TCPJ Newsletter #179 – If They Believe in Jesus, Why Do They Denigrate Christians?

rs on jesus copy

When Islamists like former ACO (American Center for Outreach) director Remziya Suleyman tells you how she also reveres Jesus, most apologist Christians (especially those Family of Abraham fanatics) breathe the interfaith “they are just like us” sigh of relief.

The Muslim Brotherhood also “loves Jesus

Last year, the MSA (Muslim Students Association) at East Tennessee State University put on a program called “Jesus in Islam”:

“We did a couple of lectures on campus last year,” Nimer [MSA President], said. “One was ‘Jesus in Islam.’ We talked about the misconceptions people have because a lot of people think we don’t believe in Jesus. We do, we love him, we respect him and we follow his teachings.”

Did the MSA read where the Quran says we are all supposedly Muslims which is why they refer to converts as “reverts”? According to the Quran, “Esa,” is Jesus’ real name because Jesus was a Muslim, he was not crucified and did not die on the cross but instead, ascended to Allah and anyone claiming otherwise is a liar, so when Jesus returns, he will “be a witness against Jews and Christians for believing in his death.” (4:157-159)

Did the MSA inform attendees that the hadith (traditions and sayings of Muhammad) say that when Jesus comes back, he goes on a pilgrimage to Mecca, he breaks the cross, kills the pig, does away with the “jizyah” (tax on Jews and Christians) and helps destroy Christianity once and for all?

“He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam.”

A Nashville Islamist tells Christians the truth if they will only hear it

In 1999 Awadh Binhazim, former Austin CAIR chapter leader and former board member at the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN), proselytized Islam in Nashville through his Olive Tree Education project. Among Islamists operating in Tennessee, he was one of the least deceptive. While serving as the Vanderbilt Muslim chaplain, he admitted that Islam commands death for homosexuality, that Islam is not a matter of personal opinion but whatever Allah (as delivered by Mohammed) decreed. He lectured Islam’s supremacist belief regarding what Muslims believe about the Gospel:

“When Muslims say they believe in the Ingil, the Gospel and they believe in the Torah, and they believe in the Psalms, they qualify. They believe that there has been a change in the text of the Torah and the Gospel. Therefore, originality was lost…Authenticity was lost. And Muslis regard this to be a deliberate change by corrupt priests of the time. They distorted the word of God and eliminated the original Hebrew and Aramaic versions of their scriptures.”

Binhazim also publicized the writings by al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki and senior Muslim Brotherhood leader and terrorism financing unindicted co-conspirator Jamal Badawi through his Olive Tree Education website:

Daoud Abudiab, founder of the Tennessee Faith and Culture Center which will be hosting an Islamophobia conference in September, partnered in dawa (proselytizing) with Binhazim.

Knoxville’s Anoor Academy textbook also teaches about Christians

Binhazim’s belief in the supremacy of Islam is also reflected in the textbook “What Islam Is All About” used at the private Islamic school in Knoxville. The textbook teaches the students this about Christians:

p.187 – “So, although the Christians and Jews may make a big noise about following Prophet Ibrahim, in fact, neither of them do.  Prophet Ibrahim fulfilled Allah’s commands, the Jews don’t even follow half of what their corrupted books say.  The Christians don’t follow anything except what their philosophers and priests make up from time to time.”

p.188 – “Prophet Ibrahim told people to do good and he forbade the wrong.  Many ‘religious’ and ‘non-religious’ Jews and Christians lead such decadent and immoral lives that lying, alcohol, nudity, pronography, racism, foul language, pre-marital sex, homosexuality and everything else are accepted in their society, churches and synagogues.  Just turn on the television in any Jewish or Christian community and see what’s ‘normal.’”

Quoting passages from the Quran, page 282 mocks Christians saying, “[w]hat does Allah say about all this nonsense that the Christian religion teaches?” and claims that Paul’s doctrines are false.

Other pages in the textbook are devoted to convincing the students that it’s not a good idea to have Christian friends but if for some reason they do only become friends to fulfill the duty to convert them to Islam.

