According to the obvious leftist Maureen Dowd:
By now you have to be willfully blind not to know that the imam in charge of the [Ground Zero mosque] project, Feisal Abdul Rauf, is the moderate Muslim we have allegedly been yearning for.
For reference, Maureen Dowd is an apologist for the horn-dog David Letterman. And she only pretended to throw the predator Bill Clinton under the bus. Of course her obvious dishonesty in that article is easily seen. For a supposed feminist, Dowd is an utter failure, sacrificing women at the altar of liberalism. But as a liberal, she’s par for the course, sacrificing truth for her agenda.
Patterico, who owns a JD (which requires more knowledge than merely knowing the Dewey Decimal System), filleted Dowd. He noted Rauf’s assertion that the US was complicit in the terrorist 9/11 event. He also noted Rauf’s absolute refusal to call Hamas a terrorist organization.
It is easy to find Rauf’s desire to push Sharia law on the US. It is also easy to find Rauf’s connection at the hip to unindicted co-conspirators who funneled money to Mohammedan terrorist organizations. It’s called GOOGLE.
The Imam who wants to build the Cordoba House (GOOGLE Cordoba) is not in any way a moderate. To claim otherwise is to deny the facts which are readily available.
It is interesting to note that, if Rauf had his way, Dowd would not be able to publish in the press.
