NEW YORK – Federal prosecutors took steps Thursday to seize four U.S. mosques and a Fifth Avenue skyscraper owned by a nonprofit Muslim organization long suspected of being secretly controlled by the Iranian government.
In what could prove to be one of the biggest counterterrorism seizures in U.S. history, prosecutors filed a civil complaint in federal court against the Alavi Foundation, seeking the forfeiture of more than $500 million in assets.

The assets include bank accounts; Islamic centers consisting of schools and mosques in New York City, Maryland, California and Houston; more than 100 acres in Virginia; and a 36-story glass office tower in New York.
Confiscating the properties would be a sharp blow against Iran, which has been accused by the U.S. government of bankrolling terrorism and trying to build a nuclear bomb.


This is sure to put many bee's in many peoples bonnet.

If they do take them and then tear them down, there will be much tears and death threats (more than normal-

I suspect the shooting at the military base has sparked the federal government to start weeding out terrorist groups.

What is fair for one is fair for ALL.

Why do you think Solomon's temple was destroyed? And then Herod's Temple? And many medieval cathedrals?

If one religion tumbles, they all will....and should.
