U.S. funds restoration of global Islamic sites
$6 million earmarked for 55 countries part of effort to reach out to the Muslim world
The good-will tour of the Middle East by the imam behind the proposed mosque near ground zero is just part of the U.S. government’s efforts to reach out to the Muslim world.
This year, the Obama administration will spend nearly $6 million to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including mosques and minarets, in 55 nations.
Under a program established by Congress in 2001, the State Department will fund at least five projects in as many countries to the tune of $271,000.
Those include the 16th century Grand Mosque in Tongxin, China, and the 18th century Golden Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan.
The Obama Muslim outreach program continues, and it is getting more outrageous by the day. We should not be helping Islamic countries at all, but since we are why doesn’t Islamophile Obama be fair, and ask those Islamic countries if he can restore Churches and Synagogues in them? I hate to admit it, but the US is the most pro-Islamic, non-Islamic government going. Islam goes against American values, but our politicians are too blinded by the political correct disease. They need to be voted out.
