Question: Many of the political Jihadist Islamic movements are talking about an Islamic Caliphate based on the prophet’s approach. Can we accomplish this today?
Abdul Rauf: The challenge I was referring to is this; how do we call for the principles and standards that the prophet (peace be upon him) used to build the Islamic state in Medina. The challenge we have today is how do we accomplish this while keeping the prophet’s methodology in our current changing times. This challenge was an issue that the scholars and Caliphs had to face throughout the Islamic history, which resulted in the creation of several Islamic schools of thought with multiple views that are viewed equally.
A massive fifteen-story mosque and Islamic Center going up in what was once the shadow of the World Trade Center claims to offer “the opposite statement to what happened on 9/11.” The Center organizers, the America Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), have worked hard in the media to portray themselves as Islamic moderates working for peace on the exact spot where their belligerent coreligionists perpetrated murder and mayhem in the name of their religion. But the words and deeds of the leader of the effort, the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, suggests a more ominous reality: Abdul Rauf is a master of deceptive, Orwellian use of language, manifesting a deep contempt for non-Muslims and full accord with the supremacist goals of the 9/11 hijackers.More>>>
In short, the Islamo-propagandists talk out of two sides of their mouths. The same Abdul Rauf who espoused the spread of Sharia law on Arabic websites Â said the opposite in the pages of the Daily News.Â He is the man New York City authorities are about to allow to build a mosque on Ground Zero.
“Where are the ‘moderate’ Muslims?” Well, here they are. Let’s not let the fears of a handful of people become the resistance to an entire community.
The resistance to building the Cordoba House demonstrates the need for such a centre, which can educate and inform Americans about Islam and show that Muslims are partners in building a prosperous and peaceful America, says Afridi. (It turns out Mehnaz is a well trained Islamo-agit-prop)
As a little history lesson to folks out there, Islam has a long and bloody past of building their mosques over the holy places of other religions as a symbol of the Muslim religions dominance over another. Â Ayasofya Mosque was built in the former Hagia Sophia basilica in Istanbul… Al-Aqsa Mosque was built on the top of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem… Umayyad Mosque was built in Damascus right on top of where the Church of St. John the Baptist once stood. Â I think you get the picture. These are just a few examples, there are thousands more. Islam is not just replacement theory; it is eradicating reality along with everything that came before it and everything that stands in its way.
The negative effect of Islam itself on IQ I speficied elsewhere with reference to a French scholar:
“The deadening influence of Islam is well demonstrated by the way in which the Musulman comports himself at different stages of his life. In his early childhood, when the religion has not as yet impregnated his brain, he shows a very lively intelligence and remarkably open mind, accessible to ideas of every kind; but, in proportion as he grows up, and as, through the system of his education, Islam lays hold of him and envelops him, his brain seems to shut up, his judgment to become atrophied, and his intelligence to be stricken by paralysis and irremediable degeneration.”
(Quoted from “Islam and the Psychology of the Musulman”, authored by Andre Servier, 1923).
