the Cordoba Centre project has been given 300000 dollars by the Kingdom 
Foundation, whose exec head is Muna Abu Sulayman


whose father is, according to the investors.com piece, a major figure in 'the 
history of the Muslim Brotherhood'.  

He is head of the IIT USA, I believe.

all I can find on this is that Adnan Shukrijumah, lived near the mosque till 
his father, who led services there, moved to Florida to set up a mosque there. 
His father acted as translator for Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman.

age of information we could be assured that someone would dig it out, and 
someone has:

 This article appears in the Investors Business Daily.  The Saudi individual 
identified as a Mosque backer has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  e
