Jihadi Omar Suleiman Finds Open Doors All Over Texas

Share 

Omar Suleiman is an Islamic scholar and Imam currently in Irving, Texas. He is and has been the leader of numerous Muslim Brotherhood organizations across America, advocates against liberty, and promotes barbaric sharia (Islamic Law).

Yet, elected officials, pastors, and citizens across Texas welcome this jihadi with open arms.

In May 2019, Suleiman offered the invocation on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in response to an invitation by U.S. Congresswoman Bernice Johnson of Dallas, Texas.

Omar Suleiman’s Muslim Brotherhood Leadership Roles

Suleiman teaches sharia and jihad at the Al Maghrib Institute, a Muslim Brotherhood operation which has produced a large number of jihadis over the years including Tarek Mehanna, Ramy Zam Zam, Daniel Maldonado and Nuradin Abdi among others.

Suleiman also served as the Imam of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Jefferson Muslim Association in New Orleans, Louisiana for six years.

In the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history – U.S. v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Northern District of Texas (Dallas) 2008 – the Department of Justice identified the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) as a Muslim Brotherhood entity which provided money directly to the terrorist group Hamas overseas.

The Jefferson Muslim Association is owned by NAIT, the bank for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

Suleiman also served as a Director for the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), also identified by the U.S. government as a part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s network in the US v HLF trial. ICNA’s training program for youth and adults in the U.S. (page 117) calls for muslims to “wage war” against non-muslims until an Islamic State is established under sharia (Islamic Law). 

The By-Laws of the Muslim Brotherhood state the Brotherhood was created to “fight the tyrants and enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing the Islamic State.”

Suleiman is the Founder and President of the Irving based Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research, whose “Team” is a Who’s Who of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

Suleiman is also the resident Scholar at the Valley Ranch Islamic Center in Irving, Texas, yet another property owned by Muslim Brotherhood’s North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). 

Omar Suleiman’s Overt Jihadi Actions

Omar Suleiman organized a rally and jummah prayers on December 8th, 2017 in front of the White House and tweeted, “Be sure to join us tomorrow in front of the White House for jummah and in protest of Trump’s Jerusalem declaration.”  The rally claimed to challenge the legitimacy of the State of Israel.

Suleiman explains his parents were “displaced Palestinians due to the occupation” and he has proclaimed himself to be a champion “of the Palestinian cause”; called Zionists “enemies of God”, and  references Israel’s military operations as “massacres.”

Omar Suleiman has called for the 3rd Intifada (war) against the Israelis.

On March 5th 2018 Omar Suleiman was arrested on Capitol Hill with senior leaders of Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadi Movement in the U.S. including Linda Sarsour, Dawud Walid, Zahra Billoo and Nihad Awad, the leader of Hamas in the U.S. (CAIR). [The terrorist group Hamas is an inherent part of the Muslim Brotherhood.]

The group was arrested for protesting in support of legislation to protect unauthorized immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.  

On January 19, 2019 Omar Suleiman and 32 others were arrested at the Tijuana/San Diego Border as part of the “Love Knows No Borders” movement in support of immigrants and asylum seekers. The focus of this is to reduce U.S. border security and screening for those illegally entering the United States.

Suleiman was a speaker at the ICNA-MAS convention in Washington D.C. on April 19-21, 2019  (Easter weekend). As stated above, the ICNA-MAS training guide calls muslims to “wage war” against non-muslims to establish an Islamic State under Islamic Law (sharia), which are the stated objectives of Al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

Other speakers at the ICNA-MAS convention were U.S. Hamas leader (CAIR) Nihad Awad and fellow jihadi Siraj Wahhaj. Wahhaj’s children were recently arrested after authorities discovered two separate terrorist training camps were discovered, which taught children to commit acts of terrorism. 

Suleiman will be the keynote speaker at ICNA-MAS Annual Convention December 27-29, 2019.  The three founders of the Muslim American Society (MAS) were senior Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the United States when MAS was established in 1993, including the leaders of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood at the time Ahmed El-Kadi.

In the US v Sabri Benkhala appellate case involving terrorism, the U.S. government officially stated “MAS was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) drives much of the Interfaith Outreach programs in America and propagates a false narrative about Islam, and equates it to Christianity and Judaism.  Suleiman is the Co-Chair of Faith Forward Dallas at Thanks-Giving Square, a “multi-faith alliance.”

