Posted on 09/22/2010 8:17:08 AM PDT by Ooh-Ah
Bridge builder Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf, the Muslim cleric behind plans for the Ground Zero mosque, has now been exposed as a man of shrewd cunning and as a calculating stealth jihadist who supports the creation of an Islamic State, The Ummah, right here in America.
An interview has surfaced in which, after being assured that it has ended, Imam Rauf speaks off-the-record and reveals some intriguing plans and views that he has regarding America and the world. The interview, given on June 20th, 2006, sees Rauf speaking about his game plan for achieving an Islamic State without borders, which in his mind has previously existed and should have continued to exist, if not for Western interference in the last century. The Ground Zero mosque imam also discusses some of his other objectives which include: (1) manipulating U.S. foreign policy, (2) advocating for Hamas and (3) getting power on his side to push back the opposing interests. In one part of the post-interview, he also boasts that he advised and influenced former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and that he has a blurb on the back of one of her books.
One cant help from wondering: why is a Sufi cleric involved in such things?
Check out Rauf off-mic here:
To get a closer look at the psychology and true game plan of Imam Rauf, lets take a closer look at some of the more intriguing quotes from him in this interview:
9/11 was a watershed, was a major catalytic force in, in catalyzing the attention towards the issue of Islam, its presence in the West.
This quote clearly reveals that the Imam sees 9/11 mainly as a major opportunity, a milestone in advancing Islam. In other words, he holds that the murder of 3,000 Americans is now facilitating the work of nice moderate Imams like himself in America.
How America should really engage with them [Hamas] Helping her [Madeline Albright] understand the role of religion. She supported a Jewish State in the Middle East; why not support an Islamic State?
When Rauf learned that the interview was over, he opens up regarding his advocacy for Hamas and how he advised and influenced former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright with whom he claimed to have had constant contact. Rauf warns of the need to deal with Hamas lest we lose this organization to bad guys, like Syria or Iran, as if Hamas is not bad enough on its own. This is the same threat this man of peace is warning America with to never upset the Islamic street or else.
We have designed our Cordoba Initiative to be designed, in other words, we have 5 major areas of our program. So we have foreign policy, is one area, you have communications is another area, you have education as the third area, for example, you have intra-Islamic issues is the fourth area, arts and culture is the fifth area.
Why would Cordoba, which he claims to be a cultural center, have a foreign policy section that would develop strategy action play? What is it exactly he going to educate Americans about? Will he send Muslim coaches to American schools to teach sensitivity training to watch out for the feelings of Muslims? Or might he demand to educate American kids about how to pray to Allah?
If the entertainment media, the news media, was broadcasted in print, describe and speak about the issues in a different way it can help change perceptions profoundly, because its the media, which helps shape perceptions to a great degree. So if we have strategic action plays, designed plays, in the area of foreign policy, in the area of healing the divide, and then you unpack and give up Israel. You then have to have your offensive coaching stuff, your offensive coach and defensive coach and your head coach, we have to have our Palestinian coach, etc.
Rauf speaks here like a war strategist who wants to use the media to shape perceptions to promote his strategic action plays in the area of foreign policy. Rauf and I are both of Egyptian origin and I think he is still dreaming of the good old days when the Egyptian media propaganda machine I lived under and participated in was at its strongest. Before moving to America, I was a journalist and media censor in the Middle East News Agency. There is no other way to interpret what Rauf wants: to use the media the way the tyrants and dictators of the Middle East do: as a traditional Islamic tool of indoctrination, misinformation and propaganda. Watch how clever Rauf inserts words like healing the divide right before hitting us with you unpack and give up Israel.
I am the head coach of this strategic initiative and the President of the United States, or the President of Malaysia, or the President of England, is like a player you want to bring in for particular plays. We look at it as American football, you want to gain yardage.
Are we supposed to believe that these are normal words of a peaceful Sufi cleric? What is it that he wants to win in yardage, one yard at a time? These are clearly grandiose plans of what appears to be a borderline delusional narcissist who admits he plans to manipulate U.S. foreign policy, the U.S. president, the president of England (someone please inform the Queen on that one!) whom he considers as just players in his grand scheme.
When he is asked who he considers to be the enemy, he answers: You have to make sure you are not pushed back, you have to make sure you have power on your side to be able to push the ball forward. Is this community building or a war strategy?
Mr. Rauf goes on to speak of his vision of the Islamic State:
I dont want a demographic Islamic State, it is not a part of our tradition and never was until recently. He added Egypt, Alexandria, had 400,000 Greeks We created the notion of demographic Nation State whereas before that they were all living together.
Rauf has an illusion of an Islamic State that never was and never will be. For some reason, Im hearing John Lennons song Imagine (theres no countries no borders etc).
Raufs true self, motives and objectives have been exposed in this interview. To him, the hard Jihad of 9/11 was just a catalytic beginning that facilitated his form of stealth Jihad. Soften the American public with a huge explosive terror act that divides Americans and sends their heads spinning, then comes Rauf to save the day with his community bridge-building at Ground Zero. To him, 9/11 was just a strategic move in an Islamic/Western chess game. With both violent and stealth jihad coordinating their efforts and by playing the old good cop-bad cop routine on the American psyche, Rauf aims at becoming the Muslim hero in America who will join those who want to break down Americas borders brick by brick until finally one day America is transformed into a Sharia-compliant Islamic state.
Faisal Rauf is the typical double-faced Islamist who speaks from both sides of his mouth. Even his book has one nice title in English to fool the West, while in Arabic it advocates Sharia from Ground Zero. While claiming that his mission is non-political, just community building, his interview not only exposes him but more importantly exposes Islams goals and the fact that moderate Islam can work in perfect harmony and in conjunction with radical Islam.
Imam Rauf is dangerous, but what is more dangerous is our State Department which has has been facilitating the agenda of a clearly megalomaniacal stealth jihadist.

Shouldn’t a drone be moving in on this guy by now? Obama actually has known terrorists representing this country, and I am not dreaming !! Uggghhh !

Were the Founding Fathers including efforts at establishing an Islamic “state without borders” in their concept of freedom of religion? I don’t believe they were. In their day they wouldn’t have thought that possible. They were concerned about equal rights for Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Quakers, Jews. . . . .
If this is the best representative of “moderate Islam” that the Left/MSM can muster, just imagine what they aren’t telling us about the non-moderates. To quote another FReeper: Islam delenda est.
Bridge builder, indeed. /s
No matter what you do for or to a muslim, at the end of the day, you are still the infidel.
LOL - Him and every other butt kisser foreigner in the world... Was that woman susceptible to flattery or what?

Talk about the height of idiocy and insensitivity and submission. I am sure he is including the 19 jihadist murderers as well.

Bill Clinton suggested that the Islamic center near Ground Zero be dedicated to the Muslim victims of 9/11.”
FYI, please share with others.
If the founding fathers were alive today, these guys would be getting an a**-whooping!!
This is *it*.
Put an end to his charade and take all the damn pols who supported him with him.
Perhaps they don't seem to particularly care because calling attention to the disappearing Christian population since the removal Saddam contradicts their pro-world policing playbook that our presence in Iraq is beneficial.
"I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave."

I guess their oil is the only POSSIBLE reason to shed American blood for these people. It begs a question: WHY THE HELL ARENT WE USING OUR OWN?? ARE WE MAD? (Dont answer that.)
“a project of folly”

“Were the Founding Fathers including efforts at establishing an Islamic state without borders in their concept of freedom of religion?”
I don’t recall reading that there were any Muslims on the Mayflower.
And notice how the head cockroach completely EVADES the issue of the enemy team....and what he is really fighting!!
Ajami closes with a story from 638: when the second caliph, Omar, was being shown around Jerusalem by the Patriarch Sophronius, he was inside the church of the Holy Sepulchre when it came time for prayer. Instead of praying where he was he insisted on going outside of the church so that his followers wouldn’t try to convert that Christian holy place into a Muslim shrine.
This scumbag is a jihadii and a big duke in the Sharia law movement.
The modern democrat party embraces terrorist (Ayers, Rathke, etc.) and Marxists (JOnes, et al in the White Hut inner circle) don’tchaknow. They are the ‘enlightened thinkers’ who have imagined the means to impliment the one world government that generates human utopia on planet Earth! Have you ‘knot’ yet embraced the darkside? Get with the democrat party plan there, Scythian! The American Republic is obsolete. Unions must be enlarged and the wages reduced as governemnt provided benefits rise, so that the wages of international union workers may be increased and the American taxpayer fund the benefits of all union members. Don’t you even listen to what the Obama adviser/sage genius Andy Stern proclaims? Has the coming and goin of Anita Dunn escaped your attention? Doesn’t the democrat legislation jsut tingle your tangle? We the people are the subjects of the new federal oligarchy which the democrats are finishing as we sit and observe! Don’t interrupt progress, Scythian. The secular commie force be with you.
It is quite amazing to witness taqiyya in operation. Where does one nail these lying islamics down when they lie continuously? Do other mooselimbs even know when they’re being lied to?
Don’t Forget that this Imam is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
He’s more of a political insider, elite, establishment expert than he is a Muslim.
Here’s the link. See Madaline Albright right up there at the top.
Our problem is we don’t have a vision of a world that is free and governed by the principles of the US Constitution. I always believed that, after the cold war, we should create a foreign policy that had that as its goal. We were moving in that direction, but Clinton screwed it up, and Bush II didn’t articulate anything coherent.
Anybody surprised? He and his fellow uncivilized savages should be expelled and the borders closed to all the rest of them.
Uh, Like, Duh.
Did he think we wouldn’t NOTICE????
The enemy is among us, working to destroy us. Slowly or quickly; whatever method is effective.
Scratch Episcopalians! There were no Episcopalians until the American Revolution.
The Episcopal Church was started when the Founding Fathers passed laws making treasonous the Church of England's required religious practice of swearing allegiance to and praying for the King. Those congregations were reorganized - without the treasonous religious elements - as the Episcopal Church.
The Founding Fathers knew that true love of the Constitution & Country required that "Religious Freedom" ends were treason to that Constitution & Country begins. True patriots will see their lesson for today's America.

I have been looking for the speech for years and finally found it, it was Reagan’s last major speech at the Oxford Union in 1992, I think of this speech as his parting words and a blueprint for the post-Cold War world, and although you could see some signs of what was to come, he was still as brilliant as ever. And obviously few have heeded his words- more’s the pity. I must admit watching this speech, my eyes welled up a few times, as I realized how much I miss this man.
ADDITION: Those congregations of The Church of England that would not reorganize, were forced to leave the country.
Is there a fr thread for that?

Is this recorded or only in print?
If so,either way, we need to be MORE VIRAL than just FREEP.
We need professionals who are paid with donations to make this happen...like, some Tea Partier who is a SocialMedia expert.
Otherwise, our tree fell in the woods and no one can prove it made a noise.
Sorry, mistakenly posted last comment to you.
I don’t know. You might start one. I try to post Pam’s articles from time to time, but she can be hard to keep up with!
My point was - and even with the Bill of Rights, still is -The Church of England was NOT welcomed or protected.
Pam Geller usually has everything at Atlas Shrugs or SIOA (SOIA??)
I did hear the recording of this somewhere within the last few days. Sorry to be of so little help though.
