Re-litigating the Holy Land Foundation Trial?


Yesterday (2/12/20) Brigitte Gabriel via ACT for America sent out an email alerting her readers that terrorist supporting Islamic organizations are beginning public and legal pressure to remove their Islamic terrorist connections associated with the Holy Land Foundation trial that ended with several guilty verdicts for supporting Hamas Islamic terrorism.

 

The ACT for America website picked up a 2/7/20 Center for Security Policy (CSP) story on the attempt to erase the unindicted co-conspirator list in America.

Hamas Linked “Bridge Initiative” wants to re-litigate the Holy Land Foundation Trial

 

The ultimate goal of the Bridge Initiative is to remove Hamas/CAIR and other radical Islamic organizations from the designated terrorist list. The Bin Talal Center claims that the terrorist designation raises issues about “due process, equal protection, judicial deference, the chilling of free speech…”

 

This is how the EU weasels out of designating Hezbollah as a terrorist entity!

 

I’ve detailed where projects like the Bridge Initiative get their funding extensively in my book, “Because They Hate.” In 2006 alone, Georgetown University received 28.1 million US dollars from Saudi Arabia to fund programs like their Bridge Initiative.

 

In 2009, at the request of the White House, Georgetown University covered all religious symbols during an address given by Obama — Georgetown is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher education in the United States.

Hamas-linked “Bridge Initiative” wants to re-litigate Holy Land Foundation trial

The Bridge Initiative, a project of the Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim Christian Understanding, continues to embarrass its host, Georgetown University, this time by publishing a “factsheet” in defense of the convicted Hamas fundraising organization known as the Holy Land Foundation.

 

The sheet is short on facts, and long on emotional appeal. It distorts basic facts about the Holy Land Foundation case, in which the nation’s largest Islamic charity and five of its employees were convicted on 104 felony counts, including providing material support for the terrorist organization Hamas.

 

While the Bridge Initiative wants to relitigate the HLF case, wholly endorsing arguments made by the defense that were soundly rejected by judge and jury, ultimately what it seeks to do in their factsheet is argue that Hamas should not be designated as a terrorist organization at all. They likewise condemn U.S. Treasury Terrorism designation efforts in general, despite these efforts being a mainstay of the effort to combat terrorism since 9/11.

 

The Jewish Journal describes the project’s factsheet noting,

 

“The fact sheet says that Hamas ‘was founded in Palestine in 1987 as a political and social organization, with an armed wing aimed at resisting the Israeli occupation of Palestine.’ It acknowledges that the United States designated Hamas a terror organization in 1997, but then states that designating Hamas as a terror group “has been criticized by legal scholars as being politicized by the State Department, and as raising issues concerning due process, equal protection, judicial deference, the chilling of free speech, and having ‘disparate impact on the Arab Muslim community.’”

 

The defenders of Hamas have long relied on the false distinction that the group has an “armed wing” which engages in violence, claiming the majority of the group merely performs otherwise legal work in the social and political spheres.  Ironically, Hamas’ own founder rejected the distinction between armed and unarmed wings, and the organization is tightly integrated. Terrorist activities take place under the direction of the group’s political leadership, as Matt Levitt, Author of “Hamas: Politics, Charity and Terrorism in Service of Jihad” has ably documented.

 

It’s no surprise that Bridge Initiative would be playing the role of Hamas apologist, given that its founder, John Esposito, has a history with the very Hamas network of which the Holy Land Foundation was the prominent member. Esposito served as a member of the advisory editorial board for the journal of the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR). UASR, which the federal government described as a Hamas “think tank”, was founded by Mousa Abu Marzook, currently deputy chairman of Hamas’ political bureau. UASR’s executive director and the editor of the journal of which Esposito was an advisor, Ahmad Yousef, who went on to serve as a Hamas spokesman.

