ISLAM'S MODERATE IMAMS
... 'Militant Islam In America'
According to Dr. Ali Sina, author and former Muslim:
"The only disagreement between moderate and terrorist Muslims is when and how the jihad against the infidels should take place. Otherwise, all the Muslims, whether moderate or extreme, believe in the same book. That book calls for the waging war against the non-Muslims until they are subdued and humiliated."
Muzammil H. Siddiqi is a Harvard-educated imam, highly regarded among Muslim and non-Muslim circles, including the president of the United States. He stood with G.W. Bush during the post 9/11 services at the National Cathedral in 2001, to represent the Muslim faith, and to condemn the attack against America. Weeks later he was an honored guest of the president at the White House, where Mr. Bush was given a copy of the Qur'an.
However, during a rally one year before, Siddiqi had given a speech across from that same White House... where he and other Muslim leaders praised Palestinian terrorists, and issued a warning to Americans to side with Palestinian Muslims against the Jews, or face Allah's punishment. When compared to notorious Abu Musab al-Zarqawi he might be considered moderate; at least he doesn't chop off heads of infidels.
In 2003, Siddiqi issued a Fatwa, or religious decree to the Figh (deeper) Council of North America: "...As Muslims we should participate in the (American) system to safeguard our interests, and try to bring gradual change. We must not forget that Allah's rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead in that direction."
Well, that could be considered a moderate way of declaring intent to conquer. At least, he didn't blow himself up in a crowded New York restaurant.
Omar M. Ahmad is another moderate Muslim leader who helped to establish the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a powerful lobbying group based in Washington D.C.
He also had been an honored guest at the White House, and invited by the president to join the day of mourning at the National Cathedral after 9/11.
This is what this so-called moderate Muslim said at an Islamic Conference in Fremont, California in 1998:
"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to be dominant. The Qur'an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted faith on earth."
Imam Siraj Wahhaj is an American black who converted to Islam and became a recognized leader in the Muslim community, particularly in Brooklyn, where he does most of his preaching. Dubbed a moderate by government officials, Wahhaj holds the honor of being the first Muslim ever to give opening prayer in the U.S. Congress. He was recipiant of commendations from police for helping to drive out crime in the neighborhoods. Brooklyn authorities proclaimed a day in Wahhaj's name for giving "outstanding and meaningful achievements."
How can government officials be so fooled? Or, perhaps they are blind from burying their heads in the sand. The same year (1991) he led the prayer in congress, he gave a speech to Muslims in Texas, where he predicted that America would fall unless it accepts the Islamic agenda.
In another speech in New Jersy, Wahhaj was heard to say, "Take my word for it, if six to eight million Muslims unite in America...the country will come to us."
This so-called moderate Muslim hosted the "Blind Sheikh", Omar Abdel Rahman at his Brooklyn mosque, the same man convicted of the first World Trade Center bombing (1993). He even appeared in court as a character witness.
These examples represent the tip of the iceberg. While the major goal of militant Islam is to convert the world, the people who are instrumental in achieving it, make no bones about the deception. They know that it is vital at this point, to portray themselves as "moderate", and a non-threat, blending in with the mainstream; but it's a sham, designed to dupe every American, from the side-streets of Wichita to the Oval Office, until Sharia Law finally takes effect, and we are all in submission to Allah. Is it any wonder that informed people will trust no Muslim? What's worrysome, is how grossly uninformed - or ignorant, our government really is.
Editor's note: Here in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, we had a visiting imam from Georgetown's Catholic University! Yahya Hendi was an invited guest (by two local pastors) to preach "peace & love", and how we infidels can hope to "build bridges to understanding, with Islam"! - reb
