Islamists Set Their Sights on Georgia and the Tea Party

unspecified

CounterJihad, y Bruce Cornibe, Sept. 2, 2016:

The Georgia chapter of the Islamist group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is making a concerted effort to reach out to Republicans and conservative groups in Georgia. Apparently, CAIR wants to reach out to groups that it often demonizes as anti-Muslim bigots and Islamophobes– such as tea party groups— and to educate them on the basics of Islam. Georgia CAIR executive director Edward Ahmed Mitchell thinks that, by concentrating on conservative groups will help “solve the problem.” That is the alleged ‘Islamophobia’ problem. 90.1 FM WABE provides some details on this Muslim Brotherhood inspired outreach:

Georgia CAIR wants to provide an educational ‘Islam 101’ presentation, answer questions and talk about Muslim prayer rituals and demographics.

Mitchell said they typically get a lot of questions about terrorism, and terms like “jihad,” and “Sharia,” and he likes the opportunity to share facts.

We already know that the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is committed to “a Civilization-Jihadist Process” which deals with carrying out a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated.” With that said, imagine learning terms like “jihad” and “Sharia” from a Muslim Brotherhood front group like CAIR – a group that is labeled a terrorist organization by the U.A.E. At the very least, folks will not get honest answers from these efforts.

This more intentional type of outreach to conservatives by Islamists might be newer with CAIR Georgia (at least by Mitchell’s comments in the 90.1 FM WABE article), but is has been attempted for years by other Islamists. With conservatives as the Brotherhood’s main opponent in the U.S. one can expect more of these Brotherhood ‘outreaches’ to conservative groups to try to advance their Islamist agenda by deception.

Lately, CAIR Georgia has been doing more than just strategizing about conservative outreach, they have also been heavily involved in helping overturn a moratorium that kept the construction of a mosque and Islamic cemetery on a 135-acre plot of land in Newton County, Georgia at bay. The moratorium has recently been lifted to the dismay of many people of Newton County. Of course, members of the media, Islamists groups like CAIR, and others want to essentially call those opposed to the mosque and cemetery anti-Muslim bigots, haters, Islamophobes, and many other condescending terms instead of seriously addressing legitimate concerns.

First, when “the mosque development proposal was presented to Development Services in June 2015” allegedly “the place of worship was referred to as Avery Community Church and Cemetery.” It sounds pretty misleading. Second, we’re not just talking about a mosque and cemetery – it’s going to be more like a Muslim commune. Off of Masjid At-Taqwa’s (Doraville, Georgia) website, the plans for the 135 acres include: “Cemetery, Burial Preparation Facility, Masjid, Schools and University with their own athletic fields and sports area, Public Park, and lot more.” Furthermore, who’s going to pay for this grand vision? Imam Mohammad Islam said his congregation is comprised “of mostly Bangladeshi middle to lower income Muslims.”

In addition, by the looks of the small size of Masjid At-Taqwa’s current building, via a picture on their website, they have to be expecting a lot more Muslims coming to the area or they are receiving some large outside donations in order to cover the costs for this new construction. Third, are they possibly expecting Muslim refugees? New American Pathways (refugee resettlement organization operating in Georgia) spokeswoman Amy Crownover discussed the prospects of Newton County being an area for refugee resettlement saying:

“We work in partnership with communities, looking for communities where refugees can be successful,” which requires easy access to public transportation, jobs, English classes and other services. Newton County “isn’t an ideal setting,” Crownover said.

Even after the patronizing remarks it’s hard to believe this 135-acre Muslim commune wouldn’t be an area of interest for refugee resettlement. Furthermore, we have already seen how CAIR has advocated for more Muslim refugees.

Also, what kind of ideology is this Muslim community preaching and teaching? Partnering with the Hamas linked CAIR is not a good sign.

We can see by the mosque’s website they seem to favor segregating the genders – such as keeping a member of the “opposite sex from seeing or touching the deceased.” What kind of other Islamic/Sharia guidelines do they abide by? In addition, with cases like Muslims of the Americas it’s not absurd to think that other militant Islamic groups could have the intentions of taking over large areas of land throughout the U.S. to serve as training centers for jihad. There are many other serious concerns about this future Newton County Muslim commune (ex. potential problems associated with Islamic burials) but thanks to groups like CAIR, they are put on the backburner.

CAIR doesn’t care about this country. CAIR may reference the U.S. Constitution and freedom of religion as much as any group, but they are only tricks to bring about their goal of Sharia to America. This is why we need to pass legislation like “the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015” in order to stop these Muslim Brotherhood front groups from subverting our system.

Radical Mosques in America: Is There One Near You?

