- Islam education centre proposed
- Group behind plan founded by extremist
- He encourages children to kill themselves
A GROUP founded by a Muslim extremist who encourages children to kill themselves for Allah plans to build a huge complex in Sydney to teach young people Islam.
In what it says is a world first, theÂ Global Islamic Youth CentreÂ is trying to raise more than $6 million to build a giant “prayer, learning and sporting” facility in Liverpool.
It has already raised $700,000 towards a $1m land purchase.
The organisation says it expects the local Muslim population to almost double to 20,000 in the next decade and notes that a third of the population is under 19.
* All the more reason to reverse the Islamic invasion…
Even the far left AGE shrieks:
NSW must monitor Islamic centre
The NSW government must ensure a proposed Islamic school in Sydney will not teach the views of an associated Muslim extremist, the opposition says.
The Global Islamic Youth Centre is attempting to raise more than $6 million to build a huge complex at Liverpool in Sydney’s west.
The centre was founded by Sheik Feiz Mohammad, who in 2007 described Jews as “pigs” and called on children to sacrifice themselves to Allah in a series of DVDs.
Opposition education spokesman Andrew Stoner said the government must cast a close eye over the school and what it may teach.
“The state government needs to give an assurance to the community that any proposal for this Islamic school and youth centre will be put under the microscope,” Mr Stoner told reporters.
“It needs to ensure that these extremist views, these messages of hate, cannot be taught to young school children in this state.”

It also says it wants to attract youth from across Sydney.
The GYIC was founded byÂ Sheik Feiz MohammadÂ and others in 2000 to “cater for the physical, social, educational and religious needs, especially for the youth and the children, in accordance with the teachings of the Quran”.
Sheik Feiz remains the most prominent “spiritual leader”Â of the centre, which features a direct email link to him on its home page so students can “seek Islamic knowledge” from him.
* Similar to Omar Bakri in the UK, who pulls the strings from Lebanon…
However, the Sheik was exposed two years ago for having called on children to sacrifice themselves to Allah, describing Jews as “pigs” and calling non-believers “filth”.
He has been linked to convicted terrorist “Jihad”Â Jack Rocheand several other terror suspects.
Locals said the project will divide the community, causing a backlash.
* You bet it will!
A spokesman for the centre confirmed that the Sheik remained “a figurehead” and that his books and DVDs, which include repeated calls for “jihad martyrdom”, would be available at the new facility, which is still at the concept stage.
The poster at the Global Islamic Youth Centre says the new multi-million-dollar complex will be “a shining beacon for Islam and will be an example for all Muslims worldwide to admire and repeat”.
It says it will be “a place our children can call our own”.Â
But the spiritual founder of the GIYC, Sheik Feiz Mohammad, once had very different plans for the children of Islam.
He was exposed in January last year as having told his followers in one of his many video lectures: “Today many parents, they prevent their children from attending lessons. Why? They fear that they might create a place in their hearts, the love, just a bit of the love, of sacrificing their lives for Allah.Â
“We want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam. Teach them this: there is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a holy warrior. Put in their soft, tender hearts the zeal of jihad and a love of martyrdom.”
