Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is chairman of the Cordoba Initiative, a plan to build a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero, site of the 9/11 Islamic terror attack. His only goal is to advance the spread of Islam and the implementation of sharia (Islamic law) worldwide.
Rauf had written in a 2004 book that “the U.S. Constitution is sharia compliant…The American Constitution and system of governance uphold the core principles of Islamic law.” He says the “American political structure is Shariah -compliant” ‘since Muslim jurists over the centuries have’ “defined five areas of life” ‘to be protected by Islamic law-life, mind, religion, property, and family. Only two further actions could render the U.S. more Islamic than it is already.'” (America would be compliant only if those five areas are part of Islamic sharia law. It isn’t.)
Imam Rauf suggests:
“[inviting voices of all religions to join the dialogue in shaping the nation’s practical life. [and allowing] religious communities more leeway to judge themselves according to their own laws.”
In this case, sharia criminal law in America would mean: stoning to death for adultery, death for criticizing Muhammad and the Quran. No first amendment rights.
Rauf’s goal is to make sharia legal in the United States. The same efforts are ongoing in Canada and in England, where English Anglican clerics are often physically attacked and taunted with shouts that Islam will replace Christianity.
Rauf’s “assertion’s, however, merely fulfill the Muslim Brotherhood doctrine of flexibility-adapting to each and every environment…in which the brothers eventually hope to force Islamic law upon the masses. Rauf’s claims starkly represent taqiyya, the Islamic practice of deception, to further theocratic and essentially fascist Islamic advances. And the additional ‘leeway’ Rauf seeks for intra-community religious-law enforcement is a thinly veiled attempt to impose shariah more widely in the U.S., in contravention of the U.S. Constitution.” Read the complete article on Rauf’s assault on America.
The 13-story mosque planned for a site just two blocks from New York’s ground zero would be another marker in Islam’s goal toward completing world domination under sharia.
From the early days on, when the Muslim army captured other lands, their symbol of authority was made by converting churches and synagogues into mosques. “In Damascus, Syria, the church of St. John is now known as the Umayyad Mosque.”
“In Gaza, the Great Mosque of Gaza was originally a Christian church. In Turkey, the Hagia Sophia Church was converted in 1453 into a mosque and remained so until 1935, when it became a museum. Indeed, the Ottoman Turks converted into mosques practically all churches and monasteries in the territories they conquered. (The mosques of war, Victor Sharpe, 08/13/10)
“There is…the Islamic policy of establishing mosques as beachheads with interconnected networks.”
“A mosque, totally unlike a church or synagogue, serves the function of orchestrating and mandating every aspect of ‘life’ in a Muslim community from the religious, to the political, to the economic, to the social, to the military. In Islam, religion and life are not separate. They are ‘indivisible.'”
“A mosque is the symbol of the establishment of an Islamic authority, and an announcement of the beginning of the ‘rightful restoration’ of the land according to Islamic claims that the ‘whole world is a mosque,’ and is echoed in Muhammad’s words, “the whole world has been declared unto me a mosque.”
“Therefore it is a matter of ‘restoring’ rather than ‘claiming’ the land to Islam, as any land not in current submission is at virtual war with Islam, and must be brought ‘back’ according to the Qur’anic version of history.”
As the documentation confirms, Rauf wants to have sharia law in the United States, first for Muslims and, ultimately, America. Do you want a current lesson in sharia?
Right now there is a woman in Iran who is awaiting the death penalty for adultery. So far worldwide protests have had no effect on the Iranian regime. The standard method of execution is for a hole to be dug and the prisoner buried up to the chest. Then a group of citizens pick up rocks and throw them at the prisoner until an official declares the “criminal” dead.
There is no free speech when the topic is Islam or the prophet Muhammad. A long list defines what speech can get you the death penalty under sharia:
(1) Reviling Allah or his Messenger; (2) being sarcastic about ‘Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction ,His promise, or His threat’;–(6) denying that Allah intended ‘the Prophet’s message…to be the religion followed by the entire world.’

Apostates, those who leave Islam, can receive the death penalty. A recently publicized former Muslim and member of Hamas rejected Islam and converted to Christianity. He now travels in the U.S. with bodyguards.
Mosab Yousef, the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, founder of Hamas, announced that he had converted to Christanity and condemed Islam as an evil force in the world. Before that, he became a spy for Israel’s Shin Bet and worked undercover as a member of Hamas.
GQ interviewed Yousef about his new book ‘Son of Hamas’ and asked him:
“We often hear President Obama, like George W. Bush before him, say that Islam isn’t our enemy, that it’s a religion of peace-that it’s violent extremists we’re in conflict with. Do you reject that?”
