Ground Zero Imam: US Has More Blood on Hands Than al-Qaeda

The man pushing the Ground Zero Victory Mosque, Imam Faisal Rauf, is supposed to be a “moderate” Muslim, right? We already knew that was bunk (if we were awake, that is), but he keeps getting deeper in it as more of his radical comments come to light.

Take this one for instance:

“We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non Muslims. You may remember that the US lead sanction against Iraq lead to the death of over half a million Iraqi children.”

Yes, the West has gone out of its way to bomb and kill innocent civilians. The overwhelming majority of all terrorism committed in the past 50 years has been by western terrorists. Wait, that would be Muslim terrorists who have committed the overwhelming majority of terrorism in the past 50 years. Sorry about that.

Yes, America had a bloodthirsty zeal to kill Iraqi children and civilians. Wait, that was the Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein who gassed his own people, refused to abide by his own cease-fire agreement and 17 other UN sanctions, and who fired on U.S. and British warplanes who were protecting his own people from him over 200 times in the year prior to the 2003 invasion by the US. Sorry about that.

That historical revisionism stuff, while liberals and Muslims love it, isn’t what it used to be when there are too many inconvenient facts laying around.

Oh, remember what Dr. Laura Schlessinger said recently–illustrating a point about what some black people call each other–that brought a firestorm of criticism on her? Apparently it’s okay if a Muslim Imam says it:

“So men will say: women, you know, they’re emotional, ….. whatever, whatever, and women will say: men, they’re brutes, insensitive, etcetera, and you have the beginning of a gender conflict. If gender is not what distinguishes us we’ll look at skin colouring and say: niggers or whities, or whatever”

Yes, this is definitely a man of tolerance and peace, a man to open dialog and bring healing. That is, if you are properly obedient and submitted dhimmi. Sorry, I have no burning desire to be a dhimmi, nor do I want my free American children to be dhimmis.

I’ll take a pass on the Ground Zero Victory Mosque, as will most Americans, thank you very much.

  1. I think they should be able to build where they want to, because that is the American way. While I do recognize the ‘ sacredness ‘ of this site and mourn for the dead and the families of those who died, I refuse to play games. The game I am referring to is saying that the Mosque is too close, but then refusing to say just what isn’t too close. If I am told that I can’t build something because it is too close to something else then of course I would want to know just where I can build. Then everyone say ” Oh We don’t know , but just not here ” That is game playing and cowardly.Tell me where I can build !!

    That isn’t American. What is American is to say to them ‘go ahead and build where you want’, but if you try and change our laws, we will outvote you. If you do anything illegal, we will come after you etc. but they are welcome to build where they want and say what they want since that is what has made this country great .America is bigger than a building. Let the other countries see that we can overcome this. It will show strength. Not letting them build there will show that we are fearful that they might overcome us. I’m not. Not saying what isn’t too close for them is cowardly

  2. Hello Brian,
    I agree with you (I glad) and the American way of religious freedom. But I think there should be some discretion on local developments by our local leaders; Can someone put an outdoor firing range in at the same cite or a 70 unit Section 8 housing apartment complex wherever he wants? This was recently tried in my neighborhood, luckily it was voted down after the community voiced our concerns. Maybe Mayor Bloomberg and the city counsel members should be held responsible by being voted out – for using bag judgment. But that decision was already made, so Allah be with us.

  3. Hello Bob,
    You hit so may points about US sanctions, but let’s not forget the U.N. Oil for Food scandal and let’s not forget Saddam paying families of Palestinian suicide bombers. President Bush Sr. should never have went along with the U.N. to begin with, this (est. half million Iraqi children dead) is a U.N. mess, not U.S. only. This should be another reason to get out of the U.N. – not build another U.N. headquarters (another Muslim community center).

  4. I couldn’t have said it better, Rian, and thanks for filling in the gaps I left (there are so many to cover).

  5. Hi Rian

    Good to hear from you. I don’t know the specifics of what happened in your community, but I think exactly where someone is allowed or not allowed to build something should depend on city ordinances,city codes and laws rather then ideologies, emotions and passions.

    At this stage in his career and life, I think Bloomberg says what he believes and doesn’t care about political fallout.

    Here is a thought. If a Christian nation like the U.S. nukes two civilian cities in Japan and kills tens and tens of thousands of infants and children, would we respect those cities right to not let any Christian churches be built there, because it’s ‘too close’

  6. Brian,
    Nice to talk to you again, also. Looks like we are in pretty much an agreement on the Mosque issue and I think we can agree that Bloomberg should have thought about those emotions and passions.
    As for the your thought on Japan – I see your point, but I believe Japan would have the right to not allow any foreign religions in, but too many Japanese at the time probably did not blame Christianity, since we are not a declared Christian nation (many disagree) and they declared war on us (Pearl Harbor). As I understand it, then Priminister of Japan, Hirohito, banned Buddhism (because it was a foreign religion) and declared Shintoism as the national religion of Japan leading up to the war. After the war Christian missionaries flocked to help with the reconstruction and help spread the gospel. A lot of Japanese people found Christianity to be less rigid than both Buddhism and Shintoism, after what they just went through, so they many converted to Christianity (the exact opposite here). My mother was raise in a Japanese orphanage after the war (not because of the bombs) and remembers her fondness of the Christian missionaries and thought highly of Americans from an early age. Years later, she asked her friend, who was working at a U.S. base, if she could met a U.S. serviceman – my Dad. Sorry, I went on a tangent, just thought I’d share that with you. Take care Brian I hope to hear from you again.
