It’s bad enough that the Obama Justice Department is set to ban federal law enforcement officers from surveilling mosques without evidence of criminal activity.
After a member of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma (ISGOC) beheaded a woman at his workplace, last week, the White House actually sent a top Department of Homeland Security official to the mosque to “present a special thank you to the Muslim congregation,” according to Oklahoma’s KFOR.
He read a message from President Barrack [sic] Obama, extending warm greetings from the American people during the Muslim holiday.
“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” President Barack Obama said.
This is not a situation in which the president should feel comfortable speaking for “the American people.” At least not the ones who have educated themselves about this particular mosque.
As Jordon Schachtel wrote at Breitbart National Security, “the beheader’s mosque, the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, was founded by a sibling of a U.S.-designated Hamas terrorist, and in the past has welcomed an Imam who was a close confidant to al-Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki.”
Last week on Fox News, Megyn Kelly had interviewed a man who claimed to be a former member of the ISGOC.
He no longer goes there, he said, because it is too radical – but at the end of the show he mentioned that he had been back there a few times since he left – most recently in 2011. “The reason I was there was at the request of law enforcement – and that’s all I can say than that,” he said.
This is the mosque, the president is sending warm greetings to on behalf of the American people.
The former mosque member, going by the name, “Noor” (he wanted to remain anonymous for obvious reasons), blew the whistle on the very radical culture at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, where Alton Nolen/Yakeem Yisrael attended. No one from the mosque agreed to speak on camera – a Fox reporter on the scene in Oklahoma City said a rep from the mosque was originally slated to speak to him, but CAIR intervened and called the interview off. (Breitbart National Security recently reported on the close working relationship between CAIR and the ISGOC.)
Partial transcript via Fox News Insider:
“I observed the teachings of Islam […] to the public, the mosque will not promote terrorism or any kind of radical acts, but when they’re among friends and congregants only, they will promote the true teachings of Islam, which include the offer to non-Muslims – the choice, rather – that you must convert, live under Islamic rule or be fought against,” he said.
He said he had two friends at the mosque who told him that if Osama bin Laden were to come to their doors, they would let him in and protect him.
Megyn Kelly asked: “Did the mosque talk about speaking differently in front of the media?”
“Absolutely,” he said. “When they cannot do jihad physically, they attempt to do jihad by means of stealth, by endearing themselves to the media, endearing themselves to government, endearing themselves to the American people to slowly work their way in.”
“They all believe in their religion which teaches that according to the Haddith […] when you approach the nonbelievers you must offer them a choice to convert, pay a jiza, or poll tax, and live in submission or you will be fought against which is what you see with ISIS and al Qaeda and various other groups throughout the world,” Noor explained.
Megyn questioned how everyone at the mosque could be that radical.
The person who told Noor about the concept of jihad and the choices that must be offered to non Muslims, was Imam Suhaib Webb who is now the Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston – which was attended by the Tsarnaev brothers during his tenure as Imam.
Alton Nolen/Yakeem Yisrael tried to have his co-workers convert to Islam before he returned with a knife to commit his act of “workplace violence.”
