  1. Roseanne,
    Thank you for the support.
    Apparently the Republicans had declared war on everything Islam.
    ———
    A look at some of the claims and how they compare with the known facts:
    _”The folks who want to build this mosque — who are really radical Islamists who want to triumphally prove that they can build a mosque right next to a place where 3,000 Americans were killed by radical Islamists — those folks don’t have any interest in reaching out to the community. They’re trying to make a case about supremacy.” — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a potential 2012 presidential candidate.
    _Some of the Muslim leaders associated with the mosque “are clearly terrorist sympathizers.” — Kevin Calvey, a Republican running for Congress in Oklahoma.
    _”This radical is a terrible choice to be one of the faces of our country overseas.” — Statement by GOP Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Peter King of New York.
    THE FACTS:
    No one has established a link between the cleric and radicals. New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said: “We’ve identified no law enforcement issues related to the proposed mosque.”
    Ros-Lehtinen and King were referring to the State Department’s plan, predating the mosque debate, to send Rauf on another religious outreach trip to the Middle East as part of his “long-term relationship” with U.S. officials in the Bush and Obama administrations. The State Department said Wednesday it will pay him $3,000 for a trip costing the government $16,000.
    Rauf counts former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright from the Clinton administration as a friend and appeared at events overseas or meetings in Washington with former President George W. Bush’s secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, and Bush adviser Karen Hughes.
    He has denounced the terrorist attacks and suicide bombing as anti-Islamic and has criticized Muslim nationalism. But he’s made provocative statements about America, too, calling it an “accessory” to the 9/11 attacks and attributing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children to the U.S.-led sanctions in the years before the invasion.
    In a July 2005 speech at the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Center in Adelaide, Australia, Rauf said, according to the center’s transcript:
    “We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaida has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims.”
