The strange case of Feisal Abdul Rauf

Reader comment on item: The Temple Mount's Indian counterpart

Hi Dr Pipes

I was reading some background information about Feisal Abdul Rauf when I came across the fact that his family left Egypt in a hurry in 1948

This is the same year when Skeikh Feisal's father left Egypt with his family in a hurry to a then miserable place called al-Kuwait, where Feisal was born, and at last the clan made it to the US

Well, In 1948 al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen (Muslim brotherhood) assassinated the prime minster of Egypt Mahmoud al-Nokrashi and it was a very traumatic event for the people of Egypt. And to this day if you check in Ikhwanweb you will discover that some 60 years later he is described as "3aduw kul al-masriyiin" or the enemy of all Egyptians. El-Nokrashi had no like for Hasan el-Bana (the grand father of Tariq Ramadan) and his fellow thugs aka the Muslim brotherhood,

By no means I'm linking his father or his grand-father to the assassination but it makes you wonder

For more information about him and the financing of this mosque read this great article by Alyssa Lappen
