Newsletter #80 – Nashville’s Radical Mosque Hosts Radical Speaker TonightPosted: July 12, 2013
Siraj Wahhaj – raised as a Baptist but converted to Islam under the leadership of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. He is the imam at the al-Taqwa mosque in New York. He preaches that the U.S. should and will become an Islamic state because “Islam is better than democracy.”
What does Wahhaj tell his audiences?
“Islam is better than democracy. Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what? It will happen.”
“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us,” he said in 1992.
“You don’t get involved in politics because it’s the American thing to do. You get involved in politics because politics are a weapon to use in the cause of Islam.” http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/popular-muslim-iman-working-towards-sharia-america
There is much more to read about Wahhaj at the Clarion Project.
As reported by USA Today, “Yasir Qadhi, who lectured at the Boston mosque in April 2009, has advocated replacing U.S. democracy with Islamic rule…”
Make no mistake, he has lots in common with radicalist Wahhaj.
