Obama Advisor Sees America As Place of Islam’s Revival

The Sociopath’s administration is full of nothing but anti-American freaks. Now, we find that his Advisor on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships (whatever that means) thinks that America is the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.

Over my dead Christian body!!!

Obama adviser: U.S. ‘ideal place for renewal of Islam’

Religion aide closely linked to imam seeking to build Ground Zero mosque

By Aaron Klein – WorldNetDaily - July 20, 2010


Eboo Patel

A religion adviser to President Obama has close ties to the imam who wants to build a 13-story Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero. The two have been documented together discussing America as “the ideal place for a renewal of Islam,” WND has learned.

In February, Obama named a Chicago Muslim, Eboo Patel, to his Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Patel is the founder and executive director of Chicago-based Interfaith Youth Core, which says it promotes pluralism by teaming people of different faiths on service projects.  

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim leader behind the plan to build the Islamic center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero, wrote the afterword to Patel’s 2006 book, “Building the Interfaith Youth Movement: Beyond Dialogue to Action.” Patel is listed as one of 15 “Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow” on the website for the American Society for the Advancement of Muslims, or ASAM, which is led by Rauf.

In Patel’s 2007 book, “Saving Each Other, Saving Ourselves,” he recounts discussing with Rauf the future of Islam in the U.S. Rauf “understood the vision immediately and suggested that I visit him and his wife, Daisy Khan, at their home the following evening,” Patel recalled…. “The living room of their apartment on the Upper West Side was set up like a mosque, with prayer rugs stretched from wall to wall,” wrote Patel in his book.

Continued Patel: “I arrived at dusk, prayed the maghrib prayer with Daisy and Imam Feisal and then talked with them about how America, with its unique combination of religious devotion and religious diversity, was the ideal place for a renewal of Islam.”

“In the twentieth century, Catholicism and Judaism underwent profound transformations in America,” Rauf observed. “I think, this century, in America, Islam will do the same.”

Patel boasts of a “critical mass” of Muslims in the U.S. “Islam is a religion that has always been revitalized by its migration,” he wrote. “America is a nation that has been constantly rejuvenated by immigrants. There is now a critical mass of Muslims in America.”

  1. I’m certainly not against Islam or Muslims. In fact, if they were to rebuild the muslim faith in america, that would be a good thing. The base of the muslim religion is in extremeist countries, this is the problem. You are dealing with an uneducated mass following who are indoctrinated at an early age. Building this religion with questioning, reflection, and education in the western world would go a long way in repairing and healing the muslim faith which has been hijacked by radicals. That said; no religious institution should be built on or near ground zero. I actually hate to break it to everyone but there is no God and therefore makes religion outdated and obsolete. Once we educate the people to what is really going on, we can bypass religion altogether. People can stop putting false hope in a false deity and take responsibility for their own lives.

    • Serf (appropriately called),

      Let’s get right to it and spare everyone any huffing and puffing:

      If there is no God, then my belief is just as valid as your unbelief.

      Good luck!

    • Ignorant people who understand everything in life (except Engineering) from rote memorization of one book, get violent when faced with disagreement by others and feel peace occurs when everyone else agrees with (or, at least, submits to) their views… that’s tyranny, what we started our own country and have a 2nd Amendment to our Constitution to not have. Unfortunately, the idea that everyone has a right to their beliefs (and even the legitimacy of such beliefs or lack thereof) may not be accepted by everyone– lack of reciprocity does not bode well here.

  2. “But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.” John 19:15

    Six words that ring throughout history: We Have No King But Caesar. A significant turning-point for a nation. In that very moment, God was rejected and the State – a substitute savior – was chosen to rule over them. Make no mistake: the people who made this decision were religious, believed in God, even “spiritual.”

    Ahh, yes.

    It didn’t matter that there were many who did follow Jesus; when those in leadership rejected their rightful King, their nation suffered destruction and their people were scattered.
    It doesn’t matter that America is predominantly a Christian nation. When the very people in charge refuse to honor the rightful rule of God, we, too, will be overtaken by secular and religious tyrants.

