Imam Rauf lies, and here is the proof. yesterday I posted about Rauf and his claim that shaira, or parts of it would be beneficial to the United States, and that it ahould be integrated within US law. He claimed that the bad parts of sharia like the stoning to death and the cutting off of hands would not be implimented, and challenged anyone to show where sharia law is used beyond Saudi Arabia and Iran. I showed the countries and entities using sharia in a previous post, and here, in Raufs own words show where he blatantly lies.
Here is what he said in the previous statement, “the only truly clashing area is the penal code, and no Muslim has the intention of introducing that to America. The penal code is the area that people in the Western world are worried about..."
Read the page from his book above, and decide for yourself whether Rauf lies. It is obvious he is practicing taqiyya, as a good Muslim should when feeling attacked.

Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf lies about Sharia
Yesterday I posted here about the Ground Zero Mosque Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf's appearance in Scotland, where he said this:
Rauf points out that “the only truly clashing area is the penal code, and no Muslim has the intention of introducing that to America. The penal code is the area that people in the Western world are worried about – but these are things that aren’t even observed today in most of the Muslim world. Apart from the Taliban and a few places like that, where do you see this happening?”.
I pointed out in yesterday's post that "if Muslims believe that the Sharia, including its penal code, is Allah's perfect and immutable law, why wouldn't they want to bring it to America and Europe?" And here's a big surprise: Rauf thinks the same way. He completely contradicted his statement above in his 2000 book Islam: A Sacred Law. Jihad Watch reader Kamala points out that in that book, he wrote this on page 58: "And since a Shari'ah is understood as a law with God at its center, it is not possible in principle to limit the Shari'ah to some aspects of human life and leave out others."
He is a smooth, slick liar, and he has deceived the government and media elites. But it is clear to an increasing number of people what his agenda really is.
