LOWER MANHATTAN — There is a mock Twitter site called @Park51PR that shares an almost identical name to the real @Park51 feed for the proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero, the Daily News reported Friday.

“We are not a shrine to Satan! But Mohammed! And to our martyrs who fought bravely against the infidels on 9/11!” said the fake Twitter feed’s most recent post.

Other provocative comments include, "We will not condemn HAMAS, Hezbollah, or Al Qaeda! They're our brothers war against the infidels!"

The site claims to be run by “former interns of @Park 51, canned after our anti-Jewish/anti-Amish remarks.”

Park 51 has warned people in the past about other sites parodying the controversial project, including @snark51.
