Can someone ask this Imam to shut the hell up?
I mean, why can't he just shut up and go away. Every time he comes up with an idea or with a sentence, he causes trouble--primarily for Muslims in the US. Of course, the First Amendment protects dumb speech. And this Imam is a specialist in the production of dumb speech. And this Imam, why does he not speak during other times of the year and not around Sep. 11? And don't you like it when Muslims/Arabs on the defensive get frantic to remind Americans that they are Americans too? "This will strengthen the radicals in the Muslim world, help their recruitment, this will put our people -- our soldiers, our troops, our embassies, our citizens "
Rauf, Jeremiah Wright, and Bill Ayers are narcissists, but liberals don't see the relation because Muslims aren't part of their consciousness as anything but idea, so we get the idea of tolerance not what's necessary to produce it. Focusing on abstractions and principle more than people, liberals ignored what they saw immediately with Ayers and Wright and partly as a result fascists now are speaking publicly in NY and Muslims are worried less about principle than their safety.

"Tariq Ramadan of all people says the organizers of Park51 should choose another spot to build on."

Josh Marshall last month
"We grew up in America where Islam, as a domestic social or cultural reality, was close to invisible."
As I said then, that statement comes from someone who called the founding of Israel "a necessary crime".
Ideas are not people.
