Rauf on the Ropes
An Islamic community center at Ground Zero seems increasingly unlikely.
13 September 2010
The white flag hasnt reached the top of the flagpole yet, but Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf all but surrendered on Monday morning in his battle to build a Muslim interfaith community center with a prayer room two blocks from Ground Zero. At an unusual meeting Monday morning at the Council on Foreign Relations in midtown Manhattan, Rauf said that he wanted to find a solution to the furious imbroglio over the planned center, which opponents say is inappropriate, insensitive to the memory of those who died in the 9/11 attacks, and likely to inflame tensions rather than build bridges between Muslims and non-Muslims. Saying that his advisors were looking at every option, including a suggestion that the project be delayed until it could win greater support and become less divisive, the imam pledged to do whats best for all.
Everything is on the table, he told the more than 300 members of the group, which rarely holds on-the-record meetings and normally focuses on foreign affairs and national security rather than domestic or urban issues. In fact, the imam this morning was acknowledging the obvious: the project has been on de facto hold for weeks because of the numerous obstacles it now facesfirst and foremost, a lack of funding.

I’ll believe it when he throws in his turban.
Make room under the Obama Bus. Incoming!
I’ll believe it when somebody else buys that building and puts a Hillshire Farms warehouse full of pork products in it.
Maybe Rauf is reacting to the investigations of his background and financing, like the one that turned up his association with a “truther” who believes 911 was an inside job.
Don’t turn your back on him.
These folks been trading camels a heck of alot longer than we have.
Rauf and Ropes.... I'm getting the most delicious imagery!
Islam is a sham religion otherwise it would treat women a whole lot better than it does.
Islam is not a “religion” of peace but of conquest power and control at all costs.
Islam has more to do with Machiavellian principles than with God.
Why should we believe anything this guy says? He obviously talks out of both sides of his mouth.
It will never be okay, NEVER>
I bet the Democrats are screaming at this guy to go away until after November.
They are relentless and that's why they'll win if we don't wake up as a nation and defend ourselves.
Cheeze, they even have one of their own in the Oval Office.
The Dog Imam. Roufff, Rouffff. Grrrrrrr.
Islam is the religion of Lucifer! And he’s doing a pretty good job of winning so far.
Now the imam has said ground zero is not “hallowed ground”/proves just how insane this imam is...just like all the other imams.
Miller is clueless. The mosque will be built with Obama’s blessing.
