Ever since 9/11, the mantra fed to the American people has been that Islam is a peaceful religion and that moderates vastly outnumber the radicals. Enter National Review's Andrew McCarthy, who is writing about how the notion of moderate Islam is a consequence of Saudi money flooding into our universities to further Saudi's brand of Islam while aligning with America's left. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi is an example cited by McCarthy.

Via National Review:
Like Harvard, Georgetown has been purchased into submission by tens of millions of Saudi petrodollars. In its resulting ardor to put Americans at ease about Islam, the university somehow manages to look beyond Qaradawi’s fatwas calling for the killing of American troops in Iraq and for suicide bombings in Israel. Qaradawi, they tell us, is a “moderate.” In fact, as Robert Spencer quips, if you were to say Islam and secularism cannot co-exist, John Esposito, Georgetown’s apologist-in-chief, would call you an Islamophobe; but when Qaradawi says it, no problem — according to Esposito, he’s a “reformist.”
To illustrate this further, McCarthy quotes Qaradawi's own words:
...the call for secularism among Muslims is atheism and a rejection of Islam. Its acceptance as a basis for rule in place of Shari’ah is downright apostasy.
This is a level of hypocrisy the left simply cannot rationalize. It's slapping them in the face but they cannot feel it.

McCarthy continues:
The sad fact, the fact no one wants to deal with but which the Ground Zero mosque debate has forced to the fore, is that Qaradawi is a moderate. So is Feisal Rauf, who endorses the Qaradawi position — the mainstream Islamic position — that sharia is a nonnegotiable requirement.
The left should have woken up a long time ago but as these realities reveal themselves more clearly, it will.

Read it all.

UPDATE: Here's a video of McCarthy opposite an Imam with the NYC Dept of Corrections - a must see. Like Rauf, this Imam won't denounce Hamas as a terrorist organization either:


I almost didn't post this because of the consistently strong language throughout on the part of a far left, unhinged whacko who supports construction of the ground zero mosque. He's not necessarily a whacko for supporting the mosque but he is a certifiable one for cursing out an 83 year-old holocaust survivor who opposes it. If you could encapsulate what is wrong with the left in this country, this should do it. Furthermore, if there's a video clip heavy on profanity that should be shown, it's this one.

Apologies in advance but this one deserves to be posted so you can see how far some of these morons will go to push their vitriol. At one point, this guy even tells the older man that he hadn't learned his lesson.

This nut had the gall to accuse a holocaust survivor of advocating doing to Muslims what Hitler did to the Jews. Obviously lost on him was that the Nazis and the Muslims were on the same side in WWII and shared a common enemy - the Jews.

In February of 2010, Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf was heard on an Egyptian radio interview. Former Muslim terrorist, Walid Shoebat discovered the interview and combed through it, translating the Arabic into English and perhaps the most explosive discovery is that, according to Rauf, parts of Barack Obama's 2009 Cairo speech were taken directly from Rauf's book. If so, such a revelation could help to explain why Obama has come out in support of the Cordoba Initiative's desire to build the mosque.

Here is the relevant portion of the transcript, courtesy of Web Today, which also links to the AUDIO of Rauf making this claim. Please take note of a very important point. In the audio clip, you will hear Rauf mistakenly (or was it) refer to the Cairo speech being given by Bush. He appears to have been referring to Obama as the two other people with him appear to correct him by saying, "Obama".
“We have to look at it [as] how to engineer solutions. At the Cordova Initiative we think of ourselves as an engineering shop. Yes. We have an analytical approach. Our work has been that. IN THE BOOK CHAPTER 6, I WROTE ABOUT THIS BLUE PRINT as to WHAT HAS TO BE DONE BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, what has to be done by the Jewish community, what has to be done by the Christian community, what has to be done by the Muslim community, what has to be done by educators, what has to be done by the media. For example, IN MY BOOK IN THE ARABIC VERSION page 293, what did I write? WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT THE UNITED STATES NEEDS TO DO. IF YOU EXAMINE THIS CHAPTER YOU WILL FIND THAT THE (OBAMA) SPEECH IN CAIRO WAS ALL TAKEN FROM THIS SECTION [Section 6]. When you do a job that is very complicated. You ask yourself, what have you accomplished. All these problems can be solved but requires the will to solve it. It requires political will, resources and the right focus. The signs of how to go to the moon was known 200 years ago, but the political will and financial will for it happened during 1960-1961. When John Kennedy said that we will send an American to the moon before the end of the 60’s, he established the financial resources and the political will.”
That's not all. How about this excerpt from Rauf's interview, in which he discusses Obama's Cairo speech:
“The speech was wonderful and wise in his choice of words, the Prime Minister of Malaysia after the speech disclosed to me that it is now easy for any president of a Muslim country to establish good relations with America, and I AM NOT GOING TO HIDE FROM YOU THAT ONE OF THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED IN WRITING THE SPEECH, TRANSFERRED ENTIRE PARTS OF MY BOOK ‘A NEW VISION FOR MUSLIMS AND THE WEST’, which he referred to U.S. interests being compatible with top interests of the Muslim world”.
Wouldn't you like to know who Rauf is talking about there? Someone who participated in writing the speech transferred "entire parts" of Rauf's book into that speech?

I found this next excerpt very interesting for a number of reasons:
His (Rauf's) suggestion to Muslims on how to deal with western Christians and Jews was:

“deal with them as one courts a pretty girl he wants to date; stop thinking like a typical Muslim. Then you can engage.”
Might that strategy explain this reaction?
