A Florida Family Association supporter happened to look up at the wall behind the checkout line at the Sam’s Club located at 2021 Brandon Boulevard in Brandon, Florida.  He saw a large photograph of a check made out from Sam’s Club in the amount of $2,500 payable to the Islamic Community of Tampa located in the top left prominent position on the wall.  Florida Family Association snapped a cellphone photograph.   Photographs indicated that no other non-profit organization received more than $500. 

Did Sam’s Club and parent company Wal-Mart know the following when it gave this store’s largest non-profit donation to the Islamic Community of Tampa?  

  • The Islamic Community of Tampa is also known as the Al-Qassam mosque.    The Military Wing of the Palestinian Hamas is called the Al-Qassam Brigade. InvestigativeProject.org reports “The mosque, according to Sami Al-Arian, was named after Izzedin al-Qassam.   Al-Qassam, a Syrian killed fighting the British mandate in 1935, ‘is the main source of inspiration for the Islamic Jihad movement’ Palestinian scholar Ziad Abu Amr wrote in his book, Islamic Fundamentalism in the West Bank and Gaza. ‘The Islamic Jihad’s supporters have elevated him almost to a saintly status.’” 
  • The Hamas rockets fired at Israel are named Qassam rockets.  
  • Sami Al-Arian was indicted in February 2003 on 17 counts under the Patriot Act for allegedly being the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).   In 2006, Al-Arian pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to make or receive contributions of funds, goods or services for the benefit of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and was sentenced to 57 months in prison. 
  • Sami Al-Arian refused to testify before a Federal Grand Jury regarding other Jihad activities.  U.S. District Judge James Moody ruled that Al-Arian must testify. A Virginia District Court held that Sami Al-Arian had no legal basis to refuse to testify. The court held him in civil contempt, and imprisoned him on November 16, 2006.  Sami Al-Arian was released from prison on June 27, 2014 after the United States Department of Justice dropped charges.
  • Sami Al-Arian served as the Chairman of the Islamic Community of Tampa.    
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa has been a member of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and derived their tax exempt status from ISNA.  Sami Al-Arian’s letter written on Islamic Community of Tampa – Masjid al-Qassam stationery stated “We are an affiliated member of the Islamic Society of North America(ISNA) and derive our tax exempt status under 501 C 3 of the IRS code through them.”  Click here for report regarding concerns about ISNA.   
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa hosted a propaganda event for the Council on America Islamic Relations (CAIR Florida) in February 2012.  Click here for a report regarding concerns about CAIR.

Maryland: Indonesia funds $3M purchase of church, conversion to mosque

State Department Muslim rep attends opening and praises allah on U.S. taxpayer’s dime.

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…” ~ Poem that landed Turkish president Erdogan in jail

via the Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. newspaper – IMAAM Center Realizes 20 Year Old Dream.

For hundreds of Indonesian-American families and Maryland Muslims, “grand opening” couldn’t have more meaning than it did on Friday, September 26, 2014.

After two decades, the dream of establishing a masjid and community center in Maryland finally became a reality, and the presidential benefactor who facilitated a three million dollar donation to purchase a church and convert it to a masjid came with a delegation to witness the opening of the Indonesian Muslim Association in America (IMAAM) in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The remodeled church includes a large prayer area and smaller assembly rooms. The grand opening ceremony included juma’ prayer led by founding IMAAM member Firdaus Kadir. President Yudhoyono led his delegation in ‘Asr prayer immediately afterward; the group traveled overnight from New York where President Yudhoyono was attending the United Nations gathering of world leaders.

IMAAM invited representatives from area Muslim organizations. Some area leaders and activists in attendance included All Dulles Area Muslims Association (ADAMS) President Syed Moktadir, ADAMS Board of Trustees Chairman Rizwan Jaka, Dr. Iqbal Yunus from the Fairfax Institute, Imam of the Islamic Society of the Washington Area (ISWA) Faizul Khan, and Sister Asma Hanif, director of the Muslimat An-Nisaa women’s shelter. Numerous diplomats from Muslim countries as well as local interfaith leaders also attended.

