There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are top tier leaders in ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), one of the unindicted co-conspirator organizations named by the Muslim Brotherhood in its plan for the U.S.. This plan was exposed during the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing prosecution.
There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are individually named in that same Muslim Brotherhood plan, and Islamists who have served in executive positions with Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR and the MAS (Muslim American Society), both designated as terrorist organizations by the UAE.
CAIR’s executive director who visits Tennessee has publicly voiced his support for HAMAS. CAIR has inserted itself multiple times in Tennessee events, even trying to prevent Tennessee citizens from exercising First Amendment rights to free speech and free assembly. In 2013 CAIR’s Michigan director was brought to Nashville to train Muslim high school students in political activism. Currently CAIR has a de facto office in Nashville since its former CAIR-Houston director registered as a Tennessee lobbyist and is running the American Center for Outreach (ACO).
A former CAIR intern worked with the UT Knoxville MSA (Muslim Students Association) and was on the faculty of the private Islamic school in Knoxville. Another former CAIR chapter leader was the self-appointed Vanderbilt University Muslim chaplain who confirmed during a public event that he must abide by Islamic law that commands death for homosexuals.
Guest speakers known to be radical Islamists have been brought to Tennessee with messages like “Islam is better than democracy” and that under sharia law “the kafir [non-Muslims] won’t be equal with the Muslim.”
Deeds to some Tennessee mosques list Muslim Brotherhood front groups. Imams preaching inside the mosques are trained in Saudi Arabia where the strictest form of sharia law is practiced or are trained at Al-Azhar University in Egypt, which is credited with starting the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood movement, promoting Islam and sharia as a complete way of life.
Tennessee even has a mosque whose mortgage is held by an organization working on behalf of the Iranian government.
Tennessee is home to the leader of an Islamic organization which shares many attributes with the Holy Land Foundation that was shut down by the U.S. government for providing material support to HAMAS.
Our elected and appointed political leaders should be required to receive complete and factual information about the Muslim Brotherhood and its front groups operating in Tennessee because these groups represent the politics of Islam. These groups and individuals should be exposed.
Our citizens should also know these facts. Watch for the next seven installments in this series.
Important information that should be passed to your state legislators.
Former American Center for Outreach (ACO) director Remziya Suleyman was the lobbyist in our state legislature for Tennessee Islamists. She and her Civic Engagement Coordinator, Drost Kokoye believed they were “run[ning] Tennessee.”
They never did and certainly aren’t anymore!
What they did do though was bring Muslim Brotherhood CAIR to Tennessee and then have it become entrenched by turning the ACO over to Paul “Iesa” [Jesus] Galloway, a former Texas CAIR director.Paul “Iesa” Galloway is now the registered lobbyist for Tennessee’s Islamists.
The lobbyist registration form names Soyab Malani as ACO’s “CFO.” He is also an original organizer and board member of the Tennessee American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) which recently removed all board member names and the name of its Executive Director from their website. Why? Reorganizing? Concealing the identities of who is involved?
Who is Nadeem Siddiqi?
ACO’s “lobbyist supervisor” is board chair, Nadeem Siddiqi from Knoxville. Is this the same Nadeem Siddiqi named in a 2012 lawsuit for defrauding the government by submitting false Medicare and Medicaid bills?
Siddiqi is a former Board member of the Knoxville Annoor Mosque (also known as the Muslim Community of Knoxville). He is currently a board member of the Annoor Academy, a private Islamic school that uses a textbook teaching students that Christians and Jews are immoral and inferior to Muslims.
A “Siddiqi Lecture Series” at UTKnoxville, funded by Siddiqi Holdings of Knoxville, brought Sherman Abdul Hakeem Jackson to speak this year. Jackson sits on a “scholars council” formed by the International Institute on Islamic Thought (IIIT), one of the 29 “organization of our friends” claimed by the Muslim Brotherhood in its 1991 Explanatory Memorandum plan for North America.
