In a series of interviews the past two days, Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Rauf significantly raised the stakes.
The self-described “bridge builder” has proven to be anything but, warning America that dire consequences await us if the mosque is not built.
In doing so, he described those who oppose the mosque at Ground Zero as “radicals,” a description one Fox News analyst termed “insulting.” In effect, he is asserting that 71% of Americans must yield or we will inflame the Muslim world.
Brigitte Gabriel participated in a heated debate with a friend of this imam on Sean Hannity’s radio program yesterday. The imam’s friend went so far as to say that the “smoke” caused by this controversy will cause “fire” against America.
You must listen to this firework:
Imam Rauf’s true colors continue to become more visible to the American people. Recall that he said, shortly after 9/11, that America was an “accessory” to the attack.
Now, to argue that America must capitulate or face the consequences, Rauf actually makes the case for ACT! for America’s core missionâ€”rising up against the threat of radical Islam in whatever form that threat takes.
We will stand for freedom and our national security. We will not be intimidated.

He’s focused on Hamas. I am focused on our freedom of religion rights that people like him could chip away compromising democracy for everybody in America. That’s one aspect of the debate about the mosque near ground zero controversy… If I live in America, I care about what’s happening in my backyard, not the crazy stuff going on in the Middle East. Muslims in America practice their faith peacefully while abiding by the law, yet they are demonized by those who don’t approve of Islam as a religion. I thought people in America are free to believe and peacefully practice whatever they want, so why now religion is subject to debate…