 Omar is an experienced islamic scholar and leading the Islamic education in Texas – he understands Sharia.  With this in mind, here are a few of the items directly from authoritative Islamic Law (Sharia): 

“Jihad means to war against non-muslims…jihad is a communal obligation (o9.1)…jihad is personally obligatory (09.2)…” from [Reliance of the Traveller, Islamic Sacred Law] 

“When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.” [Reliance of the Traveller, o8.0] 

“The following are not subject to retaliation (4) a father or mother for killing their offspring or offspring’s offspring.” [Reliance of the Traveller, o1.2] 

“Permissible Lying…it is permissible to lie if the goal is permissible and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory.” [Reliance of the Traveller, r8.2] 

Omar Suliman is extremely active in the Dallas area, and is described as a “rising star.”  He is listed as one of 25 influential American Muslimsand was able to persuade google to alter its algorithm so searches on Islamic words will result in a softer definition, often being objectively false.

One example is the word “taqiyya.”  Taqiyya is a form of permissible lying in Islam. However, as the photo below shows, a google search of “taqiyya” will produce the “definition” the word means, “Prudence, Fear” which is exactly what this word does not mean in Islamic law (sharia).

Every citizen, local official, businessman or woman, pastor, or anyone else in Texas providing a platform to Omar Suleiman is helping America’s enemy move their agenda forward and put Texans in greater danger.

Those who wish to argue that Suleiman wears a suit and is “nice” should consider that Suleiman is overtly sharia-adherent and works to impose sharia on others, making him a “Jihadi” by definition. If being “nice” gets you to surrender to him, he will do it.

We are at war. Texans need to begin acting like it and hold their local and state officials to a higher standard of adherence to their oaths of office.

Understanding the Threat is the only organization in the nation giving citizens, police, and local officials tools to identify jihadis, map out the jihadi networks in your local area, and dismantle these networks.

We need you to help us in this fight and educate your elected officials, school board members, pastors and your entire community!

Join UTT and together we can take the fight to this enemy and put FREEDOM on the offensive where it belongs. Stephanie Ameissal-taqiyyaAllahCAIRCivilization JihadCounterintelligenceHamasHomegrown JihadInterfaith OutreachIslamISNAjihadmosquesMuslim BrotherhoodPermissible LyingshariaUS Muslim Brotherhood,USA v Holy Land FoundationUTTAl Maghrib schoolAssembly of Muslim Jurists of AmericaHouse of RepresentativesJefferson Muslim AssociationLinda SarsourOmar SuleimanRamy Zam ZamSiraj Wahhajtarek mehanna,Yaqeen Institute

The Jihad on the Christian Cross

The Jihad on the Christian Cross

06/07/2019 by Raymond Ibrahim 3 Comments

Cover story photo of the 15th issue of Islamic State magazine, Dabiq, titled “Break the Cross.”

A 37-year-old Muslim migrant in Rome was recently arrested for homicide after he stabbed a Christian man in the throat for wearing a crucifix around his neck.  “Religious hate” is cited as an “aggravating factor” in the crime.

This is hardly the first “religious hate” crime to occur in the context of the cross in Italy.  Among others,

  • A Muslim boy of African origin picked on, insulted, and eventually beat a 12-year-old girl during school because she too was wearing a crucifix
  • A Muslim migrant invaded an old church in Venice and attacked its large, 300-year-old cross, breaking off one of its arms, while shouting, “All that is in a church is false!”
  • After a crucifix was destroyed in close proximity to a populated mosque, the area’s mayor said concerning the identity of the culprit(s): “Before we put a show of unity with Muslims, let’s have them begin by respecting our civilization and our culture.”

The fact is, Islamic hostility to the cross is an unwavering phenomenon—one that crosses continents and centuries; one that is very much indicative of Islam’s innate hostility to Christianity.