Jackson has been a board member of several other Muslim Brotherhood organizations including the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA), North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA).
Jackson promotes Islamic supremacy and dominance. He says his primary commitment is to Allah, not America, and that “Muslims and Western worlds are in conflict and competition, and that only one can end up dominant. Put simply, he wants to replace Western culture with Muslim culture.”
Is it coincidence that ties to Muslim Brotherhood organizations and individuals keep appearing in our state?
Siddiqi and Galloway are a perfect match
Siddiqi and Galloway are both active in dawa (proselytizing Islam). Both purposefully align themselves with Muslim Brotherhood ideology, organizations and individuals.
Galloway, the new lobbyist and propagandist for Tennessee Muslims, started his public Muslim Brotherhood career by setting up and directing the Houston-CAIR office. CAIR, named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism prosecution, raised money and sent it to Hamas. In 2009 a federal judge confirmed that there was “ample evidence” tying CAIR to Hamas.
Galloway and political propaganda – a perfect combination for an Islamist lobbyist
Galloway has already established himself with the Tennessee media as a go-to PR voice for the Muslim community. In the short time he has been the ACO Director, he has editorialized the difference between violent Islamists and stealth political Islamists like himself and commented on a proposed “no-go zone” bill in the state legislature.
Galloway is also busy promoting himself as a states’ rights conservative 10th Amendment Republican just like his Muslim Brotherhood-supporting mentor Mohamed Elibiary, who left his Department of Homeland Security position to “help reform the conservative movement” in advance of the 2016 election.
Will you allow your state legislator to be deceived by Galloway and his propaganda? What about Galloway’s goal to obscure subtle changes taking place in Tennessee as more mosques are being built and the size of Muslim communities grow? Galloway’s aggressive marketing of the “religion of peace” is designed to help “settle” Islam and the Islamic movement within the United States” so that as CAIR’s co-founder said in 1998:
“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.”
Is Nashville “Music City, USA” or “Little Kurdistan” – you decide.
Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said the needs of “new Americans” were a top priority, so he established the city’s Office of New Americans:
“The number of foreign-born residents in Nashville has more than doubled over the past decade. And today our city is the proud home of the nation’s largest Kurdish population, as well as growing enclaves of immigrants from Somalia, Sudan and all over the world.”
Mayor Dean refers to the two out of three groups that have brought political Islam and sharia law to Nashville; Kurds and Somalis. They have been brought to Nashville through the federal refugee resettlement program.
Immigrants – turned – advocates talk about “Nashville for all of us” but instead choose to live like the Mayor’s office said, in enclaves. They complain about being treated as “the other,” but through self-segregation, guard against assimilating into and adapting to the American culture.
When they self-segregate its called preserving their culture. When native-born Tennesseans self-segregate, it’s called racism.
Kurdish Islamist agitator Remziya Suleyman whines endlessly about being thought of as “the other.” However, she was quick to appropriate Nashville’s generous spirit for her community’s political purposes, calling it “Little Kurdistan.”
Drost Kokoye, an activist Nashville’s Kurdish activist community, is known for her Jew-hatred and pro-Hamas politics. She worked in Suleyman’s organization, TIRRC, the ACLU and helped establish and is a board member of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC). She’s now at UTKnoxville where she agitates with the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and has led pro-Ferguson rallies.
Ironically, Drost’s mother is a Parent Ambassador to new immigrant families as part of Mayor Dean’s Office for New Americans, even while her daughter Drost doesn’t want to be called a “new American” or even an “American.”
Enclaves in Tennessee?
Early on, the federal policy for resettling refugees advised scattering them across the country as a way to disperse the impact on receiving communities. In 1981 the federal government reversed this practice and instead started placing refugees of similar ethnic groups in the same area. Today, migration patterns upon arrival in the U.S. either for jobs, welfare benefits or to join an established ethnic community, help fuel the growth of the enclaves described by Mayor Dean.
