"Sheikh" Khalid Yasin, a good ol'Harlem shyster

Khalid Yasin’s Road Show

Gates of Vienna/by Baron Bodissey

We posted a report here last week about Khalid Yasin, who was born in either Brooklyn or Harlem (depending on which source you read) and converted to Islam. Mr. Yasin spent some time in the UK and Australia, and then recently turned up in the Netherlands, where he is giving the Dutch government heartburn over the prospect of his incendiary preaching.

A choice quote from Khalid Yasin:

And how can you put a sacred trust in the hands of a non-Muslim? There’s no such thing as a Muslim having a non-Muslim friend. If you prefer the clothing of the kafirs over the clothing of the Muslims, most of those names that’s on most of those clothings is faggots, homosexuals and lesbians.

Now it turns out that Khalid Yasin is more than simply a Muslim firebrand: he’s a good old-fashioned shyster in the venerable American tradition.  

While he was in Australia, Mr. Yasin raised money from investors for the “Purpose of Life” Islamic TV channel. But, as it happened, these investments were obtained fraudulently. Once the money was in Khalid Yasid’s hands it was used for no tangible purpose, and, when evidence of his shenanigans surfaced, Mr. Yasin was obliged to depart Australia somewhat prematurely.

The full transcript is available at the ninemsn website.
