Thanks. Here's the part that caught my eye:

As of January 2005, Imam Arafat began conducting programs on “Islam in America” through the International Speakers Program of The United States Department of States in Chad, Niger, Mauritania, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kenya, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Maldives, Spain, Austria, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Iceland, Belgium and India.

Sounds like a lot of geography for this U.S. State Department asset.

Suprising, again, given the fact that major schools of Salafists and Wahhabis and so on emphatically don't even consider them to be within the Dar al-Islam. A Sufi is not what you'd naturally expect to be the diplomatic selectman to be OK with everybody.

Reread post #25.

Connect these dots:

“Imam” ( )



With a lot of “respect”:

Imam Arafat: respect for religious diversity
Vatican Radio - 2013-10-09 14:06:05

...and most likely he’s Sunni, not Sufi, playing the ecumenical “all paths lead to Allah(God??)” angle, same as PF.......but with a working knowledge of the “wisdom of the “Shari’ah”” law.

Encouraged to walk like an Egyptian?:

So,for a one world religion, will it be Canon Law, “Shari’ah Law, God’s Law, or....under Grace following Jesus?

Imam Arafat’s been ready for Christmas....
