Calif: Muslim college opens teaching sharia law, founder called for jihad on 82nd Airborne

Wake up America. Wake up your elected officials, and elect new ones. Muslim College Opens in US With Hopes — and Suspicions. Hopes of spreading sharia law, and they start by applying sharia at the college where men and women are segregated.

Zaytuna College is a new four-year college in Berkeley, California. Zaytuna is seeking to become the first accredited Muslim college in the United States. The name comes from the Arabic word for olives.

The process of full accreditation could take several years. That will make it easier for students to get financial aid, and to have their education recognized by employers and other schools.

Zaytuna held its first classes this summer — intensive study of Arabic to prepare for classes in the fall. Men and women sat on opposite sides of the auditorium. Most of the men had beards and wore skull caps. Most of the women covered their hair with scarves.

Zaytuna currently offers two majors, a choice of Islamic law and religion or Arabic language.

Imam Zaid Shakir is a professor and co-founder of Zaytuna. He was born in Berkeley.

There are millions of American Muslims. But the imam says most of the teachers of Islam in America received their training in other countries. He says Islam has never become rooted in any land until that land had its own Islamic scholars.

If it becomes a madrasa or a college of inculcation only, that could be hugely problematic.”

Zaid Shakir wants Islam rooted in the land (the U.S.) like it has been rooted in other countries that Islam has conquered. Since every country where Islam is now dominant has been conquered by Islamic jihad. Shakir is a proponent of jihad, as WND noted, Zaid Shakir Exhorts Islamic faithful to target planes carrying ’82nd Airborne’:

Radical Islamic cleric Zaid Shakir, a frequent guest speaker at CAIR events, tells his Muslim audiences: “Jihad is physically fighting the enemies of Islam to protect and advance the religion of Islam. This is jihad.”

Acceptable targets of jihad, he says, include U.S. military aircraft.

“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.

From our post last year on the same topic and the other founder of the Islamist college:

…some background information on Sheik Hamza Yusef from Discover the Networks:

Born as Mark Hanson in 1959 to parents who were American academics, Hamza Yusuf converted to Islam at age seventeen. Today he may be the West’s most influential Islamic scholar. With a reputation for hostility toward the United States and Israel, he commonly appears as a guest speaker at events organized by various chapters of the Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada.

On September 9, 2001 – just two days before the al Qaeda attacks against America – UCLA’s Al-Talib magazine co-sponsored a benefit dinner titled “Justice for Imam Jamil Al-Amin” (aka H. Rap Brown) at UC Irvine. Al-Amin had recently been convicted of murdering an Atlanta police officer who was attempting to arrest him. Among the speakers at this benefit was Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, who spoke about the fate he foresaw for America:

They [Americans] were ungrateful for the bounties of Allah, and so Allah caused them to taste fear and hunger. That is one reason and, I would say, that this country is facing a very terrible fate.

On the other founder – another convert from Berkeley, California:

I would like to point out that Zaid Shakir is a confirmed wahhabi. Do not purchase or read any books written by the wahhabi Zaid Shakir or listen to any lectures by the wahhabi Zaid Shakir.

More from DtN:

Shakir is known for having expressed his desire to see the United States eventually become — “not by violent means, but by persuasion” — a Muslim country ruled by Islamic law. “Every Muslim who is honest would say, I would like to see America become a Muslim country,” he said.

In Shakir’s view, organizations such as Hamas and al Qaeda are pursuing manifestly legitimate objectives.

It appears that Zaytuna, where most of the teachers are American born converts to Islam, is competing with Al Maghrib for students and to become the first accredited college in the U.S. Al Maghrib, if you recall, is the online Islamic training website that raised money for Hamas.

  1. You may not want my personal opinion but to me jihad is non sense in today’s current world; however, I would like to see an attempt to hijack an aircraft full of my fellow troopers. It seems like the entire world is now fighting for freedom from religion.

    • Clay, you are fighting against what is in front of your face.
      I bet you were raised in a Christian enviroment, and believe in Freedom of Religion, as I was.
      You have to understand Islam is a pagan worship of a self proclaimed God. It’s fine for Muslims, as that’s what their level of society is, at this point in time.
      However, Islam is a dictorial control of nearly every moment of a muslim’s life.
      As for Jihad, it’s not nonsense, but what Radical Muslims believe in, and is very serious to them, and to the USA, it’s a big threat.