There are enclaves like the Muslims of American (MoA) compound in Stewart County, Tennessee.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security says Muslims of America (MoA) is linked to the Jamaat ul-Fuqra Pakistani militant group.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes MoA as “virulently anti-Semitic,” attributed also with anti-Christian and anti-American rhetoric and tied to “a terrorist organization that has carried out firebombings and murders in the United States.”
There is also evidence of enclaves in the U.S. governed by sharia law.
Importing sharia law and terrorism into the U.S. via Islamic enclaves
According to a Pew Research survey,, “the estimated share of legal Muslim immigrants entering the U.S. each year has roughly doubled, from about 5 percent of legal immigrants in 1992 to about 10 percent in 2012.” The Obama administration has helped accelerate this increase. Legal immigration in the form of refugee resettlement contributes to this growth.
A 2012 poll found that 40% of Muslims living in the U.S. want to be governed by sharia law and 32% want sharia to govern all Americans. Almost half surveyed said “Americans who offer criticism or parodies of Islam should face criminal charges,” while “one in eight” called instead for the death penalty.
Where will this take our Nation?
Because of the U.S. refugee resettlement and asylum program, and Washington’s refusal to stop importing people from terror-sponsoring countries, we have experienced the Boston marathon bombing, the Portland Christmas tree bombing threat, and the New York Times Square bomb threat, to name a few.
How did two Iraqi refugees get to Kentucky when their fingerprints were on an IED that killed five soldiers in Iraq? Because our security screening is lax two jihadis and their radical Islamist ideology, were brought to the U.S. as refugees. Watch the video clip about the case.
In December 2013, liberal California Democrat Sen. Diane Feinstein spoke about the Islamic terrorist threat to the U.S.. She acknowledged that there is a, “real displaced aggression in this very fundamentalist jihadist Islamic community, and that is that the West is responsible for everything that goes wrong and that the only thing that’s going to solve this is Islamic sharia law and the concept of the caliphate.”
Sen. Feinstein suggests a connection between jihadists and sharia law.
The Tie Between Minneapolis and Nashville – “Little Mogadishu”
The vast majority of Somalis living in the U.S. have been brought by federal contractors paid by the U.S. refugee resettlement program; 9,000 in 2014 and over 2,800 so far in 2015.
The Cedar-Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis is called “Little Mogadishu” because it has the largest concentration of Somali Muslims living in the U.S. In August 2014, mainstream media also referred to it as “fertile ground for Islamic terrorist groups recruiting new fighters.” The report cited at least 40 residents who went to fight with ISIS, a pattern similar to the Minneapolis Somalis who joined al-Shabaab in 2013.
The Somali community complained to the Secretary of Home Land Security that their young men had no jobs, nor training or economic opportunity or “an appropriate place to live.” This is why they became “disillusioned and influenced by terrorist organizations” and then leave to go fight with ISIS.
How does this explain the FBI’s newest “Most Wanted Terrorist” a Somali who became a naturalized U.S. citizen through the refugee resettlement program. He drove a taxi cab in D.C. and Virginia while he was recruiting for terrorists.
So, the Obama administration agreed to spend millions of dollars for job training and after-school activities.
The Somali enclave Mayor Dean admires comes with a Somali gang problem. This also connects Minneapolis and Nashville in ways the Mayor likely never envisioned as the price his city would pay for its Somali enclave. Part of Somali gang activity includes human sex trafficking and prostitution. The largest Somali sex trafficking ring which operated out of Minneapolis, Nashville and few other cities, was prosecuted in the federal courthouse in Nashville.
“Little Kurdistan” – Another Nashville Islamist Enclave
Since 2007, federal contractors have been paid to bring approximately 200,000 Iraqis to the U.S.. Catholic Charities brought the first Kurds to Nashville in 1976. They were joined by some Iranian Kurds and then Kurds fleeing Saddam Hussein’s regime.
