Abdul Rauf’s Da'awa from the World Trade Center Rubble

Andrew McCarthy

Da’awa, whether done from the rubble of the World Trade Center or elsewhere, is the missionary work by which Islam is spread. As explained in my recent book, The Grand Jihad, dawa is proselytism, but not involving only spiritual elements — for Islam is not merely a religion, and spiritual elements are just a small part of its doctrine. In truth, Islam is a comprehensive political, social, and economic system with its own authoritarian legal framework, sharia, which aspires to govern all aspects of life. Read it all/Free Republic

Ali Sina:

When in 2007, Rauf published his book in the Muslims world, he did not call it What is Right with America is What is Right with Islam. He called it A Call to Prayer from the WTC rubbles: Islamic Da’wa from the Heart of America Post 9/11.

”Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man. Islam doesn’t look for a nation to be in a better condition than another nation. Islam doesn’t care about the land or who owns the land. The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy. In order to fulfil that goal, Islam can use every power available every way it can be used to bring worldwide revolution. This is Jihad.”

Glenn Beck exposes radical connections of Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf

Thanks to  THERIGHTSCOOP we have a beautiful “connecting the dots” video:

Beck, as only he can do, puts the ‘peaceful’ and ‘tolerant’ Imam on his chalkboard and shows his radical connections.


Gateway Pundit:

Democrats were frustrated today with Hussein Obama’s radical stance on the Ground Zero Mosque. Obama supports a mosque at Ground Zero along with only 20% of voters. A vast majority of Americans do not want a victory mosque built near the former World Trade buildings.  The Politico reported…

President Hussein Obama on Friday forcefully endorsed building a mosque near ground zero, saying the country’s founding principles demanded no less.

He waited until Ramadan to make his announcement that until this point they had left to be a ‘local issue’. The Muslim POTUS Obama is no longer hiding it. Just what does it take for people  to wake up and smell the lying Muslim that we have for a President.

… and then he backflipped:    Under Fire, Obama “Clarifies” Support for Ground Zero Mosque: didn’t mean the mosque on Ground Zero……

Gingrich: “There is nothing surprising in the president’s continued pandering to radical Islam”

Fallout. “3 Republicans Criticize Obama’s Endorsement of Mosque,” by Edward Wyatt in the New York Times, August 14

[…] John Boehner, the Ohio Republican who is the House minority leader, said: “The decision to build this mosque so close to the site of ground zero is deeply troubling, as is the president’s decision to endorse it.””The American people certainly don’t support it,” Mr. Boehner said.

Representative Peter King, a New York Republican, said that while the Muslim community has the right to build the mosque, doing so needlessly offends too many people.

“President Obama is wrong,” Mr. King said. “It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community to build a mosque in the shadow of ground zero. While the Muslim community has the right to build the mosque they are abusing that right by needlessly offending so many people who have suffered so much. The right and moral thing for President Obama to have done was to urge Muslim leaders to respect the families of those who died and move their mosque away from Ground Zero. Unfortunately the president caved into political correctness.”

Newt Gingrich, the former House Speaker, also condemned the proposed mosque and the President’s comments.

“There is nothing surprising in the president’s continued pandering to radical Islam,” he said. “What he said last night is untrue and in accurate. The fact is this is not about religious liberty.”

Mr. Gingrich said the proposed mosque would be a symbol of Muslim “triumphalism” and that building the mosque near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks “would be like putting a Nazi sign next to the Holocaust Museum.”

“It’s profoundly and terribly wrong,” he said.

Has Gingrich been reading Jihad Watch?

  1. “The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy.”

    Up to a point – there are things that islam cannot fight and destroy.

    Israel is one. Israel’s “man child” is another:

    “And she was delivered of a son, a man child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne.” (Revelation 12:5)

    Nothing the sonless allah can do about it.

  2. Obama’s lack of leadership about the mosque at ground zero is appalling. And the muslim insistence that it go there is another attack on the fabric of America. Tell me they are not on jihad. The president could have easily and quietly worked a deal for the mosque to go elsewhere or for the government to come in and buy that property. It’s not rocket science. It’s what he does everyday on the items that promote his agenda.

  3. At the time of 9/11, I wrote that 9/11, far from being a disaster for Islam, would turn out to be a publicity coup for it. So it turned out.
    We are now in a similar situation. If the GZM proponents win their case, and build the mosque, it would be seen in the wider Islamic world, that allah had yet again granted a tremendous victory to Muslims. If OTH, the said mosque has to shift its location, or is cancelled altogether, then CAIR and all the other Islamic groups will be crying “foul”, and seeking sympathy – Islam is being victimized.

    Either way, this crisis is going to be milked for all it’s got.

    The real aim of the controversy though, like 9/11 itself, is to keep Islam right up there on the national and international agenda, i.e., making Islam pre-eminent, and the focus for all attention. Obama, willingly or unwittingly, has made this objective a reality, turning a NY city issue to an international one.

    The more this controversy rages and polarises the America people, the greater a publicity disaster for the West this, and great propaganda boost for Islam.

    It would appear that we are going to lose this battle either way. Not necessarily so. What some of the opponents have to do, is to seize this opportunity to tell the truth about Islam. That is, use the propaganda opportunity that has been created by Islamists to defeat their real purpose, of publicising for Islam – not just stop it but turn it against Islam. If some of the opponents can do this, the GZM proponents will themselves halt the controversy.

    Let us hope that Fox will give it publicity.Thats all we can hope for.

    The GMZ controversy is not about the GMZ mosque, or even the triumphalist proclamation of Islam on the site of its first North American victory, but an opportunity for keeping Islam preeminent in the public eye. That is always the objective for all Muslims, always.

    Obama may backtrack now, but that is not the point. He has succeeded in raising the profile of Islam to the international plane, which was never there in the first place. He can now withdraw his comments, as his main purpose has been accomplished.
    The best way forward is to seize the opportunity that the GMZ proponents have created to raise Islam, and use it to expose the reality of Islam. As they say, “never let a crisis go to waste”.

    We need to also use this opportunity, not just to oppose the GMZ, but to use it to negate the real objective of Islam.
