Mark Levin Interviews Dr. Zuhdi Jasser About New Clip Of Radical Imam Rauf P2

Mark Levin Interviews Dr. Zuhdi Jasser About New Clip Of Radical Imam Rauf P3

M. Zuhdi Jasser is a former U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander. He is the President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy based in Phoenix, Arizona. AIFD, founded in 2003, is a think tank and activist Muslim organization which provides a platform for an American Muslim movement to separate spiritual Islam from the political. AIFD seeks to build coalitions of Muslims which not only reject the means of terror as an anathema to Islam but more globally reject the ends of the Islamic state which Islamists seek. AIFD believes that the only way to genuinely wage the contest of ideas and counter the root cause of terrorism is for Muslims to be given ample opportunity for debate between one another– especially within the mosques. AIFD believes that the outcome of these debates will ultimately be the primary method to defeat the ideology of political Islam which ultimately inspires radical Islamism. Dr. Jasser believes that it is essential for devotional Muslims to lead the ideological war against militant Islamism. This Muslim led effort seeks to establish the synergy of Americanism and our Constitutional democracy with a post-modern, pluralistic Islam.

Dr. Jasser is a respected physician currently in private practice in Phoenix Arizona specializing in internal medicine and nuclear cardiology. His highest military award is the Meritorious Service Medal. He recently served as the President of the Arizona Medical Association (ArMA) until June 2007. Dr. Jasser has served on the Maricopa County Board of Health since 2005. As ArMA President in early 2007, Dr. Jasser formed and now chairs a statewide Disaster Preparedness Task Force whose primary mission has been to inform and engage all Arizona physicians in disaster preparedness. Dr. Jasser chairs the bioethics committee and teaches nuclear cardiology in a major Phoenix hospital. He has been active in a number of interfaith efforts in Arizona including the founding of a Jewish-Muslim dialogue group in 2000 called the Children of Abraham.

He also was featured in the controversial PBS film, Islam v Islamists produced by ABG Films, Inc. This film was initially banned from distribution on PBS stations as originally intended in the Crossroads program but was then aired in a limited distribution to some affiliates. It received national acclaim in its release on the Fox News Channel in October 2007.

Dr. Jasser has also been an advisor on Islamic affairs to the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands. During his last visit in December 2007, he led an AIFD program on “Citizenship and Democracy” with Dutch Muslim youth, media, and political leadership. The program focused on strategies in countering the threat of political Islam to the west while engaging anti-Islamist Muslims.

Dr. Jasser was honored in October 2007 as a “Defender of the Home Front” at the annual Keeper of the Flame Dinner of the Center for Security Policy. He was also one of five moderate Muslims who met with Admiral Michael Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to discuss the “Contest of Ideas with the Muslim World” at the Hudson Institute on December 5, 2007. In January 2008, Dr. Jasser was presented with the 2007 Director’s Community Leadership Award by the Phoenix office of the FBI.

Dr. Jasser was also recently featured in The Third Jihad, produced by PublicScope Films. Dr. Jasser narrates this documentary about the threat of radical Islamism to the West which was recently released and will be shown and featured internationally in 2009.

Dr. Jasser is a regular columnist and contributing editor for and Hudson New York. He appears frequently on the Fox News Channel and CNN appearing regularly on the Glenn Beck Show. Dr. Jasser has been published in the National Review, Arizona Republic, Middle East Quarterly, Dallas Morning News, Washington Times, and Beliefnet. He is a frequent national radio and television commentator and featured speaker about Islam, Islamism, moderate Muslims, and counterterrorism.

See interviews here

1st Interview today:

Chris Jansing: He is being called the Bin laden of the Internet. Radical Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born citizen, is suspected of helping to plan the failed Christmas day airline bombing and is linked to the deadly Fort Hood shootings. He is on the US kill or capture list and has been cultivating a growing list of followers on the Internet. I am joined now by terrorism expert Steve Emerson, executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism. So Steve, al-Awlaki has all of these sermons that he preaches on the Internet. How effective are they and what is his message?

Steve Emerson: Well they are very effective. One, he speaks fluent Arabic and he speaks fluent English, so he has basically opened up his availability to recruit a whole new generation of Western English speaking Muslims in the United States and Europe. In fact about five of the operations or plots last year in the United States by Islamic terrorists were inspired or directed directly by Awlaki. He became an inspirational leader in the last 5 years and then an operational leader in the last 2 years. And his Internet videos have been very effective. He knows the language. He’s a young man; he’s only 39 years old. Born in the United States, went to Colorado State, then moved to Yemen in 2002. Was connected to the 9/11 conspiracy but not really known how much. A bad guy, the first US individual targeted for assassination by the United States.

