A few women Muslims have struck me as genuine however, like Nonie Darwish, which is not surprising since they have more to lose in a world where more societies are ruled by sharia.
Raheel Raza appeared on Oâ€™Reilly on Monday and had sensible things to say about the Ground Zero mosque. Could she have been serious? Possibly.
Hereâ€™s more from the same person.
Mischief in Manhattan, Ottawa Citizen, by Raheel Raza and Tarek Fatah, August 9, 2010
Last week, a journalist who writes for the North Country Times, a small newspaper in Southern California, sent us an e-mail titled â€?Help.â€? He couldnâ€™t understand why an Islamic Centre in an area where Adam Gadahn, Osama bin Ladenâ€™s American spokesman came from, and that was home to three of the 911 terrorists, was looking to expand.
The man has a very valid point, which leads to the ongoing debate about building a Mosque at Ground Zero in New York. When we try to understand the reasoning behind building a mosque at the epicentre of the worst-ever attack on the U.S., we wonder why its proponents donâ€™t build a monument to those who died in the attack?
New York currently boasts at least 30 mosques so itâ€™s not as if there is pressing need to find space for worshippers. The fact we Muslims know the idea behind the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation to thumb our noses at the infidel. The proposal has been made in bad faith and in Islamic parlance, such an act is referred to as â€?Fitna,â€? meaning â€?mischief-makingâ€? that is clearly forbidden in the Koran. [â€¦]
If this mosque does get built, it will forever be a lightning rod for those who have little room for Muslims or Islam in the U.S. We simply cannot understand why on Earth the traditional leadership of Americaâ€™s Muslims would not realize their folly and back out in an act of goodwill.
As for those teary-eyed, bleeding-heart liberals such as New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and much of the media, who are blind to the Islamist agenda in North America, we understand their goodwill.
Unfortunately for us, their stand is based on ignorance and guilt, and they will never in their lives have to face the tyranny of Islamism that targets, kills and maims Muslims worldwide, and is using liberalism itself to destroy liberal secular democratic societies from within.
