Donald Trump Offers Cash DEAL for NYC Mosque

9/9/2010 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump is single-handedly trying to put an end to the controversial NYC mosque slated to be built near Ground Zero ... and he's doing it by flexing his wallet.

Donald Trump Mosque

Trump has offered to pay the owners of the property the amount they purchased the property for ... plus an extra 25%.

As part of the deal, Trump is asking that the mosque be built at least 5 blocks from the WTC site.

Trump says he doesn't even think his offer is a good business deal, but he's doing it, "Because it will end a very serious, inflammatory, and highly divisive situation that is destined, in my opinion, to only get worse."

Of course, Donald's offer is all cash. No word yet on how the offer is being received by the property owner.

0909_tmzlive_small_v2UPDATE: Harvey called Trump during TMZ Live today to talk to him about the offer ... click the audio player to check it out.

UPDATE:  The lawyer for the investor in the real estate partnership that controls the site just said Trump's offer is "just a cheap attempt to get publicity and get in the limelight."  But it looks like the investor is pissed off at Donald's price, not the principle.

I think this is a wonderful gesture!!!!Donald Trump has the money to back up this offer and as much as he may like the attention of being able to do this, i think it is an honorable offer to help all americans and all muslims who truly want to live in our country and not cause problems.

This just goes to show you no matter how much money is offered, the rejection will occur over and over. It proves that this is nothing about money, and everything to do with sending a message to the American public that the terrorist are hell bent on making their mark and this is just the beginning.

They can put that damn mosque anywhere but they picked this local so that they can flip off all Americans. While freedom of religion is part of what we covet most, this group is really being disrespectful to all of us. Something horrible happened near this site and we aren't going to forget it no matter how much these Muslims wish we would. FIND ANOTHER SPOT, period. Stop needling all of us with this issue. It's only going to net you a great deal of rage from ALL Americans.

Muslims are not above killing their own in order to kill the infidel. Perhaps you should read the Koran and learn. Their Prophet Mohammad is a pedophile and hate filled Don't be so blind to the power of their CULT. The peaceful Muslims that you work with would stab you in the back if is so ordered by one of their leaders. They don't adhere to the golden rule (Do unto others)as it doesn't exist in their religion Don't think for one moment you can fully trust any one of them. Are you aware that they believe Jesus was one of their prophets and that Mary and Joseph were Muslims, not Jewish?



Al Walla wal Baraa is the SECOND MOST IMPORTANT DOCTRINE in Islam after the singleness of Allah.

This is the BEST SUPPORTED OF ALL ISLAMIC DOCTRINES in the Koran and Writings about Mohamed.

'Baraa' simply means 'being free' of disease. Infidels are worse than the plague and must be controlled and quarantined.

The best translation for Baraa is actually 'apartheid' the total segregation of Muslims from infidels outside of work...Islamic apartheid.

We fought apartheid in South Africa so we could have it in The USA.

Women are covered to defend the 'honour' of a man. Only the man is allowed to see the woman. If another man sees her, he loses 'honour'...i.e. absolute control. His 'honour' is restored through violence.

In this way, the veil is a symbol of violence to women sanctioned by Allah. If they step out of line (through disobedience) women must be beaten or killed. In Muslim countries, only a reduced sentence follows an honour killing. I don't know of an Islamic country that keeps statistics on physical abuse of women.

Women have half the rights of Muslim men.

One of the most important things to do in life is identify those who are your enemies and wish you harm. It's hooked into self preservation and all humans have this trait. That said, Muslims are definitely enemies of the US of A. They proved it on September 11, 2001. All of them are loyal to each other more than the rest of us when it comes right down to brass tacks. Know your enemy or they will do something even worse to us. Guaranteed. Do not let them fool you, they all stick together just as we should.

Study up on the life of Muslim women. It will make you ill. They have no labia or ****oris. Most Muslim girls have them removed in adolescence. They are receptacles, that's it. Study up on Saudi Arabian women. Add in the women of Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan. I have a physician friend that told me she has treated many very young Muslim girls that are literally bleeding to death because of this surgery. She works in the emergency dept at a major hospital in Maryland. She is disgusted by this traditional practice. Nice, huh? We don't cover our heads and faces OR have the organ removed that gives us sexual pleasure. We are American women-thank GOD.

I can't believe all the haters out there that think all Muslims are terrorists.
Come on people, most Muslims are good people, the terrorists are just a "fringe" group of that religion. Like the KKK is a fringe group of Christianity. White supremacists say they are christian, so do we assume all Christians are members of the KKK? No, of course not. And you can't assume all Muslims are terrorists either..
These people have every right to build their mosque wherever they like. They are NOT the people who attacked us on 9/11!

It's scary how narrow minded and bigoted Americans are becoming. And it's embarrassing how ignorant how they make us look to others around the world.
