MUST READ: Lucky Cypress, Texas has not one, but two, mosques!

Cypress, Texas, a suburban bedroom community in northwest Harris county, is now home to not one, but two mosques! They are the “Islamic Outreach Center” (IOC) and the “Cypress Islamic Center” (CIC). The two mosques are less than two miles apart, as the crow flies.

The Islamic Outreach Center is a project of ICNA, the Islamic Circle of North America. ICNA is a Muslim Brotherhood in North America front group whose “…work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny…”

The Islamic Outreach Center (another taqiyyah term for a mosque) opened in the summer of 2012. The address is 19025 Wilks Dr, which is off Mueschke Rd (north of Schiel Rd and south of Bauer Hockley Rd). Neighbors have already complained of the increased noise, traffic and lowering property values. In it’s one year existence, the masjid has already hosted a number of supremacist and intolerant Islamic spokesmen.

In February 2013, the masjid hosted a presentation on Islamic financing, sponsored by an Islamic bank in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which advocates strict sharia compliance. What’s the problem with sharia finance, you ask? Well, educate yourself. On the IOC’s Facebook page, they promote the ICNA Relief’s Houston banquet in June 2013, which featured speaker Yasir Qadhi, who was exposed in a video on this blog for saying “Christians are filthy, evil, impure, dirty kufar whose life and property hold no value in the state of jihad.” The masjid has recently hosted Sheihk Waleed Basyouni, who in 2006, stated that “…Muslims are “the only people who know God” and, as such, are uniquely righteous and clearly distinguishable from nonbelievers.” Are you feeling the inter-faith love, the Islamic outreach, and the Muslim-Christian understanding?

The resident imam of the “IOC” is Fahad Tasleem, who studied Arabic at Georgetown University (home of John Esposito and the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding). Brother Tasleem is also very proud of his time spent in Mecca & Medina. Br. Tasleem wasted no time in engaging in deceptive dawa with the neighboring ignorant kufar, as demonstrated by his lectures given at the IOC about the Jesus of Islam and at the “Good Shepherd” church:

Here’s a little more about the good brother: “In 2007, Fahad Tasleem founded Dawah Corps – an organization with a mission to ignite, for Muslims living in the West, a passion for Islamic outreach. Fahad’s expertise in the realm of dawah stems from a number of years of experience with the various outreach efforts of MSA’s, [Muslim Students Association] Islamic centers, and Islamic organizations across North America. Fahad has also served as a khateeb [person who delivers Koran narrations] and lecturer for the Islamic Society of Greater Houston.  …   He is the founder and lead instructor at the DC [Dawa Corps] Seminary along with being an adjunct professor at various other universities and colleges.  …  Fahad Tasleem recently joined ILF [Islamic Learning Foundation] Texas, a teaching project of ICNA. He is an instructor for ILF Houston on site classes at Islamic Outreach Center (IOC-Cypress).” Coincidentally, the MSA is also a Muslim Brotherhood front group.

Imam Tasleem gave a lecture at the Masjid Al Salam in the Champions area of Houston in January 2013 titled “Islamic awakening : the mujadded series.” He has lectured at at least one gathering of the University of Houston Muslim Students Association (MSA) on the topic of “Crusade Complex – History of Orientalist Thought” in April 2010. Tasleem also owns Bean Counters, a bookkeeping and tax preparation service.

The second mosque, the Cypress Islamic Center, moved to their new home in March 2013 at 16103 Cypress Rosehill Road, Cypress, TX (north of Hwy 290, near the intersection of Huffmeister & Cypress Rosehill Rd).  The property was acquired in August 2012.  Two little mosques on the prairie, within two miles of each other, and both opened within a month of each other!  How convenient!

Before settling in at the Cypress Rosehill address, the CIC’s address of record was 16518 House Hahl Rd in Cypress, which is the Black Horse office, storage and postal center. The mosque began meeting there in November 2011. Earlier in 2011, the CIC also met in the Bridgeland Community Center. I wonder if the good kufar on the Bridgeland HOA board knew that a Muslim Brotherhood-sponsored group was meeting in their midst?

According to IslamicFinder.org, CIC is an “ISGH Center Mission.” ISGH is the Islamic Society of Greater Houston. Through an agreement with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a member paying annual membership dues to ISGH also becomes a member of ISNA.  ISNA calls itself the largest Muslim organization on the continent and it enforces extremist Wahhabi theological writ in America’s mosques. ISNA is also Muslim Brotherhood front group in North America, so members of ISNA are Muslim Brotherhood, and thus so are members of ISGH. So, this established that CIC is a Muslim Brotherhood mosque teaching radical Wahhabi Islam.

