Islamic Supremacist Ground Zero Imam Threatens America: ‘Build It or Else…’

September 9, 2010

The controversial Ground Zero Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, talks about the separation of church and state and says “if you politicize religion that’s dangerous.” Yeah right! So his recent statement about the US Constitution being “sharia compliant” is not about politicizing religion. Take note: This is the same man who continues to talk about healing and building bridges. Al-Taqiyya- lying for the sake of Allah- is at work here. They are using American laws against the United States of America and its people. They talk about freedom of religion and tolerance when it suits them. Show me a country of intolerance, bigotry and that oppresses Christians and atheists and I’ll show you a country of injustice and slavery.

Here’s Rauf’s interview on CNN:

Rauf said: “If I knew this would cross this kind of pain, I wouldn’t have done it” (building the mosque). Tell it to the marines, Rauf! Of course he knows that his Cordoba House would add more salt to the injury being suffered by the families of 9/11 victims. That’s why they named it Cordoba House, which simply means Islamic triumphalism in the United States. This is a symbolic one. They won’t give that site up even if Donald Trump offered to buy it. In a very disgusting attempt to appease the Islamists, the liberals and Libertarians started to call the “site” Park51, but what is very clear is that Rauf insists on calling it “Cordoba House.”

He also said he’s more concerned about America’s national security. This is the same man who said this a few days after 9/11: ““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. You may remember that the US-led sanctions against Iraq led to the death of over half a million Iraqi children. This has been documented by the United Nations.”

Plus, I don’t buy his double talk and his attempt to perpetuate that false dichotomy “radical Islam” and “moderate Islam.” There is no such thing as moderate Islam. The religion itself is radical.

I’d like to share this excellent cartoon by Objectivist Bosch Fawstin.

This also reminds me of a letter written by a Muslim victim of the September 11 attack.

Here’s the letter:

A Muslim victim of 9/11: ‘Build your mosque somewhere else’

By Neda Bolourchi, Washington Post

I have no grave site to visit, no place to bring my mother her favorite yellow flowers, no spot where I can hold my weary heart close to her. All I have is Ground Zero.

On the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, I watched as terrorists slammed United Flight 175 into the South Tower of the World Trade Center, 18 minutes after their accomplices on another hijacked plane hit the North Tower. My mother was on the flight. I witnessed her murder on live television. I still cannot fully comprehend those images. In that moment, I died as well. I carry a hole in my heart that will never be filled.

From the first memorial ceremonies I attended at Ground Zero, I have always been moved by the site; it means something to be close to where my mother may be buried, it brings some peace. That is why the prospect of a mosque near Ground Zero — or a church or a synagogue or any religious or nationalistic monument or symbol — troubles me.

I was born in pre-revolutionary Iran. My family led a largely secular existence — I did not attend a religious school, I never wore a headscarf — but for us, as for anyone there, Islam was part of our heritage, our culture, our entire lives. Though I have nothing but contempt for the fanaticism that propelled the terrorists to carry out their murderous attacks on Sept. 11, I still have great respect for the faith. Yet, I worry that the construction of the Cordoba House Islamic cultural center near the World Trade Center site would not promote tolerance or understanding; I fear it would become a symbol of victory for militant Muslims around the world.

When I am asked about the people who murdered my mother, I try to hold back my anger. I try to have a more spiritual perspective. I tell myself that perhaps what happened was meant to happen — that it was my mother’s destiny to perish this way. I try to take solace in the notion that her death has forced a much-needed conversation and reevaluation of the role of religion in the Muslim community, of the duties and obligations that the faith imposes and of its impact on the non-Muslim world.
