Glenn initially had the same reaction many Americans had to the news of the Cordoba Initiative (the 13 story mega mosque to be built a few blocks from Ground Zero); he believed that it was a slap in the face but un-Constitutional to block due to the freedom of speech and religion tenets of the Constitution. Even though Beck does not state that he agrees that the mosque is a victory statement by radical islamists, he does follow the breadcrumb trail proving that the mosque probably should not be built starting with Feisal Abdul Rauf – the imam behind the mosque. I am sure he obtained massive amounts of research from Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs and Stop Islamization Of America; the biggest proponent of blocking this mosque who is behind yet another protest against this obamanation (oops) abomination on September 11th, 2010.
Here is the breadcrumb trail starting with Imam Rauf who is a key figure in the Perdana Global Peace Org. who is the largest contributor ($366,000) to Free Gaza who sponsored the 6 ship flotilla that attacked Israel recently who is also being helped by Hamas supported groups. Free Gaza is also supported by terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn who are close buddies of Obama who is also close to Rashid Khalidi who is currently planning a second flotilla to be launched soon that will be called “Audacity of Hope” (Obama’s second book and Jeremiah Wright’s speech). Glenn also speaks to how Elena Kagan (globalist lawyer) and Hillary Clinton are tied to this circle. The State Department’s involvement comes from funding a trip for Imam Rauf (at the taxpayer’s expense) to the Middle East under the pretense of muslim outreach when in all actuality it may be a way for Rauf to raise $100 Million to build Cordoba House, the jihadists’ victory symbol on conquered land.
(Also, take the time to check out Greg Gutfeld’s idea for testing the tolerance of the islamists by building a gay, muslim bar next to the mega mosque. He’s serious folks.)
If you haven’t heard the name Rashid Khalidi before, you may want to peruse this. Here’s an excerpt:
