, some even played integral parts in calling for the wars. Two of which, Veritas’ DynCorp and KBR are in the top ten list of corporations profiting from the war in Iraq.
Now lets see backgrounds of some of the individual members of CFR,
The list contains Former vice-president Dick Cheney. He and nearly the entire Bush-Neocon pro-war inner circle are all CFR members, including Paul Wolfowitz, Elliott Abrams, Vin Weber, John R. Bolton, General Colin L. Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and Robert Zoellick.
The CFR’s war mongering membership is non-partisan. Under front-man Barrack Obama, General David H. Petraeus, Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Timothy F. Geithner, Paul Volcker, Henry M. Paulson, Jr. are all CFR members doing their part to continue the wars and loot the country.
Feisal Abdul Rauf’s membership in the CFR along with the various globalist foundations funding the ASMA and Cordoba Initiative point to the building of the Cordoba House as a deliberate and provocative move by the globalist elite to create more fear, anger, and hatred towards Muslims while expanding the manufactured “clash of civilizations.”
