Local Residents Challenge U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Mosques

The Islamic Society of Mobile in Alabama

The controversies in Oklahoma and Alabama are just a glimpse of what the North American Islamic Trust is up to nationwide.

By Ryan Mauro:

Local residents are challenging proposals to expand Muslim Brotherhood-linked mosques in Oklahoma and Alabama. The mosques’ land is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) which was identified as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity by the federal government and the Brotherhood’s own documents.

The Islamic Society of Edmond in Oklahoma was victorious over Reverend Paul Blair of Fairview Baptist Church, who protested the Islamic Society’s plan to construct an activity center because the land is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and the listed applicant for the permit is the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo identifies ISNA and NAIT 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.” Federal prosecutors designated both as unindicted co-conspirators in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for financing Hamas. The two were listed as U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities.

Blair’s testimony focused on these connections, but the planning commission in Oklahoma can only make its decision based on issues regarding land usage.

The Islamic Society of Mobile in Alabama is facing more difficulty as ithopes to build a 6,400-square foot mosque and a 5,000-square-foot school. The mosque says that the current buildings are “dilapidated” and must be replaced.

Initially, the planning commission voted in favor of the project, but the city council unanimously rejected its zoning application. In this case, residents insisted that their opposition has nothing to do with Islam. Indeed, none of the complaints have mentioned that the mosque is owned by NAIT.

The residents also did not focus on the fact that the mosque president’s son, Omar Hammami, has joined the Al-Shabaab terrorist group in Somalia, a branch of Al-Qaeda. He has appeared in Al-Qaeda propaganda videos and is called “The American.” He was radicalized by another mosque attendee and led the University of South Alabama’s Muslim Students Association chapter. The MSA, like NAIT and ISNA, is also listed by the Muslim Brotherhood as one of its fronts.

OPINION: ACCUSED BOSTON BOMBERS’ MOSQUE SHOULD BE SHUTTERED

boston-mosque-apBy Pamela Geller:

USA Today reported Tuesday that “the mosque attended by the two brothers accused in the Boston Marathon bombing has been associated with other terrorist suspects, has invited radical speakers to a sister mosque in Boston and is affiliated with a Muslim group that critics say nurses grievances that can lead to extremism.”

The Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, the leading “moderate Muslim” in Washington throughout the 1990s. Alamoudi turned out to be an al-Qaeda financier and is now in prison.

And it wasn’t just Alamoudi. USA Today notes that others linked to the Islamic Society of Boston include Aafia Siddiqui, who “was arrested in Afghanistan in 2008 while in possession of cyanide canisters and plans for a chemical attack in New York City”; Tarek Mehanna, who was “sentenced in 2012 to 17 years in prison for conspiring to aid al-Qaeda”; Ahmad Abousamra, who “is wanted by the FBI on charges of providing support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill Americans in a foreign country”; and Jamal Badawi, who “was named as a non-indicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial in Texas over the funneling of money to Hamas, which is the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Originally a trustee of the Islamic Society of Boston was Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and perhaps the most popular Islamic preacher in the world. He once said on al-Jazeera: “Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler… This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.”

There have been well over 20,000 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11 (not including thwarted attacks). There has been a shocking number of jihad plots in the U.S. in recent years. Operation fetal position is not a strategy for victory, and make no mistake about it: we are at war.

On Wednesday, my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) issued an 18-point action plan for defending freedom in the wake of the Boston jihad bombings (read the whole thing here). Two of the points apply directly to the Islamic Society of Boston, where the Tsarnaev brothers went for Muslim prayers:

•   AFDI calls for immediate investigation into foreign mosque funding in the West and for new legislation making foreign funding of mosques in non-Muslim nations illegal.
•   AFDI calls for surveillance of mosques and regular inspections of mosques in the U.S. and other non-Muslim nations to look for pro-violence materials. Any mosque advocating jihad or any aspects of Sharia that conflict with Constitutional freedoms and protections should be closed.

New Islamist Mosque Opens in Virginia

Picture-9-363x350By Ryan Mauro

Last month, a new mosque called the ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) Islamic Center opened in Alexandria, Virginia. ICNA, an Islamist group with origins in the Jamaat-e-Islami of Pakistan, framed its inauguration as an interfaith victory, giving thanks to the three churches that let them worship on their premises as the mosque project was completed.

