Obama’s State Department Bankrolls Ground Zero Imam Rauf’s Middle East Fundraising Tour: “US Muslim Engagement”
Yesterday, we learned that the dishonest Imam Rauf was in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Qatar for Ground Zero mosque moneyÂ here. He was not accompanied byÂ his waiter. Today we learn that he was traveling on your dime.
Rauf’s trip to Muslim countries that are rife with jihad, jiyza and delusions of a global Islamic state was disturbing enough on its face, but worse stillÂ is that fact that the feds are financing his trip. Terror-tied Rauf is comfortably ensconced in the bosom of the Obama State DepartmentÂ (check this out). The New York Post elaborates:
The imam behind a plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero is set to depart on a multi-country jaunt to the Middle East funded by theÂ State Department — raising concerns that taxpayers may be helping him with the controversial project’s $100 million fund-raising goal.
Feisal Abdul Rauf is taking the publicly funded trip to foster “greater understanding” about Islam and Muslim communities in the United States, the State Department confirmed yesterday.
“He is a distinguished Muslim cleric,” said State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, when asked about the journey, reportedly to include stops in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Qatar.
What exactly defines a “distinguished Muslim cleric?” Rauf helpedÂ finance terrorists in Turkey, blames theÂ US and the West for Islamic terrorism, declares Islamic terrorism was caused byÂ “humiliating” and “ignoring” Muslim World, supports Hamas, expouses “religious dialogue” in the English press but tells the Arabic press,”I don’t believe in religious dialogue”..…and so on.
“I think we are in the process of arranging for him to travel as part of this program, and it is to foster a greater understanding about the region around the world among Muslim-majority communities,” P.J. Crowley added.
Crowley said no fund-raising for the mosque and cultural center during the trip would be permitted. “That would not be something he could do as part of our program,” he said.
Abdul Rauf said funds for the center will come from Muslims and members of his congregation.
But a London-based Arabic-language newspaper that interviewed Abdul Rauf reported that he says he also will collect money from Muslim and Arab nations around the world — raising the possibility his goodwill mission could help him build contacts in oil-rich states.
This is all part of a much larger plan that subjugates the US to Islamic sharia.
The document is deeply informed by the objectives of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC). The OIC is made up of 57 Muslim-majority nations. Because of Saudi Arabia and its proxies, the Muslim Brotherhood has become the most powerful force in the Conference. The US Muslim Engagement is the charter forÂ ourÂ dhimmitude. It’s the basis forÂ John Kerry’s hearing taqiyya last year, which resulted inÂ yesterday’s announced legislation by Kerry, to bring Muslim workers to America. It is a sweeping campaign by operatives likeÂ Fareed Zakaria, aided by his propaganda on how we have to accept Islamic governments and shariah.
A communiquÃ© issued after a summit in Mecca declared:
“The Conference underlined the need to collectively endeavor to reflect the noble Islamic values, counter Islamophobia, defamation of Islam and its values and desecration of Islamic holy sites, and to effectively coordinate with States as well as regional and international institutions and organizations to urge them to criminalize this phenomenon as a form of racism.”
Underwritten largely by George Soros’ and other left-wing foundations, Changing Course seems to reflect predominantly the recommendations of groups the government has established are Muslim Brotherhood fronts, such as the Islamic Society of North America and the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Both are represented in the Engagement Project’s “Leadership Group.” Accordingly, its book calls for:
