Idealized image of the Prophet Mohammed as a gentle, compassionate, radiant saint giving God's final revelation of truth to humanity, the Holy Koran.
FEISAL RAUF AND SUFI MYSTICISM, OR I’M FEELING THOSE GOOD VIBRATIONS
There are many sinister Moslem organizations controlled by radical Islamists engaged in a non-violent civilizational war (under the guise of civil and religious rights) to undermine our free way of life and Islamize our country. AMC, CAIR, MAS, MPAC, the largest and best known of these groups, have been somewhat successful in advancing their imperial cause forcing businesses and schools to conform to medieval customs, values and regressive Moslem laws. But perhaps the most beguiling, deceptive and subversive group of all is the American Sufi Moslem Association (ASMA*) headed by Feisal Abdul Rauf, the charismatic leader of the Ground Zero mega-mosque project in New York and an agent of Obama‘s Moslem outreach program.
*Also called the American Society for Moslem Advancement.
Soft spoken, affable and equipoised the friendly faced non-threatening Rauf practices Sufi meditation, mantra chanting and dervish dancing to enhance his personal magnetism, air of decency and spiritual powers which he skillfully uses to deceive, disarm and win over unbelievers: those he needs to advance his Sharia supremacist goals.
Indeed, Rauf's Sufism gives him no small edge over his non-mystical, radical friends when dealing with and influencing civic leaders, bureaucrats, clerics and politicians, and those well meaning dupes on the multicultural Left-the edge of an almost irresistible, hypnotic inner force that soothes, calms and elevates the feelings giving his unsuspecting listeners a psychic experience and sense of peace; this overwhelms their critical faculties and makes them feel good about Rauf the man and his seemingly noble plan to Americanize Islam: to bridge the (unbridgable*) divide between totalitarian Sharia law and our free, open, liberal way of life**. Especially duped by Rauf's good vibes are sensitive peace and love New Age types***. These have welcomed Rauf into their fold as one of their own when he's not of their kind.
*How do you bridge the gap between liberty and tyranny? The oppression of women, gays, religious minorities and individual human rights? How do you bridge the gap between cruel and unusual punishment and justice? Between amputations to pay for crime and simple jail time? The cultures of America and Islam are irreconcilable and unbridgable. America is America and Islam Islam and never the twain shall meet. (If anything It’s for the Islamic world to become more Americanized not for this country to be more Islamicized.) Those who say otherwise that “Islamic and American values overlap (Barack Obama);” or that “Islam is as American as apple pie (Bill Clinton)” are either liars or fools.
**By bridging the gap between American and Islamic culture what Rauf really means is America progressively moving up the Sharia Compliancy Scale, i.e., adapting to Moslem customs and laws, the real purpose of his Ground Zero mosque fraud of religious equality and interfaith peace. It's interesting to note that making this country more Islamic or “Sharia compliant” for the purpose of reconciling America and Islam is also one of Barack Obama's hidden goals (see ).
***New Agers are spiritual relativists and multi-culturalists who naively and wrongly believe that all religions and spiritual philosophies are in essence one and the same and meet at the top; and that conflicts between religions are misunderstandings that can be rationally settled through interfaith dialogue-a view not truly shared by Rauf and his supremacist friends who exploit these fools for their totalitarian ends of making Islam supreme over them.
THE IMAM’S NEW AGE MESSAGE OF COMPASSION AND PEACE
The core message of Feisal's phony New Age teaching, which hits home with the Left and makes him popular with them, is: "Lose your ego, and find your compassion." Compassion is an endearing emotional trait that joins us to those who suffer misfortune, bad luck or some terrible fate; and Rauf's message seems harmless and humane enough until you scratch below the surface and analyze what he means. For by "compassion" Rauf doesn't mean my compassion or your compassion or Jewish, Christian, Buddhist or even Socialist compassion. What he essentially and exclusively means by this term is ISLAMIC COMPASSION-the paragon and model of which is Rauf's spiritual guide and hero: the intolerant, murderous, power mad founder of Islam the prophet Mohammed*.