The two-story mosque replaced a house that was bought by ICNA in 2000. It says the facility cost $850,000 to build and can accommodate about 150 people. Good Shepherd Catholic Church, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and Aldersgate United Methodist Church allowed ICNA’s Northern Virginia chapter to worship as the mosque was being built

ICNA’s use of Aldersgate United Methodist Church led to a favorable segment on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which praised its pastor and mocked an evangelical critic. In one scene, the critic is seen saying mosques wouldn’t allow their premises to be used for Christian prayers. The correspondent joked about how embarrassing it’d be for him if the show cut to a clip of Christians being invited to a mosque.

Ironically, the clip the Daily Show showed was of Mohammed El-Filali of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, a mosque with extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. El-Filali led a chant comparing Israeli Prime Minister Sharon to Hitler at a rally in 2002. He also refused to condemn Palestinian suicide bombers in an interview with the Associated Press.

The pro-ICNA churches and the Daily Show apparently didn’t take the time to pop ICNA’s name into a search engine. If they did, it wouldn’t have taken long to find documentation of the group’s Islamist history.

Its origins lie with a Pakistani Islamist group called Jamaat-e-Islami. ICNA’s own publication said in 1996 that it was founded with the “organizational development methodology” of Jamaat-e-Islami’s founder. A former ICNA president and secretary-general, Ashrafuzzaman Khan, was indicted by Bangladesh’s International Crimes Tribunal in October for his role as “chief executioner” in at least 18 political assassinations in 1971. Khan belonged to the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami.

A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood strategic memorandum, which says its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within,” lists ICNA as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo refers to productive meetings between ICNA and the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood “in an attempt to reach a unity of merger.” ICNA has long held its annual conferences in conjunction with the Muslim American Society, an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, in apparent fulfillment of this objective.

ICNA has not abandoned its Islamist ideology since then. Its 2010 handbook laid out a five-level strategy towards achieving a “united Islamic state, governed by an elected khalifah in accordance with the laws of shari’ah (Islamic law),” right in line with the Muslim Brotherhood doctrine of gradualism. Its last conference in December featured at least a dozen Islamist speakers, including ones that have supported Hamas and have ties to the Brotherhood. Among the event’s sponsors were Turkish Airlines and the DISH Network.

Why Mosques Should Be Shut Down

By Martel Sobiesky:

The die was cast in 632 AD when Mohammed built the first mosque in Medina. It became an inviolable and enduring precedent. Using the mosque as a base of infiltration and invasion, he methodically proceeded to destroy and obliterate all religions and governments throughout the Arabian Peninsula. It was as if some ghoulish monster had risen from the parched desert sands and could only slake its thirst by feeding on blood. It born a toxic formula carried thru to present time – first build mosques then conquer.

Now the monster of Islamofascism has risen in America with nearly 2000 mosques jeering at us, 80% of them financed by Saudi Arabia, an inimical foreign government, illicitly given trespass upon sovereign soil by our feckless and corrupt leadership besotted by Islamic oil money. The influence of Islamic oil money on America’s leadership is enormous to the extent that we have been “bought and paid for”. Steven Emerson of the “Investigative Project on Terrorism”(IPT) elucidates: “the enemy is advancing, fueled by unparalleled amounts of money, helping the Islamists garner unprecedented support from politicians, government officials, journalists, commentators, academics, and more.” Steven Emerson has compiled a mountain of evidence proving his case.

Each of these mosques is currently conducting various types of jihadist attacks such as: propaganda jihad, immigration jihad, education jihad, media jihad, marriage jihad, lawsuit jihad, moderate Islam jihad, sharia jihad, bribery jihad, stealth jihad and all varieties of nefarious and clandestine means to sabotage and undermine our nation as required by the Koran. All this has been enabled under the guise of “moderate Islam”, the most effective psychological warfare infiltration ruse in history.

In their booklet The Mosque Exposed” , S. Solomon and E. Almaqdisi remark: “The mosque is the command and control center of Islam.” They further warn that by allowing mosques to be built in America we are helping build the enemies command and control center in the USA. They explain that Islam is at perpetual war with all non-Muslims and the mosque its center of operations. S. Solomon’s opinion is brilliantly qualified having been a former Islamic Sharia jurist.

In his article, The Muslim Mosque: A State Within A State , Vijay Kumar former Tennessee congressional candidate explains what a mosque does. “A mosque in the United States is a command and control center of a foreign political and military state that seeks the overthrow of our government, and an Imam in a mosque is a political and military representative of a foreign state that calls for the overthrow of the United States.” A native of India and longtime American citizen Vijay Kumar readily understands the atrocities perpetuated by the mosque community which have wreaked bloody havoc upon his country of birth for over 1000 years as required by the Koran.

Fellow Americans it is bad news if you have a mosque in your neighborhood, while putting on a smiling face it stealthily plots to emulate Mohammed in Medina – first build a mosque and next take over your neighborhood. The most important thing any American can do is steadfastly lobby for the shutting down of the mosque in their area.

Truth be told, Islam is not an authentic religion, rather it is an ideology of predation and the mosque is clearly the egg from which it hatches. The book, “Muslim Mafia”, by David Gaubatz and Paul Sperry reveals Islam to be a criminal gang bent upon worldwide conquest by hook or by crook. Please note, it is the death penalty for leaving Islam and the death penalty for criticizing Islam.  Is not the death penalty the sine qua non of all criminal gangs?  Genuine religions do not require the death penalty for apostates or detractors.

Undoubtedly the world’s most profoundly informed and stalwart expert telling the unabashed and candid facts about Islam and its mosques is former Muslim, Mr. Ali Sina. He states:

“The truth about Islam is ugly. It is so ugly that no one wants to look at it. We did. It is vile, disgusting and crude. We revealed that truth with brutal honesty, and challenged anyone to prove us wrong.”

Ali Sina offers $50,000 to anyone who can overturn the truth he tells about Islam and challenges everyone to debate. After 10 years of public debate he has easily defeated all opponents making him the paradigm of wisdom regarding all things Islamic. The truth will set us free and unless we adopt the sagacious consul of Ali Sina, Islam using the mosque as its base, will turn America into a living hell.

The “about me” section on Ali Sina’s website provides an insightful summary into the cruel realities of Islam. Ali Sina deserves a Noble Peace Prize for his efforts to educate our weak minded leadership and nation. If you think him wrong debate him, and you will discover your ignorance and perhaps your lack of intellectual honesty about the abject tyranny inherent in Islam. Ali Sina’s book “Understanding Mohammed and Muslims” is without comparison in the veracity of its content.

Habitually denying the obvious fact that mosques have never been benign places of worship will destroy any nation including ours. To the contrary, mosques are the beach heads, forward bases of invasion and infiltration encampments established for the usurping and destruction of their host country. Make no mistake about it, “moderate” mosques are the indispensable incubators nourishing the homegrown Islamic invasion of America. Here is a succinct and reliable depiction:

“Moderate” mosques are the harbingers of America’s demise. They are like cancer cells whose primary function is to metastasize and destroy all things non-Islamic worldwide.

This is not a personal opinion, rather it is the absolute mandate bellicosely commanded by Allah in the Koran. It is further ordered in Mohammed’s 800 page biography. It is required again by the Hadith reports, and dictated yet again by Sharia, the barbaric Islamic legal code that obligates under penalty of death, all mosques carry out the Islamic conquest of the entire world.

Any ideology that calls for the overthrow of the American government is obviously illegal and must be outlawed. The slam dunk evidence against mosques is the Koran and its supporting literatures. Please note, that’s four smoking guns, making mosques the most blatantly villainous institutions in the history of the USA. “Moderate” mosques clearly do not belong in the USA because they are mandated by the Koran to destroy us. For this reason, it is imperative that all mosques in America be immediately shut down, boarded up, shuttered, put out of business, and ceased from further operations.

American Mosques: Jihad’s Incubators was written by Frank Gaffney president of the Center for Security Policy. Gaffney cites research data that approximately 80% of American mosques advocate or otherwise promote violence. What the research omits is that 100% of mosques seek the downfall of our government. This is because the so called “moderate” mosques that do not openly advocate violence conduct a wily and surreptitious jihad causing much greater harm.

All mosques conduct two general types of jihad: bloody jihad and scam (propaganda) jihad also known as stealth jihad, a term coined by Robert Spencer in his excellent book “Stealth Jihad”. Scam jihad and bloody jihad work together “hand in glove” in all “moderate” mosques with the same goal of conquering America. If any American believes that the “moderate” mosque in their neighborhood is peaceful and does not want to overthrow the USA then they have been scammed and are a victim of propaganda jihad.

Tragically, the large majority of America’s leadership are dunces who have swallowed the verbiage of the propaganda jihad, and our entire national security apparatus has adopted the scam by touting the phrase “moderate” Islam. The  mosques built in America have been allowed by cloaking themselves in the scam called — “moderate” Islam, making the label “moderate Islam” the most efficacious psyop in world history.

Martel Sobieskey has about 40 years research experience in the field of religious conditioning and its relationship to warfare. He is greatly alarmed that America’s politicians, military brass, educators, journalists, intelligence analysts, security and police personnel, have failed to comprehend the deeply entrenched jihadist conditioning inherent in all of Islam – “moderates” included.

Is Hamas Building a 53,000 Square Foot Facility in America?

By Eric Allen Bell:

Editor’s note: The compilation of materials used in this article are the result of a collaboration between Steve Emerson, of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Elizabeth Coker, a retired journalist and stay-at-home-mom, Jerry Gordon, former Army Intelligence officer and Editor for New English Review, and Eric Allen Bell, Filmmaker and writer.  This article was written by Eric Allen Bell who was at one time a staunch pro-mosque supporter, who had a complete change in perspective after the Arab Spring. Bell was banned as a writer from the Daily Kos after he published 3 stories critical of Islam, which ran afoul of the mindset there.  For more on that, read “The High Price of Telling the Truth About Islam.”

Pictured Above: A Hamas Terrorism Pledge, posted online by a trusted Board Member of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, TN.

Hamas, also known as the “Islamic Resistance Movement,” is an organization that has engaged in countless suicide bombings, against unarmed civilians.  50% of their funding comes from the Saudis through “Islamic charity organizations.”  The acts of Islamic terrorism by Hamas have been aimed primarily at killing Jews.  The US State Department, Canada, Japan, Israel and the entire European Union have named Hamas as an Islamic terrorist organization.

The Hamas Charter, identified Hamas as the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine and declares its members to be Muslims who “raise the banner of Jihad.” The Hamas charter states that “our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious” and calls for the obliteration of the Jewish State.

To put the Islamic preoccupation with killing the Jews into its proper context, here is a piece of scripture from the Muslim holy book called the Hadith:

The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him. (Sahih Muslim, 41:6985; see also 41:6981-84 and Sahih Bukhari, 4:52:176,177 and 4:56:791)

The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, TN recently defied court orders to cease construction of a 53,000 square foot mega mosque.  At the time of this article the ICM are building defiantly, as fast as they can. Once completed, this massive structure, we are expected to believe, is designed to accommodate only a couple hundred Muslim families, with millions of dollars in questionable financing.   To say that something is a little fishy here would be an understatement.

Pictured Above: Construction of the 53,000 square foot Islamic facility.

On the board of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, TN is a man named Mosaad Rowash.  The purpose of this article is to ask one question and one question only:  Why is a senior leader of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, posting pictures which express his overwhelmingly allegiance, loyalty, and a love for Hamas?

WHO IS MOSAAD ROWASH?

Pictured Above:  Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Board Member Mosaad Rowash in an MTSU shirt, at a Muslim American Society (MAS) Camp.

Interesting fact about the MAS (Muslim American Society) is that it is a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood, whom we will be looking at more closely in just a moment.  First, let’s look at some of the images that Mosaad Rowash posted online to his large network of friends throughout the Islamic world.

ARABIC TO ENGLISH TRANSLATION: “With happiness we meet”

Pictured Above: An image honoring Hamas leaders Ahmed Yassin,  a founder of Hamas, and a co-founder  Abdul Aziz al-Rantissi over a crowd of armed Hamas militants.

Here’s a revealing passage taken from a Hamas leaflet:

O all the people, men and women. O our children: the Jews – brothers of the apes, assassins of the prophets, bloodsuckers, warmongers – are murdering you, depriving you of life after having plundered your homeland and your homes. Only Islam can break the Jews and destroy their dream.

In wondering why anyone would be all warm and fuzzy about Hamas, it should also be noted that in all Hamas-controlled regions, the brutal Islamic law (the Sharia) is enforced.  This includes gender apartheid, the stoning of women as punishment for being raped, the execution of homosexuals, death for leaving Islam, forced amputations and other unthinkable human rights abuses.