Jansing: So would it be fair to say because he lived here, he studied here, he gets what it is works essentially when he is making these sermons?

Emerson: I’ve seen at least a dozen of his sermons. I’ve seen his comments on Al Jazeera when he defended his email traffic with Major Nidal Hasan who you know killed 13 people at Fort Hood. Hasan had been in email contact with Awlaki. There are 18 email exchanges and in one of them Awlaki said it is mandatory to kill US soldiers, and that’s exactly what Hasan did at Fort Hood. He has also inspired others to carry out attacks including the Christmas day would-be bomber. So he is a rising star. He is a rock star in Al Qaeda. And he is also safer in Yemen than let’s say al Qaeda leaders in Pakistan and Afghanistan because the US is not operating drones in Yemen.

Jansing: Let me ask you about Somalia where dozens of people were killed in a bombing attack on a hotel in Mogadishu. The group Al-Shabaab has been linked to that. Who are these folks and how much of a threat?

Emerson: Well Al-Shabaab comprises an estimated number of about 400 members. They’re not as large as let’s say Al Qaeda but they are growing. Number two is the Americans disproportionately are involved with Al Shabaab including a young man from Alabama who converted to Islam. His name is Omar Hammami and he’s a top official. Shabaab merged with Al Qaeda in 2008 and is now reaching out and carrying out attacks overseas including Uganda – well that’s next door – but also coming back to the United States to carry out attacks. Minnesota has been especially a great recruiting place for Al Shabaab, where more than two dozen American Muslims have been arrested or indicted for joining Al Shabaab.

Jansing: Steve Emerson, it’s always good to have you on. Thank you Steve.

Emerson: You bet.

2nd Interview today:

Contessa Brewer: The CIA now views Al Qaeda in Yemen as a bigger security threat than the core organization in Pakistan. The Obama administration may start targeting cells in Yemen according to the Washington Post. And who is living in living but radical Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born citizen who is suspected of helping to plan the failed Christmas day airline bombing. He is linked to the deadly Fort Hood shootings, and USA Today says he has been dubbed Bin laden of the Internet. He’s on the United States kill or capture list and has been cultivating a growing list of followers on the Internet. And he’s not the only American waging jihad overseas against the United States. Terror analyst Steve Emerson joins me. Steve, good to see you.

Emerson: Hi Contessa.

Brewer: Are we growing our own Islamic terrorists here in America?

Emerson: Well I think there has been a growth here and I think it’s because one, the availability of the Internet where anyone can see these radical messages and get radicalized. I also think some of the Islamist groups in the United States spread a message that America is at war with Islam or that there is a war against Islam by the US. That is the single most radicalizing factor incentivizing young Muslims to carry out terrorist attacks. And it’s done overseas. That’s what inspires Anwar Awlaki. His messages are replete with that message, that there is war against Islam, you must avenge Islam by carrying out attacks against the US. So I think here in the US we’ve seen an increase. We’ve also seen an increase in Europe as well, and I think that’s largely because the availability of English language imams and English language Internet videos available.

Brewer: All right so when we’re talking about how easy it is to become radicalized in the United States, you’ve got to look at this Somali Al Qaeda-linked group Al Shabaab, which is based in Mogadishu but headed by a white American boy.

Emerson: You know it’s pretty amazing, Omar Hammami who was born in Alabama, white, converted to Islam. He’s only 28-years-old, and then went to Somalia 2 years ago and is now a top ranking official in the Al Shabaab movement. In the United States the cluster of Shabaab headquarters, if we can call them headquarters, is in Minneapolis where there have been the most arrests and recruits toward Al Shabaab. There’s also individuals that have gone to Pakistan, like Shazad, who tried to explode the van last May, and there also have been individuals like Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter, who was inspired and directed by Anwar Awlaki. I think we’re in for an increase of attacks here in the United States as well as overseas.

Brewer: And our investigative producer for NBC, Bob Windrom, tells me that counterterrorism officials tell him there are 50 Americans linked with Al-Shabaab, which is they estimate far more than any other Al Qaeda organization. I want to turn to a different issue now because we’re watching this breaking news from Iraq where all of a sudden coordinated attacks on the security forces there in Iraq, so far more than 45 people have been killed. And you’re looking at coordinated attacks against the army, police. What does this say about the situation in Iraq now that US combat forces have left?

Emerson: Contessa, I think this is a deliberate attempt to show that there is a void created by the withdrawal of American forces. Now we don’t know whether these attacks were carried out by Ba’athists, by Al Qaeda or even by Shiites inspired by Iran. I suspect the latter. What I think is going on here is that Iran is going to fill the vacuum created by the absence of US forces, and that ultimately Iraq will fall under the umbrella of Iranian influence as will UAE and Saudi Arabia over time because there won’t be US forces there to protect them. This is a very big dilemma for the United States.

