We wrote back in July about State Senator David Storobin’s attempts to get the city to revisit the issue of the Islamic mosque and community center at 2812 Voorhies Avenue, hoping they’d squash the project. Some time between then and now, the mayor’s office wrote back to Storobin, but his answer must have been unsatisfactory to the local pol: Storobin sent another letter, again pushing the issue.

Storobin’s original letter focused largely on building and zoning issues related to the project, but closed with a suggestion that the mosque’s backers, the Muslim American Society, has ties to radical organizations.

A request for a copy of Bloomberg’s letter to Storobin did not receive a response, but something in it must have made Storobin ditch all that language about zoning, and focus solely on those alleged ties and the “well-being of my constituents.”