*Rauf says in his internet video “Losing Your Ego and Finding Your Compassion (see)” that Mohammed the last prophet [with the final revelation of truth] is the ultimate spiritual model for mankind: “we must make ourselves like him” are Rauf’s exact and troubling words expressed with much charm and tenderness. But in fact the real Mohammed of history, not Rauf’s sanitized saintly version, was a carnal, profane and sinful man; a virtual killing machine for Islam who reveled in the spilling of infidel blood as a sacrificial offering to please God. Not the kind of man most Americans and decent human beings would want as a model for themselves or their children.
Indeed, in Rauf's Sufi view the life of Islamic compassion was lived to perfection in word and deed by Mohammed the greatest prophet and servant of Allah, the all Compassionate, Merciful and Forgiving* creator of heaven and earth. For Rauf, as for all Sharia true Moslems, Mohammed is the exemplar of human charity, justice, enlightenment and peace; the ideal human being blessed by God with every virtue and spiritual gift, the human model that all believers must emulate if they're to win God’s love and saving grace. Indeed, as the story goes, Mohammed is the ultimate example of a believer who completely gave himself to Allah and sacrificed everything for him; who transcended his individuality, narrow ambitions and personal aims (the desires of his selfish, grasping, acquisitive ego) and surrendered himself body, soul and spirit to God's larger purposes and plans: the realization of world unity, justice and lasting peace under Islam's victorious, all-conquering flag-the only true solution to ending war, human conflict and injustice in this world.
*As Rauf reminds us in his sermons Mohammed opens each of the Koran's 114 books with the words: "In the name of God the Compassionate and Merciful." In Islam "Compassion" and "Mercy" are Allah's primary divine attributes. No doubt Rauf stresses Allah’s “compassion” for the bleeding heart Left to deceive them with the belief that real Islam differs little in substance from their emotional, well meaning liberalism. Indeed, Rauf has CNN’s Fareed Zakaria convinced that he’s a mystical Sufi reformer offering a “LIBERAL interpretation of Islam (see ),” when he’s on record saying that “Islam doesn’t need a reformation (see ).” Spoken like a true, stand pat, anti-progressive Islamic supremacist.
In short, from Rauf's viewpoint Mohammed achieved the New Age ideal of "losing his ego and finding compassion;" of finding the God of Compassion and Love and his world redeeming plan of perfecting human society-of which he was the glorious sword and instrument. 'It's not I who lives,' Mohammed believed, 'but Allah the Compassionate who lives inside me directing all I do with his love*.' Before he died the prophet of compassion, from the boundless generosity of his heart, raised his blood stained sword to heaven and declared eternal war on all mankind. Warning the kings of the earth and their peoples of the terrible consequences of unbelief Mohammed said: 'Believe in me or die! Believe in me or die! And if it pleases me to let you live I'll crush you with oppression.' Allah is love, compassion and all good things, but only to those who believe (see ).
*Every violent and criminal act committed and permitted by this terrible man from orgies of rape to mass murder and ethnic cleansing was justified by a special revelation from his God of Compassion, Mercy and Love.
MOHAMMAD: THE PROPHET OF COMPASSION FOR NEW AGE SEEKERS
For Imam Rauf there is only one real prophet, messiah and teacher for the New Age, and for all time to come, and that is the glorious militant prophet from Mecca. He's the absolute guide and guru in compassionate and empathetic living that New Age Leftists are searching for in their quest for universal solutions. For Mohammed is the only New Age guru with a comprehensive plan: political, social, legal and religious, for the unification and harmony of man under a single planetary regime-for saving humanity from division, conflict, injustice and war, which is what the collectivist New Age Left is looking for.
Indeed, forget Moses, Buddha, Christ and Krishna Mohammed is the only great religious figure of the past with a total, all-encompassing God perfected plan for ridding the earth of evil and saving suffering, ignorant, war torn humanity in this life and the next. Peace in this world, paradise in the next. Could there be a better deal than this? A greater religion or spiritual philosophy? A more humane and compassionate theology? Every true believing Moslem from Bin Ladin to Rauf agree: there’s nothing like Sharia Islam this side of eternity.
