Whatever one feels about the Ground Zero mosque, I think we can all agree the State Dept. shouldn’t be sponsoring the travels of the mosque’s Imam:
US State Dept Sends Mosque Imam to Mideast
State Department officials on Monday confirmed Feisal Abdul Rauf, the Imam of the so-called Ground Zero Mosque, will soon be going on a trip of the Middle East and the U.S. government will be picking up the tab.
The planned construction of a mosque near Ground Zero in New York City has set off a contentious national debate over religious freedom in the U.S., drawing impassioned opposition from some families of 9/11 victims.
This fits in with an idea I have long considered – that beside Islam itself, the greatest promoter of Islamic religion in the US and the world is the secular Left.
