'They Kept Talking About Wanting To Build Bridges, But They Weren't Answering Any Questions'

Sure, the developers of the Ground Zero Mosque talk about building bridges, aided and supported by the media who calls anyone who disagrees with them racists, bigots, Nazis, etc. Yet these people have perfected the art of double-speak, much like their leftwing brethren.

Perfect case in point is Daisy Khan, the smug, arrogant, supercilious wife of Feisal Abdul Rauf, last seen traipsing around the Middle East on our dime looking to drum up money for this deeply unpopular project. If anyone wants to know what he's doing, nobody seems to know. Then when families and survivors dare to ask questions of this haughty woman they're greeted with non-answers.

Yet we're all supposed to just get along, apparently.
Backers of the Ground Zero mosque held a secret meeting this month with a handful of 9/11 victims' families in an attempt to ease their suspicions about the project -- but it may have had the opposite effect, several in attendance told The Post.

Convened Aug. 10 by Daisy Khan, wife of Feisal Abdul Rauf, the imam for the controversial mosque, and Sharif El Gamal, one of its developers, the meeting had been billed as a chance for the families to get their questions answered.

But retired firefighter Robert Reeg, 58, who was injured on 9/11, said the mosque backers refused to say one word about where the $100 million in financing would come from.

"They kept talking about wanting to build bridges, but they weren't answering any questions," he said.

Raheel Raza, a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, who also raised questions about financing, described Khan and El Gamal as "very arrogant" at the get-together at the Interfaith Center on Riverside Drive.
So here you have victims of Muslim terror desperate to disprove they're racists and bigots and they get nowhere with these people.
"I went in wanting to embrace this. I think we were all tolerant of other religions, and I didn't want to be portrayed as a bigot," she said. "But I left more certain than when I arrived that this mosque was something I didn't want to see."
She didn't want to be portrayed as a bigot.

Well, she needs to get used to it. Seventy percent of the public is now apparently bigoted according to Democrats and the media, who in two and a half months will deeply regret their current behavior in this case.

As to Rauf, his media enablers have gone to great lengths to portray him as a moderate, here's a reality check. Yet according to some aspiring political commentators, Rauf's just peachy. It's guys like New Gingrich who are scary fanatics.