For starters, not only is the cross the quintessential symbol of Christianity—for all denominations, including most forms of otherwise iconoclastic Protestantism—but it symbolizes the fundamental disagreement between Christians and Muslims.   As Professor Sidney Griffith explains, “The cross and the icons publicly declared those very points of Christian faith which the Koran, in the Muslim view, explicitly denied: that Christ was the Son of God and that he died on the cross.”  Accordingly, “the Christian practice of venerating the cross … often aroused the disdain of Muslims,” so that from the start of the Muslim conquests of Christian lands there was an ongoing “campaign to erase the public symbols of Christianity, especially the previously ubiquitous sign of the cross.”

This “campaign” traces back to the Muslim prophet Muhammad. He reportedly “had such a repugnance to the form of the cross that he broke everything brought into his house with its figure upon it,” wrote one historian (Sword and Scimitar, p. 10).  Muhammad also claimed that at the end times Jesus (the Muslim ‘Isa) himself would make it a point to “break the cross.”

Modern day Muslim clerics confirm this.  When asked about Islam’s ruling on whether any person—in this case, Christians—is permitted to wear or pray before the cross, Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Tarifi, a Saudi expert on Islamic law, said, “Under no circumstances is a human permitted to wear the cross” nor “is anyone permitted to pray to the cross.”  Why?  “Because the prophet—peace and blessings on him—commanded the breaking of it [the cross].” 

Islamic history is a reflection of these sentiments.  For instance, the aforementioned Sheikh al-Tarifi also explained that if it is too difficult to break the cross—for instance, a large concrete statue—Muslims should at least try to disfigure one of its four arms “so that it no longer resembles a cross.”  Historic and numismatic evidence confirms that, after the Umayyad caliphate seized the Byzantine treasury in the late seventh century, it ordered that one or two arms of the cross on the coins be effaced so that the image no longer resembled a crucifix (Sword and Scimitar, p. 54).

Testimonies from the very earliest invasions into Christian Syria and Egypt of Muslims systematically breaking every crucifix they encountered abound.  According to Anastasius of Sinai, who lived during the seventh century Arab conquests, “the demons name the Saracens [Arabs/Muslims] as their companions.  And it is with reason.  The latter are perhaps even worse than the demons,” for  whereas “the demons are frequently much afraid of the mysteries of Christ,” among which he mentions the cross, “these demons of flesh trample all that under their feet, mock it, set fire to it, destroy it” (Sword and Scimitar, p. 27).

Reminiscent of the recent drawing of a cross in fecal matter on a French church, in 1147 in Portugal, Muslims displayed “with much derision the symbol of the cross. They spat upon it and wiped the feces from their posteriors with it.” Decades earlier in Jerusalem, Muslims “spat on them [crucifixes] and did not even refrain from urinating on them in the sight of all.” Even that supposedly “magnanimous” sultan, Saladin, commanded “whoever saw that the outside of a church was white, to cover it with black dirt,” and ordered “the removal of every cross from atop the dome of every church in the provinces of Egypt” (Sword and Scimitar, pp. 171, 145, 162).

Lest Muslim hostility to the cross still seem aberrant—limited to some obscure saying of Muhammad or “ancient history”—below is a very partial list of examples of how the crucifix continues to throw even “everyday” Muslims into paroxysms:

Egypt: A young Coptic Christian woman named Mary was mauled to death when her cross identified her as a Christian to Muslim Brotherhood rioters.  Similarly, 17-year-old Ayman, a Coptic student, was strangled and beaten to death by his Muslim teacher and fellow students for refusing to obey the teacher’s orders to cover his cross.

Pakistan: When a Muslim man saw Julie Aftab, a Christian woman, wearing a cross around her neck, he attacked her, forced battery acid down her throat, and splashed it on her face—permanently damaging her esophagus, blinding her in one eye, and causing her to lose both eyelids and most of her teeth.

Turkey: A 12-year-old boy in Turkey wearing a silver cross necklace in class was spit on and beaten regularly by Muslim classmates and teachers.

Malaysia: A Christian cemetery was attacked and desecrated in the middle of the night by unknown persons in the Muslim-majority nation.  Several crosses were destroyed, including by the use of “a heavy tool to do the damage.”  Separately, a Muslim mob rioted against a small Protestant church due to the visible cross atop the building of worship.  It was quickly removed.

Maldives: Authorities had to rescue a female Christian teacher after Muslim “parents threatened to tie and drag her off of the island” for “preaching Christianity.”  Her crime was to draw a compass—which was mistakenly taken for a cross—as part of a geography lesson in class. 