    You know you feel it, it really is tangible now. You see what is happening. You have these moments where you are at once fascinated and horrified. Just when you think it couldn’t get any more strange, a new level of absurdity seems to be achieved. You are outraged but feel there is nothing you can do, perhaps. You know the vast majority of Americans are not on-board with what is happening – but it is still happening.

    Goodbye, America. Hope you enjoy Islam! There’s still hope, it’s just not in the State.

    Microserf,
    I hate to break it to you, but there IS a God and his name is Yahweh and He is in control of this whole mess that is going on in front of your eyes. He is also shortly to return and right now He is gathering up the few souls that are left in this world who will turn to Him. Tribulation, as in the book of Revelation, will come soon upon this earth and there is very little time for the unsaved to say yes to the free gift of eternal life.

    The reason why things suddenly seem to be getting worse for Amerika is because of the Muslim that has hijacked our country’s highest office. This Sociopath has turned our country against the Israelites in his heart and no amount of lying is going to convince Yahweh that the U.S. is supportive of Israel any more. God, Yahweh is slowly taking away the blessings of prosperity that have been ours ever since we became allies with Israel. Not only that, Yahweh is in the process of trying to get those who are mired in sin to turn back to His Son and get right with Him. By allowing judgment to be heaped on on our country Yahweh is hoping we will have no place to turn but to Him and to His Son Yeshua/Jesus.

    John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Take a moment Microserf and bow your knees and confess that you aren’t able to save yourself. If is true, Yeshua/Jesus died for our sins and we are all sinners, His gift of eternal life is free for the asking. If you will submit to Him by asking Him into your heart and telling Him you are sorry, then turn from your sins, from lying and cheating and the rest. (Don’t worry, once you accept Yeshua/Jesus as your Savior, the Holy Spirit helps you with all this.) Then, thank Him for His Son’s GREAT sacrifice and then tell your friends that you have found the Truth through Jesus/Yeshua. You will be so surprised by the peace that will suddenly wrap around your soul and the wisdom that comes from Him/Yahweh who is most high.

  4. Ideal place for revival of Islam? I thought that was Iran.

  5. Terry, tell that to the people of Haiti and untold other places……I guess God ain’t third world, and God ain’t black,oops….the president is though.

    • the fraud is not the president,until he proves to the American people he was elected in accordance with the Constitution! he has not done this yet,there fore he is an illegal alien.And a fraud.

  6. Terry from CO

    Just like the U.S., Haiti has had bad leaders that have drawn them into this downward spiral that the world finds itself in.

  7. Microserf! Go frikin live with the muslims then! get the hell out of America. You have done pissed me off.

  8. If Islam is a “religion,” I am the Queen of Sheba.

    Islam is nothing more than a 7th Century, bass-ackward, primitive and violent political movement that treats its women little better than cattle, and has enslaved, murdered or maimed countless millions for 14 centuries.

    All it really is is a cult of pedophiles.

    The civilized world had better face the reality of what they are truly dealing with with these illiterate camel-washers, before its too late.

    -Dave

  9. I’m amazed how you can get a group of seemingly intelligent people discussing all topics important, but lose their minds and all sense of rationality when it comes to religion. Dave, Islam is a religion, an old one at that. Is it political?,, you betcha, just like every other religion including catholicism. The Vatican is one of the most corrupt political entities on this planet (since you brought up pedophilia). Tina, I don’t wish to live with the muslims, but muslims live right here in America too and we had better learn to all get along. Listen to yourselves, I have said nothing too outlandish nor provocative, yet you go nuts and become irrational about what is probably no more than a myth, but probably a purposeful deception by the higher powers. The hate and damage caused to societies by religious radicals, christian, jewish or muslim, proves my point.

  10. Microserf,

    The problem is, you have blinders on your eyes and stoppers in your ears. Even if you were able to see and hear the truth, which is right in front of your eyes, the hardness of your heart will not let the light of the truth shine through. You are lost!!!