Between refugee resettlement and “secondary migration” (resettling in one place and moving to another), Nashville has the largest Kurdish community in the U.S. The number is estimated at about 11,000. Their mosque is the Salahadeen Center.
Programs like Nashville Public Television’s series titled “Next Door Neighbors,” just like the “Welcome to Shelbyville” detailing the arrival of Somalis to the town, go to great lengths to characterize these refugees as “hardworking and grateful” to be in this country.
In 2007, the Kurdish Pride Gang (KPG) which grew out of the Nashville refugee Kurdish enclave, shined a different spotlight on the Kurdish community. Police described gang members as “increasingly vicious and brazen.” Gang experts warn that gangs made up of people that come from war-torn countries pose a “unique problem” because they are desensitized to violence and dismissive of authority.
As of 2012, Metro police used a new tactic to break the KPG gang. A judge ruled the gang a public nuisance and issued an injunction that prevents the gang from gathering together in public places.
What the propaganda pieces don’t disclose is that most of the pro-Islamist activism has been initiated and led by members of the Nashville Kurdish community actively abetted by Nashville’s Somali community.
For example, shortly after launching the American Center for Outreach (ACO), Remziya Suleyman aligned her organization with Muslim Brotherhood CAIR. Suleyman brought CAIR to Nashville to train young Muslims in advocating for political Islam. She mentors them in leading a sharia-adherent lifestyle despite admitting “she never knew the concept of sharia.” She has ceded leadership of ACO to former CAIR-Houston director, Paul “Iesa” Galloway.
ACO’s Civic Engagement Coordinator, Drost Kokoye, another member from the Kurdish community helped start the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) and to organize and lead anti-Israel rallies in Nashville. Kurdish Islamist Jihan Abdullah worked for ACO, while her sister Kasar, serves on the AMAC board.
Can Mayor Karl Dean explain again why we should be excited about these enclaves in Nashville?
Tennessee has a law against bullying in schools because we believe that bullying is bad. So every school district in Tennessee has policies committed to eradicating bullies.
But we tolerate Islamist bullying. These bullies use name-calling like “bigot” or “Islamophobe” whenever anyone raises questions about matters like Muslim Brotherhood networks, Muslim Brotherhood plan, or questions the “Muslim as oppressed victim” narrative.
We also tolerate the way in which mainstream media abets Islamist bullying.
On January 15th the Tennessean newspaper published Paul “Iesa” Galloway’s response to the Paris jihadi murders. Galloway is the new executive director of the American Center for Outreach (ACO) which he says represents the political voice of Muslims in Tennessee.
Galloway’s resume includes running his own public relations firm. He claims an expertise in “rebranding,” aka, professional spin doctor. He founded CAIR-Houston and operated it for four years. He served on Mohamed Elibiary’s Freedom and Justice Foundation board alongside arch Islamist Abdulhakim Mohammed, former imam at the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN), who was a mentor to Memphis jihadi Carlos Bledsoe.
Galloway’s predecessor at ACO, Remziya Suleyman also used the “Muslim as victim” narrative and Islamophobia as her rallying cry. AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) founder and former chair, Daoud Abudiab will try to revive the Islamophobia tactic with his spring 2015 Islamophobia Conference.
“Islamophobia” is name-calling designed to suppress any criticism of Islam and Muslims. It was invented specifically for this purpose by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT). The IIIT was part of a 5 year terrorism financing investigation for being the largest monetary donor to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group and because it has other questionable ties to terrorist groups.
Being a Muslim Brotherhood insider by virtue of his CAIR leadership, Galloway knows the Islamophobia tactic is losing its impact because subsequent to each jihadi attack, the public is less convinced that Muslims are the real victims. The Associated Press eliminated the term “Islamophobia” from its stylebook which is the media “bible” to guide accuracy in reporting. Remember this the next time you pick up a newspaper or read a report.