 

Esposito’s Bridge Initiative is not alone among groups with questionable ties seeking to memory-hole the reality of the Holy Land Foundation Trial. The Charity and Security Network (CSN), a project of the Center for Effective Government (formerly OMB Watch), has been a leader in this regard. CSN also attempts to paint the Holy Land Foundation case as an overly broad smear of Muslim charities. As Sam Westrop of Middle East Forum has ably demonstrated, however, CSN itself receives funding and support from several charities with known links to terror finance.

 

First designated for its terror ties in 2001, and convicted in 2008, it seems that HLF’s partisans believe the time is right to proclaim these Hamas financiers as champions of virtue wrongly convicted. They are no doubt counting on the fact that few in 2020 remember the long trial or the copious documentary and surveillance evidence the government produced in the case. They likewise are convinced of their ability to falsely slander those experts who have studied the case as Islamophobes and bigots.

 

But it isn’t going to work.

Georgetown U – Islamized Catholic University


John R. Houk

© March 31, 2017

 

Georgetown University is a premier academic institution in America, yet the university has unconscionable links to the Radical Islam that hates American culture and Liberty.

 

USNews.com ranks Georgetown University #20 nationally tied with UC Berkley. This makes Georgetown one of America’s elite colleges. Georgetown was founded as a Jesuit-Catholic college in 1789 around the time of the U.S. Constitution became the centerpiece of American government and George Washington became the first President of the United States.

 

Georgetown University, a private university in Washington DC, is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit higher education institution in the US.

 

Its alumni include two former US presidents: Bill Clinton and Lyndon Johnson; as well as several other heads of state, including King Felipe VI of Spain.

 

Having been founded in 1789 by John Carroll, the US’ first bishop and archbishop, on a hilltop overlooking the Potomac River, Georgetown awarded its first bachelor’s degrees in 1817.

 

The American Civil War nearly forced the closure of the university, with the student body dropping from 313 to 17 between 1859 and 1861, but it was in the aftermath of the conflict that Georgetown became the institution that is known today.

 

Patrick Healy, the university’s president between 1873 and 1882 and the first African American to earn a PhD, reshaped the institution’s curriculum to place a focus on history and the natural sciences, and started the construction of Healy Hall, the flagship Flemish Romanesque building at the heart of the campus.

 

Nowadays the university is divided into nine undergraduate and graduate schools, including Georgetown College, which offers a liberal arts programme, and the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, which has educated heads of state and politicians from around the world.

 

With more than 7,000 undergraduate and about 10,000 postgraduate students, about 11 per cent of Georgetown’s students are from overseas, being drawn from about 130 countries.

 

Although it has always been independent of the Catholic Church, Georgetown’s Jesuit heritage continues to be influential, with education at the university emphasising service to others, particularly the vulnerable and disadvantaged.

 

Georgetown also runs a school of foreign service in Doha, Qatar, and offers study abroad opportunities at villas around the Mediterranean.

 

Alumni and sports teams of Georgetown are known as Hoyas. Prominent Hoyas include US defence secretary Robert Gates and his predecessor Donald Rumsfeld; José Manuel Barroso, the former president of the European Commission; and King Abdullah II of Jordan. Actor Bradley Cooper is another Georgetown alumnus. (Georgetown University: More about Georgetown University; TimesHighterEducation.com; 2017)

 

This description of Georgetown is a glowing picture, right? Georgetown has one of the top Islamic apologists (John Esposito: HERE & HERE) that defends Muslim terrorists that hates Israel and has a University adjunct in Doha, Qatar. Qatar is a notorious supporter of Radical Islam and Islamic terrorists in the Middle Eastern region. I suspect the Jesuit founder of Georgetown is rolling over in his grave over Islamic infiltration into his Catholic university.

 

ACT for America has news on convicted Islamic terrorist Sami al-Arian having a teaching moment at Georgetown University’s Qatar location.

Georgetown University and Radical Islamists: It’s a Family Affair

 

By ACT Staff

March 29, 2017

ACT for America

 

Georgetown University’s Qatar campus is set to host Sami Al-Arian for a lecture tonight in Doha. According to a news release from the school’s Middle Eastern Studies Student Association, Al-Arian is a “civil rights activist” who hopes to challenge students to “make it a better, and more equitable and peaceful world.”

