Remziya Suleyman brings Muslim Brotherhood Hamas-CAIR to Nashville to meet Mayor Karl Dean
American Center for Outreach (ACO) Director Remziya Suleyman brings the Muslim Brotherhood message directly to the youth she trains. Suleyman provides youth education about political activism and advancing the objectives of political sharia, ie, the Muslim Brotherhood plan.
“Muslim Brotherhood” is as much about an ideological plan for the U.S. as it is about individual relationships and the organizations that have come together to work toward these goals.
On Saturday, April 6, 2013, Suleyman spoke at the birthplace of the U.S, Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She was part of the Spring Camp 2013. The MSA is a Muslim Brotherhood off-shoot for colleges and universities across the country that have become the training ground for Suleyman’s stealth jihad generation.
Muslim Youth Network of TN
Closer to home Suleyman is bringing the message of political sharia to Tennessee’s Muslim youth. Organized in 2012 and based in Nashville, the Muslim Youth Network of TN (MYNT), is a mosque/college collaboration to provide programming, mentorship and training to the younger members of the TN ummah and partners to feed the university MSAs.
MYNT board members identified as of this writing are Fardin Mohammadi who is the current president of the Vanderbilt MSA, Drost Kokoye who until recently was the Multicultural Organizer for the TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) and is an American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) Board member, and Kasar Abdullah, an ACO board member and sister to Suleyman’s administrative assistant, Jihan Abdullah.
A stated goal of MYNT is to help develop future Islamic leaders. Two recent MYNT events reveal just what kind of leadership advisor- Suleyman is trying to mold.
The day started with Hannah Cornfield, ACO’s “Policy Fellow” and daughter of TN ACLU’s director, teaching about the civic process.
On June 27, MYNT’s “Muslim Advocacy Day” played out in Nashville’s city offices. There was a private tour of Mayor Dean’s offices, a presentation by a city council member, and a mock debate in the council chambers – all designed to feed the narrative that youth must become politically empowered.
Dawud Walid – Islamic militant and CAIR extremist
Dawud Walid has been the Executive Director at the Michigan CAIR chapter since 2005 so he was there when CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2007. CAIR’s unindicted co-conspirator status resulted because its parent organization, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), was proven to be a front organization for Hamas. In 2009 a federal judge confirmed the “ample” evidentiary link between Hamas and CAIR. CAIR is also under suspicion of an international money laundering scheme.

Walid serves as an imam at Masjid Wali Muhammad, a Detroit-area mosque whose roots were in the black separatist Nation of Islam.
Walid is also a member of the North American Imams Federation (NAIF) whose director, Omar Shahin, was one of the six imams that staged an airport controversy in Minnesota and was a fundraiser for two Hamas-related charities, Kindhearts and the Holy Land Foundation. These charities have been shut down by the U.S. government.
Walid has been recorded telling Muslim youth the following:
Consistent with CAIR’s anti-FBI messaging, Walid lectures to students that he believes that FBI agents are waiting to set them up through informants, suggesting that they should feel threatened by law enforcement: “you have agent provocateurs and people who are acting as informants that are trying to further their careers, to get out of trouble, to get arrests, try to set people up, and guess the No.1 group of people who are targeted by these FBI agent provocateurs? Does anyone have a guess? Muslims.”
He casually tells students about al-Shabaab and almost questions whether it should be designated as a terrorist entity. Al Shabaab is the group that is responsible for the recent terrorist attacks on non-Muslims in a mall in Nairobi, Kenya.
If it’s a Muslim being arrested it can only be entrapment or wrongful targeting by law enforcement:
For example, as reported by IPT:
In 2009 he publicly defended the “Liberty City Seven” (see p.12), and characterized it as entrapment of Muslims. Five of the seven were eventually convicted of agreeing to provide material support to Al-Qaeda
In 2010 speeches, he “accused FBI ‘agent provocateurs’ of taking advantage of ‘emotional people,’ ‘getting them excited,’ ‘giving them plots,’ and then ‘after they push the people,’ saying ‘gotcha’”. These remarks followed the arrest of the Oregon Christmas-tree lighting bomb plot and the Maryland recruiting center bomb plot.
Without supporting facts, he challenged the DOJ report that showed no FBI wrongdoing in the attempted arrest and eventual shooting of Luqman Abdullah
More on Walid and the September 2010 FBI raids and the “Bronx Four” here
Walid jumped on the hate crime bandwagon regarding the 2012 bludgeoning death of the San Diego Iraqi mother, which turned out to be death by domestic violence.
Walid is an anti-Semite who demonizes Jews as the source of Black Muslims’ problems:
Walid’s May 2012 sermon at the Islamic Organization of North America mosque asked, “Who are those who incurred the wrath of Allah? They are the Jews, they are the Jews”
In his 2012 speech at the Islamic Center of Detroit he confirmed that those who earned Allah’s wrath are the Jews and those who go astray are the Christians which is the Al-Fatihah prayed by Muslims multiple times a day.
He has also been recorded: “One of the greatest social ills facing America today is Islamophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry. And if you trace the organizations and the main advocates and activists in Islamophobia in America, you will see that all those organizations are pro-Israeli occupation organizations and activists.” And,
“So this is why you see the Islamophobia network trying to gin up negative information about Muslims and Islam. This is a direct connection to the occupation of Palestine. It is a direct connection. And [it is] because the strongest Israeli lobby in the world is in America, because America is the sole patron of Israel.”
Parroting other CAIR leaders, Walid says Hamas deserves to participate in all peace talks because it “represents the elected government of the Palestinian people during a fair election.”
