Quotes-start.png "Rauf has said to domestic audiences that money to build the 13-story mosque-cum-community center will be raised from among American Muslims -- though he hasn't said from whom. Yet he recently told an Arabic-language newspaper in Britain that funding would also come from Arab countries. And that's a red flag. As laid out in a 2005 report from Freedom House, financing mosques abroad to spread the radical Wahhabist strain of Islam is one of the main ways Saudi Arabia keeps its own radicals pacified."