As is typical with a visit from a head of state, the invitation only event had tight security which included a large presence from the Montgomery County Police Department as well as federal agents. The ceremony began about an hour before juma’ prayer with lunch served to all guests. A live translation was available to guests via wireless headsets.

After a recitation from the Qur’an, IMAAM President Arif Mustofa thanked Allah and President Yudhoyono for allowing the organization to reach this day. He said the strategic location of the new center – close to Washington DC and Northern Virginia and to the metro system – would allow Muslims and guests from around the region to participate in the activities at IMAAM. “The doors of goodness will be wide open to those who want peace,” said Mustofa.

US Department of State’s Special Representative to Muslim Communities Shaarik Zafar spoke next, congratulating the IMAAM community on the realization of their dream. “The Muslim community is an integral part of America. What can we do to make an impact? Engagement,” said Zafar. He also took the opportunity to comment on the Indonesian President’s recent speech regarding how to deal with the threat of terrorism and extremism. “We fully agree with your speech about using soft power to confront extremist groups like ISIL,” said Zafar, adding that stopping the flow of foreign fighters to Syria and Iraq was critical.

President Yudhoyono’s address began with praising and thanking Allah for this day, and sending salutations on the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), his companions, and the Muslim ummah.

The same ummah ISIS preaches too.

Washington: Infidel protests outside mosque, confronted by dhimmi (video)

Jim Jewell, 52, of West Richland confronts Michael Harmon, 28, of Burbank outside the Islamic Center of the Tri-Cities on Bombing Range Road in West Richland. Harmon, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, is protesting against the Islamic religion. TRI-CITY HERALD

When Harmon confronted Jewell with facts, shattering Jewell’s Islamophilic platitudes, Jewell got desperate and had to resort to Hitler name-calling (related to the race card). It’s guys like Jewell who allowed Hitler then and Muslims today to kill so many. As Harmon was about to say, Muslims joined Hitler’s army and like Hitler, Muslims seek to kill Jews as outlined in the Koran.

via Burbank man protests outside Islamic Center in West Richland | The News Tribune.

Harmon said he wasn’t protesting specifically against the Islamic center. He only recently learned there was a mosque in the Tri-Cities.

“It just blew my mind,” he said. “I would expect to see that in Seattle, but not here.”

There might be peaceful Muslims, but they are not fully following the Quran, Harmon said.

Harmon said he contacted West Richland police to make sure it was OK for him to carry a concealed weapon while he protested.

Harmon was allowed to carry his gun in a holster and protest, but police made sure he knew he couldn’t walk into the street or cause a disruption, said Sgt. Duane Olsen.

“He’s got his First Amendment rights, like anybody else,” Olsen said.

Kudos to the police for respecting Harmon’s rights.

Harmon said he heard from several passersby — some supportive, some opposing his views. He said he got in to one verbal confrontation with a Navy veteran who told him that Muslims are good people.

“I just wish everybody would be more supportive of the troops and realize this is still going on,” Harmon said.

Olsen received two calls complaining about Harmon’s protest. He said one caller was cordial and the other hung up after being told that police couldn’t arrest Harmon for a hate crime.

“I explained to him that he wasn’t committing a crime,” Olsen said. “He was emphatic that he was.”

Harmon, who protested for about an hour Monday, said he might return to protest Tuesday and that he plans to picket other Tri-City Islamic facilities.


For future protests, Harmon should reference Naveed Haq, son of a founder of the Islamic Center of the Tri-Cities. Haq was a jihadist who attacked a Seattle Jewish center killing a woman and wounding five others. via ‘Soldier of Islam’ found guilty in ’06 Seattle Jewish center jihad

A King County jury found a 34-year-old Muslim man guilty of charges including aggravated first-degree murder Tuesday in the 2006 shootings at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.

In addition to the murder verdict, which carries an automatic life sentence, jurors found Naveed Haq guilty of five counts of attempted first-degree murder, one count of unlawful imprisonment and one count of malicious harassment, the state’s hate-crime law.