Brewer: All right, it’s good to see you today. I appreciate your time.

Emerson: You got it.

Yellow Cab Chicago requested today that a fleet of taxis remove controversial anti-Islam ads.

The ads, sponsored by the group Stop of Islamization of America, appeared on 25 Chicago cabs this summer.

Beside pictures of young women who were allegedly killed by their Muslim fathers for refusing an Islamic marriage, dating a non-Muslim or becoming “too Americanized” was the message: “Is your family threatening you?” The placards also displayed the Web address

Michael Levine, the CEO of Yellow Cab Chicago, said the signs were offensive to the city’s taxi drivers, an estimated half of whom are Muslim.

The ads were carried by independent Yellow Cab affiliates, Levine said in a statement. The fleet owner was paid by a company that specializes in advertising atop taxis.

When Yellow Cab learned of the placards three weeks ago, it called the advertising company and asked to have the ads removed, according to Levine. Yellow Cab was told they were taken down, but found out Tuesday that three ads were still running atop taxis.

“They will be removed,” Levine said. “Yellow Cab does not regularly approve advertising content carried by our affiliates, but we do reserve the right to ask them to remove ads that offend either the drivers or the public.”

Although the ads appeared to offer a safe haven for young women who want to leave Islam, critics contend the signs stoked fear among passengers and passers-by about the way many of the city’s taxi drivers worship.

Pamela Geller, a leader of Stop the Islamization of America, previously told the Tribune that Muslims are increasingly taking over schools, financial institutions and the workplace. Geller said the ads were directed at “Muslims girls in trouble, living in fear of their lives, struggling to find resources to help.”

Geller, who is also one of the leaders against building the Park51 mosque near the site of the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

The Council on American Islamic Relations considered legal action regarding the ads. It chose not to after a story in Sunday’s Tribune “shed light” on the controversy, said Ahmed Rehab, executive director of CAIR-Chicago.

“It’s long overdue,” Rehab said of the ads’ removal. “These ads are sponsored by a notoriously bigoted anti-Muslim group. It’s a classic case of false advertising.”

State testmakers played favorites when quizzing high-schoolers on world religions — giving Islam and Buddhism the kid-gloves treatment while socking it to Christianity, critics say.

Teachers complain that the reading selections from the Regents exam in global history and geography given last week featured glowing passages pertaining to Muslim society but much more critical essay excerpts on the subject of Christianity.

“There should have been a little balance in there,” said one Brooklyn teacher who administered the exam but did not want to be identified.

“To me, this was offensive because it’s just so inappropriate and the timing of it was piss-poor,” he added, referring to the debate over the plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero.

The most troubling passage came from Daniel Roselle’s “A World History: A Cultural Approach,” observers said.

The passage reads: “Wherever they went, the Moslems [sic] brought with them their love of art, beauty and learning. From about the eighth to the eleventh century, their culture was superior in many ways to that of western Christendom.”

Meanwhile, an excerpt listing the common procedures used by Christian friars to introduce the religion in Latin America stated that “idols, temples and other material evidences of paganism [were] destroyed,” and “Christian buildings [were] often constructed on sites of destroyed native temples” — and built with free Indian labor, to boot.

“I can see why some people might see these questions as skewed,” said Mark MacWilliams, a religious-studies professor at St. Lawrence University in upstate Canton. “Why does the exam seem to have only documents that portray Islam as a religion of peace, civilization and refinement, while it includes documents about Christianity that show it was anything but peaceful in the Spanish conquest of the Americas?”

At the same time, MacWilliams criticized the presentation of Hernando Cortes’ conquest of Mexico — which he said portrayed him as a “choirboy” rather than a “conquistador.”

“It’s quite a whitewash,” he said.

Some other religious-studies experts contacted by The Post said they didn’t see what the fuss was all about.

“[The] selections seem about equal in terms of being historically/culturally focused, all relatively positive about the contributions made by each religion as it was introduced into various societies,” wrote Barbara Sproul, an associate professor of religion at Hunter College in Manhattan.

Yet Michael Dobkowski, chair of Religious Studies at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in upstate Geneva, asserted that it was only Christianity for which both positive and negative aspects were highlighted.

“Some [essays] suggest a kind of Christian triumphalism and the desire to convert the other that is not present in the treatment of Islam,” he said. “My impression is that there is certainly a divergence of approaches and impressions that should not appear in a Regents exam of this caliber.”

State education officials said that every effort had been made to present accurate historical information through the excerpts.

They said the questions had been developed over a four-year period and require students to use their own knowledge of social studies to produce answers.

