Free Muslims Against Terror head Kamal Nawash writes that ' The only terrorist in the Middle East is the State of Israel '
FMAT's facade of moderation belied by leaders claims that "Israel will once again be Palestine" and "the Jews stole the land"
MIM: Free Muslims Against Terror aka Free Muslims As Taqiyya:
"‘For certain people, I'm a hero. For certain people, I was sent by God…Someone described me as the Martin Luther of Islam.' Kamal Nawash 2005 http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/05/12/AR2005051201788.html
These 1996 postings by Kamal Nawash the head of The Free Muslims Against Terror prove that he is lying when he (and his 'organisation' claim they accept the existence of Israel and wax philosemitic. This dissembling should come as no surprise after Nawash's brazen denials about being a lawyer for convicted terrorist Abdulrahman Alamoudi (Nawash's name was on the affadavit as a member of the defense team). http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/531
Nawash continues to lie about being moderate Muslim while still attending events with his friends from the Wahhabist funded Arab American Anti Discrimination Committee who were just promised a new building by Saudi billionaire Prince Al Saud, who also offered aid to MPAC and CAIR to help in their efforts to 'improve the image of Islam in the United States'. The dismal failure of Nawash's much hyped Million Muslim March, which fell short of it's goal by a mere 999,990 Muslims, did nothing to dim his aura among his devotees. http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/684
Condoleeza Rice was hoodwinked into including him as the self proclaimed representative of ' 6 million Muslims and 3 Million Arabs' to OSCE conference, at which Israel was blamed for anti semitism and Nawash praised the outreach efforts of MPAC and ADC . Nawash is now being touted as setting his sights on the White House. No doubt his friends at the ADC and Saudi billionaire Walid Al Saud will be more then happy to to help him along the way. http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/671

MIM: Nawash's command of the english language appears to have improved little in the years since his web missives. A reading of his work on the FMAT website makes one wonder how he ever received his law degree and if he now employs a 'ghost writer' .
Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch reported the response that researcher Erich van Abele received after he Nawash an analysis of FMAT's statements on Jihad and asked him to clarify FMAT's stance against terrorism.
"...Abele noted that while FMAT statements "say they reject the violent interpretation of ‘jihad,' they seem to leave wiggle room open for it with the following comment: ‘The Coalition feels that the concept of jihad should be reinterpreted for a modern day context in which holy war is obsolete. No holy war needs to be waged; there is no clear and present threat to Islam...' This comment implies that a violent type of jihad would need to be waged if there were a clear and present threat to Islam…"
Kamal Nawash responsed with an abusive and insulting email: "Dear Erich, Paranoid schtsophrinia [sic] is a treatable disease now. Please see some one about your problems. There is nothing wrong with admitting that you are nuts. 21st century medicine has cures for just about anything. This is our official response. I hope you keep your word and have it published. FreeMuslims.org..."
MIM: Nawash's dissembling also extends to his story about the founding of Free Muslims Against Terror. According to one article he founded the group in 2003 after a revelation he had during the Hajj (the pilgrimage to Mecca) In a recent article he said he founded the FMAT directly in response to 9/11 which would mean that he was still working for the terrorist supporting ADC and as a lawyer for terrorist Abdulrahman Alamoudi, whom Nawash called a 'Muslim moderate and patriotic American' . It certainly takes one to know one. Nawash's 'moderate Muslim' client Alamoudi was subsequently jailed for 23 years on terrorism charges.
It is also worth noting that Nawash constantly refers to himself as a Palestinian from a refugee camp and sometimes embellishes this with a story that his family's land was confiscated in the aftermath of the six day war. Given Nawash's history of mendacity, the question arises as to if he can prove his claims. It seems odd that Nawash claims on one hand that his family's property was confiscated and says that he came to the US as a refugee from a refugee camp. Also questionable is the fact that his bio always starts with himself proclaiming his status as a Palestinian refugee, while disingenously asserting that he is favorably inclined towards Jews and the Jewish State. In all likelihood, Nawash's refugee claims are as fraudulent as his claims of moderation.
Nawash, a Palestinian born in Bethlehem, came to the United States as a refugee after his family's land in Jerusalem was confiscated by Israel in the aftermath of the Six Day War. He is uncompromising in his belief that no cause—not even the Palestinian desire for statehood—can ever justify terrorism. In fact, Nawash argues that Muslims have an ethical duty to put an end to violence fueled by religious intolerance. "The ideological battle is bigger than the military battle. Muslims themselves, to defeat terrorism, have to step up to the plate," he said.
According to Nawash, he is the only leader of a Muslim organization who is challenging the extremists, and fanatics, and the media savvy Nawash intends to use technology to communicate his message around the Muslim world. He invites Christians and Jews to be apart of the dialogue.
Nawash does not believe that Islam is intrinsically anti-Semitic. Muslim theologians interpret the Koran in ways that advance their religious and worldly agendas, he said. A verse in the Koran which reads, "Anyone who calls himself a Jew can go to heaven" is interpreted by Osama Bin- Laden as a warning: "Do not take Jews as friends." For this reason, Nawash opposes the blending of religion and government.
Nawash founded the Free Muslim Coalition after witnessing the horrific events of September 11th and coming to the realization that Muslims were responsible. He felt that Muslims had not issued a strong condemnation of terrorism. "I always recognized that we have not done enough," he said.
"...It was a bright, clear morning in September in Virginia as Kamal Nawash undertook his morning rituals of taking a shower and enjoying his morning tea.."
"...His vision on how he would respond came to him during his required haj, or holy pilgrimage to Mecca in 2003. It was in this inspired, formative moment that Kamal decided to be a voice of reason. He belief that it was only fellow Muslims that could stop the terror carried out in the name of Islam, and Mr. Nawash set out to form the organization Free Muslims Against Terrorisim (FMAT).."
