US imam calls on Muslims in US to wage jihad

By Neil Munro – DailyCaller – Feb. 26, 2013

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

“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?” Shakir 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.

Cairo-born Elsayed is a citizen of the United States. The mosque’s name, al-Hijrah, refers to the Islamic strategy of using migrants to gradually expand Islam into new territories.

Before and after the Sept. 11 atrocity, the mosque employed Anwar al-Awlaki as an imam.

Awlaki was a U.S. citizen, born to immigrant parents in New Mexico. He fled the country in 2004 but was successfully killed in a 2011 drone-attack. While overseas, he was tied to several jihadi attacks, including the November 2009 murder of 13 Americans at Fort Hood by a Muslim soldier in the United States Army.

The Arlington mosque is also closely linked to Brotherhood-founded organizations in the United States, including the Muslim American Society.

The federal government has investigated numerous Muslim groups in the United States, and has jailed or deported many Muslims who aided jihadis.

But Rossomando and other critics say the government has done too little to stop the Brotherhood from building a network of mosques, schools and advocacy groups in the United States.

The government has also done too little to shield immigrant Muslims from the brotherhood, and to integrate into U.S. society and culture, critics say.

“The Obama administration has willingly turned a blind eye to the extremist statements by the leadership of the nation’s top Islamist groups,” he said.

T. C. Williams High School’s student body is 39% Black, 30% Hispanic, 22% White, 7% Asian/Pacific Islander and American Indian, and 2% unspecified.

  1. I don’t think Obama will do a thing about this!

  2. Remember when he said, “We can absorb another 9/11″?

  3. There was a time, in this country, when incendiary language like that would have gotten him deported without so much as a by your leave. Now, nothing touches those like him. The government twiddles its thumbs ignoring them, while they surveil the true citizens, treat veterans like criminals, telling them they can’t have guns, and plotting more ways to impoverish those of us who produce, and those of us who worked our whole lives to preserve freedom.

  4. I wrote to the principle…This is her response….

    Dear Ms. Maxey,

    What the hell do you think you are doing? Who the Hell do you think you are?

    These are High School Students! You have NO RIGHT to have a RELIGIOUS LEADER PREACHING in that school.

    This one is going to the ACLU.

    Mrs. Gardino,

    A Muslim minister did not talk with our students, nor was he invited to our school. The facilities department of our school district rents our auditorium to community groups on the weekends and in the evenings when the school is not using it. My administrative team and teaching staff were not aware of this event and did not participate in it. The event took place on a Saturday in January when school was not in session. Local Christian groups also rent our auditorium for various functions throughout the year.

    • Thank you, for taking action and letting us know the principal’s limp-wristed response!

      • Dear Ms. Mackey,

        Inadvertently…through your lack of concern about the spread of radical
        Islam, you are contributing to the decay of our nation!…Where are your
        moral convictions? If you have none, then you should not be the Principal of
        a high school, particularly with a population that is susceptible to these
        kinds of teachings! T. C. Williams High School’s student body is 39% Black,
        30% Hispanic, 22% White, 7% Asian/Pacific Islander and American Indian, and
        2% unspecified. I am happy to hear there were no students present, but the
        school district is allowing this kind of radical messaging for the sake of a
        dollar?…NOT ACCEPTABLE! Not in this country, and not at this time!

        Mrs. Gardino

  5. We are being distracted by these happenings, which is most likely the motive behind them being publicized and subsequently stirring up mayhem. Nothing is more important than our nation returning to Christ, to follow Jesus Christ and his example and teachings. The God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob that we learned about in the Old Testament sent his only begotten son to this world, the word incarnate, to show us the way. The way? The way to a holy and eternal life. The commandments and behavior prescribed in the Old and New Testaments is contrary to waging Jihad. As a Christian nation we should uphold Christian principles and declare that God is Love. Love covers all sin as set forth in the Book of Proverbs. Love is the only way. Anything else is a wild goose chase.

  6. Lindarm, that, my Friend, is a THREAT OF WAR….he should be locked up NOT deported.

  7. Let’s get it on you yellow belly girlie men with the diapers on your heads!!!!

  8. Thank you Dr. Eowyn and Mr. Wilcox for this alarming post! There is no question this individual is calling for a war; call a spade, a spade, and don’t twist the real meaning of the communication.

    Yes, would this high school rent their space to allow the American Nazi Party to teach their agenda?

    God help us with this lack of courage, the sheer lukewarmness of people!

  9. It’s a public funded space if it is a public high school. I’d say they let any of the tax-paying public use it if no property damage is done and cleaning is paid for. It’s usually ACLU trouble for them if they discriminate in who gets to use it.

  10. Dr. E!!!! EXACTLY!!! Great point! And, people spend a lot of time making excuses and you came up with THREE LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET!

  11. Hay diaper head, when ya want to move into Oklahoma please give me a couple of days notice. That way we can get the pigs on the spit going… then when we are done with your tripe we will pile your bodies into piles, piss on them, then pour the pig blood on them, then have a beer while watching the bonfire…
