Posted on 08/21/2010 11:31:07 AM PDT by george76
The imam behind the plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero surfaced yesterday far from the controversy -- in Bahrain, where he's on a taxpayer-funded trip to the Middle East to spread good will.
Appearing in public for the first time in weeks, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, speaking at a mosque near Bahrain's capital of Manama, said he wants to "Americanize" Islam -- but dodged questions about the uproar over his planned mosque and community center.
This is Rauf's fourth US-sponsored trip to the region

Americanize” Islam “
They’ve already done that....”American born terrorist”
Islam is a war plan.
ROTFL! More proof that the anti-America crowd is becoming more desperate every day.
“Taxpayer funded” trip.
Where are the “separation of church and state” crowd and the ACLU?
Gee, isn't this a violation of the so-called "establishment clause", the club that Christianity constantly gets beaten over the head with?
No, they want to Islamize America. And we know it.
“make Islam ‘Americanized’”
Topless suicide bombers?
Why isn’t Hillary Clinton being asked about this? It’s her department - the funding for this trip came from her department’s budget ... why don’t any of the talking heads ask her about this?
If they were going to make islam conform to American values, they would have to throw away the qu’oran and disavow its evil pedophile author (may he burn in hell between pig’s intestines for eternity).
There is nothing ‘American’ about islam, or barack obama.
You've got my interest.
Liberals have no problem with this list?
(1)Muslim women have to wear the veil.
(2) Islam encourages wife beating.
(3) The woman inherits only half what a man can inherit.
(4)The womans testimony is equal only to half of the mans testimony.
(5)Muslim woman cannot have jobs outside their homes.
(6)Polygamy is strongly recommended.
(7)Men status is higher than that of the women. (Goes into the Eve problem and Christians)
(8) Muslim Women cannot have education.
(9)Women cannot share in the political life in their communities.
(10)Women cannot pray, fast, do Hajj or Ummrah during menstruation.
(11)Women are stoned to death for Adultery.
(12)Muslim women cannot marry Jewish or Christian men.

Since we’re paying for this boondogle, can we get some videos or transcripts from the state department of his speeches and meetings there?
He's probably leading the Iranians in a "Death to America" rally.
“Where are the separation of church and state crowd and the ACLU?”
You don’t understand - its “separation of church and state” not “separation of mosque and state”.
Thanks a lot! That’s the end of that fantasy.
The wrong is the double standard. While the government attacks Christians symbols and traditions they support an alien foreign creed WHICH HAS ANNOUNCED ITS INTENTION TO SUPPLANT DESTROY REPLACE OUR WAY OF LIFE BY USING OUR OWN LAWS AGAINST US. Moreover in their catechism it states that they are permitted to lie to achieve their goals, therefore nothing they say about their intentions can be believed.
Reno & the Fed had no problem twisting the laws to murder the people at Waco although they didn’t announce plans to destroy the government. I guess it was “for the children.” Well if they really cared about the children why is there no outrage about the stoning of 13 yr old girls?
What kind of “outreach” in a building that does not allow visitors into their rooms of worship? Non-converts would not be allowed into the auditoriums where they preach their vitriol against us. Didn’t the Fed just support a rule that made it mandatory for Christian students to accept non-believers as members and officials of their campus organization?
Muslims insult everybody else 5 times a day:
The Fatiha (Opening) is the first sura (chapter) of the Qur’an and most common prayer of Islam. If you’re a pious Muslim who prays the five requisite daily prayers of Islam, you will recite the Fatiha seventeen times in the course of those prayers.
From Wafa Sultans book A God Who Hates pg. 168:
A Muslim prays five times a day, and on each occasion he recites the Fatiha, the first verse of the Koran, a number of times. This verse describes Christians as those who have gone astray and Jews as those who have incurred Your wrath. We see from this that Muslims execrate Christians and Jews a number of times in the course of a single prayer, which they repeat five times a day.

The Americazation of muslims includes 1) renouncing sharia law 2) throwing away the burquas 3) opening up their sanctuaries to the public 4) re-writing their prayers 5) telling the truth
Obama is successful in Americanizing Marxism, so why not Americanize Islam? Obama would love to see America become a Muslim state with him as the Caliph. If it would put a burka over Michelle, it might be worth it.
No, it would not be worth it. Michelle O. is not an ugly woman, she’s ordinary. Besides you know what they sing:
