A GOP 'moderate Muslim' -- or not

Suhail Khan, a major Republican sup porter of the Ground Zero mosque, has been lobbying GOP leaders on the Hill to back off their opposition. He's got their ear, mainly because he portrays himself as a moderate, patriotic Muslim. Yet newly surfaced videos contradict that.
Khan, a Bush administration vet who sits on the board of the American Conservative Union, assures skeptics that "Park 51 community center" imam Feisal Rauf is a "moderate." Fears over the mosque are overblown, he insists, fomented by "anti-Muslim bigotry." In a recent letter to fellow Republicans, he warned the party was "alienating millions of Arab-American and Muslim-American voters."
But Khan's assurances ring hollow against his own connections to radicals. While he strenuously denies such ties, evidence has emerged -- including exclusive video footage -- that exposes Khan comfortably in the company of known Islamic extremists. Consider:
* In June 2001, Khan personally accepted an award from the now-notorious Abdurahman Alamoudi, then head of the American Muslim Council.
* "We have with us a dear brother," Alamoudi said as he prepared to honor Khan with a plaque at the group's annual conference. "I'm really proud to be with Suhail Khan. Some of you saw him today in the White House, but inshallah [Allah willing], you will see him in better places in the White House, inshallah."

What is a “moderate” muslim? They only believe parts of the Koran? Only follow some segments of islam?
If they follow islam then they follow an evil cult based in oppression, terror and murder whose goal is the destruction of civilization
The fact he’s promoting the Ground Zero victory mosque proves he’s no moderate.

As far as I’m concerned there is no such thing.
So-called “moderate Muslims” have names in Muslim societies, like “mushrik”(apostate) or even “kafir”(infidel).
Then there is the type which puts on a “moderate” act in the West because that’s what works for furthering their interests. But we should always remember-—it is permitted no, it is REQUIRED, by the Koran that a Muslim tell lies to non-believers in order to advance Islam.

We have pictures of good conservatives with crooks, criminals, and liberals — all later-exposed, of course; but we often expect people to be mind-readers and fortune-tellers, holding them responsible for people the know who do bad things later in life.

Islam is the sea in which the terrorist shark swims. It aids and comforts the shark on it’s journey. The deeper the sea the larger the shark can grow.

(Islam is the sea in which the terrorist shark swims. It aids & comforts the shark on it's journey.)
(at CPAC 2010, the) message there was that real conservatives dont support the war
on terror because it is a creation of the Israeli lobby which coalesces with the left-
wings new anti-Semitism against neoconservatives. Karen Kwiatkowski is a darling of
both the leftist Huffington Post and the anti-Semitic paleocon site Antiwar.com.
is a board member of the ACU, and from the looks of CPACs
covered topics and omission of discussion of jihad, it looks as if he exerts enormous
influence over David Keene, the ACUs nominal leader. Norquist and his ally Suhail
Khan seem to be in charge at CPAC no CPAC event goes on that doesnt reflect their perspective.
Grover Norquists troubling ties to Islamic supremacists and jihadists have been known
for years. He and his Palestinian wife, Samah Alrayyes, who was director of
communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they married in 2005, are very
active in Muslim outreach.
It was Norquist who ushered these silver-tongued jihadists into the Oval Office after the
worst attack ever on American soil.
Grover Norquist was on the jihad payroll before and after the carnage and death of
Norquist also introduced Nihad Awad, cofounder and executive director of the Council
on American-Islamic Relations, to President Bush.
It is no surprise that CPAC 2010, like CPAC 2009, had nothing addressing the war we
are actually engaged in. This is due to the influence of Norquist, Keene, and Suhail Khan,
a CPAC board member. According to Gaffney, Khan has repeatedly been a featured
speaker at MSA, ISNA and CAIR events that is, Muslim Students Association, Islamic
Society of North America, and Council on American-Islamic Relations, three groups
linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, the international Islamic organization dedicated to
establishing the rule of Islamic law and the subjugation of infidels worldwide.

Radical Islam is an insane murder cult; moderate Islam is its Trojan Horse in the West.

Yasser Arafat was best at that.
Talk about peace and tolerance in the West; go to an Arab country and yell “Death to Israel” in Arabic.
