In the ultimate act of Islamic-supremicist conquest, and despite a series of protests, Kuwait-born Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf is getting set to erect a "Tower of Terror" under the garb of a mosque 600 feet from the site of Ground Zero in New York City. Although the prospective leader of the proposed $100 million "Cordoba House" projects himself as a moderate Muslim -- he speaks of "building bridges" and "outreach" -- he is a key figure in the Malaysian-based Perdana Global Peace Organization, the single biggest donor [$366,000] to the Free Gaza Movement, a key organization in the flotilla that tried to break Israel's naval blockade of the Hamas-run Gaza strip a few weeks ago.
Apart from refusing to condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization, Imam Abdul Rauf appeared on the popular Islamic website Hadiyul-Islam (where, ironically, a fatwa was simultaneously being issued that forbade a Muslims to sell land to a Christian, because the Christian wanted to build a church on it); in an interview by Sa'da Abdul Maksoud on May 29, 2010, Abdul Rauf was asked his views on Sharia [Islamic religious law] and the Islamic state:
"Throughout my discussions with contemporary Muslim theologians," he responded,"it is clear an Islamic state can be established in more than just a single form or mold. It can be established through a kingdom or a democracy. The important issue is to establish the general fundamentals of Sharia that are required to govern. It is known that there are sets of standards that are accepted by [Muslim] scholars to organize the relationships between government and the governed."
When questioned about this, Abdul Rauf continued: "Current governments are unjust and do not follow Islamic laws."
He then added: "New laws were permitted after the death of Muhammad, as long, of course, that these laws did not contradict the Quran or the Deeds of Muhammad ... so they create institutions that assure no conflicts with Sharia law."
In plainer English, forget the separation of church and state: Abdul Rauf's goal is the imposition of Sharia law - in every country -- even democratic ones like the U.S.
Imam Rauf is dreaming of constructing this mosque with the ultimate goal of Islamizing America.
I precisely understand the reason behind such huge flow of fund for this Tower of Terrorism at Ground Zero site. Many of the radical Muslim nations in the world are willing to "teach a lesson" to Americans by planting a mosque at the very wound of those family members of the martyrs as well as patriotic Americans.
Further, this very mosque, like many other large mosques and so-called Muslim community centers in United States, will turn into the epicenter for the activities of Tablighi Jamaat, an organization that preaches Jihad and encourages the deceitful conversion of non-Muslims to Islam. Due to the decades-long activities of Tablighi Jamaat, we fear that if they continue their activities inside Bangladesh for another decade, the country may witness the complete elimination of religious minorities such as Christians, Hindus and Buddhists, from the population.
While Tablighis are actively working inside United States to Islamize America, Americans sit silently. Islamists like Abdul Rauf do not sit silently; they move fast ahead.
