Inside Imam Rauf's Shady Washington-Riyadh Finance Trail

The full post is here, "Imam Rauf's Hush-Hush Taxpayer-Subsidized Middle East Tour — Plus, Inside the Victory Mosque's Shady Washington-Riyadh Finance Trail."


Tammy Bruce identifies Imam Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan as "Obama's favorite Hillary Clinton Department funded Islamists." And while "Little Miss Daisy" made some rounds on the Sunday talk show circuit, our "bridge-building" Imam is little to be found. He has turned up, of course, in Bahrain. Most press outlets don't seem to care, but see the New York Post, "'Ground Zero' Imam on Mideast Tour to Make Islam 'Americanized'":

Ground Zero

The imam behind the plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero surfaced yesterday far from the controversy -- in Bahrain, where he's on a taxpayer-funded trip to the Middle East to spread good will.

Appearing in public for the first time in weeks, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, speaking at a mosque near Bahrain's capital of Manama, said he wants to "Americanize" Islam -- but dodged questions about the uproar over his planned mosque and community center.

Rauf spoke against fanaticism, saying, "This issue of extremism is something that has been a national-security issue -- not only for the United States but also for many countries and nations in the Muslim world."

"This is why this particular trip has a great importance because all countries in the Muslim world -- as well as the Western world -- are facing this . . . major security challenge," Rauf told Associated Press Television News in a brief interview.

The cleric also said he was working on a way to "Americanize Islam," but didn't offer any details.

No details...

That makes sense, since the dude's looking for $100 million large to help finance the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. No doubt sharia finance
networks will be coming up with some of that cash, news of which of course wouldn't go over so well with some of the 9/11 families now speaking out in New York. Indeed, opponents of the mosque might not have the full details on the depth of Imam Rauf's scam, which is more fundamentally implicated into the Obama administration than has been noted by most commentators.