A lecturer who has spoken at the CIC, Abdul Nasir Jangda, shared the stage at the ICNA-MAS (Muslim American Society)  annual convention in May 2013 with Siraj Wahhaj (advocates the replacement of the U.S. government with an Islamic Caliphate and supports violent Islamic jihad), Zaid Shakir (would like to see America become a Muslim country), and Jamal Badawi (unindicted co-conspirator in terrorism funding trial), among others.

In July 2012, a fundraising dinner was held in Houston for the CIC and featured guest speaker Imam Johari Abdul-Malik. Imam Malik is is the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque’s Outreach Director located in Falls Church, Virginia. According to the Department of Treasury’s Enforcement Communications System records, Dar al-Hijrah “is a mosque operating as a front for HAMAS operatives in U.S.,” “is associated with Islamic extremists,” “has been under numerous investigations for financing and providing aid and comfort to bad orgs and members,” and has “been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing,”

Nice.

Cypress, you’ve been warned.

The Sharia Threat to America

By Fred Grandy

….This incursion of sharia into US court systems usually manifests itself in the form of foreign law from nations such as Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Syria and other predominantly Islamic nations.  As a result, four states, Tennessee, Louisiana, Arizona and Kansas, have passed into law “American Laws for American Courts,” legislation. Several more states are considering American Laws for American Courts. Unlike Oklahoma’s infamous constitutional amendment, American Laws for American Courts does not ban sharia. American Laws for American Courts protects individual, fundamental constitutional rights by preventing courts from applying foreign law when the application of that foreign law in the case at hand would result in the violation of a fundamental constitutional right, such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, due process and equal protection.

Among the organizations that are clouding the issue on sharia is the Saudi-backed Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator and revealed to be a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate in the US v. Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism financing prosecution in American history.

ISNA was co-founded in 1981 by Sami Al-Arian, a man who is now in federal prison after having been convicted on terrorism charges as a member of Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

According to two reports in the San Francisco Chronicle, the other co-founder of ISNA, Mahboob Khan, twice hosted Ayman al-Zawahiri on fundraising trips here in the USA.

In addition, a regional representative for ISNA, Abdurahman Alamoudi, was found to be a chief fundraiser for Al Qaeda here in the USA and was convicted on terrorism charges. Alamoudi founded the Islamic Society of Boston using ISNA’s tax-exempt, non-profit status.

ISNA board member Muzammil Siddiqi told the San Francisco Chronicle in June 2001 that he “supported laws in countries where homosexuality is punishable by death.”

Siraj Wahhaj, who served as vice president of ISNA, is on record as supporting all aspects of sharia, including its call for brutal punishments like the removal of one’s hands as the penalty for theft, and death by stoning as the penalty for adultery. According to Wahhaj, such harsh measures are wholly justified by Islamic scripture as he preached in a May 1992 sermon: “I would cut off the hands of my own daughter [if she stole] because Allah stands for Justice.” On another occasion, Wahhaj stated: “If Allah says 100 strikes, 100 strikes it is. If Allah says cut off their hand, you cut off their hand. If Allah says stone them to death, through the Prophet Muhammad, then you stone them to death, because it’s the obedience of Allah and his messenger-nothing personal.”…

More drivel from the Houston Chronicle – Paints Muslims as Victims and Ignores Radical Fatwas from Local Imam

Our friend Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs reminded us that yesterday saw yet  another article by our hometown Dhimmi rag, the Houston Chronicle that  panders to Muslim causes.

Chronicle reporter Lomi Kriel wrote about the attempts by congregants of an Islamic Society of Greater Houston mosque to “fire” their Imam after he made some bizarre, weird and totally nutty statements claiming the U.S. government was poisoning the drinking water and other loopy stuff.

Now if members of any religious denomination want to rid themselves of a Pastor, Preacher, Rabbi or Imam for being loopy loo that is their right, but Kriel decided to take this story way off base and as a consequence filled readers heads with inaccurate and incomplete information full of Islamic propaganda and victimhood narrative.

For example, Kriel emphasized members of the mosque want to speak out against those who are “blots in their community” but then failed to mention that ISGH is one of those blots, not because they have a nutty Imam, but because they are part of the Islamic Society of North America, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation, Hamas terror funding case.

Citing unnamed experts, Kriel contends that “young Muslims in particular  . . . feel the need to self-police their own community’ but fails to inform readers that there was no self-policing going on when the President of the ISGH  conducted an on camera interview with a local news station in which he denied the attacks of 9/11 were carried out by Muslims, or when a 2005 report on Hate in US Mosques uncovered several Houston area mosques operated by ISGH where hate literature had been found.

Kriel did not share with readers that the Muslim organization sought for a comment on this story is Hamas linked CAIR, also an un-indicted co-conspirator in fund raising for Hamas, or that it’s Director quoted i nthe article, Mustafa Carroll is another 9-11 truther, and advocates for Sharia law to replace the U.S. Constitution.

