Plotting Islam in America on Christmas: MAS-ICNA convention to feat Islamists, terror-linked individuals, and Uighur leader

Updates below.

While most Americans are celebrating Christmas, once again the Muslim Brotherhood-based Muslims at MAS-ICNA will be convening to plan their next steps in implementing the sort of grand jihad of destroying America from within. MAS being the Muslim American Society and ICNA the Islamic Circle of North America. These groups plan their annual conventions on major U.S. and non-Muslim holidays such as Independence Day, and now Christmas.

The annual convention, Islam a Blueprint for Change, being held December 23 – 27 in Chicago, Illinois includes a Christmas day session titled, “Calling for Islam in America: Do we Need to Change our Methodology?” and much more here and more details in pdf:

# Planning for the Change: Setting the Priorities, the Phases and the Steps
# Islam in America: Let Islam Change your Life!
# The Role of the Quran in Changing the Community
# Sahaba Before and After the Change: A Unique Generation
الإسلام والتغيير المنشود: دروس وعبر من التاريخ
منهج القرآن في زيادة الإيمان
ضوابط التغيير المنشود

The lines in Arabic read:
# Islam and the desired change: lessons from history and across
# Method of increasing faith in the Koran
# Controls the desired change

A sampling of the speaker list features a plethora of Egyptian, “Palestinian”, American Islamists, and useful infidel idiots including:

Jamal Said:

Imam at the fundamentalist Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview, Illinois. Said was named in the 2007 racketeering trial of several alleged Hamas fundraisers; news reports dating back as far as 1993 identify Said as a member of Hamas.

The Saudi Arabian government pays part of the salary of prayer leader Sheik Jamal Said, a West Bank-raised disciple of the Muslim Brotherhood who preaches that America is a land of infidels and sin. A most effective fundraiser, Said has transformed the Mosque into a multimillion-dollar operation — having once collected nearly $2 million during a month of Ramadan alone. Most of the money was then funneled to Muslim charities, which in turn sent it overseas, often to terror-related entities.

One of Sheik Said’s fellow Mosque leaders, Muhammad Salah, has also been a major fundraiser for radical Palestinian causes. In 1995, while he served on the Mosque’s Executive Committee, Salah pled guilty to sending $650,000 to fund Hamas military operations and was sentenced to five years in an Israeli prison. Salah was the first American citizen to appear on the FBI’s list of “most wanted” Islamic terrorists.

The Mosque Foundation was once visited in the mid-1980s by Osama bin Laden‘s spiritual mentor Abdullah Azzam, as part of his national tour to recruit supporters for the Afghan war against the Soviet Union; at least three Bridgeview Mosque members enlisted in his effort. (Discover the Networks)

Jamal Badawi:

Badawi was a Board of Directors member of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States and a founding incorporator of the Muslim American Society.

In 2004 Badawi issued a fatwa for Islamonline, outlining six different conditions in which a wife may properly be beaten according to his understanding of “Islamic teaching,” because, he stated, “there are cases … in which a wife persists in bad habits.”

Badawi played a part in a November 2004 fatwa by the International Union of Muslim Scholars decreeing that it was a religious “duty” for all able-bodied Muslims inside and outside Iraq to wage jihad against the American military.

In an IslamOnline Internet forum in June 2006, Badawi justified Muslim suicide bombings as a legitimate tactic of jihad. (Discover the Networks and Militant Islam Monitor)

Zaid Shakir:

“Islam doesn’t permit us to hijack airplanes filled with civilian people,” Shakir once told a Muslim audience. However, “If you hijack an airplane filled with the 82nd Airborne, that’s something else.”

The 82nd Airborne Division’s elite paratroopers fly out of Fort Bragg, N.C., which is part of North Carolina state Sen. Larry Shaw’s district. Shaw is CAIR’s new chairman. (WND)

Mahdi Bray:

He leads the Muslim American Society’s (MAS) political arm, MAS-Freedom…he amassed at least three felony convictions during the 1980s. And, if his recollection of the timing of his conversion to Islam is accurate, it did not straighten him out. He had changed his faith years before becoming a felon. (IPT)

Hatem Bazian:

called for “an intifada in this country” (i.e., the U.S.) and asserted that the sacred texts of Islam require its adherents to “fight the Jews.” (WSJ)

Mark Siljander:

In January 2008, former U.S. Congressman Mark Deli Siljander (R-Michigan) was indicted for money laundering, conspiracy, and obstruction of justice, in connection with charges that he had tried to help the Islamic American Relief Agency finance the Afghan jihad terrorist Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. (Discover the Networks)

Sen. Larry Shaw:

State senator in North Carolina’s 21st District which is also home to Fort Bragg. The same Fort Bragg that another speaker, Zaid Shakir (above) has stated it is OK for Muslims to attack. Shaw is CAIR’s Chairman, and Shakir is a frequent CAIR guest speaker and strategic advisor.

