This “Rant” from The Nite Ranter is the most confounding I have ever attempted. So, Please bear with me.  Short and hopefully to the point.

Iman Feisal Rauf in Qatar

Where is the “Crack-Pot” Preacher today 09/21/10 ? As Bill Maher intimated on “Larry King Live”…he, Terry Jones,  got a note from Hisam “Ka-Bloomey” and stole away into the night?  This issue has faded from the media but the Nite Ranter feels that it’s still a relevant and viable question. More importantly, what do you think?

The following Rant was written on 09/o8/10 – (Posted 09/21/10) it’s been stewing!

Tonight, (09/08/10) in an exclusive on CNN – Soledad O’Brien interviewed the State Department icon of the Islamic World, Imam Fiesal Rauf. In that interview Rauf stated that (in so many couched comments) “IF” the USA does not allow the building of the Mosque two blocks from ground zero that there will be hell to pay and that a negative debate and non-agreeing decision will send a message world-wide to Muslim Radicals and thus USA radicals would/will further incense and shape the outcome on behalf of the Islamic radicals.

It appears to The Nite Ranter that the Imam Fiesal Rauf in a very carefully crafted /worded dialog is saying that extremist Muslim groups are using every word in our Constitution ie: separation of church and state, freedom of religion, as a gigantic whip in their arsenal of dialogue to beat up on our people and the words inherent in our founders’ Constitution. It’s a word parsing event against the USA. And, we should understand and acquiesce to their desires…demands?

Tonight, Islamophobia, (As The Nite Ranter posted on 08/26/10) discord, discontent and view points on all fronts are alive well and reaching what could be considered a dangerous crescendo.

Then, the “Crack-Pot” preacher of sorts in a church with fifty (50) people in its fold centered in Gainesville, Florida, will burn 200 copies of the Muslim Koran on Saturday, the ninth Anniversary of 911. General Petraeus has asked this self-proclaimed preacher idiot to stop this action as it will only serve to inflame and undermine the very people we are trying to convince that in a democratic environment various religious persuasions are a freedom granted in America by its democratic Constitution.

The implication is that this preacher (who is getting World-Wide publicity) is inflaming the very people of Iraq & Afghanistan who we are trying to educate to our values and by so doing he will jeopardize the lives of our troops who are working to keep his flock and evangelical church safe from terrorists attacks.


So…here we are…and here’s my question:
As Americans, can we come together and find a workable solution to “Islamophobia?”

What do you think?

    Didn’t you hear? He is moving his church to Tampa where there are more people who feel as he does. Glad I moved out of Tampa!!

    And frankly, who cares what rock he crawls under as long as he stays there 🙂

      Dwood7219…Thank’s for the relocation up-date. Question: Are you sure there exists a rock anywhere with self-respect low enough as to allow “The Crack Pot” to actually crawl under it?
