On eve of Obama's Ground Zero victory appearance, protestors in L.A. challenge Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Rauf / Reza Aslan's 'moderate Islam' show as stealth-jihad to mollify West into socio-political deference to Islam

Hammer Lectures at UCLA presented Imam Feisal Rauf of the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, May 4th 2011. A protest of Imam Rauf's professing his intentions as 'moderate' - was staged by Act for America's Shari Goodman and representatives of Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA) and the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI). Several counter-jihadists alleged the Imam's taqiya / jihadist deceptiveness, such as Z.O.A. West Executive Director Shelley Ventura-Cohen. Two idealistic Jewish liberals from Pasadena argued that liberal Jews believe Imam Rauf's professing himself a moderate Muslim. Univ of Calif Irvine adjunct lecturer, Gary Fouse, attempts to edify the liberals of the nature and tactics of Islamist imperialists in America.

Stealth Islamic supremacist summit: Ground Zero mosque Imam Rauf, Reza Aslan speak at UCLA by Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.org

The slick and smug imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, former front man and continuing board member for the Ground Zero mosque project, and the posturing adolescent Reza Aslan, appeared together last night at UCLA. It was a revealing harmonic convergence of stealth Islamic supremacists.

Dishonesty and disingenuousness are the golden threads running through the careers and public statements of both Rauf and Aslan. Rauf is the self-proclaimed "man of peace" who has won such renown as a "moderate" that both Bush and Obama sent him to Muslim countries on goodwill missions. But as Pamela Geller has explained:
It is clear that Rauf and other mosque leaders are not as moderate as they claim to be. Rauf has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood...The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated, according to a captured internal document, to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.” Rauf’s book What’s Right with Islam says on the copyright page that “this edition was made possible through a joint effort of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and the office of Interfaith and Community Alliance of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Funding for this project was provided by IIIT.” Both IIIT and ISNA are Muslim Brotherhood fronts, and ISNA was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case.
The Arabic translation of Rauf’s book What's Right with Islam is disturbingly entitled  A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of Post-9/11 America.  This indicates that he has planned for years to spread Islam and Sharia from the site of the 9/11 attacks -- belying his more recent claims that he intends the mosque to be a center for reconciliation and peace.

He has also been completely dishonest about the mosque project itself. Now it is a community center nowhere near Ground Zero, but when it was initially announced Rauf was forthright, saying: “New York is the capital of the world, and this location close to 9/11 is iconic.”  
That statement has now been scrubbed from the online version of the New York Times article in which it initially appeared.

Dennis Miller opines about the Ground Zero Mosque in his latest HBO special:

Aslan, for his part, is no less unsavory. Despite his pretentious puffery and literary mummery, he has revealed himself to be a arrogant gutter-minded buffoon who appears incapable of staking out or defending a coherent intellectual position, and instead (like Rauf) retails tired and oft-retreaded Islamic supremacist talking points about Muslim victimhood.
His Islamic supremacist ties and proclivities are becoming more ill-concealed by the day; nonetheless, he remains a heralded and media-saturated "moderate" Muslim. In reality, Aslan is a Board member of the National Iranian American Council, a group that genuine Iranian pro-democracy forces regard as an apologetic vehicle for the Islamic Republic of Iran. He has tried to pass off Iran's genocidally-minded President Ahmadinejad as a liberal reformer. He has called on the U.S. Government to negotiate with Ahmadinejad himself, as well as with Hamas -- that is, with two of the most barbaric and murderous adherents of Sharia.

Aslan has even praised the jihad terror group Hizballah as "the most dynamic political and social organization in Lebanon," as well as the Jew-hating, women-hating, kuffar-hating Muslim Brotherhood, which is dedicated in its own words to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within" -- including, presumably, the works of Andy Warhol. Aslan wrote: "The Muslim Brotherhood will have a significant role to play in post-Mubarak Egypt. And that is good thing." If, in 1932, someone had written that "the National Socialist Party will have a significant role to play in post-Weimar Germany, and that is a good thing," he would have rightly been called a Nazi sympathizer.
