ST PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 15 /Christian Newswire/ -- Bill Keller, leader of the world's largest interactive Christian website for 11 years, Liveprayer.com, with a daily following of over 2.4 million people worldwide, has thrown down the gauntlet regarding the "ground zero victory mosque" Imam, Feisal Rauf.
Keller was recently quoted as saying, "Imam Feisal Rauf is nothing but a con-man who has ZERO intention or ability to build his 'super mosque/swimming pool/smoothie bar/community center/ interfaith building' or whatever he is calling it today!" Keller continued, "Rauf never had any intentions of building this 'victory mosque,' but has simply used this to advance his own agenda, pocket millions in donations, help his Muslim brothers who own the property make a huge real estate score, and further the advance of Islam in the United States."
Keller said Donald Trump was correct in his assessment that the owners of the property would sell in a second if someone was foolish enough to give them some ridiculous amount of money for the property. However, what Trump doesn't realize is that Imam Rauf will personally end up pocketing millions in donations for his supposed mosque by the time the property is sold.
Keller lamented, "If I was Imam Rauf and I wanted to be a bridge builder, the greatest way to accomplish that would be to build a mosque at the site of Islam's greatest military victory in their 1400 year history. Are you kidding me? If he really was about building bridges, the last place he would want an mosque is anywhere close to ground zero! He is either a very stupid man, or a man who knows exactly what he is doing!"
Keller continued, "If anyone doubts the true intentions of Imam Rauf, just listen to his clear threats he issued when he clearly said that if he doesn't build his mosque by ground zero, the 'radicals' will resort to violence. Give me a break! Islam has been radical since the day Mohammed was visited by the angels of satan and dreamed up this false religion from hell 1400 years ago! All they have ever needed is an excuse, like a cartoon, to riot and kill people!"
Keller, who himself spent 30 months in Federal Prison in the late 80's for insider trading before devoting the last 20 years of his life to serving the Lord, said that Rauf is a documented slumlord who has used US taxpayer dollars to purchase the buildings he refused to take care of, and has no track record or ability to raise the $100 million he needs to build his mosque by ground zero. Keller surmised that he will probably raise a few million in donations before he backs out, blaming everyone else for the failure to complete his project, and walk away with millions of dollars.
Keller has issued an open challenge to Imam Rauf to debate him one-on-one in any media venue, citing the fact that he is not Pastor Jones from Florida with a dozen parishioners pulling a publicity stunt. Keller not only has a following many times greater than Rauf, but has been a bold and visible Christian leader for over a decade, and is actually holding services each Sunday at the New York Marriott by ground zero in prelude to opening his permanent "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero" January 1st.
Keller stated, "Over the years, I have debated many of Imam Rauf's friends at CAIR, a pro-Muslim advocacy group with direct ties to terror organizations, and know what Imam Rauf is all about. He is a skilled politician, plays the media like a fiddle since the mainstream media is afraid to 'offend' someone who calls himself a Muslim leader, and speaks of peace. In reality, he is a devil in disguise whose only goal is to advance Islam in this country! Imam Rauf refuses to renounce archaic Sharia Law or any of his Muslim brothers who perpetrate terror and violence on innocent souls daily around the world. Like all Muslims, he wants to see Israel wiped off the face of the earth. Rauf is on record, blaming the United States for the violent actions of his Muslim brothers with one breath, and in the next, he tries to distance himself from their acts of terror."
Keller said, "All you have to do is look at associates of Rauf like Faiz Khan, a Muslim fanatic who says the acts of murder on 9/11 were an 'inside job.' Rauf is a man on his third marriage who will never go head-to-head with anyone who will stand up to him and ask him tough questions. He will appear with anyone who he can use to further his agenda, but will never appear with someone who is an equal in an ecclesiastical sense like myself, who will force him to talk about the things the mainstream press never question him about."
