More bridge building to islam and only Islam from the new and even more radical imam over at that proposed Ground Zero mosquestrocity on hallowed ground:
Muslims have "more of a right" than Jews to the biblical prophet Moses, declared the imam who has become the new face of the proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero in New York City.
Imam Abdallah Adhami also urged Muslims to "compete" with other religions. Ground zero mosqueoverlay2
"We must be doing it first, we must compete with you to be doing more of that. We want to fast Ashura too, because that's the day God saved Moses; that is certainly a day to be celebrated. We have more right to Moses," stated Adhami in a 2008 lecture obtained and reviewed by WND.
Ashura is an Islamic fast day that commemorates Muslim events, including the Islamic claim that Moses fasted on that day to express gratitude to God for liberating the Israelites from Egypt.
In his lecture, Adhami recounted the Islamic story of the Muslim figure Muhammad arriving in Medina, where he encountered Jews who fasted on Ashura and asked them why they were celebrating the holiday.

The Jewicidals over at the Jewish Forward, who somehow can reconcile the genocidal wishes and holocaust dreams of these Islamic supremacists while vilifying me, are saddened by Rauf's firing:
The Park51 Cordoba spokesman declined to make Adhami available. A phone message left with Gamal went unanswered. Rauf and Khan were said to be traveling and unavailable for comment.
Supporters of the project seemed taken aback by Park51’s sudden announcement. In a January 8 talk at the Society for the Advancement of Judaism, a synagogue on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Khan made no mention of the coming change.
Rauf and Khan had strong relationships with many local Jewish religious leaders. Still, some leading Jewish groups suggested that the center’s funders should be closely scrutinized, and the Anti-Defamation League called for the center to be relocated.
Several New York rabbis involved in interfaith affairs who had been supportive of Rauf and the Park51 project said that they did not know much about Adhami.
“I do not know him. I’ve heard some good things about him so far. We’re trying to figure out what his thoughts are,” said Rabbi Robert Kaplan, who heads the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York’s interfaith initiative. “It was not something we had any heads-up on.”
Indeed, Adhami appears to be something of an unknown quantity. Imam Shamsi Ali, the leader of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York, a large Upper East Side mosque, said that he knew Adhami, but that he wasn’t very familiar with him.
“I think his profile is as a scholar, which is not the same as imam,” said P. Adem Carroll, founder of the Muslim Consultative Network and a member of the Muslim American Civil Liberties Coalition. “I think he’s known as having a positive voice, and humanitarian approach to religious life.”
Carroll said that Adhami has cachet among younger Muslims. The imam is scheduled to appear at a February conference hosted by the Islamic Center at New York University.
The most vocal critics of the Park51 project, led by anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller, have mounted a sustained rhetorical assault on Rauf and Khan. Geller is claiming the shake-up at Park51 as a win for her cause. “We are declaring victory,” she wrote.
Now Geller and her allies are turning their fire against Adhami. They have zeroed in on his ties to Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a nationally prominent African-American Muslim leader from Brooklyn who has made a number of inflammatory remarks over the years.
A 2003 Wall Street Journal profile noted that Wahhaj had praised Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman while testifying as a character witness in the 1995 trial in which the Egyptian-born cleric was convicted of seditious conspiracy for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. And in a 2003 radio interview, Wahhaj bristled when asked whether he thought Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden were behind the September 11 terrorist attacks. “I’m not going to get into that,” he responded. “I’m saying that whoever did it is wrong — absolutely. I’m saying that the majority of people that I speak to are not convinced simply because the American government said this one did that and that one did that. I’m just not convinced.”
The website of an educational organization called Sakeenah, founded and chaired by Adhami, singles out Wahhaj for praise. “Siraj Wahhaj is the voice of the spirit of Islam in America and its pride,” the site says.
