YMCA Camp Bernie hosts in New Jersey hosts Young Muslims Sisters 'Jihad' Camp with radical Islamist speakers Negm and Wahhaj

August 16, 2006

The Muslimah's Pearl Necklace 'Pearls of Her Character Unstrung" is the deceptively innocuous name for the upcoming Young Muslims Sister's 'Jihad' Camp being held on the premises of the YMCA's Camp Bernie in New Jersey. One of the speakers, Ibrahim Negm was a speaker at the 2001 YM Jihad Camp, which took place before 9/11. Negm is an 'educator' who has put together a curriculum which includes instruction for Young Muslims on how and when to wage Jihad. In 2001 Negm explained to a journalist that terrorism and jihad was simply mischief.

"Terrorism is not jihad, and aggression is not jihad. Such brutal and
violent acts, to use an Arabic word, are `fasad,' or mischief.

This story ran on page A27 of the Boston Globe on 10/19/2001.

Another speaker is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co conspirator in the 1993 WTC bombings, who has said that America will be destroyed and replaced with an Islamic state.

Wahhaj was recorded in a speech he gave at a mosque as saying, "I see the demise of the Soviet Union as a sign for the American people that what happened in the Soviet Union will definitely happen in America unless America changes its course from the new world order and accepts the Islamic agenda."\

Young Muslims Sisters' Northeast Regional Camp will take place August 18-20 at Camp Bernie in Port Murray, NJ. Many sisters have wished to attend a real summer camp without stepping into settings that are unaccommodating to Islamic ideals. InshaAllah YM is determined to deliver a camp filled with inspirational lectures and activities focusing on the character of a Muslimah, which will encourage a long lasting connection between the creation and the Creator of the Heavens and the earth. With invited speakers such as Imam Siraj Wahaj, Br. Nouman Khan, Sr. Sumera Khan, Sheikh Ibrahim Negm, and Dr. Obeyd Choudry, sisters will get the personal attention they deserve while enjoying various outdoor activities such as archery, outdoor games, camp fires and more. Transportation will be provided from for those traveling from NY and NJ. Sisters ages 13-27 can register at

The Young Muslims Sisters group have advertised their August Camp which will feature several radical Islamist speakers including Siraj Wahhaj and Ibrahim Negm. Negm is the editor of The International Mirror the magazine of the Islamic Circle of North America located in Jamaica, Queens in New York. Both Siraj Wahhaj and Ibrahim Negm lectured at the 2001 Jihad Camp and a 2002 ‘Preparing for the Afterlife (Akhira) camp. Ibrahim Negm has written a study syllabus for Young Muslims which includes entries about Jihad which includes the following entries: ‘Jihad, the highest act, sacrificing everything , Jihad, and dying in the way of Allah' and ‘The importance of waging Jihad',.
Negm is the editor of ‘The Mirror International' ICNA magazine and explained to Yong Muslims that the afterlife is more desirable then this life ; We should not be distracted or exploited by the greedy multi- national companies out to shape our beliefs and values as well as to rip us off. While these Satanic institutions try hard to keep us busy, we must bear in mind that Islam gives the young person a very high and rewarding role of being active followers of the true Deen. There are countless rewards available for the young person who fights the ills and temptations of this world in return for the sanctity of the hereafter, and those who can see beyond the fake surface of the media and capitalism..."
Siraj Wahhaj is an unindicted co conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and appeared as a character witness on behalf of Omar Abdel Rahman the who was jailed for his role in the thwarted day of terror which targeted New York landmarks.
Wahhaj is best known for having his name on the list of potential co-conspirators in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, as compiled by the office of then-U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White. During the 1996 trial for the World Trade Center bomb plot,Wahhaj served as a character witness for the leader of the conspiracy, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman He testified that it had been an honor to host Rahman at his (Wahhaj's) mosque, and he described Rahman as a "respected scholar." In addition, he called another convicted member of the bomb plot, Clement Rodney Hampton-El (a.k.a. Dr. Rashid), "one of the most respected brothers [of his congregation]." It was around this time that Wahhaj was recorded in a speech he gave at a mosque as saying, "I see the demise of the Soviet Union as a sign for the American people that what happened in the Soviet Union will definitely happen in America unless America changes its course from the new world order and accepts the Islamic agenda."

At a recent demonstration against the Danish cartoons Wahhaj warned that Muslims "Had to make sure that they (infidels) do not do this again." Young Muslims is the youth division of ICNA and MAS. ICNA is the Islamic Circle of North America, and MAS is the Muslim American Society. Both groups have documented ties to Al Qaeda and the international terrorism network. One prominent New Jersey Imam, who often speaks at Muslim Youth camps, Mazen Mokhtar, is under investigation by the FBI for running an Al Qaeda website and was linked to a London bomb plot which targetted landmarks in New York City. The Muslim American Society has raised legal funds on behalf of Omar Abu Ali, who was jailed for a plot to kill President Bush MAS also defended Ali Al Tamimi, who was jailed for recruiting students to wage Jihad.


MIM: Ibrahim Negm is scheduled to become the head of the Young Muslims Learning Foundation where he will indoctrinate Muslim youth with the notion that 'terrorism is not jihad and aggression is not jihad' and is just a form of Islamist "mischief"

Young Muslims, a pioneering national youth organization is proud to introduce a new and exciting

venture, the Young Muslims Learning Foundation. This project is designed to further the work of Young

Muslims in enriching the lives of Muslim youth in North America by educating their minds and affecting

their hearts, by providing them with sound knowledge of Islamic shariah. Most Muslim youth get their

Islamic knowledge from lectures, tapes, MSA meetings and the weekly khutba. There are very few

institutes and programs in North America that can provide quality Islamic education for Muslims, and even

those can be costly with very limited space. The bottom line is that most youth are left out. Young

Muslims Learning Foundation seeks to change all that, YMLF would provide serious Islamic education to

youth across North America at their convenience.

YMLF is seeking the full time services of an Islamic Scholar, to be dedicated to the service and

education of the youth who enroll in our classes. This experience will take learning beyond the setting of

the weekly halaqa, or lecture, and bring it into a formal classroom. Local YM (Young Muslims) chapters

will host classes in major cities and states such as New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Houston, California

and Toronto. Now your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews can learn how to better themselves and

their communities through professionalism and excellence. With added features like Internet broadcasting,

YMLF will bring these classes to you, all but eliminating the hefty travel costs that are usually incurred

when attending quality Islamic courses. The YMLF goal is to start with a two-year program, with a

curriculum that will cover Aqeeda, Arabic, Fiqh, Quranic studies, Hadith studies, and the contemporary

issues Muslims are faced with today.

This program cannot happen without your help. In order for YMLF to launch, at least $40,000

must be raised to cover the costs of the program. This cost includes facilities, and the most crucial element

of a course like this, a qualified teacher. Please help us achieve our goal of training a capable and

intelligent generation of Muslim Youth.

The leading candidate who we are looking to employ as our full time teacher is Sheikh

Ibrahim Negm. The following is a brief profile of his credentials:

Sheik Ibrahim Negm:


graduated #4 in the nation from al-azhar high school (Egypt).