As Islam’s presence continues to grow in Europe, it should come as no surprise that attacks on crosses are also on the rise.  Aside from the aforementioned attacks in Italy, the following occurred either in France and Germany, where attacks on churches and crosses have become endemic:

  • A Muslim man committed major acts of vandalism at two churches, including by twisting a massive bronze cross.  (Click for images.)
  • Christian crosses and gravestones in a cemetery were damaged and desecrated by a Muslim (see his handiwork).
  • A Muslim man who checked himself into a hospital for treatment went into a sudden frenzy because there were “too many crosses on the wall.”  He called the nurse a “bitch” and “fascist” and became physically aggressive. 
  • After Muslims were granted their own section at a cemetery, and after being allowed to conduct distinctly Islamic ceremonies, these same Muslims began demanding that Christian symbols and crosses in the cemetery be removed or covered up during Islamic funerals.
  • A German language report from notes that in the Alps and in Bavaria alone, some 200 churches have been attacked and many crosses broken: “The perpetrators are often youthful rioters with a migration background.” 

In light of the above, it should come as no surprise that groups such as the Islamic State also make hostile references to the cross in their communiqués to the West: “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah[.] … [We will cast] fear into the hearts of the cross-worshipers[.]”  The Islamic State even once disseminated a video showing its members smashing crosses in and atop several churches in territories under its sway (since taken down by YouTube); it beheaded and stabbed a man with his own crucifix; and it published pictures of its members destroying Christian crosses and tombstones in cemeteries under its jurisdiction.

Similarly, in post “Arab Spring” Libya, a video of a Muslim mob attacking a commonwealth cemetery near Benghazi appeared on the internet.  As the Muslims kicked down and destroyed headstones with crosses on them, the man videotaping them urged them to “break the cross of the dogs!” while he and others cried “Allahu akbar!”  Toward the end of the video, the mob congregated around the huge Cross of Sacrifice, the cemetery’s cenotaph monument, and started to hammer at it, to more cries of “Allahu akbar.”  Other Christian cemeteries in Libya have suffered similarly.

In Iraq, pictures emerged from a Christian cemetery that was vandalized by the Islamic State.  Broken and scattered crosses appear.  In one picture, the jihadis broke into a coffin, snapped off the head of the withered corpse, and threw the crucifixes surrounding it on the ground.

Such is the history and continuity of Islamic hate for the cross—that symbol which represents the heart of the Christian faith, namely the death and resurrection of Christ, two events Islam vehemently denies. 

The jihad on the cross began with Muhammad, was carried out by early caliphs, and continues to this day by the jihadis of the world, not to mention the occasional “everyday” Muslim.

Note: For more on the long history of jihad on the Christian cross, see author’s recent book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West.

CIA Officer Clair Lopez: Obama is a Muslim Terrorist with Brotherhood Ties to Take Down USA

CIA Officer Clair Lopez: Obama is a Muslim Terrorist with Brotherhood Ties to Take Down USA

By TPTnewsfeed – Oct 2, 2015

Clare Lopez is a former CIA officer, and she is risking her professional career to call out President Barack Obama in the biggest way possible.

Lopez is well respected in the intelligence community and worked in the Reagan White House. After two decades in the field with the CIA, and as an instructor for special forces and intelligence students, Lopez is now with the Center for Security Policy managing the counter-jihad and Shariah programs.

Now, she is claiming Obama is why America has completely “switched sides” during the war on terrorism. America is now supporting the enemy, especially through the Muslim Brotherhood.

Lopez has been unwilling to speak in public, but has confined with a few members of the House of Representatives her serious concerns about Obama’s motivations about foreign policy decisions.

Lopez noted that the war on terrorism has always been about stopping the spread of Shariah Islamic law, until Obama started to make major changes which clearly supported the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadist interests.

She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Shariah,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates.

The transition was easy for Obama, who already hates American values and principles as an ideologically radical…

WHY THE SWITCH?

LOPEZ EXPLAINED, WHEN THE SO-CALLED ARAB SPRING APPEARED IN LATE 2010, “IT WAS TIME TO BRING DOWN THE SECULAR MUSLIM RULERS WHO DID NOT ENFORCE ISLAMIC LAW. AND AMERICA HELPED.”

