According to some shocking new reports, a Channel 2 Action News investigation found that the State Department is sending millions of dollars overseas to save mosques.
On Thursday afternoon, a government commission made an announcement suggesting huge cuts to the budget, including eliminating the interest education for home mortgage. This, mixed with the United States investing millions to refurbish mosques, has upset many taxpayers.
“We are spending money we don’t have,” Jared Thomas, a taxpayer advocate, told reporters. “This is all on a gigantic credit card right now.”
Millions of dollars have reportedly been sent to places like Cyprus, where the State Department published before and after pictures of mosques that have been refurbished.
“I think it is very hard to explain to the American taxpayer right now whose having an extraordinary time paying bills and making ends meet that this is why we took this out of your paycheck, so we can fund this,” Thomas continued.
The State Department declined a Channel 2 Action News request for an interview.
“We are rebuilding mosques to support the radicals, not to support the moderates,” Egyptian-American human rights activist Nonie Darwish commented. “We are building mosques to issue fatwas of death against people like me.”
What do you think of these reports? Is this absolutely outrageous?
