Excerpt from article:

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, author of A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot’s Fight to Save His Faith and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), told CP in a Tuesday interview, “I don’t even know how to explain it – how a Christian would be helping advance the implementation of the Islamic state under Sharia…he would not be able to make laws.”

Jasser, a Syrian-American who is vice chair of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, attempted to explain Rafiq’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood by referring to Syria. “Many Christians worked for Assad even though they weren’t pro-Baathist,” he said.

“But the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto is directly in conflict with being a Christian,” Jasser argued. The motto is: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!”

“There’s no way a non-Muslim would ever believe that would be the motto of their state,” Jasser said. He speculated that there must be some larger goal Rafiq is trying to accomplish by “compromising himself to work with Islamists.”
