Skip to comments.Ground Zero imam: 'We have more of a right to Moses'
Posted on 01/21/2011 9:43:26 PM PST by Immerito
Muslims have "more of a right" than Jews to the biblical prophet Moses, declared the imam who has become the new face of the proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero in New York City.
Imam Abdallah Adhami also urged Muslims to "compete" with other religions.
"We must be doing it first, we must compete with you to be doing more of that. We want to fast Ashura too, because that's the day God saved Moses; that is certainly a day to be celebrated. We have more right to Moses," stated Adhami in a 2008 lecture obtained and reviewed by WND.
Ashura is an Islamic fast day that commemorates Muslim events, including the Islamic claim that Moses fasted on that day to express gratitude to God for liberating the Israelites from Egypt.
In his lecture, Adhami recounted the Islamic story of the Muslim figure Muhammad arriving in Medina, where he encountered Jews who fasted on Ashura and asked them why they were celebrating the holiday.

Why? Are Muslims related to the Egyptian princess?
So.....The Ten Commandments belong to the Koran????
Well, present it Abdallah Adhami.
They got the rights to Lower Manhattan. I guess that’s settled.
Hmm, I never thought of rights as being quantitative. Of course, I don’t like the idea of ownership (literally or figuratively) of another human being either. Islam, what a nice “religion.” ;-/
Come and get him.
Remember though, Moses was a Jew.
I was doing surface stuff, you just get right to it. :^)
Will you stop inserting FACTS into the discussion, all they do is confuse, frustrate and anger the intellectually liberal. :-) ;-)
Next you’ll be saying that Moses couldn’t have possibly been Muslim because Islam wouldn’t be invented for over 2000 years after he lived.
>> declared the imam
A false sense of superiority.
> Are Muslims related to the Egyptian princess?
Ishmael, forefather of all the Arabs, was the bastard son of Abraham and an Egyptian servant woman.
I don’t think Hagar was Egyptian. Perhaps a Canaanite.
Can’t we all just share Moses?
TROP hallucinatory violence only came to Egypt about 1500 years later. the imam is. at best, a buffoon..
Genesis 16:3 states she was Sarai’s Egyptian servant.
Thank you. I stand corrected.
No, Moses was a pre-Muhammad Muslim, as was Abraham, doing Allah's work by evicting Da Joooozz from Egypt, to prepare the way for the Arabs to take it over about 2,500 years later, give or take a century or two.
As a bonus,it put Da Joooozz all in one place, making it easier for Allah, via the Arabs, to persecute them later. /sarc-parody
They will spout much the same, and worse, with a straight face; even the "fact" that Abraham BUILT their damned (literally) moon rock building (Kaaba), after taking Ishmael (not Issac) to be sacrificed (there, not at Mount Zion), as an alter of thanksgiving, after finding the black rock.
THEY ARE NUTS!
Well that explains why Moses aka Mosey was not allowed to enter the promised land.
They are getting bolder, and will continue so.
Why not? They know the west will lie down.
Most importantly, nobody in the west will care if they say islam rules the world
I will say, WND is always a questionable source at best, so we need another source.
