Radical Muslim Group Fraudulently Promoting Fundraising Event

Aprill, 12 2005 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews - According to the official announcement being circulated by the Assadiq Educational Islamic Foundation in Boca Raton, Florida, the Mayors of Coral Springs and Boca Raton will be in attendance at a special celebration of:
"the birthday of the last messanger [sic] of God, Mohammad Rasul-Allah."
Each of the Mayors has also been designated as a "guest of honor."
We have been in contact with both of the Mayor's offices. As we go to press Mayor Rhon Ernest-Jones of Coral Springs has not returned our phone calls regarding his possible participation in the event, but Mayor Steve Abrams of Boca Raton was extremely forthcoming and communicated the following to our correspondent, Beila Rabinowitz:
"Thank you for your email regarding the Assadiq Islamic Education Foundation event to be held in Boca Raton on April 30, 2005. I am outraged that my name has been associated with this event. I have not received any request to attend or be "honored" at the event and would certainly not accept any such invitation. It is particularly upsetting because one of the advertised speakers is William W. Baker. Several of my family members perished in the Holocaust, and any suggestion challenging the historical record of the Holocaust is repugnant to me.
I am, of course, seeking to contact this organization to express my extreme displeasure and demand that my name be removed from any advertising for this event."

The Assadiq Educational Islamic Foundation [AEIF] is a radical Islamic organization, whose Imam - Mohammed Al-Qazwini - has deep familial ties to Iran as well as the extreme Shiite Muslim sect in the city of Karbala, Iraq.
Shockingly, the AEIF website even features a "dripping blood" graphic that seems to belie any possible claims of moderation on their part.
As noted above by Mayor Abrams, one of the "celebration's" keynote speakers will be a disgraced neo-Nazi, William Baker, whom the flyer seems to represent as being currently affiliated with Robert Schuler's Crystal Cathedral in California, when in reality he was fired - years ago - from that organization shortly after his background became clear.
The flyer also claims that Baker is "one of the most outstanding figures in the Christian world." - a lie of rather astounding proportions.
According to a February 2002 article in the Orange County Register - Hour of White Power
"...Baker was chairman of the neo-Nazi Populist Party in 1984 and organized its national convention that year. The Populist Party was established and directed by Willis Carto, head of the now-defunct Liberty Lobby. The dean of American neo-Nazi politics, Carto also founded the Costa Mesa-based Institute for Historical Review, a group whose central purpose is Holocaust denial....During the same period, Baker wrote and published Theft of a Nation, a 1982 book whose salient feature is its unrelenting pro-Arab, anti-Israel and anti-Jewish politics. Writing on contemporary Middle East politics, Baker stated that "true justice and real conciliation" requires that "all Jews who entered Palestine during the British Mandate from 1917 to 1948 and after the establishment of the state of Israel should return to the various countries of their origin" and that the "Zionist state of Israel . . . should be dismantled and eventually eliminated..."
That the Assadiq Educational Islamic Foundation makes use of such fraudulently disingenuous tactics in promoting its agenda is not really surprising, since most of what the media recognizes as "moderate" Islam turns out to be of the closet Wahhabi persuasion, often funded by radical Saudi interests.
We also make note of the fact that the Council On Islamic American Relations, CAIR is affiliated with this event. That occurrence we find totally in keeping with the tenor of the event, since CAIR specializes in masquerading under the guise of moderation while conducting its stock in trade - cultural jihad - towards its ultimate goal of an American Muslim Caliphate.
