HISTORICAL QUOTES FROM A FEW GREAT OBSERVERS throughout the ages are uncannily in agreement about the ruthless and ugly nature of Islam.
“The West must understand the terrorists’ point of view.”Actually, I do understand their point of view. I have read the Koran, the Hadith and the Sira. This so-called “religion of peace” is nothing of the sort. I think the founder of CAIR (the Council of American-Islamic Relations), Omar Ahmad, summed it up best when he said, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” This statement has been widely reported over the years, but it appears Mr. Rauf is counting on the ignorance of many people to win this argument. Ahmad’s statement reflects nothing more than a fervent wish for domination, pure and simple.
So who is this man, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who now wants to dominate Ground Zero in the shadow of a $100 million, 13-story mosque?
Imam Rauf was born in Kuwait in 1948 after his parents fled (or were thrown out, depending on which report you read) from Egypt. His father, Dr. Muhammad Abdul Rauf, was a known member of the Muslim Brotherhood which is why some say he was thrown out of Egypt in 1948. The Muslim Brotherhood, for those of you who don’t know, was founded in 1928, only four years after the Ottoman Empire ended. It is the oldest terrorist organization in the world and has over 70 different offshoots which include al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah, just to name a few. Interestingly, the Muslim Brotherhood is not only banned here in the U.S., but it was banned in Egypt as well.
The name of the organization planning the mosque is the “Cordoba Initiative,” and this name itself is a full affront to Americans. Cordoba was the seat of the Islamic Caliphate that ruled Spain and the name is often used today by Islamic militants when recalling the glory of the Islamic Empire from the years when they occupied Spain.Muslims are allowed, no, they are commanded, to lie. This is called “Taqiyya.” Taqiyya can be used in interaction with any non-Muslim so long as it furthers the interest of Islam. According to Islam Watch, “The word ‘Taqiyya’ literally means: ‘Concealing, precaution, guarding.’ It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims.”
The website also explains, “Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur’an and Sunna, including lying under oath in testimony before a court, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’. A Muslim is even permitted to deny or denounce his faith if, in so doing, he protects or furthers the interests of Islam, so long as he remains faithful to Islam in his heart.”
Is Imam Rauf just practicing Taqiyya? Is the mosque planned at Ground Zero nothing more than another mosque built out of the quest for global domination? Muslims have been destroying houses of worship built by every other faith since the rise of the Islamic Empire. The world over, Islam has ransacked tens of thousands of churches, synagogues, monasteries and holy archaeological sites, not to mention Buddhist, Sikh, Zoroastrian, Hindu temples and others. After this occurs, they build a mosque over it and claim it in the name of Allah. Domination, pure and simple.
