Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf Tells Jordanian Newspaper he is for Sharia Law

I continually see the media calling the Imam of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque a “moderate”. But the truth is that no Muslim who supports Sharia is a moderate, because Sharia calls for the domination of non-Muslims. Here is what the Imam had to say about Sharia to the Jordanian newspaper al-Ghad.

Hat tip to Ryan, with some help from the Desert Queen.

Here it is in Arabic.

عندما يكون لأحد ما شكوى في الشرق الأوسط، ويقول “أنه يجب أن يكون هناك قانون”، فهو يعرف أن هذا القانون موجود. القانون الوحيد الذي يحتاجه المسلم موجود في القرآن الكريم والحديث الشريف. لقد سألني الناس مباشرة بعد هجمة الحادي عشر من أيلول/سبتمبر لماذا تتخذ الحركات العديدة ذات الأجندات السياسية أسماء دينية؟ لماذا تسمى “الأخوان المسلمين” أو “حزب الله” أو “حماس” أو حركة المقاومة الإسلامية؟ أجيبهم أن التوجه الإسلامي نحو القانون والعدالة يبدأ باللغة الدينية لأن الحركات العلمانية قد فشلت في إيصال ما يريده المسلمون، وهو الحياة والحرية والسعي وراء السعادة.

Here is the paragraph translated to English.

“People asked me right after the 9/11 attacks as to why do movements with political agendas carry [Islamic] religious names? Why call it ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ or ‘Hezbollah (Party of Allah)’ or ‘Hamas’ or ‘Islamic Resistance Movement’? I answer them this — that the trend towards Islamic law and justice begins in religious movements, because secularism has failed to deliver what the Muslim wants, which is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. . . .The only law that the Muslim needs exists already in the Koran and the Hadith.” A state based on the Koran and Hadith could only be called a theocracy

To the non-Muslims who support the Imam. Do you hate apostates from Islam, and homosexuals? Because Islamic Law calls for the death of both groups.

APOSTASY FROM ISLAM

O8.1 When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

SODOMY AND LESBIANISM

p17.3 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

(1) “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”

It is time to withdraw your support for Imam Rauf.

      What do you call this?

      009.029
      YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

      • eib

        And “feeling one’s self subdued” involves some pretty extreme measures.
        Mass rape.
        The burning and looting of churches.
        Assault.
        Being forced to wear the zunnar.
        This verse allows Muslims every kind of crime against Christians & Jews.

        • eib

          Oh, and did I forget the kidnapping and enslavement of women and children; along with the murder of men?
          It allows all that.
          The Moors in Spain routinely raided Christian kingdoms and carried people away into slavery in their “free and tolerant” society.

            You do seem to forget that it was the Muslims in Andalusia who saved thousands of Jews from the Inquisition, and gave them safe haven in places like Morocco; Fez was the capital of enlightened thought when the dark ages swept over Spain; and Moses ben Maimon ( Maimonides) the great Jewish theologian was nurtured by an Islamic University in Fez and wrote most of his works in Arabic.

          • eib

            This is a common myth of history and its sources are all Islamic.
            Muslim Spain was no paradise of tolerance at all. If anything, Muslims there forced Jews and Christians to wear special clothing that singled them out for humiliation.
            They raided non-Muslim France for slaves constantly.
            They brutalized the Mozarab Christians and beheaded several in the 9th century.
            Muslim Spain was violent.
            The philosopher Maimonides was allowed his education there but then brutally repressed.
            The idea that Muslim Spain was tolerant is a lie.
            The non-Muslims there were frequently brutalized and humiliated, their women often raped, their goods often plundered.
            And all of them were INNOCENT.

    The headline is misleading because nowhere in this does he say he is FOR Sharia law, he is just explaining why political movements with the attitude that Sharia law is all that is needed tend to have religious names. He is explaining OTHER groups. So are YOU. With your logic, YOU ARE FOR SHARIA LAW.

    • admin

      Save the spin. He clearly is for Sharia.

      “The only law that the Muslim needs exists already in the Koran and the Hadith.”

      I continually speak against Sharia, it is clear where I stand.

    Sharia calls for the domination of non-Muslims..

    Yep! This is what Islam all about. Using the divide-and-rule system pitting the Muslims against the non-Muslims so that they could plunder the wealth of a nation when they come to powers.

    All these Islamic fanatics should be skinned alive and shipped back to their countries of origin!

  • king

    This Iman is a buddy of that racist dictator in Malaysia who was the ex-Prime minister of Malaysia for 22 years. This Malaysian dictator name is Mahathir, an Indian Muslim from Kerala, India but called himself the son of the soil in Malaysia.

    This mother fcuker Mahathir is a pure racist and corrupt to the core, typical of the pedophile Mohammad practicing the mush condemned Apartheid policy in Malaysia.

    What the pedophile Mohammad did 1,400 years ago this mother fcuker Mahathir copied 100% and applied exactly during his reign in Malaysia.

