Radical Imam Behind Ground Zero Victory Mosque Says He's Received Death Threats
The wife of the imam behind the Ground Zero Victory Mosque told ABC they have received death threats…
But they’re going ahead with their mosque anyway.
On the same broadcast Muslim leader Anjem Choudary, a former British solicitors and Islamic cleric, told an audience this week that eventually you’ll see global Islamic rule including here in the United States.
The AP reported;
The wife of an imam planning an Islamic community center and mosque near ground zero said Sunday that she and her husband have received death threats.
“For the record, my life is under threat,” Daisy Khan said during a town hall debate on Islam broadcast on ABC’s “This Week” news program.
Khan, who’s married to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, said her husband’s life also is under threat but, “We do not walk around with bodyguards because we love this country.”
Chief police spokesman Paul Browne confirmed that Khan had told authorities about the telephone threats she’d received.
“There were telephone threats made,” Browne said, adding the police department was investigating.
Rauf would be a spiritual leader of a 16-story Islamic center and mosque planned for lower Manhattan two blocks north of where Islamic extremists destroyed the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, and killed nearly 2,800 people.