Those are charitable descriptions for Al-Arian, a documented member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Majlis Shura, or board of directors. According to the Islamic Jihad’s bylaws, which law enforcement agents found during searches of Al-Arian’s home and offices, there can be “No Peace without Islam.” The group’s objective is to create “a state of terror, instability and panic in the souls of Zionists and especially the groups of settlers, and force them to leave their houses.”

It’s an agenda Al-Arian took to heart. Following a double suicide bombing in 1995 that killed 19 Israelis, Al-Arian solicited money from a Kuwaiti legislator. “The latest operation, carried out by the two mujahideen who were martyred for the sake of God, is the best guide and witness to what they believing few can do in the face of Arab and Islamic collapse at the heels of the Zionist enemy…” he wrote.

“I call upon you to try to extend true support of the jihad effort in Palestine so that operations such as these can continue, so that the people do not lose faith in Islam and its representatives…” he wrote. Four years earlier, he spoke at a fundraiser in Cleveland, introduced as the head of the “active arm of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine.”

Why, then, is a Jesuit university, albeit at a campus in Qatar, hosting a leader of a designated terrorist group’s “active arm”?

There’s a family bond between Georgetown University and the Al-Arians. Son Abdullah is an assistant professor at Georgetown’s Qatar campus, teaching history in its School of Foreign Service. He earned his Ph.D. at Georgetown, writing his dissertation about the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood during the 1970s, a time his father acknowledges being part of the global Islamist movement.

Jonathan Brown, Al-Arian’s son-in-law, also works at Georgetown, as the [Saudi] Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Chair of Islamic Civilization. Brown recently drew criticism for a lecture in which he argued that slavery isn’t inherently “morally evil” if the slave is treated well. He also minimized sexual consent as a recent social more, arguing no one is really free enough to grant consent anyway.

Property records show Brown and his wife Laila Al-Arian bought a modest house just outside Tampa in 2015. Brown also owns a $1.1 million house in Mclean, Va.

Brown’s boss, Georgetown University Professor John Esposito, has been a staunch Al-Arian defender. Al-Arian is “an extraordinarily bright, articulate scholar and intellectual-activist, a man of conscience with a strong commitment to peace and social justice,” Esposito wrote in a letter to a federal judge.

Brown’s slavery and sexual consent lecture was hosted by the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) in Herndon, Va. The IIIT was a prime financial supporter of a think tank Al-Arian founded in Tampa called the World and Islam Studies Enterprise (WISE). It provided cover for at least three other members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Shura Council, including his brother-in-law Mazen Al-Najjar, an academic named Basheer Nafi and Ramadan Abdullah Shallah – the Islamic Jihad’s secretary general since late 1995.

Federal prosecutors wanted Al-Arian to tell a grand jury what he knew about the IIIT’s financial support for terrorists. He refused. Al-Arian was charged with criminal contempt after maintaining that stance even after a judge granted him immunity for his truthful testimony.

The case never went to trial. Al-Arian was deported to Turkey in 2015, pursuant to terms in his 2006 guilty plea connected to his Palestinian Islamic Jihad support. He now works as “director of the Center for Regional Politics at Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University,” the Georgetown Middle East students group’s news release said.

Al-Arian is a computer scientist.

Sabahattin Zaim opened in 2010 and claims to have about 1,100 undergraduate students.

While the Georgetown University program is organized by a student group, promotional material lists Mehran Kamrava as moderator. Kamrava directs the Georgetown School of Foreign Service’s Center for International and Regional Studies.

 
His presence adds the university’s imprimatur to the Al-Arian event. In addition, the School of Foreign Service posted the news release promoting Al-Arian’s lecture.

Qatar has supported Hamas, the Islamic Jihad’s rival Palestinian terrorist group, providing money and refuge for Hamas leaders. In that light, Al-Arian’s invitation doesn’t seem out of place. But it is still an event hosted by a Georgetown University campus, moderated by one of its prominent faculty.

