Queens Blvd mosque owner funneled money to Iran


From the Daily News:

Putting the squeeze on Tehran, the feds moved Thursday to seize a mosque in Queens and a Fifth Avenue skyscraper from a nonprofit organization suspected of secretly funneling money to Iran.

"The Alavi Foundation has effectively been a front for the government of Iran," said Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara, who sued to grab more than $500 million in assets.

Bharara said that for two decades, the Alavi Foundation has been secretly controlled by a series of Iranian ambassadors to the United Nations.

Foundation president Farshi Jahedi was charged last year with obstruction of justice for allegedly trying to destroy documents after receiving a grand-jury subpoena.
Apart from 650 Fifth Avenue, the feds announced they were going after the Imam Ali Mosque in Woodside as well as Islamic schools and centers in California, Maryland, Virginia and Texas that allegedly got funds from the Alavi Foundation.


And from the AP:

At the Islamic Institute of New York, a mosque and school in Queens, two U.S. marshals came to the door and rang the bell repeatedly. The marshals taped a forfeiture notice to the window and left a large document sitting on the ground. After they left a group of men came out of the building and took the document.

Woodside again, eh?

Islam, unfortunately has become cancerous within virtually all of it's host countries.

I have friends in the Philippines and a second residence in Bangkok (Th). Both of these countries have small but increasingly violent Muslim uprisings.

France with 15% Muslim has a looming disaster if they don't deal decisively with it.

Even here in New York State, an enclave of Islamics in upstate proposed integrating portions of Sharia "law" into their local covenants.

Both the Filipinos and Thais retain a knack and taste for going "old school" on their enemies..I don't know how Europe will deal with their threat within.

yeah, Woodside! Maybe some one wants to start looking into who really owns the apartment buildings there!


have to say it is being turned into a slum. food trucks on the street, day laborers, crap being sold on the sidewalks by illegal immigrants.

excuse me, but wasn't there something a while back called zero population growth? How come the Mexicans and other invaders never heard of it?

observe how the vibrant diversity likes to kill any trees on 61st Street.

Lino, I completely agree. People need to know that these are not isolated incidents. These fanatics are trained. In Queens, we are in Gathering Central. I KNOW THAT.

Lino, please give links to the enclaves you are referencing, it will go far to stop them.

Lino,

Check out the Philippine island of Mindanao, the southernmost island of the nation.

It has a very large Muslim population, and, during the 1970s, was, for a short time, occupied by uniformed soldiers from Qaddafi's Libya.

Ferdinand Marcos went on a land theft binge in the 1970s, stripping trees to the roots to sell to the wood-starved Japanese.

The stolen trees were taken from land long owned by farmers who were never compensated for so much as a leaf.

Until this period, the vastly large Christian population lived peacefully with the substantial Muslim people. Marriage and commerce was the order of the day.

Qaddafi and Iran's Ayatollah took the opportunity to inflame the Philippine Muslims while at the same time they the Jihadists were busy firing the flames that are burning today.

I'm sure these Mosques are also exempt from certain taxes. Time for the government to take them and send these foreigners packing. It's also time to move the UN overseas. All these invaders want to set up shop here in America, make their money and send it home. Islam has already invaded Europe and are now set on taking over America. Very scary.

The history of the mosque on Queens Blvd. First it was a empty lot. Then the white brick structure for 20 years was built as a processing center for the John Hancock Insurance Company with its huge logo. For ten years, divided into commercial offices and some retail, I remember the Baldwin Piano Outlet Store. In the 70's the place was transfomed with the Shah's money into an Islamic Center. The then-mostly second-generation of European immigrant neighborhood thought it odd because no Muslims lived in the neighborhood at that time. I was invited in for a visit. At the time it was mostly a school and offices, with a very small place set aside for prayer. More like a prayer room than a mosque. Of course, post-Khomeni and during the hostage crisis it was a focus of what was called then "anti-Iranian backlash".

