In previous reports researched by the Walid Shoebat Foundation, it was revealed that Imam Rauf has made statements in the Arabic language – while appearing on Arabic media outlets – that completely contradict his moderate tone when speaking english, exposing him as a direct supporter of terrorism, both financially and verbally.
So who really was speaking on that historic day of June 4th 2009 in Egypt? President Obama or the Imam of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque, Feisal Abdul Rauf?
The Shoebat Foundation has obtained a shocking audio recording of Rauf’s own voice boasting in Arabic that Obamas historic speech in Cairo was provided by the Imam’s work with the Cordova Initiative in what the Imam called The Blue Print which, according to him, was the solution to the Islamic-American divide. Rauf claimed that Chapter 6 of the Imams work engineered by the Cordova Initiative was the construct for the entire speech:
This is an example of the impact of our work in a positive way to be used by the president.
“The blue print,” Rauf elaborated, included everything from U.S. policy to Jewish and Christian relations with Muslims.
For an Imam in New York to be involved in the orchestrating U.S. foreign policy is quite the claim. In the recording dated February 5th, 2010 Rauf boasted that:
We have to look at it [as] how to engineer solutions. At the Cordova Initiative we think of ourselves as an engineering shop. Yes. We have an analytical approach. Our work has been that. IN THE BOOK CHAPTER 6, I WROTE ABOUT THIS BLUE PRINT as to WHAT HAS TO BE DONE BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, what has to be done by the Jewish community, what has to be done by the Christian community, what has to be done by the Muslim community, what has to be done by educators, what has to be done by the media. For example, IN MY BOOK IN THE ARABIC VERSION page 293, what did I write? WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT THE UNITED STATES NEEDS TO DO. IF YOU EXAMINE THIS CHAPTER YOU WILL FIND THAT THE OBAMA SPEECH IN CAIRO WAS ALL TAKEN FROM THIS SECTION [Section 6]. When you do a job that is very complicated. You ask yourself, what have you accomplished. All these problems can be solved but requires the will to solve it. It requires political will, resources and the right focus. The signs of how to go to the moon was known 200 years ago, but the political will and financial will for it happened during 1960-1961. When John Kennedy said that we will send an American to the moon before the end of the 60s, he established the financial resources and the political will.
The story was even collaborated in a written article in an interview with Hani Al-Waziri of Egypt. The clue was revealed while Rauf was answering a question regarding President Barack Obamas speech in which Rauf replied:
the speech was wonderful and wise in his choice of words, the Prime Minister of Malaysia after the speech disclosed to me that it is now easy for any president of a Muslim country to establish good relations with America, and I AM NOT GOING TO HIDE FROM YOU THAT ONE OF THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED IN WRITING THE SPEECH, TRANSFERRED ENTIRE PARTS OF MY BOOK �A NEW VISION FOR MUSLIMS AND THE WEST�, which he referred to U.S. interests being compatible with top interests of the Muslim world.
Rauf did not disclose the name of this speechwriter that included Raufs work in president Obamas historic address to the Muslim world. It is crucial to note that the Arabic version of Feisal Abdul Raufs book was published in Malaysia titled A CALL TO PRAYER, FROM THE WORLD TRADE CENTER RUBBLE: ISLAMIC DAWA (SUMMONS TO ISLAM) IN THE HEART OF AMERICA POST-9/11.”
The interview with Hani Alwaziri dated February 7th, 2010 intended to discuss Raufs plans for what he terms American Style Islam and the Cordova Initiative goals for the U.S. Rauf later stated that his goal was To establish an American style Islam in the United States in which he explains his aspiration of spreading Islam in America by using flexibility and molding Islam to become palatable to the American culture while preserving the integrity of Islamic ideology:
If we look how Islam was spread from Hijaz (Arabia) to Morocco then Turkey, we note that Islam was shaped by the culture and society, hence showing a Muslim version of the architecture and culture and the arts, but with preservation of the framework of belief and worship. We need to provide a GLOBAL ISLAM in accordance with the nature of each society.
Rauf boasted about his towering structure by Ground Zero as:
an icon that will make Muslims proud, not only locally but globally.
His suggestion to Muslims on how to deal with western Christians and Jews was:
deal with them as one courts a pretty girl he wants to date; stop thinking like a typical Muslim. Then you can engage.
He also discussed how he courted Bloomberg and the Jewish Community boards that we have inroads with the Jewish Community Center. It is interesting that Rauf stated in Arabic to Hadielislam, another prominent Muslim think tank that:
people need to use peaceful means to advise the governors and government institutions we also suggest to the governors and political institutions to CONSULT [MUSLIM] RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS AND [MUSLIM] PERSONALITIES IN THE FIELD SO AS TO ASSURE THEIR DECISION MAKING TO REFLECT THE SPIRIT OF SHARIAH.
Walid Shoebat a former terrorist now an advocate for the U.S. and exposes Jihadist political agenda will be available for media interviews.
