Philadelphia - The Muslim American Society And "The Blood Of Martyrs"

MAS Lies About Videos Posted On Pulled Facebook Page
May 17, 2019

May 9, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - – Outed by Steven Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism [IPT], a school apparently affiliated with a Philadelphia Muslim center has been accused of disseminating video material featuring brainwashed kids lip-synching to terror-tied Arabic chants.

"Young Muslim boys, dressed in traditional Palestinian garb, passionately lip-sync, "The blood of the martyrs is calling us. Paradise, men desire it…Revolutionaries, Revolutionaries ...Sword and Text, oh free men." [source, Islamic Center Lied About School In Jihad Video Being Separate Entity ]

The "text" referred to is of course the Qur'an, the jihadist cookbook.

Compounding matters, having been confronted with the video evidence, MAS denied being associated with the jihad school, but a records search by IPT revealed that corporate ties between the two entities run deep.

"MAS' desire to distance itself from the video is understandable. First reported by the IPT, it showed ‘Ummah Day' videos featuring elementary school aged Leaders Academy students. Ummah generally refers to the overall Muslim community. The children lip-synced to a song which included verses saying, ‘The blood of the martyrs is calling us.' Elsewhere, the children continued acting out the song with light choreography, even when it promised Israelis that revolutionaries would "chop off their heads ... and we will subject them to eternal torture .'"

Legacy media coverage of the controversy has been scant and lacking in curiosity, however what has been published is - per the standard template - slanted in favor of the dissembling defenders of MAS such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, an organization that was linked to the Arabic terrorist group HAMAS 10 years ago.

"In 2009 during post prosecution motions following U.S. v Holy Land, Federal District Judge Jorge Solis stated, ‘The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling.' [source,Federal Judge Agrees: CAIR Tied to Hamas , Investigative Project on Terrorism]"

For what it's worth, the Philadelphia office of CAIR dismissed the video as merely being " stupid "

With "defenders" of this caliber, what's left of Philly's Muslim American Society's credibility is, or should be, in tatters.
