In my last article, “Spitting in the Face of Everyone Murdered on 9/11,” I spoke out against building a mosque at Ground Zero in New York City. Aside from the moral issue of having a mosque so close to Ground Zero (one would think if Islam is truly the religion of peace, its representatives would surely see the great agitation this causes and do the decent thing by just not building it there). Forget the question of who is funding the $100 million, 13-story monster mosque, because of all the e-mails and comments I received, I decided a more interesting venture would be to look a little deeper into the man behind the mosque.
Back in 2004, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf was invited to speak in Sydney, Australia, by Premier Bob Carr. According to an article that was published at the time in the Sydney Morning Herald, Imam Rauf stated, “The U.S. and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end.” Published on March 21, 2004, the article quoted the Imam from New York. “Speaking from his New York mosque, Imam Feisal said the West had to understand the terrorists' point of view.” Rauf further stated, "The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians. But it was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresden and Hiroshima, neither of which were military targets."
"The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians…” Really? Wow, glad that was cleared up. So where did that stack of dead bodies (from the 15,297 terrorist attacks perpetrated in the name of Jihad and Islam since 9/11) come from?
“The West had to understand the terrorists' point of view.” Actually, I do understand their point of view. I have read the Koran, the Hadith and the Sira. This so-called “religion of peace” is nothing of the sort. I think the founder of CAIR (the Council of American-Islamic Relations), Omar Ahmad, summed it up best when he said, “Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” This statement has been widely reported over the years, but it appears Mr. Rauf is counting on the ignorance of many people to win this argument. Ahmad's statement reflects nothing more than a fervent wish for domination, pure and simple.
So who is this man, Imam Rauf, who now wants to dominate Ground Zero in the shadow of a $100 million, 13-story mosque?
Imam Rauf was born in Kuwait in 1948 after his parents fled (or were thrown out, depending on which report you read) from Egypt. His father, Dr. Muhammad Abdul Rauf, was a known member of the Muslim Brotherhood which is why some say he was thrown out of Egypt in 1948. The Muslim Brotherhood, for those of you who don’t know, was founded in 1928, only four years after the Ottoman Empire ended. It is the oldest terrorist organization in the world and has over 70 different offshoots which include al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah, just to name a few. Interestingly, the Muslim Brotherhood is not only banned here in the U.S., but it was banned in Egypt as well.
People need to know history in order to understand Islam and what they are really out to achieve. At its height, the Islamic Empire covered more of the earth than the Roman Empire. The Ottoman Empire ended in 1924 and the Muslim Brotherhood came about only four years later. This is no coincidence; it was established to bring back the world domination that Islam once had. Aside from Islam conquering a huge part of the world, Islam also conquered most of Spain in the year 711 from Tariq ibn Zayid's invasion and held it through 1248; it controlled parts of Spain until its full liberation in 1492. Spain was renamed Andalusia. So why is this of importance?
The name of the organization planning the mosque is the “Cordoba Initiative,” and this name itself is a full affront to Americans. Cordoba was the seat of the Islamic Caliphate that ruled Spain and the name is often used today by Islamic militants when recalling the glory of the Islamic Empire from the years when they occupied Spain.
Brigitte Gabriel, the founder of ACT for America and the author of They Must Be Stopped and Because They Hate, was a guest on the Sean Hannity show recently where she stated, “Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has said publicly that the September 11th attack was not perpetrated by Muslims. He said publicly on CNN that the United States was an accessory to the crime and that Osama bin Laden was made in the United States.”
Brigitte Gabriel has also referred to CAIR as the “arm of Hamas in America.” CAIR was named an "unindicted co-conspirator" along with the Islamic Society of North America, and the North American Islamic Trust, in connection with the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development trial. Between July and September 2007, prosecutors in the terrorism case against the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) and its top officials released a multitude of exhibits and documents that provided extraordinary understanding into the web of connections tying together a handful of Hamas front groups that operated on American soil throughout the 1990s and beyond, serving as a central piece in the Muslim Brotherhood's U.S. network.
CAIR was one of the "unindicted co-conspirators" in U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation. So why is Imam Rauf standing with Sultan Muhammad, the communications coordinator for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in the picture above? What are his connections to CAIR or for that matter the Muslim Brotherhood? Is he following in his father’s sandals?
Muslims are allowed, no, they are commanded, to lie. This is called “Taqiyya.” Taqiyya can be used in interaction with any non-Muslim so long as it furthers the interest of Islam. According to Islam Watch, “The word 'Taqiyya' literally means: 'Concealing, precaution, guarding.' It is employed in disguising one's beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims.”
The website also explains, “Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur'an and Sunna, including lying under oath in testimony before a court, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a 'religion of peace'. A Muslim is even permitted to deny or denounce his faith if, in so doing, he protects or furthers the interests of Islam, so long as he remains faithful to Islam in his heart.”
Is Imam Rauf just practicing Taqiyya? Is the mosque planned at Ground Zero nothing more than another mosque built out of the quest for global domination? Muslims have been destroying houses of worship built by every other faith since the rise of the Islamic Empire. The world over, Islam has ransacked tens of thousands of churches, synagogues, monasteries and holy archaeological sites, not to mention Buddhist, Sikh, Zoroastrian, Hindu temples and others. After this occurs, they build a mosque over it and claim it in the name of Allah. Domination, pure and simple.
Now, call it what you want – terrorists, radical Islamic extremists, man made catastrophes, insert your favorite politically correct term here – destroyed the Twin Towers and murdered 3,000 people on 9/11. They were Jihadists...period. Are we going to let them build a mosque 600 feet from where the towers once stood?
