The Imam's Friend

The Ground Zero Imam has a tight association with a guy who is a 9//11 truther.

A founding member of an organization run by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the driving force behind the planned mosque near Ground Zero, claims that the 9/11 attacks were an "inside job" and that Muslims have been made scapegoats, The Post has learned.

Faiz Khan -- who has preached at least twice at the former Burlington Coat Factory building, the site of the proposed mosque -- was for years Rauf's partner in the American Society for the Advancement of Muslims, which is dedicated to promoting a better understanding of Islam.

Why are liberals so inclined to fight for things like the Ground Zero mosque? Bernie Goldberg has a theory.

One of their fundamental delusions is that they have a monopoly on compassion and taking this side of this issue enables them to show how compassionate they are because they are sticking up for ‘oppressed’ – and I am putting that word in gigantic quotation marks – American Muslims. It makes them feel, once again, that they are looking out for the underdogs.

I agree, except that I would say that the political liberals view it as an electoral strategy - they're not delusional at all.