      You make an error when you say, “… now fighting for freedom from religion”.

      Islam is NOT a Religion, as I said, it’s a dictorial set of rules for minute by minute control of Muslims. Incudes instructions for many things that are outside religion. It bestows no love, is full of how you will be punished, how you will punish non believers, how you can lie to anyone, as long as it benefits Islam’s advance in strength.
      Why don’t you try to do some research? The Koran is available on the net, or sites will give you the correct infomation. Just know in advance that many moderate verses are contridicted by later, more violent verses.
      Combine Islam and Sharia Law, and you have to this day, honor killings of women and children, men are allowed to beat their wives and children, and stoning to death for some of the most minor reasons, and on and on.
      Islam will be the dominate force, and religion as we know it will not be allowed to survive. You will be a Muslim, or suffer a 2nd class exsistance, if allowed to esist.
      That’s it. That’s what we will have here in America. It’s already started. Minnesoto is jokingly refered to as an Ismalic State, right now. There are 26 Islam training camps in America, right now. Obama sends money to build/repair Mosques in Europe and the middle East. The Dept of Justice files lawsuits on behalf of Islam complaints about predjudice. Our money supports Muslim orginizations woldwide.
      On and on and……………

  2. I have a better idea, instead of building new schools devoted to cults, let’s use that time & money to deport any and all people who are not willing to follow the laws of the land, suspected or proven.

  3. Three founders of Zaytuna College:

    Hamza Yusuf, born Mark Hanson in Walla Walla, Washington, U.S. (1960)
    Occupation: Islamic scholar and Teacher
    Religion: Sunni Islam

    Zaid Shakir, born Ricky D. Mitchell in Berkeley, California, U.S. (1956)
    Occupation: Islamic Scholar and Author
    Religion: Sunni Islam
    Interviewed by Bill Moyers on PBS, in 2007

    Dr. Hatem Bazian is originally from Nablus in the West Bank and attended high school in Amman, Jordan.
    Bazian is a Palestinian-American academic at the University of California, Berkeley.
    Bazian has been accused of anti-semitism.

  4. I find it quite alarming that many Americans such as Clay Ainsworth don’t understand what Sharia Law is. It is a system by which every human thought and action is governed. It is spreading at an alarming rate throughout Europe and now the US. It’s goal is to establish a world-wide Caliphate as the Koran requires. Islam is not a religion. It is a political system which is anathema to our laws.

    The US Constitution is not a suicide pact.

  5. I’m afraid the whole Muslin deal for me, has now come down to allowing rats and mice in your house. The mice, (Moderate Muslims) don’t eat much, and stay out of your way, and are sort of cute.
    As their numbers grow, you are eaten out of your house, and it’s taken over, with no harm to you, but you still lost your house.
    The rats (Radical Muslims), aren’t very cute, and will scare and intimidate you, be aggressive, brazenley not get out of your way, and could eat you while you sleep, with massive numbers attacks.
    All the while, you want the rats and mice to leave, but you keep giving them food to eat, won’t harm them, make things easy for them, (spending lots of money for them, and staying out of their way) You do everything for them, as you are so stupid to not care or respect you self.
    Again you’ll lose your house, but MOST LIKELY WILL BE DEAD in the bargin.

    • and with few exceptions Republicans are right their aiding and abetting as well… there are a very select few who consistently stand up and actively speak on the threat

      the Kagan vote is a clear example, and we’ll see the same outcome on immigration

    • Sluta med att blanda in värnlösa råttor och möss i detta ämne. Råttor och möss är förtryckta och hemlösa små djur,dom skall få samma rättigheter som andra individer på denna jord. Det har dom rätt till! Ni kristianister är inte bättre än islamister,för ni förtrycker råttor och möss.

      Rats and mice have rights!!!

        • ANNA SAID: (in Swedish) Stop with the involvement of helpless rats and mice in this topic. Rats and mice are oppressed and homeless small animals, they must have the same rights as other individuals on this earth. There they are right to! You Christians lard is better than the Islamists, because you repress rats and mice.

