Newsletter #124 – What Does Aljabbary/Mohammed’s “Change” Look Like?

Mwafaq Aljabbary, aka Mwafaq Mohammed, is running for Tennessee Senate District 21 in Davidson County (Nashville), the seat previously held by Democrat Douglas Henry for over 40 years.

Aljabbary aka Mohammed says that:

“My ethnicity is Kurd and I am an immigrant. The population demography of Nashville is changing and this trend will continue for years to come. More and more immigrants and minorities are selecting Nashville as their home. We chose to live in America for a reason and that is the Freedom and principals America represents. 

It is not impossible to win this race. With your help and support we can have our voice in the government.”

Who do you think Aljabbary aka Mohammed is talking about when he says “we chose to live in America” and “we can have our voice in the government?”

Just as fellow Islamist and American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) member Zak Mohyuddin, running for County Commissioner in Coffee County, also tells voters that American Muslims are part of the changing demographics that he represents.

Jummah (Friday prayer) at MLK Academic Magnet School in Nashville

This is the Muslim Student Association (MSA) at MLK Academic Magnet School. This MSA was organized by the Muslim Youth Network of TN (MYNT) after being trained last summer (and this video) in political activism by CAIR director Dawud Walid and Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO) Director, Remziya Suleyman.  Suleyman is a member of the Kurdish mosque where Aljabbary aka Mohammed served as the president in 2010.

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.

High school MSAs in other states report their success with their dawa and conversion of non-Muslims:

“Many students are signed out by parents to attend Jumu’ah at nearby Prince George’s County  Muslim Association (PGMA) or Dar-us-Salaam.

The students who get left behind are the ones who embrace Islam in high school unknown to their parents, many who are devout followers of other faiths.’A brother who was a taxi driver used to come and pick the convert brothers and take them to Friday prayer, but then the principal found out and she was very upset,’ says Hayat. (emphasis added)

At the last MSA meeting at Parkdale High, there were at least three students who raised their  hand when asked if they were the only Muslims in their families. Some of these students are as young as 14.”

Jummah at the Nashville school is the Muslim Friday prayer. These students are praying in accordance with Sharia law.

Who wants more of Aljabbary aka Mohammed’s change?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Newsletter #120 – Muslim Community of Knoxville – facts should make you queasy (Part 1 of 2)

Until now, little has been written about the Knoxville Muslim community.  Considering the Muslim Brotherhood ties and extremist associations of some Tennessee community leaders, no one should be surprised about what is being taught to Muslim students in the Knoxville Islamic school.

In 1984, Rafiq Mahdi helped establish the Annoor Mosque also known as the Muslim Community of Knoxville Community (MCK).  It works in “close cooperation” with the Annoor Academy Islamic school, the UT Knoxville Muslim Students Assocation (MSA) and the Islamic Education Foundation of Knoxville.  Services listed include the “Roots (Muslim Youth of Knoxville)” program, “Convert Connection” and “Friday Sermon.”

Mahdi, (formerly known as William Henderson), is a black American convert to Islam who first joined the racist and anti-Semitic Nation of Islam. Later he left the NOI and completed his Islamic training in Saudi Arabia at the University of Medina, the same school where Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi (who calls Christians spiritually flithy), was trained.

Before becoming the “unofficial Imam of the MCK,” Mahdi led the Masjid Al-Iman in Florida, after his colleague Raed Awad, stepped down. This “small fundamentalist mosque,” gained national attention because it was the spiritual home of the “dirty bomber” Jose Padilla who had ties to al Qaeda and was convicted of planning a jihad attack in 2002.

Mahdi’s buddy Raed Awad, described as “an Islamic fundamentalist Palestinian” was also the registered agent in Florida for the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) during the time HLF was funneling money to Hamas, the military branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Awad was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF prosecution and identified as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

In 2002, Mahdi helped fundraise for the KindHearts Foundation which was shut down under suspicion of raising money for Hamas.

Mahdi says…

Mahdi “envisions an Islamic empire, a place where, if you don’t follow Muslim rules, you are free – to leave the country….[he says], Islam is Islam, and it has been since it was revealed 1400 and some odd years ago, and it is not the right of any individual to take it upon themselves to change it based on their own rationale or want or desire. We want to keep it in the truest form.”

He claims that most Muslims do not see Hamas as a terrorist organization, and he would like to hear Osama Bin Laden’s “side of the story” because he’s not convinced he was behind 9/11.