************

ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America), another Muslim Brotherhood organization, uses “we love Jesus” for their dawa but conceals that the Quran says Muhammad revealed the Ingil (Gospel) to “Esa” (Jesus) because he was a Muslim. Exactly what these kids are being taught:

we love jesus signs copy

On Friday, July 24, 2015, when police in Chattanooga were escorting the funeral procession for Marine Staff Sgt. David Wyatt to the Chattanooga National Cemetery, some Baptists and their children attended prayers at the the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga, the jihad murderer’s mosque, to “…show them that we love them.”

The Christian women, who attended and brought their daughters, all wore headscarves. They “…asked that their church not be identified because not everyone was in agreement with them visiting, said they were struck by how similar the service was to the Christian messages they are used to hearing.”

The imam didn’t talk about the murders but for the benefit of a dawa opportunity did talk about the basics of Islam. This guy knows ignorant dhimmi Christians when he sees them.


Newsletter #166 – How the Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (part 4 of 8)

Right under our nose – the Muslim Brotherhood Affiliates and Allies in Tennessee

MSA (Muslim Students Association)

Chapters are listed at the following Tennessee colleges and universities: UT Knoxville, UT Martin, UT Chattanooga, University of Memphis, ETSU, MTSU, TSU, Tennessee Tech, Nashville State, Rhodes College, Vanderbilt, Sewanee and even MLK magnet high school in Nashville.

Should public money be used to fund these Muslim Brotherhood MSAs?

IIIT (International Institute for Islamic Thought)

The IIIT not only seeks to influence higher education, but also teachers and textbooks. They published textbooks written by Susan Douglas, a “principal researcher and writer” for the Council on Islamic Education (CIE) and on the editorial board for ISNA’s publication “Islamic Horizons.”

Douglass is most noted for drafting standards for teaching about religion in public schools; she co-authored the “Teacher’s Guide to Religion in the Public Schools” which has been adopted and published by the Freedom Forum in Nashville. Douglas trains teachers how to teach about Islam using curriculum guides she creates. CIE influences textbooks by helping to write state standards.

CIE is credited with influencing textbook publishers to omit “anything that would enable students to understand conflicts between Islamic fundamentalism and Western liberalism.” In 1992 CIE sponsored an “Islam in textbooks conference” for publishing company representatives and their writers which according to the CIE website reported that this “marked the beginning of a sustained relationship between CIE and K-12 publishers.”

The same funders that helped establish CIE also helped establish CAIR and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

The Muslim Brotherhood affiliates are so embedded in our educational institutions that Dr. Ron Messier, former professor at Vanderbilt University and now MTSU Director of International Outreach, spoke at IIIT in 2011.

Messier copy

His co-panelist Yaqub Mirza was publicly linked to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other questionable involvement with al-Qaeda financiers. His other co-panelist, Louay Safi was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the terrorism trial of Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s, just deported, Sami al-Arian.

In 2012, two of IIIT’s leaders posted a picture of themselves at a meeting with then President of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi. The IIIT website (picture now removed) says that Morsi, “welcomed the participation of IIIT in the reform [sic] of higher education in Egypt.”

Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN)

The warranty deed shows that ICN shares a P.O. Box address with the unindicted co-conspirator ISNA.

ICN deed

 

ICN

Believing that their numbers were sufficient to start impacting the community, the ICN’s March 1998 newsletter tells Nashville’s Muslims that “[t]he time is right for us to reach beyond the boundaries of the Masjid, to the fullest extent possible, and attempt to establish Islamic principles into the society where our children will be raised. We must attempt to influence the future direction of this society….” (emphasis added)

The same newsletter also solicited money for the Holy Land Foundation.

Before leaving the ICN to form another mosque, former CAIR chapter leader Awadh Binhazim was on the ICN board from 1999 – 2007. Binhazim conducted his dawa (proselytizing) through his Olive Tree Education project which promoted on-line writings by al-Qaeda’s Anwar Awlaki. Binhazim worked through the MSA at Tennessee State University (TSU), and served as a self-appointed Muslim chaplain at Vanderbilt University. During his tenure in this position, he publicly admitted that Islamic law mandates capital punishment for homosexuality and that “as a Muslim he does not have a choice of whether to accept or reject what Islam teaches.”