AND WHY WOULD OBAMA WANT TO DO THAT?

AS SHE TOLD WND EARLIER THIS MONTH, LOPEZ BELIEVED THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD HAS THOROUGHLY INFILTRATED THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND OTHER BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

SHE ALSO CAME TO THE CONCLUSION OBAMA HAD ESSENTIALLY THE SAME GOALS IN THE MIDEAST AS THE LATE OSAMA BIN LADEN: “TO REMOVE AMERICAN POWER AND INFLUENCE, INCLUDING MILITARY FORCES, FROM ISLAMIC LANDS.”

And,

THE FORMER CIA OPERATIVE SAID, “AS ISRAEL FOUGHT ENEMIES ON ALL SIDES TO REMAIN FREE, SECURE AND JEWISH, AMERICA BEGAN TO MOVE AWAY FROM ISRAEL AND TOWARD ITS MUSLIM ENEMIES. AND, AS IRAN MOVED INEXORABLY TOWARD A DELIVERABLE NUCLEAR WEAPONS CAPABILITY, AMERICA HELPED.”

In addition, Lopez claims that the only reason Obama approved of the killing of Osama bin Laden is he simply couldn’t ignore the chance without looking suspicious. The opportunity presented himself, and he “couldn’t delay it any longer.”

FBI discovers homegrown jihadi training camp in Alabama, similar to one in New Mexico

FBI discovers homegrown jihadi training camp in Alabama, similar to one in New Mexico

MAY 12, 2019 10:30 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS6 COMMENTS

The FBI has uncovered a homegrown terror training camp in Alabama. “The property, similar to another compound in New Mexico the group is now linked to where federal prosecutors say Wahhaj and four other suspects were training children to carry out deadly terror attacks on American soil.” The children were said to be living under abusive conditions. In mid March, a federal grand jury in New Mexico indicted the five Muslims. The leader of the group, Siraj Wahhaj, is the “son of Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a former board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations” (CAIR). And while the imam is not responsible for his son’s actions, he himself “is on record urging a violent overthrow of the ‘filthy’ U.S. government. The elder Wahhaj gave an opening prayer at an event at the Democratic National Convention in 2012.”

Despite the mainstream media downplaying of  the existence of of jihadi training camps, such camps are believed to be dispersed in various locations. The Jamad al Fruco group claims to have 22 training camps across the country.

“FBI uncovers homegrown terror training camp in Alabama”, by Kristine Frazao, Fox San Antonio, May 10, 2019:

WASHINGTON (SBG) – At first glance, it looks like an abandoned dump.

But this plot of land in Macon County, Alabama is described in an FBI search warrant as a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” belonging to a small group of terrorists led by Siraj Wahhaj who owned the property up a long dirt road but just a few miles from downtown Tuskegee.

“Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security,” says Tim Fuhrman, Former Special Agent with the FBI field office in Mobile, Alabama.

The property, similar to another compound in New Mexico the group is now linked to where federal prosecutors say Wahhaj and four other suspects were training children to carry out deadly terror attacks on American soil.

FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity told lawmakers on Capitol Hill there are 850 open domestic terrorism investigations, with 40% racially motivated violent extremism.

“The threat of domestic terrorism exists in every region of the United States and affects all walks of life.”…..

Hamas kill baby and pregnant Palestinian, blame Israel

Hamas kill baby and pregnant Palestinian, blame Israel

MAY 6, 2019 11:30 AM BY MARC25 COMMENTS

The Gaza News Agency that shared this Tweet is no friend of Israel, but it does correctly apportion blame for the death of a Palestinian baby and pregnant mother on a Hamas rocket that fell short of killing some Israeli baby and pregnant mother, the intended targets.

But for Hamas this would normally be a win-win.  Dead babies are their currency, currency for the cameras of the world press, they launch rockets from school roofs in Gaza intending for Israel to retaliate, of course they do not provide air raid shelters for their own population.

