Imam Rauf and new martyrs recruitment threat: A Limerick.

Imam Abdul Rauf: On September eleven

The nineteen brave martyrs died, went straight to heaven.

We need more ground zeros

To honor our heroes.

 And pray for replacements, new martyrs times seven.

To be fair, he did not actually say these things. It was my perception of the glance in his eyes when he was asked the question: Why not move the Mosque to a less controversial place? This is the real quote: “If we move from that location, the story will be the radicals have taken over the discourse,” Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien on “Larry King Live” Sep 2010. “The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack.”