Excerpts from some of Binhazim’s lectures are included in the “Losing Our Sons” documentary.

“Losing Our Sons” documents the radicalization of Memphis native Carlos Bledsoe who attended TSU and the ICN. He converted to Islam, taking the same name as the ICN imam, Abdulhakim Mohammed who is believed to have been mentor. Carlos went to Yemen to supposedly teach English at a school. It was discovered that Carlos attended a Yemeni school. Carlos returned to the U.S. as a jihadi who killed Pvt. Andrew Long at the Little Rock Army Recruiting Center.

Awadh Binhazim, Abdulhakim Mohammed, Mohammed Ahmed

Awadh Binhazim                               Abdulhakim Mohammed                                Mohammed Ahmed

Abdulhakim Mohammed was the imam at ICN from 1999-2007. Abdulhakim Mohammed was born in Yemen but spent much of his early childhood in Detroit, Michigan.   He spent approximately eight years at the University of Madinah in Saudi Arabia, then returned to Yemen to work managing Islamic schools and other educational programs.

Mohammed was the imam at the Islamic Center in Ann Arbor and later at the radical Brooklyn Al Farooq mosque. Al-Farooq was called the “al-Qaeda mosque” because in the 1980’s and 90’s it served as a conduit for al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. This is also the mosque attended by the “blind sheik” who was convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Mohammed helped ICN set up its private Islamic school, the Nashville International Academy.

He left the ICN suddenly in 2007 and went to Texas. After Nashville where for a short time, was the imam at Masjid Al-Hedayah in Ft. Worth, Texas. Right before that he and Awadh Binhazim rejoined their efforts and launched an outreach program “Muslimnama.”

In 2008, Imam Mohammed joined Mohamed Elibiary’s Freedom & Justice Foundation Board. Elibiary has a long and public relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. He admits having a relationship with an official of the Holy Land Foundation who is now in jail for helping to finance HAMAS. Elibiary also served on the Board of CAIR’s Dallas-Fort Worth chapter.

elibiary copy

Paul “Iesa” Galloway also has a close relationship with Elibiary and also served on Elibiary’s board. Galloway arrived in Nashville during the summer of 2014 to take over as Director of Tennessee’s American Center for Outreach (ACO). Galloway was the founder and Executive Director of CAIR’s office in Houston, and still serves on MuslimMatters.org leadership team with Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi.

Galloway,Paul-fb

The next imam to lead ICN was Mohamed Ahmed, a graduate of the preeminent teaching center of sharia law, Al Azhar University, in Egypt. In 2011 Imam Ahmed gave a lecture in Nashville in which he defended the Egyptian police forced virginity tests performed on the female protesters in Tahrir Square. (starting about minute 37:03)

The ICN’s ad in the January/February 2015 Islamic Horizons (Muslim Brotherhood ISNA’s magazine) indicates that they are still looking for a new imam.

Masjid al-Salam Mosque, aka, The Muslim Society of Memphis

The mosque’s warranty deed shows that the property is owned by NAIT (North American Islamic Trust), another Muslim Brotherhood front group named in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood memorandum. NAIT is an affiliate of Muslim Brotherhood ISNA. NAIT also owns many other properties in Memphis along with properties surrounding the property that contains the mosque.

“NAIT is reportedly largely funded from overseas, particularly from Saudi Arabia.” NAIT is reported to hold the deeds to well over 25% of the mosques and Islamic centers in the U.S. including the Bridgeview mosque near Chicago. The Chicago Tribune did an expose about how this mosque became dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, including a prayer leader partially paid for by the Saudi government.

The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro (ICM)

Even though the warranty deed of the ICM does not show a Muslim Brotherhood owner, the mosque in words and actions, reflects the Brotherhood’s ideology.

