I have a good friend who runs a fairly obscure blog called "Sword At-The-Ready." INVAR, my friend-blogger, has done some of the best coverage of the 9/11 attacks in Cairo and Benghazi that I've seen, so I offer that blog Home Page link so anyone who's interested can check out that coverage.
This story is only tangentially related to those attacks though. Those of us who are Christians know without a doubt that the Jefferson phrase, "wall of separation between church and state" has been twisted to mean exactly the opposite of what it did when the Father of the Constitution penned it, and even non-Christians who are intellectually-honest, and adhere to original intent of our founding documents, know it too.
But OK, so the Faithful lost and the "separation" is basically now no religious expression anywhere near the Public Square. So why do you suppose our tax dollars are being used to build and/or renovate isalamic mosques around the world? My friend, INVAR, has written about it here, and here's what he has to say:
September 15, 2012 · 8:00 pmSo the next time you see Obama respectfully and lovingly touring some opulent, gilded mosque in the middle of some 7th Century Middle-Eastern city, rest easy knowing that if you're a working, tax-paying American, you helped pay for it.
Investigation: Obama Funding Mosques Around The World At U.S. Taxpayer Expense
United States investing millions to refurbish mosques as a good-will effort to Jihadist regimes and radical Muslim groups in the Middle East.
Oh no, Obama is not Muslim they insist. But at every turn – we find Obama either funding, orchestrating or enabling Jihadist Islam to gain an upper hand in the world.
His State Department was responsible for leaving American Embassies unguarded, and hiring local security – loyal to Jihadists to protect them and American staffers. They ordered U.S. guards to be unarmed, carrying no live ammunition. Obama’s regime joins the chorus of Islamists that insist a silly YouTube video incited the attacks that just so-happened to occur spontaneously on the anniversary of 9-11. The federal government of the United States is going after the makers of the video, taking into custody – one of them for questioning. Obama is refusing to meet with Israel’s Prime minister, but is instead meeting the Muslim Brotherhood president next week.
Now we learn Obama’s State Department has been using millions of our tax dollars to restore and remodel mosques in the Middle East.
Breaking from Pat Dollard.com
While this is outrageous considering events of the past week, it is nothing new for Obama. In 2010 – the Obama regime sent radical Imama Feisal Abdul Rauf - the mastermind of the Ground Zero Mosque, on a trip through the Middle East on our dime, to “foster greater understanding” of Islam and Muslims in the U.S.A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that the State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas.
…The State Department declined a Channel 2 Action News request for an interview. We wanted to ask why are we using tax dollars to refurbish religious buildings overseas. The State Department did send Channel Two Action News an e-mail saying that they are fighting Islamic extremism by building relationships with Islamic leaders.
…“We are rebuilding mosques to support the radicals, not to support the moderates. We are building mosques to issue fatwas of death against people like me,” said Darwish.
….Your tax dollars also fund computers and mosques in places like Tajikistan and Mali. At an ancient mud brick mosque in Mali, the State Department has provided Internet service and computer equipment to local imams.
Drones for Obama insist that this program is to aid in the repair of ‘cultural heritage sites’ throughout the world, and that this program began under Bush. That’s not accurate. The program began under Bill Clinton and was funded by Congress during Bush’s first term. The specific funding of Mosques appears to be directed since 2009.
So much for ‘separation of church and state’. That obviously only applies to Christians and Jews.

Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to Police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.
What a great thing for the president to do, save historic mosques, while sites important to AMERICAN history closed or are sold off to developers. By all means, fund the preservation of the "history" of a religion that would like to see the end of our way of life, but don't save our own history. I don't know if Obama is a Muslim, but if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, well, you can figure it out. Maybe in November, we can start putting a stop to the flow of taxpayers cash to places and people that really don't support our way of thinking. Excuse me, that may start to happen in January if things go better for America in November. And that's my Sunday morning rant.
