Plans to build a 13-story super mosque just steps from ground zero in New York are well underway and moving forward. The New York Post first reported it could opened on 9-11-11, however they have removed that article. From all I have read, I don't see how that is possible, however the project is moving forward.
The "Cordoba House" project, as it is called, is being presented as a collaborative effort of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative.
The plan for the center was presented to the Community Board of Lower Manhattan last week. The plan includes a mega mosque, swimming pool, meeting rooms, etc., and is located steps from the World Trade Center "Ground Zero" site.
The board approved with no dissenting votes.
Ro Sheffe, a board member said, "They own the land, and their plans don't have any zoning changes."
Indeed they do own the land. A man named Fasial Abdul Rauf bought the land for $4.5 million through one of his organizations. The payment was made in cash. He says the super mosque will help foster "better relations between the West and Muslims."
Daisy Khan, his wife, however, not generally identified as such by the press, told CNN, "The time for a center like this has come because Islam is an American religion."
Obviously there is growing concern from many who feel this act opens old wounds rather than healing them. The building where the mosque is being built is so close to the Trade Centers that it was damaged by aircraft debris during the attacks of 9-11.
I have included a link to an interview by Shaun Hannity with Pam Geller. This link also provides an opportunity to sign a petition to resist the building of this super mosque at Ground Zero.
This project is a Trojan Horse. Fasial Abdul Rauf is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Here's why.
Before you go to that interview, let me share an overview of an article published this weekend by Alyssa A. Lappen.
To really know what this about, we must take a closer look at the man behind it all, Fasil Abdul Rauf. Lappen has taken an in depth look at this man and his mission.
Lappen shows Rauf's father to be a radical Egyptian contemporary of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna.
Fesial Rauf, Lappen says, "has planned for some time to develop his father's US Islamic Expansionism."
Lappen says Rauf's early UK education and familiarization with American popular culture and values made him an acutely adept practitioner of Islamic Tagiyya---a deceptive speech and action to advance the interests and supremacy of Islam. He says, "To further that Islamic advancement, Rauf, in 1997, established the American Society for Muslim Advancement(ASMA)."
This is one of the two organizations leading the Ground Zero project.
Rauf's Kashmir born wife, Daisy Kahn, has run the organization since 2005.
Lappen reveals how Rauf has developed relationships with key people under the guise of religious studies even getting support to build a Muslim House center at New York's Chautaugua Institute under the rubric of "Abrahamic" faiths, a cover for Rauf's Islamic activities.
While Rauf presents himself as a "moderate" conciliatory Muslim, his words betray him.
He told the Sydney Morning Herald that, "Terrorism will only end when the West acknowledges the harm it has done to Muslims." He said, "The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians...it was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresdin and Hiroshima, neither were military targets."
Feisal wrote a book in 2004 espousing his agenda of the advancement of Islam titled, "What's Right With Islam". The book has been translated into a number of languages and he has been speaking and promoting his agenda around the world.
In his book he says the US Constitution is sharia-compliant as well as the American political structure.
He told 60 Minutes on September 30, 2001, "The attacks were a reaction against the US Government politically, where we espouse principles of democracy and human rights, [yet] ally ourselves with oppressive regimes in many of these countries---[US] policies were an accessory to the crime that happened."
Note: The crimes the Muslims committed, "Happened".
The Cordoba Institute's name reveals the deceptiveness of the man and his mission.
"Cordoba" was the seat of the Islamic caliphate that ruled most of Spain from Tarig ibn Zayid's 711 invasion through 1248, and controlled parts of Spain clear up until it's full liberation in 1492.
Rauf, along with modern day revisionists of history, have blatantly whitewashed Islam's brutal history in Spain.
Lappen says, "To allow a mosque at a place a Muslim gang destroyed on 9-11 would amount to formally blessing Islam's 1,400 year old tradition of exclusivity and suppression of all persons of all other faiths. It would be a 100% victory of Islam and sharia-law over the Constitution and America's time-honored democracy and pluralism."
