Imam Feisal Rauf Will Never Build a $100 Million Mosque at Ground Zero
(2 Corinthians 11:14,15)
Six months ago, I shared with you that Imam Feisal Rauf was little more than a con artist and would never build a $100 million super victory mosque by ground zero. Last week, it was announced he was no longer part of the project, and was being replaced by Imam Abdallah Adhami. Adhami is simply the new figurehead for this project that is primarily about the Islamisation of the United States. What I wrote seven months ago is even more relevant today, in light of the fact Rauf is no longer part of this project.
The real story of the Imam of the "victory mosque at ground zero," Feisal Rauf, and the Islamisation of the United States! As God led us seven months ago to create the "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero," as a bold, visible, and ongoing response to the proposed victory mosque near that hallowed ground, I quickly educated myself on the people who owned the building, the leader of this new proposed mosque, as well as the deeper issue of the strategy Muslims were incorporating in the United States to become a significant part of the mainstream culture.
After 17 weeks of Sunday services at the "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero" at the NY Marriott by ground zero, and in preparation for opening our permanent home very soon, I have come to some solid conclusions about the proposed victory mosque by ground zero and the man who was heading the project, Imam Feisal Rauf. The fact is, this whole project has been one huge scam by the real estate developers and Rauf. There will NEVER be a mosque built at that location!
The owner of the building is front man, who just one year ago was waiting tables, and now "owns" over $50 million of New York real estate, including the building they propose to build the super mosque/swimming pool/smoothie bar/community center/inter-faith chapel, or whatever they are calling the project this week. Investigative reporting has uncovered his money man is an Egyptian-born man who has in the past supported terror groups.
Donald Trump defined their intentions when he offered them the price of the building plus a hefty 25% profit, pretty significant in a down real estate market. His offer was flatly refused as not being enough money, and I agree with his assessment that they are simply holding out for someone to buy the building at a ridiculous price to stop the project from going forward. Time will tell whether such a buyer materializes or not, but one thing is certain, the building owners would sell in a moment for a huge profit, and if they ever get such a deal, there will be no mosque built there!
Even if a buyer for the building doesn't come forward, there will still never be a mosque built in that building. The fact is, Rauf nor Adhami have EVER raised $100 million dollars in their lives and there is nothing to suggest they have the ability to even come close to raising such an amount of money.
Rauf is a confirmed slumlord, based on his legal issues stemming from buildings he owns in New Jersey that have received numerous citations and are currently in litigation by tenants for his failure to perform even the most basic maintenance problems. His third wife, Daisy Khan, is as radical as you will find. This has much to say about his character.
Rauf claims he is a bridge builder. Let me ask you a question. If you were a Muslim and a bridge builder, is putting a victory mosque 600 yards from the site where your Muslim brothers killed 3,000 innocent souls in the greatest act of terror on US soil how you would try to build bridges?
Rauf was out raising money nationally and internationally for his "ground zero victory mosque," and as I predicted, in the end, either the building will be sold or he will announce that he is abandoning the project for a host of reasons. Of course by this time, he's raised an unknown amount from the Islamic community as well as sympathizers, and his organization will pocket those funds and move on. That has happened and now we have the new Imam taking over.
There is no doubt in my mind Rauf is nothing but a con artist who has played the United States government over the years, and masterfully used this issue to not only pocket millions of dollars, but up the ante in ongoing goal by Muslims in the Islamisation of the United States. Muslims have actually stolen the playbook from the pro-homosexual movement in the United States, that 30 years ago set as its' goal making homosexuality part of the mainstream of culture, and has clearly succeeded in that goal.
They accomplished this by creating watch-dog groups who attacked anyone who spoke out against their deviant choice of sexual relations as homophobes, hate mongers, intolerant, and other derogatory names to silence their critics. They infiltrated the media to project homosexuality as a wonderful lifestyle choice. They targeted school children of every age to brainwash them there is nothing wrong with homosexual behavior. They set up political action groups to change and create laws to make them a special class of people with special rights. They have been extremely successful in accomplishing ALL of these goals!
Islam is now following the same road. They have watch-dog groups like CAIR who attacks anyone like myself, Michael Savage, and others who tell people the truth about Islam. They are currently working on infiltrating the media to make Muslims look like sympathetic figures. They are targeting school children of every age to brainwash them that Islam is a wonderful relgion of peace. They have many political actions groups who are working on creating laws to make Muslims a special class of people with special rights.
The problem is this. Islam has a very visible and documented 1400 year history of propagating hatred, violence, and death. This is indisputable. Since 9/11, there have been nearly 16,000 acts of terror worldwide committed by Muslims. Since 9/11, all of the thwarted acts of terror here in the United States have had one common thread, ISLAM. Many argue Christian commit acts of terror like the bombing of abortion clinics. The difference is that when people commit those acts in the name of Christianity, they are acting in opposition to what the Bible teaches, however when people commit acts of terror in the name is Islam, this is EXACTLY what the Qu'ran teaches!
Sharia Law that governs Islam, is archaic and barbaric. However, you will never hear Rauf or any Muslim denounce Sharia Law. You will also never hear any Muslim leader denouncing the never ending acts of terror around the world, only excuses for why those acts are carried out, much like Rauf called the United States complicit for what happened on 9/11.
Over the 1400 year history of Islam and according to the Qu'ran, Islam has always had the goal of turning every nation on earth into an Islamic nation. If anyone doubts this goal regarding the United States, you better wake up. Of course they will all deny this is their ultimate goal, but this is NOT what they teach in their mosques. By the way, there is no Islam in Malaysia, Islam in Iraq, Islam in Pakistan, and Islam in the United States. Islam is Islam everywhere in the world, and to be lulled into sleep thinking there is some "peaceful,' or "moderate" form of Islam that is taught here is pure foolishness.
I love you and care about you so much. The bottom line is in the end, the owners of the building where the proposed victory mosque is to be built and/or the new Imam will walk away one day soon with millions of dollars. There will be no victory mosque by ground zero. That has all been a cleverly orchestrated con game by Rauf and the owners of the building and their new Imam front man. By the way, they are free to sue me for libel or slander if they feel anything I have said is not 100% true, but I won't be holding my breath for that to happen.
Fortunately, the Islamisation of the United States has just begun. We can either sit back and watch it happen, or speak out and not let this religion of hatred, violence, and death become a dominate force in our culture. That will remain to be seen. As a Christian, and one who ministers to over 2.4 million people worldwide daily, I can only close by saying that we must continue to share with this lost world the hope and love of Jesus Christ and let all people, including the 1.3 billion worldwide who have bought into the lies of Islam, that faith in Jesus who was and is God, is the only hope for each man and for our world.
***(an email I got the other day) "Bill -You & your team have really been on my mind & in my thoughts. I strongly believe you're doing things the right way, & it breaks my heart that because you give the gospel for free - because you're out doing things God's way - you don't have financial support from the American church to get out in the secular marketplace & to go toe-to-toe with false prophets @ Ground Zero. My wife & I gave a gift today which isn't close to meeting your needs or requests, but I pray God blesses it with multiplication.
I want to encourage you - your blunt honesty & the fact you do things the right way (no professional fund raising companies, no buildings or extravagant salaries) are why we're giving today. It's time for me & other Christians to put our money where our mouths are & quit paying mortgages & utilities for big buildings. Please keep telling the truth, God's truth. If the finances don't come in, God forbid, and you are forced to close down any part of your ministry, you have done your part by being obedient before God. It would be the rest of us who failed.
Thank you for being on the front lines! Thank you for leading & feeding me spiritually, both in word & deed! I pray today that God move hearts in a powerful way and deliver far more money than you've asked for. May He raise up more faithful partners, freeing us from fear & making us better able to hear His commands and then, more importantly, obey them. I realized about a month ago that you are my preacher. Thank you for the daily word. I promise I will lift you up in prayer & give financially to LivePrayer. I pray our Lord bless you & keep you. In God's love."
As we head into the last 10 days of January, we still need to bring in $30,000 to cover our monthly operating budget. In addition, we need to start raising the funds to open the permanent home of the "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero," that includes airing the Liveprayer TV program on superstation WWOR in the New York City media market.
The key is the $500,000 we need by the end of this month, $90,000 of that is needed right away. After praying, the most efficient way to get this initial amount in on time is to break it up into 100 $5,000 units. So far, we have had 10 units committed. In addition, one dear friend can only take 1/2 unit and is looking for someone to take the other half. Another friend of the ministry has issued a challenge to match the next 3 units. That means your unit will be doubled!
We will be placing a gorgeous plaque in the lobby of the new center with 100 engraved leafs, each one in honor or memoriam of someone special in the life of the person giving the $5,000 unit for that leaf. Also, for a special gift of $100,000, we will name the new chapel in honor of a person the donor designates.
In addition, I need 100 people to give a gift of $1,000 for the "9-11 Memorial Prayer Room." We will also have a special plaque there with 100 leafs engraved in honor of the person the donor designates.
--->Lastly, to help cover the construction costs of the new "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero," we have 10,000 bricks that people can personally engrave for $100 each, that will form the main walls of the sanctuary where souls will be saved, and a nation will be turned back to God and His Truth!!! This is an incredible opportunity to honor someone you love, and memorialize them at a place millions of people will visit, and God will use to bring revival to this nation!!! To get 1 or multiple personally engraved bricks, please go to: www.liveprayer.com/brick
I am asking you today to pray about taking 1 or more of the units we are offering, or at least one engraved brick. I realize for many this could be an incredible sacrifce, but when have you ever had the opportunity to be part of something that can literally change the spiritual direction of this nation???
HOW MUCH GREATER IS IT TO GIVE TO A PROJECT THAT WILL GUARANTEE TO BRING GOD'S TRUTH TO THE MARKETPLACE, GIVE HOPE TO THE HURTING, SALVATION TO THE LOST, AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TURN THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH???
NOW IS THE TIME AND THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!
Obviously, anyone who is able to give a gift of any amount is encouraged to do so. The Bible tells us to give according to our ability to give, and for some that may be just $5, for others it could be $50,000. I am asking everyone to do your best to help me between now and the end of the month.
However, I am asking you to pray today about helping me with at least one of the $1,000 or $5,000 units. I know there are people reading this right now who have the ability to make that special one-time sacrifice between now and the end of the month!!!
