Imam Rauf Still Dreaming About Ground Zero Victory Mosque

NY Imam Still Holds to Mosque Dream

Abdul-Rauf, who chairs the Cordoba Initiative, an organization working to foster ties between the Muslim world and the West, also believes that Muslims have a responsibility of clearing misconceptions about their faith in US community.

“Meet non-Muslims, explain to non-Muslims what our faith is all about. Be friendly. Dress in an American way. Don’t do things that, even if allowable, are likely to arouse hostility,” he said, addressing the Muslim community.

“The Prophet (Muhammad), for example, at the very beginning of his mission, did not perform the noon and afternoon prayers in a loud voice because this would offend the sensitivities of the people against him in Makkah.”   (you know the drill: War is Deception)

Stop Imam Rauf’s Insult to America!

Apparently, Islamic Supremacism trumps Christianity at Ground Zero. (Atlas Shrugs)

‘Jesus in Islam’ da’awa frenzy

Preston Muslim Forum is hosting a series of events called ‘Unveiling Islam – beyond prejudice, myth and stereotype’ starting at Christ Church, Victoria Road, Fulwood, on Thursday, July 7 at 7pm.

“Not all Muslims are ordered to kill Jews”

Canadian Broadcast Standards Council uses our enemies’ ‘not all…’ rhetorical trick to punish host who said Koran orders Muslims to kill Jews by Kathy Shaidle

Of course, the Koran doesn’t bother with all that “not all…” nonsense, but we dhimmis are expected to.

“Not all…” is a relatively new rhetorical “rule”.

Paul Revere did not feel obliged to shout “some of the British are coming.”

If I say “Germans make good cars,” even the stupidest, craziest individual knows I don’t believe that allGerman citizens are employed in the automotive industry.

Yet all because of belligerent Muslims and their braindead dupes, we are suddenly supposed to say “not all Muslims.” (think the PC crowd can sort the killers out for us?)

I refuse to acquiesce to this made up rule. Because once we start playing by their rules, they win. This is appeasement disguised as “civility.”

Glenn Beck Family Harassed

As Hopey Change progresses, America is becoming “fundamentally transformed” into a place where prominent conservatives can’t take their family out in public for fear of being assailed by the liberal mob — as Glenn Beck learned last night at NYC’s Bryant Park:  America Under the Liberal Mob (Moonbattery)

Far Left Goons Harass Glenn Beck Family at Outdoor Concert– The commenters on Gawker are as hateful as the leftists who harassed his family at the park.

One thought on “Imam Rauf Still Dreaming About Ground Zero Victory Mosque”

  1. Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf: “If Christians were to regard Muslims as Unitarians with an Arabic liturgy,” many of America’s problems with Muslim world would be solved

    Abdul Rauf is so full of shiite you start to think he’s made of it. But Weigel is worse in his stupidity:

    Hardcore Leftist dhimmi pseudo-journalist David Weigel here casts the Islamic supremacist Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf as a victim, lamenting that Rauf “got a brutal reminder of what happens when idealism meets religion and politics” and “went through the ringer” over the Ground Zero Mosque initiative. Meanwhile, the pitiable victim is so marginalized that his event in Colorado was attended by Paul Bremer, the former head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq — another influential figure who is clueless about the global jihad and Islamic supremacism.

    True to form, Weigel doesn’t tell his unthinking Leftist marks at Slate what Pamela Geller explains here:

    It is clear that Rauf and other mosque leaders are not as moderate as they claim to be. Rauf has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood…The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated, according to a captured internal document, to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.” Rauf’s book What’s Right with Islam says on the copyright page that “this edition was made possible through a joint effort of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and the office of Interfaith and Community Alliance of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Funding for this project was provided by IIIT.” Both IIIT and ISNA are Muslim Brotherhood fronts, and ISNA was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case.
    Rauf refused to condemn Hamas until the public outcry became too great for him to ignore. He was a prominent member of the Perdana organization, which bankrolled the jihad flotilla sent against Israel last year, on which the “peaceful” passengers were chanting a genocidal and antisemitic Islamic jihad chant.

    Also, Rauf has said that “the US and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end.” He has claimed that “Western active involvement in shaping the internal affairs of Islamic societies have contributed to the creation of terrorism done in the name of Islam.” In other words, defending ourselves against jihad terrorism just creates jihad terrorism, so we should stop defending ourselves.

    Rauf has carried his blame game even farther, claiming: “We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al Qaida has on its hands of innocent non Muslims.” He even said on 60 Minutes shortly after 9/11 that Osama bin Laden was “made in the USA.”

    The Arabic translation of Rauf’s book What’s Right with Islam is disturbingly entitled A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of Post-9/11 America. This indicates that he has planned for years to spread Islam and Sharia from the site of the 9/11 attacks — belying his more recent claims that he intends the mosque to be a center for reconciliation and peace.

    Geller adds: “In his book, Rauf supports and justifies Sharia law, and calls for restrictions on free speech in America. He has written another book that has gotten little notice: Islam: A Sacred Law—What Every Muslim Should Know About Sharia. In it he explains why God’s law is superior to manmade law, or that is, why Sharia is better than democracy.”

    Geller also notes that Rauf “snagged more than $2 million in public financing to renovate low-income apartments” that he owned in New Jersey, but never made the renovations. Where is that money?

    He has also been completely dishonest about the mosque project itself. Now it is a community center nowhere near Ground Zero, but when it was initially announced Rauf was forthright, saying: “New York is the capital of the world, and this location close to 9/11 is iconic.” That statement has now been scrubbed from the online version of the New York Times article in which it initially appeared.

    Rauf even threatened America over this project, saying that if the mosque were not built, “if we don’t do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world….If we don’t handle this crisis correctly, it could become something very dangerous indeed.”

    But to Dave Weigel, he is a poor victim. Pity poor Rauf! And pity even more the Slate readers who fall for this nonsense.

    “Park51, Reconsidered,” by David Weigel in Slate, June 28:

    ASPEN, Col. — I stopped by a luncheon here to listen to a guest who, since the last Ideas fest, got a brutal reminder of what happens when idealism meets religion and politics. He was Feisel Abdul Rauf, the man behind the Cordoba Initiative, who went through the ringer in 2010 when his hopes to build a Muslim community center near Ground Zero gave us the “Ground Zero mega-mosque” frenzy. (Rauf cheekily used that term to refer to the controversy.)
    “Wherever I go in the Muslim world,” he said, “it’s the first question people want to ask me.” In the Arab world, he said, people were dazzled by the story. “When President Obama gave speech on Ramadan, the banner headline in the Egyptian Gazette was” Obama supports GZ Mosque. The narrative, in some important ways, gave [America] a boost.”

    That word, “narrative,” seemed to come up in Rauf’s every other sentence. Many of America’s problems with the Muslim world could be solved with a narrative shift. “if Christians were to regard Muslims as Unitarians with an Arabic liturgy,” he said, quoting himself tongue-in-cheekly, “perhaps we’d get over some of this.” And “we need films to show Muslims in a positive light. I’ve commissioned three scripts.”…

    Maybe he could commission a few Unitarians to blow themselves up in crowds of non-Unitarians; that would do a world of good to help the Christians that Rauf has in mind start equate Muslims with Unitarians.
