“They are already calling us terrorist, anyway…make the title worth it!”
So says Imam Sheikh Shakir of the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque of Falls Church, Virginia. This speech was given January 26,2013 at a high school in Alexandria, Va. where the Imam was invited to address the 1st anniversary of the Ethio-Muslims movement in America. This post and video is not so much about the Ethopian movement, but to show this Imam to the public, in his own words, advocating the Quran based teachings of Islam: That you are to have allegiance to, or obey none but Allah, to fight jihad, as a united force using the the “3 powers of Faith, Unity, and Armaments.”
Watch the host scramble to the microphone to disclaim the Imam’s advocacy for armed jihad. I do not necessarily condemn the Ethiopian immigrants here and extend good wishes for the seventeen non-violent protesting Muslims who are being held and abused by the Ethiopian government. But this Imam knows Islam. He knows Quran and he knows Sharia. What he is advocating is not “extremism” but the same practice of Islam that Seyyid Qutb advocated.
H/T to my fellow counter-jihadi, “Causing Fitna”, whose blog link is on my blogroll. He has provided the link to the full length speech on his truncated version which I have posted here. I have seen the entire speech and CF has not taken the Imam’s words out of context in the 7 minute video.
Did I mention that Sheikh Shakir is the Imam at Dar al-Hijrah Mosque? That’s the same mosque that was led by Imam Anwar al-Alawki, and was attended by some of the 9-11 hijackers…and Major Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood jihadi…in Falls Church…Virginia…yeah that’s the one. Please watch the video.
