A Muslim Rev. Wright?

Up to now I’ve opposed the proposed mosque in Manhatten and documented why
on this site. I’ve not discussed Imam Rauf because I really didn’t know the story on him. The MSM paints him as a healer and bridge builder. I’ve searched the internet for actual healing or bridge building he has performed and found none. He has spoken eloquently about various subjects and his religion, but this is sizzle–not the bacon.

Today I came across what for me is the deal breaker on this Imam. It involves what he said in Australia in 2005. It’s only a few minutes that you can listen to here:

This statement by Imam Rauf that ” the United States has more Muslim blood on it’s hands than al Qaida has on it’s hands of innocent young Muslims” is based on the sanctions placed on Iraq by the United Nations, not just the United States . Along with other statements by the Imam that “the United States’ policies were an accessory to the crime that happened” on 9/11; “In fact, in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the U.S.A.”; “The U.S. and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end”.

I can now determine for myself where this Imam’s allegiances lie and better put my head around what he’s trying to accomplish. I invite you to do the same.


  1. Leads to the next logical question…. why is our state department paying $20,000 for this guy to go overseas and say this crap?
