Tapes of “moderate” Imam Rauf are coming

Attention, everybody who screamed “Islamophobic knuckle-dragging raaaaacist haters!!1!” in response to opponents of the Ground Zero mosque: stand by for reportedly damning audio.

Steve Emerson has unearthed 13 hours of audio tape of Imam Rauf. Emerson and his team of investigators has spent the past four weeks going through the newly found material. Rauf is a “radical extremist cleric who cloaks himself in sheep’s clothing.”
Among the shocking revelations Emerson’s team will reveal next week — they found Rauf:

  • Defending wahhabism – a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia
  • Calling for the elimination of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State.
  • Defending Bin Laden’s violence
  • Demonstrating that there is a lot more to this man than merely a cleric.