While Al-Arian has tried to deny his Islamic Jihad activities, or at least minimize them, his work to advance the group’s bloody ambitions is undeniable. He self-identified as the Shura Council’s secretary. In his plea agreement, he admits lying about Shallah’s prominent role in the Islamic Jihad.

During his 1991 remarks in Cleveland after his “active arm” introduction, Al-Arian urged donations for jihad. “Your brothers in Palestine are struggling with their beings,” he said, “so let us struggle here with our money.”

“This is the way of giving,” he said earlier. “This is the way of struggle. This is the way of battle. This is the way of jihad. This is the way of martyrdom. Thus is the way of blood, because this is the path to heaven.”

The student association’s news release failed to mention this background as a convicted felon, describing the former University of South Florida professor as a “civil rights advocate.” It fails to mention Al-Arian’s guilty plea, and whitewashes his resulting deportation to Turkey by saying “Al-Arian relocated.”

The federal judge who saw all the evidence against Al-Arian, who watched him lie about his true identity and violent ambitions, called him a “master manipulator.” Old habits die hard, apparently. The question in this case is whether Georgetown and its student groups are being duped or are witting accomplices in whitewashing a terrorist into a “human rights advocate.”

Pastor Bob Roberts Embraces Radical Islam for his Church


Bob Roberts - Texas Pastor supporting Radical Islam 2

John R. Houk

© June 13, 2013

 

Ever heard of Pastor Bob Roberts of Northwood Church of Keller, TX? Well I had not because I avoid reading circles of people that I am certain I will have a low opinion. Pastor Roberts hangs around a group of Evangelical leaders that tend to water down the Christian faith particularly the orthodox (for clarity – I am not writing of Eastern Orthodoxy) teachings of Biblical theology in which all divisions within Christianity have long agreed upon up until at least the 20th century.

 

So what do I consider Christian orthodoxy acceptable to all Christians?

 

Jesus Christ was born in the flesh from the Virgin Mary and the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God before His Virgin Birth as a man. So Jesus is both God and the Son of God. Jesus was crucified and died on the Cross to pay the debt of Adam’s sin. The Resurrection of Jesus in a flesh body Redeemed all of humanity that believe Jesus is the Son of God arisen in the flesh now glorified sitting at the Right Hand of the Father with the Promise of returning to Redeem the rest of Earth from the curse of Adam’s Fall. Now there is a lot more that I believe in the Ministry and Redemptive act of Jesus, but this is where Christians begin to diverge in their theology.

 

I can safely say that Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Believers and Protestants agree on the essentials of the articles of Faith which I just wrote. Even the Coptic Church – the largest Christian Church stuck under Islamic Supremacism – agrees with the above paragraph with a minor disagreement of the nature of Christ (a disagreement that was considered huge between Eastern [Greek] Orthodox and Copts in the days that Muslims conquered Egypt).

 

Pastor Bob Roberts has misapplied the Love of Christ to mean to fellowship with Muslims as brothers. We can agree that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to Redeem all humanity. We can all agree that Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself and the New Testament Epistles elaborate on this Golden Rule by calling Christians to honor all men (21st century political correctness: all men and women or all people). This would include people who are not Christians. Pastor Roberts takes this “honor all men” to the level of let’s fellowship as brothers with those that hate Christians and Jews; viz. Muslims.

 

Muslims that strive to live a harmonious life under their Allah might act on the thoughts that Islam is peace and that there is no compulsion of religion in Islam toward non-Muslims; however that is very divergent from their holy writings in the Quran and Hadith. In the Quran the Muslim doctrine of Abrogation allows Muslims to focus on the Quranic Suras that tell the Muslims to enslave non-Muslims under a life 2nd class domination under Islamic Supremacism (dhimmitude) or kill Christians and Jews for not submitting or converting.

 

You see the Quran has NO Golden Rule equivalent to the Biblical Golden Rule. The Quran is conquer, enslave or kill. The Bible is share the Good News of Jesus Christ so people can choose willingly to be Redeemed now or face damnation in the NEXT Life. The difference between Quran commands and Biblical New Testament commands are HUGE.

