Full audio here – Minute 58:40: "90% of Sharia law is fully compatible — not only compatible — it's
consistent or compatible with American constitutional law and American laws. The
areas of difference are small and minor." Imam Rauf (more supremacist rhetoric here and here) hat tip Kamala
The objective of the stealth jihadists and the Muslim Brotherhood proxies in the US (CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, MAS, MSA, et al) is to impose Islam and sharia on the US, and so it is with Ground Zero Mosque Imam Rauf.
Make no mistake, Rauf did this. Rauf created this maelstrom. Rauf created this divisiveness. Rauf created this fight and he is loving every minute of it. It's all Islam, all the time.

11, 2001, he said, and Muslims grieved alongside their neighbors and
helped in efforts to rebuild.
"I belong to this neighborhood,

day — sometimes more, if I can — and I observe the rituals required
by my faith."
