Video Shows Mosque That Hosted Wellesley Public School Students Also Sponsored Hate Speakers, Says Americans for Peace and Tolerance
WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) today released additional disturbing videos demonstrating the radical nature of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which runs the controversial Saudi-funded Roxbury Mosque in Boston – the same mosque that hosted the Wellesley Middle School field trip, during which students were taught false information about religious warfare and the treatment of women in Islamic history. During the trip some of the school boys joined in the Muslim prayer ritual, said Dr. Charles Jacobs of Americans for Peace and Tolerance.
The Muslim American Society gives classes at the Islamic center through its educational subsidiary – the Islamic American University. The IAU is chaired by the controversial clerics Yusuf Qaradawi and Jamal Badawi, former and current trustees of the Roxbury Mosque, respectively.
Qaradawi preaches to Muslims that Jews should be exterminated, homosexuals should be executed, and Muslim men may beat their wives.
Badawi tells his students that all governments which aren't ruled by Islamic law are wicked.
In 2009, the MAS brought the hate preacher Yasir Qadhi. In his lectures, Qadhi has denied the Holocaust (for which he recently apologized), and has claimed that Jews and Christians are theologically filthy.
Qadhi's teachings have been linked to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 2009 Christmas Day bomber, who had taken three seminars from Qadhi's organization before his failed attack.
MAS also hosted a lecture by radical Washington DC-area Imam Mauri Saalakhan, who told local Muslims that they must fight for the freedom of local terror suspects Aafia Siddiqui and Tarek Mehanna. MIT graduate Siddiqui was sentenced to 86 years for trying to murder two FBI agents in Afghanistan, and Mehanna, a Sudbury, MA resident who's now in prison, is accused by the FBI of plotting to murder Massachusetts shoppers at a local shopping mall.
Abdullah Faaruuq (who also serves as the Muslim Chaplain at Northeastern University) told worshippers that they should support terror suspects Mehanna and Siddiqui, and that they must not "be afraid to grab on to the gun and the sword and . . . go out there and do your job."
How can the MAS Roxbury Mosque be suitable for hosting and teaching public school students?
Given the growing concern about this radical mosque, APT has filed Freedom of Information requests with 40 public school districts around Massachusetts, some of which we believe may have taken trips to the Roxbury Mosque.