Why would a leader of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, proudly post a picture of this Islamic terrorist to everyone in his MySpace network?

Pictured Above: Islamic Terrorist, Sheik Yassin,  Former leader of Hamas, assassinated by the IDF

According to Wikipedia:

Sheik Yassin was the dominant authority of the Hamas leadership, which was directly involved in planning, orchestrating and launching terror attacks carried out by the organization. In this capacity, Yassin personally gave his approval for the launching of Qassam rockets against Israeli cities, as well as for the numerous Hamas terrorist bombings and suicide operations. In his public appearances and interviews, Yassin called repeatedly for a continuation of the ‘armed struggle’ against Israel, and for an intensification of the terrorist campaign against its citizens.

Yet another picture of an Islamic terrorist, former Hamas Leader, Dr. Rantisis.

Interesting fact – Islamic terrorist, Dr. Rantisi was also a major Holocaust denier:

According to Wikipedia: In August 2003, Al-Rantisi wrote in the Hamas newspaper Al-Risala:

It is no longer a secret that the Zionists were behind the Nazis’ murder of many Jews, and agreed to it, with the aim of intimidating them and forcing them to immigrate to Palestine.

Why did this Mosque Board Member post the logo for the Muslim Brotherhood, the forefather of Hamas and Al Qaeda?

Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna said, ”It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated; to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

An Inconvenient Truth about the Muslim Brotherhood:

The Muslim Brotherhood is the largest Islamic organization in the world.  Its most famous slogan, used worldwide, is “Islam is the solution.”  As Islamic scholar, Robert Spencer points out repeatedly, in many of his public talks and books, the Muslim Brotherhood is the direct forefather of both Hamas and Al Qaeda.  This organization does not go by “The Muslim Brotherhood” in America.  But perhaps you may have heard of some of its front groups:  Muslim Student Association, Muslim American Society, Islamic Society of North America, Islamic Circle of North America, North American Islamic Trust, International Institute of Islamic Thought, and several others.  And they were all listed in this Muslim Brotherhood “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood of North America,” which states:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process”. The Muslim Brotherhood must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

Here is the original memo in Arabic:

Another Photo, Mosque Board Member Mosaad Rowash, Posted Online:

I don’t know why this senior Mosque official posted that, or these:

AND PERHAPS NOT SURPRISINGLY, THIS MOSQUE BOARD MEMBER POSTED THIS IMAGE AS WELL:

Good thing the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro has a spokesman.  Let’s take a look at him next…

Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, TN – Spokesman, Dr. Saleh Sbenaty

By now, you probably have some questions about the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.  You can reach their spokesperson at: http://www.icmtn.org/contact.html.  It seems that perhaps he has a lot to answer for.

Spokesman (unless they change it again) Dr. Selah M. Sbetany is one of the original founders of the mosque.  Dr. Sbetany heads up the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Studies at MTSU.

While studying in Syria, before leaving around 1982, Sbetany had earned the honor of being named as “Top Graduating Student, College of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Damascus University, 1980.”

Interesting bit of trivia: Saleh Sbetany left Syria when the Muslim Brotherhood was expelled in 1982.  I don’t know if that means anything, but I thought it made sense to mention it and let you decide:

According to Wikipedia: During a 50-day moratorium on the application of the 7 July law, over a thousand members of the Muslim Brotherhood turned themselves in, hoping to escape the death penalty imposed on members of the terrorist organization; information published about them in the official press may give some insight into the composition of the Brotherhood’s membership at that time. Most of those who gave themselves up were students under twenty-five years of age, from Damascus and other large cities; others were schoolteachers, professors or engineers.

Here is part of an email I recently received from Dr. Sbenaty, member of the religion of peace: “…the lies (you are) spreading is a characteristic of a scumbag to say the least.”

Rapid Rise of U.S. Mosques: Sign of What’s To Come

Before its News:

This 74 percent growth has occurred in the years following the deadliest warring attack on American soil in history, perpetrated by radical Islamists. Might point out, that those “radical” Islamists spent many months prior to the 9/11 attack posing as “moderates” in order to assimilate and evade suspicion. Look up: Taqiyya.

True, many of these mosques are only places of worship for peaceful Muslims. But it has been proven often enough, that some mosques are used as hotbeds for anti-American rhetoric, terrorist havens, diversionary funding to terror organizations and espousing hatred toward non-Muslims. Many serve as the war rooms for strategy planning in the covert political and terror war against the United States.

Mosques seem benign enough to most people who liken them to churches and synagogues. That’s what journalist Laura Mansfield thought in 2005, when she visited a mosque in the southern part of the nation in response to an open invitation by the Imam to local women to come and see how beautiful Islam truly is as a religion.

Ms. Mansfield arrived about one hour early. It should have been an innocuous experience. She was told by a Muslim man to come back later, but when she asked to stay, she was granted the opportunity to wait in the hall until the other women arrived.  During this time, she was able to overhear the Imam and other men speaking in Arabic, which she understood and spoke fluently. What she overheard was anti-American hate talk, discussing the pro-jihad movement and what to explain to the American women when they visited. When the   ladies arrived, the rhetoric changed 180 degrees.

www.islamreview.com/articles/jihadsmalltown.shtml

Now, covert visits to mosques are off-limits for everyone, including law enforcement agencies, because our government tells us we should not single out Muslims. Federal law enforcement agencies have been ordered to omit references to Islam in their terror training.

I seriously doubt that the Christian or Jewish places of worship have exploded with those kinds of increases in the last twenty years. If the pattern holds true, there will be more than 4000 mosques in the U.S.by the year 2020, and 8000 by 2030.

The trend will follow what has happened in Europe. In a 2008 speech by Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders said:

“There are now thousands of mosques throughoutEurope. With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.”

Islam is rapidly expanding throughout Europe. Population growth is expected to double in twenty years as Muslims procreate at a rate three to four times greater than indigenous Europeans. It’s simple math. As Mr. Wilders and other European dignitaries have said, the Muslims do not assimilate. They do not identify as Europeans, rather, as Muslims only, and their intent is to eventually dominate all of society.

France has over 750 no-go zones which are Muslim enclaves that French authorities dare not enter, thus leaving them all to self-government under Sharia, not French law. More from Mr. Wilders’ speech:

“Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseille and MalmoinSweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities. In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims. In once-tolerantAmsterdam, gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear “whore, whore.” In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can in many cases no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In England Sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.”

The plan that is slowly coming to fruition was concocted and implemented by the notorious Muslim Brotherhood, the most powerful and dangerous Islamist organization in the world. They are now ready to assume power in all the mid-east nations that have undergone “Arab Spring.” They are rooted in over eighty counties in the world, have unlimited financial resources and have spawned scores of organizations, violent and non-violent — including Hamas and al Qaeda —  to promote the global jihad. They also spawned more than thirty organizations in the United States with the expressed purpose of infiltrating our infrastructure. Included among those organizations are CAIR, the MSA, ISNA and the MAS.

The Muslim Brotherhood manifesto was discovered in 2004 during the Holy Land Foundation investigation by law enforcement authorities in a sub-basement of a home in Virginia, owned by a high level member of the Muslim Brotherhood. That manifesto is unambiguous in declaring that the intentions of the Brotherhood is to destroy the United States “from within,” specifically stating it will be accomplished by “their own hand.”  The entire text of the document is linked below…in Arabic and English.

Surge in Mosque Construction Parallels Growing Shariah Adherence

 

Islamic Cultural Center; Tempe, Arizona

The results of a February, 2012, study show a 74 percent jump in the number of U.S. mosques since 2000, now counted at 2,106 nationwide. Sponsored by a clutch of organizations affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood — the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIT) among them — the study interviewed 524 U.S. mosque leaders who overwhelmingly (56%) asserted the relevance of the Qur’an and other foundational Islamic scriptures to modern life. Another 31 per cent reportedly based their beliefs on “centuries of Islamic scholarship.”

Obviously, these two segments of study respondents are not necessarily in conflict with one another, but rather overlap rather neatly, making a total of 86 per cent of American Muslim leaders whose Islamic faith is based on the authoritative texts of Islam and who furthermore believe them relevant to life in the 21st century.

Islamic Center of America; Dearborn, Michigan

The study also measured markers of community cohesion such as weekly mosque attendance and attendance at Eid holy day prayers, finding a spike in the numbers of American Muslims who reported fulfilling these obligations. Interestingly, this Muslim Brotherhood study seems to correlate well with the results of a summer, 2011, empirical study published by the Middle East Quarterly, entitled “Shari’a and Violence in American Mosques.”

Conducted by Mordechai Kedar (an assistant professor in the department of Arabic and Middle East studies and a research associate with the Begin-Sadat (BESA) Center for Strategic Studies, both at Bar Ilan University in Israel) and David Yerushalmi (general counsel for The Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C., and director of policy studies at the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies in Potomac, MD), the study sought to correlate high levels of shariah adherence and overall commitment to Islamic community cohesion.

Islamic Center of Cleveland (Grand Mosque); Parma, Ohio

Kedar and Yerushalmi collected empirical indicators of observable measures of religious devotion linked to shariah adherence in U.S. mosques and sought to correlate those with the presence of violence-positive materials at those same mosques.

 

Their study also sought to ascertain whether a correlation exists between the presence of violence-positive materials at a mosque and the promotion of the jihad doctrine by mosque leaders.

The findings did support a statistically significant correlation between violent literature on the mosque premises and the incidence of shariah-adherent behaviors among the worshippers. Disturbingly, mosques that contained materials tending towards violence, and whose imams recommended their study, demonstrated the best attendance overall while those with no such materials were most sparsely attended.  

Viewing these two studies side by side, then, some unsettling conclusions may be drawn. First, mosque construction and mosque attendance in the U.S. are both up significantly over the last decade. At the same time, the majority of the leadership of those mosques remains shariah-adherent and convinced of the relevance of Islamic law to modern life in America.

The Kedar-Yerushalmi study adds context to these findings with some disturbing results of its own, documenting more than 80% of all American mosques with texts on the premises that advocate violent jihad either strongly or moderately as an important Muslim duty.

Given that it is precisely the authoritative texts of ShariahIslam (Qur’an, Sunnah and Sharia) that are most likely to advocate jihad to conquer infidels; mandate doctrinal inequality between Muslims and non-Muslims, men and women, slave and free; and support the shariah death penalty for adultery, apostasy, homosexuality and slander/blasphemy, the exploding number of mosques across America and people in them who believe in such things must give pause to any paying attention to the convergent findings in these two studies.

There’s another study out in February, 2012, about “Muslim-American Terrorism in the Decade Since 9/11” by Charles Kurzman from the Department of Sociology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. It purports to show that plots and arrests of Muslim American jihadis dropped in the period from 2009-2011, contrary to the fears of relieved U.S. government officials.

As Ed Koch, former mayor of New York City, noted in a March 6, 2012 op-ed piece in the Jewish World Review entitled, “In Defense of a Targeted City’s Jihad Prevention,” though, even Kurzman acknowledges that the total number of U.S. Muslims engaged in the full range of terror-related activity amounts to hundreds more than merely those charged in violent plots or attacks. Financing and other support activities are also a legitimate form of jihad and including those figures in the overall analysis of U.S. Muslims engaged in activity intended to replace the Constitution with Islamic law yields a much more accurate picture of the shariah threat to America.

Each of these studies adds valuable understanding about what the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” called “civilization jihad” to eliminate and destroy “the western civilization from within.”

Violent, kinetic terrorism is not the only means by which the forces of shari’a-adherent Islam target American society for conquest. It is only the most visible, intended by the horror of its visibility to condition infidels to so fear what is yet to come that submission to Islam seems the lesser of the evils confronting them.

We know that mosques have been described by the authorities of Islam as the headquarters of the “Islamic State” and “the starting point to the expansion of Islam and the Islamic conquests.” Ibn Taimiyah wrote that the mosque is a place where “matters of politics were dealt with, troops and platoons were deployed” and “the war booties are divided.”

Even Turkey’s president Tayyip Erdogan famously quoted an Islamic poem about the role of the mosque in Islamic expansion:  “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…”

 In the final analysis, the rapid expansion of Islamic mosques across the U.S. carries with it ramifications that merit further inquiry, the kind that the New York City Police Department has been so successful at conducting these last 10 plus years since the attacks of September 11, 2001.

From the so-called “Blind Sheikh” at the Al Farooq mosque in Brooklyn to Anwar al-Awlaki and the Dar al-Hijra mosque near the nation’s Capitol, U.S. law enforcement officers have seen mosques fulfill the central role in the recruitment, training and “radicalization” of Muslims in America.