Radical-Mosques-US-HPClarion has identified over 80 Islamist orgs/mosques in the US, resulting in prominent media coverage on FOX News and the Daily Caller website.

Clarion Project, by Ryan Mauro, Nov. 26, 2015:

The Clarion Project has identified over 80 Islamist organizations including mosques in the United States, resulting in prominent media coverage on FOX News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” and theDaily Caller website.

Watch Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst, Prof. Ryan Mauro, on “Fox & Friends” discussing four of the radical mosques and the need to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization:

The four organizations discussed in the segment are:

The segment follows the Daily Caller’s creation of a map of over 80 radical mosques based on Clarion’s research. This is about four percent of the estimated 2,106 mosques in the U.S., the news site wrote.

In addition to those 83 sites, there are many other Islamist organizations operating in the U.S. and mosques due to be written about. You can learn about Islamist groups in your state by searching the Islamist Organizations in America section of our website that is continuously updated.

The North American Islamic Trust’s (NAIT’s) website says it owns mosques in 42 states and has stated that it owns the titles to over 325 properties.

In January, a prominent Muslim leader in the United Kingdom with links to the Muslim Brotherhood estimated that half of the mosques in America were founded by Brotherhood members.

Senator Ted Cruz has introduced important legislation to help get the Muslim Brotherhood designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The House version of the bill was introduced by Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and is now endorsed by five additional representatives.

We encourage readers to ask their congressmen and Senators (and presidential candidates) for their statements on this legislation and/or their general position on designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group.

Please send us any written or recorded statements so we can update our website to document where our leaders stand.

ISIS recruitment from Phoenix Mosque for attack in Garland Texas clearly shows why US District Court should not stop the NYPD from surveilling mosques.

CEzqeu3VAAAVaK0Florida Family Association, May 21, 2015:

Mohammad Elshinawy, Asad Dandia, Masjid At-Taqwa, Masjid Al-Ansar, Muslims Giving Back and Hamid Raza sued the City of New York in an attempt to force the New York Police Department to remove their report titled Radicalization in the West: The Home Grown Threat.   The lawsuit also sought to stop the New York Police Department from surveilling them and their mosques.  More details regarding this lawsuit are posted below under Florida Family Association’s January 18, 2015 email alert.

Raza et al v. City of New York et al is pending in the U.S. District Court Eastern District of New York.

CEzxMOuW8AATJEZImam Siraj Wahhaj who runs the Masjid At Taqwa  mosque was the key note speaker at the Garland Texas Islamist rally on January 17, 2015 that called for the defeat of Islamophobia.  “Ready to defeat Islamophobia?  This is not an event. It is the beginning of a movement. A movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message. Salla Allahu Alaihe wa Sallam.  This benefit will raise funds to establish a Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community, which will develop effective responses to anti-Islamic attacks.

Two former attendees of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix (ICCP), Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, were killed by police on May 3, 2015 after they shot at security detail for the “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest in Garland Texas.  The “Draw Muhammad” contest was held in response to the Ready to Defeat Islamophobia conference held at the same convention center on January 17, 2015 just ten days after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in France.   The “Draw Muhammad” contest also focused on concern that American leaders are espousing Sharia condemnation for daring to rightfully criticize Muhammad.

CEz7Qk2WMAAtaxKIslamic Community Center of Phoenix now has four terrorists linked to their mosque. Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix, said Simpson and Soofi attended prayers at the mosque but were not regular members.  However, this Islamic Community Center of Phoenix Youtube.com promotion video shows that Simpson was a regular member.  Simpson and Soofi were not the only two terrorists spawned from ICCP. Two other previous ICCP mosque attendees — Hassan Abu-Jihaad and Derrick Shareef — are currently in federal prison on terrorism-related charges.

ISIS proclaims 71 soldiers in 15 states will kill the leader of the “Draw Muhammad” event and everyone who supported the event.

To our brothers and sisters fighting for the Sake of Allah, we make dua for you and ask Allah to guide your bullets, terrify your enemies, and establish you in the Land. As our noble brother in the Phillipines said in his bayah, “This is the Golden Era, everyone who believes… is running for Shaheed”.

PamGellerThe attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah in the heart of our enemy. Our aim was the khanzeer Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter. This will heal the hearts of our brothers and disperse the ones behind her. To those who protect her: this will be your only warning of housing this woman and her circus show. Everyone who houses her events, gives her a platform to spill her filth are legitimate targets. We have been watching closely who was present at this event and the shooter of our brothers. We knew that the target was protected. Our intention was to show how easy we give our lives for the Sake of Allah.

black is flagWe have 71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack any target we desire. Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, We are increasing in number bithnillah. Of the 15 states, 5 we will name… Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan. The disbelievers who shot our brothers think that you killed someone untrained, nay, they gave you their bodies in plain view because we were watching.

