New York, Aug.28 (ANI): The developer of the proposed controversial "Ground Zero Mosque," has said that he will not accept funds from Iran, the Hamas, or any other organisation projecting "un-American values".

"We will not take money from Iran. We will not take money from Hamas," Sharif El-Gamal, told CBS News.

"The money is going to be coming from people that want to get involved in the project, and, I think, it's gonna come from people from all walks of life," El-Gamal added.

El-Gamal kicked off a fundraising effort for the site Friday with an announcement that he had secured 10,000 dollars in donations from a Muslim congregation for the 100 million dollar project. (ANI)
