As the Washington Post explained, "Organizers said they are seeking to make a statement by having Muslim leaders come and hold their service in such a visible Christian house of worship."
Who are these "organizers"? Members of known Muslim Brotherhood front groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The Justice Department has identified both as belonging to the Hamas wing of the radical Brotherhood. It's also implicated them in a Hamas conspiracy to raise millions for Palestinian suicide bombers. These co-sponsors of the National Cathedral jumuah ("for invited guests only") remain unindicted co-conspirators in a major terror case.
CAIR is so toxic the FBI won't do outreach with the group. But cathedral clergy rolled out prayer rugs for it.
Another co-sponsor is the ADAMS (All Dulles Area Muslim Society) mosque of Northern Virginia, which the Brotherhood controls through deed-holder ISNA.
"We want the world to see the Christian community is partnering with us and is supporting our religious freedom in the same way we are calling for religious freedom for all minorities in Muslim countries," an ADAMS spokesman claimed.
Really? We don't recall ADAMS demanding Palestinians to stop denying Jews access to the Temple Mount. Or the Brotherhood to stop burning Coptic churches. Or the Saudis to stop persecuting non-Muslims.
We'll believe such interfaith efforts are real when ADAMS opens its own building for Christian prayers.
And look at what happens when a woman objecting to the use of a Christian church as a mosque by the same people who claim they want religious freedom (NBC Washington).
"Jesus Christ died on that cross over there!" a woman said loudly, immediately after beginning announcements were made. He is the reason why we are to worship only him. Jesus Christ is our lord and savior!"
As she spoke, a man attempted to touch her arm, but she moved away from him several times.
She continued in a loud voice, "We have built, and allowed you here in mosques across this country. Why can't you worship in your mosque, and leave our churches alone?"
The reason, ma'am, was made pretty clear in 1998 by CAIR's co-founder, when he was quoted as saying at a speech in Fremont, CA (Discover the Networks).
"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."Also, if there's supposed to be an "Interfaith dialogue" why then do reports indicate that nine of 10 countries oppressive to Christians are Islamic nations?