In December 2008, Israel launched “Operation Cast Lead” against HAMAS to stop the increased rocket attacks on Israeli civilians. In downtown Murfreesboro, members from the ICM led by Imam Osama Bahloul, protested the “war on Gaza” in support of the terrorist group HAMAS. Signage used the “Palestine will be free” slogan that reflects the HAMAS and Muslim Brotherhood goal that there would be no Israel between the Jordan River and Mediterranean, that the State of Israel would cease to exist.

bahloul protest copy

Prior to construction of the new mosque, it was discovered that the ICM was using and distributing literature published by Brotherhood front groups and recommending literature written by individuals openly affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

FotorCreated copy

For example, MAS, the Muslim American Society was acknowledged in 2004 by its Secretary-General that MAS had been founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Institute of Islamic Information and Education is part of ISNA (green brochure). Ahmad Sakr of The Foundation for Islamic Knowledge was a founding member of the MSA, and a Board member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s North American Islamic Trust (NAIT.) He also served as the first director and representative of the Muslim World League (MWL), a group that has reportedly been involved in the funding of Hamas, al-Qaeda and other terrorist outfits.

It was also reported that the mosque’s reading list posted on its now scrubbed website, recommended works by known Muslim Brotherhood leaders including Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Jamal Badawi and Taha Jabir.

At around this same time, research exposed ICM board member Mosaad Rawash’s public support for HAMAS and participation at a MAS (Muslim American Society) summer camp. His now deleted MySpace page (scrubbed for internet archive as well), had a picture honoring HAMAS co-founders Ahmed Yassin, and Abdul Aziz al-Rantissi over a crowd of armed Hamas militants.

After a short suspension, the ICM cleared Rawash and reinstated him to the board.

Since occupying its new building, CAIR director Nihad Awad has been a welcomed visitor and senior Muslim Brotherhood leader, HLF unindicted coconspirator, Jamal Badawi was invited as part of an interfaith program. Badawi is listed in the Explanatory Memo and in the Brotherhood telephone directory also introduced into evidence during the HLF prosecution.

Ossama Bahloul has been the imam since 2008. He is a graduate of Al Azhar University in Cairo, the center for Sunni Salafism. Bahloul has a degree in Dawa (prosletyzing for Islam.) His thesis was the establishment of a Dawa curriculum aimed at secularists, atheists, Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Al Azhar is credited with starting the Islamist movement with training from Islamic radicals and closely tied to Muslim Brotherhood and stands for the propagation of Islam and Sharia as a complete way of life.

Newsletter #162 – The Governor and Mrs. Haslam Promote a “Healthy Tennessee”….and Muslims