Research Shows at Least 41,000,000 of American Tax Dollars Spent on Jihadist Organizations

Research Shows at Least 41,000,000 of American Tax Dollars Spent on Jihadist Organizations

MAY 2, 2019 3:52 PM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS12 COMMENTS

This shocking report is a must read below. It outlines how the American people are being used as dhimmis and manipulated in the global jihad war as unwitting “sponsors” of jihad terror, without any say in the matter.

In total….at least $41 million was given to institutions either controlled or under the partial influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-e-Islami… Salafis, Deobandis (a hardline South Asian Sunni sect from which the Taliban was created) and the Iranian regime, among others. Some of the largest amounts involve grants to aid charities.

The latter is how stealth jihadists hide their mission. The hard earned money of American taxpayers should not be going toward the jihadist mission to subvert America,  where its citizens are already deemed to be inferiors by Islamic supremacists.

“$41 Million of Taxpayer-Subsidized Islamism”, by Sam Westrop, The Daily Wire, May 1, 2019:

Research by the Middle East Forum has found that since 2007, federal government agencies have handed over $47 million to 61 Islamic institutions in the forms of 411 various grants and contracts.

On the face of it, this need not be of concern. The government has long relied on contractors and charities from all faiths to implement its programs. Alarmingly, however, radical Islamic movements completely control 36% of the Muslim institutions that received government monies, taking 42% of the total funding. A further 36% of the grantees, which received 44% of the funds, operate under varying degrees of radical influence. A mere 14% of identified government funds given to Muslim organizations were directed toward institutions free of Islamist influence.

In total, if the government’s own data is accurate, at least $41 million was given to institutions either controlled or under the partial influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-e-Islami (a violent South Asian Islamist movement), Salafis, Deobandis (a hardline South Asian Sunni sect from which the Taliban was created) and the Iranian regime, among others.

Some of the largest amounts involve grants to aid charities. Long favored by Islamist movements as a means to spread ideology through welfare, charities also provide extremists with plentiful funding and the occasional accompanying credibility of government partnership.

The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), for instance, received over $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for disaster relief work in 2016 and 2018. ICNA is the U.S. representative body of Jamaat-e-Islami, which was recently banned by the Indian government in the Kashmir region because of its involvement with “extremism and militancy in Jammu and Kashmir and elsewhere.”

ICNA and its subsidiaries openly partner with official Jamaat-e-Islami organizations in Pakistan, such as Al Khidmat Foundation, a funder of the designated terrorist organization Hamas. The Investigative Project on Terrorism has noted that Al Khidmat’s President, Naeem ur-Rehman, is closely involved with the designated Kashmiri jihadist group Hizbul Mujahideen.

In addition, ICNA runs an international aid branch, Helping Hand for Relief and Development, which has openly partnered in Pakistan with Lashkar-e-Taiba, a designated terrorist organization responsible for the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Another Jamaat-e-Islami charity, Muslim Aid, received over $1.5 million from the American taxpayer in 2013 for a “Food for Peace” program. Muslim Aid is based in Britain, but operates a fundraising office in America.

In 2010, three years before the U.S. government handed over taxpayers’ money to the charity, Muslim Aid admitted to funding organizations controlled by the terrorist organization Hamas, including a grant of over $18,000 to the al-Ihsan Charitable Society, designated by the U.S. government as a sponsor of terrorism. In 2013, the same year as the U.S. government grant, a war crimes tribunal sentenced to death in absentia the founder of Muslim Aid, Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, for his part in the mass-murder of teachers and intellectuals by Jamaat-e-Islami killing squads during Bangladesh’s 1971 Liberation War.

Other Islamist strains, meanwhile, also found generous backing. Through the enormous evangelical charity World Vision, $115,000 of taxpayers’ money was handed to a Bin Laden-linked Sudanese charity, the Islamic Relief Agency, a decade after the U.S. Treasury designated it as a terrorist-financing organization. Lawmakers are now investigating the decision to award the grant.

Three organizations named by the United Arab Emirates as terrorist groups were approved for U.S. government funding. Islamic Relief, a global charitable franchise established by supporters and officials of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, received over $1.6 million, despite its extensively-documented links to Hamas and other terrorist organizations.

These enormous sums to aid charities somewhat inflate the total figures. But the hundreds of remaining grants are not insignificant. Branches of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society (MAS) collectively received over $310,000 from the taxpayer. Officials of both organizations (as well as CAIR itself) were named by federal prosecutors as unindicted coconspirators during the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial.

