The Hate Monger

Words from Imam Feisal Rauf, just now, in Bahrain:

"Bahrain is already a bridge but we need to put more traffic on it," he told a group of religious experts representing Islam, Christianity and Judaism, at the majlis of Gulf Council for Foreign Relations chairman Dr Mansoor Al Arayedh in Segaiya.

"How many Americans know Bahrain has a US naval base and a Christian and Jewish community and that Bahraini Ambassador to the US Huda Nonoo is Jewish?

"How many Muslims know there is a sizeable community of Shi'ites in Bahrain? So we need to be more proactive in educating Muslims."


"We are Christians, Jews and Muslims, but one of our faults is instead of worshipping God, we worship our religion and use that to cause division between us," said Imam Feisal.

"The sense of brotherhood and unity that the prophets had for each other as servants of the true God is the primary lesson we should all learn.

"The demand is on us (Muslims) to feel a special brotherhood with the Christian and Jewish faiths and certainly our own.

"We shouldn't see differences, but see the differences that unite us and are part of one theme.

"It's time we also saw that if we followed the laws of Moses, Jesus and Mohammed they were not opposed to each other."

This, lest anyone not know it, is the guy the Foxobeckains would have us believe is a terrorist.

[On a somewhat related note, here's a question for those that claim the mosque issue is about respect for "hallowed ground" (to which there are strip clubs and fast-food joints closer than the proposed center): What shall you say to those, including MLK III, who are offended by and see as deeply disrespectful Glenn Beck's self-aggrandizing stunt at the Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of the "I have a dream" speech? Just askin'.]
