Check out the Ground Zero Mega Mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's oped piece at the subversive Huffington Post (Puff Ho) in support of the brutal crackdown and slaughter of the people of Iran, who marched for democracy in Iran last summer. Read this. He basically argues that the Islamic Republic of Iran shares much with the USA. And he says that negotiations must begin... Here he says that Islam and America are founded in the same principles. If this is not "Islamizing America" (from Ground Zero soon), than what is? (hat tip Armaros)
What President Obama Should Say About Iran 's Election Imam Feisal Abdul RaufChairman, Cordoba Initiative, Hugginton Post
President Obama has rightly said that his administration will not interfere with the internal affairs of Iran, unlike what happened in 1953. Now he has an opportunity to have a greater positive impact on Iranian-American relations.
He should say his administration respects many of the guiding principles of the 1979 revolution -- to establish a government that expresses the will of the people; a just government, based on the idea of Vilayet-i-faqih, that establishes the rule of law.
His administration understands that what is going on now in Iran is an attempt by the Iranian people to live up to their own ideals. Just as American democracy developed over many years, the United States recognizes that this election is part of the process of an evolving democracy in Iran.
That would send a resounding message to the Iranian presidential candidates and their supporters that President Obama understands the ideals of the Islamic Republic and that he seeks a peaceful and harmonious Iran that has the unquestioned support of a majority of its population.
As a result, President Obama may well find that no matter who is elected president of Iran, the chances of a negotiated rapprochement between the two countries would be far greater than it has been in the past 30 years.
Such a rapprochement will help resolve conflicts from Palestine and Israel through Iraq and Afghanistan to Pakistan where, contrary to popular belief, Iran and the United States have many common interests.