    Phew! Life is just like HELL in Malaysia under Islamic rule, paying exorbitant basic services like electricity, telecommunications, tv licenses, water etc… and the Muslims are paid to stay in the office collecting salaries for doing nothing..

    90% of the taxes would come from the non-Muslims (30% of the population) to feed the lazy and no-brain 70% Muslims in Malaysia.

    Wondering why a Muslim country is backward? Because all these lazy and retarded Muslims are unproductive living in glamorous and hedonistic lifestyles at the expense of sweat and blood of non-Muslims.

    So what this Rauf propagates is exactly what is happening in Malaysia.

    America would be colonized like Malaysia and these Muslim bastards would tax the non-Muslims till they are bankrupt.

    These Muslims are literally parasites and must be exterminated the sooner the better before they spawn and swarm planet Earth, squandering earth natural resources.

    Why we are mad at the Mother Fcuking Muslims

    They just want freedom of religion what’s the rub here?/sarc off

    Freedom of religion means no freedom at all for non muslims! And the only muslims who get “Life, Liberty and the persuit of happiness” are muslim men. Women are worthless pieces of property whose only function is to sexually satisfy men, be their housekeepers and pump out endless quantities of babies so there will be plenty of mo’s to fight the endless and ongoing wars that islam requires.

    • Emily

      Well women can work if they so choose and the men have to support them so that none of the women’s extra work money is used. The women can use their money how they want. It is very different over there between our cultures but they are treated similarly to the men with some disadvantages like driving and having to cover themselves after they hit puberty.

      • AmericanMe

        “disadvantages like DRIVING and having to cover up” Yeah I’d say those are some disadvantages all right. How bout it’s legal to beat your wife? How bout you can become one of four wives? How bout you cannot vote? How bout if you get raped you need 4 male witnesses or you get stoned for being raped? How bout a womans testimony in court is worth 1/2 a man’s? How bout a woman can only inherit 1/2 as much as a man/ I’ve got more but I’ll let you think on these for a while.

    Imam Abdul Rauf is a Muslim isn’t he? So why did anyone expect him to tell the truth?

    Muslims are the biggest liars in the world. Can you believe that they’re still spouting that “Islam is the religion of peace”? Isn’t that a gasser?

    The next thing that Muslims will tell us is that “there aren’t any Muslim Suicide Bombers.”

      • Angel

        Actually, AmericanMe, if you read the article that was posted above by king, the man didn’t get arrested at the time he did the act. However, once his job fired him, then he DID get arrested. Also, did you know: the supreme court made a ruling that it is perfectly legal to burn the american flag ( it falls under first amendment rights ). So here would be a question to start asking everyone: If it is okay to burn the american flag and perfectly legal, then why was this man arrested for burning the koran? Shouldn’t that fall under first amendment rights as well? I mean if legal precedent is legal precedent. It’s a two-way street. Or is it?

The suit also alleges that the state revoked Sage’s corporate status in 2005 for failure to file annual reports.

    This is a terrible finding, at the same time a good reason to fight against it! I want America the way it was back in the 90s, not as wild and hectic as now!

    If Sharia law is applied, the American flag would have a crescent! Every single attempt of their founding fathers will be all for nothing!

    • admin

      Hi Jacob,

      Unfortunately there are many Americans who believe that Islam should continue to be allowed to advance here, in the name of freedom of religion. Me on the other hand doubts very much, that the Founding Fathers would have let Islam takeover in the name of freedom of religion.

  • Laura

    Who ever thought this guy was moderate? And the nature of Muslim/Sharia Law is to deceive and achieve World Domination. Anyone who is not muslim is seen as the enemy. How can we even measure how moderate so called moderates are?

    “… But if you don’t do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world. If this is not handled correctly, this crisis could become much bigger than the Danish cartoon crisis, which resulted in attacks on Danish embassies in various parts of the Muslim world. And if we do move, it will strengthen the argument of the radicals to recruit, their ability to recruit, and their increasing aggression and violence against our country.” …

    … “When Soledad O’BRIEN asked: “Did you reach out to 9/11 families before?” Imam Rauf said: “Yes” and then said “not all families, but to as many as we could reach, especially those who are very concerned about this issue.” But right after this interview, in the CNN-AC360-show with Anderson Cooper, Rosaleen Tallon, Sister of a firefighter killed in 9/11 tragedy said:

    “that’s a lie he never asked anybody amongst 9/11 families. Well, here Imam is saying, if this Mosque is not built then America will have to pay retribution??? Why retribution? I can’t accept that. Why not built this Mega Mosque in the Middle-East where people are extremely intolerant? They need to learn about tolerance not the New Yorkers or American! New Yorkers as well as Americans are all highly tolerant people. We are the most tolerant nation on Earth. Why we need to learn about so called tolerance for?”

    • eib

      Let me also say that the crimes of Christians do not excuse the crimes of Muslims.
      The intolerance of the West has been ephemeral and indefensible by Western standards.
      In Islam, intolerance is the rule, it is eminently defensible and a characteristic that will never depart the Ummah.
      Islam is profane, a mockery of tolerance.
