Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf:
I would personally like to thank Obama for funding
my ME trip to elicit donations for the 9/11 mega-mosque
Obama, while he may not be a Muslim (a status still unclear) he most certainly is up to his eyeballs in aiding and abetting the Islamic agenda. Here once again the Obamantion helps to undermine the US by sending a Muslim “envoy” who regards 9/11 as “blowback” for past policies, to the Middle East. No doubt Feisal Rauf will use his time there, on the backs of the US taxpayer, to further slam the US while milking donations for his mega mosque in NYC. KGS
ME Online: And the imam’s trip under the auspices of the State Department is being criticized by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Peter King, the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee.
“It is unacceptable that US taxpayers are being forced to fund Feisal Abdul Rauf’s trip to the Middle East,” the pair said in a joint statement.
“Abdul Rauf has cast blame for 9/11 on the US, and even refuses to call Hamas what it is — a foreign terrorist organization,” they said.
“This radical is a terrible choice to be one of the faces of our country overseas. The US should be using public diplomacy programs to combat extremism, not endorse it,” they said.
“The State Department’s selection of Feisal Abdul Rauf to represent the American people through this program further calls into question the administration’s policy and funding priorities,” they added.
