January 26 at TC Williams High School, Alexandria, Virginia h/t groundzeromosque

Shaker Elsayed (born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1951) is a dual citizen of Egypt and the US, and has been the Imam of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, since June 1, 2005. Elsayed also served as an unofficial spokesman for the family of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was convicted of plotting to assassinate President Bush. Abu Ali worshipped at Dar al-Hijrah.

Far from the first time Shaker el Sayed has urged Muslims to wage jihad:

…at a [2002] joint conference sponsored by the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), El-Sayed had this to say (in mixed Arabic and English) about suicide bombers:

El-Sayed (Arabic): And about the subject unfairly named suicide bombers, homicide bombers, or murderers, or killers. Our answer to this issue is simple. To decide that this man is a martyr or not a martyr, it is a pure religious matter. Nobody who is not Muslim has any right to decide for us, we the Muslims, whose is a martyr or another. We as Muslims will decide that. It is in-house business.

The Islamic scholars said whenever there is an attack on an Islamic state or occupation, or the honor of the Muslims has been violated, the Jihad is a must for everyone, a child, a lady and a man. They have to make Jihad with every tool that they can get in their hand. Anything that they can get in their hand and if they don’t have anything in their hand then they can fight with their hand without weapons.

And the origins of his group MAS? via The Chicago Tribune’s A rare look at secretive Brotherhood in America

Shaker Elsayed, a top MAS official, says the organization was founded by Brotherhood members but has evolved to include Muslims from various backgrounds and ideologies.

“Ikhwan [Brotherhood] members founded MAS, but MAS went way beyond that point of conception,” he says.

But he says that MAS, like the Brotherhood, believes in the teachings of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna, which are “the closest reflection of how Islam should be in this life.”

“I understand that some of our members may say, `Yes, we are Ikhwan,'” Elsayed says. But, he says, MAS is not administered from Egypt. He adds, “We are not your typical Ikhwan.”

Update: John Rossomando at IPT links in and writes:

His name also appears in a 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document detailing the group’s plan to wage a non-violent civilization jihad to destroy “Western civilization from within.”

  1. wow – where is the Muslim Brotherhood front groups and their interfatih useful idiots stopping this guy from preaching this crap? AND how about those other 84.5% of the mosques from doing it too?!?! I can feeeeel the tolerance from crapslam…. or maybe the cold winds of war they are trying to incite. I wrote in another post about the USA deporting the slavers in Colorado that they should also be deporting the MB and imams before they realize they need to lie about being imams and members of the MB. And viola – one proves my point!

  2. We are always told that there is a ‘lone wolf syndrome’… well, that is a joke – it is called ‘individual jihad’ so the pukes who call others to die for allah can sit back in safety and lie about it all.

  3. The most evil force ever thrust upon mankind is ISLAM. All scumbag bottom-feeders.

    No sane person on the planet could be a Muslim.

  4. The “facilitator” of this event has replied to so-called “Malicious” soundbites of this event that do not include his “DISCLAIMER”. A quote from his reply makes clear that this was an unfortunate statement by Sheikh Shaker. He also admits that it is true that Sheikh Shaker was talking about ARMED struggle while trying to distance his organization from Sheikh Shakers comments. Quote from his lengthy comment below.

    ” The Sheikh did unfortunately advocat that Ethiopian Muslims wage an armed struggle to assert their civil liberties and I as the facilitator did mention a disclaimer saying that the Sheikh didn’t mean to condone an armed uprising and he did node in agreement as he was leaving the podium. Of course, those who posted the video clip deliberately left out my disclaimer to serve their malicious purpose.”

    Even the event facilitator knows that Sheikh Shaker’s comments were a problem…… perhaps they should not invite such a man to be a guest speaker? Just saying…..

  5. This IMAM needs to be arrested and charged with SEDITION and insiting JIHAD IN THE U S A. His dual citizenship needs to be REVOKED . NOTHING BUT ISLAMIC SLOP COMING FROM HIS FOUL MOUTH!!!

  6. The event facilitator has replied to anyone posting video clips of this speech that do not included his “DISCLAIMER”. A quote from his response to Sheikh Shaker’s comments can be seen below.

    “The Sheikh did unfortunately advocat that Ethiopian Muslims wage an armed struggle to assert their civil liberties and I as the facilitator did mention a disclaimer saying that the Sheikh didn’t mean to condone an armed uprising and he did node in agreement as he was leaving the podium.

  7. Reblogged this on DeborahBidwell's Blog and commented:
    ok you have your arms, and you are suppose to be a peaceful religion but you have to be armed to protect and promote your religion?? you need to make the Infidels learn to leave you alone?? you are a terrorist because you are calling for Jihad, not for being here. the Imams are the ones telling their followers that they need to have jihad on us, why is he even allowed in the US if he was involved with the attempted or planned for assassination attempt on Pres. Bush??