Since taking office Governor Haslam has tried different ways to leave his mark on improving the health of Tennesseans. He even tried to use his Medicaid Expansion plan “Insure Tennessee” to pay people to get healthy. Haslam said he could use his own healthcare plans to “fundamentally chang[e] health care in Tennessee.” His “Healthy Incentives Plan” envisioned letting people “earn more money” of the free money by taking specific actions to get healthy. Except Medicaid Expansion became another of Haslam’s “reforms” that failed. Now Governor Haslam has launched his “Healthier Tennessee Communities” initiative, “a coordinated initiative supporting physical activity, healthy eating and tobacco abstinence at the local level.” The Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness will focus on individuals, workplaces and faith congregations. In addition, the Tennessee Department of Health through their Office of Minority Health and Disparities Elimination, works with faith communities and trains congregants to become “certified Health Ambassadors” who will help make Tennesseans aware of how to lead healthier lifestyles. Being the picture of an “overabundance” of health herself, Nashville resident, Aisha Lbhalla, a member of the Islamic Center of Tennessee (ICTN), has been selected to be one of these Health Ambassadors. lbhalla and crissy copy Let’s take a close look at Aisha’s mosque. Individuals involved in establishing the ICTN in 2010, included Awadh Binhazim (Secretary of the ICTN Board) who had previously served on the Board at the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN) during the time when Abdulhakim Mohamed was the imam there. He had the dubious privilege of being the imam at the al-Qaeda al-Farooq mosque in Brooklyn, New York, the same mosque attended by the “blind sheik” convicted for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Before splitting from the ICN to form the ICTN mosque, Binhazim (a CAIR chapter leader when he lived in Texas), conducted his dawa (proselytizing) through his Olive Tree Education project promoting on-line writings by al-Qaeda’s Anwar Awlaki. During this time he was the self-appointed Muslim “chaplain” at Vanderbilt University. It was in this position that he publicly admitted at a student forum, that Islamic law mandates capital punishment for homosexuality and that “as a Muslim he does not have a choice of whether to accept or reject what Islam teaches.” Did Nashville Mayor Karl Dean know Aisha’s background when he appointed her to the Metro Human Relations Commission? Is he trying to eradicate Nashville’s radical Islamophobia?   lbhalla copy So Who is Aisha Lbhalla? Various websites align an Aisha Teshara Washington with an Aisha Teshara Lbhalla who lives in Antioch, Tennessee. Aisha Teshara Washington at one time lived at 147 Dreamwood Lane in Dover, Tennessee. This address corresponds to an area in Dover referred to as “Islamville,” the Muslims of America (MoA) compound. MoA aka Jammat ul-Fuqra is a movement founded by the infamous Pakistani Sheik Mubarik Ali Gilani and is described as a “Sunni militant group.” An Aisha Teshara Washington is also listed as having lived in Maryland. Aisha Washington is associated with and/or operated a business in Maryland called “Loving Home Care.” This business ran into some difficulties with the Maryland State Department of Labor Licensing and was sued for failing to pay taxes. The suit was settled for over $8,000. lbhalla judgment   Aisha Lbhalla is associated with and/or operates a business in Antioch, Tennessee called “Loving Home Care” although no business by this name was found in the Tennessee Secretary of State’s database. The website for “Loving Home Care” lists the Main Office contact in Antioch and a contact number for a Maryland, D.C. Virginia office. Wonder why? lbhalla business copy                       lbhalla business 2 copy                         Like a growing number of sharia observant Muslims, Lbhalla and her husband live in a Habitat for Humanity home located in the Edison Park development in Antioch, Tennessee. The Habitat for Humanity program, a Christian ministry, has ironically become a convenient vehicle to impose the restrictions of sharia finance law to a part of the U.S. housing market. Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Sheikh al-Qaradawi, describes sharia compliant finance as “jihad with money.” Lbhalla serves on the Executive Committee of the Nashville chapter of the Religion Communicators Council’s (RCC), which is led by Scientologist Brian Fessler. The RCC leadership has heavy representation by the United Methodist Church (UMC) which makes it highly unlikely that they would find Lbhalla’s anti-Israel tweets problematic for a group that is supposed to be an interfaith association. lbhalla on israel copy

********************

The first imam at Lbhalla’s mosque was AbdulRahman ibn Esa Chao. He was trained at the Islamic University of Medinah, Saudi Arabia, an institution highly associated with the Salafi branch of Sunni Islam. Salafists have been described as trying to return Sunni Muslims to the “practice of the pious ancestors, i.e., the first three generations of Muslims.” That is, they seek to practice Islam in its most original, purest and “authentic” form without relying on cultural practices or clerical interpretations. Does this mean that reformation or moderation is out of the question? Probably so. Too bad our elected leadership is so gullible.

Newsletter #80 – Nashville’s Radical Mosque Hosts Radical Speaker Tonight

BNgQEHSCAAAdiXm.jpg-largeSiraj 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.

Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi who calls “Christians filthy” and here delivers the same message as Wahhaj:

qadhi political engagement 3 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.


Newsletter #78 – How TN Muslims Can Have Successful Community Outreach

Bill Hobbs (rated as a Tennessean newspaper “top commenter), attended the Manchester June 4th TN American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) program and posted this comment in response to Tennessean reporter Nicole Young’s account:

“AMAC – the American Muslim Advisory Council, which sponsored the event – made a stupid PR mistake by inviting the federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, to be part of their “get to know us muslims” event, since that meant the audience would assume that the muslims agreed with Killian that anti-Islamic speech could be a crime. I spoke with two Muslims afterward – one of the speakers, and one, a young Somali man – and both agreed that it is not a crime to say something offensive to someone of any religion.

