The title of this article is not meant to be provocative. Its a serious national security question.
Since before 9/11, nearly all of the muslim leaders in the United States who have been hailed as “moderate” or described as “opposing” the violence of Al Qaeda, ISIS and others, turn out to be one of them.
The complete list is entirely too long to detail in one article, but here is a short list of a few of the muslim leaders who worked with or inside the U.S. government since 9/11/01 who are terrorists.
Anwar al Awlaki – Al Qaeda leader in Yemen. Killed by U.S. missile strike in September 2011. Prior to his death, Awlaki gave briefings to leaders inside the Pentagon, taught lessons on Islam’s prophet inside the U.S. Capitol, and was hailed as a new moderate face of Islam by the media.
Abdurahman Alamoudi – Senior Al Qaeda financier. Currently in federal prison. Prior to his arrest Alamoudi created the Muslim Chaplain program for the Department of Defense, worked with the Department of Education on what goes into public school books about Islam, was a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the U.S. State Department, was the “Islamic Advisor” to President Clinton, and was the most prominent Islamic leader in America in the 1990’s.
Anwar Hajjaj – leader of 2 Al Qaeda funding channels, Taibah International and WAMY (World Assembly of Muslim Youth). Both organizations were founded by Osama bin Laden’s nephew and jihadi Abdullah. Taibah’s Bosnian officer was designated a terrorist organizations by the U.S. government. Hajjaj led prayers and gave talks inside the U.S. Capitol.
Ali Mohamed – Mohamed is an Al Qaeda operative who was a close associate of Osama bin Laden, trained jihadis for the attack on U.S. troops in Mogadishu, coordinated the surveillance for the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Africa, and much more. In 2000, he pled guilty to numerous charges and was sent to federal prison. Ali Mohamed served as a supply sergeant in the U.S. Army Special Forces, and was a “source” for the FBI and CIA.
Siraj Wahhaj – this Al Qaeda operative is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing attack, testified as a character witness for Al Qaeda’s senior jurist Omar Abdel Rahman, “The Blind Sheikh,” is the father of jihadis who built a training compound in New Mexico which was raided a few years ago, and continues to call for the overthrow of the United States. Wahhaj was the first Islamic Imam to lead prayers in the U.S. House of Representatives and continues to serve as the Imam of the Al Taqwa Mosque in Brooklyn.
Gulmurod Khalimov – this ISIS Commander was trained by the U.S. Department of State 5 times, including weapons and tactics training inside the United States. State Department officials defended this atrocity by explaining Khalimov was “fully vetted.” At the time he was being trained, videos existed online showing Khalimov calling for the killing of Americans.
Nada Nadim Prouty – this Hizbollah operative served as a Special Agent in the FBI and a Case Officer in the CIA. She pled guilty in federal court to intentionally using the FBI’s classified system to search information about her family and classified ongoing Hizbollah investigations. She later published a book entitled “Uncompromised” and is hailed by the media and Hollywood for “overcoming her persecution.”
Louay Safi – Senior Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leader who left the United States to lead the Syrian National Council, the revolutionary MB in that country. Prior to that, in his role as the Executive Director for the Islamic Society of North America’s Leadership Development Center, trained/certified Bureau of Prison and Department of Defense Muslim Chaplains, and coordinated “interfaith” events with the senior military chaplains. After the Fort Hood attack, Safi have a check to the families of the victims, but failed to mentioned it was the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood which supported the Fort Hood attack.
Nihad Awad – Leader of Hamas in the United States. Serves as the Executive Director for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Awad is frequently on Capitol Hill developing legislative strategies for various Members and committees and pushing the jihadi agenda. His organization, is also one of the primary groups leading the “Interfaith Outreach” in the U.S. which is a propaganda operation against the Church.
Megan Fair – Hamas operative. Ms. Fair recently coordinated an online meeting between senior U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leaders and the senior Executive DHS and FEMA Grant Officials who helped the jihadis learn how to obtain tax payer money to physically strengthen their mosques across the country.
While this is a very short list, it raises a great deal of questions. At what point is it reasonable to assume democrat and republican leaders are not “ignorant” of all of this going on, but complicit?
