Bridge builder Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf, the Muslim cleric behind plans for the Ground Zero mosque, has now been exposed as a man of shrewd cunning and as a calculating stealth jihadist who supports the creation of an Islamic State, The Ummah, right here in America.
An interview has surfaced in which, after being assured that it has ended, Imam Rauf speaks off-the-record and reveals some intriguing plans and views that he has regarding America and the world. The interview, given on June 20th, 2006, sees Rauf speaking about his game plan for achieving an Islamic State without borders, which in his mind has previously existed and should have continued to exist, if not for Western interference in the last century. The Ground Zero mosque imam also discusses some of his other objectives which include: (1) manipulating U.S. foreign policy, (2) advocating for Hamas and (3) getting power on his side to push back the opposing interests. In one part of the post-interview, he also boasts that he advised and influenced former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and that he has a blurb on the back of one of her books.
One cant help from wondering: why is a Sufi cleric involved in such things?
Check out Rauf off-mic here:
To get a closer look at the psychology and true game plan of Imam Rauf, lets take a closer look at some of the more intriguing quotes from him in this interview:
9/11 was a watershed, was a major catalytic force in, in catalyzing the attention towards the issue of Islam, its presence in the West.
This quote clearly reveals that the Imam sees 9/11 mainly as a major opportunity, a milestone in advancing Islam. In other words, he holds that the murder of 3,000 Americans is now facilitating the work of nice moderate Imams like himself in America.
How America should really engage with them [Hamas] Helping her [Madeline Albright] understand the role of religion. She supported a Jewish State in the Middle East; why not support an Islamic State?
When Rauf learned that the interview was over, he opens up regarding his advocacy for Hamas and how he advised and influenced former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright with whom he claimed to have had constant contact. Rauf warns of the need to deal with Hamas lest we lose this organization to bad guys, like Syria or Iran, as if Hamas is not bad enough on its own. This is the same threat this man of peace is warning America with to never upset the Islamic street or else.
We have designed our Cordoba Initiative to be designed, in other words, we have 5 major areas of our program. So we have foreign policy, is one area, you have communications is another area, you have education as the third area, for example, you have intra-Islamic issues is the fourth area, arts and culture is the fifth area.
Why would Cordoba, which he claims to be a cultural center, have a foreign policy section that would develop strategy action play? What is it exactly he going to educate Americans about? Will he send Muslim coaches to American schools to teach sensitivity training to watch out for the feelings of Muslims? Or might he demand to educate American kids about how to pray to Allah?
If the entertainment media, the news media, was broadcasted in print, describe and speak about the issues in a different way it can help change perceptions profoundly, because its the media, which helps shape perceptions to a great degree. So if we have strategic action plays, designed plays, in the area of foreign policy, in the area of healing the divide, and then you unpack and give up Israel. You then have to have your offensive coaching stuff, your offensive coach and defensive coach and your head coach, we have to have our Palestinian coach, etc.
Rauf speaks here like a war strategist who wants to use the media to shape perceptions to promote his strategic action plays in the area of foreign policy. Rauf and I are both of Egyptian origin and I think he is still dreaming of the good old days when the Egyptian media propaganda machine I lived under and participated in was at its strongest. Before moving to America, I was a journalist and media censor in the Middle East News Agency. There is no other way to interpret what Rauf wants: to use the media the way the tyrants and dictators of the Middle East do: as a traditional Islamic tool of indoctrination, misinformation and propaganda. Watch how clever Rauf inserts words like healing the divide right before hitting us with you unpack and give up Israel.
I am the head coach of this strategic initiative and the President of the United States, or the President of Malaysia, or the President of England, is like a player you want to bring in for particular plays. We look at it as American football, you want to gain yardage.
Are we supposed to believe that these are normal words of a peaceful Sufi cleric? What is it that he wants to win in yardage, one yard at a time? These are clearly grandiose plans of what appears to be a borderline delusional narcissist who admits he plans to manipulate U.S. foreign policy, the U.S. president, the president of England (someone please inform the Queen on that one!) whom he considers as just players in his grand scheme.
When he is asked who he considers to be the enemy, he answers: You have to make sure you are not pushed back, you have to make sure you have power on your side to be able to push the ball forward. Is this community building or a war strategy?
Mr. Rauf goes on to speak of his vision of the Islamic State:
I dont want a demographic Islamic State, it is not a part of our tradition and never was until recently. He added Egypt, Alexandria, had 400,000 Greeks We created the notion of demographic Nation State whereas before that they were all living together.
Rauf has an illusion of an Islamic State that never was and never will be. For some reason, Im hearing John Lennons song Imagine (theres no countries no borders etc).
Raufs true self, motives and objectives have been exposed in this interview. To him, the hard Jihad of 9/11 was just a catalytic beginning that facilitated his form of stealth Jihad. Soften the American public with a huge explosive terror act that divides Americans and sends their heads spinning, then comes Rauf to save the day with his community bridge-building at Ground Zero. To him, 9/11 was just a strategic move in an Islamic/Western chess game. With both violent and stealth jihad coordinating their efforts and by playing the old good cop-bad cop routine on the American psyche, Rauf aims at becoming the Muslim hero in America who will join those who want to break down Americas borders brick by brick until finally one day America is transformed into a Sharia-compliant Islamic state.
Faisal Rauf is the typical double-faced Islamist who speaks from both sides of his mouth. Even his book has one nice title in English to fool the West, while in Arabic it advocates Sharia from Ground Zero. While claiming that his mission is non-political, just community building, his interview not only exposes him but more importantly exposes Islams goals and the fact that moderate Islam can work in perfect harmony and in conjunction with radical Islam.
Imam Rauf is dangerous, but what is more dangerous is our State Department which has has been facilitating the agenda of a clearly megalomaniacal stealth jihadist.

Shouldn’t a drone be moving in on this guy by now? Obama actually has known terrorists representing this country, and I am not dreaming !! Uggghhh !
anything unlawful is lawful to themb
Were the Founding Fathers including efforts at establishing an Islamic “state without borders” in their concept of freedom of religion? I don’t believe they were. In their day they wouldn’t have thought that possible. They were concerned about equal rights for Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Quakers, Jews. . . . .
If this is the best representative of “moderate Islam” that the Left/MSM can muster, just imagine what they aren’t telling us about the non-moderates. To quote another FReeper: Islam delenda est.
Bridge builder, indeed. /s
No matter what you do for or to a muslim, at the end of the day, you are still the infidel.
LOL - Him and every other butt kisser foreigner in the world... Was that woman susceptible to flattery or what?
“Ground Zero Mosque: Muslim Brotherhood Axis Descends on New York”
Didn’t he claim yesterday that he has gone into hiding?
“I Guess the Other Victims Don’t Matter
Talk about the height of idiocy and insensitivity and submission. I am sure he is including the 19 jihadist murderers as well.
Bill Clinton Endorses Muslim Center Near Ground Zero DNA hat tip Ruth
Bill Clinton suggested that the Islamic center near Ground Zero be dedicated to the Muslim victims of 9/11.”
FYI, please share with others.
If the founding fathers were alive today, these guys would be getting an a**-whooping!!
This is *it*.
Put an end to his charade and take all the damn pols who supported him with him.
Perhaps they don't seem to particularly care because calling attention to the disappearing Christian population since the removal Saddam contradicts their pro-world policing playbook that our presence in Iraq is beneficial.