Regardless, here are some suggestions for AMAC’s next event to avoid another failed effort:

-Leave American Center for Outreach (ACO) Remziya Suleyman home.  She continues to call anyone that disagrees with her, a “hater” so it’s hard to make friends with her.  Everyone knows that her Kurdish identity is her top priority putting her at odds with mainstream Muslims that don’t seem to care too much about the Kurds.

-Leave Drost Kokoye from TIRRC at home also.  Typically at a loss for objective data on issues, she follows Suleyman’s lead for sophmoric name-calling leaving her no credibility on any issue involving Muslims or illegal immigrants (what she calls the “i” word).

-Forget generalized condemnation about terrorism.  Be prepared to explain why “Soldier of Allah” Nidal Hassan and Tennessean Carlos Bledsoe really didn’t commit jihad.  Maybe consider publicly denouncing Hamas, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood.

-Rethink showing any part of the propaganda film “Welcome to Shelbyville” and be prepared instead to explain why it’s the receiving communities that have to change.

-Leave your government watchdogs at home, especially ones who want to abuse the Constitution and willingly dumb down those responsible for our national security.

-People understand what the OIC is trying to do with Res. 16/18 so you might consider explaining why you believe saying something offensive to Muslims or insulting to Islam should be a crime under the First Amendment’s protection for free speech.  People also remember what happened to cartoonist Molly Norris when she suggested an “Everybody draw Mohammed Day”

-Understand that your audience understands and/or has watched the following and be prepared to address questions about:

-Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi who calls Christians, among other things, “filthy” and here

 

-Islamic Center of Tennessee Imam Abdullah Al Ansari who said:

“He [Allah] told us to fight the Jews and Christians. Fight them until they give jizya.  They give this protective tax from their hands and they are humiliated and subdued.  If Islam, true Islam and true Muslims do not rule there will never be justice.  Don’t think that Barak Obama can give you justice.  No one can give you justice except a just Muslim ruler”.

-Islamic Center of Nashville Imam Mohammed Ahmed who told attendees at the June 2011 meeting of the Religion Communicators Council that he supported the Egyptian police forced virginity tests performed on female protesters in Tahrir Square.  The imam explained:  “Why? It’s a very interesting fact that the police giving you a heads up, ‘oh, those people are not virgin’.  That’s mean they are not good people”.

-Awadh Binhazim, former vice president of the Islamic Center of Nashville, founding member of the Islamic Center of TN, co-founder of the Olive Tree Foundation, former CAIR chapter president, chaplain of the MSA at Vanderbilt University and proponent of interfaith dialogue with Jews and Christians can be seen in the “Losing Our Sons” video speaking to Muslims behind closed doors asserting that Torah and the Gospel have been twisted by “the corrupt rabbis and priests of the time” who “distorted the word of God.”

-why AMJA, the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America says Muslims shouldn’t condone or endorse non-Muslims celebrating non-Muslim holidays such as wishing a celebrating Christian neighbor “Merry Christmas”

-why Islamic leaders bring speakers to radicalize Tennesssee Muslim students, such as Zaid Shakir who tells his audiences that he hopes  “to see the “day in which America is a Muslim country ruled by Islamic law”, or Siraj Wahhaj who claims that “Islam is the solution” and preaches that the U.S. should and will become an Islamic state because “Islam is better than democracy.” Wahhaj will be speaking at the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Center of Tennessee during the first week of Ramadan.

-Muslims rebuke Jews and Christians in their daily prayers.

-you might consider apologizing for spreading untruths about the anti-terrorism material support bill that was intended to protect everyone in the state, including Muslims from the very people you claim are hijacking your religion

In fact, you should consider dropping the victimhood theme or better yet, look Andy Long’s father in the eye and tell him you’re the victim.  No dare you.  Sorry.

Understand that as long as you stay tied to groups like CAIR, ISNA and any other unindicted co-conspirator and Muslim Brotherhood front group, your campaign in Tennessee will be resisted.