      • Anna: You do realize he was just using the rats and mice figuretively speaking, right? And, since u clearly understood English, why was it necessary to write ur response in Spanish? Anyone who promotes or encourages Shariah Laws also wants women to be a man’s CHATTEL! Is that YOU, ANNA? You would like to be oppressed and denied ur rights as an American woman? Really?

    • what does that stop? nothing – it just stops accreditation but you can be sure that committee is already being wooed and infiltrated – just like the GZ mosque

  7. Mark Hanson, born American, and now calling for attacks on our country and military is guilty of High TREASON and should be executed.

  8. There’s the real issue. It’s within our own culture. I’ll admit that having and raising children is costly and burdensome. However, it has been an agenda of numerous Islamic groups for years to grab and populate whichever area is otherwise depopulating and outpopulate the non-immigrant populations. They have been doing this in Europe, and unless America changes course they will do it here too.

    @ Carolyn. It’s a surprise to me that Sharia hasn’t become the equivalent of the name Voldemort in Harry Potter, or the word that makes liberal blood freeze. Sharia is vehemently against about everything cultural liberalism stands for, and honestly won’t favor the liberalism of this nation, or any European nation, should they gain the power.

  9. I do not understand Sharia, and probably never will. All of these Muslims calling for jihad on this group, and that group. If the Islamic nation does not support the terrorist activities, then why not call for jihad on the terrorists? Or do they secretly support terrorist activity as long as it fulfills the Korans wishes of a world-wide Caliphate

    • because they are not opposed to what we call terrorist activities

      even the so-called moderate muslims know that the jihadists pave the way for the non-violent muslims

      and if they start denouncing the jihadists they will be called apostates and subject to death – we’ve seen this over and over

  10. @ creeping…….so because of fear of being called apostates and subject to death, Muslims do support jihadists? Who is judge, and jury in these matters, who says to moderate Muslims, ” You are an apostate, and should be put to death for not supporting jihadists.”

    • no ainsworth – 1 + 1 does not equal 3 so please don’t conflate what we’ve said with your own thoughts

      we did not say muslims do not support jihad because they fear death

      muslims who support jihad do so of their own volition…often citing the Koran and the acts of Muhammid as examples and justification

      there are also muslims who don’t agree with the requirement of jihad, yet fear being labeled apostates and possibly being killed and therefore remain silent

      until muslims fear being silent more than they fear speaking out against jihad and killing of their own people and non-muslims, then the Koranic imperative of jihad will remain and not much will change

  11. I say line up all of those who voted for the muslim terrorist, shave their heads, put a brand on their foreheads and then ship them to mexico! If we get rid of demon-crats we might get our country back on the right track!

    it figures that the mentally ill in BEZERKLEY CALIFORNIA would allow a muslim terrorist institution to be built and we probably support it with our tax dollars. I hope California gets hit with a really BIG ONE!!!

  12. @ creeping…you still have not answered my question. Who is the responsible party for condemnation of moderate muslims for speaking out against jihadists? I am not a muslim; however, I am trying to learn more about Islam so I can form my opinion based on education, and not emotion. I only want to understand what is going on, and learn why muslims do not take some action against groups like Al-Qaeda. I do appreciate the information you have provided so far. So please just answer my question. Who is responsible for labeling muslims apostates, and carrying out their death sentence?

  13. I have failed to say”Thank You,” for your dedication. I whole-heartedly support what your blog represents. I just want to be more educated about the whole issue we face…Creeping Sharia…..again, I say,”Thank You.”

  16. As an American female Viet Nam Service Veteran, it offends me to even think that any Politician, or someone in the Judicial systom would try to compromise our Constitution by allowing any influence of Muslim’s Shariah Law. This still a Christian Country. Even if our goverment is trying to downgrade that fact with too much ‘politically correct’ crap. It wasn’t so long ago that women in this country couldn’t vote, or own land, or inherit, or have an education equal to a man’s! And, the Muslim’s really believe that we would accept being some man’s ‘chattel’ again? They must have rocks in their heads 4 intelligence if they believe that 4 one moment. I went into the Military with the thought to serve my Country. I was verbally and emotimally abused by some of the men who believed that women shouldn’t be in the Military. I fought 4 my rights then, and, I will again if I have to. Down with Shariah Laws!

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