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 â€” 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
When in 2007, Rauf published his book in the Muslims world, he did not call itÂ What is Right with America is What is Right with Islam. He called itÂ 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.”

Thanks to Â THERIGHTSCOOP we have a beautifulÂ “connecting the dots” video:
Beck, as only he can do, puts the ‘peaceful’ and ‘tolerant’ Imam on his chalkboard and shows his radical connections.
Democrats were frustrated today with Hussein Obama’s radical stance on the Ground Zero Mosque. Obama supports a mosque at Ground Zero along with onlyÂ 20% of voters. A vast majority of Americans do not want a victory mosque built near the former World Trade buildings. Â 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 Â to wake up and smell the lying Muslim that we have for a President.
… and then he backflipped: Â Â Under Fire, Obama “Clarifies” Support for Ground Zero Mosque: didn’t mean the mosque on Ground Zero……
Fallout. “3 Republicans Criticize Obama’s Endorsement of Mosque,” by Edward Wyatt in theÂ 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?
