Imam behind NYC Islamic community center says it will include prayer spaces for other faiths


www.therepublic.com

A proposed Islamic community center near ground zero will include separate prayer spaces for Muslims, Christians, Jews and people of other faiths

"The wonderful outpouring of support for our right to build this community center from across the social, religious and political spectrum seriously undermines the ability of anti-American radicals to recruit young, impressionable Muslims by falsely claiming that America persecutes Muslims for their faith," he wrote. "These efforts by radicals at di

Wow.. more power to him

This is quite a turn of events, in a good way.
I would just never have expected anything remotely similar to this.

Muslims tend to believe that it's sinful for them to go to other places of worship belonging to other beliefs. So for the center to include many religions is quite a turn of events.
Because of this many muslims may oppose this turn of events.

Now it's going to be both many new yorkers and muslims rallying for the same thing

This just shows how good the so called "elites" of this world are at manipulating the masses in order to bring their agenda to a conclusion. They are using a weakness and this weakness is religious beliefs. These many different beliefs create divisions within the population, and also maintains the minds of the followers in a state of fear towards other faiths.

Faith is a curious but natural phenomenon for most people who feel the need for it. It is part of the soul experience, but we must know that this experience is only temporary. To have faith is a lack of light (intelligence) for the unconscious ego because of an insufficient soul experience, and the lack of knowledge regarding the cosmic laws of life.

"Terrorist NYC Mosque Imam puts plan in place to maximize recruiting of terrorists and convert Americans from other faiths to Radical Islam!!!"

I am just seeing if I can predict far right-wing spin.

Laugh now...but I suspect this OP will see no flags and the story will never see headlines...unless it is spun ugly.

Any peaceful intent or good gesture can be distorted to fear and hate mongering these days.

Well like Ten Bears said in the movie Outlaw Josey Wales...."These thing you say we will have we already have".

Our sure we can count on this guy pointing to this as a reason for young anti american hates not to hate.....when in fact he has never pointed to anything done prior to this in which americans have shown an olive branch toward muslims. Like hundreds of unmolested "community centers" all over the US.

Away with this lier!

Watch this get buried or ignored.

That's not what the Zionists and NeoCons want, they want war with Iran and hatred of all Muslims!

I will admit, I've been opposed to this center being built, but with this news, I change my mind.

From the link:


In the nearly 1,000-word op-ed, he outlined his vision for the center, referring to it as a "shared space" for the community that will include "a multifaith memorial dedicated to victims of the Sept. 11 attacks."

With all the opposition about building an Islamic center at Ground Zero, the Muslims are now throwing out promises of having other faiths pray there! How odd. I see this as an attempt to soften opposition besides, other faiths haven't got anywhere else to pray except for a Mosque?

Wake up people and don't be decieved by this Imam's appeasement. Islam was, is and forever will be a religion of intolerant liars.