Dawud Walid’s visit was the second time Remziya Suleyman brought a CAIR representative to Tennessee. Does it matter to her that federal prosecution established “ample evidence” tying CAIR to Hamas and to the Muslim Brotherhood?
Does it matter to Suleyman that the individuals and organizations with which she regularly interfaces are deeply committed, connected and rooted in the Muslim Brotherhood plan for our country to replace the U.S. Constitution with sharia law? Deception? Intentional ignorance? Either way suggests that public officials, citizen activists and even her own community should start questioning her judgment and motives.
This year the Jewish observance of Kol Nidre (day of atonement for Jews) fell on the 40th anniversary of the Yom Kippur war, an Egyptian-Syrian offensive launched against Israel on one of the Jewish people’s holiest days. Despite suffering heavy casualties, Israel prevailed, much to the increased humiliation of the Arab countries.
Curiously, a Nashville rabbi did not choose to speak to his congregation about this stunning historical moment in his ancestral homeland’s history.
Instead, in Nashville, The Temple congregation listened to Rabbi Schiftan speak (starting at 1:36), about 1st Amendment rights, his experiences with anti-semitism in the United States (was he referring to Christian or Islamic anti-semitism?), and a planned congregational visit to the Murfreesboro Mosque, titled “A Sacred Journey of Understanding: from Belle Meade to Murfreesboro”. (high drama as reported in The Tennessean here).
It ‘s a shame that Rabbi Schiftan didn’t mention the pro-Israel resolution passed by the Tennessee legislature last year. Or the pro-Israel rally held by Nashville’s Christian friends at the state capitol last year. (wonder if he attended?)
He could have thought to mention the very recent demonstration held in downtown Nashville by Coptic Christians protesting the killing taking place now of their Christian brethren in Egypt. That seems pretty relevant to the 1st Amendment issue.
Rabbi Schiftan says he is going to use his mosque visit to have “honest dialogue.”
Before he goes, he might want to review why there was a Yom Kippur war. More contemporarily, he might want to read about why the Coptic Christians and Christians across the Middle East are being slaughtered in 2013. Chances are, “Hamas” and “Muslim Brotherhood” will be part of the answer. We get that he believes it is only a problem “over there” and a problem he would like to pretend has no relevance or implications here. Sorry rabbi, but there is nothing honest about that position.
A truly honest review of documented facts will in fact, lead him right back to the mosque he is planning to visit, and the mosque’s relationship with CAIR – the Council on American Islamic Relations whose director, Nihad Awad made sure to be present at the mosque’s opening.
Rabbi Schiftan can start with some of the documentary trial evidence:
- CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror financing prosecution in U.S. history.
- CAIR was so named because of their connectedness to Hamas
- prior to co-founding CAIR, executive director, Nihad Awad was the President of the Isalmic Association for Palestine (IAP), an organization named by the Muslim Brotherhood in their 1991 Strategic Plan for North America, as one of their organizations
- documentary evidence supports that the Islamic Association for Palestine was the Hamas propaganda arm in the U.S.
- Nihad Awad has stated unequivocally that he supports the Hamas movement (watch through very short video)
- in 2009 when CAIR tried to get its unindicted co-conspirator status removed, Judge Solis ruled that “ample evidence exists tying CAIR to Hamas”
For those going on the mosque trip, go with ALL the information. Be polite and respectful, but be knowledgeable. Let the Rabbi and media provide the propaganda.
This morning’s news confirmed that Al-Shabaab, a U.S. designated terrorist group, is responsible for the massacre of non-Muslims at a shopping mall in Kenya.
This past June, Remziya Suleyman, director of the American Center for Outreach and adviser and organizer of the Muslim Youth Network of Tennessee (MYNT), brought CAIR Director Dawud Walid for MYNT’s first summer retreat. He talked to students about the importance of political activism.
Organized in 2012 and based in Nashville, the Muslim Youth Network of TN (MYNT), is a mosque/college collaboration to provide programming, mentorship and training to Muslim youth. It helps Muslim high school students stay separate from their peers by offering “anti-prom” events and likely feeds the university Muslim Brotherhood MSAs as the kids move on to college. A stated goal of the MYNT is to help develop future Islamic leaders.
Dawud Walid has been the Executive Director at the Michigan CAIR chapter since 2005 so he was there when CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2007. CAIR’s unindicted co-conspirator status resulted because its parent organization, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), was proven to be a front organization for Hamas. In 2009 a federal judge confirmed the “ample” evidentiary link between Hamas and CAIR.
Dawud Walid has been recorded speaking to students in the past about Al-Shabaab. He casually tells students about al-Shabaab and almost questions whether it should be designated as a terrorist entity.
“Have you all heard of al-Shabaab? Shabaab literally means ‘youth’ in Arabic, as-Shabaab al-Muslimeen is a group in Somalia that’s been involved in a lot of fighting and our government calls them a terrorist organization.”
The same Al-Shabaab “over there” is present here in the United States.
Young Tennessee Muslims are being shaped to remain separate and apart from their peers. They are told that the only reason to interact with non-Muslim “friends” is to fulfill their religious duty of dawa (proselytizing Islam). They are filled with supremacist messages about the dhimmi status of non-Muslims in Islamic states.
- The MSA “pledge of allegiance” which was videotaped at a recent regional conference concludes with “I will fight against oppression. And I will die to establish Islam.”
- CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper stated in 2003 that if Muslims ever became a majority in the United States, they would likely seek to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law, which they deem superior to man-made law.
- CAIR’s co-founder Omar Ahmad was quoted in 1998 that “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Doesn’t it matter who is being brought to Tennessee to influence the next generation?
