Mega-Mosque’s New Foundation
Posted 01/19/2011 06:52 PM ET
Islamofascism: Ground Zero mosque promoters think they’ve found a less radioactive frontman for their project. But their new imam appears worse than the one they’re sidelining.
Replacing imam Feisal Rauf as the new face of “moderation,” “peace” and “interfaith tolerance” is Shaykh Abdallah Adhami, an imam who also happens to be an architect.
“It is an honor for me, personally, to welcome Imam Adhami to our team,” said Sharif El-Gamal, chief developer of the site (who happens to have a criminal record, including assault). “I look forward to his leadership and assistance in the development” of the proposed mega-mosque.
No one else ought to look forward to his leadership, though, including bleeding-heart multiculturalists who still see nothing wrong with a 15-story shrine to Islam leering over the graves of thousands of New Yorkers slaughtered by Islamic terrorists.
A review of Adhami’s past clients turns up the ultraradical cleric Siraj Wahhaj. He designed Wahhaj’s militant Brooklyn mosque. Wahhaj was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He also was a character witness in the trial of the convicted terror plotter Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman, aka the Blind Sheik.
Adhami is a big fan of Wahhaj, in spite of his radical record, and even features him in a glowing profile on his website.
“Imam Siraj Wahhaj is the first in the Celebrating Our Elders series,” says Adhami, an Egyptian-trained Shariah scholar. “He was selected not simply because of his devoted leadership to the community, but also for his role as a pioneer in the American Muslim experience. Since the 1970s, Imam Siraj has tirelessly laid the foundations for many scholars and leaders that would follow him.”
If by “foundations” he means his sermons, Adhami follows in the footsteps of a man whose anti-American rhetoric is outmatched only by fugitive al-Qaida cleric Anwar Awlaki. “Siraj Wahhaj is as radical as you can get,” said Tim Brown, a retired firefighter who responded to the 9/11 attack and has sued to block the mosque.
In his sermons, available on videotape and CDs at his mosque bookstore, Wahhaj has told his flock, “In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing that will remain will be Islam.”
In another sermon, Wahhaj likens America to a dumpster. “You know what this country is? It’s a garbage can,” he snarls. “It’s filthy.” He also demonizes the U.S. government as racist. “America is the most wicked government on the face of the planet Earth.”
More alarming, Wahhaj promotes jihad.
“If we go to war, brothers and sisters — and one day we will, believe me — that’s why you’re commanded (to fight in) jihad,” the imam has told his flock in New York, according to the book “Muslim Mafia.” “When Allah demands us to fight, we’re not stopping and nobody’s stopping us.”
He adds: “I will never tell people, ‘Don’t be violent.’ That’s not the Islamic way.”
In preparation for holy war, according to “Muslim Mafia,” he has exhorted the Muslim faithful to go into the inner cities and the prisons and convert disenfranchised minorities, then arm and train them with “9 millimeters and Uzis.”
Are these the real “foundations” on which the Ground Zero mosque will be built? Hatred? Violence? Insurrection?
The congressional probe of Islamofascism — a suggested agenda
RenewAmerica – Wes Vernon – 10 Jan 2011
Defining our terms
Nearly ten years after the attacks of 9/11, the enemy is making progress in its ongoing effort to lull as back to sleep.
Our leaders dare not use the term Islamofascism. Even War on Terror has become verboten. So the committee’s hearings should be predicated on the understanding that we do have an enemy. That enemy is making war on us.
Most Americans abhor war. Who doesn’t? Put it this way: Though Leon Trotsky was an evil man (who was murdered on the orders of an even more evil man, Stalin), he got one thing right when he said, “You may not be interested in war, but war may be interested in you.” Indeed. And much of today’s war (in which our fervent enemy is deeply “interested”) is being waged right here on our own soil.
As David Rubin opines in his book Islamic Tsunami, Islamofascism is a far more dangerous enemy than either Nazism or Communism. This time, our enemy is a death-worshipping, blood-soaked, suicide-honoring ideology masquerading under the cover of “religion.”
Ideas for the probe
Arab-American Christian scholar Dr. Anis Shorrosh has listed many facets of this war and how the enemy is destroying the ability of the U.S. and its people to resist the onslaught. Here are some of them:
1 — Weaken and ultimately bring about an end to freedom of speech through “hate crime” legislation — state and federal.
