Rauf was just in the Washington Post a few weeks ago saying that no Muslims, none, wanted to bring Sharia here. But he behaves differently in other contexts.
Meanwhile, a great deal about the U.S. Muslim Engagement here is not new: Pamela Geller has it inÂ The Post-American Presidency, which Robert Spencer cowrote.
“Obama’s faith adviser helped craft ‘perfect Islamic state’: Shariah project scrubbed from Internet, sought to ‘implement’ Muslim caliphate,” by Aaron Klein forWorldNetDaily, April 17 (thanks to JW):
Shariah project scrubbed from Internet, sought to ‘implement’ Muslim caliphate.
Dalia Mogahed, appointed to President Obama’s faith advisory council, was a partner in an Islamic project whose stated goal was to “define, interpret and implement the concept of the Islamic State in modern times,” WND has learned.
The project was founded and directed by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim cleric behind the proposed 13-story, $100 million Islamic cultural center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero in New York City.
Besides her role on the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Mogahed is also on the advisory council of the Department of Homeland Security. She testified before the Senate on engagement with the Muslim community.
Together with Rauf, Mogahed was a leading voice in the Leadership Group on U.S.-Muslim Engagement, which issued a 153-page recommendation paper, obtained and reviewed by WND, that calls for dialogue with Hamas.
WND has learned that Mogahed and the Gallup survey provided key data for Rauf’s “Shariah Index Project ,” which sought, according to its own mission, to “define, interpret and implement the concept of the Islamic State in modern times.”
President Obama may have never met a “czar” he didn’t like and he’s not about to bid farewell to any of them now, despite a budget deal he struck with Republican leaders last week that eliminated four of these positions.