    I pray Lord Yahweh in Yeshua’s name that you could take the blinders, the stoppers and the hardness from Microserf and open up to him Your Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding of your great Love that you showed by sending your only Son to die in our place. Open up and reveal your truths to Microserf so that he may see the error of his beliefs and unbelief. Please have mercy upon him because he knows not what he speaks of. I trust you Father Yahweh because you said you wish, that ALL would come to the wisdom of the salvation of Your Son Yeshua/Jesus, so I know Lord that You truly care for Microserf and I pray that You will intervene. We know Lord that you have given us free will to choose and we pray that Microserf will choose right. Thank you Almighty God, Father for your abiding love, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth and in Microserf’s life as it is in Heaven. Amen and Amen

  11. Terry, Thank-you for the thougfhts and prayers, I may be somewhat lost and searching for answers, yes. My search so far has brought me to this point, so no, I don’t have blinders on nor stoppers, my eyes and ears are wide open. My heart is not hard but at times unreasonably soft, part of the problem possibly. In short I’m a guy with a few university degrees, so I’m not dumb, I’m not blind either. I am well read on the topics I speak of. I may be wrong but my open search has brought me this far, I will see what the rest of the journey and search brings. I realize I have latched onto a right wing discussion site here. I am not right nor left, I am not republican nor democrat, I am not liberal nor conservative…I am me………….I believe what I believe (so far), respect my beliefs as I do others……..the journey and search continues….

    Microserf,
    It’s interesting that you chose that name for yourself. In the kingdom of the most high, Yahweh, our Father, seeks for those who will become small and insignificant so that he can raise them up in his time. We are to be like little children to him, tagging along next to him and depending on him for our every need. He wants us to be meek and shy, even to have fear in him, because of how big and powerful he really is. But it is so much more than that, once we find Yahweh and His Son Yeshua/Jesus, it is now also “our” power over the enemy that he gives to us. If we delve into His word, the Holy Bible, he opens up truths that he has designed for just that particular moment in our life. Go ahead, if you have a Bible, go get it and open it up and point at a scripture and see if He won’t just give you a revelation about it. When we go to him with even the simple Lord’s Prayer, which you will find in the Book of Matthew; Chapter 6, Verses 9 through 13. When you pray he will come right along next to you and whisper what you need to pray for in your ear. And while we are praying, he wants us to ask him for what we need too. The Bible is a very powerful book, more powerful than any old book satan can come up with, and after all, isn’t that the war we are really fighting?

    I wish you the best in your search Serf, I know that if you seek Him, you will find Him!!!
    God bless that search!

  13. Terry, once again thank-you for your encouragement. I honestly believe there is a higher power, I’m just not sure God is it. There is more evidence for the existence of aliens than there is for God. I guess that’s where faith comes in. Getting back to islam versus christianity.. I believe all religions have something to offer, they all have good in them, it’s the perversion of the texts that makes it bad. I have read the bible, the koran and the baghavad gita. Islam is the religion that has the most proof that their prophet, Mohammed actually existed, he was egotistical and somewhat of a mobster, but he exixted. There is scant evidence that Jesus ever existed at all. The bible is a highly abridged, mistranslated text full of contradictions, hate and violence. the Koran is not written in chronological order, and Mohammed gradually grew more and more paranoid and grandiose. If there is a God, the texts don’t do it for me, we have older texts and even books/gospels that weren’t included due to political reasons at the nicene council. My nom de plume comes from a novel by Douglas Copeland. Questioning the status quo is how we progress and educate. We used to believ the world was flat. All of science is being rewritten , evolution, dark matter, dark energy, origins of the moon, planets, earth, panspermia is now a main stream science discipline. I am ready to learn all, I just find it hard to listen to pedophiles, murders and criminals (vatican) pontificate about how it is and always will be. A free and open questioning mind is the best gift God gave us.

  14. microserf,

    Pedophilia is in direct contradiction to Biblical and Christian teachings.

    Not so with Islam. Islam winks at it, even encourages it, as did it’s founder, who “married” a nine year old girl, when he wasn’t out raping, pillaging, and killing infidels.

    BTW, those Catholic priests who diddled those children are not Christian by any definition you can find. Just because someone claims to be a Christian does not mean they actually are.

    Islamists, one the other hand, are only carrying out what they are instructed to do by the Q’uran (ever bothered to read it? Any of it?), and that is to either convert, tax, or kill every member of the human race wherever they are found – and that includes you.

    Should the day come when your head is being lowered onto that chopping block, and some illiterate Gomer with camel-breath named Akhmed is raising that dull, rusty sword above your head (and that is not as far-fetched as you might think), you just keep repeating to yourself how “peaceful” and “tolerant” the “religion” of Islam is for as long as you are able.