Haq opened fire in the federation offices on July 28, 2006, killing employee Pamela Waechter, 58, and wounding five others.

“He wanted to kill these women,” senior deputy prosecutor Erin Ehlert told jurors in her closing argument Thursday.

Prosecutors also introduced as evidence audio recordings from 10 phone calls that Haq placed to his family after his arrest. In the calls, recorded by the King County Jail, Haq told his mother he was “a soldier of Islam.”

The mosque protested above was founded by the jihadi’s father:

Haq’s father, Mian Haq, was a founding member of the Islamic Center in this south-central Washington town in 1979 and has been active in the community for decades…

Haq’s parents…moved to the United States from Pakistan in the 1970s

Authorities say Naveen Haq, 30, may have planned his attack on a Seattle Jewish center from the Tri-Cities area of southeastern Washington.

Update: More dhimmi’s plan to stand with the sharia adherents: Students counter Burbank man’s Islamic protest.

Patriots need to support Harmon and join him. He has a Facebook page if anyone has a link.

Maryland Mosque Already Tax-Exempt now Getting DHS / FEMA Taxpayer Grants for Security

Security from what? From being investigated for preaching jihad? via U.S. Mosque Already Tax-Exempt now getting DHS / FEMA Taxpayer Grants for Security – Walid Shoebat.

It appears that Muslim Brotherhood-linked institutions in the U.S. have found yet another way to benefit from taxpayers, in addition to being tax-exempt. The latest example comes courtesy of the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB), which is receiving tens of thousands of dollars in grant (taxpayer) money courtesy of a program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), which is an arm of the DHS.

A man who has been identified as a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator of the Obama administration by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) is Mohamed Elibiary who until recently, had been an adviser to DHS. There is no evidence to suggest that Elibiary had any role in the program that allows grant money to go to mosque security. However, as a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator of DHS, there’s equally no evidence that he would object to such a program; such evidence suggests he’d support it. In fact, his tweets were quite pro-Muslim Brotherhood as Shoebat.com reported. The grant program also further illustrates just why infiltration of the U.S. government by the Brotherhood is so problematic.

ISB, which already possesses 501(c)(3) status has found a new way to double-dip (h/t Pamela Geller):

ISB will be receiving $74,675.00 which will go towards upgrading, enhancing and adding to our security infrastructure. Over the next several months you will see contractors on-site conducting these security enhancements.

As Cultural Jihad points out, a Muslim Brotherhood front group that is already tax-exempt has been calling on other groups / mosques with similar status to take advantage of this additional revenue stream:

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 4/17/14) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is urging mosques and Muslim institutions nationwide to consider applying for funds available through the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP).

The program is designed to assist nonprofit organizations that are vulnerable to terrorist attacks with procuring and installing security equipment to enhance safety.

The practice of more seasoned Muslim organizations in the U.S. serving as a resource for newer ones and start-ups is a common practice, as Shoebat.com has reported. While Elibiary was an adviser to the DHS, Salam al-Marayati and Mohamed Magid head tax-exempt Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in MPAC and ISNA respectively.

Tax-exempt status being granted to highly questionable Islamic entities in the U.S. is not new. As Shoebat.com reported, many of these institutions were granted such status during the Bush administration. In fact, the signature of none other than Lois Lerner is at the bottom of several of the approval letters.

One such way to remedy these problems involves passage of a bill introduced by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) earlier this year. It calls for the Muslim Brotherhood to be identified as a terrorist organization and all of its affiliated groups to be put on watch or otherwise sanctioned.

Under such a scenario, it’s conceivable that all Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations and mosques – and there are many – with tax exempt status would lose that status as well as not qualify for security grants.

Obama sends ‘highest praise’ to Oklahoma beheader’s mosque, remains silent on beheading

Beyond the pale. Barrack Hussein Obama truly despises America. Not only did he single out the beheader’s mosque, he sent a DHS rep to deliver his praise.

via Oklahoma Muslims receive special praise from White House officials | KFOR.com.

OKLAHOMA CITY –  Oklahoma Muslims marked the end of the yearly pilgrimage to mecca with communal prayer and celebration called Eid Ul-Adha on Saturday.

