    "At a time when our country has a $1.5 TRILLION deficit, we should be cutting everything possible in sight, right?

    "So why do we have a $770 million program to fix up mosques overseas?

    "Let’s break this down a bit. Why do we have a $770 million program to fix up mosques? Can you imagine a $770 million program to fix up Christian churches (or even a $7.70 program)?

    "Why are we spending $770 million in money we don’t have to fix up mosques in other countries around the world?

    "Where is all that usual “separation of church and state” talk from the Left?

    Well, having a president who seems to bear an inordinate amount of affection for Islam aside, I think former Muslim Nonie Darwish who was interviewed in this WSBTV video nails it pretty good:

    America is not showing its power. It’s showing appeasement. They’re laughing all the way to the bank.

    Our tax dollars are also paying for internet access and computer equipment at many of these mosques. Wonderful, we’re making it easier for radical Muslims to network.

    President Obama is having a hard time finding anything in our government to cut? I have a suggestion for where he can start.

    Interesting, where is the $770 million that is being spent on mosques? Following the link from your biased link:

    USAID Telling Our Story: Egypt - Rescuing 1000-Year-Old Mosque from Decay


    $2.3 million so people living in the area can get healthier groundwater. Not quite $770 million for Mosques.

    It's not like it's the point of USAID or anything:

    We wont see any money going to rebuilt churches


    CAIRO, March 9 (Reuters) - Thirteen people were killed in violence between Egyptian Christians and Muslims, the health ministry said on Wednesday, as sectarian tensions that appeared to evaporate in the country's revolution resurfaced.

    The health ministry said 140 people were wounded, state media reported.

    The violence in Cairo on Tuesday night was the worst outbreak of sectarian strife since President Hosni Mubarak was swept from power on Feb. 11 by a mass uprising characterised by solidarity between Christians and Muslims.

    It was not immediately clear how many of the dead were Christian or Muslim. The violence erupted following a protest by Christians over an arson attack on a church in Helwan south of Cairo.

    There may be money it is unlikely that it will ever go to rebuilding churches

    Egypt: Christians call for repeal of dhimmi law restricting church construction
    Islamic law (Sharia) forbids dhimmis to build new houses of worship or repair old ones. Egypt is ostensibly an Arab Republic, not an Islamic Republic, but still has an old Sharia-inspired law on the books that is used to stymie church construction — belying the indignant claims of Islamic spokesmen in the West that dhimmitude is a long-forgotten relic of the past, never to be revived. “Collapsing Churches Prompt Protests in Egypt For New Law on Church Construction,” by Mary Abdelmassih for AINA, January 22 (thanks to all who sent this in):
