Well, that didn’t take long. But what’s holding Obama back?

D. C. Watson: Letter To Congress: Islamic Radicals? Or Fundamentalists?

Letter To Congress: Islamic Radicals? Or Fundamentalists?
by D. C. Watson

Office of the Honorable Peter King, United States Congressman, 3rd Congressional District (New York)
Fax: 202-226-2279
June 12, 2011

Re: Scheduled hearings on “Radicalization” of Muslims in America

Dear Congressman King,

On June 20th, 2010 a letter was written to Congress concerning the widely unpopular idea of constructing a mosque in the shadow of the Ground Zero site in New York (a plan that thoughtful Muslims have also rejected). Contained in that letter were quotes from several Islamic religious leaders (Imams) in America:

Imam Amir-Abdel Malik-Ali
Masjid Al Islam mosque, Oakland, CA

“We must implement Islam as a totality (in which) Allah controls every place… the home, the classroom, the science lab, the halls of Congress.”

Imam Abdul Alim Musa
Al Masjid mosque, Washington, D.C.

“If you don’t give us justice. If you don’t give us equality. If you don’t give us our share of America. If you don’t stay out of our way and leave us alone, we’re gonna burn America down.”

Imam Muhammad Al-Asi
Former Imam at the Washington, D.C. Islamic Center

“Now, all our imams, our public speakers, should be concentrating on militarizing the Muslim public … Only carrying arms will do this task.”

Imam Omar Shahin
Tucson, Arizona Islamic Center; President, North American Imams Federation; spokesman for the six ‘Flying Imams’

“A Muslim must try his best to abide by the rulings of Sharia (Islamic law) whenever possible as much as he can. He should not allow himself to be liable to those western laws that contradict the clear-cut Islamic rulings.”

Imam Siraj Wahhaj
Masjid Al-Taqwa mosque. Brooklyn, N.Y

“In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing left will be Islam.”

Imam Zaid Shakir
Former Muslim Chaplain at Yale University

“Muslims cannot accept the legitimacy of the existing American order, since it is against the orders and ordainments of Allah.”

Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf:

“I do not believe in religious dialogue.”

Further review of these statements show that they do not veer far at all from the following comments made by Islamic religious figures overseas or from remarks made by other prominent Muslims operating in the United States:

Imam Anjem Choudary
British Muslim cleric:

One day the flag of Islam will fly over the White House.”

Sheik Ibrahim Mudeiris
Sheikh ‘Ijlin Mosque in Gaza

“We have ruled the world before, and by Allah, the day will come when we will rule the entire world again. The day will come when we will rule America. The day will come when we will rule Britain.”

2) “America will collapse … we consider America to be our no. 1.”

3) “Allah will drown the little Pharaoh, the dwarf, the Pharaoh of all times, of our time, the American president. Allah will drown America in our seas, in our skies, in our land… America will be destroyed.”

Abu Hamza al-Masri
Imam in Britain

“The real weapons of mass destruction are the desire for martyrdom… Half a million martyrdom shaheed is enough for Muslims to control the whole of earth forever. In the end of the day, Islam must control earth, whether we like it or not.”

Abd Al-Rahman Al-Sudayyis
Imam at the Grand Mosque in Mecca

Jews: “The scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the violators of pacts and agreements, the murderers of the prophets, and the offspring of apes and pigs.”

Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed
Syrian-born British Muslim cleric

“We don’t make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians… Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value.”

Ahmad Nawfal
Jordanian who has spoken at rallies held on American soil

“If fundamentalist Muslims stand up, it will be very easy for us to preside over this world once again.”

Abu Bakr
Australian Muslim Cleric

“I am telling you that my religion doesn’t tolerate other religion. It doesn’t tolerate. The only one law which needs to spread, it can be here or anywhere else, has to be Islam.”

Mohamed Elmasry
President of the Canadian Islamic Congress

“Any Israeli over age 18 is a legitimate target for suicide bombers because adult Israelis were required to do military service. They are part of the Israeli army, even if they have civilian clothes.”


Omar Ahmad
Council on American Islamic Relations

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth…”

Ihsan Bagby
Council on American Islamic Relations

“Ultimately, we (Muslims) can never be full citizens of this country … because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country…”

Nihad Awad
Council on American Islamic Relations

“I am in support of the Hamas movement”

Dr. Esam Omeish
Muslim American Society

“You have learned the way, that you have known that the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.”

Shukri Abu Baker (Convicted of funding Islamic terrorism)
Holy Land Foundation

“I swear by Allah that war is deception… We are fighting our enemy with a kind heart… Deceive, camouflage, pretend you are leaving while you’re walking that way. Deceive your enemy.”

Edina Lekovic
Muslim Public Affairs Council

From the July 1999 edition of Al-Talib, the Muslim News magazine at UCLA, when Lekovic was one of the managing editors: “When we hear someone refer to the great mujahid Osama bin Laden as a ‘terrorist’, we should defend our brother and refer to him as a freedom fighter…”

Sami Al Arian (Pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide services to Islamic terrorists)
Former Professor, University of South Florida

“Let us continue the protests. Let us damn America. Let us damn Israel. Let us damn their allies until death. Mohammad is leader. The Qur’an is our constitution. Jihad is our path…”

Hatem Bazian
University of California at Berkeley Lecturer

“Well, we’ve been watching intifada in Palestine, we’ve been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don’t have an intifada in this country?”

Ibrahim Hooper
Council on American Islamic Relations

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future…”

Julio Assad Pino
Associate professor of history at Kent State University in Ohio

Pino considers homicide bombers martyrs, the U.S. Armed Forces butchers, and is or was at one time part of an Internet blog that urges readers to join the Islamic resistance. Also in a Columbus Dispatch piece, Pino described himself as the “most dangerous Muslim in America.”

While this issue is addressed, the dangerous and witless practice of political correctness should be switched off. Unconditionally, the American people have a right to know when any type of threat to their way of life presents itself so that they can prepare to defend it.

Is it a “tiny minority” of “radicals” who have “perverted a great world religion” that all of these leaders in the Islamic communities here and abroad represent, or are they representative of Islamic fundamentalists who are simply adhering to their ideology as it has been prescribed?

As a free society we are a tolerant people. Like everything else, tolerance has its limits, so should rigid, racist, sexist supremacist ideologues with a history of committing violent acts against innocent human beings when they don’t get their way qualify?

If the United States Congress genuinely seeks unfiltered information regarding the issue at hand, it would greatly benefit itself and the nation by shunning the overbearing nonsense dispensed by organizations like the Council on American Islamic Relations, and trading in the crocodile tears shed by the Congressman from Minnesota for the testimony of the individuals listed below, who are capable of answering any lingering questions regarding Islamic scripture, Shari’ah law, and documented historical facts:

Nonie Darwish
Brigette Gabriel
Robert Spencer
Steven Emerson
Wafa Sultan
Daniel Pipes
Walid Shoebat
Aayan Hirsi Ali

In closing, if the opportunity presents itself, please reiterate to your colleagues that this situation should not be viewed as a chance to score cheap political points, and that political affiliation aside, this is an American issue that impacts anyone who appreciates the freedoms offered here.

    “In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing left will be Islam.”
    Keep dreaming Siraj Wahhaj. Democracy first started in Greece 1000 BC and was formalized as a system in Athens about 600 BC. Democracy has had a head start on Islam by 1,600 years and it refuses to die and keeps being resurrected in various forms(often imperfect) through the ages. It will be around long after Islam has crumbled and Islam will crumble.