It’s not just about “countering violent extremism” once an attack takes place or a plot is discovered: Successful law enforcement means identifying and countering the incubators of Islamic jihadist ideology before violence ever has a chance to explode across the headlines.

The incubators where Islamic doctrine, law and scriptures are taught and nurtured through the milestones of progressive revelation are the mosques. Mosque studies such as the ones cited here, even ones produced by the Muslim Brotherhood, provide valuable insight into the scope of the shari’a challenge.

Mosque Growth Explodes in America Post-911

Atlas Shrugs:

Putting to rest the lie that mosques were under siege by freedom-loving Americans, their growth has been explosive (no pun intended). This explosion of mosque construction could be why Hamas-tied CAIR is attempting to stifle the real story about mosques in America, spreading just today their manufactured narrative that mosques are “encouraging civic engagement.” In reality, over 80% are preaching jihad. That’s 1,700 mosques in America. You think there will never be any consequences of that?

US Muslim study finds jump in American mosques Wall Street Journal, February 29, 2012

“NEW YORK — The number of American mosques has increased dramatically in the last decade despite post 9/11 protests aimed at Muslim houses of worship, according to a new study. The new Islamic centers serve Muslims who moved into the suburbs and newer immigrants from Africa, Iraq and elsewhere.

Researchers conducting the national count found a total of 2,106 Islamic centers, compared to 1,209 in 2000 and 962 in 1994. About one-quarter of the centers were built between 2000-2011, as the community faced intense scrutiny by government officials and a suspicious public. In 2010, protest against an Islamic center near ground zero erupted into a national debate over Islam, extremism and religious freedom. Anti-mosque demonstrations spread to Tennessee, California and other states.”

Finally.

The empirical evidence is deeply disturbing, but not surprising. An overwhelming number of American mosques teach, advance, promote violent jihad as dictated by Islamic teaching. Is it any wonder that Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups like CAIR are pursuing legislation and policy to restrict law enforcement infiltration of mosques? (here)

How great is the danger of extremist violence in the name of Islam in the United States? Recent congressional hearings into this question by Rep. Peter King (Republican of New York), chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, have generated a firestorm of controversy among his colleagues, the press, and the general public. Though similar hearings have taken place at least fourteen times since 2001,[1] King was labeled a latter-day Joe McCarthy and the hearings called an assault on civil liberties and a contemporary witch-hunt. Yet the larger dilemmas outlined by both the congressman and some of his witnesses remain: To what extent are American Muslims, native-born as well as naturalized, being radicalized by Islamists? And what steps can those who are sworn to the protection of American citizenry take that will uncover and disrupt the plots of those willing to take up arms against others for the sake of jihad?

Shari’a and Violence in American Mosques Mordechai Kedar and David Yerushalmi

A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers.  Of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent texts at all.  Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts.  In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts.  The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshipper study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent mosques.  Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to promote violent jihad.  The leadership of mosques that featured violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.

PREFACE

The debate over the connection between Islam and its legal doctrine and system known as Sharia on the one hand and terrorism committed in the name of Islam on the other rages on among counter terrorism professionals, academics, policy experts, theologians, and politicians.  Much of this debate centers on the evidence that the perpetrators of violence in the name of Islam source the moral, theological, and legal motivations and justifications for their actions in Sharia.  Much of the opposition to this focus on Sharia centers on the argument that Sharia is and has been historically malleable and exploited for good and bad causes.

This study seeks to enter this fray but at a more empirical level.  Since we know that mosques are in fact a situs of recruitment and “radicalization” for terrorism committed in the name of Islam, this study seeks to enter into that domain to determine if there is an empirical correlation between actual, manifest Sharia-related behaviors and the presence of violent and jihad-based literature, and further, the promotion of that literature.  While the presence of violent and jihad-based literature alone does not necessarily suggest the worshippers at such a mosque adopt the violent literature’s approach to the use of violence, if the imams at such mosques also promote the literature, and if those mosques are more likely to invite guest imams and speakers who are known to promote violent jihad, the presence of these factors together would be strongly suggestive of an environment prone to jihad recruitment.  Thus, this study also seeks to determine if the spiritual leadership in these mosques is supportive of this genre of literature.
