Poster promoting Jummah prayer on Capitol Hill for September 25, 2009.
“Our Time Has Come!”
The worshipers were invited to come to pray on Capitol Hill 50,000 strong. 90% didn’t show up. Prior to the event, organizer and president Hassen Abdellah of Dar-ul-Islam of Elizabeth touted, “This is not a protest. Never has the Islamic community prayed on Capitol Hill for the soul of America. We’re Americans. We need to change the face of Islam so people don’t feel every Muslim believes America is the great Satan, because we love America.
The soul of America? We love America?
Really Mr. Abdellah? Then explain this:
Islamoncapitolhill, a site set up to promote the event, charges, “In the name of Allah. The objective of this gathering is to invite the Muslim communities and friends of Islam to express and illustrate the wonderful diversity of Islam. We intend to manifest Islam’s majestic, spiritual principles as revealed by Allah to our beloved prophet, Muhammed in Arabia. Likewise; we intend to inspire a new generation of Muslims to work for the greater good of all people. We shall serve all people, regardless of race, religion or national origin”.
Included on their site is a woman fully decked out in burqa attire. I wonder if the muslimah will have to pray separately in the backyard of Capitol Hill?
Anyone who even has a basic understanding of the Islamist mindset knows full well this objective is a lie, especially given the sentiment of the invited speakers at the event, Sheik Muhammed Jebril and Sheik Ahmed Dewidar (two Egyptians, home based to the Muslim Brotherhood). Atlas Shrugs gives an excellent and thorough analysis of these two ‘bridge builders’. For starters, Jebril attained a degree in sharia law from Al-Azhar University and was named Imam of the extremist mosque Amr Ibn Al’Ass in Cairo in 1988. He is also a university professor in Jordan.
Sheik Dewidar claims that American society is controlled by the Jews, has hinted that the 9/11 attack was an American conspiracy and believes the American media/press is under Zionist control which spreads a negative perception of Islam. (Who needs the western press to give Islam a bad name; Muslims are quite capable of doing this themselves on a daily basis).
And what of event organizer Dar-ul-Islam president Hassen Abdellah? Well, he is also president of The Muslim Brothers Inc., and as an attorney, defended Mahmoud Abonhalima who was charged with the bombing of the World Trade Center-he also defended Faruq Brent who plead guilty to providing material support for Lashkar-e-Taiba. Abdella is quoted to say:
“We are going to the White House , so that Islam will be victorious, Allah willing, and the White House will turn into the Muslim House”.
It’s hard to say why only 5,000 of the faithful showed as opposed to the predicted 50,000 (although some reports indicate as few as 1,000). Regardless, does the United States really want Islamists ‘praying’ on Capitol Hill spurred on by Jew-haters, sharia advocates and terror sympathizers in the very same place Presidents have been inaugurated, or for that matter any place at all?
Islam on Capitol Hill portends: ” The peace, beauty and solidarity of Islam will shine through America’s capital”.
Here’s how Islam’s peace, beauty and solidarity shines throughout the world:
Sydney: Do it yourself terrorist handbook, Provisions of the Rules of Jihad: a Practical Guide to Achieving Martyrdom editor busted;
Brussels: Woman murdered for not wearing veil;
Milan: Muslim attacks Italian politician for burqa stance;
Turkey: Christian tombs desecrated.
Peace, Beauty, Solidarity. Majestic, spiritual, inspirational.
