On his radio show today, Dennis Prager notes that imam Feisal Abdul Rauf says Ground Zero is not “hallowed ground” because there are strip joints there.
Dennis: “If 2900 Americans had been incinerated by strippers, nobody would want a $100 million stripper building in that place. Strippers have nothing to do with 9/11 but Muslims do. Not all Muslims, but Muslims.”
“If strippers around the world were murdering tens of thousands of people in the name of stripping, then building a stripper building at Ground Zero would be a problem. Strippers are to 9/11 as fish are to bicycles.”
Christiane Amanpour of ABC News, the most politically correct of the major news networks, interviewed Sunday Professor John Esposito of Georgetown University. He said: “We have two dangers right now. One is that the civil liberties of Muslim Americans will be even more eroded. Two, and more broadly, we will wake up one day and realize that the America we like to celebrate, you know the America we point to people around the world when we look down on them and say, we’re a democracy, we believe in pluralism, we believe in human rights. That, in fact, all of that, with the exception of this group. And that’s a very dangerous and slippery slope to go down.”
Dennis: This guy has been an apologist for Saudi Arabia and anything going on in Islam for 20 years.
How have civil liberties for American Muslims eroded at all?
Americans look down on the world by talking about democracy? Does Esposito look down on the U.S.?
Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf tells ABC that “mosques around this country are being attacked.”
Where’s the evidence for this?
In 2008, the last year we have hate crime stats, ten times as many Jews were attacked than Muslims.
How come Jews around the world aren’t threatening to blow up anything? How come Christians around the world aren’t threatening to blow up anything after all the mockery of Christianity in the Western world?
This imam is the man of peace? He’s the best?
If there is growing Islamophobia in the United States, this imam can take 100% responsibility.
From Wikipedia: “Esposito founded the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University and is its current director. The center has received a $20 million endowment from Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal “to advance education in the fields of Islamic civilization and Muslim-Christian understanding and strengthen its presence as a world leader in facilitating cross-cultural and inter-religious dialogue.””
Why do universities host “understanding centers”? I thought universities were supposed to study things, not to promote causes?
H1: Peace Train
Prager H1: Christiane Amanpour interviewed Imam Faisal Rauf about the Mosque at GZ. He accuses his opponents of being “disingenuous.” But the Imam, of course, is as pure as the driven snow. Never mind that he suggests that if the mosque is not built, there may be violence… Dennis talks to Winfield Myers of Campus Watch about Professor John Esposito of Georgetown University, a Saudi flak used by ABC as a disinterested expert in their mosque at GZ story on “This Week” … Dennis talks to John Eastman about who will file an appeal against Judge Walker Prop 8 decision. The governor won’t. The DA won’t. So who will do the people’s will?.. It’s a crime to buy light bulbs in Europe.

H2: Where Are the Demonstrations?
Prager H2: Is there general Islamophobia in the US? No. Is their growing ambivalence toward Islam? Yes. Why? Because nine years after 9/11, we’re still waiting for a big demonstration denouncing Islamist terror. Right now, the most common complaint we are hear is that Muslims in the US are victims… Dennis talks to Michelle Malkin, columnist, best selling author and Fox News analyst.

H3: Democrats Running from Democrats
Prager H3: Not only are Democrats running from the President, they are running from their own party… The first Medal of Honor has been awarded to a living recipient, a true hero… The trial for two murderers begins in Connecticut, their crime so horrific it’s hard to describe. Do you think this human scum deserves to live out their lives in prison? If you are against capital punishment, you do… Hillary Clinton says that this is the last chance for Mideast peace. It’s been the last chance since 1967.

Asked if it’s really a good idea to go ahead with his plans to build a mosque and Islamic center at an address so close to Ground Zero that it has become a flash point, Rauf gave a reply that boils down to a threat. Rauf said that if his Cordoba House does not get built on his chosen site near Ground Zero, “The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack.”
Citing Muslim attacks on Danish embassies during the riots in 2006 over Mohamed cartoons Rauf went on to say that the result of this current “crisis” could be that “anger will explode in the Muslim world.” That, he said, could lead to “something which could really become very, very, very dangerous indeed.”
Please bear in mind that CNN beams this stuff out not only across America, but around the globe. While Rauf might proffer that he was merely giving helpful advice, there’s an Islamist audience out there who could hear his well-amplified words – “Islam is under attack” — as a summons to inflict yet more of those explosive onslaughts in which thousands of Americans have already been killed.
…Rauf’s own plans created this “crisis.” Rauf himself said last December (before his partners began trying to unsay it) that he’d latched on to the Burlington Coat Factory site precisely because of its proximity to Ground Zero — so close to the heart of the Sept. 11 Islamist attacks that it was hit by “wreckage” from one of the hijacked planes. If Rauf was genuinely clueless at the time that harmony would not be served by trying to create an in-your-face $100 million Islamic hub on the edge of Ground Zero, by now he should be clued in.
…On Thursday, real estate magnate Donald Trump offered to buy out the Burlington site, in cash, for 25% above what Rauf’s developers paid, provided they build their mosque at least five blocks from Ground Zero. Apparently that would be too great a compromise for Rauf and his partners. They just keep saying no.
…Rauf’s wife and business partner, Daisy Khan, who covered for him in New York during his summer excursions abroad, seized the opportunity last month to make a televised denunciation of America as a place “beyond Islamophobia.”