Mahdi back in Knoxville

Mahdi returned to Knoxville in 2005. In 2010 he became Director of Community Development at ICNA Relief USA, the charity arm of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) named by the Muslim Brotherhood as a likeminded “organization[s] of our friends” in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Explanatory Memorandum plan for North America.  ICNA is also closely linked to a Pakistani Islamist group.

The Muslim Brotherhood “friends” were identified as groups that could help teach Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”

ICNA has long held its annual conferences in conjunction with the Muslim American Society, also an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Mahdi and ICNA share the same vision of a U.S. governed by sharia law.  Is that why ACO Director Remziya Suleyman asked him to help promote her organization? Or do they simply share a fundamentalist’s belief of how to live by sharia law?

In 1999 ICNA’s President welcomed attendees with this message: “We have a culture and civilization which once ruled the world and still has the viability to rule the world again.” Any denial by Mahdi of the ultimate goal is simply taqiyya (Islamically sanctioned lying).

Mahdi and ICNA – made for each other

ICNA’s pursuit of establishing Islam as the “sole basis of global society and governance” was published in its 2010 Member’s Hand Book which also sanctioned deceit while proselytizing their way to this goal.

In 2012 ICNA got serious about its dawa (proselytizing) with a $3 million dollar campaign to promote sharia law in America including “Got Questions?, Get Answers” billboards in 20 cities, radio spots, college campus sharia seminars and a 25 city “education tour” to help Americans better understand sharia law and feel better about its encroachment into the public domain.

Did ICNA representatives tell their audiences that it’s now scrubbed website feature “Great Leaders of the last 100 Years” included Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini and Sayyid Qutb the Muslim Brotherhood leader whose writings were the inspiration for al Qaeda?

Maybe they handed out copies of ICNA’s magazine which featured Muslim Brotherhood extremist leader Sheik Al-Qaradawi (banned from entry into the U.S. since 1999) who said democracy is permitted only when it complies with Shariah law.

Just like Annoor Academy’s textbook, ICNA promotes hatred of Jews and Christians: The curricula for ICNA’s women’s organization also promotes jihad, Sharia rule and warns of the “dangers of secular Western thoughts and ideas.”

In addition to ICNA Relief which Mahdi heads, ICNA has a youth division called Young Muslims and a multimedia division called Sound Vision that helps ICNA pursue its goals through dawa in U.S. public schools: “Reaching the youth has not always been an area explored by those in the Dawa field. Our representatives visit public schools sharing knowledge of Islam as an attempt to correct the misrepresentations often found in secular reading materials.”

A TN American Muslim Advisory Council member, claimed that ICNA is one of the those organizations “that help American Muslims stay true to their religious values while being uniquely American.”

Naeem Baig, ICNA’s President serves in a leadership role with Religions for Peace USA (RFPUSA).  TN ACO Director Remziya Suleyman is also a RFPUSA representative. Speaks volumes about this organization doesn’t it?

Mahdi Influences Tennessee’s young Muslims

Mahdi speaks at the UT Knoxville Muslim Students Association events and has the opportunity to influence even younger students when speaking at the Knoxville ROOTS programs (more on this later), and the Nashville-based Muslim Youth Network of TN (MYNT) retreats.  In keeping with its Muslim Brotherhood themed training, MYNT had Dawud Walid from CAIR at their 2013 summer retreat.

It seems that Knoxville’s Islamic school Annoor Academy has followed Mahdi’s lead by choosing to use Yahiya Emerick’s textbook “What Islam Is All About.”  Like Mahdi, Emerick also fantasizes about “How to Make America an Islamic Nation.” One of his books has been adopted into the curriculum of Al-Azhar University in Egypt, the preeminent teaching center of sharia law and the institution that  authenticated the English translation of “The Reliance of the Traveller, The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.”

Emerick’s textbook, following the dictates of the Quaran, warns students about getting too friendly with non-Muslims and denigrates Jews and Christians and their religions and beliefs.  More than anything, Emerick offers Islam as a civilization alternative without warning students about the loss of individual freedom and liberties (especially for women), under sharia law.

These are the same ideas that Rafiq Mahdi brings to the Muslims of Knoxville who proudly proclaim him their “unofficial imam.”

Newsletter #89 – CAIR Director Who Trained Nashville Students Explains Al-Shabaab

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?