The Chronicle did however pad the story with how this group of Muslims, disgruntled with their Imam and already suffering as victims of post 9/11 anti-Islam backlash have now found their voice to speak out against “fringe comments” which in turn has helped prevent terror attacks.

The journalistic ineptitude is staggering.

What backlash against Muslims  . . . ?   FBI hate crime stats suggest otherwise.

The Chronicle would have us believe that Houston Muslims speak out against “fringe comments” made by their paranoid and nutty Imam, and that now means terror attacks have been foiled?

Really . . . . ?

We challenge the Houston Chronicle to ask these same Muslims, when will you speak out against the “fringe comments” about jihad, sharia, Islamic Jew-hatred etc. regularly heard in many mosques up and down the country.

Pamela Geller reminds us in her post

According to a recent five-year survey of mosques in America, over 80% are teaching, promoting and advancing jihad. We never hear Muslims express concern or complain about that rhetoric. This story only confirms our worst fears of what goes on in the mosques. Only when Muslims speak out against jihad, honor killlings, FGM, and the sharia can we begin to hope that the essential change needed in Islam is beginning to actually happen.

We have to wonder why is the Houston Chronicle not shining a light on the “fringe comments” issued by Main Alqdua, Imam at the Muslim Brotherhood controlled mosque in Katy, just west of Houston ?

Alqdua penned a 2010 fatwa declaring it a sin for US Troops to be in Muslim Lands (Iraq and Afghanistan) and therefore it is also forbidden for American Muslims to send care packages to them. He sits on the fatwa committee of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America who regularly issue Anti-American fatwas such as a 2010 instruction for American Muslims not to support or co-operate with Law Enforcement that is not based on Shariah and a more recent edict that called Female Genital Mutilation an honor and obligation for American Muslima

We covered Alqdua, the Katy Mosque and the Anti-American fatwas issued by the AMJA in our posts here, here and here

We call those type of comments “fringe” and should be challenged, but apparently Houston’s Muslims don’t because they havent spoken out about it, nor does the Houston Chronicle because they continue to refuse to write about it.

Orwell would be proud !!

Houston Muslims question FBI terror tactics

By ZAIN SHAUK

The Texan convicted last week of attempting to aid al-Qaida wasn’t on any most-wanted lists and was not in possession of bomb-making materials. He was by no means a major player in global terrorism.

But the Muslim man from Hempstead was a threat, FBI agents said. So they tracked him for two years, using cameras, recording devices, an informant and even a plane.

Several agents and agencies were involved in the investigation of Barry Bujol before he was arrested for trying to leave the country through the Port of Houston with GPS devices and other materials.

Officials said he planned to give them to al-Qaida.

That vast investigative effort worried some Muslims in the Houston community, where views on the FBI’s role in monitoring and tracking suspects have led to tensions over recent cases.

Some have argued that the agency’s use of informants who befriend and observe suspects could lead to entrapment, with the informants potentially leading otherwise peaceful youths toward illegal acts.

Others have called into question the strong bonds between some Muslim leaders and the FBI, citing concerns over a discontinued agency training session that said Muslims were likely to support violent extremism.

While Muslims have repeatedly condemned acts of terror and have shown support for efforts to prevent violence, the FBI’s tactics as it aggressively pursues targets that appear to be minor has inspired confusion and concern about the agency’s goals, said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Texas chapter of the  (Hamas connected, terror supporting -ed.) Council on American-Islamic Relations.

“My concern is the effect that it’s had on the community, how it’s divided the community,” Carroll said. “There are real nebulous terms as to how they define who is a problem and who isn’t. It’s not healthy. The community doesn’t have the trust in it.”

Waaaahhhh! Stop tracking terrorists!

FBI representatives said that the agency targets all threats, regardless of a suspect’s background.

“We have to mitigate everything just so that we don’t have another 9/11, so that we don’t have another Oklahoma City,” said Steve Gentry, the assistant special agent in charge of Houston FBI’s counterterrorism program.

“That’s what the taxpayer expects, and that’s to protect every sector of society,” Gentry said.

But the use of informants can be troubling and should raise questions among leaders in the community who are connected with the FBI, said Ali Zakaria, an attorney and member of theMuslim Lawyers Association.

“Would the same thing have happened if the FBI informant was not present?” Zakaria said…

…Dr. Aziz Siddiqi, president of the (Muslim Brotherhood connected  -ed.) Islamic Society of Greater Houston, said that concerns about the FBI’s investigation of Muslim suspects could be addressed through stronger ties with the agency.

