DNC’s Islamic prayer leader keynoted “Jihad Summer Camp” — two weeks before 9/11

via The PJ Tatler » DNC’s Islamic prayer leader keynoted “Jihad Summer Camp” — two weeks before 9/11.

The planned Islamic prayer service for this coming Friday as part of the DNC’s 2012 convention has drawn some controversy in recent days, even from some Muslim groups.

One of the points of criticism is that the event is being led by extremist cleric Siraj Wahhaj, who was named by US Attorney Mary Jo White as “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing trial, and appeared as a character witness for the mastermind of the plot, the “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman (prosecuted by our PJ Media colleague, former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy).

Back in 2003, Wall Street Journal reporter Paul Barrett highlighted some of Wahhaj’s extremist statements, noting his advocacy of strict shariah law:

He has told his followers that a society governed by strict Islamic law, in which adulterers would be stoned to death and thieves would have their hands cut off, would be superior to American democracy. Speaking of unnamed forces in the government and media, he has preached, “These people want the destruction of Islam.”

Dr. Daniel Pipes also quotes Wahhaj in an article “The Danger Within: Militant Islam in America“, where Wahhaj has a perverse take on Martin Luther King Jr.s “I Have a Dream” speech:

I have a vision in America, Muslims owning property all over, Muslim businesses, factories, halal meat, supermarkets, all these buildings owned by Muslims. Can you see the vision, can you see the Newark International Airport and a John Kennedy Airport and La Guardia having Muslim fleets of planes, Muslim pilots. Can you see our trucks rolling down the highways, Muslim names. Can you imagine walking down the streets of Teaneck, [New Jersey]: three Muslim high schools, five Muslim junior-high schools, fifteen public schools. Can you see the vision, can you see young women walking down the street of Newark, New Jersey, with long flowing hijab and long dresses. Can you see the vision of an area . . . controlled by the Muslims?”

One other troubling element of the history DNC’s jumah prayer leader is that Wahhaj was the keynote speaker at a “Jihad Summer Camp” just two weeks before the 9/11 attacks. Here’s a flyer for the event:

The actual organizer for the DNC jumah prayer event on Friday, Jabril Hough, has also faced some criticism for his group’s advocacy of Islamic supremacist ideology and extremist views.

For example, earlier this week Charlotte TV station WSOC aired an interview with Hough where they covered some controversial topics, including Hough’s claims that American troops are actually the terrorists in Afghanistan:

Eyewitness News asked Hough about his views on several topics, including the war on terror.

“American troops are actually the insurgents. It’s not the people who live there. The people who live there are defending their country,” Hough said.

Hough does not consider himself to be a supremacist, but believes Muslims have not received the credit they deserve.

“This is a fact: Muslims have visited America prior to Columbus. It was a Muslim who guided Columbus on his voyage to the new world,” Hough said.

He insisted he is not a radical, and said his beliefs are shared by mainstream Muslims.

This is the face of American Islam that the DNC would like to portray as “moderates”. And they have the audacity to call others “Islamophobes”.

Hough also said:

CBN News asked another Muslim convert from North Carolina whether his loyalty came first to Islam or to America.

My loyalty first is to Islam,” answered Jibril Hough.

  1. The powers that be don’t see it or they are embracing.

    • What they should do is print out some of those picture of people who have suffered crucifixions in Egypt and Yemen and put those on posters and hang those out in front of the convention… see how the DNC like those? if you don’t know what i’m talking about all you have to do is go to the WND site and bring up crucifixion videos that will make your day… but beware not for the eyes of children.

  2. Incredible that a speech by Wahhaj bastardizing the hallowed words of Americas greatest African American leader for TOLERANCE and FREEDOM, should be used by those whose idea of Freedom is intolerance and repression Even more incredible is the lack of outrage from the media and populace that this vision of Islam for Americas future , is hardly causing a ripple, Where there should be a tidal wave of revulsion there is only apathy , meanwhile Obama continues his betrayal of the US Presidency unabated, aiding and abetting the enemies of America, to openly plot and bring about her downfall .WOW, what does it take, America? when is enough enough? what GALL from the DNC to showcase such a person ! they have shown their true colours now, its the colour of TREASON! when will you take your country back America?

  5. aussiegirl I have been saying the same thing for years, I have spoken at several events and yet it seems to fall on deaf ears. At first people are outraged but then apathy sets in, and I fear greatly for our nation, and the world.

  6. Thank you for keeping us informed and alert to what is going on. It must be frustrating … I don’t know how the media can ignore all this stuff, but they sure do and the American people are still in the dark! Keep writing please! :)

  8. via AtlasShrugs: Victory! AFDI applauds removal of jumah at the DNC event from DNC website

    I’m not convinced the jummah was cancelled from the information posted thus far at Atlas’ link. It appears the DNC has simply pulled the information about the jummah from their website because of the outroar.

    • it did occur, video showed maybe 50 people there and some news reports falsely stated anywhere from 200-500… will try to get the video up

      and yes apparently the DNC at the last minute tried to pretend like it wasn’t an official event… they want it both ways…
