Imam Rauf: "a call to prayer from the world trade center rubble: islamic dawa from the heart of america, post 9/11…"

The Ping Pong POTUS:

‘Courageous’ Obama Backtracks in Just 24 Hours… only to  backtrack again: you see,  “his defense of the right to build a mosque does not mean he supports the project.” In other words, he was for it before he was against it, but being a Muslim he is actually for it, but saying so is not good for the Islamic cause, so lets just hide behind the constitution while the shoe fits, shall we…?

Imam Rauf: “a call to prayer from the world trade rubble: islamic dawa from the heart of america, post 9/11.”

Rich Lowry, NRO

Feisal Abdul Rauf, the project’s imam, wrote a book called What’s Right with Islam Is What’s Right with America. But as former prosecutor Andy McCarthy points out, it was published in Malaysia under the more pungent title A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of America Post-9/11 (dawa is Islamic proselytism). A noncommercial edition was published by two organizations that have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and promote Hamas.

Rauf himself won’t condemn the Palestinian terror group. Asked about Hamas in a recent radio interview, he said, “Terrorism is a very complex question,” the stock answer of anyone excusing terrorism. “I am a peace builder,” he explained — so long as peace-building doesn’t require saying a discouraging word about the Palestinian murderers of innocent Jews. (I hasten to add that “peace’ in Islam has a very different meaning to what it means to us/ed)

Not to worry:

“The Mosque will be an Islamic YMCA,” sez Ground Zero imam, “it will only be a tiny mosque”

Village Mohammedans

NEW YORK – When Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf decided to build a Muslim cultural center in lower Manhattan, the model he chose couldn’t have been more mainstream American — the Young Men’s Christian Association chapters found in cities across the United States.

The planned building will have a prayer room for Muslims, he said, but it would only be a small part of the 13-story complex.  Read more at weaselzippers

Sure. Its no longer  just a mosque. It became a “community centre” as soon as the the first opposition to it was voiced.   Just like the “tiny minority of extremists” that keep plaguing us. Just like those  tiny “firecrackers” Hamas shoots into Israel. Just like the 16.000 terrorist attacks since 9/11 that we should ignore because they are all committed by misunderstanders of Islam.

If in trouble; minimize it. Belittle it, belittle your opponents, play victim,  obfuscate, prevaricate, lie, deny, twist the facts and stay on course. Islam, only Islam matters. Allah is with those who stay the course…..

His endorsement of the Ground Zero mosque is another case of Obama standing “with the Muslims” and against Americans of all other faiths

Islam Means the End of Religious Freedom

At an Iftar dinner in the White House, Hussein Obama proclaimed that he supports the building of the Ground Zero mosque as part of his “unshakable commitment to religious freedom”. Which of course sounds very noble and good, until you ask a single question, Where is the religious freedom in the Muslim world?  (Daniel Greenfield has the story)

  1. Rauf explains how “radicalization” happens, insulting Muslims in the process by implying they have no self control

    This television appearance (thanks to JW) is not the first time Rauf has turned the prospect of Muslim rage into a veiled threat against those who speak critically of Islam or behavior by Muslims, and implied that Muslims cannot control themselves in response.
    Note how, in his remarks below, “radicalized” Muslims are only reactors to provocations. It is automatic, and it is always the West’s fault. Essentially, his argument depends on the idea of a one-way, almost gravitational pull by which all supposed “extremism” swirls — “spirals,” he says — into what he ultimately portrays as an insensible hive of easily enraged drones who have no free will, and no self-restraint to keep from escalating the situation from words to physical violence.

    It’s not Islam… it’s The Spiral.

    In his attempts to defend Islam, he finds it necessary to insult the intelligence of his co-religionists. Where’s the outrage about that? A transcription of his comments on radicalization follows below.

    (1:16) “It’s a cycle. The radicals fuel each other and feed on each other. So when something happens like this, it arouses hostility among the other, the non-Muslim community. You have a Christ[ian]- evangelical leader, for example who says Islam is an evil religion. That becomes the banner headline in the Muslim world, both domestically, and more important, overseas. It arouses hostility there. The Danish cartoon — the Danish paper commissions cartoons. It creates hostility in the Muslim world. People in the West begin to say, oh, look, there’s no freedom of speech, and you create this cycle, this spiral. It is this spiral that we have to stop.
    A call to curtail free speech:

    “If you really want to understand how, what creates radicalization, is the radical extremist discourse that comes from all sides. And this is what we have to stop.”
    (2:30) “Terrorism in all its stripes, and what fuels Islamic terrorism is extremism and terrorism and radical ideologies from all sides.”
    “Extremism and terrorism and radical ideologies,” oh my!

    Martin Bashir, to his credit, appears to be having none of it.