They added that they weren’t aware of any complaints about the exam.

The Muslim reading:

* “Wherever they went, the Moslems [sic] brought with them their love of art, beauty and learning. From about the eighth to the eleventh century, their culture was superior in many ways to that of western Christendom.

* “Some of the finest centers of Moslem life were established in Spain. In Cordova, the streets were solidly paved, while at the same time in Paris people waded ankle-deep in mud after a rain. Cordovan public lamps lighted roads for as far as ten miles; yet seven hundred years later there was still not a single public lamp in London!”

The Christian reading:

Common Procedures used by Friars in Converting Areas in Spanish America:

* “Idols, temples and other material evidences of paganism destroyed.”

* “Christian buildings often constructed on sites of destroyed native temples in order to symbolize and emphasize the substitution of one religion by the other.”

* “Indians supplied construction labor without receiving payment.”

* “In a converted community, services and fiestas were regularly held in the church building.”

OH MY!!! Can you imagine what would happen if we blocked the streets just ONE day a week in worship!!
America better get on her knees FAST … ‘cause they are taking over!!

A Christian Nation cannot put up a Christmas scene of the baby Jesus in a public place, but the Muslims can stop normal traffic every Friday afternoon by worshiping in the streets… Something is happening in America that is reminiscent of what is happening in Europe. This is Political Correctness gone crazy…

This is an accurate picture of every Friday afternoon in several locations throughout NYC where there are mosques with a large number of Muslims that cannot fit into the mosque – They fill the surrounding streets, facing east for a couple of hours between about 2 & 4 p.m. – Besides this one at 42nd St & Madison Ave, there is another, even larger group, at 94th St & 3rd Ave, etc., etc. – Also, I presume, you are aware of the dispute over building another “high rise” Mosque a few blocks from “ground zero” – With regard to that one, the “Imam” refuses to disclose where the $110 million dollars to build it is coming from and there is a lawsuit filed to force disclosure of that information – Just some facts FYI – But then, you have your own troubles with the “immigration” problem and the new AZ law –

November can’t come soon enough!!!

Pissed off yet?!

This is in New York City on Madison Avenue, not in France or the Middle East or Yemen or Kenya.

Is there a message here??? Yes, there is, and they are claiming America for allah. if we don’t wake up soon, we are going to “politically correct” ourselves right out of our own country!

Believe it or not but this could be your town very, very soon if Americans don’t stop it NOW!!!

Are Muslims permitted to lie?

Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should be truthful to each other. But to the unbeliever “the infidels”, it is a different story.

Is it really true that Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers (non-Muslims)?

It’s screwy I know but YES, it is. The religion Islam allows Muslims to lie & deceive non-Muslims “the infidels”!!

There are two forms of lying that are permitted under “certain circumstances” called: taqiyyah and kitman.

Taqiyyah (or; Al-Taqiyya):
Saying/writing something that isn’t true.

Lying by omission (pick and choose what looks good and stay quiet about the rest).

Taqiyyah and kitman or “holy hypocrisy” has been diffused throughout Arabic culture for over fourteen hundred years since it was developed by Shiites as a means of defence and concealment of beliefs against Sunni unbelievers.


Sura (16:106) – Establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie.

Sura (3:28) – This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.”

Sura (40:28) – A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must “hide his faith” among those who are not believers.

Sura (2:225) – “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts”

Sura (66:2) – “Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths”

Bukhari (52:270) – Recounts the murder of a poet, Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, at Muhammad’s insistence. The men who volunteered for the assassination used dishonesty to gain Ka’b’s trust, pretending that they had turned against Muhammad. This drew the victim out of his fortress, whereupon he was brutally slaughtered despite putting up a ferocious struggle for his life.

Bukhari (49:857) – “He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar.” Lying is permitted when the end justifies the means.

Bukhari (84:64-65) – Speaking from a position of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is permissible in order to deceive an “enemy.”

From Islamic Law:
Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746) – “[it is] obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory… Whether the purpose is war, settling a disagreement, or gaining the sympathy of a victim legally entitled to retaliate… it is not unlawful to lie when any of these aims can only be attained through lying. But is is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression…”

~Much more…

Islam mandates deception [taqiyya] when Muslims deal with non-Muslims. Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers if the lie is for the protection of Islam or the furthering of Islamic goals and objectives. In the cause of Islamic expansionism Muslims falsely inform non-Muslims that: Islam is a “religion of peace”, the Quran mandates pluralism of religions, “jihad” is only about an “inner spiritual struggle”, unprovoked violence against non-Muslims is un-Islamic, immigrant Muslims wish to fully integrate into Western countries by adopting democratic principles instead of Sharia Law, Muhammad was a man of peace, etc. None of these things are true. Taqiyya is not about truth. Taqiyya is about deception — lulling Western people into a false sense of security, while, in reality, Islam directs Muslim immigrants to “appear integrated” while actually living as a state-within-a-state… UNTIL THEY TAKE OVER via violent jihad. Europe, be warned!

