Walid Shrugs It Off (NYT) “I have been associated with this mosque in New York, but frankly speaking, I have nothing to do with it,” he said in an interview. “I’m not for putting that mosque there.”
Sez the guy who tried to give NY mayor Rudolph Giuliani a ten-million dollar cheque on the ruins of Â the World Trade Centre, if only he would denounce Israel and “America’s policies in the ME’. (Continued below the fold…)
Ground Zero Muslim center may get public financing
(Reuters) – The Muslim center planned near the site of the World Trade Center attack could qualify for tax-free financing, a spokesman for City Comptroller John Liu said on Friday, and Liu is willing to consider approving the public subsidy.
What a surprise: the group dedicated in its own words to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within” has connections to the “moderate” Ground Zero mosque. “Mosque’s Saudi Patron,” fromÂ Investor’s Business Daily, August 26/JW
“Steve Emerson has unearthed 13 hours of audio tape of Imam Rauf. Emerson and his team of investigators has spent the past four weeks going through the newly found material. Rauf is a “radical extremist cleric who cloaks himself in sheep’s clothing.”
Among the shocking revelations Emerson’s team will reveal next week â€” they found Rauf:
Defending wahhabism â€“ a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia
Calling for the elimination of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State.
Defending Bin Laden’s violence
Demonstrating that there is a lot more to this man than merely a cleric.
The American public now sees the “deception perpetrated by all these Islamic groups that claim they are against violence and terrorism and insist that their rights be respected but in reality are fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood.””
How does the far left survive in this country? They areÂ so hateful, so harmful to the nation, it is amazing they have any platform at all. If you oppose gay marriage, you’re a homophobe. If you want a secure Southern border, you are anti-Hispanic. And now, if you think building a mosque two blocks away from Ground Zero is inappropriate, you are intolerant, an anti-Muslim bigot.
Charles Krauthammer slammed Speaker Pelosi today onÂ Special Report for her outrageous comments on the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. Pelosi wants to investigate those who oppose the mosque. Krauthammer called her comments “pure lunacy.”
(Actually, it was his wife, the equally deceitful and duplicious Daisy Khan, who said that…)
Ed Koch sounds a bit senile and misses the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf & the Muslim Brotherhood ‘Born in Kuwait in 1948, Feisal Abdul Rauf is the Imam of Masjid al-Farah, aÂ New York CityÂ mosque. He holds aÂ bachelor’s degreeÂ in physics from Columbia University. His father was the late Muhammad Abdul Rauf (1917-2004).’ http://thewestislamandsharia.blogspot.com/2010/08/imam-feisal-abdul-rauf.html from above link his father..
‘Dr. Muhammad Abdul Rauf (1917-2004), was an Egyptian contemporary of Hassan al-Banna, founder ofÂ the MuslimÂ Brotherhood. He was a professor at Al-Azhar University until 1948; in 1965 he moved toÂ New York, where he purchased â€“ with $1.3 million in funding from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Libya â€“ a plot ofÂ Manhattan real estateÂ to serve as a site for a large Islamic Cultural Center (ICC) whose construction was bankrolled by sources in 46 Islamic nations — all members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Construction of the ICC did not begin until 1984. Alyssa Lappen explains the reason for that long delay: “[Muhammad] Rauf withheld information on the Islamic donors until 1984. Only after wrangling for permits for 20 years did Rauf begin construction â€” at that point, funding sources no longer mattered as construction became a fait accompli.”
Imagine the Mayor of New York saying such a thing after downtown New York was gutted and thousands were murdered by folks backed aggressively by money trails mostly from Saudi Arabia!Â Then there is that small detail that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis themselves.Â You can read more of Bloomberg’s enlightened comments,Â minimizing the money trail of this current mosque,Â the size of TexasÂ here.
“I don’t know, and government shouldn’t â€“ do you really want every time they pass the basket in your church and you throw a buck in,Â they run over and say,Â ‘Okay, now, you know, where do you come from? Who are your parents? Where’d you get this money?”
So far we know that the large money trail emerging behind the aggressive push of this mosque is linked to Saudi Arabia,Â Islamic leaders who support the murderous and terrorist group,Â HAMAS and support other radical Islamic groups worldwide.Â Master private Investigator Doug Hagmann and I talked recently about the compromised money trail behind the mosque and very soon he will have more disturbing information to release on my national radio show and in print.Â Stay tuned.Â It isn’t pretty,Â though Bloomberg no doubt thinks we are wasting our time exploring the money trail.
What many may not realize is that since the 1970s King Fahd and other Saudi leaders issued a directive that “no limits be put on expenditures for the propagation of Islam.Â The Washington post talks about the endless spending regarding this goal worldwide.Â For example,Â in 1984,Â $130 million was put into making a printing company to produce Saudi-approved versions of the Koran.Â By 2000,Â they had distributed 138 million copies.
Saudi Arabia has long felt called to convert the world to Islam or enslave the world,Â via tax and oil power.Â They also feel the internal call and pressure to compete with Egypt and Iran regarding building the world wide caliphate.
The drama and aggressive Islamic push has continued by the Saudis.
1993 the Saudis created an Islamic affairs ministry designed to export Wahhabism
