Feisal Abdul Rauf Coming to Portland

The Ground Zero mosque imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf is coming to Portland, Oregon Wednesday, April 27 at 5PM at the Crystal Ballroom.  Protests are planned, and if you can add your presence to the voices that evening, please do so. 

Here are some details:

Here is more from the Victoria Taft show in Portland, OR

As you may have heard, Ground Zero Mosque Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf is coming to Portland (see story here) and will be a featured speaker at the "Q Gathering," a yearly conference on Christianity in culture. This year's theme concerns Christianity in a post Christian culture. The Imam will be speaking on Wednesday evening and I plan an informational picket at 5pm outside the Crystal Ballroom in downtown Portland. Please bring your hand made sign containing perhaps statements the Imam has made about America, Bin Laden, Jihad and Shariah.
I believe in open dialogue and many points of view. I believe in free speech, but I've let it be known that this man is not who he says he is and is not the voice of moderation--far from it. This week I'm featuring on my program people who have been explaining why Imam Rauf is not the moderate he claims. Please see the links to those interviews below.
Andy McCarthy, Robert Spencer, Brigitte Gabriel and others are being featured on my program to explain the Imam and his radical beliefs, the effrontery of a proposed mosque built as close as possible to Ground Zero, and his past comments about America being deserving of being attacked on 9/11.

As Victor Davis Hansen has pointed out:
To his liberal defenders, he is a sort of respectable Deepak Chopra who at respectable places like Aspen mouths pop platitudes of interfaith tolerance — so much so that our own State Department has employed him, apparently for quite some time, for goodwill gallivanting abroad. 
But to those in the Middle East, he is known equally well for doing what he can, as a Western liberal, to contextualize terrorism, bin Laden, and Islamic extremism within the tired Western postmodern tropes of cultural relativism: “The United States’ policies were an accessory to the crime that happened” on 9/11; “In fact, in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the U.S.A.”; “The U.S. and the West must acknowledge the harm they have done to Muslims before terrorism can end”; “The issue of terrorism is a very complex question”; “The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians. But it was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresden and Hiroshima, neither of which were military targets” — blah, blah, blah, like all the thinkery that one hears in the faculty lounge.
Please contact me if you are interested in using our first amendment right to picket against the Ground Zero Imam. He's fortunate to be living in a country that celebrates free speech even as he calls for America to turn to Shariah.

Many of you have been involved in fighting for liberty,  for American values and other worthy goals, but if we don't fight back against the lies told by these people who wish to compromise us we won't have a country or liberty to defend. 

Please forward this to your list of interested friends. I'll be there at 5pm on Wednesday. I hope to see all of you there.

A Christian Woman Who Has Lived Under Shariah said...

This is from an article written by Andrew C. McCarthy: "Feisal Abdul Rauf is the imam behind the “Cordoba Initiative” that is spearheading plans to build a $100 million Islamic center at Ground Zero, the site where nearly 3,000 Americans were killed by jihadists on 9/11. He is also the author of a book called What’s Right with Islam Is What’s Right with America. But the book hasn’t always been called that. It was called quite something else for non-English-speaking audiences. In Malaysia, it was published as A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of America Post-9/11. Now it emerges that a “special, non-commercial edition” of this book was later produced, with Feisal’s cooperation, by two American tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood: the Islamic Society of North America and the International Institute of Islamic Thought".