People need to understand that most of the Islamic websites on the Internet created by Muslims are practicing; Taqiyyah and Kitman. Taqiyya and Kitman are deception in Islamic warfare and the intention to deceive unbelievers (and Muslims) about Islam.

How many times have you not witnessed that Islamic spokesmen will rarely condemn a specific act of terrorism, honour murder, etc… and direct questions will be skillfully evaded.

Islamic spokesmen often practice a form of taqiyyah defined in psychology as “cognitive denial” by repetitive and extreme requests for “evidence” and “proof” of alleged terrorist acts, which they know cannot be disclosed.

Islamic spokesman will deny a claim or proposition in absolute terms. For example: “It is impossible to be a Muslim and a terrorist”, which is false, and “Islam forbids suicide”, which is true, but irrelevant when suicide- or martyrdom- attacks NOT are forbidden in the Qur’an.

Do the math. The 15 floors planned for the Ground Zero Mosque just don’t add up.

What’s the goal? Maybe the Imam’s goal is not simply to force a provocative “insensitivity” about 9-11 on the American public, with the help of America’s elites. Maybe the Imam’s long-term goal is to force Shariah law on the American public – of course, again, with the help of America’s elites.

Why don’t the 15 floors add up? How many floors does Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf need for the mosque portion of this triumphal Islamic command center planned for the two building sites at 45-47 Park Place in New York City? Think about it: maybe 2 floors for the mosque itself and related offices. A 3rd floor for the swimming pool, a 4th for the 500 seat auditorium, a 5th for the halal restaurant and halal culinary school, a 6th for the art studios, the childcare center and library, a 7th for the gym and basketball court. Add an 8th floor for miscellaneous storage and offices. And then add a 9th floor for the September 11 memorial, an after-thought that was recently added to the Imam’s plan, although that may in fact be more of a room off to one side than a whole floor.

That leaves six mystery floors empty – or dedicated to other activities. Six floors – that’s a lot of offices, a lot of employees, maybe more than half of the 150 full-time and 500 part-time jobs the Imam says he’ll bring to Lower Manhattan. What are Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s plans for those six mystery floors?

Follow the Shariah Index Project to solve the puzzle of the 6 mystery floors: We found two hidden websites with copiously deleted information, all about the Imam’s Cordoba Institute Shariah Index Project. For reference, here’s the Imam’s most recent hidden website (also available here as a pdf). And here’s the Imam’s earlier hidden website (also available here as a pdf). The information on those websites – information that the Imam tried to hide with a new whitewashed version – suggests that the six mystery floors of the Ground Zero Mosque will be dedicated to the Imam’s long-term goal: the Shariah Index Project, designed to benchmark Shariah compliance, to distribute Shariah propaganda, and to enforce Shariah law in America and worldwide.

Drawing from those hidden webpages and other sites, we’ve constructed a timeline for the Shariah Index Project and a partial list of Rauf’s partners in the Project. In Part 2, we’ll reveal the disturbing background and views of those partners. And in Part 3, we’ll present the bottom line – how this all ties together as a historic Islamist effort to market and to enforce Shariah in America, starting from Ground Zero.

Numbered Documents, for everyone’s convenience! Below, from the hidden websites, is the evidence Rauf tried to cover-up. We’ve even numbered the Shariah Index Project documents he mentioned, to make it easy for the Imam and his staff – for example, Courtney Erwin, attorney and director of the Shariah Index Project and (tax exempt)corporate contact for the Cordoba Institute - to provide copies to the American public.

Courtney Erwin could end the cover-up of these documents today, given her leading role in the Shariah Index Project since its inception. Erwin, by the way, has been working in Doha (Qatar, home of jihad-supporter Sheik Qaradawi, so admired by Imam Rauf) for the past three months. She states that her team includes a “Qatari legal researcher,” presumably for ongoing work on the Shariah Index Project. She may also be working with one of the core Shariah experts partnering in the Shariah Index Project, Dr. Jasser Auda, since January 2010 an Associate Professor in the Public Policy Program, Faculty of Islamic Studies, Qatar Foundation in Qatar. (Qatar is also one of the countries Imam Rauf is scheduled to visit on his State Department-funded trip this summer.) Look for much more on Erwin and Auda in Part 2.

American citizens and their elected officials should ask Rauf, Erwin and their associates to end the Shariah Index Project cover-up, and to disclose all documents, meeting notes, emails and attendee lists from 2006 to the present day. You don’t ask, you don’t get.