 

Muslims are either lying or ignorant of their own Quranic theology if they tell you this a non-Muslim deception. In Islamic theology the concept of duality actually allows for a Muslim to follow the peace and love Suras above the violent Suras that abrogate peace and love. The Islamic theology of duality: abrogated and non-abrogated Suras are both valid depending on the circumstance chosen by an Islamic authority such as a Mullah or Cleric or Islamic leader rather secular or theological. In Islam secular and theology are merged as one authority in advancing Jihad.

 

Muslims tell Westerners of the so-called Greater Jihad which is that internal struggle to live submitted to Allah. The historical reality is the so-called Lesser Jihad – Conversion by Conquest and humiliation – is the primary fashion that Islam spread throughout the Middle East, North Africa, India and parts of Europe. AND the so-called Lesser Jihad is what the modern purist Muslims desire to use to establish a modern Caliphate. These purist Muslims are identified to we Westerners as Radical Islam or Islamism today. The major concern should be for Westerners and Americans in particular is that Radical Islam can be identified as the Muslim Brotherhood network spread from Egypt and the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia. There are other regions of the world that export their Radical Islam toward the West but they don’t quite have financial-political clout of the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.

 

Pastor Bob Roberts is not extending a hand of Christian friendship to Muslims that Multiculturalists identify as Moderate Islam that place more stock in the Islam is Peace portions of the Quran, rather Pastor Roberts are reaching out to Radical Islamic elements in the USA with direct linkage to the Muslim Brotherhood. If an American Muslim organization directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood network or Saudi Wahhabi money they desire the destruction of American Constitutional law in which Religious Freedom and Free Speech is paramount. These Radical Muslim groups are also extremely anti-Semitic to the point that when they think no one is looking the Jew-Hatred oozes out calling for Jewish destruction.

 

Pastor Roberts has Church meeting giving Islam a Muslim moment in his Church which include speakers from the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA). ISNA seems to be networked by both the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.

 

Pastor Roberts is often heard using Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Yusuf al-Qaradawi in his build bridges with Islam thoughts:

 

“…one of the “key Islamic leaders” Roberts invokes is … Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a man who has praised Hitler, supports female genital mutilation, supported the fatwa calling for the assassination of writer Salman Rushdie and to top it all off, has called for a second Holocaust against the Jewish people!” (Snapshots a CAMERA blog; September 20, 2012 12:35 PM)

 

Pastor Roberts glories in knowing Professor John Esposito a man reputed as an expert in all thing Islam. Esposito refuses to condemn Radical Islam and blames Islamic terrorism as a pure response to American imperialistic colonialism. Esposito’s portrayal of Islam is idiotic denial of history and fans the hypocrisy that Islam is peace even while violence is globally widespread perpetrated by Muslims.

 

Esposito subscribes to the Edward Said school of thought, which holds that Middle Eastern attitudes toward Israel can never be understood from an “American colonialist perspective.” In other words, they should be viewed from the point of view of Israel’s alleged role as a base of American imperialism. Ignoring Hamas‘ program of creating an Islamic radical state to replace Israel – a genocidal agenda – Esposito has characterized the Palestinian terror group as a community-focused organization that, in addition to its violence, does a considerable amount of societal good via such productive activities as “honey [production], cheese-making, and home-based clothing manufacture.” He has likened Yasser Arafat’s calls for jihad to social initiatives for the launching of a “literacy campaign” or a “fight against AIDS.” He has called former professor Sami al-Arian, a terrorism-supporter with strong links to Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a “consummate professional.” (From John Esposito; Determine The Networks)

 

Pastor Roberts has spent time with Saudi Arabia’s former head of Intelligence Prince Turki-Al-Faisal. Pastor Roberts says this about the Saudi Prince:

 

He’s truly an exceptional man and a world leader par excellent!  I wish we had 1,000 men like him spread out across the world – this world would be a much better place.