The next six months will be interesting, To our Amir Al Mu’mineen make dua for us and continue your reign, May Allah enoble your face.

May Allah send His peace and blessings upon our Prophet Muhummad and all those who follow until the last Day.

Abu Ibrahim Al Ameriki

The original ISIS fatwa order is posted here.

Clearly, an order by the U.S. District Court restraining the NYPD from surveilling mosques for potential terrorist activity and/or censoring the NYPD report titled Radicalization in the West: The Home Grown Threat would have dire consequences for the public safety of all Americans.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send that urges Judge Chen and Magistrate Azrack not to restrict law enforcement from surveilling mosques and not to censor the NYPD report titled Radicalization in the West: The Home Grown Threat.

Florida Family Association January 20, 2015 email alert.

The New York Post reported on January 18, 2015 “NYC may yank terrorism report to appease mosque ‘spying’ critics”:  The article states in part:

In top-secret talks to settle federal lawsuits against the NYPD for monitoring mosques, the city is weighing a demand that it scrub from its Web site a report on Islamic terrorists, The Post has learned.

The groundbreaking, 92-page report, titled “Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat,” angers critics who say it promotes “religious profiling” and discrimination against Muslims. But law-enforcement sources say removing the report now would come at the worst time — after mounting terror attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris, Boston, Sydney and Ottawa.

The federal lawsuit mentioned in the first paragraph of the New York Post article is Raza et al v. City of New York et al.  This lawsuit seeks to stop the New York Police Department’s surveillance of specific Muslim individuals and mosques.

Peter G. Farrell, Senior Counsel for the City of New York, wrote a letter to United States Magistrate Judge Joan M. Azrack in which he outlined some serious issues regarding is Raza et al v. City of New York et al.

Regarding Plaintiff Masjid At Taqwa

The NYPD’s investigation of certain individuals associated with Plaintiff Masjid At Taqwa was based upon information about their lengthy history of suspected criminal activity, some of it terroristic in nature.  This information includes but is not limited to: illegal weapons trafficking by members of the mosque’s security team and the mosque caretaker both within the mosque and at the store adjacent; illegal weapons trafficking by certain attendees of the mosque; allegations that the mosque raî a “gun club”; and allegations that the assistant Imam had earmarked portions of over $200,000 raised in the mosque to a number of US Government-designated terrorist organizations. 

Certain individuals associated with Masjid At Taqwa have historical ties to terrorism.  The mosque’s Imam, Siraj Wahhaj, was named by the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York as an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to bomb a number of New York City landmarks in the mid-1990s (the “Landmarks Plot”).  Omar Abdel Rahman, known as the “Blind Sheikh,” who is serving a life sentence in federal prison for his role in the Landmarks Plot, lectured at Masjid At Taqwa.  Wahhaj testified as a character witness for Abdel Rahman during Abdel Rahman’s terrorism trial.  V/ahhaj also testified as a character witness for Clement Hampton El, a Masjid At Taqwa attendee who was convicted as one of the Blind Sheikh’s co-conspirators in the Landmarks Plot.  Members of the mosque’s security team have instructed individuals on how to disarm police officers and have led martial arts classes involving individuals convicted on terrorism charges.  Since at least 2003, Masjid At Taqwa members have participated in and sponsored paintball exercises and survival training outside New York City, activities which have been carried out for training purposes by violent extremists in multiple terrorism cases in the United States and abroad-such as the “Virginia Jihad” case, the Fort Dix plot, the 717 attacks in London, and the UK fertilizer bomb plot (“Operation Awakening”). On one of these outings, the leader of Masjid At Taqwa’s security team instructed the members of his paintball team to “form up, jihad assassins” and called them his ‘Jihad warriors”.  Farooque Ahmed, who is currently incarcerated after pleading guilty to terrorism charges in connection with a plot to bomb the Washington, DC metro, promoted and participated in at least one of these trips.

Mr. Farrell’s letter outlined many more public safety concerns related to this lawsuit.  Click here to read Mr. Farrell’s letter.

The Masjid At Taqwa  mosque is run by Imam Siraj Wahhaj who was the key note speaker in the Garland Texas Islamist rally on January 17, 2015 that called for the defeat of Islamophobia.

The Islamist lawsuit was assigned to United States District Judge Pamela K. Chen.  The case was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Joan M. Azrack.

Clarion Project National Security Analyst Ryan Mauro talks to Bill O’Reilly about five Islamist radical groups in America: Muslims of the Americas; Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center; the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA); Masjid at-Taqwa led by Siraj Wahhaj and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