He said his close relationship with FBI officials allowed him to directly question them about the now-discontinued training that, among other misstatements, erroneously labeled the Islamic principle of giving charity as a “funding mechanism for combat.”

“I said we will not tolerate those kinds of training over here,” Siddiqi said. “And in fact most of them agreed. They also did not like it. They said this is counter to what we try to achieve.”

Others said more direct involvement in intelligence could help mitigate concerns about misunderstanding between agents and community members.

“My opinion is that we need more Muslims in the FBI,” said Rabea Benhalim, an attorney and member of the Muslim Lawyers Association.  (Yes. That’s exactly what we need. More Muslims in the FBI.  Heaven help us.  -ed.)

Houston connections: ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA (ISNA)

ISNA Enforces extremist Wahhabi theological writ in America’s mosques

From Discover the Networks

Established in 1981 by the Saudi-funded Muslim Students’ Association of the U.S. and Canada (MSA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) calls itself the largest Muslim organization on the continent. ISNA was created by MSA with the help of one of Palestinian Islamic Jihad‘s founding students, Sami Al-Arian. Another noteworthy founding member of ISNA was Mahboob Khan.

Today ISNA’s annual conventions draw more attendees — usually over 30,000 — than any other Muslim gathering in the Western Hemisphere. ISNA’s mission is to function as “an association of Muslim organizations and individuals that provides a common platform for presenting Islam, supporting Muslim communities, developing educational, social and outreach programs and fostering good relations with other religious communities, and civic and service organizations.”

ISNA focuses heavily on providing Wahhabi theological indoctrination materials to a large percentage of the mosques in North America. Many of these mosques were recently built with Saudi money and are required, by their Saudi benefactors, to strictly follow the dictates of Wahhabi imams — an edict that affects the tone and content of the sermons given in the mosques, the selection of books and periodicals that may be read in mosque libraries or sold in mosque bookshops, and the policies governing the exclusion or suppression of dissenters from the congregations.

Through its affiliate, the North American Islamic Trust — a Saudi government-backed organization created to fund Islamist enterprises in North America — the Saudi-subsidized ISNA reportedly holds the mortgages on 50 to 80 percent of all mosques in the U.S. and Canada. Thus the organization can freely exercise ultimate authority over these houses of worship and their teachings.

Writes Kaukab Siddique, the editor of New Trend, an Islamic periodical of extremist views that is nonetheless opposed to Wahhabi domination of American Islam: “ISNA controls most mosques in America and thus also controls who will speak at every Friday prayer, and which literature will be distributed there.”

 

ISNA is connected to the Islamic Society of Greater Houston (ISGH), see: 

“Through an agreement with the Islamic Society of North America, Inc. (ISNA), a member paying annual membership dues to
ISGH also becomes a member of ISNA. A portion of the membership dues paid to ISGH will be remitted to ISNA for its
membership. The portion of membership dues to be paid to ISNA will be established annually by the BOARD.”

Found here: http://www.isgh.org/Membership%20Bylaws%20-%20amended.pdf

Here are some ISGH mosques in the Houston area with connections to ISNA:

Maryam Masjid in Fort Bend County, New Territory subdivision

El-Farouq Mosque, 1207 Conrad Sauer, Houston

Masjid Hamza, 6233 Tres Lagunas, Houston

These Houston-area mosques are all affiliated with ISGH, and thus, connected with ISNA.  This is a small sample, there are many more.

“According to terrorism expert Steven Emerson, ISNA “is a radical group hiding under a false veneer of moderation”; “convenes annual conferences where Islamist militants have been given a platform to incite violence and promote hatred” (for instance, al Qaeda supporter and PLO official Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi was invited to speak at an ISNA conference); has held fundraisers for terrorists (after Hamas leader Mousa Marzook was arrested and eventually deported in 1997, ISNA raised money for his defense); has condemned the U.S. government’s post-9/11 seizure of Hamas’ and Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s financial assets; and publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Islamic Horizons, that “often champions militant Islamist doctrine.”

Adds Emerson: “I think ISNA has been an umbrella, also a promoter of groups that have been involved in terrorism. I am not going to accuse the ISNA of being directly involved in terrorism. I will say ISNA has sponsored extremists, racists, people who call for Jihad against the United States.”

“…ISNA was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document — titled “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” — as one of the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”

This is who we have in our midst, pretending to be moderate, patriotic Americans, all the while undermining our free country and the United States Constitution.  What can you, a citizen, do about this? Share this information with your mayor, your city council member, your state and federal elected representatives-send them a link to this post.  When your elected official condescendingly says “yes, but not all Muslims are bad people…” let them know you don’t argue that point, but the official must face facts.  If your representative insists on keeping his/her head buried deeply in the sand, let them know you will not donate to their campaign, you will not vote for them, and you will let the world know how clueless they are.