The Associated Press has also redefined “Islamist” as:
“An advocate or supporter of a political movement that favors reordering government and society in accordance with laws prescribed by Islam. Do not use as a synonym for Islamic fighters, militants, extremists or radicals, who may or may not be Islamists.”
This new definition is supported by CAIR. Why? Because it fits precisely to the short and long-term goals of the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for the West as written in their 1991 Explanatory Memorandum.
Do You Think Islamists in Tennessee Are Credible?
Galloway is keeping the “Muslim as victim” narrative but emphasizing the “American Muslim” characterization to try and differentiate U.S. Islamists from the rest of the ummah. Suleyman tried that also. However, she wasn’t able to explain how Islamists here are different than the ones in France and England who say they want more, not less sharia in their lives.
Neither Suleyman nor Galloway can explain why Islamists say they want sharia no-go zones like the ones in France. A 2012 poll of U.S. Muslims showed that 40% want to be judged by sharia law over U.S. laws.
And Galloway says he is “frustrated” that Islamist leaders who disavow any and all acts of terrorism isn’t the final word on this issue? And why is this even relevant? After, actions speak louder than words.
Uber liberal Bill Maher doesn’t find Islamists credible either. Nor does he accept liberals who abet Islamist bullying. Islamists like Galloway and CAIR have Muslim Brotherhood DNA and aren’t credible either when challenged about their work to impose sharia law in the U.S.
In Tennessee, Galloway is faced with the same problem Suleyman encountered; they can’t support their political spin with facts because:
- imams being imported to Tennessee to preach at the mosques and minister to Tennessee’s Muslims, have been Islamically educated either in Saudi Arabia or at Al Ahzar University in Egypt. Al Azhar, credited with starting the Islamist movement, is closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and stands for the propagation of Islam and sharia law for all the world.
- Muslim advisory councils like Tennessee’s AMAC were conceived with the help and support of Muslim Brotherhood organizations like the IIIT, CAIR and the Muslim American Society (MAS) and have the same goals.
- AMAC founder and Board member and former ACO Civic Engagement Coordinator, Drost Kokoye, routinely demonstrates (here and here), the same anti-Semitic Jew hatred which fuels the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas. CAIR’s executive director Nihad Awad, a regular visitor to the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, has publicly stated his support for Hamas; no surprise since CAIR was started by leaders of the Islamic Association for Palestine, which included Nihad Awad.
- Drost complains publicly about being labeled an American and then her co-worker Suleyman complains about being considered an “other”
- the Muslim Brotherhood front organization the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) says it supports gay rights and then Tennessee Islamist activists Drost and Suleyman publicly mock gay marriage:
- AMAC founder and board member Sabina Mohyuddin praises Muslim Brotherhood organizations for helping American Muslims “stay true to their religious values while being uniquely American.”
- Islamist leaders like Galloway and Daoud Abudiab work to co-opt interfaith dialogue while students at the private Islamic school in Knoxville, Annoor Academy, use a textbook that reinforces negative stereotypes and misinformation about Christians and Jews.
- Imams in Tennessee mosques bring in CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood Islamist speakers like Jamal Badawi and Siraj Wahhaj, who preaches that the U.S. should and will become an Islamic state because “Islam is better than democracy” and refuses to condemn Osama bin Laden for 9/11. And speakers like Zaid Shakir who tells the young Islamists that under sharia law “the kafir [non-Muslims] won’t be equal with the Muslim. The Christian or the Jew will be a dhimmi. They won’t be equal with the Muslim.”
- the European Court of Human Rights held as sharia law that: “a sharia-based regime was incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy as set forth in the Convention [on human rights]… particularly with regard to its criminal law and criminal procedure, its rules on the legal status of women and the way it intervened in all spheres of private and public life in accordance with religious precepts.”
Tennessee Islamists Galloway, Suleyman, and AMAC representatives claim that the way to counter what they believe is hate speech against Islam and Muslims, is more speech. But when they don’t like what they hear or when their propaganda is exposed, they revert to bullying.
