Does Rupert Murdoch Stand W/ Families of 9/11 Victims
Or With Ground Zero "Terror Dollars" Financier?


Some thoughts from THE LEFT: GUEST POST by Phillybits

"One has to ask if Rupert Murdoch, owner of News Corp, parent company of FOX News, stands with the families of the victims of 9/11 or if he stands with his #2 owner, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, who owns seven percent of News Corp, and who has been shown to have:

directly funded [Imam Feisal Abdul] Rauf's projects to the tune of more than $300,000"... Prince Al-Waleed's personal charity, the Kingdom Foundation, donated $305,000 to Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow, a project sponsored by two of Rauf's initiatives, the American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative, which is building the Manhattan mosque.


That would surely be a huge insult to not only the families of the victims of the 9/11 attacks who are opposed to the Cordoba House being built at Ground Zero in Manhattan but any American who is opposed to the development as well.

All that said, I know of at least one person who should like to know where Murdoch stands: Pamela Geller of the Atlas Shrugs blog. Not only has she been leading the pack of opposition to the Manhattan community center and mosque project, but she has appeared on Murdoch's FOX News programming to discuss the controversy as well as posting on her blog informing her readers of the controversial funding by use of taxpayer dollars for the imam behind the plans for the center to tour Muslim regions of the world in an outreach effort.

I wonder if FOX News/News Corp pays Geller well whiles she's on to speak out against development of the mosque/community while it's #2 owner simultaneously is providing funding for it's development.
