Sharif El-Gamal is the chairman and chief executive of the real estate investment firm Soho Properties. The firm is known for attempting to develop Park51, a community center and Islamic prayer space located two blocks from ground zero. The project has been dramatically scaled back from preliminary plans. Opponents incorrectly dubbed it Ground Zero Mosque and said it did not belong so close to the site of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks, which were perpetrated by extremist Muslims. A national debate on the issue ensued.

El-Gamal was born in 1973 in Brooklyn, to an Egyptian Muslim father and a Polish Catholic mother. He spent the latter part of his childhood in Liberia and Egypt with his father, after his mother died when he was 9 years old.
