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,”
Cypress, you’ve been warned.