 

As head of Saudi Arabia’s Intelligence Prince Turki al-Faisal had an amenable relationship with Osama bin Laden and Mohammed Omar the one-eyed Mullah that ruled Taliban controlled Afghanistan. This relationship was not hostile. Later the Prince had become the Saudi Ambassador to the USA. The enigma with that is he promotes Wahhabism on one side but typically of many Saudi Royal Family members also displays a Western veneer with his public actions in the West.

 

The Balfour Post ran a story mentioning the Radical Muslims I just mentioned and a few others. Read an excerpt below:

 

Pastor Bob Roberts. Jr. is known for his efforts to build-bridges with Muslims. He spoke at the “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference put together by Palestinian Christians at Bethlehem Bible College. So did Florida Pastor Joel C. Hunter, who has been negative attention for his association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. Hunter is also critical of “Christian Zionists.”

 

An article posted on Hunter’s website reports how the “Christ at the Checkpoint” audience, including students from Wheaton and Eastern Universities, “were moved by the testimony of Palestinian men and women who shared the pain and suffering they experience on a daily basis caused primarily by the continuing occupation.”

Pastor Roberts reacted to the anti-Islam Innocence of Muslims video by suggesting that governments crack down on its distribution. He said, “There is a ‘clear and present’ danger the U.S. courts have ruled in regard to freedom of speech—I think that has to extend globally.”

In January, NorthWood Church hosted Azhar Azeez, Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terrorism-financing trial. Federal prosecutors labeled ISNA a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, a fact confirmed by the Brotherhood’s own secret documents.

In November, his church’s Global Faith Forum will bring the spotlight to his interfaith efforts and those involved in them. Event speakers include Rep. Kay Graner (R-TX), former South Carolina Governor David Beasley and Christianity Today editor Mark Galli, but they aren’t the main attractions.

The conference website’s home page proudly advertises Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. from 2005 to 2007, as a main speaker. Before that, he was the Saudi foreign intelligence chief from 1977 to 2001, making him a top figure in Saudi Arabia’s proliferation of Wahhabism around the world for over 20 years. He represented a Sharia-based government that persecutes Christians.

Faisal Bin Muammar was an advisor at the Saudi Royal Court and Secretary-General of the Riyadh-based King Abdul Aziz Center for National Dialogue.

Safi Kaskas is a co-founder of East West University in Chicago and a “strategy consultant for a number of business organizations in the USA and Saudi Arabia.” He is a member of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists. A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo identifies AMSS as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo says its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” The AMSS is also closely linked to the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

Another main speaker is Professor John Esposito, one of the top non-Muslim supporters of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network. He is a frequent guest speaker at their events and was a witness for the defense in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation.

The aforementioned Azhar Azeez is again speaking. He is the Vice President of ISNA and has been on its Executive Council since 2002. He is also the senior National Director of Islamic Relief USA, a charity linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Wadah Khanfar was the director-general of Al-Jazeera from 2006 to 2011. Al-Jazeera’s extremism is well-documented. The Arabic station even gives Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi a weekly show.

“Pseudo-Christian” Pastor From Texas Mega-Church Partners With the Muslim Brotherhood

 

Posted by Sharia Unveiled

By Ralph Mauro

Posted June 11, 2013

 

On June 9, the Clarion Project reported that the U.S. envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will be speaking at an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) regional conference, sharing the stage with at least three Islamists. But there are some other featured guests: ISNA’s interfaith allies, including Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church in Texas.

 

ISNA is identified in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of its fronts. The U.S. government also listed ISNA as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity when it designated the group an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. The so-called “charity” was another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that, in the words of Judge Jorge Solis, “operated from within ISNA.” ISNA denies it has “ever been subject to the control of…the Muslim Brotherhood.”

 

ISNA’s South Central Conference will be held in Dallas on June 15. The event will feature an interfaith panel that includes its Community Outreach Director, Mohamed Elsanousi, who attended a Muslim Brotherhood-linked conference in Mauritania last year.