Funds for CAIR and MAS were provided under a diverse range of government initiatives: counter-terrorism security measures, disaster relief. chaplaincy programs and school lunch vouchers. In fact, if large grants to aid charities are disregarded, chaplaincy contracts and schooling subsidies make up a significant proportion of government funding.

The Islamic Institute of Knowledge (IIOK), for example, is a Shiite institution in Dearborn, Michigan, which has received over $851,000 under the National School Lunch Program. IIOK does not hide its ideological links. It was established by Abdel Latif Berry, a disciple of Lebanon’s late Ayatollah Fadlallah, who served as a “spiritual advisor” to the designated terrorist group Hezbollah. In 2009, IIOK held a commemoration for Ayatollah Khomeini…..

Sri Lanka Muslim Majority Town Behind Christian Massacre Had Islamic Violence Dating Back to 2004

Sri Lanka Muslim Majority Town Behind Christian Massacre Had Islamic Violence Dating Back to 2004

APR 28, 2019 2:00 PM BY DANIEL GREENFIELD21 COMMENTS

The familiar media narrative when reporting on serial killers is that, “No one suspected a thing”.

When it comes to Islamic terrorists, it’s also usually, “No one suspected a thing”. But in reality, no one was paying attention.

There was a history of violence. A slow process of building up to a horrific act of terror. But the warning signs were ignored.

The massacre of Christians in Sri Lanka had warning signs going back to 2004.

 When the Wahhabis came, with their austere ideology and abundant coffers, the town of Kattankudy yielded fertile ground…

It was here in Kattankudy’s warren of homes decorated with delicate swirls of Arabic calligraphy that Zaharan Hashim, the man accused of masterminding the Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka, grew up. And it was here that he preached his ideology, calling for the killing of nonbelievers in Islam and even other Muslims…

The Sri Lankan police say that at least two of the suicide bombers involved in the attacks, which killed at least 250 people, were from Kattankudy. The Islamic State claimed responsibility…

It was in the 1980s that Kattankudy, one of the few almost exclusively Muslim towns in Buddhist-majority Sri Lanka, began blossoming into a center of Islamic life. The town was enriched by Saudi money for mosques and madrasas, work-abroad contracts and university scholarships…

There are more than 60 mosques in Kattankudy for a population of 45,000, and most now subscribe to conservative strains of Islam, including Wahhabism. At the New Kattankudy Grand Jumma Mosque, designed as a replica of Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, one of Islam’s holiest sites, construction workers are laying intricate blue mosaics as part of the town’s mosque-building boom…

I’ve snipped out the various claims of Islamic irresponsibility.

The bottom line is that Kattankudy was a majority Muslim town. Its mosques were tilted toward Jihad with the complicity of the Sri Lankan government.

In an appeal to the Muslim community that supported his government, Mahinda Rajapaksa, Sri Lanka’s former president and an unabashed Buddhist nationalist, came to lay the cornerstone of the Kattankudy Grand Jumma Mosque. Saudi diplomats visited, too.

The Saudis and others from the gulf also supported a plan by M.L.A.M. Hizbullah, a Kattankudy native who is now governor of Eastern Province, to open an Islamic-inspired university campus in his hometown. But a dearth of land in its densely populated neighborhoods meant that the university, a vast edifice of domes and mosaics that is one of the biggest buildings in the province, is being built farther north.

Mr. Hizbullah is against reversing regulations that allow Sri Lankan Muslim men to marry children and have multiple wives. Last week, the authorities brought him in for questioning in connection with a radical group founded by Mr. Zaharan.

And there was a history of Islamic violence going back to 2004.

Beginning in 2004, Wahhabi-influenced youth from Kattankudy began attacking Sufis, who practice a mystical form of Islam. Grenades were thrown and swords thrust. Hundreds of Sufis were forced from their homes.

And nothing was done.

When Islamic violence is tolerated, it only escalates.

For almost a generation, Kattankudy had been morphing into a Jihadist stronghold. It’ll take a lot more than a few arrests to turn things around. An embryonic Muslim majority emirate has been set up. The violence is the natural consequence of the theology.