Shaw also mentored a Muslim (now a local MAS director) who was recruited to Pakistan by Osama bin Laden’s mentor.

Rebiya Kadeer:

Chairwoman of the World Uyghur Congress; known supporter of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (a violent terrorist organization); supports Islamic Uighur separatist movement against China (various sources)

Agha Saeed:

…a founding member and leader of the American Muslim Alliance (AMA)…defended Sami Al-Arian, who is in federal lockup as the U.S. leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a terrorist group that has murdered over 100 people in Israel. (Discover the Networks)

Nihad Awad:

CAIR exec and founder. Identified participating at a 1993 Hamas meeting in the United States. “I am in support of the Hamas movement.” (anti CAIR)

Mohamed Rida Beshir:

Featured in the first event was Mohamed Rida Beshir. Beshir is an advisor for Islam Online, a website that showcases live interviews with leaders of Hamas. He has held various positions with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS), two groups connected to the violent Muslim Brotherhood. He is a member of the editorial board and a contributing writer for MAS’s magazine, The American Muslim, which has, in the past, called suicide bombings against Israelis “justifiable.”

Beshir has also written for ISNA’s bi-monthly publication, Islamic Horizons. In a piece he co-wrote for Horizons, entitled ‘Shielding Young Minds,’ he elaborates on “Prophet” Mohammed’s statement about how “children are born pure (Muslim) and that their parents make them Jews, Christians, or Magians (fire worshippers).” Beshir, as well, has authored articles for The Message International, a publication put out by the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), a group that has ties to Pakistan’s version of the Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-e-Islami. (Militant Islam Monitor)

Dean Koldenhoven:

Former mayor of Palos Heights, Illinois  – won an award for preventing his city from buying property for a youth center and instead permitting Muslims to build a mosque. (CPJ)

There are more speakers, and much more info available on each (follow the links), but you get the idea. The feds should be staking out the Chicago Hyatt like the mob at Appalachia. Instead, they’ll probably be participating just like North Carolina state senator Larry Shaw – who doubles as chairman of unindicted co-conspirator CAIR.

While you’re opening gifts and enjoying time with family and friends, others are plotting how to ensure future Christmas days go uncelebrated. This is not to suggest Muslims should celebrate Christmas. However, since Muslims continually assure non-Muslims that Islam holds Jesus Christ in the highest regard and considers him one of their prophets too, why chose Christmas, a day which the majority of Americans revere as one of the holiest days of the year, to host many of the most strident Islamists in America and plot how to Islamize America? Ask yourself. Why?


Not to be outdone, ICNA is holding another annual convention during the Christmas holiday:

The 15th ICNA Southern Islamic Convention will be held on Dec 25-27 (Fri-Sun),2009, at Hilton Atlanta Airport Hotel. Mark your calendars.

Canada is also hosting an Islamic conference during Christmas, December 25-27, 2009. The theme of the 8th annual Reviving the Islamic Spririt (RIS) conference is titled “SOS: Saving the ship of Humanity.” It too features anti-Western, pro-jihad, Islamist speakers including some from above (Zaid Shakir, Jamal Badawi, etc.) and more (Hamza Yusuf, Tariq Ramadan, etc.). Full list of speakers here.

Here is a review of a previous years event:

Those stopped and questioned at the border were returning from the “Reviving The Islamic Spirit” – conference which featured a roster of speakers so troubling that the event could not have been held in the United States because of security concerns.

  1. After Ft. Hood, to remain an Islam history ignoramus and get spun around by Muslim disinfo. artists is getting dangerous. Catch up on all the key facts free online with the Historyscoper, click the url.