Some 20 years later, there was (and remain to a lesser extent) a lot of sharp elbows as the Hispanic, East Asian, South Asian, and Middle Eastern people flowed into Woodside to turn 1 and 2 family homes into 3 and 5 or more family units with the traffic and the Asia-fication and Mexi-fication of Woodside proceeded. Woodside is an address not a community. The same can be said of many neighborhoods in Queens. It's not as if they are failing to create a community outside their own ethnic enclave, they are largely limited by language and time available to do so, and don't see any need for it.

Since Iran is supporting forces against ours in Iraq, Afganistan, and elsewhere, it could be viewed that the people providing the funds as well as the mosque owner are guilty of treason.
If citizens try them.
If non-citizens, deport them.

In the early 1900's New york state had problems with European fanatics trying to get a foothold in this great country.The solution was our Gov't deported them back to there country and weren't aloud back.I suggest New york do the same again.

The Muslims are invading our country just like they invaded Europe. The government needs to stop coddling these people and needs to stop being politically correct and clamp down on them. Only citizens should be allowed to own American properties and our immigration laws need to be enforced. I'd be very happy to deport all of them. If we don't do something soon, the Muslims will be the dominant force in the US. Remember their motto, "KILL THE INFIDELS."

OH PLEASE... So what?? The U.S. government militarily and economically aids dictatorships in Egypt and Saudi Arabia... yet, we say nothing because the media tells us that Iran is the problem. The U.S. government also aids militarily and economically the zionist state of Israel. All of this with U.S. taxpayer money! So, a mosque wants to send money to a few ngos, lets get over it.

Well... how ignorant we can be.. If only history was emphasized in our educational system...

Europe invaded the "Middle East," just as the U.S. invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. So don't complain.

Sorry but colonial powers get what they deserve. There is a complete link to muslim immigration and european colonialism just as there is a link to Latin American immigrantion and United States' meddling in Latin America (people go where the resources from their native lands are taken to). Remember the British mandate? The Brits destroyed the "Middle East" (Middle and East to Europe, that is where the term 'Middle East' came from). Just as the United States destroyed Latin America, from invasions, to coups, to supporting military dictatorships, oppressive loan 'agreements,' structural adjustment programs, etc. Stop being ignorant racists and crack open a book.

Please check out the Korean churches, they are fronts for business! so they don't have to pay taxes. In fact this is how many, many illegal immigrants come to the US through churches.

There is an apt building on 62nd Street owned by a Korean church. this building, once a showplace, now in like a slum in a third world country. go right in to take a peek, the front door is always broken open. The pastor/slumlord routinely harasses the sole American living there, a WWII veteran. If they have a overnight guest, he starts harassing them, claiming the rent must be raised. This is an elderly person. What happened to the Oriental reverence for age?

Since when are churches allowed to put neon crosses on their buildings and why? As churches they enjoy tax free status and can use the non profit status w/ the IRS as a fiscal conduit for other enterprises. The what is it called now? New Life Baptist Korean Church on 61st St & 38th Avenue just so happens to have many Korean owned business's surrounding it. The garage across the street, that's now a McMansion, the nail salons, the many dry cleaners who are happy to take your money and ruin your clothes. When you say oh, there's a problem with this coat I brought in that you messed up, all of a sudden they can't speak English.

Check out the Church vans, see the luxury automobiles there every Sunday not from the area! Hear the crappy music/screaming/pounding broadcast at 5:50am until 7:30am weekday mornings They did this during the black out but did NOTHING to help residents. They do no out reach to the community, no soup kitchen, no clothes closet, it's all for Koreans.

And... please someone. look at their HUGE neon cross w/ what looks like an antennae on top. This is in a flight pattern to La Guardia airport. why are they allowed to do this? they did not have neon on the cross before 9/11.

Does the DHCR bag boy for the slumlords, Chan Jo, attend this "church"?

start asking why are Koreans so powerful in Queens real estate. All that money from ho houses and loan sharking has to be washed somewhere.

Dear Salvatore,

You're missing the point. This crap is happening in New York, in Queens, in our neighborhoods. Whatever fault the US government has does not diminish that our lives are being put in danger. Yes, some of this anger might be misdirected, but if something happens to our mass transit system (for example), in the end, the blame will fall on the perpetrators.