The only way to be credible is to be honest.  Try it.


Newsletter #71 – Are Tennessee’s Islamists Any Different from the Ones “over there”?


Political shariah foot soldiers like Charles Haynes and Remziya Suleyman promote the “American Muslim” propaganda by claiming that Muslims in the US are somehow different from Muslims “over there”.  They do not explain, however, whether “over there” includes other Western nations such as England and France.

Muslims “over there” like those in England and France have made it very clear that they want more not less shariah in their lives, they want shariah no-go zones and they want to ultimately have these countries ruled by shariah law, here and here.

We have yet to hear Ms. Suleyman or any of the other Islamists in Tennessee deny their desire to advance political shariah into the public square.  Who knows, maybe a “Halal hamburger Day” could be the start of eliminating all pork products from school cafeterias and  prisons.

This past June, Ms. Suleyman’s Muslim community elders were satisfied with the amended 20011 anti-terrorism bill but she told them that her political activism demanded she move forward, that it was not about religion anymore.  She said she was adamant about continuing political opposition.

With this rallying cry, Ms. Suleyman works to radicalize the Islamists of her generation.  Has Ms. Suleyman read the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Memorandum?  If she did, would she still be able to deny that she and her fellow Tennessee Islamists, are actually more like the “Muslims over there” than not?

The Islamic Center of Tennessee (ICT) models Muslim Brotherhood socialism

One of Nashville’s Muslim Brotherhood mainstays, Awadh Binhazim (featured in the  “Losing Our Sons” documentary and Newsletters 11,  12, and 13), has honestly expressed Islam’s disdain for our First Amendment right to freedom of speech and Islam’s capital punishment for homosexuality.

A publicly recognized spokesman for the Islamice Center of Tennessee (ICT), Binhazim and Ms. Suleyman have served on speakers’ panels together.  They both also share a working relationship with CAIR.

Binhazim served as the CAIR[1] Austin chapter president when he lived in Texas.[2]  He’s now with the ICT, a mosque that is readying to emulate what the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt did to make “Islam the solution.”  By providing social services “like health care and education to the 40% of Egyptians who live under the poverty line” (CNN, “The Muslim Brotherhood Comes to America”), the Muslim Brotherhood was able to translate their ideology into political reality.

The ICT will start its social services endeavors with health care and legal services.  On Febrary 8, 2013, Mohammad Ali Syed of the Syed Law Firm offered the following:

“Free legal advice seminar” at the ICT:   (“Helping the Muslim Community of Nashville and Middle Tennessee in legal and business matters.  Immigration, litigation, insurance, real estate, contracts, business law and general practice. If you need an advocate/counselor for your legal matters, please call me.  Please call with any questions or send an email.”)

 On February 10, 2013, the ICT held a “Medical Clinic Proposal Presentation”:

“As you may already know we are conducting a study for the purpose of establishing a permanent medical clinic in the back of the ICT building. We have been in contact with Umma Clinic in California and they have sent us detailed presentation about how to set up such a clinic.

Expertise needed:

Medical, legal, Public relations, business management & financial planning, fundraising / grants, IT, architecture & interior design, and religious advice.”

This is the same political template that the Muslim Brotherhood has used in the mid-east.

The Muslim Brotherhood has come to power in Egypt, bringing with it imposition of fundamentalist shariah law including Islam’s blasphemy laws.  The result for Coptic Christians under these laws has literally been deadly.  While the mainstream media has failed to report the destruction of churches and religious persecution, these incidents have been documented and are being reported by alternative media.  Morsi’s virulent Islamic doctrine driven anti-Semitism has also been exposed. (See Newsletter #60).

Attempting to counteract the harsh reality of a Muslim Brotherhood ruled Egypt and to “raise the morale of the Eygptian people”, the government launched its new social services campaign called “Mother Egypt – Your Children Matter” providing medical assistance and clean drinking water to towns and villages.

************

Free or low-cost social services for the every -day Egyptian has brought success in the polls for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  If the ICT sticks with it long enough, the same might be true for the Muslim Brotherhood in Antioch and Davidson County.