Whether its “American Muslims” or “Muslim Americans” doing the bullying, they still can’t put lipstick on the Islamophobia pig.
Students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with the help of their faculty advisor, Brian Barber established the first Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter in Tennessee. Their alumnus, Rev. Osagyefo Uhuru Sekou was the keynote speaker at SJP’s 4th annual conference held this year at Tufts University.
It’s fitting that an organization focused on the destruction of Israel would choose Sekou to speak. He and his wife Karlene Griffiths Sekou are both involved with the U.S. BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) against Israel, the end goal of which is to eliminate the Jewish homeland.
Speaking at the SJP conference, Sekou wore the red and white keffiyeh which is associated with Saudis, Palestinians and terrorists.
The red and white keffiyeh is popular with Somali al-Shabaab jihadists.
Members of the al-Farooq mosque in Nashville, also wear the red and white keffiyeh, while some opt for the black and white keffiyeh popularized by Yasir Arafat’s Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).
Jew-haters at the pro-Hamas rallies in Nashville wear both the black and white and the red and white keffiyeh.
Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR Michigan Director Dawud Walid who was brought to Nashville by Remziya Suleyman to train Muslim high school students in political activism sticks to the message of Jew-hatred.
So does Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri and Hamas jihadis:
UTKnoxville’s Students for Justice in Palestine members also favor the black and white:
And so does Mohammed Khan who was arrested at O’Hare airport en route to join ISIS.
Now when you see these scarves, you know that these people are Jew-haters.
Newsletter #155 – The Dark Side of the Interfaith Syndicate: “Our Muslim Neighbor,” CAIR (part 4 of 4)Posted: December 6, 2014
Has Daoud Abudiab invited ACO’s Galloway into his sandbox?
Daoud Abudiab is the former co-chair of AMAC, current board president of the far left TIRRC (TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition) and supporter of the open borders group Clergy for Tolerance. Abudiab also spearheads “Our Muslim Neighbor” (OMN) initiative which is the sole focus of his Faith and Culture Center.
“Our Muslim Neighbor” is a project of Religions for Peace USA (RFPUSA). This project is “designed to advance understanding of Islam and Muslims in Middle Tennessee, a region identified by the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR] and the Center for American Progress [a Marxist left organization] as arguably one of the most Islamophobic areas in America.”
RFPUSA is tied to to Islamist Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the U.S. making the “Our Muslim Neighbor” a good project for Abudiab. (So, does the Faith and Culture Center take its marching orders from CAIR and the Center for American Progress?)
This may also be about Abudiab returning to his own affinity for CAIR – type projects. Abudiab was mentored early on by Awadh Binhazim, who led a CAIR chapter in Austin before moving to Tennessee. Once settled in Nashville, Binhazim was prolific in his dawa although he may best be known for his admission at Vanderbilt University that Islam mandates capital punishment for gays.
Abudiab chose board members for his Faith and Culture Center carefully. His token far left Jew with whom he visits congregations to sign up for his “Our Muslim Neighbor” campaign is Nashville businessman Bernard Werthan of Werthan Packaging, Inc.
Werthan is a self-described “social justice proponent” who also has a $1 million dollar foundation from which to finance pet projects. He is credited with starting Nashville’s Family of Abraham group.
TCPJ has written extensively about the red-green alliance, the Nashville’s Family of Abraham (FOA) group and its connection to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. Werthan is heavily invested in FOA which could explain why he also donated to the New Israel Fund (NIF), which finances several groups that push the BDS campaign against Israel.
A former Muslim tells the truth about Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood and interfaith activities
Dr. Mark Christian director of the Global Faith Institute (GFI) is a formerly devout Egyptian Muslim who converted from Islam to Christianity. His great-uncle helped establish the original Muslim Brotherhood and his father is still attached to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Dr. Christian brings a unique insight to the issues of interfaith dialogue and the Muslim Brotherhood:
“Perhaps more importantly though, I would ask [the tri-faith group] how they reconcile the repugnant ideological component groups like CAIR and ISNA carry with them. An organization does not spring forth from the Muslim Brotherhood, funded and established as an operational arm of the MB in America, simply to abandon the Islamist underpinnings of its founders.
