El-Gamal says he is calling the shots on Ground Zero mega-mosque, and isn't moving
The waiter-turned-millionaire developer (a transformation not yet satisfactorily explained) Sharif El-Gamal has said that "when you beat up someone physically you get exercise & stress relief," and he has a history of run-ins with the law. But now the mainstream media is in full-bore whitewash mode, even as he digs in his heels and continues to try to demonize the opponents of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero. Pamela Geller has video of the Today's Show's love letter to El-Gamal, along with some choice observations from herself, here.
He may be insisting that he is calling the shots on the project because his partner Hisham Elzanaty recently said that he was.
