INNOCENT OF MURDER, GUILTY OF FOMENTING HATE?:

Palin Libels Rauf: If you actually listen to the Ground Zero Mosque imam, you might mistake him for a Tea Partier. (Henry Payne, 1/17/11, National Review)

When it comes to national controversies, Sarah Palin has been wronged — but she has also been wrong.

She was libeled last week as an instigator of the Tucson massacre, but she has spread libel herself about the Ground Zero Mosque imam, Feisal Rauf. “Rauf refuses to recognize that Hamas is a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of our ally, Israel,” she wrote on her Facebook page last year in protest against Rauf’s Park 51 Project.

But as Rauf repeated — again — on Frank Beckmann’s conservative radio show last Friday, he strongly opposes Hamas and terrorism.


If we start adding up all the Right's idiocies about Imam Rauf we'll be here awhile.
