Mischief in Manhattan: a real moderate Muslim response

Contrary Muslim voices have been noticeably missing from commentary on the Ground Zero mosque initiative. For a religion so large (and ostensibly peaceful, as we’re continually reminded by our enlightened betters), this has been a peculiar omission.

Via Andy McCarthy at The Corner, here is a response to the Cordoba Initiative in the Ottawa Citizen by Raheel Raza and Tarek Fatah, who both sit on the board of the Muslim Canadian Congress.

“New York currently boasts at least 30 mosques so it’s not as if there is pressing need to find space for worshippers. The fact we Muslims know the idea behind the Ground Zero mosque is meant to be a deliberate provocation to thumb our noses at the infidel. The proposal has been made in bad faith and in Islamic parlance, such an act is referred to as “Fitna,” meaning “mischief-making” that is clearly forbidden in the Koran….

As for those teary-eyed, bleeding-heart liberals such as New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and much of the media, who are blind to the Islamist agenda in North America, we understand their goodwill.

Unfortunately for us, their stand is based on ignorance and guilt, and they will never in their lives have to face the tyranny of Islamism that targets, kills and maims Muslims worldwide, and is using liberalism itself to destroy liberal secular democratic societies from within.”