MOHAMMED’S MISSION OF COMPASSIONATE ISLAM, OR COMPLETING THE CONQUESTS OF JUDAISM AND CHRISTIANITY
Mohammed's historic mission of compassion, mercy and peace to save humanity from itself and from the damning sin of unbelief can be summed up this way:
There is only one true God and Creator of heaven and earth, Allah, who created all men to worship and fear him for their salvation and happiness in life and in death. Apart from Adam and Eve Allah first revealed himself to the patriarch Abraham father of the Hebrew and Arab peoples. Abraham, history's first monotheist, was promised by Allah to be the founder of a universal faith that would realize his kingdom and total rule on earth. Allah then revealed himself to Moses on Sinai and then to the Hebrew prophets that followed him, the last of which was Jesus of Nazareth founder of Christianity.
Judaism, the first monotheistic faith, failed in its God appointed mission to spread the worship of Allah worldwide going no farther in its conquests than the short lived empire of King Solomon*. Allah then raised up Jesus of Nazareth to succeed where Judaism had failed; though his followers surpassed Judaism in spreading Allah’s worship to mankind Christianity also failed in its calling to conquer the world as it stopped at the borders of the Roman Empire.
*Solomon’s kingdom stretched from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River in the east.
The reason that Jews and Christians failed to fully obey Allah's commands and extend his worship to every land was faint heartedness and lack of will in the use of power and force*.The worship of idols and false gods will not end until pagans and polytheists are forced to surrender to Allah; unless they're dragged kicking and screaming into the light by fire, sword and fear of death. There is no other way to establish Allah's kingdom of peace and justice on earth-a world political and religious society of one God, one faith, one political and legal system-except through war, holy war-endless, ceaseless, implacable, uncompromising war; war by any and all means; war by sword and subterfuge; war as the ideal method for purifying and saving the earth until evil, injustice and all false gods are destroyed. This was Mohammed‘s divine vision; to this “great” end he believed he was born; to this purpose he selflessly and "compassionately" devoted his life and demanded the same from his followers and successors.
*Prior to Mohammed's birth Jews and Christians fought pagan armies and states throughout their histories but there was never a Judeo-Christian doctrine of JIHAD: declaring universal war against them. God's kingdom would be established by the Messiah when he came (Judaism) or returned (Christianity). Islam believes that Mohammed was that promised Messiah and prophet bringing the message of eternal war (missing in Judaism and the Church) to fulfill Biblical prophecies of world peace-of beating all swords into plowshares.
FROM BIN LADIN TO FEISAL: JIHAD IS THEIR LODSTAR
Eternal war against unbelieving world fought by any and all means through violence and nonviolent deceit is what drives man like Bin Ladin, Ahmadinejad, Saudi King Abdullah and Imam Abdul Rauf-who has revealed his contempt for unbelieving Americans in his heedless, reckless, insensitive pursuit of his Ground Zero mosque. Indeed, all these men, like the prophet they emulate, "lost their egos and found their compassion" the Islamic way. They are selflessly and compassionately devoted to Mohammed’s utopian dream of a one world religious and political state; a universal Moslem brotherhood and caliphate. A nightmare of tyranny, oppression and fear; a dark medieval vision from hell hatched from the twisted brain of a cruel, vindictive, bloodthirsty man who’d stop at nothing to achieve his predatory aims. A man consumed with violence and hate who justified his atrocities and crimes (his deceptions, tortures, beheadings and rapes) as decreed by God for the good of Islam and mankind. In short, a man with the same plotting, evil, murderous mind of a Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot, and the other monsters of recent times. Feisal Abdul Rauf is Mohammed without the blood dripping sword using the weapons of deceit and lies, which the prophet used from time to time, to achieve the grand prize: the Islamizing of America.