  2. wow. absolutely, positively PATHETIC. you dont even know what mas icna is, what they do, and why they do it. It is an annual convention on annual holidays because people wont be working on those days so they can come to it. Do you even KNOW what jiahd IS? Islamists don’t go to the conventions, normal people do. We don’t care to “Islamisize America”, we care to help each other learn how to be good people in America due to stereotypes and haters LIKE THIS ONE exactly. Islam literally means “to make peace”. seriously, this is unbelievably pathetic. get your facts straight before you do something like this.
    Btw “Connie Haynes”, not all muslims are arab, and this is a free country in a free world, full of nasty dictators that think they own the place.

  3. I almost read your entire article. Sorry to say I couldn’t even finish it. My children’s doctor is a Muslim and so is my neighbor and guess what, neither of them have shown me anything but kindness and dignity. Ignorance is dangerous and you are so full of hate that it’s actually scary. I feel sorry for you. We’ve got some serious criminal activity in this country by people who call themselves Christians. I can’t leave my door open at night. Do you leave your door open? And it isn’t because of my Muslim neighbor, its because I’m afraid of being robbed. Why not focus on issues we are faced with daily as a nation rather than sterotyping all Muslims and the religious gatherings they may have.

  4. For those that read the article, please research the names that the discraceful writter commented on and lied about. The writter is nothing but a hate mungering lier that twists facts and provides nothing but lies!!!!

    • Please do follow the links and do much more research – there is much more info to be learned about these individuals and their efforts on behalf of Muslim Brotherhood linked groups… as usual with defenders of jihadists and Islamists, “Love” can’t point to a single twisted fact or lie.

  5. Your comments on me, Dean Koldenhoven are not true.
    Please remove the wrong information. No mosque was ever built in Palos Heights.
    For the facts, Google. to Dean Koldenhoven
    On all those pages, there is also another misinformation blog on there. It states that I kept the Muslims from coming to Palos Heights. This is not true!

  7. For those who are defending islam take a long look at the fruit’s of this polital/religious system. Please take a long hard look. Look at every country which has been taken over by islam. Can you honestly state you see mercy..compassion tolerance? Lebanon is a good example of what happenes when muslims dominate politics. Lebanon had been a properous multicutural country. That all changed when the PLO was kicked out of Jordan and the Lebanese took these refugee’s in. They fed them..gave them jobs and homes and how did these refugee’s repay their benefacters? They turned on christian lebonese..killed them..tortured them..why? Because they were infidels.These ppl. hate..they hate everyone who are not muslims. How can you ppl. not see what is so evident!! These ppl. have perpretated the most vile and obscene acts on human life.Saudi Arabia..many young girls fleeing from burning school were turned back into their school because they had no head veil..they burned to death. Iran..women were jailed for being raped and condemned to death but before they were killed iranian guards were ordered to rape them so it would be prevented from going to heaven. Indonesia..3 little girls on their way to school were set upon by a group of muslim men..and dragged off to be beheaded!! For what?? Because they were christians. Lebanon.. a christian mother’s hand was tied with a knife..muslim man guided her hand so as to sever the neck of her 16 yr son. Ppl.. the obscene and vile acts goes on and on and on. When the hell are you ppl going to take off your blinders and wake up!! When are you going to GET ANGRY AT THIS VILENESS FROM MUSLIMS TOWARDS OTHERS!!!! i HAVEN’T SEEN THE OUTRAGE OVER THE OBSCENE ACTS PERPETRATED BY MUSLIMS TOWARDS OTHERS..JUST THE OUTRAGE THAT WE WON’T TOLERATE THEM!!!!

  10. Of course, they must be deported to their islamics countries….if they are in america they must respect the free speech and the american civil law…there is no doubt! ALETHEA RJ/ BRASIL

  11. 1st, the Convention timing or schedule, falling during holidays such as Christmas, has only to do with the fact that people find ample room in order to organize, meet and actively share the knowledge. It’s apparent you, the author (or simply writer!!) of this resentful article, have missed this simple equation!! The convention has nothing to do with Christmas or any of your accusations, filled with hate, to those scholars. You must be speaking out of a troubled childhood memory, if I may diagnose you properly. And because of these nightmares, you’re blinded from seeing the truth, more like “effigies”.
    Here, you score zero.
    If you are knowledgeable, go make a revision. But if you are an ignorant person, then your words have already proved that.
    Did I mention, you ‘are’ a negative person! But, there’s hope you’ll change someday.

  13. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had a hard
    time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
