Appearing in the New York Times of 07 September was an article by Muslim Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the main honcho in the Cordoba House mosque-building matter and recent returnee from a swing through the Middle East, with Uncle Sam paying the tab. This is part of his screed: [I]I therefore call upon all Americans to rise to this challenge. Let us commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by pausing to reflect and meditate and tone down the vitriol and rhetoric that serves only to strengthen the radicals and weaken our friends’ belief in our values[/I].
Yeah…sure. Whose values? How unspeakably self-serving! It’s like commemorating the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, with the rusting sunken USS Arizona, a coffin today for hundreds of sailors as a reminder, except that at Ground Zero, the reminder will be the Cordoba House, sitting on the ashes of some 3,000 Americans. This is the epitome of obscenity.
Reflect and meditate, he said,
Commemorate the dead,
And quell the rhetoric – so mean…
Praise Allah at the scene.
The vitriol…well, it must go,
With Christians all aglow –
There’s nothing radical at all…
Three thousand lives…so SMALL.
Our values…they must be preserved,
And Allah praised…well served,
But Christians must be mollified…
Until they all have died.
With strong belief, do not be weak,
Let Muslims chaos wreak,
As values are immortalized…
With murder idolized.
So build the mosque and build it well,
No martyrs found in hell,
Teach there the martyrs how to kill
The infidel at will.
[tune: Amazing Grace, perfectly fitting!]
Is this too harsh? Does it denigrate all Muslims? NO! It merely points up the fact that in the Islamic holy book, the Koran, is the demand that Muslims kill the infidel when and where they can. Muslims do not deny this, even the “peaceful” Muslims. They can’t because that universal fatwa is extant and can’t be changed.
Throughout the 90s, the fatwa was exercised on this country – the first WTC bombing; Khobar Towers bombing; American embassies bombed in Africa; the USS Kohl. That wasn’t enough, so in the name of Allah and courtesy of al Qaeda the second WTC bombing took place on 9/11 and just last year in the name of Allah as screamed before the fact, Major Hasan gunned down 13 souls at Ft. Hood. He has yet to be tried after nearly a year, so diligent is this administration in actually buying him time.
Imam Rauf will not deny that the fatwa is in force. He can’t, most likely because he would then be the current U.S. incarnation of Salmon Rushdie, with a bulls-eye on his back. Yeah…on his BACK. That’s the way of the terrorists. They kill as cowards and kill women and children – even their own – as if they are frying chickens…in the name of Allah.
Imam Rauf should denounce the jihadists, who actually control his religion. He will say he’s not in favor of all the blood-letting. Most Muslims are not but neither he nor they can lift a finger to stop it. The reason is simple enough, to wit, that the objective of the Muslims who hold supreme power throughout the world is the conquering of the world…nothing less.
The main impediment to this goal is the United States. The three million or so Muslims in this country should band together and form their own version of Islam, probably with Imam Rauf in the lead. After all, Islam is already fragmented into the Sunnis, Shiites and at least seven branches. The U.S. branch could focus on “peace.”
Won’t happen, of course! More’s the pity. This is what Rauf said to Soledad O’Brien on TV: If we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse. The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. … And if we do move, it will strengthen the argument of the radicals to recruit, their ability to recruit, and their increasing aggression and violence against our country. In other words, Rauf is holding the USA hostage. Disgusting.
