From World Net Daily and the Huffington Post comes the amazing story of an Islamic Mosque that will open it's doors just steps away from ground zero where Muslim terrorists murdered nearly 3000 people in the name of Allah on September 11, 2001-and it's leading Imam, who conducts sensitivity training for the FBI, has reportedly blamed Christians for starting mass attacks on civilians. WHAT?? I thought the attackers were Muslim devotees? Since when did Christians get into the picture?
"Only in New YOrk City is this possible" said Daisy Kahn executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, or ASMA as she told a magazine reporter. Kahn is the wife of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of ASMA.
So who is Feisal Abdul Rauf?
According to postings on Jihad Watch:
Rauf is imam of a mosque that is just 12 blocks from where the WTC center stood. He is also the imam of the Islamic Center of Long Island in Westbury, 835 Brush Hollow Road. Larry Cohler-Esses of the Daily News wrote about anti-Christian, anti-Jewish textbooks coming out of the Crescent School, same address as mosque. When pressed about the hateful content of the textbooks, "What Islam is All About", Rauf said the books should be changed. They haven't been to date. Yahiya Emerick is the publisher of the books and a teacher at the school. Ghazi Khankan of CAIR is also at this mosque, along with Faroque Khan, head of NY American Muslim Alliance and affiliated with Islamic Society of North America. This is the same mosque Congressman Peter King had cut ties with after 9/11 due to disparaging statements they made about all of us. http://www.jihadwatch.org/dhimmiwatch/archives/001246.php
MIM:Abdul Rauf,who espouses the same ideology as the hijackers, was the Muslim cleric who spoke at the interfaith memorial for victims of the attacks which he blames on the West. He also heads the American Sufi Association as a front to draw attention from his radical Islamist activities. Many Islamist clerics in the West are using Sufism (which is considered a warm fuzzy interpretation of Islam) to hide their radical agendas. Like Rauf, they alternate between propagating the destruction of the West while presenting themselves as "peacemakers" who convince non Muslims that Islam is actually the "perfection" Judaism and Christianity i.e. becoming a convert is actually "reverting" to the "perfect version" of of one's former religion.
You can read more about ASMA, it's backers, and it's goals for America by following this link to Militant Islam Monitor. There you can read a comprehensive essay on the ASMA and what it means to the citizens of America.
And then you can answer the question: Should a mosque be built at 9/11 ground zero?
