WICHITA, Kan. – Nearly 10,000 people in Wichita pray to Allah. The Muslim congregation invited Shiekh Monzer Taleb to speak at a fundraiser, but that decision quickly turned controversial.

“It was poor judgement, in my view, on the part of the Islamic Society of Wichita,” said Rep. Mike Pompeo. “I’m glad that they have now changed their minds.”

Congressman Pompeo, a member of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee says Sheikh Taleb pledged his allegiance to a terrorist organization. “Sheikh Taleb has been very clear personally in the things that he has said that he was a part of Hamas,” said Pompeo. “That the destruction of Israel is something that he would like to see happen and he has made no bones about it.”

We asked Hussam Madi, spokesman for the Islamic Society of Wichita, if he had any knowledge of Taleb being linked to Hamas. “We don’t have any knowledge of any connections as of such,” he said.

Madi canceled the event Friday afternoon. “We just took it in best consideration for the safety of our congregation and members,” said Madi. “As well as our next door neighbors, which is the church.”

Madi says they were worried about reports of planned protests outside the mosque by “heavily armed” individuals. “That’s fine, anybody can protest and it’s anybody’s right to say what they want to say,” said Madi. “But I think now we are infringed on to have our event and say what we want to say to our people and congregation on the same token.”

But Pompeo says the Islamic Society of Wichita’s actions are inconsistent with its words. “We often have Islamic leaders who will say they’re against violence but their acts betray that,” said Pompeo. “They play footsie with, they hang out with, they’re affiliated with folks who are bad actors and that’s what this was.”

Madi says he wishes Congressman Pompeo would have called them directly to have the conversation instead of pushing it out through the media for his “political agenda.”

Eyewitness News called Sheikh Taleb to ask him questions about his background and ties to Hamas, but he has not returned our calls yet.


More on the Hamas speaker via Kansas Congressman Takes Stand Against Hamas Fundraiser

A Muslim Brotherhood-linked Mosque has cancelled its fundraiser with a known Hamas supporter, thanks to Congressional pressure.

Monzer Taleb was an unindicted Co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, identified by Federal prosecutors as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a covert U.S. MB organization with a responsibility for supporting and financing Hamas. Taleb was identified in a captured Palestine Committee document as a member of organization.As a member of the Al Sakhra Band, Taleb helped to raise funds for Hamas at fundraisers thrown by the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) and the Islamic Association for Palestine. (IAP), two organizations created by the Palestine Committee to support Hamas, according to evidence provided by the federal government.

When not performing musical hits like, “I am from Hamas” (as documented by videotape entered into evidence as Elbarasse Search 32 Video-F) Taleb worked as an employee for InfoCom, a Texas-based computer company that was also convicted the federal government for material support for Hamas. InfoCom’s chief investor was Palestine Committee leader and now Deputy Chairman of Hamas Mousa Abu Marzook.

Monzer Taleb appears to remain active in the fundraising business, raising funds for Helping Hands for Relief and Development (HHRD), a charity accused of having close ties to a Pakistani organization known to have financed Hamas. Taleb is additionally listed as a member of HHRD-Jordan. Taleb also fundraises for the Islamic Association of North Texas (IANT), which runs Dallas Central Mosque, which was closely associated with the Holy Land Foundation, and has long been identified as having ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

It’s somewhat surprising that ISW bowed to pressure, given its own MB ties.

Founding member of the ISW, Jihad Qaddour, was the long time treasurer of the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group described by federal prosecutors as the “overt arm” of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. According to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, Jihad Qaddour’s name also appears in a Muslim Brotherhood document, identified as Elbarasse Search-4, as a member of the group’s Shura Council.

  1. All they did was invite a like-minded muzzie zealot to speak. Birds of a feather.

  2. I still say “Cheers” for Congressman Pompeo for
    his concern for the citizens of Wichita. The Congressman used the media to inform Kansas, & the
    first thing that Muslims do is whine to the media. This
    Time, it was used against the “conquerors”of the state.The Muslims have no desire to become Americans, they are here to islamitize us.

  3. The Politicians…… in America Are All PANDERERS….They Look To Suck up For Future Votes From ‘Third World Peoples’!

  4. One of a ‘thousand points of light’, to plager a phrase in the war on COLONIZATION of the United States.

  5. The only solution to the propagation of islamist lies and misinformation is its complete and total dissolution and annihilation.   ISLAM IS THE PROBLEM–IT IS ROTTEN TO THE CORE AND MUST BE OUTLAWED AND CONDEMNED IN ALL WESTERN SOCIETIES!   Only then will we begin to understand how true FREEDOM OF RELIGION is supposed to work in a FREE society–and not until!!!        

  6. Islam is far more than a religion. It is also a way of life, a set of customs and if not constrained by outside forces an economic AND governmental system. Islam is not compatible with the Western way of life. It is our right and DUTY to preserve our way of life.

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