For more details on August 2006 – The Planning Meeting – Meeting #1 through # 8, with much documentation & sleuthing go to:

August 2006 –December 19, 2008

~JP I would like to note two meetings in particular, for Steve Emerson has investigated the Muslim Brotherhood throughly:

November 21, 2008 – The Book Launch Celebration with the Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT- Meeting #7

The International Institute of Islamist Thought (IIIT), a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organization in Northern Virginia, met to launch the publication of an abridged edition of Rauf’s “What is Right with Islam is what is Right for America.” The meeting was chaired by IIIT Vice President Jamal Barzinji, and the publisher of the abridged edition is a group called American Muslims for Constructive Engagement (AMCE). Also promoted in that series of “Reader’s Digest Condensed Islamism”: Harvard’s Noah Feldman’s “Fall and Rise of the Islamic State,” “1) Who Speaks for Islam: By John Esposito and Dalia Mogahed. Dalia Mogahed is head of the Gallup project on Muslim public opinion, the most likely contact at Gallup for the earlier meetings on the Shariah Index Project (more on that relationship, and on the AMCE and their U.S. government backers in Part 2).

The book series, by the way, was funded by the Kingdom Foundation – as in the Alwaleed Bin Talal Kingdom Foundation of Saudi Arabia.

December 19, 2008 – Final Coordination with the Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT – Meeting #8

Rauf met with Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT leadership to discuss the Shariah Index Project (here as pdf). A key figure, Dr. Jasser Auda, met with Rauf at IIIT Headquarters in Northern Virginia. Auda has the background and the brains to be coordinating the Shariah Index Project behind the scenes from Qatar, making Rauf simply a U.S. salesman for an effort that may actually be directed by others. More on Auda in Part 2.

Let’s Review. All those numbers begin to add up:

The Ground Zero Mosque has at least 6 mystery floors. We suggest that they’ll be used by the Shariah Index Project.

The Shariah Index Project was built by at least 14 Shariah experts. We have the identities probably of 7 of them, and Rauf should reveal the other 7 right away.

The Shariah Index Project generated at least 16 documents and maybe a final book, and Rauf should release all of these – right away.

The issues at stake in the Ground Zero Mosque and the Shariah Index Project are not about Americans supporting the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom. Americans support that protection.

The issues at stake here are about Americans protecting the Constitution from Shariah-adherent groups using the protective guise of religious freedom to attack the Constitution itself – using a triumphal Ground Zero mosque as “the base” for a project to institutionalize Shariah in America.

The United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaida has of non-Muslims, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the leader of the effort to build a mosque near the site of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York, told an Australian audience in July 2005.

In a taped speech, Rauf made a number of comments that would make anyone who is not concerned about the mosque at the Ground Zero site rethink their support for the man tasked with heading the “bridge-building” center.

* “We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al Qaida has on its hands of innocent non Muslims. You may remember that the US-led sanctions against Iraq led to the death of over half a million Iraqi children. This has been documented by the United Nations. And when Madeleine Albright, who has become a friend of mine over the last couple of years, when she was Secretary of State and was asked whether this was worth it, said it was worth it.”

The United States has supported authoritarian regimes, Rauf said, and it’s understandable that people in those nations would take action into their own hands. “Collateral damage is a nice thing to put on a paper but when the collateral damage is your own uncle or cousin, what passions do these arouse? How do you negotiate? How do you tell people whose homes have been destroyed, whose lives have been destroyed, that this does not justify your actions of terrorism. It’s hard. Yes, it is true that it does not justify the acts of bombing innocent civilians, that does not solve the problem, but after 50 years of, in many cases, oppression, of US support of authoritarian regimes that have violated human rights in the most heinous of ways, how else do people get attention?”

Asked why Muslims commit suicide bombings, Rauf belittled the fanatical religious motivation of such attacks and said: “But what makes people, in my opinion, commit suicide for political reasons have their origins in politics and political objectives and worldly objectives rather than other worldly objectives. But the psychology of human beings and the brittleness of the human condition and how many of us have thought about taking our own lives, we may be jilted, had a bad relationship, you know, didn’t get tenure at the university, failed an important course, there’s a host of reason why people feel so depressed with themselves that they are willing to contemplate ending their own lives. And if you can access those individuals and deploy them for your own worldly objectives, this is exactly what has happened in much of the Muslim world. ”

On Israel, Rauf said he does not favor the plan to establish a Palestinian state along with Israel. Instead, “The differences, perhaps, may lie on whether the solution lies in the two-state solution or in a one-state solution. I believe that you had someone here recently who spoke about having a one land and two people’s solution to Israel. And I personally – my own personal analysis tells me that a one-state solution is a more coherent one than a two-state solution. So if we address the underlying issue, if we figure out a way to create condominiums, to condominiamise Israel and Palestine so you have two peoples co-existing on one state, then we have a different paradigm which will allow us to move forward.”

