Islamist Imam Maulana Shafayat Mohammed interviews the FBI - hosted some 9/11 hijackers and dirty bombers at mosque
December 24, 2008
MIM: Maulana Shafayat Mohammed is the Imam of Dar Ul Uloom Institute and Islamic Training Center. He is an Islamist who masquerades as a moderate. Mohammed's mosque has hosted some of the 9/11 hijackers, dirty bomber wannabes Jose Padilla,Adnan Shukrijumah and two Muslims who were convicted of a plot to bomb several targets in South Florida. Imran Mandhi was convicted in 2003 of planning to use explosives and wage Jihad against the United States and Shueyb Mossa Jokhan, was convicted together with Mandhi for planning to blow up Jewish businesses, FPL electrical facilities and a national guard armory.
Adhan Shukrijumah , is currently the focus of a nation wide manhunt, in the belief he is planning bombing targets in the United States using a radiological device or "dirty bomb" and Padilla is in jail on a terrorism conviction.
On his website Mohammed posted a picture of himself and Ahmed Deedat, the now deceased head of the Islamic Propagation Center in South Africa, which was funded by Osama bin Laden and housed in a building called the Bin Laden Centre. Deedat has boasted that he met Osama bin Laden several times and said the U.S. would always use him as a"scapegoat".http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/365 (Also see below).
Mohammed also made a video tape with Raed Awad,the former Imam of a Florida mosque who converted Jose Padilla. The tape was titled: "Who Is Better Than One Who Invites To Allah? and The Leader & the Follower on the Day of Judgment". Awad was a registered agent of the Holy Land Foundation, which was the subject of a terror funding trial with the defendants being convicted on all 108 counts of funding Hamas. http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/3720
Awad is also linked to Adnan Hassoun, the registered agent of the Benevolence International Foundation which was linked to Al Qaeda. Hassoun is currently in jail on terrorism related charges.Mohammed was also friends with Gulshair Shukrijumah a Wahhabi missionary and radical Islamist with links to the 1993 WTC bombers. Shukrijumah's son, Adnan is wanted by the FBI on charges that he wants to detonate a dirty bomb in the United States He worshipped at Dar Ul Uloom.
Mohammed is head of the Caribbean American Islamic Association which was housed in Gulshair Shukrijumah's Mosque, Masjid Al Hijrah, located in Miramar Florida where Mohammed also lives.
"Khalid Sheik Mohammed claimed that Adnan Shukrijumah was designated as "Mohammed Atta's sucessor ."Gulshair Shukrijumah was sent to America by the Saudis as an 'Islamic missionary' and is a veteran of the "first wave' of the Al Qaeda terrorism network which came to the US in the 1980's to set up operational bases for Jihad. Gulshair Shukrijimah was a character witness on behalf of Clement Hampton El, a Jihadist who became a "Mujahid" holy warrior in Bosnia and was convicted of planning to blow up the Lincoln Tunnel, the U.N., and other N.Y. landmarks." http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/126
Mohammed interviewed two FBI agents together with the director of the Dar Ul Uloom Institute and Islamic Training Center, Abzal Hosein. He posted the interview on Al-Hikmat the website of the Dar Ul Uloom Institute and Islamic Training Center together with pictures. The questions asked were designed to put the FBI on the defensive and epitomised the Islamic mindset.
2. What is the FBI doing to prevent racial profiling by other law enforcement organizations?
3. Muslims feel they are always under scrutiny by the government. What has the FBI done to show this is not true?
Interview With The
Miami - Special Agent
MIM: Awad's ties to international terrorism lead from Florida to Afghanistan, .Awad oversaw Padilla's conversion at the Al Imam Masjid in Florida, is the registered agent for the Hamas terror funding front the Holyland Foundation, http://ict.org.il/organizations/orgdet.cfm?orgid=13and worked together with Adnan Hassoun, the registered agent of BIF, the Benevolence International Foundation, an Al Qaeda funding front, http://www.ustreas.gov/press/releases/po3632.htm to raise funding to send Padilla for ‘religious training in the Middle East' where he ended up joining forces at a terrorist training camp in Afganistan with dirty bomber wannabe Adnan Shukrijumah (also a former Florida resident) .
Hassoun is currently in jail on terrorism charges and Padilla is awaiting trial in Miami , on charges of conspiring to build and detonate a dirty bomb.Hassoun was a member of Awad's mosque and the Birmingham Islamic Society where he is billed as a 'volunteer' Imam and teacher. The website of the BIS carried a link to BIF in 2001.
MIM: An account of Awad's fundraising and domestic abuse activities appeared in a lengthy article in the Miami New Times entitled: "A Tale of Two Mosques" http://www.miaminewtimes.com/issues/2002-08-08/feature.html
José Padilla, whom the Bush administration alleges was plotting to detonate a radioactive bomb in the United States for al Qaeda before his arrest, attended religious classes at the liberal Darul Uloom, but his real spiritual home after converting to Islam in 1992 was Masjid Al-Iman. http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/2389
MIM: Mohammed on jihad from the Dar Ul Uloom da'wa brochure. According to him jihad actually does mean holy war because it entails a "tremendous struggle" and terrorism by Muslims "may be a result of their anger".
WHAT IS Jihad
The word "jihad" does not mean "holy war." Instead, it means the inner struggle that one endures in trying to practice Islam. Some Muslims may say they are going for "jihad" when fighting in a war to defend their faith; but they only say this because they are conceding that it will be a tremendous struggle. There are many forms of jihad (struggle) such as the struggle against self-desire, against a tyrant ruler and against the Devil himself.
Terrorism and unjustified violence are not allowed in Islam. Islam is a religion of peace.
The extreme actions of those who claim to be Muslim may be a result of their anger, ignorance, traditional or cultural beliefs.
MIM: In this video Mohammed justifies jihad and claims that Muslim acts of terrorism are committed by "ignorant" people. He uses the analogy of an American soldier who will be considered a coward if he does not fight back when attacked.