2 — Wage a war of words — using the likes of Louis Farrakan — to promulgate the idea that Islam is the original African-American faith, while Christianity is for whites (an ambitious plan whose aim is to tear down the deep Christian religiosity of many black Americans).
3 — Promote in every possible corner of the public square the idea that Islam is just another religion like Judaism and Christianity.
4 — Encourage Muslims and Muslim sympathizers to run for public office.
5 — Infiltrate and ultimately control the media — Hollywood, radio, TV, etc. (Here, they have staunch allies in the secular left, the dominant Hollywood culture.)
6 — Yell “Bigot!” and smear any American who quotes the damning passages of the Koran.
7 — Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, acquire positions in government, and gain membership on local school boards. (Bogus “history” as written by Communist liar Howard Zinn — for example — is widely used in schools, and would aid the Islamofascist effort to destroy the faith of our young people in their country, the Founding Fathers, and the Constitution.)
8 — Accelerate Muslim demographic growth through A) massive immigration (the FBI says many illegals crashing our southern border are from the Middle East, having learned enough Spanish to mingle with Hispanics); B) having Muslim men marry American women, then divorce them and re-marry every five years; and C) converting angry, alienated black prison inmates and turn them into militants (hundreds of such inmates have joined al-Qaeda).
9 — Push for literature in the American educational system that is sprinkled with dislike for Jews, Christians, and democracy.
10 — Provide large money contributions to American colleges and universities to establish “Centers for Islamic Studies.”
11 — When the finger-pointing starts after a terrorist attack, always claim that terrorists have hijacked Islam, even though the truth is that Islam hijacked the terrorists.
12 — Appeal to historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance toward Muslims in America, portraying Muslims as immigrants from oppressed countries. (Here, TV anchorwoman Katie Couric generously provided us a prime example with her ditzy call for an Islamic version of the TV program The Cosby Show. Fred Grandy — formerly “Gopher” on TV’s The Love Boat — solicited ideas from listeners to his morning radio show on WMAL-AM in Washington for a title to Katie’s would-be sitcom. Among the ideas were I Dream of Jihad, How I Met Your Mullah, and Martyred with Children.)
13 — Nullify America’s sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation of possible “imminent attacks,” possibly leaving them unprepared (by repeated cries of “Wolf!”) for a real one. (One recalls Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, who wrote, “Over and over again, branches of the American government have been embarrassed by their blindness to jihadist Islam.”)
14 — Form riots in the prison system.
15 — Open “charities” throughout the U.S., but use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.
16 — Raise interest in Islam on American campuses by insisting that every freshman take at least one course in Islam.
And that’s not all
Repeatedly, Americans who speak out are confronted with those carrying water for yet another strategy on the Muslim agenda: Try to intimidate the outspoken individuals who criticize Islam. (At the same time, Muslims in the U.S. who would be quite willing to assimilate into American culture dare not raise their voices in protest against violent jihad lest they too become victims of it, rendering them ineffective.)
Rubin — in Islamic Tsunami — alludes to the “shocking anti-democratic anti-First Amendment silencing of those who dare to issue a warning threat,” and adds that “Islamic big brother is aided by pagan leftists.”

The Targeting Of Christians
Posted 01/03/2011 07:09 PM ET
Islamofascism: A New Year’s attack on an Egyptian Coptic Christian Church that killed 21 worshipers was not a random act. It also suggests Ground Zero mosque supporters preaching tolerance picked the wrong location.
If further evidence is needed of the nature of the enemy the United States and what’s left of Western civilization faces, it can be found in the ruins of the Talbiya church in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria.
In a terrorist attack one minute after midnight, 21 Christians attending a New Year’s Mass were killed and 97 people, mostly Christians, were injured after a car bomb detonated outside the Coptic church. The pastor of the church told the Malta Times, “I was inside the church and heard a huge explosion. People’s bodies were in flames.”
That this was an organized effort by Islamofascists to drive Christians and Christianity out of the heart of Islam, cannot be denied. But some would like to tap-dance around the obvious in the name of political correctness.

Pakistan will not be a country ruled by mullahs with a divine mission, said Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the father of the nation. What about Jinnah’s Pakistan? … Forgiveness often requires the repentance of those being forgiven.
… standing up to the ghoul of Islamofascism. May your death not lie in the dark of political mystery but may it usher in a fairer, more just nation.
