And Now a Word from Feisal Abdul-Rauf...



UPDATE: Mark Hemingway finds a few of Feisal's real comments disturbing.
"The Islamic method of waging war is not to kill innocent civilians," he (Abdul-Rauf) told the Herald. "But it was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresden and Hiroshima, neither of which were military targets."

Now that's a charitable view of history. Whenever Muslims kill innocent civilians, it has no relation to Islam. The Muslim conquest of India, the bloodiest conflict in history, in which 80 million people were killed? Not Islam. Sept. 11 attacks? Not Islam. Hamas lobbing thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians? Well, Feisal refuses to go on record condemning Hamas even when asked point blank.

But when America's secular government stopped the atrocities of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, it was really all about Christians killing civilians. America culpa!

According to the story, one of Fox News' biggest shareholders is a Saudi Prince who has contributed to Feisal Abdul Rauf's projects and yet Fox News continues to question the appropriateness of a mosque near Ground Zero and it's supporters "moderation."

I'm in the news business and that suggests editorial independence, not a conspiracy.

It's when the money guys start dictating news coverage that's when you should start to worry.

If Fox changed its coverage or dropped the story altogether that would be very suspect.

Get it? If you don't, I'm sure it's not because you are evil.

The other, I'm seriously starting to wonder about.
