The Muslim holy book, the Quran, tells Muslims it’s OK to lie about their faith to non-Muslims to avoid “persecution,” but you can drive a 747 jumbo jet through that word “persecution” (see Sura 16:106 and 3:28 of the Quran).
In the last few days, Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, the allegedly “moderate” Muslim behind the Ground Zero mosque and Muslim “cultural” center in New York City, has told both CNN and ABC News that if America doesn’t allow him and his Muslim supporters to build the mosque and cultural center, other Muslims around the world will “explode.”
“If we do move [the mosque],” Rauf said, “it will strengthen the argument of the [Muslim] radicals to recruit, their ability to recruit, and their increasing aggression and violence against our country.”
Apparently, President Obama, who was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Islamofascist, Muslim-controlled Indonesia, agrees with Rauf’s assessment.
All this is beginning to sound like a bad police melodrama on TV, the ones where police detectives lie to suspected criminals by playing “good cop, bad cop.” Only, in this case, of course, Rauf is playing the “good” imam by warning the American people about “bad” imams like Osama bin Laden, the radical clerics controlling Iran and other terrorist agitators in Islam.
In effect, Rauf is telling the American people that they better go along with his plans for redeeming America and turning around the “poisoned” atmosphere following the Islamic terror attacks on 9/11, or else the bad imams will take their revenge and “go medieval” on America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Like the good cop/bad cop scenario, however, Rauf and Obama’s “good imam/bad imam” scenario is a downright lie designed to deceive the American public so that both the “good” imam and the bad imam, including Osama bin Laden, Muslim apologist Barack Obama and their supporters in the mass media, get what they want.
Thus, the “good” imam acts like he really opposes the angry, violent tactics of the bad imam and his Muslim followers. But, in reality, both imams are using threats of violence to turn America and its people into “useful idiots” who will then surrender to the Islamofascist goals of the Quran and its evil, murderous, tyrannical, deceptive founder, Muhammad.
This is when, of course, the lawyer defending the alleged criminal and the person defending America and its Christian heritage must step in and tell the people, “Don’t accept this deal from these people. It’s a bad deal designed to destroy your reputation and curtail your liberty. These people are lying to you to get what they want.”
The question is, will the American people listen to their defenders, or accept the lies of those who have a special, hidden agenda to destroy America, its heritage, its reputation and its freedom?
