Obama adviser: U.S. 'ideal place for renewal of Islam'

Informed readers of WoJ know that Islam is perfect and needs no renewal. The gates of ijihad are shut and therefore Islam cannot be reformed. But Islamic taqiyya merchants have long learned that platitudes like “new” and “hope’nchange” work miracles in America, where people are just waiting to be deceived. “War is deceit”, said Muhammad, profit of Islam.

NOT YOUR FATHER’S AMERICA: Presidential adviser sees  ‘profound transformation’

Religion aide closely linked to imam seeking to build Ground Zero mosque

A religion adviser to President Obama has close ties to the imam who wants to build a 13-story Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero. The two have been documented together discussing America as “the ideal place for a renewal of Islam,” WND has learned.

In February, Obama named a Chicago Muslim, Eboo Patel, to his Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Patel is the founder and executive director of Chicago-based Interfaith Youth Core, which says it promotes pluralism by teaming people of different faiths on service projects.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim leader behind the plan to build the Islamic center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero, wrote the afterword to Patel’s 2006 book, “Building the Interfaith Youth Movement: Beyond Dialogue to Action.”

Patel is listed as one of 15 “Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow” on the website for the American Society for the Advancement of Muslims, or ASAM, which is led by Rauf.

In Patel’s 2007 book, “Saving Each Other, Saving Ourselves,” he recounts discussing with Rauf the future of Islam in the U.S.

Other News from the RoP:

Rauf “understood the vision immediately and suggested that I visit him and his wife, Daisy Khan, at their home the following evening,” Patel recalled.

Khan founded the ASAM with her husband and has aided him in his plans for the mosque near Ground Zero.

“The living room of their apartment on the Upper West Side was set up like a mosque, with prayer rugs stretched from wall to wall,” wrote Patel in his book.

Continued Patel: “I arrived at dusk, prayed the maghrib prayer with Daisy and Imam Feisal and then talked with them about how America, with its unique combination of religious devotion and religious diversity, was the ideal place for a renewal of Islam.”

“In the twentieth century, Catholicism and Judaism underwent profound transformations in America,” Rauf observed. “I think, this century, in America, Islam will do the same.”

Patel boasts of a “critical mass” of Muslims in the U.S.

“Islam is a religion that has always been revitalized by its migration,” he wrote. “America is a nation that has been constantly rejuvenated by immigrants. There is now a critical mass of Muslims in America.”

Patel last March wrote a Huffington Post piece referring to Obama’s former “green jobs” czar Van Jones as a “faith hero.”

“In my last post on Van, I called him an American patriot,” wrote Patel. “That is high praise in my book. But watching Van’s speech at the NAACP, I have another title for him, one that I reserve for the true giants of history. Van Jones is a faith hero.”

Jones resigned in September after it was exposed he founded a communist revolutionary organization and signed a statement that accused the Bush administration of possible involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Jones also called for “resistance” against the U.S.

Jones previously stated his advocacy for green jobs was part of a broader movement to destroy the U.S. capitalist system.

WND reported that one day after the 9/11 attacks, Jones led a vigil that expressed solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans as well as what he called the victims of “U.S. imperialism” around the world.

Rauf, meanwhile, has caused a stir with his proposed $100 million, 13-story Islamic cultural center and mosque near the corner of Park Place and West Broadway.

Rauf sparked controversy earlier this month when he refused during a live radio interview to condemn violent jihad groups as terrorists. Rauf repeatedly refused on the air to affirm the U.S. designation of Hamas as a terrorist organization or call the Muslim Brotherhood extremists.

The Brotherhood openly seeks to spread Islam around the world, while Hamas is committed to Israel’s destruction and is responsible for scores of suicide bombings, shootings and rocket attacks aimed at Jewish civilian population centers.

During the interview, Rauf was also asked who he believes was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks.

“There’s no doubt,” stated Rauf. “The general perception all over the world was it was created by people who were sympathetic to Osama bin Laden. Whether they were part of the killer group or not, these are details that need to be left to the law-enforcement experts.”

Rauf has been on record several times blaming U.S. policies for the Sept. 11 attacks. He has been quoted refusing to admit Muslims carried out the attacks.

Referring to the Sept. 11 attacks, Rauf told CNN, “U.S. policies were an accessory to the crime that happened. We (the U.S.) have been an accessory to a lot of innocent lives dying in the world. Osama bin Laden was made in the USA.”

Madeline Brooks, a reporter who attended a sermon this year by Rauf, quoted the Islamic leader as stating “some people say it was Muslims who attacked on 9/11.”

Rauf’s 2004 book had two different titles, one in English and the second in Arabic. In the U.S., his book was called “What’s right with America is what’s right with Islam.”

The same book, published in Arabic, bore the name “The Call From the WTC Rubble: Islamic Da’wah From the Heart of America Post-9/11.”

  1. Well folks – you voted for this moron and its idiotic advisors!!! I suspect that those who voted for him may have accelerated the next major conflict.

  2. Imam Rauf is a taqiyyah-“master”, like Mr. Aiman Mazyek,
    General Secretary of Central Council of Muslims in Germany
    http://zentralrat.de/2593.php#beauftragte

    TAQIYYAH AT ITS BEST!

    With 1. violent jihad (true Muslims, mujahideen, terrorists)
    & 2 . deception (taqiyyah 3:28, 5:51) from the “moderate” Muslims …

    … Islam spread all over the world!

  3. Its about time the UK decoupled itself from the anti British, anti Western Democracy, antisemitic,anti White, RACIST, Debt Ridden, soon to be THIRD World, pathetically self apologetic, Dictator and Theocratic Dictator KOW TOWING, soon to be Non Nuclear, RACIST Black and MOHAMMEDAN led extreme SOCIALIST Green NAZI REGIME of the USA.

    There are far more important, dynamic, self respecting and powerful countries in the World now China, India and the emerging Iran to name but a few to continue to align ourselves with the fast declining RACIST, Mohammedan, erstwhile Financial Empire building and soon to be bankrupt, fast FAILING “has beens” of the USA.

  4. I spent some time trying to find more information on this Eboo Patel and it became clear to me that all that really matters is that he is muslim & Obama has put yet another muslim in a position of authority. My point being: never trust any of them.

  6. Ahh seems you have a “contents rejection filter” setting that is hyper sensitive and does not allow even the most bland of comments.
