not possible

Submitted by optional, Oct 26, 2010 22:35

@art: it's possible but highly unlikely that they consist of different people since islam requires prayer 5 times a day and to think that his devout congregation would fail to fulfill their holy requirements in just too horrible to imagine since they can be judged as apostates and not true believers. so methinks 500 was a lie, cool taqiyya style.

 

shades of arafat?

Sep 30, 2010 04:32

I've been waiting for the media to show the video proof they already have of the lies being told by these people, ie., Rauf less than 2 wks before going on US tv interviews telling clearly, in english, how he was surprised by the controversy, more than once saying he would not have started the gzm if he knew the hurt it would cause. etc., while on arabic tv prior is reported to have said in arabic that he knew exactly what would happen, & it was just as he'd expected,... but after this wed. morn snake-oil session with Sharif, I guess it's a good thing I wasn't holding my breath while waiting? Also, I couldn't help notice that the largest "group" of supporters (6-8?) for the gzm the media could find on 9/11/10 were holding a banner for socialistnetwork, hey, isn't that the AyersDorns-sds-weather underground "crowd", & weren't they also involved in the floatilla-ambush-setup? Wow, Mr President, it really is a small world, & getting smaller? I thought I also heard Rauf say they were so pleased with the floatilla ("pleased"???) they're already planning another, with a new boat called the audacity of hope, ...

 

Why Is This IPT's Concern?

Submitted by More Concerned About Terrorists, Sep 4, 2010 10:04

I have all the respect and admiration in the world for the great research that the IPT has done and continues to do on well-documented extremist groups and open terrorist organizations. I have donated money to support the great work and super leadership of the IPT and I have promoted it , and truly respect what it has done.

But in this case, I am confused about something. I am looking through the article to see the link to terrorism or to a documented extremist group, and I don't see it here. If there is a link, in my opinion, it should be clearly communicated.

What am I missing? Given all the terrorist threats and organizations calling for terrorism in America today, why is Rauf's mosque and its IRS filings are a priority for the IPT? Is IPT going to start investigating the IRS filings for others planning to build a house of worship? I am concerned about the slippery slope here.

With all due respect, I think that is a fair question that you should consider.

I don't see where IPT is writing about the AMSA "mosque" (non-existent or otherwise) as harboring extremists, promoting hate tracts, calling for terrorism, etc. So I genuinely don't understand why this is part of the IPT mission.

There are plenty of well documented extremist organizations promoting violence that are very active that I can share with IPT, if that information is needed, including some coming to NYC next week.

Hopfeully the KORTOBA mosqe will rise near ground zero, that will be a reminder of a symbol of hate for Americans to see everyday, hopefully this will wake us up to what these muslim groups' agendas really are. GOD bless America.

 

Response to Art's math calculation on number of worshipers daily

Submitted by Th. stearns, Sep 3, 2010 11:19

@Art, who makes the case for 500 total congregants a week being computed on a 25 per day , five times per day basis.

But note the application's use of the word "daily"--500 DAILY.

The application said the group was already operating as a prayer center for between 450 and 500 daily worshipers