Is Archie Bunker actually posting some of these comments?

If we are going to throw out all the Muslims, can we ditch the non-believers and Christians too? Send 'em all home.

The US Government has been increasingly restricting immigration since the late 19th century. Since then folks have been entering this country illegally, putting down roots, working hard, and becoming productive and valuable members of our society and community.

Obviously, within any religious of ethnic group, there are segments that behave in ways that show lack of respect, contempt, and even hate for their new fellow citizens.

Off the top of my head, I'm thinking about

*Radical Islamists who kill innocents

*Italians who institute regimes of violence and extortion (AKA the Mob)

*Religious groups that concentrate in an area and build housing that is out of scale

*Poor immigrants that pack 15 people in a space meant for 2 and tax city services and sanitation (I'm thinking of Irish and Germans in tenements)

Point being, none of these issues are new to the American experiment. The understanding of recent groups in other terms than history remembers European immigrants is, quite simply, based on the color of the new comers skin, and their divergent faiths.

Not to be nasty, but the prejudice of the Archie Bunker set is dying, and fast. Most of the 'good' Italian, Irish, German families bailed on NYC a long time ago, spreading out across the country. 3 out of 4 times a house changes hands it is sold to one of the 'invaders,'

Note that if the Archie Bunkers who owned all the homes in the area 30 years ago hadn't sold to the highest payer, the 'Crapification' of Queens would have never happened. So, Mr. Bunker, you have no one to blame but yourself for being more greedy than committed to your bigotry.

All of America cries for you.

BTW, I'm so damn white my ethnicity is American. And I love my neighbors in Queens-it's why I choose to live here.

Don't we have a repersentative in Congress who deals with these matters? Our "buddy" Gary:

Congressman Ackerman is the Chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia. The subcommittee, a key panel of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, has jurisdiction over United States policy towards all countries in the Middle East and South Asia, including important U.S. allies Israel and India. The committee’s purview extends over some of the world’s most contentious hotspots such as Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Congressman is also a member and the former Chair of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific which has oversight on U.S. policy towards nations in Asia.

As the Vice Chairman of the full Foreign Affairs Committee, Ackerman plays major leadership roles in flash point areas of the world. Often, these involve national security, nuclear proliferation and terrorism issues in areas such as the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Latin America.

A Representative’s representative, he was also Congress’ delegate to the United Nations. In addition, he twice Co-Chaired the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans. Further, he is the President of the International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians (ICJP) which consists of Jewish lawmakers from congresses and parliaments across the globe.

Muslims are at war with the US. They come here, get a foothold in a neighborhood, procreate and wait until they outnumber US citizens. They don't have to assimilate to our country or fire any weapons, they just have to reproduce. They also infiltrate our military, our politics and our workforce. Fifty years from now, the US will look like the Middle East. It's our government's fault for letting this happen. They can be bought and sold and only think of the monetary gain. It's disgusting.

History didn't just start in the 20th century. The Sultans in the Philippines sold out their own people long before Marcos was even born and Europeans did not invent slavery, racism, or sexism. Muslims were doing this to their own people long before there was a USA.

the immigration & naturalization act of 1965.
a democratic controlled congress. the republicans were powerless to stop it.House of Reps.voted 326-69. the senate voted 76-18. l.johnson signed it into law.
during the debate on the senate floor KENNEDY ,speaking of the effects of the act, uttered words which later became famous for their irony :first,our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. under the proposed bill,the present level of immigration remains substantially the same... secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset... contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigration from any one country or area, or the most populated & deprived nations of Africa & Asia...the bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. it will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. it will not relax the standards of admission. it will not cause American workers to lose their jobs........

results: by equalizing immigration policies,the act resulted in new immigration from non-european nations which changed the ethnic make-up of the U.S.. immigration doubled between 1965-70, & doubled again between 1970-90. the most dramatic effect was to shift immigration from Europe to Asia.!!!!!!.....see:wikipedia....

The problem is not the radical Muslim but it is moderate Muslims who refuse to assimilate into the culture. How many stories do we have to read about businesses or institutions changing policy so they don't offend Muslims. It is the moderate Muslim who doesn't acknowledge the Misogyny and Violence in their religion. For all the faults of Christianity and Judaism they allow for a process of change and transformation.

If one refuses to see Muslim immigration as destructive maybe you should ask the women in Sweden, Norway, Denmark how safe they feel in a country where more than 50 percent of rapes are committed by Muslims. If crimes against women are not enough we can go into the destruction of Freedom of speech in the Netherlands, UK and Denmark by Muslims who have intimidated journalists.

Whoever wrote this has the same mindset as was recently displayed by Ackerman and Schenkler when they brought Dan Halloran's religious preference, paganism, to the forefront. In the U.S., we have the right to express ourselves in whatever manner we choose, no matter how distasteful or odd some religious practices and customs seem to be. Who the hell are any of us to judge? Of course the line is drawn when violence or destruction is employed to promote one's faith over another.

People exploit our religious freedoms. Women are NOT property in America - BUT in certain "religions" they are. If a Muslim man wore a burka over his face (when NOT in a sandstorm) - they would have something to say. If an Orthodox Jewish man wore a wig and black tights ON HOT and HUMID days like his wife does - then he too would have something to say. If there were female "prophets" living on Christian "compounds" - hada hada hada.

Save your patronizing tone for someone who EXPLOITS our country's religious freedom for their own PERVERSIONS please.

AND Halloran looked weird too on his knees dressed as Superman in the park surrounded by women in long black dresses.

Someone actually believes Islam is a religion of peace and it is the fringe elements that give it a bad name. I wonder if we can call the factory workers at a Tyson chicken plant terrorist when they voted to celebrate Eid al-Fitr instead of Labor Day . The Muslim cabbies in Minnesota who refuse to drive people with dogs were not the work of radicals. When Church's Chicken decided to remove pork from the menu they weren't a terrorist cell. They are a few examples where Muslims do not adapt to the culture of their host country.

People do not have the moral ground when they call posters racists, paranoid or xenophobes. It shows a condescending attitude toward genuine fear. They just refuse to believe that unchecked immigration can be dangerous.

George! Long time! lol, See, I respect your fascist values. At least you have a backbone and are upfront with your views. Unlike the silly liberals (postmodernists hipsters) who have no ideology.

To the person who called Obama a socialist-liberal... actually... socialism has nothing to do with liberalism. On the contrary, liberalism is closely tied with capitalism. Take a political theory class.

"Fascist?" There you go with the leftist fascination uttering of fricatives and sibillants. True oral fixation in the absence of intellectual rigueur. Be sure to wipe the babbling drool up with your Che Guevara nightie before hitting the crib.

Objectivism is a totally different coin from the Commie/Fascist currency you peddle.

Read a political theory book.

@ Salvatore...
"Take a political theory class."

And there you go again getting your elitist undies in a twist. Didn't your Marxist ideologues in NYU teach you how to manipulate and persuade using Alinksy's rules for radicals? Come now. Work on those reading comprehension and attention skills, you commie pinko. ;@)

Socialism, Communism, Marxism, it's all the same flawed base ideology no matter what flavor of the day prefix one uses.

Now back to the subject at hand... Islam versus the infidels. The unfinished war of 622AD.

This mass stereo-typing needs to stop. The person who mentioned Moslems in the Philippines. Does he or she know that the U.S. occupied the Philippines and not until they killed 4,000 Americans that America was ready to leave? The moslems there are no threat to the Philippines. If there are radical moslems there; then there are radical Christians too. Radicalism is part of every religion and political ideology on this planet.

Shalom. Please do not accuse the Jews of attacking the U.S.S. Liberty because they did not. No Jew wants a war with the U.S. Thanks for your free taxpayers money in billions every year but no Jew is stupid enough to attack the U.S. As Israel's source of funds and military advanced weaponry we will NEVER be stupid enough to attack the U.S.
Come to Israel and visit us.