“And when we observe terrorism,” he said, “whether it was done by the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka or by al Qaida or whoever is behind the bombings in London or those in Madrid, we can see that they were target political objectives.

Rauf, who is on a trip to the Middle East sponsored by the State Department, gave the speech on July 12, 2005, at the University of South Australia.

* Tape 1-(IPT fact check: A report by the British government said at most only 50,000 deaths could be attributed to the sanctions, which were brought on by the actions by former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.)

* Tape 2- (IPT fact check: This is justifying acts of terrorism by blaming the United States for the oppression of Islamic regimes of their own citizens. This also ignores U.S. aid of Muslim citizens in nations such as Kosovo and Kuwait).

* Tape 3 (IPT fact check: Here Rauf tries to negate that suicide bombings are driven by Islamic religious beliefs and trying to equate terrorist activity to someone who doesn’t get tenure.)

* Tape 4 (IPT fact check: A one-state solution is a euphemism for the destruction of Israel, because Palestinian Muslims will quickly outnumber the Jewish resident of Israel. Such a position is advocated by radical groups, such as the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.)

* Tape 5 (IPT fact check: Rauf again seems to justify terrorist acts by equating hitting civilians with political objectives.)

All roads taken by Feisal Abdul Rauf seem to lead to the sharia state of Malaysia.

–“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.” –The Almighty Allah, writing in his bestselling book: “The Koran,” Sura 5, (The Table), Verse 51 (Translation: Marmaduke Pickthall)

Rauf spent many weeks there in summer 2010. He first attended school there. Rauf stands second in command at Malaysia’s Perdana Global Peace Organization to antisemitic former Malaysian P.M. and Islamic law advocate Mahathir Mohamad,1 who in Nov. 2002, incited global anti-West financial waras a “jihad worth fighting for.” 2 Rauf’s father, Muslim Brother Mohammed Abdul Rauf, a colleague and close contemporary of MB founder Hassan al-Banna, established four Malaysian Islamic study centers, including the International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur, which Mahathir invited him back to Malaysia to open. Malaysia’s IIU now rivals Pakistan’s International Islamic University in Karachi. 3

It now seems that Malaysian Islamic ideology also played a big role in formulating the Muslim Brotherhood strategy to destroy the West from within and sabotage “its miserable house.” 4

Those words, of course, paraphrase Article 4 of “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” penned by Mohamed Akram and secretly circulated to trusted Muslim Brothers on May 22, 1991.5

Also entitled “Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America,” Article 4 needs no further comment. In its entirety, it succinctly and frighteningly explains,

“The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their [own] hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.” 6

Recognizing the centrality of Article 17, however, takes on critical importance in light of national and increasingly international furor over Feisal Abdul Rauf’s plan to construct a towering 15-story mosque at Ground Zero. Entitled “Understanding the role and the nature of work of “The Islamic Center” in every city with what achieves the goal of the process of settlement,” Article 17 states,

“The center we seek is the one which constitutes the “axis” of our Movement, the “perimeter” of the circle of our work, our “balance center”, the “base” for our rise and our “Dar al-Arqam” to educate us, prepare us and supply our battalions in addition to being the “niche” of our prayers. (emphasis added)

Like Rauf, reports the Oxford Dictionary of Islam, Dar-al-Arqam is rooted in Malaysia. Actually, Feisal Abdul Rauf could easily have drawn from the prototype “grassroots Malaysian Islamic dawah [proselytization] movement” that Ashari Muhammad al-Tamimi founded in 1968, and evidently named for the first Islamic school of Muhammad, to;

“revive Islamic religious belief and values for comprehensive practice in everyday life. Emphasizes self-assessment, self-correction, and formation of the Islamic personality. Uses the Sufi teacher-disciple bond to reinforce obedience to leadership. Sponsors lectures, concerts, and cultural shows, publishes books, magazines, and newspapers, and produces videos and cassette tapes showing the Islamic way of life. Expanded to an international arena in 1979 through missionary programs and diplomatic contacts. Has established self-contained Islamic villages throughout Malaysia to demonstrate the viability of the Islamic sociopolitical and economic system. Operates schools, clinics, businesses, agricultural complexes, and advertising and service agencies.” 7

