Islamist Watch Warning: Beware “Woke” Muslims

Since I had previously devoted some attention to immigrant-pushing Islamic cleric Imam Omar Suleiman this post at Islamist Watch by Sam Westrop jumped out at me this morning as I did my usual perusal of the news looking for items that I think would interest you.

Westrop points out that the Salafists have not needed to change (or pretend to change) in Europe because the Muslim population there is high enough to push their ‘purist’ agenda without ‘modifying’ their hardcore beliefs, but in the US the population is not high enough (yet!) so they need the Leftwingers, the Progressive Dems, to essentially hide behind.

One of those clever pretenders is Suleiman.  I wrote about him working with Church World Service and CAIR in March of 2018 to protest Trump’s refugee slowdown.  See here.

Flexible Salafis
The Growing Political Power of ‘Woke,’ Modernist Islamism

 

Imam Omar Suleiman rarely talks about da’wah – the Islamic duty of proselytization. He never talks about Islamist designs for an Islamic state. Instead, America’s leading Islamic cleric speaks about broad political change, employing the language and ideas of progressivism.

In fact, Suleiman, president of the Yaqeen Institute, is not just a preacher; he is an activist, found often in front of TV cameras, speaking before Congress, or being arrested on Capitol Hill at protests against the Trump administration’s policies.

His success is surprising. Suleiman is one of a number of popular clerics who emerged from a network centered around the AlMaghrib Institute, a Salafi-founded organization dedicated to a hardline strain of Islam. Its own extremism is incontrovertible. Founder Muhammad Alshareef once wrote a paper titled “Why the Jews Were Cursed,” in which he claims Jews control the media and murder prophets. Other leading Almaghrib clerics include Abdullah Hakim Quick, who calls for the killing of homosexuals and urges God to “purify” Al-Aqsa from the “filth of the Yahud [Jews],” and “clean Afghanistan and Iraq” from the “filth of the Kafiroun [unbelievers].”

Suleiman’s rhetoric has at times been just as extreme. Around 2014, he was busy beseeching the ummah to rise up and act against the forces that threatened Islam. He praised a newer generation of “awakened” Muslim youth, and lauded the piety and commitment of the people of Gaza. And he criticized those who were “too lazy” to boycott the “Zionist regime,” claiming such activism by a committed few had already cost the Israelis over 8 billion dollars.

But as his fame grew, his tactics changed. Whereas once Suleiman excused the killing of adulterers and denounced homosexuality as a “repugnant shameless sin,” today he is an ardent advocate for political alliances with the progressive Left, including “LGBT” movements. In lectures and quasi-academic essays, Suleiman and Yaqeen now promote Islam as a force for “social justice.”

Instead of talking just about refugees from Gaza or Syria, Suleiman is today also found at the border with Mexico – equipped with journalists and their cameras – to embrace non-Muslim emigrants and loudly protest the Trump administration’s policies.

And rather than remain just a regular fixture on the Islamist conference circuit, Suleiman today finds himself introduced to Congress by Nancy Pelosi, and given a platform at Bernie Sanders’ campaign rallies, to talk about the “promise of America … an America that resists the forces of bigotry … the forces of greed … that distract us from corrupt billionaires.”

Omar Suleiman is both the Left’s talking-point and its talking-head.

He is no longer issuing parochial calls for an awakened Muslim youth, but he has become part of a broader hard Left movement that claims to be building a utopia for all.

There is much more, please continue reading.

And, here are several other posts at RRW in which Suleiman is mentioned.

Controversial (Radical!) Imam Prays Before Congress; Thank Dems for Invite

When I saw the story yesterday I realized I know this guy!
I wrote about him over a year ago being arrested with CAIR’s Nihad Awad and Linda Sarsour at a Capitol Hill demonstration sponsored by our old pals at the refugee contractor Church World Service (which I happened to write about yesterday before I saw the hubbub about Omar Suleiman!).

North Carolina County Taxpayers Spent $5000 to Hear Linda Sarsour Vent

What is going on in North Carolina?  I often hear people from the Northeast say they are heading down to live/retire in the Carolinas to get away from high taxes and liberal government policies, but I would think really long and hard about choosing North Carolina.

The political Leftwing is working day and night, year after year, to change North Carolina (by changing the people!).  When I was writing at Refugee Resettlement Watch I was puzzled by the push for more refugees to be placed there and I even noted that some world famous Islamic terrorists like KSM went to college in the Tar Heel State.
As I noted the other day, North Carolina, even under Donald Trump, is the fifth most ‘welcoming’ refugee resettlement state in the nation.
Now to the news about the Sarsour event, put on by the taxpayer-funded ‘Human Relations Commission’……

Georgia Republicans Learned about the Red-Green Axis Recently and You Should Too!

Editor: One of the great things about writing a blog of your own is that you can post things that you decide are vitally important for your readers to hear!  Author Leo Hohmann gave the following speech to a Republican audience in Georgia over this last weekend and received a standing ovation.  I know you have piles of things to read, but you must read the speech and then decide if you are in, or out, of the war to save America!

Knowing your enemy: The ‘Red-Green Axis of evil’ shows its face in Washington

How many of you have been watching the news in recent weeks and wondering, “is this still America? What is going on?”
How many Americans must be wondering, where did this Ilhan Omar, covered in the Islamic headscarf, come from and how in the world did she end up in Congress? We’re told she’s from Minnesota but she seems obsessed with demonizing Israel and speaks sympathetically of ISIS fighters.

Who is this other new Congresswoman with the foul mouth, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who bragged to the world that she would take drastic action against President Trump. She told her young son she would “impeach the Mother F’er?”
Who does this Linda Sarsour, also adorned in the headscarf, think she is, referring to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as some sort of white supremacist.
Pelosi is “a typical white feminist doing the work of powerful white men,” Sarsour posted on Facebook. Did Pelosi deserve such a harsh rebuke for simply considering disciplinary action against the brazen anti-Semite Ilhan Omar?
Two years ago, I wrote a book. It’s called ‘Stealth Invasion, Muslim Conquest through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad.’
I saw these people coming. Let me tell you how I knew that the fox was already inside the hen house.

I’m stopping here, but please go to LeoHohmann.com and read the entire speech.  It won’t take you long, just do it!

By the way, did you know that Linda Sarsour went to Georgia to campaign for Stacy Abrams for governor?  I didn’t.  There is much, much, more you might not have known!
