The son of a Hamas founder, and Christian convert Mosab Hassan Yousef recently avoided an almost certain death sentence, after Obama’s Homeland Security Dept. had scheduled him for deportation back to the West Bank. Last June, suddenly, and without explanation, an immigration judge granted Yousef asylum.
As a former member of Hamas, he bristles at the thought that the Imam behind Park 51 refuses to acknowledge that the group is a terrorist organization.
“What Bin Laden did on September 11, people are trying to forget…Don’t remind them every day with a stupid project on a graveyard that will open the wound…and pour into it acid!”
Yousef concurs with what other GZ mosque opponents have been saying about the original name for the project, Cordoba House – it’s a symbol of conquest, occupation, and aggression.
He calls it a “mosque of division” and appeals to Muslims to reject the project, “let’s not help them!”
While I have no idea how many American Muslims oppose the project, mosque organizers are having trouble trouble with one group who will literally not help them build it:
A growing number of New York construction workers are vowing not to work on the mosque planned near Ground Zero.
“I wouldn’t work there, especially after I found out about what the imam said about U.S. policy being responsible for 9/11,” Kaiser said.
The grass-roots movement is gaining momentum on the Internet. One construction worker created the “Hard Hat Pledge” on his blog and asked others to vow not to work on the project if it stays on Park Place.
“Thousands of people are signing up from all over the country,” said creator Andy Sullivan, a construction worker from Brooklyn. “People who sell glass, steel, lumber, insurance. They are all refusing to do work if they build there.”
Atlas Shrugs: Imam Rauf’s Newly Discovered Explosive Audio Tapes
Steve Emerson has unearthed 13 hours of audio tape of Imam Rauf. Emerson and his team of investigators has spent the past four weeks going through the newly found material. Rauf is a “radical extremist cleric who cloaks himself in sheep’s clothing.”
Among the shocking revelations Emerson’s team will reveal next week — they found Rauf:
Defending wahhabism – a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia
Calling for the elimination of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State.
Defending Bin Laden’s violence
Demonstrating that there is a lot more to this man than merely a cleric.
The American public now sees the “deception perpetrated by all these Islamic groups that claim they are against violence and terrorism and insist that their rights be respected but in reality are fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Emerson states there is “definitely fraud involved in the entities that Rauf created in the last decade that are co-mingled.” Emerson took it to the IRS, who said, “you have a case.”
