Con Ed Says It will Evict Ground Zero Mosque Unless $1.7 Million Paid in Back Rent


Well here is one way to get rid of the ground Zero Mosque, evict them for not paying back rent …

Con Ed has given the Ground Zero Mosque developer Park 51 an ultimatum of either paying the $1.7 million in back rent or face eviction and the termination of the lease. Con Ed had increased the rent from $2,750 a month  to $47,437 a month, retroactive to July 31, 2008. Park51 responded with a lawsuit to stop the increase, calling Con Ed’s rent demands “outrageous.” Its not outrageous … its NYC. As mentioned at the American Thinker, the political elites in New York city love the mosque, defended it, marched in support of it. Actually, its about time these mosque folks are treated just like everyone else in New York City.

Con Ed and mosque developer Park51 have an unusual, uneasy alliance, sharing ownership of a site slated to be one of the most controversial projects in city history.

The utility owns a former substation on the western half of the property, at 51 Park Place, and the mosque developers own a five-story building on the eastern half. The buildings were connected years ago and used to house a Burlington Coat Factory store.

Park51, which leases the substation from Con Ed, wants the two buildings so it can knock both down and build a $100 million, 15-story community center.

But the plan hit a major obstacle in August when Con Ed raised the rent from $2,750 a month, a rate set in 1972, to $47,437 a month, retroactive to July 31, 2008, The Post has learned.

Before anyone listens to the the Ground Zero mosque developers crying foul, they might want to look at their past record. As stated at Atlas Shrugs, once again Ground Zero mosqueteer does his deadbeat dance.

How does this guy continue to get a free pass? He expected infidel taxpayers to foot the bill. Clearly he was counting on that $5.5 million from the taxpayer 911 fund he requested, but didn’t get it :)

Here is the truth about the Ground Zero grifter, the story that the media never tells you. This lowlife has defaulted on two bank loans, hasn’t paid his back taxes, was busted for prostitution. Gamal not only beats people up and threatens Muslims who speak out against the mosque, but he is also a tax cheat, owing a quarter of a million in taxes while defaulting on not one, but two bank loans.

      1.7 million is nothing when you consider the oil rich Islamic nations that are are one in the furthering the rise of their ideology in America.

      However … could it be that these Islamic nations are waiting to see if taxpayer funds/grants are first forthcoming under the political correct title of “Promoting the Understanding of Islam”?

      This grifter muslim wanted to build a mosque within sight of ground zero of the 911 attack. This is typical muslum proceedure. Put a mosque where a great victory over christians or in their words the infedel have occured.

      He was trying to become a famous muslum with this activity. Unfortunately for him, he just didn’t have enough money to make it happen.

      Con-Ed needs to foreclose for back rent and maybe get him for fraud.

      Does Mayor Bloomberg realize his buddy Sharif El-Gamal is a tax cheat, deadbeat and grifter?

      “Its not outrageous … its NYC”

      No, you’re thinking of Narnia. Or somewhere else without contract law.
      SM: We shall see.

      @#3-MC—You can bet your bottom dollar that Bloomberg is well aware of El-Gamal’s “financial standing”.

      This Mosque was a bad idea from the beginning. I, for one, hope they are evicted but it would also not be surprising that the DIRTY money is raised.

      1.7M to someone like El-Gamal and the others who are behind the scenes is almost like a drop in the bucket.

      The real kick in the face is that this mosque could have simply been built SOMEWHERE ELSE.

      If some of the Losers that are so involved in the Wall Street “Occupy” protests have a spare minute—they should perhaps consider parking their defecating arses on the front door of the mosque!

      Just sayin’
