Ground Zero Mosque – Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf:"Moving Mosque Would Endanger Americans"

Ground Zero Mosque – Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf – being interviewed by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien.

Two things really stood out in the interview. The first was the irony of Imam Rauf at one point lecturing on the importance of the “Separation of Church and State.” Are you kidding? Islam is all about complete control of both church and state! In fact, Islam – wherever it is the dominant religion – seeks to impose Sharia Law on the public.

“If we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse.”

Moving the project to another location would strengthen Islamist radicals’ ability to recruit followers and will likely increase violence against Americans, the imam said.

The second thing that stood out was Imam Rauf’s justification now for not moving the mosque to another site. He said if they do, Americans will come under attack overseas because of the anger in the Muslim world. In other words, now he is contending they must build the mosque in order to keep Americans safe!

The man who continues to talk about healing and building bridges has thrown down the gauntlet. He created this entire situation by demanding that his mega-mosque be built in this exact location, despite the legitimate concerns of families of lost heroes whom he claims to care about. And now that the opposition of this mosque has fully engaged and has successfully swayed a vast majority of Americans to their side, he tells an international audience that if his plans don’t go forward, America’s national security will be at risk.

It could be that the Imam’s threats, delivered in calm even tones, might end up doing more for the case against his mosque than any rally in the streets could ever do. And given Mr. Rauf’s knowledge of the irrational and violent nature of the most radical practitioners of his faith, one has to challenge his judgement in even proposing this project in the first place.

Wild Thing's comment........

The Imam was THREATENING us on CNN. He says he cannot move his mosque because it is a “national security” issue...that if “he changes his mind now, the Muslim WORLD will will be worse than the cartoon issue”.

It’s his way or ...death to America. That’s what he is telling us!

They see weakness in America.

They see everyone from the AG, Petraeus, Hillary, and many many celebrities all trying to get Americans diverted away from the International Koran burn-off come 9/11.

Islam can not be bargained with, it won’t tire, it will never stop coming at us.

As Ann Coulter stated: the only thing that wouldn’t embolden the enemy is a complete surrender to Shariah law.

We are seeing conservatives, are fighting to protect their koran and religion - not the Bible or the US no...the koran and islam... These people are very bright and they are playing us so well. We are definitely loosing the argument.

Please notice too that this Imam is using the words General Petraeus used.

He says he cannot move his mosque because it is a “national security” issue...that if “he changes his mind now, the Muslim WORLD will will be worse than the cartoon issue”.

The Mosque does not even exist right now. So he himself is causing the National Security issue.

If Islam was a religion of peace and Muslims are a peaceful people, why would any American be in danger?

Now we find out that moving the location of a Mosque or burning a Koran by a small church in Florida causes worldwide concern. We have to face it, terrorism is achieving its goals and they're winning.

Islam is a source of government with its own legislative, executive, enforcement,and judicial branches, all cloaked as a religion. Its main teachings are those of intolerance and oppression. If you don't agree with Islamic riles, pay the tax or you'll be killed. I wonder when the US will stand up to these bigots.

Two words: BRING IT!

Blackmail and threats now? Didn't he know this would happen when the controversy first started? Why bring it up now? BECAUSE we're showing our willingness to back down and bow to Islam. Strange how the murder of Christians and Jews and the destruction of churches and tenples in Islamic countries seems to go un-noticed -- maybe we need to start the same threats of "violence in the streets" against muslims every time they commit an outrage against us in their benighted countries.

Peace my ass. I just saw a video of muslims burning Christians '''alive'''.

Screw Rauf and his veiled threats. I hope the pastor from Florida says "Back to Plan A!" after dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood-loving, dissembling Tony-Soprano-wanna-be bum.
