Truther mosque?

Posted by: Phineas on September 13, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Well, isn’t that interesting? The Imam who wants to build a mosque community center rabat at Ground Zero in order to build bridges of understanding and religious tolerance is closely associated with an Islamic 9-11 Truther:

In his interview with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien on Wednesday, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf defended his plans to build a mosque and Islamic center near Ground Zero, saying “You cannot heal a trauma by walking away from it. We have to sit down. We have to talk about it. We have to dialogue about it and find a way to move through it and beyond it.”

But a trove of videos and writings available on the Internet shows that a longtime partner of Rauf believes the 9/11 terror attacks were “an inside job” by U.S. government and corporate interests, the Investigative Project on Terrorism found.

Faiz Khan, a physician who claims to have been a first responder after the September 11 attacks, is a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and is on the advisory board of the Muslims for 9/11 Truth. In an essay on the Alliance’s website, he argued that “the prime factor for the success of the criminal mission known as 9/11 did not come from the quarter known as ‘militant Islam’ although the phenomenon known as ‘militant Islamic networks’ may have played a partial role, or even a less than partial role – perhaps the role of patsy and scapegoat.”

Be sure to read the rest. The more that comes out about the background of those behind the project, the more I think it just isn’t going to happen.

  1. I agree ST, it’s probably not going to happen, but something else will happen after this doesn’t because Islamists like Rauf will never give up. Who does he think he is anyway dictating to us what we have to do? …a classic supremacist attitude. This Imam is evil.

    …and remember he is under no obligation to tell the infidel what he really has in mind…let alone tell the truth, all according to the “holy” Koran.

    This is all just another ploy to hobble and humiliate Americans.

    What do you know? The more we learn the more shady and leftist-whacko his associates are, the more the funds seem to be coming from questionable terrorist nations and sources and the more he threatens and cries racism and discrimination. Poor thing, for a peace-loving red-blooded American, I hate he is having to stoop to such low rent tactics to force this Victory Mosque on us. I’m sure it’s out of character for him.

    Everybody sit down and remain in your seats. We will be returning to the airport shortly. No one will get hurt if you follow our orders.