    The only resemblance to a religion Islam possesses, if any, is that it is a death cult, as death has followed it everywhere it has been for the last 14 centuries.

    Sure, Chritianity and Bhuddism had their violent periods, too, but they matured.

    Islam has not, nor will it ever, as violence is the foundation it was built around.

    -Dave

  15. Terry from CO

    Thank you Dave for putting the truth about Islam out there.

  16. Dave, I have indeed read many of the `holy`scriptures. I agree Christianity has matured, but what a violent deceitful past. to say Islam will not one day mature as well is presumptuous of yourself. In may indeed one day. The crux of the article which we are all commenting on says just that; that America would be a good place for it to mature because we are educated and tolerant and able to question. Just as those catholic priests aren`t christian, I suppose those who twist and pervert islam are not muslim. Listen I am not here to defend the muslim religion, I believe we`d all be better off without any religion. I will defend people`s right to believe what they want and to have faith in whatever they want as long as it doesn`t impinge on my beliefs, rights or way of life. You wanna wear a hijab when it`s 100 degrees out, go ahead, I ain`t gonna. You wanna go to church on Sundays, not eat meat on Fridays , not take elevatorsd on Saturdays or not eat pork because you think it`s gonna get you into heaven, then go ahead. I believ that if there is a God, he could give 2 shits what I`m eating or what rituals I`m performing so long as I am a good moral person and an honest soul. Many of the practioners feel they have the God given right to preech and judge because they go to church or whatever, but they could be miserable people, I don`t go to church or perform rittuals but I`m a good person, who do you think God prefers.

    Serf,
    Your good works are as filthy rags to the most Holy, Yahweh. You can live your whole life in a loving way towards people, but sooner or later you will slip up and sin and fall right in with the rest of us sinners. There is none righteous, no not one.

    What you might be missing when you think of the rituals that the Hebrews perform to this day, they are still using the Old Testament. The New Testament of the Holy Bible is the “good news” that all those rituals no longer have to performed because the price was paid for us by Yeshua/Jesus, Yahweh’s Son!!! We can thumb our noses at the devil, because Yeshua spent 3 days in hell for us to retrieve the keys to life and death, which satan had stolen when he lied to Adam and Eve. _satan is still lying to you Microserf! satan has you wrapped right around his finger with a pretty bow of confusion. I come against you _satan right now and bind that spirit of confusion away from Microserf in the mighty name of Yeshua haMeshiach our messiah, savior and bearer of truth. Amen

    Another thing, satan is the god of the air, he also comes as an angel of light. Where do you usually see UFO’s? Huh? Tell Me? In the air! _satan has a lot of power, but not as much as his creator, he has enough to keep you in lies until you lose your life and have to go up in front of the great judge. At that point God won’t care how good you’ve been, he will ask you why you didn’t accept the free gift that His Son Yeshua died for? The one given to those who will accept it; eternal life!

    This is the day of salvation and should you not accept it, I fear that you will not be given another chance. The time is so short for the Lord Yeshua to return. Look around you and see the vileness that has become of our world. You don’t have to be a church member either, just a believer in Yeshua/Jesus to be saved. Please Microserf, refer back to my first post and accept Him as your savior, tomorrow may be too late!

  18. Terry, maybe next week, right now I’m into more important things….I’m hooking up the trailer to the truck, packing and going camping for the weekend with the wife, kids, our golden retriever and our canoe. Life is getting in the way of my worship right now, my family needs me and I’m giving myself up to them this weekend. Nothing like a weekend on the lake with the family to set things in perspective. Maybe I’ll come back born again, or maybe just exhausted. Have a good weekend people, I appreciate the time you have devoted to my soul. I am serious when I say I appreciate your concern, One day I may just decide that what is going on really is all about God, devil, fallen angels etc… but at this moment, I’m not there. Something is happening, I admit there is a higher power and I continue to search for what it is and what is going on. A topic of interest to me now is global consciousness and how consciousness drives the universe……maybe our global consciousness is a metaphor for god….Anyways time to go camping and live simply for the weekend, I’ll worry about the universe when I get back….cheers!
