Rick Perry Supported by Aga Khan

Aga Khan is a very wealthy Shiite who supports Rick Perry.

Rick Perry Aga Khan: Rick Perry and a Muslim Connection? Who and What are Ismaili Muslims?

Karim Aga Khan IV is the “49th Hereditary Imam of the Shia Ismaili Muslims. I believe Ismaili Muslims are tied to Abraham’s oldest son, Ishmael (Shia’s consider Abraham to be the first Muslim). He was born to Hagar after Abraham’s (Abram’s) wife Sara (Sarai) lost faith in God ever giving her a child. Other Shia sects follow a younger brother of Ishmael (but surely not Isaac).

Karim Aga Khan is said to be a direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad. He grew up in Nairobi, Kenya. His first wife, was a model, Sarah “Sally” Frances Croker-Poole. She was born in India to English parents. They divorced after 25 years of marriage. They have three children together, including the oldest, a daughter, Zahra Aga Khan, who is reportedly married to an Anglican Christian man, Mark Boyden. The middle child and son appears not to be married. The youngest son is married to American Kristin J. White. They live in France. All three children were educated in the U.S.

Governor Rick Perry has welcomed Aga Khan to Texas twice – I think both times in conjunction with a new community center built in Houston (the first time in 2002). About Aga Khan’s work, Perry said in April 2008 (read it all at TexasFred’s):

Rare is the religious leader whose vision is so extraordinary that his appeal transcends nationality, ethnicity and faith traditions. His Highness, the Aga Khan, is one such extraordinary leader. If the history of civilization is filled with chapters concerning the strife borne of differences over religion, race, tribe and language, then blessed indeed are the peacemakers who have heard a higher calling of unity, who have recognized our common bonds of humanity, and who have had the courage to say that: “Tolerance, openness and understanding towards other people’s cultures, social structures, values and faiths are essential to the very survival of an independent world”.

The danger here is that Perry quoted the Koran without acknowledging the verses that call for the extinction of all non-Muslims and Muslim domination of the world. Why can we not find one interviewer who will insist on having those questions answered? I readily admit that Christians believe that Christianity should cover the globe, but it is advocated no where that non-Christians will submit or be forced to submit and say they believe in Jesus Christ as a condition of being allowed to stay alive, as it is in Islam.

Perry's cozy relationship with the Aga Khan. I have personally reviewed the curriculum developed as a joint project between Gov. Perry and "his highness," and discovered that it is indeed a shocking example of Islamic propaganda forced upon unsuspecting students attending Texas public schools.
