Ground Zero Victory Mosque Imam and al-Qaeda have the same goals, different tactics

The proposed Ground Zero Mosque imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, is going on a national speaking tour  to spread the usual Muslim lies about the reason for the victory mosque. National Security expert, Frank Gaffney, likened Rauf to al-Qaeda and argued that the not-yet-built Islamic cultural center was seditious and should be treated “accordingly.”

News Hounds As FOX NEWS guest host Eric Bolling explained that the imam will be traveling around the U.S. to “make his case,” a photo of the imam appeared on the side of the screen above a caption reading, “victory tour.” Bolling added, “(Rauf’s) going to have one heck of a sales job to do on that one, especially as worries grow that a small but growing minority of American Muslims may be sympathetic to the radical ideology of jihad.”

The Left wing media terrorist-supporters call Gaffney an Islamophobic extremist who has suggested that President Obama is a Muslim and embraces radical Islam. (Only because it is true). Gaffney believes we are underestimating the threat from home-grown jihadists.”

Bolling rejected  the notion that Fox News might be underestimating the threat. “Certainly not at this network… do we underestimate the massive risk that we have with this growing jihadist ideology.”

But Gaffney disagreed. “You miss more often than not, the second part of the threat that this ideology – you call it the ideology of jihad, the more accurate way  to describe it is as sharia and the other piece of jihad that sharia commands its adherents to follow is a kind of stealthy jihad, what the Muslim Brotherhood calls ‘civilization jihad,’ and that is almost entirely missed by the media, by our government even, by academia.” The result, Gaffney said, is that “guys like Feisal Abdul Rauf, who are prime practitioners of this stealth jihad, tend to get a pass or worse yet, sometimes lionized as moderate Muslims who are the opponents of this jihadism when in fact they are simply prosecuting it by different means.”

Hizbut Tahir is a  terrorist-supporting group that advocated takeover of the West and Sharia law.

Gaffney said, “The problem with that is, if I’m right, that Feisal Rauf is actually prosecuting the same ends as Al Qaeda… that he seeks through stealthy means to achieve the triumph of sharia… letting him have that mosque anywhere, Eric, is a problem.”

“Let me say how I would put it,” Gaffney said. “A mosque that is used to promote a seditious program, which is what sharia is, as practiced by Feisal Rauf, as practiced by Osama bin Laden, as practiced by the Saudis, and the Iranians and so many others, that is not a protected religious practice. That is in fact sedition and I think that we have to be clear about that and treat it accordingly.”
