Ground Zero mega-mosqueteer loses in court, owes Con Ed 1.7 million in rent
ou gotta love these Islamic surpremacists. They think they can get away with .... murder. I think I am going to send Con Ed an extra few bucks next Christmas. Finally, Gamal was exposed out loud and in public. The lawyer for Con Ed called the grifter Gamal what he is, a "deadbeat slumlord," and argued that Gamal "doesn't have a prayer" of paying the $1.7 million he owes in back rent. Gamal geller photo
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, and 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. All this while being evicted from his Soho offices for non-payment of rent. And Mayor Gloomberg licks his boot. He has him over at Gracie Mansion for dinner. Why? What did this hustler do other than disrepect, offend and degrade millions of Americans with his plans for a 15-story triumphal mosque on Ground Zero? And now he defaults on $1.7 million in back rent to Con Edison.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if some angel bought the building after the mosqueteers were evicted, and built a memorial to the well over 270 million victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements? That's what belongs in a building destroyed in the 911 attacks.
Need I tell Atlas readers how much joy it brought to me to write this post? We defeated the Ground Zero mosque, and don't you forget it.
Con Ed wins case for $1.7 million in back rent from Ground Zero mega-mosque developer
The mainstream media has lionized this deadbeat thug, and will no doubt continue to do so. But he continues to show the true, ugly face of the Ground Zero Mosque project, which has suffered some serious setbacks due to the determination of the American people, but could still be built with a bit of oil money from overseas to settle up this deadbeat's debts. Right now, however, the project is stalled, although El-Gamal and his cronies have declared victory and are holding events in the 45 Park Place building that was severely damaged in the 9/11 jihad attack.
"Con Ed wins one over mosque back rent," by Lois Weiss for the New York Post, July 3 (thanks to Barbara):
Chalk one up for Con Edison in its battle over back rent with the mosque developer at 51 Park Place.
The Post has learned that in June, State Supreme Court Judge Richard Braun upheld the $10.35 million appraisal price obtained by the utility, which it used to calculate the rent.
Con Ed argues that it is owed $1.7 million in back rent and $47,437 a month in rent for the building that sits on its land. But Sharif El-Gamal, the Park51 Mosque developer, contends Con Ed’s math is bad and that it owes $881,519 in back rent and $25,875 a month going forward.
"We were confident that the appraisal process was sound. We are pleased with the court’s ruling,” said Con Ed spokesman Allan Drury.
But not so fast. El-Gamal’s attorney, Matthew Hearle, said yesterday they plan to file a notice of appeal.
