Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is aware and approves of the State Department-funded trip to the Middle East for the controversial imam of the Ground Zero mosque, according to state department sources.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is considered controversial for his refusal to acknowledge Hamas as a terrorist organization as well as for a comment he made to "60 Minutes" in 2001 when he said that U.S. foreign policy could be considered an "accessory" to the 9/11 attacks.
On Wednesday, the State Department revealed portions of Rauf's itinerary. He will be visiting Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. However, they officials would not say with whom who he was going to meet with or give any other details of his trip, itinerary, only that he would be traveling alone with his wife.
The State Department maintains that Rauf has gone on similar trips like this one before to promote the role of religion in the United States as it pertains to Muslims. "Our relationship with Imam Feisal goes back to 2007. He traveled early this year. His travel is not connected to the question to the government before New York City. He's going to participate in the program."
Rauf's charity also funded the Free Gaza Movement "peace" flotilla who brutally attacked Israeli commandos then screamed they were the real victims.Creeping Sharia points to an article where it is stated that the US Government is funding "mosques, schools, institutes, and community centers that are trying to modernize Islam around the world."
Why are our tax dollars being spent not only to promote a violent political ideology which masquerades as a "religion," but also the travel of an Imam who may be fundraising for Islam's monument to the slaughter of 3,000 "infidels" at the World Trade Center site? Where's all the phony groups like the AlQueda Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) calling for "separation of church and state?" They're silent, because the ACLU has always been on the side of forces who want to destroy America.
Make no mistake, that is what this is all about. This is not about "freedom of religion" or "religious tolerance." This is a provocation by the so-called "Religion of Peace" against not only the victims of 9/11 and their families, but New Yorkers, Americans and all freedom loving people. The American liberal is shamelessly aiding and abetting this Muslim victory monument as a rebuke of the United States and the foreign policy of the President they loved to hate, George W. Bush.
And if Hillary Rotten Clinton thinks she can take advantage of Barack Hussein Obama's falling poll numbers for another run at the White House in 2012, she should be reminded of this.