“Absolutely, I do. That is blasphemy. That is a lack of knowledge. U.S. Presidents say such things because of diplomacy, because Islam also exists in America, and they must respect people’s beliefs, respect the constitution. What I’m saying is the problem is there, in the Koran. That even if there is a good side of Islam, at the end of the day it serves evil.”
(So Presidents Bush and Obama lied to the American people, putting us in danger from attacks within our country in order to not offend Muslims and have our oil cut off. Just make sure you search that 80-year-old Irish grandmother before she gets on that plane.)
Those Muslims who rejected their religion did so after carefully studying the Quran and the history of Muhammad and Islam. They decided, like Yousef, that it is simply evil. But GQ challenged him on this:
“But aren’t there two sides to Christianity, as well? …Aren’t we really talking about the human failing here, not tied to a particular faith?”
“…This is what I’m trying to avoid. I point to the book, to the God. I am not pointing to the people. I judge and compare books and gods. In Christianity, it’s clear that the god we worship is equal to love. The bible says, ‘God is love.” The god we worship was sacrificed, crucified on the cross, tortured, spit on, and was still forgiving. This is our highest example.
“The god of Islam tells his people, “Beat your wives. Go kill Christians and Jews.” This is in the Koran; it has been for 1400 years. Their god tells them to kill everybody who doesn’t believe in the god of the Koran. The problem is ideological-it’s not a people problem. Now, most Muslims don’t obey the order to kill infidels. This is why I say Muslims have more morality than their god. To be honest with you, I’m amazed at how Muslims keep their humanity after reading the Koran.”
Yousef’s message to all Palestinians: “You’re worshipping a god (Allah) who is sending you to your destruction.”
Imam Rauf’s organization, the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) has been a long time neighbor of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). His ASMA HQ has a suite “adjacent to the suite housing the New York City chapter office of CAIR, the U.S. representative of Hamas. CAIR is an Unindicted Co-conspirator and/or Joint Venturer of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a supporter of terrorist groups.
CAIR, like Imam Rauf, has nothing but evil intent towards America, including bringing sharia to our nation. In 1998, CAIR’s co-founder Omar Ahmed said:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.” San Ramon Valley Herald, July 4, 1998.
The case against building the “Ground Zero Mosque” is clear:
“The rationale of the sponsors is that acts of terrorism are being carried out by misguided ‘radicals’ rather than true Muslims and that as a consequence, Islam itself has been victimized and defamed and needs to be defended. Their solution is to appear to decry all ‘radicalism,’ and to take the bold symbolic act of erecting a 13 story Mosque-ostensibly representing true Islam-on the site itself, in their words, to ‘bridge and heal this divide.’ (*)
“So, if allowed to be built, this mosque would consolidate, solidify, and embody a fallacious and pernicious interpretation of what really happened at the world Trade Center on September 11, 2001.”
“If built, the Ground Zero Mosque will be the most influential sign and symbol of Islamic authority in the Western World.”
(* What is a mosque? An interview with Sam Solomon, Jerry Gordon. New English Review.)
News about Islam and Sharia:
Sharia has gained a toehold… in Great Britain, “where five sharia courts have been established to settle certain disputes among Muslims, with the government’s blessing.
And Oklahoma is poised to become the first state in the nation to ban state judges from relying on Islamic law known as sharia when deciding cases.
Dutch MP Geert Wilders Forming an International Anti-Islamist Alliance.
“Wilders is due to stand trial in October on hate speech charges stemming from his short Internet film “Fitna,”which denounced the Quran as a fascist book that inspires terrorism.” There is no freedom of speech in the European Union and persons charged with legitimate criticism of certain groups can be sentenced to 3 years in prison. Individual nations can increase the penalty if they so choose. Brigitte Bardot (France) has been arrested 5 times and paid fines for criticizing Muslims.
Watch this 6 minute video on the Muslim plan for a mosque near ground zero, by Pat Condell. Excellent.
This 9 minute video covers a Muslim demonstration, one of several that took place recently across Europe. They were threatening the rest of the world:
“London: We will never give up…until you are subdued to the law of sharia.” “We will bring sharia to your doorstep. We will take the White House. We will take South America. Crusaders go to hell. Sharia for Europe.” I guess these are the peaceful Muslims.
Islam and its true believers are a real and present danger to America and the world. We are left alone to deal with this continuing threat to our survival, both short term and long term. Get involved, like the representative in Oklahoma, and work for legislation to block Muslim efforts to insert sharia into our legal system. And support those who are working to stop this “in your face” Ground Zero mosque project, designed to humiliate America.
Our government is not with us. As you know, our leaders refuse to carry out their oaths of office regarding illegal immigration. Add that to their plan for open borders and a multicutural, multilingual society with groups hostile to Americans and what you have is a nation destined for the “dust bin” of history.