Rauf expressed almost identical wishes in his 2000 book, Islam a Sacred Law: What Every Muslim should Know about Shariah. 8 In it, as in his later, 2004 book, Rauf pines for pure, orthodox Islam and the inspiration for both violent and non-violent jihad, as preached by a bevy of Islamic clerics throughout the ages — such as 14th century jurist Taqi al-Din Ahmad Ibn Taymiyya (d. 1328) and his 18th century follower Muhammad b. Abdul al-Wahhab (d. 1793). Rauf seeks to “rejuvenate” their Islamic religious spirit, and that of some he falsely labels “modernists,” Jamal al-Dinal-Afghani (d. 1897), Muhammad Abduh (d. 1905), and Abduh’s biographer Rashid Rida (d. 1935). Far from modern, however, they all sought to impose sharia law more widely — despite its requirements for permanent jihad war, and discrimination and dehumanization of non-Muslims and women. So did classical Sufi master al-Ghazali (d. 1111) — another orthodox Muslim, an equally bellicose jurist concerning annual jihad campaigns, discriminating against non-Muslims and imposing Islamic law. 9

And yes, Rauf plans a mosque: His American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) registered with the Internal Revenue Service in 1997 as a “church” — only to avoid the annual 990 tax form required of all other U.S. tax-exempt non-profit organizations. But it is not a church as Westerners understand that word. It is a battalion.

Article 17 of the MB strategy for North America proves there is nothing innocent about an “Islamic cultural center,” whether labeled “mosque” or not. It clearly invokes the need for military and politically supremacist strategies.

This is in order for the Islamic center to turn – in action not in words – into a seed “for a small Islamic society” which is a reflection and a mirror to our central organizations. The center ought to turn into a “beehive” which produces sweet honey. Thus, the Islamic center would turn into a place for study, family, battalion, course, seminar, visit, sport, school, social club, women gathering, kindergarten for male and female youngsters, the office of the domestic political resolution, and the center for distributing our newspapers, magazines, books and our audio and visual tapes.

In brief we say: we would like for the Islamic center to become “The House of Dawa”‘ and “the general center” in deeds first before name. As much as we own and direct these centers at the continent level, we can say we are marching successfully towards the settlement of Dawa’ in this country.

Meaning that the “center’s” role should be the same as the “mosque’s” role during the time of God’s prophet, … when he marched to “settle” the Dawa’ in its first generation in Madina. from the mosque, he drew the Islamic life and provided to the world the most magnificent and fabulous civilization humanity knew.

This mandates that, eventually, the region, the branch and the Usra turn into “operations rooms” for planning, direction, monitoring and leadership for the Islamic center in order to be a role model to be followed. (emphasis added).10

Whatever he wishes to name his planned Islamic center at Ground Zero — Cordoba House or Park 51, Islamic cultural center or mosque — Muslim Brother Feisal Abdul Rauf clearly follows the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood strategic mandate for North American, which his father followed in 1965 — decades before it was even set to paper. Rauf senior secretly bought two thirds of a prime 3rd Avenue Manhattan block for a personal Islamic “trust” with $1.3 million in funding from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Libya. 11 Likewise, only when the E. 96th St. Islamic Cultural Center of New York opened in 1992 did Rauf le père reveal that $17 million in construction funding emanated from Malaysia and 45 other Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) nations. 12 By 2010, the enormous upper 3rd Ave. Islamic complex had added another two buildings. Since 1984, its founders envisioned apartment units restricted to Muslims alone. 13

The Muslim Brotherhood clearly spelled it out in Article 17. Building Islamic centers equals building military “battalions,” points from which to later stage the planned destruction of the West.

Steve revealing this on Bill Bennett–listen here

Steve Emerson has unearthed 13 hours of audio tape of Imam Rauf. Emerson and his team of investigators has spent the past four weeks going through the newly found material. Rauf is a “radical extremist cleric who cloaks himself in sheep’s clothing.”

Among the shocking revelations Emerson’s team will reveal next week – they found Rauf:

Defending wahhabism – a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia

Calling for the elimination of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State.

Defending Bin Laden’s violence

Demonstrating that there is a lot more to this man than merely a cleric.

The American public now sees the “deception perpetrated by all these Islamic groups that claim they are against violence and terrorism and insist that their rights be respected but in reality are fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Emerson states there is “definitely fraud involved in the entities that Rauf created in the last decade that are co-mingled.” Emerson took it to the IRS, who said, “you have a case.”

There is intel that the shady developers, the Gamal brothers, will be going to radical Islamic organizations to serve as connectors — CAIR, MPAC — so that they do their bidding for the money.

The mosque “is going to be a magnet for radicals.” Emerson is not opposed to the building of mosques. He is “opposed to the building of radical mosques.” ……”Unfortunately 80% of the mosques in the United States are controlled by the Wahhabists. That’s the reality. No one wants to admit it. They’re the ones that attract terrorists.”
