In recent news, serious accusations have been made about the Imam proposing the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque".
Sean Hannity : I have the biggest problem with the controversial Imam
Karl Rove : ...and I don't trust this Imam
Fox News : This guy, Imam Rauf, he's not a great ...he's not a good guy
Steve Doocy : He's the mastermind behind the proposed ground zero Mosque
Bill O'reilly : Imam Rauf, he is no friend to America
Fox : This guy IS a radical
Fox : This radical Imam, we don't know what he's planning on doing in that cultural center
Hannity: Should he even be in the U.S.?
Jon Stewart : Oh my God, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, he's a radical terrorist sympathizer. I had no idea, because the name is so familiar. Where have I seen that name before: no fly list, no, America's most wanted, I don't believe that was it, war on terror playing cards, or was it:
Brian Kilmeade : To my immediate left Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, he is the founder of the Cordoba initiative. The group proposing the center.
Stewart : Holy (bleep) he was on Fox.
The Imam's wife was also on Fox News, where Fox's Laura Ingram APPLAUDED this MODERATE Imam last December:
Laura Ingram : Let's talk about the Islamic center at ground zero. I can't find many people who really have a problem with it,
Bloomberg is for it, you got Rabbis in New York saying they don't have a problem with it. I know your group takes a moderate approach to Americanizing people, assimilating people, which I applaud, I think that's fantastic. I like what you're trying to do, and Mrs. Khan we appreciate it.
Stewart : Oh, Fox News.
In fact, Imam Rauf was appointed by George Bush to improve relations with Muslim countries*:
* after invading 2 Muslim nations that NEVER attacked the U.S. and killing hundreds of thousands of Muslim CIVILIANS
Howard Dean : ...the rhetoric from Sarah Palin about terrorists, you know this Imam is not a terrorist, this is ridiculous. He was sent by President Bush around the world to be an ambassador for the U.S.
Steven Colbert : The "Allah-pologists" point out that the head of this proposed Islamic center, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, is a well known moderate who worked on Islamic outreach with the Bush administration. Well there's no surprise there, Bush was a well known Muslim sympathizer:
George Bush : The Muslim faith is based upon peace, and love, and compassion.
Colbert : Why don't you go clear some brush Hajji.
The funny thing is that President Obama is the one that is actually being attacked as a "Muslim Sympathizer" for CONTINUING to work with Imam Rauf.
So back to the accusations, exactly how do we know that the Imam's a "radical"?
Stewart : Perhaps a "scholar" familiar with Middle East issues told us so (a "teacher", a "healer"...of sorts):
Beck : Now, what did this "moderate" say just a few days after 9/11? Well, of course what all "moderates" would say (quote): ' I wouldn't say that the United States deserved what happened. But United States policies were an accessory to the crime that did happen' Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho.
Stewart : What kind of scheming, America-hating, extremist monster would say something so profoundly "evil"...cut to Glenn Beck 3 months earlier:
Beck : I wasn't paying attention before 9/11. I didn't know what the heck was going on in the world. Now I'm paying attention. When people said they hate us. Well, did we deserve 9/11? No. But were we minding our business? No. Were we in bed with dictators and abandon our values and principles? Yes. THAT CAUSES PROBLEMS.
Stewart : What will he think tomorrow?
So what are the "questions" about the Mosque's financing?
Doocy : Where is the money coming from?
Kilmeade : Where are they gonna get the 100 million dollars from?
O'reilly : Where is the money coming... is it coming from Wahabists ... in Saudi Arabia?
Gretchen Carlson : What's he gonna be doing there? Is he gonna be raising money for this Mosque.
Kilmeade : The Imam behind the Mosque may accept money from Iran, there's Saudi Arabia.
Karl Rove : They need to tell us who's behind it, and where's the money coming from.
Wait a minute...Karl Rove worked for Bush when Imam Rauf was appointed. So why is Rove only now questioning his funding?
Stewart : Cuz it might be Muslim Money. Dirty, dirty Muslim money.
Fox : We're following the money trail. Where is this money coming from?
