    Imam Rauf, of the Cordoba House/ Ground Zero Mosque/ Park 51 /Prayer Space. Who is supposedly no longer associated with the multi-named community facility, is a self-professed proponent of Sharia Law and Finance in the United States. We were particularly interested in the recent NYU Sharia Law Symposium since this movement to make the U.S. Sharia Compliant by organizations like CAIR and MAS is going full-bore. They continue to push their bridge building narrative on all levels of our society. This symposium was primarily a two day commercial for Islam. As we lead up to the 9-11 10th Anniversary. Take...
  • 'Ground Zero Mosque' Clears Legal Hurdle to Build

    The backers of the controversial "Ground Zero Mosque" have won a court fight clearing the way for them to build the mosque and community center complex two blocks from the site of the 9/11 terror attack. In a decision on Friday that was made public today, New York State Supreme Justice Paul Feinman dismissed a lawsuit by former firefighter Timothy Brown who argued that New York City was wrong to allow the destruction of a 150-year-old building to make way for the Islamic center.

    My earlier prediction from September:Imam Rauf decided to pick a spot near Ground Zero so that there would be an outcry… and he’ll keep stringing this along until one day when he’ll do the “honorable” and “right thing”: announce that instead of an Islamic Community Center which promotes Interfaith Understanding, he’ll build an Interfaith Center devoted equally to all religions… and the crowds will cheer and people will actually be happy about an Interfaith Center… maybe for the first time ever...recent article from March 30:Two co-founders of the controversial plan to build an Islamic cultural center and mosque two blocks...
  • New Ground Zero Mosque Imam (Another wolf in sheep's clothing...)

    Patriot Action ^ | January 19, 2011 | Joseph Klein
    ( Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf) is out as the religious face of the Park 51/Cordoba House mega mosque community center complex proposed to be built near Ground Zero. Rauf became too radioactive for the project's developers, so he was pushed aside. Despite efforts by some apologists to defend this faux 'moderate, the evidence of his true (stealth jihad agenda) was overwhelming. Therefore, to keep moving ahead with their Ground Zero mosque project, the developers turned to Shaykh Abdallah Adhami as Rauf's replacement. This is just like rubbing more salt into the wound. All that the new imam represents is a...

    Saudi Arabia Says It's Not Involved In NYC Ground Zero Mosque Monday, Dec 20, 2010RIYADH (Zawya Dow Jones)--Saudi Arabia said late Monday it is neither involved in plans to build a mosque near the site of the September 11 attacks in New York, nor in possible talks to move the mosque to a less controversial site in Manhattan. The kingdom "has no involvement, either directly or indirectly, with Park 51, formerly known as Cordoba House, in New York City, nor is it involved --in anyway--in talks that may be taking place to relocate the proposed community center," the country's embassy...

    “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...

    Has anyone else thought to check the direction of Mecca from Ground Zero? I used QiblaLocator. Funny how the Cordoba house lies almost on the line, ain't it? If you rerun it from somewhere within the former WTC1 site, the line goes exactly through the victory mosque. Must be a coincidence...

    Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, a partner in the project to build an Islamic center and mosque two blocks north of the former World Trade Center site, said today that debate surrounding the project has been “hijacked by radicals” on both sides. Speaking with Christiane Amanpour on ABC’s “This Week,” Rauf said media attention has inflamed and distorted the debate, and that the debate is being watched carefully by the Muslim world. “The discourse is being watched very closely, and if we make the wrong move it will only strengthen the radicals,” he said. If the proposed center was moved, Rauf...

    (CNN) -- Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the religious leader behind plans to erect an Islamic center and mosque a few blocks from New York's ground zero, said Wednesday night that moving it to another location would embolden Islamic radicals and help them incite violence against Americans. "If we move from that location, the story will be the radicals have taken over the discourse," Rauf told CNN's Soledad O'Brien on "Larry King Live." Rauf said he was speaking about "radicals" on both sides of the debate on the Islamic center. "Our national security now hinges on how we negotiate this, how...

    The "Golden Age" of pluralistic Muslim rule, alluded to by Rauf's proposed mosque title, has been thoroughly debunked by historians. Imam Feisal Rauf, “founder and visionary” of the Cordoba Initiative, apparently sees the construction of a triumphal mosque within the 9/11 World Trade Center attack’s zone of destruction as a fulfillment of his vision for Islam in America. As Rauf stated in his 2004 What’s Right with Islam, a work limited to treacly Islamic propaganda: For many centuries, Islam inspired a civilization that was particularly tolerant and pluralistic. … Great philosophers such as Maimonides were free to create their historic...

    At a forum in 2006, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf maintained that U.S. terrorism brought about Islamic terrorism. This aides the comments that the Imam made just 19 days after the September 11 terrorist attacks that U.S. policies were an ‘accessory’ to what happened on 9/11.

    At 51 Park Place in New York City–the proposed Ground Zero mosque location– was interviewing people on the street when an American Muslim supporter of the mosque said to “get over” 9/11 and that despite Manhattan having over 200 mosques, they need to keep the location of the mosque “right here.” “God d****it, my wife is Jewish. Come on you guys, get over it”, the man said in regards to 9/11 after trying to draw an analogy using the Vietnam War. Right after he says to “get over it”, a lady responded “Oh my God, I’m not going to...

    Yesterday outside of Park 51 in New York City–the location of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque– interviewed Kamal Wahad who is a personal friend and follower of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and security guard of the vacant building. During the interview Wahad said there is no point in relocating the mosque, and that the funding “will come from Muslims around the world.” Wahad says he’s known Rauf for “twenty-something years” and has been a follower the entire time. When asked why the Imam will not meet with New York Governor David A. Paterson about relocating, he stated ” there’s no...

    I have two quick thoughts here - 1. It's stunning to me that any President would support anything this unpopular less than 90 days from an election. Obama's showing just about the same level of disregard to his own party as he does Republicans. Maybe that old quote where Obama says he'll stand with the Muslims (Dreams of My Father?) was accurate. 2. It surprises me that even something as near-universally reviled as the Cordoba House project isn't enough to get Democrats to stand united against it - only 41% of Dems are against the project, while 28% are for...

    Rep. Peter King (R-NY), the Ranking Member of the House Homeland Security Committee, accused Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of trying to intimidate 9/11 families from expressing their criticism of the location of the Cordoba House mosque planned for construction in a building near the World Trade Center site that was severely damaged in the September 11, 2001, terror attack that killed nearly 3,000 people. King made his remarks on the Fox News Channel this morning (video courtesy Mediate):"I...see it as a threat by the Speaker to try to intimdate people who are speaking out against the location...

    While the proposed building of a 13-story, $100 million Islamic Center and mosque near New York's Ground Zero has given all political sides plenty of ammunition for their talking points, it also provides opportunities for real leadership. But while a new poll shows New York voters oppose plans to build Cordoba House by a nearly 2-to-1 margin and 68 percent of Americans nationwide feel the same way, President Barack Obama and his supporters continue their attempts to turn the issue into a lecture on constitutionality rather than trying to bring about mutual tolerance.

    The religion of peace has shown its true colors once again, this time north of the American border. The growing debate over the proposed Ground Zero Cordoba House mosque in New York has become international. And so have the threats. Raheel Raza, a Canadian and the founding member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, had previously spoke out against the mosque idea, calling it "“a deliberate provocation". As reported in the Sun, after returning from a meeting in N.Y. regarding the mosque (Raza was joined by Maureen Basnickim, a Canadian widow of 9-11), Raza says she received a phone call from...