Leaders of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City say it’s been a tough month for Muslims here in Oklahoma after being associated with the beheading at Vaughan foods in Moore.

But the Muslim community received the highest form of praise from the White House for their hard work in helping rebuild the Moore community after a destructive tornado tore through the city in 2013.

Today, an official from Washington D.C. flew in to Oklahoma to present a special thank you to the Muslim congregation.

He read a message from President Barrack Obama, extending warm greetings from the American people during the Muslim holiday.

Obama does not speak for the American people.

“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” President Barack Obama said.

The Imam, the leader of the prayer service, stated during his sermon that the Muslim faith has been called a “cancer that needs to be cut off from the American society.”

The imam is a member of the Hamas-linked, FBI-banned, DOJ-named co-conspirator to the largest terror financing conviction in history, fed judge-named Hamas organization…CAIR!

Why isn’t KFOR telling viewers about that? Instead they are spreading misinformation and sound like a paid infomercial for the mosque that preaches jihad. Shame on KFOR.

CAIRdiorama32

There is overwhelming evidence that the beheading in Oklahoma had everything to do with Islam including the killer’s postings on social media, his shouting of Islamic phrases as he beheaded a woman and attempted to behead another, his request for a Muslim lawyer and desire to be called Mohammed to name a few. He also was a member of the mosque Obama praised this weekend.

 

CAIR’s intimate links with Oklahoma beheader’s jihad-preaching mosque exposed (video)

We told you previously that the imam of the beheader’s mosque was a member of CAIR. Breitbart news has found intimate ties between the two. via Sermons Reveal Close Ties Between Muslim Brotherhood Group CAIR and Beheader’s Mosque.

Breitbart News has found evidence of inextricable bonds between the Oklahoma City Mosque and the group CAIR (Council On American-Islamic Relations). During his September 19, 2014 sermon, Imam Imad Enchassi referred to CAIR Oklahoma City Executive Director Adam Soltani as someone who “doesn’t do anything without consulting me.”

After Alton Nolen’s [aka Jah’Keem Yisrael] beheading of an innocent woman, an unidentified man addressing the congregation said that “CAIR is handling this,” while showing no remorse and making no mention of the victim of the brutal murder.

Breitbart News has also learned that the Imam of the mosque did not truthfully reflect the words of Oklahoma State representative John Bennett in his criticism of Islamist ideologies. The Imam falsely claimed that Bennett had described “American Muslims” as a “cancer that need to be eliminated.”

Shortly after Bennett’s comments criticizing Islam, both CAIR Director Adam Soltani and ISGOC Imam Imad Enchassi had claimed just days prior to the beheading that Muslims and their children had been receiving death threats from Oklahoma residents; going as far as to say that Muslims and their children were under threat of being beheaded and were no longer safe in Oklahoma. Breitbart News has learned that the Imam claimed top FBI officials were called into the mosque to investigate claims of death threats against Muslims.

Below are the highlights of the past two Khutbahs at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City:

Sermon Before Beheading, 9/19/2014:

Words believed to be spoken by Imam Imad Enchassi.

“The last two weeks, brothers and sisters in Islam, our din (religion) has been attacked.”

“We believe in freedom of expression. We believe in freedom of speech, but Subhan Allah (Glorious is God), this politician went above and beyond the freedom of speech. The prophet was attacked, many of the prophets of Islam Subhan Allah were attacked. But this particular politician went above and beyond… We are not passive Subhan Allah.”

“We have death threats against the two faces that aren’t shown on TV. and then i get some people saying: ‘why are you doing that for. You should be wise.’ This is not wisdom, this is cowardness.”

“Brothers and sisters of Islam, slaves and servants of Allah. John Bennett… Two weeks ago he put on his Facebook that you should be worried of all American Muslims, enticing violence against us. We went the right way. Soltani of CAIR doesn’t do anything without consulting with me…”

There you have it. Soltani of CAIR doesn’t do anything without consulting the imam. CAIR works at the behest of the mosque.
