Moderate Prison Imam Can't Call Hamas a Terrorist Organization, “Islam Forbids Terrorism…”

Meet Imam Dawoud Kringle of the New York State prison system, who calls all you infidels ‘ignorant Islamophobes’ because you don’t  understand the “spiritual principles of Islam…”

“Islam forbids terrorism…”

Andy McCarthy: “What We Call Terrorism, They Don’t”

Another “moderate” imam and supporter of Ground Zero mosque won’t condemn Hamas

Big surprise. “Another ‘Moderate’ GZ Mosque Supporter Can’t Bring Himself to Call Hamas a Terrorist Organization,” by the peerless Andrew C. McCarthy at National Review, August 25/Jihad Watch

Last night, I was on David Asman’s Fox Business Channel show, Scoreboard, debating Imam Dawoud Kringle of the New York State prison system, a GZ mosque supporter. Imam Kringle, who seems like a nice enough fellow, reeled off the usual talking points about how Islam forbids terrorism and, therefore, if someone commits an act of terrorism that act is, by definition, un-Islamic.Then came the moment of truth: the very simple question, “Is Hamas a terrorist organization?” Have a look at the YouTube clip below. Like his friend Imam Feisal Rauf, Imam Kringle won’t answer the question. I pressed him, pointing out that it is a very simple question. And it is: Quite apart from the fact that Hamas is formally designated as a terrorist organization under U.S. law, Hamas’s own charter makes abundantly clear — indeed, wears like a badge of honor — that Hamas exists solely for the purpose of driving Israel out of Palestine by violent jihad. Yet the imam cannot bring himself to say Hamas is a terrorist organization….

McCarthy: Inventing moderate Islam

In “Inventing Moderate Islam” at National Review, August 24, Andrew McCarthy skewers the general tendency to dismiss as “Islamophobia” statements by non-Muslim analysts that are taken for granted as true when they’re made by Muslim leaders:

‘Secularism can never enjoy a general acceptance in an Islamic society.” The writer was not one of those sulfurous Islamophobes decried by CAIR and the professional Left. Quite the opposite: It was Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual guide and a favorite of the Saudi royal family. He made this assertion in his book, How the Imported Solutions Disastrously Affected Our Ummah, an excerpt of which was published by the Saudi Gazette just a couple of months ago.This was Qaradawi the “progressive” Muslim intellectual, much loved by Georgetown University’s burgeoning Islamic-studies programs. Like Harvard, Georgetown has been purchased into submission by tens of millions of Saudi petrodollars. In its resulting ardor to put Americans at ease about Islam, the university somehow manages to look beyond Qaradawi’s fatwas calling for the killing of American troops in Iraq and for suicide bombings in Israel. Qaradawi, they tell us, is a “moderate.” In fact, as Robert Spencer quips, if you were to say Islam and secularism cannot co-exist, John Esposito, Georgetown’s apologist-in-chief, would call you an Islamophobe; but when Qaradawi says it, no problem — according to Esposito, he’s a “reformist.”

And he’s not just any reformist. Another Qaradawi fan, Feisal Rauf, the similarly “moderate” imam behind the Ground Zero mosque project, tells us Qaradawi is also “the most well-known legal authority in the whole Muslim world today.”…

  1. There are no such people as moderate muslims. Their outward facade belies the true beliefs and intentions of their hearts. They are all a bunch of blood thirsty savages which will be witnessed in the not too distant future.

  2. Sir,

    This is but one item to assist in understanding the Root of Islam’s Demonic Dogma. You are at the Cusp of making LINCOLN like decisions to save your country and influence the World, in defence of all Democracies.
    An analogy: To keep Rats out of a living room, the rest of the house must be purged of these destructive pests.



    Mohammed’s words translated.

    When asked about his marriage to Aisha, which he betrothed in her sixth year, also visited her alone on occasion, and fully consummated sexually, in her ninth year.
    “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby breast fed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”

    This is but one major reason, why Islam must be stopped in its infiltration of our Humane and Spiritual Society.
    True Muslims consider Mohammed the MOST HONOURABLE of all MEN, and see nothing wrong in EMULATING his ACTIVITIES.
    Since Islam upholds this type of dogma, not one mosque should be allowed in any self respecting society.

  3. The vid.
    He said thhe GZ mosque would help people discover the Islamic side of spirituality.
    The only one who is” ignorant of Islamic spirituality” is Dawoud Kringle.
    Methinks this Prison Imam does not know his Qur’an, Hadith or Sira.
    I highly recommend that Dawoud read Prophet of Doom
    Seems like a nice guy but “Kris Kringle” of Islam he is not.
