Imam Rauf's Taqiyya

Imam Rauf, the promoter of the mosque cum cultural center 600 feet from New York's Ground Zero, claims he intends the structure he develops to help build bridges between Muslims and non-Muslims. If that is true, he will happliy move his structure to a less problematic location. If he refuses to do so, his claim is exposed as a lie.

Imam Rauf claims the U.S. constitution "reflects Muslim values", and that "90% of Sharia law is fully compatible -- not only compatible -- it's consistent or compatible with American constitutional law and American laws. The areas of difference are small and minor." Of course, when not speaking to the American press, he said "secularism has failed to deliver what the Muslim wants, which is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The only law that the Muslim needs exists already in the Koran and the Hadith." One statement or the other is a deliberate lie. Which one to you think is taqiyya?

It seems to me the best that can be said of Imam Rauf and the rest of those promoting this structure — the "Ground Zero Mosque" — is that they are dishonest Islamist supremacists. That's why so many associate this structure with the Islamists' practice, since the days of Mohammet, of building mosques on top of their victims' priority religious and political sites. And that's why so many refer to this structure as Rauf's "Victory Mosque".
