More Credibility Problems For the Ground Zero Mosque Imam

Every time the Ground Zero mosque’s Imam Faisel Abdul Rauf tries to convince us of his good intentions, more disturbing information about him comes to light that undercuts his credibility.

The latest was revealed yesterday by the New York Post and on the “O’Reilly Factor.” It seems that Imam Rauf has been hanging around with one of those Truthers who claims that the 9/11 attacks were an “inside job” by the U.S. government and corporate America, for which Muslims have been made the scapegoats.

This Truther’s name is Faiz Khan. It seems that Rauf and Khan were partners in the founding and governance of the American Society for the Advancement of Muslims. Moreover, Khan has preached at least a couple of times at the former Burlington Coat Factory where the proposed mega mosque and Islamic community center is planned to be built.

Perhaps hanging around with a 9/11 Truther helps explain Imam Rauf’s own statement shortly after 9/11 that American foreign policy was an “accessory” to the “crime” of 9/11.

When asked to comment on his newly revealed close association with a 9/11 Truther, Imam Rauf – who has been making the rounds on CNN, ABC, and before the Council on Foreign Relations – suddenly clammed up.

And talking about Imam Rauf’s speech to the Council on Foreign Relations yesterday, Rauf said that “It is absolutely disingenuous — as many have said — that that block is hallowed ground.” Tell that to the loved ones of those who perished on 9/11, when body parts have been located a few hundred feet from the proposed site and when the building presently on the site was hit with pieces from one of the planes that was crashed into the World Trade Center towers.

Accustomed to censorship in many Muslim lands, Rauf also suggested a “media blackout” of coverage of suicide bombers.

What’s next? A media black-out of coverage of his controversial Ground Zero mosque?
