In typical liberal fashion, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wants to investigate the patriotic Americans who oppose the spit-in-your eye plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero in New York City where Islamic terrorists murdered nearly 3,000 Americans on 911.
And like the typical “mainstream” media, American journalists are more interested in doing that or doing nothing than actually following the money trail of those who want to erect this insult to America. Leave it to Fox News to attempt what the rest of the “mainstream” media won’t do.
In the first video below which came out on Wednesday, Fox News attempted to interview Sharif El-Gamal, a 37 year old developer. Just a few years ago, he was waiting tables and now he’s a multi-million dollar developer. Hmmmm.
His company, Soho Properties, owns the old Burlington Coat Factory where Islamists plan to erect the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. He paid for the property–where landing gear from one of the planes that hit the WTC crashed through the roof–in cash. When local Fox reporter Charles Leaf tried to interview him, El-Gamal ran from the camera.
For a guy who was a waiter just a few years ago, El-Gamal has taken to throwing around millions of dollars on properties, some of which have sold for remarkable prices in soft market conditions.
It seems someone named Hisham Elzanaty who was born in Egypt is acting as guarantor of one of his loans. Elzanty, too, was camera-shy. Multiple attempts at an interview met with the man’s back as he fled.
Fox 5 also found that Elzanty had some trouble with Medicare payments one of his companies should not have received. He was ordered to repay $331,336 in ill-gotten gains.
Will others in the media join the search for answers?
The second video came out Thursday and follows the money trail further.
