The utterly despicable and duplicitous Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his equally despicable and duplicitous wife Daisy Kahn (or is it Khan) have done the United States a favor. They have put Islam on the front burner again.
Shortly after 9/11 George Bush immediately tied our hands behind our backs by declaring we were not at war with Islam and Islam is a religion of peace. This became the mantra of the War on Terror and gospel for RINOs, self-hating white liberals and the radical left.
There are conservative talk show hosts who repeat this nonsense and bend over backwards to say that, legally, the Muslims have the right to build this mosque anywhere, that the issue is not a question of freedom of religion. The issue is the wisdom of building the mosque and the insult to Americans. I wish they would stop there but, in their attempt to appear "unfringy," they always follow up with the politically correct nonsense as well.
The truth, however, is this:
WE ARE AT WAR WITH ISLAM AND ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE!!!
There, I said it because it needs to be said. We are at war with Islam, whether we like it or not, because Islam is always at war with the West.
The most obvious war is the hot one being waged in Afghanistan and the drone attacks against the Taliban and Al Qaeda in Pakistan, and in Yemen. All well and good. But we should be stepping up our efforts. We should not be signaling our surrender dates. Troop surges are fine for maintaining the status quo and keeping the enemy at bay. It allows for the fragile governments in Iraq (which will probably collapse entirely when we finish our withdrawal) and Afghanistan. But it doesn't cause the enemy to capitulate and, now that we have withdrawn our combat capability, violence is now increasing in Iraq. The same thing will happen in Afghanistan
The other, more insidious war Islam is waging against us is a creeping stealth Sharia campaign, now personified by Rauf and his Ground Zero Mosque.
This virus of Sharia in America, enabled by progressive idiots like Mayor Bloomberg, Keith Olbermann and Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi (she called for an investigation into who's paying for the opposition to the mosque), the congressional fellow travelers, and political correctness, did not begin after 9/11. But the attacks accelerated the spread of the Sharia disease.
First we were warned about a backlash against Muslims post 9/11. The backlash never occurred. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the terrorist supporting front group for the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood, started making demands regarding accommodations for Muslims such as footbaths and prayer areas in airports, universities and other public facilities, a clear violation of the Constitution. Islamic studies have crept into public school curriculums while U.S. history and constitutional studies are shunted aside. All in the name of tolerance.
Our courts are now infected with Sharia. A New Jersey recently judge ruled that a Muslim man had the right to continuously rape his wife because his religion allowed it. Fortunately that decision was overturned. Sharia compliant financing has infected our banking system.
Twenty five percent of America, according to the Pew Research Group, believe our Fraudinator-in-Chief is a Muslim and the number is growing. Why?
It is because Obama acts overtly pro-Muslim in his dealings with Israel.
It is because he called the United States a Muslim nation.
It is because he bowed to the Saudi King.
It is because he hosted an Iftar Dinner for Ramadan and gave his approval to the mosque.
It is because he believes he can deal productively with Iran and other Islamo-fascist states.
It is because of his idiotic Cairo speech where he chastised Israel.
It is because of his terrible treatment of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.
It is because he openly mocks the Old and New Testament while referring, almost reverentially, to the Holy Koran
It is because of his twenty year association with the overtly Marxist Black Liberation pastor Jeremiah Wright, who espouses hatred of America, Jews and whites, and a form of "Christianity" that calls for collective rather than individual salvation, something that Obama has said on more than one occasion. If Obama is a Christian it is a type of Christianity that most Americans simply do not recognize.
And finally, Obama talked of his Muslim faith in an interview with George Stephanopoulos. Hoping no one would notice that gaffe George quickly stepped in to give cover to Obama by saying "my Christian faith".
Honestly, who says "my Muslim faith" by accident?
Meanwhile Liberals and Muslims are bending over backwards and falling all over themselves to convince us that Ground Zero Mosque masterminds Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Kahn are just folks. You could have them over for tea. They're just a couple of misunderstood patriots….Americans through and through.
The truth is these two are the new tip of the stealth Shariah sword pointed at America's heart.
WE ARE AT WAR WITH ISLAM AND ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE!!!
The backlash against Muslims that everyone feared after 9/11 may actually be starting with the Ground Zero Mosque as the catalyst. You can only poke a tolerant people in the eye so much before the line gets drawn in the sand. Fully 75% percent of Americans according to Pew oppose this mosque, yet the tone-deaf elites just keep plowing ahead with their self-congratulatory superiority complex and political correctness….a replay of the Obamacare debate, if you will.
Meanwhile legitimate questions about where the money is coming from to build this atrocity is ridiculed and characterized as, in true Saul Alinsky fashion, as hate speech and un-American. Time Magazine's latest cover apologizes to Muslims suggesting Americans have an Islam problem.
Well, Americans do have a problem with Muslims who lie about Islam's true intent. This practice is known as taqquia, which allows for practicing Muslims to be less than forthcoming on behalf of their faith to advance it's true aims, which is the establishment of Sharia and a world caliphate.
So let's meet these two gems, these paragons of Islamic virtue, who want to defile Ground Zero.
There are now plenty of documented statements from Daisy Kahn and Imam Rauf that suggest all is not as it seems when it comes to the Ground Zero Mosque. Here are but a few:
On September 30, 2001 just after the 9/11 attacks, Feisal Abdul Rauf was interviewed on 60 Minutes by host Ed Bradley.
BRADLEY: Are - are - are you in any way suggesting that we in the United States deserved what happened?
Imam ABDUL RAUF: I wouldn't say that the United States deserved what happened, but the United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened.
BRADLEY: OK. You say that we're an accessory?
Imam ABDUL RAUF: Yes.
Imam ABDUL RAUF: Because we have been an accessory to a lot of - of innocent lives dying in the world. In fact, it - in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the USA.
Rauf in 2005: "We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims."
On May 25, 2010, Rauf wrote an article for the New York Daily News insisting:
My colleagues and I are the anti-terrorists. We are the people who want to embolden the vast majority of Muslims who hate terrorism to stand up to the radical rhetoric. Our purpose is to interweave America's Muslim population into the mainstream society.
But only two months before, on March 24, 2010, Abdul Rauf is quoted in an article in Arabic for the website Rights4All entitled "The Most Prominent Imam in New York: 'I Do Not Believe in Religious Dialogue.'"
What a guy...a model of moderation.
And there's Daisy on ABC's "This Week" playing the Muslim victim card comparing the treatment of Muslims in America to the discrimination against Jews:
"This is like a metastasized anti-Semitism. That's what we feel right now. It's not even Islamophobia, it's beyond Islamophobia -- it's hate of Muslims. And we are deeply concerned."
"The community board has overwhelmingly supported this. So have all the politicians -- [Manhattan Borough President] Scott Stringer, Mayor Bloomberg. And we have to be cognizant that we also have a constitutional right."
"We have the Muslim community around the nation that we have to be concerned about, and we have to worry about the extremists as well, because they are seizing this moment."
Poor Daisy….enemies all around….and your sympathy for the Jews is downright touching. All the elites and the liberal useful idiots may support this nonsense but clear thinking Americans do not.
Remember, Ground Zero is about one thing and one thing only:
