Dawa from the rubble

If you read nothing else today, take the time to read this Andrew McCarthy piece at National Review Online:

Feisal Abdul Rauf is the imam behind the "Cordoba Initiative" that is spearheading plans to build a $100 million Islamic center at Ground Zero, the site where nearly 3,000 Americans were killed by jihadists on 9/11. He is also the author of a book called What's Right with Islam Is What's Right with America. But the book hasn't always been called that. It was called quite something else for non-English-speaking audiences. In Malaysia, it was published as A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of America Post-9/11.

Now it emerges that a "special, non-commercial edition" of this book was later produced, with Rauf's cooperation, by two American tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood: the Islamic Society of North America and the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

...

Dawa, whether done from the rubble of the World Trade Center or elsewhere, is the missionary work by which Islam is spread. As explained in my recent book, The Grand Jihad, dawa is proselytism, but not involving only spiritual elements -- for Islam is not merely a religion, and spiritual elements are just a small part of its doctrine. In truth, Islam is a comprehensive political, social, and economic system with its own authoritarian legal framework, sharia, which aspires to govern all aspects of life.

Take a moment to either bookmark this and come back to it or read it all now.  Then pass this on.

It's important.

"The Ground Zero project... (Below threshold)
914:

"The Ground Zero project is a test of America's resolve to face down a civilizational jihad that aims, in the words of its leaders, to destroy us from within."

The buffoon in chief is destroying from within as well.

Coincidence? I think not.

I dont think jihadist's are... (Below threshold)

I dont think jihadist's are American or even human for that matter. More like demon possessed..

I regret that I do not have the adequate vocabulary to express my outrage over the proposed mosque, in socially acceptable terms.

Just vile. Hopefully it will be halted.
