Surprise, surprise: Philadelphia shooter who wounded six cops is devout Moslem

Philadelphia: Maurice Hill, who wounded six cops in shootout, is devout Muslim who attended jihadi mosque

Jihad Watch

Maurice Hill, the criminal who wounded six police officers in a shootout in Philadelphia and was arrested after a seven-hour standoff, attended a radical mosque.

The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”

You can see from the impressive zebiba on Maurice Hill’s forehead that he is a devout Muslim; the zebiba is a bruise that forms from the fact that Muslims in their five daily prayers perform numerous prostrations, pressing their foreheads to the ground. The zebiba is seen as a mark of intense piety. That in itself doesn’t make this a jihad attack, but the teachings of the mosque, from the looks of this report, are clearly suspect; the mosque should be investigated. If Maurice Hill were a white supremacist neo-Nazi, would the establishment media be as indifferent to that detail as it is to Hill’s mosque membership? What do you think?

“Clarion Intel Exclusive: Philadelphia Shooter Attended Radical Mosque,” Clarion Project, August 16, 2019:

Maurice Hill, the criminal who wounded six police officers in a shootout in Philadelphia and was arrested after a seven-hour standoff, attended a radical mosque.

The mosque, called Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar, is known for preaching the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism.”

Clarion Intelligence Network has been aware through its sources that the area where the shootings took place is known for trafficking in guns, drugs and counterfeit items. This criminal market has a strong Islamist element that includes extremist gangs.

Hill’s older sister said he “occasionally attended” an unnamed mosque, confirming initial reports from our sources that Hill is a Muslim. The sources do not yet have first-hand evidence of the shooter being personally involved in Islamist extremism.

Clarion Intel’s sources report that Masjid Ahlil Hadith Wal Athar is a Salafi mosque which follows the theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars.

At this point, there is no indication that Hill’s shooting of police officers was motivated by Islamism or anything other than a desire to resist arrest.

However, Islamism’s inherent hostility towards Western governments and values fuels anti-police bigotry that can justify violence against law enforcement. Clarion’s sources stated that many of the mosque’s attendees view the police as oppressors of Muslims….

  1. Clarion Project writes of “the Islamist ideology promoted by Saudi Arabia referred to as “Wahhabism””.

    There is no mention of “Islamist” in the Manual of Islamic Law, “Reliance of the Traveller”. The word was invented in order to deflect attention away from Islam.

    Wahhabism, begun by Wahhab in the eighteenth century, is “back to basics” true-to-the-source-texts Islam, as in the time of Mohammed and the Salaf, the “pious predecessors”, the first three generations of muslims. Wahhab deplored later developments like revering the shrines of scholars. His work is the closest that Islam has had to a Reformation, and is comparable with the “back to the Scriptures” work of Martin Luther.

    The “theocratic teachings of Saudi Arabia’s top Wahhabist scholars” are the theocratic teachings of Islam.

    Wahhabism presents itself as authentic Mohammed-era Islam.

    The West’s comprehension of Islam’s true nature is delayed by persisting in this artificial distinction called Islamism. That, of course, is the intention.

    1. Yes, he was put on the stand about that, some years ago.

      He said it would offer some (of them) a way out.

      Not something I would agree with.
