Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf Accused of Theft

Well ain’t this a fine howdie-doo.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is being sued for stealing money from donors and the Malaysian government. Will Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf now accept Sharia law and apply it to himself by having his hands cut off for stealing? Nah.

The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court by several donors, accuses Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of diverting $167,000 from private donations and $3 million from the Malaysian government for his personal use.

The money was intended for the Cordoba Initiative and the American Society for Muslim Advancement, two non-profits founded by Rauf aimed at educating the public about Islam and combating anti-Islam sentiment, the lawsuit said.

Rauf used the money to pay for vacations, real estate, entertainment, a luxury sports car and other gifts and lavish lifestyle perks for himself and his wife, the lawsuit said. The lawsuit also accused Rauf of falsifying the two groups’ tax returns for several years to conceal fund transfers and sources.

The donors are seeking $25 million in damages

    Where`s Holder when they need him? Should be quite the exercise of “who knows what” justice…Fasinatin`… just plain ol Fasinatin`….

  • 911Infidel

    Nothing like a little corruption to disrupt the conquest Mosque at Ground Zero. Looks like Pam Geller and Spencer were spot on….again…

    “As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise” – Qur’an 5:38

    Good thing ol’ Feisal lives in the west.

  • freeperjim

    islam is an evil, leftist political movement like communism but hides behind the veil of a false, satanic “religion”.

    • badbadlibs

      Best comment on islam I’ve ever read. Short, to the point and every word 100% correct.

  • aposematic

    Couldn’t happen to a better dud(e). (sarc) Maybe Rauf’s best bud Bloomie will get him off.

  • NYGino

    “…two non-profits founded by Rauf aimed at educating the public about Islam..”

    Well I guess we’ve been educated about Islam.

    • Cindy09

      Yep, we’ve paid Jizziah!

    • TimeForAnarchy

      It’s odd, though……..I’m not any smarter about the “Religion of Peace” now than I was when we started.

    • Glad you posted exactly what I was going to post too.

  • Joe

    “I was going to pay it back – EVERY cent – Honest” said Rauf —

    Obama said it was OK – As long as I paid it back!

  • TimeForAnarchy

    “……aimed at educating the public about Islam…….”

    I’m pretty sure I already know all I want to know about 7th century barbarians. And it didn’t require $3MM to do it, either.

    • Suzyqpie

      All I needed to know about islam I learned on 9/11. islam is a murderous totalitarian theocracy that treats women as chattel. It might be a dandy “religion” for men but it sucks for women.

      • TexasPGRRider

        “All I need…9/11”. First time I saw that comment, it was painted across the tailgate of a pickup truck with the towers burning in the background. My thoughts EXACTLY about a political agenda disguised as a religion….

      • badbadlibs

        It’s odd (not really), but I’ve never heard of a “religion” that was NOT based in Biblical principles and the truths of Jesus that wasn’t a “Man’s religion”.
        Jesus was revolutionary in many ways, one of them was how He treated women…with respect and held them in high esteem. 🙂

  • NYGino

    Do you suppose Bloomingidiot didn’t get his cut and ratted him out? Hmmmm.

    • Suzyqpie

      Interesting hypothesis, NYGino, in fact very interesting. Who didn’t get their expected largesse (money,vacation,press, bon mot) when the good imam hordes the cash for his own consumption? Who ratted him out….if this saga disappears, as so frequently happens in the moslem imam mafia msm, we can gather again, to speculate on the sequence of events. This is tripwire stuff…I’m threatening this….if you don’t do that….where’s the money I want some of the take…nice little house ya got there….I know where your kids go to school….I hope scoop does a follow up.

      • NYGino

        “.. moslem imam mafia msm..” great alliteration.

    • PVG

      No honor among thieves, my friend!

  • americalsgt

    I interrupt with this breaking news. Power has been restored to Riverside, RI. Thank you, thank you. Let there be pasta and corn dogs for all.

    • TexasPGRRider

      May the beaming Southern Cross guide you throughout life`s journey…Thank You SIR, for My FREEDOM !!!!

  • las1

    Get with the program there 911… stealing from the Kuffar is not a crime in Islam… it’s jizya.

  • sDee

    Pamela Geller was warning the world about this guy’s finances and shady deals and years ago. She was attacked and branded an islamophobe and bigot.

    Bloomy and the Letterman Cocktail crowd paraded him around like a new puppy.

    How long will we let these elitists keep stealing out money and using it to rape America before we rise up and toss them in the Hudson and Potomac like bales of Tea??

    • DCGere

      Geller spot on, as usual. Nanny Bloomberg and all that supported this jerrk will remain silent. Truth can’t get in the way of their agendas.

    • And contaminate the waters too? Let’s send them to Guantanamo, oh hell we can’t that place is closed, isn’t it?

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Sounds like the two non-profit organizations were in truth Rauf-profit organizations!!!! I’m curious to see how this plays out.

    • TexasPGRRider

      That makes them taxable entities…Call the IRS !!!!

  • sjmom

    I guess if you can kill innocents in the name of Allah you can steal in his name also because as Jesus said the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy.

  • Well there you have it, The religion of peace .

    • TexasPGRRider

      In this case “piece”… of the donation coffers….

  • Ray

    NO, someone who did not care whom he offended steals?

  • I think anyone who donated gets what they deserved. And if the mosque didn’t get built because he swiped the money, so much the better!

  • colliemum

    Och, $25 million only? That’s peanuts. The Magic Kingdom will happily pay that from their petty cash.

  • Jay

    This guy from Chicago?

  • Yazz55

    The lapdog lamestream drive by media will likely give it the same level of coverage it gave the Benghazi congressional hearings last week.

    That means that no one who gets their news from them will ever know anything about this.

  • Jaels_Song

    Perhaps for his grand thievery he can be rewarded as Jon Corzine was and become one of Obama favorite bundlers.

  • Sober_Thinking

    So, the “peaceful religion” now allows Imam’s to steal? Is that like lying for them? He can steal, only if it’s the infidel’s money?

  • bobemakk

    What else can we expect from a Muslim extremist? I hope they throw the book at him.

  • That is par for the course in the ME.

  • Godisright

    The true Islamist is trained to lie, cheat and steal. What should we expect?