I know that the ideology behind CAIR and ISNA is poisonous to a cooperative interfaith project. They cannot operate as merely one among equals. They will always push Islam to the fore, at the expense of the other partners.
My background as a former Muslim, my training to be a Muslim leader and my intimate understanding of the Muslim Brotherhood itself, taught to me from the inside, by my father and my uncle, tells me that when the Brotherhood is involved, Islam will reign, or Islam will fight.
Abudiab’s new Faith and Culture Center lists the ACO among its local partner organizations. Paul “Iesa” Galloway, who leads Tennessee’s ACO, started with Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR and remains connected through his colleagues.
Galloway has the experience and potential to offer Tennessee’s Muslim Brotherhood a centralized base operating under Abudiab’s interfaith umbrella, a space the Muslim Brotherhood is rapidly coopting according to its plan.
Newsletter #154 – The Dark Side of the Interfaith Syndicate: a Closer Look at the “Green Players” (part 3 of 4)Posted: December 5, 2014
Having laid the groundwork for Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR in Tennessee, ACO’s founder and former Policy Director, Remziya Suleyman, has left to work for the Kurdish Regional Government office in D.C.
Paul “Iesa” Galloway, founder and Executive Director of CAIR – Houston (2002-2006), is the new Director for Tennessee’s ACO. Galloway’s resume looks like a page out of the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Memorandum plan for North America which addresses what needs to be done so that “Islam is enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country in which it moves.”
Various TCPJ newsletters have discussed how the Muslim Brotherhood plan is being implemented in Tennessee via seemingly unobjectionable motives, such as “preventing discrimination and bullying”, “countering prejudice”, “correcting misinformation”, “supplementing school curriculum”, interfaith dialogue and promoting religious freedom.
Take school curriculum for example. Schools in Tennessee use materials provided by CAIR. In other states there are increasing reports of having students learn the shahada, the Islamic conversion prayer, and affirm that there is no god but allah and that “Allah is the same god that is worshipped in Christianity and Judaism” as part of studying Islam as a world religion. Do they tell the students that this prayer is also on the black ISIS flag of jihad?
Paul “Iesa” Galloway and interfaithing
Islamists use ‘interfaith dialogue, or bridge-building as it is sometimes called, to proselytize and at the very least, work to subvert and dhimmify the other faiths.
One of Galloway’s first endeavors after his conversion was to establish and lead a CAIR chapter for four years. He also spent more time with Mohammed Elibiary working for Eliqbiary’s Freedom & Justice Foundation and his Lone Star Intelligence firm.
Galloway also joined the Leadership Team with MuslimMatters.org’s co-founder and resident scholar of the Memphis Islamic Center, Yasir Qadhi, a Jew hater who says Christians are spiritually filthy, is an instructor and Dean of Academic Affairs at AlMaghrib Institute whose students have included the Christmas Day bomber, convicted terrorist Daniel Maldonado and the “underwear bomber.” The 2006 Texas Dawah Convention brought together Qadhi, Elibiary, Islamic Center of Tennessee Imam AbdulRahman ibn Esa Chao and Galloway.
Galloway took his Muslim Brother mentorship and began applying it to the engine of the interfaith syndicate. For approximately three years Galloway was an Interfaith Relations Program Manager for the Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston. In 2013, this enterprise posted revenues of $17 million.
In 2013 Galloway was hired as the Executive Director of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston (ISGH) and described his job as “conceiving, developing and executing programs and events that bring diverse groups of people together to increase the strength of our shared beliefs!”
Does this suggest anything about the direction he will take the ACO and the Family of Abraham interfaith syndicate in Nashville? Time will tell.