 

Other participants include Rabbi Joshua S. Taub of Temple Emanuel and Cristina Warner, the Campaign Director of the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Campaign, an ISNA-allied interfaith coalition. ISNA is so proud of Shoulder-to-Shoulder that its success was a top talking point of senior officials when they met with the Islamist Prime Minister of Turkey.

 

The most high-profile interfaith speaker at the ISNA regional conference is Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church, a critic of “Christian Zionists.” As reported last month, Pastor Roberts’ NorthWood Church is holding its own Islamist-stocked interfaith event called the Global Faith Forum in November. Pastor Roberts’ speakers include ISNA officials, former senior Saudi officials and a former director-general of Al-Jazeera.

 

The Clarion Project’s original article on the event provides insight into some of the fellow speakers of Pastor Roberts, Rabbi Taub and Cristina Warner.

 

The keynote speaker is Dr. Jamal Badawi, who will also be on panels about Sharia and having a healthy family. His record includes praise for Hamas, “combative jihad,” and justifying the physical disciplining of wives (or, as he says, “a gentle tap on the body” for disobedience). His name also appears in a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood phonebook from 1992 and he hangs out with Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi. The radicalism of his resume is strong enough to prompt counter-terrorism expert Patrick Poole to ask, “Why is Jamal Badawi Still Allowed into the United States?”

 

ISNA official Yusuf Ziya Kavakci will be handling the opening remarks, leading a prayer and joining Badawi for the panel on Sharia. He used to lead a mosque that an article in 1999 said “is considered to be one of the most active centers of Hamas activity in the United States[.]” The mosque was linked to the Holy Land Foundation, the aforementioned U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that was housed by ISNA and shut down for financing Hamas.

 

The notorious Imam Siraj Wahhaj is listed as an invited speaker at the event. His radicalism is unquestionable. He has preached that “America is the most wicked government on the face of the planet Earth.” America, he told his audience, is a “garbage can” that he prays “crumbles.” Unlike some Islamists, he doesn’t hide his desire for Sharia Law in America.

 

“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us,” he said.

 

The book Muslim Mafia quotes Wahhaj even condoning violence. “We don’t need to arm the people with 9mms and Uzis. You need to arm them with righteousness first. And once you arm them with righteousness first, then you can arm them,” he said, as well as “I will never tell people, ‘Don’t be violent.’ That’s not the Islamic way.”

 

Wahhaj’s rhetoric lines right up with the private words of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The 1991 memorandum that identified ISNA as one of its fronts said its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”

 

Page 21 of the document states: “[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’” That is the context that ISNA’s interfaith alliances need to be put in.

 

After my last article on NorthWood Church was published, a reader emailed me to say that he posted it to the Facebook page of the church and the personal page of Pastor Roberts. It didn’t take long for it to be deleted. Ignorance is no longer an excuse.

TRUTH!  

                                         

…in a word, that is what sharia unveiled is about.

 

sharia unveiled is committed to seeking and sharing the truth.  In all things, there is only one truth.  There is no “middle ground” in truth.  There is no “compromise” in truth and there is no “tolerance” in truth.  There is no “leuke warm” in truth.  There are no “grey areas” in truth.  Truth is black and white.  Wrong or Right.  There is truth and everything else is just a lie.

 

We live in this world although we are not of it.

 

We live in a world of darkness, lies and deception.  We live in a world that protects, defends and rewards those who lie.  Why?  Primarily due to the fact that faith is being forced out of the world and evil is being invited in.  When we force God out essentially, we are creating a vacuum in society.  We are creating a void of empty space and the natural tendency is for that space to be filled.  The door has been left open and evil has been invited in.  Evil comes in many forms although rarely does it present itself as evil.  In most cases, it hides itself beneath a cloak of deception and a pretty name.  Sometimes evil even hides beneath the facade of “Peace and Love.”

 

We are dedicated to human rights.

 

sharia unveiled is absolutely and unequivocally devoted to the protection and defense of human rights.  There are many areas of human rights violations in the world today.  Unfortunately, there are too many for any one person or group to be able to focus on them all.  We pledge to focus on Read the Rest
