Victory Mosque: Are We Being Played?

US President Barack Obama’s warm endorsement of the plan to build a mosque by the ruins of the World Trade Center tells Israel – and its enemies – everything we need to know about the president of the United States of America. -Caroline B. Glick, Jerusalem Post
The president was well aware that an overwhelming majority of the American people were strongly opposed to the construction of a monument to Jihad a mere 600 feet from Ground Zero. So what? Most of his policies are strongly opposed by the American people. He was not, however, prepared for the force of the resistance following his statements in support of the Victory Mosque. His coattails just got even shorter.
There has been an enormous outcry, true enough. Factoring out the small manifestly delusional percentage of Americans who are willfully blind to the truth about fundamental Islam; who refuse to familiarize themselves with the Koran and Hadith and are devoted to some addled notion of “diversity at any price” and what you have left are millions of Americans who are horrified by the prospect of a Mega Mosque at the sight of the most devastating attack on American soil in history.
It’s not only Americans. I spoke with a young woman yesterday from another country. A young woman who loves America far more than most liberals. In expressing her anger about the president’s comments, she kept going back to those horrific images of innocent victims throwing themselves out of windows to escape death by incineration.
Until the president spoke in support of the mosque, the issue was emotional but hadn’t escalated into a genuine calamity. Something more primal than moral outrage is at work. When our president openly sided with the ideology that gave us 9/11, our survival instincts kicked in. It’s no longer an abstract argument about values. Barack Obama scared the hell out of us.
The entire Victory Mosque affair has created quite a commotion. But is it for real or are we being played by master manipulators?
At the moment, part of the land designated for the jihad monument is owned by ConEd. The crafty imam-in-chief, as far as we know, doesn’t have the funding to construct his monstrosity. Although Hillary’s State Department is doing what it can to help out by sending Rauf on a fundraising outing at taxpayer expense. What he does have is a working knowledge of how the useful idiots of Moscow on the Hudson operate. He’s only too aware of how easily liberals can be maneuvered in the service of abusing America.
Overt jihad is but one arrow in the quiver. Like the Soviets, radical Muslims have learned to use our values, our justice system and our own Constitution against us. Like liberals, they don’t much like our Constitution—after all, nobody needs that much freedom.
In KGB fashion, proposing such a abhorrent notion and watching our reaction is a good way of gathering intel about the enemy. Rauf and his comrades are learning a lot about America.
But the biggest payoff may well be the propaganda value this entire turbulent mess has yielded. Young, aspiring jihadis can be treated to sound bites edited to prove that the Great Satan is indeed rife with Islam hating bigots. No doubt, Media Matters will be happy to supply the materials.
Recall the flying imams. Could the Victory Mosque be but a grand ruse?
