And Now, Daisy Khan’s $12,000 Taxpayer-Funded Trip to the UAE

Yes, fresh from denouncing America on national television as a place rife with “hate of Muslims,” a place so Islamophobic that “it’s beyond Islamopobia,” Daisy Khan, co-planner of the Ground Zero mosque project, will soon be hopping a plane at taxpayer expense, courtesy of the State Department, to jet from New York to the United Arab Emirates and deliver to the Emiratis her views about Muslim life in America . . .

I've seen more money wasted on training exercises and also conference attendances by Commissioned Officers. I've also see the exorbent amount of money spent on bases we're not staying at in Iraq, and also the insane amount of money we've given to KBR, Blackwater and other civilian entities that were a complete waste of the taxpayers dollar.

Did you watch that "denouncement"? If you did, then you know that she did not denounce America at all, but the intolerance of some people in America. Or are you going to claim that there is no anti-Islamic intolerance (in the face of an abundan?

In that video, she and Rabbi Levitt called for understanding and tolerance.

A giant wall of text is so unpleasent that no one is going to sit there and read it. Good formatting is what separates us from the animals, after all.
