US imam calls on Muslims in US to wage jihad

Neil Munro
White House Correspondent
  

The controversial imam of a prominent mosque in Arlington, Va., has urged immigrant Muslims in the United States to wage war for Islam.

“The enemies of Allah are lining up. The question for us is, are we lining [up] or are we afraid because they may call us terrorists?” Shaker Elsayed told a crowd of Ethiopian Muslims during a lecture at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va.

“Let me give you the good news: they are already calling us terrorists anyway. Whether you sitting at home, watching TV, drinking coffee, sleeping or playing with your kids, you are a terrorist because you are a Muslim.”

“Well, give them a run for their money. Make it worth it. Make this title worth it, and be a good Muslim,” said the Cairo-born Muslim.

“Muslim men when it is a price to pay, they are first in line. … They are the first in the community-service line. They are the first in jihad line,” he declared to applause.

At the end of the imam’s incendiary speech, a representative of the Ethiopian group walked to the podium and declared the speech was not calling for jihad.

“Just a disclaimer,” the emcee said. “Imam Shakir, he’s not advocating for armed struggle in Ethiopia. He’s just simply giving us a lesson. We’ll just continue with our non-violent struggle until these guys who are in prison [in Ethiopia] who did not bow down for this repressive government … are free.”

Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, the press secretary for the imam’s Dar al-Hijrah mosque, did not respond to messages from The Daily Caller.

“If Dar al-Hijrah were like most American religious institutions it would fire Elsayed, but it’s not like most religious institutions,” John Rossomando, a researcher at the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

“The mosque operates as a front for Hamas … [and] has the distinction of being connected with more terror plots than just about any other mosque in America,” he said in a statement to TheDC.

Ethiopia is a majority-Christian country and has defended itself from encroaching Muslims armies for more than 1,000 years. Currently, Muslims in Ethiopia’s Ogaden region complain that the central government has not given them autonomy.

“Ethiopian muslims are protesting against perceived government interference in their activities … [and] observers fear the latest move by the government would spark protests by muslims in the Horn of Africa country,” said a website run by Badr Ethiopia, an Ethiopian Muslim group.

The group cites the controversial Council on American Islamic Relations as an affiliate.

Elsayed’s comments add to his history of controversial statements that match orthodox Islam, but which clash with American culture.

In 1990, for example, The New York Times quoted him saying that the murder of a radical Jewish nationalist in New York was legal under Muslim law.

The murder of rabbi Meir Kahane “was not a violation, in the sense that Kahane adopted a position against all Arabs and Muslims,” said Elsayed, according to the Times.

According to numerous Islamic leaders, Islamic law endorses the use of war to expand the rule of Islam. The law, dubbed Shariah, also endorses the killing of Islam’s critics, including poets Christian preachers, and it allows only grudging recognition of non-Islamic governments.

For orthodox Muslims, civilian law is subordinate to Islamic requirements.

That provision has been implemented, at least in part, in Egypt’s new 2012 constitution. The constitution was mostly written by legislators in the political party created by the international Muslim Brotherhood organization.

Why do you think?  Look what is happening even WITH the disclaimer.  Give me a break.

Quoting 12hellokitty:

 If that's all it means then why the need to for a disclaimer after the Imams speech?

“Just a disclaimer,” the emcee said. “Imam Shakir, he’s not advocating for armed struggle in Ethiopia. He’s just simply giving us a lesson. We’ll just continue with our non-violent struggle until these guys who are in prison [in Ethiopia] who did not bow down for this repressive government … are free.”


Quoting mehamil1:

Hey stupid, jihad means struggle. Not go blow people up. 

Quoting Imacakebaker:

 But you just took a shot at her right off the bat instead of reading and realizing that the post is pretty much on point.


Quoting FromAtoZ:


Quoting pvtjokerus:

 Why are you attacking her for posting something that an Imam stated in the press?  Why are you not addressing the real issue instead of attacking the person sharing it with us?

 

Quoting FromAtoZ:

OP, you better a get a hold of yourself before you end up on a 'watch list'.

 

 

She is as crazy as the things she posts.  I don't have much use for some one who would round up all Muslims and put them in camps.

 No one said that they did.  However, with publicity like this hurts Muslims and they need to step up and do something about it. 


Quoting Bookwormy:

Do perps represent the entire RCC? Do terrorists represent all anti-privacy Christians who are against abortion, just because some are willing to bomb clinics & kill physicians? Does WBC represent all Christians?

If I suggest all Catholics are child molesters or that the RCC knowingly protected priests who did, I will get attacked. If I point out anti-privacy Christians commit acts of terror to protect fetuses, I'm told they are not representative, they are extremist, etc. And clearly everyone jumps on me if I suggest WBC is Christian.

One Imam does not Islam make.

The guy who introduced the Imam immediately clarified that this was not a call to violence.

What research have you done beyond the OP to see if this Imam has been renounced? Do you trust one article from one Islamophobe?

How come no one cared about WBC when they were just homophobes? No one cared until they went after fallen military, except my peeps. Why is it that only GLBT cared? Huh? Riddle me that riddler.

Most Muslims are not terrorists....

Most Americans are not terrorists...

But there will always be on occasion a Bin Laden or a Timothy McVeigh that commits an act of terrorism.
