NYPD Muslim Chaplain and NYU Hosting Jihadi Propagandist Conference

Siraj Wahhaj has infiltrated the highest echelons of our secular institutions.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg welcomed to City Hall an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, later claiming he didn’t know the radical Muslim cleric had been invited.

Siraj Wahhaj has called the FBI and CIA the “real terrorists,” defended the convicted World Trade Center attack plotters and said his hope is that all Americans will become Muslim.

The Executive Director of the ICNYU, Khalid Latif – who invited and or approved these two pro-jihad, anti-American speakers – is also the NYPD’s Muslim chaplain, and on CAIR-NY’s Board of Directors. His sister is also a CAIR-NY member. Now Wahhaj and Zaid Shakir are the top two confirmed speakers.

ICNYU Conference 2010: Building Momentum in Mainstream Culture
Co-Sponsored by Islamic Relief
The Islamic Center at New York University invites you to hear leading American Muslims engage the pressing challenges of our present and the great potentials of our future.  Over a course of two days, thinkers, scholars, leaders and artists will debate, discuss and explore our embrace of the mainstream.  Hosted in New York, this first of an annual series will become a critical moment on our calendars, a conference of introspection, dynamic exchange, fresh ideas and spiritual reconstruction.

Zaid Shakir is just as bad. devout 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.” Shakir wrote of Israel in July 2006:

BOYCOTT ISRAEL (http://tinyurl.com/ot8m7e)

The following essay, Islam: Religion or Ideology, was written three weeks ago, before the government of Israel began its brutal, murderous assault on the civilian population of Lebanon, allegedly in response to the capture of two Israeli soldiers by fighters affiliated with the Lebanese Islamic organization, Hizbollah. This latest Israeli campaign only underscores the price the people of the Middle East have paid owing to the triumph of Zionism. That price has been high indeed, and as Lebanon is reduced to bloodstained rubble, the price only escalates.

[…] However, in my opinion, the greater price lies in how the triumph of Zionism threatens to transform mainstream Judaism from a religion characterized by the loftiest of moral codes, to one that is willing to sacrifice its morality on the altar of political expediency.
[…]

The following is part of an effort by this writer to warn Muslims against allowing the reduction of our religion by similar political imperatives. We should never hope to see the day when, if possessing the requisite firepower, Muslims would visit upon the civilian population of Israel the sort of savage violence we see decimating the innocent civilians of Gaza and Lebanon.

Islam: Religion or Ideology

And then there’s this chatter on an Islamic forum back in 2006:

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.

Come to Connecticut USA and visit Masjid Al-Islam in New Haven and see for yourself the wahhabi legacy left by Zaid Shakir at this place. He single handedly did a lot to promote wahhabism in the USA and especially Connecticut, and thus far he has not yet recanted any of it.

His wahhabi influenced writings are still published in a local deobandi wahhabi monthly publication titled “Iqraa”.

Zaid Shakir may be trying to “turn a new page” and come off a sufi or something, but he has yet to do work to reverse the wahhabi ideas that he worked hard to spread.

NYPD’s Muslim chaplain hosting unindicted co-conspirator to ‘93 WTC bombing — By Creeping Sharia

The Islamic Center at NYU is hosting its 2010 conference titled, Building Momentum in Mainstream Culture (co-sponsored by Islamic Relief).

The top two confirmed speakers are Siraj Wahhaj and Zaid Shakir. A little background:

Siraj Wahhaj:

> unindicted co-conspirator to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing
> testified as a character witness for convicted terror mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman
> states Islam commands jihad of the true soldiers of Allah – listen to a Wahhaj speech
> has stated:

“…And [Allah] declared ‘Whoever is at war with my friends, I declare war on them.’ … Your true friend is Allah, the messenger, and those who believe…. Hear what I’m telling you well. The Americans are not your friends … The Canadians are not your friends … The Europeans are not your friends. Your friend is Allah, the Messenger and those who believe. These people will never be satisfied with you until you follow their religion …”

> In a 1992 address to an audience of Muslims in New Jersey, Wahhaj expressed his desire to see Muslims seize control of the United States and replace its constitutional government with an Islamic caliphate. “If we were united and strong,” Wahhaj said, “we’d elect our own emir [leader] and give allegiance to him…. [T]ake my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.” (source)

Zaid Shakir:

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.

The Executive Director of the ICNYU, Khalid Latif – who invited and or approved these two pro-jihad, anti-American speakers – is also the NYPD’s Muslim chaplain, and on CAIR-NY’s Board of Directors. His sister is also a CAIR-NY member. Read the rest of this entry »
