Imam Shakeup at the Ground Zero Mosque (Imam Rauf had to go but his replacement is no better)
American Thinker ^ | 01/17/2011 | Pamela Geller

There has been a shakeup at the Cordoba Initiative/Park 51, the group behind the projected Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero. The deceitful pro-Sharia Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan are out, and an imam from Washington, D.C., Abdullah Adhami, is in.

What does this mean? First, it means that we won. We are declaring victory. It seems clear that Rauf had to go because he had become a liability to the taqiyya project of the Ground Zero mosque. And that is because of the light we shed on his true beliefs and allegiances. Rauf snagged more than $2 million in public financing to renovate low-income apartments he owns in New Jersey. He took the money and never made the repairs, forcing good people to live with vermin and dilapidation. Slumlord Rauf is also a prominent member of the Perdana organization, a leading funder of the flotilla launched against Israel by the genocidal Islamic terror group, IHH. He has made extreme statements like "the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims."

We exposed Imam Rauf. He is now attempting to crawl back under his rauf. The New York Times says that his dismissal was "announced unilaterally by Mr. Abdul Rauf's partner in the project, Sharif el-Gamal." If that is true, apparently there's some bad blood there. Sharif el-Gamal is the developer who is behind the Ground Zero mosque. This charlatan has said, "when you beat someone up physically, you get exercise & stress relief." The thug El-Gamal is also a deadbeat. This man who plans to build a 150-million-dollar mosque was evicted from his office for non-payment of rent, and he has another big debt he skipped out on, an un-repaid loan. It also came to light last summer that he owed $224,270.77 in back property tax on the mosque site, and failed to pay its bills in January and July.

What a pair, the extremist slumlord and the deadbeat mug. If someone like El-Gamal had had enough of Rauf, at least in a leadership role (he will continue on the Cordoba/Park 51 Board), you know the situation must be desperate.

To replace Rauf, they've named Abdullah Adhami, from Washington, D.C. They say that they're going to bring in others, also; they intend to bring in an army of imams to the Ground Zero mosquestrosity in their stead. But Adhami is no improvement on Rauf. If this guy is "modern" or a "moderate" or a "reformer," then I am the Pope. He's a "new imam," clearly intended to present a better public face for the Ground Zero mosque project than did Rauf, but he's the same as the old imam, essentially. The main evidence for that is his link to Siraj Wahhaj.

Siraj Wahhaj is a prominent American Muslim leader who has a reputation as a "moderate," but has a history of Islamic supremacist statements. In September 1991, he stated: "And [Allah] declared ‘Whoever is at war with my friends, I declare war on them.' ... Your true friend is Allah, the messenger, and those who believe.... The Americans are not your friends ... The Canadians are not your friends ... The Europeans are not your friends. Your friend is Allah, the Messenger and those who believe. These people will never be satisfied with you until you follow their religion..."

He has also said: "In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing, and the only thing that will remain will be Islam....if only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate."

Wahhaj also has served on the Board of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). And most importantly, Wahhaj was named a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Is there no one in Islamic leadership who is not tied in some way to jihad or terror? Or is it that El-Gamal and company really want these horrible connections to the terror attacks at Ground Zero?

Abdullah Adhami is an architect, and he is so enamored with this Islamic supremacist imam that he volunteered to design the masjid At-Taqwa, where Wahhaj incites his followers. Adhami has called Wahhaj "our beloved imam," and has said: "Siraj Wahhaj is the voice of the spirit of Islam in America and its pride."

This further demonstrates the true nature and belief system of Imam Rauf and Daisy Khan, whose reputations have been exposed to the American people. In a triumph for AFDI/SIOA and Americans across this great land, they slithered out of the Ground Zero mosque, opting out of the sunlight to work behind the scenes.

But we will continue to expose their stealth jihad.

I don’t believe that there is any such animal as a “good” Imam.

Except for the one that has been “introduced to Alla” by our Marine Corps, that is.

Back taxes are sort of a lein on a property, I think. If the taxes cannot be paid, the property can be confiscated....but the O would never allow that as he wouldn’t want to hurt the muzzies feelings.

Imam Siraj Wahhaj, the founder of the primarily African-American MANA, is a product of the volatile intersection of black nationalism and politicized Islam. A former member of the NOI, Wahhaj often has been portrayed as a "moderate" by the mainstream media. However, his words speak for themselves: "In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing, and the only thing that will remain will be Islam," Wahhaj has predicted.
