Will Obama endorse an anti-Semitic, anti-American Islamic day of prayer?


The Islamic community hopes to have 50,000 Muslims surrounding the U.S. Capitol for Jummah prayer this Friday, September 25.

While all people are of course free in America to pray according to the dictates of their own conscience, a look at the leaders of this prayer event raises serious questions about whether this event is good for America.

The main organizer of the event, Hassen Ibn Abdellah, was, according to the New York Times, the "most aggressively combative of the lawyers" representing the terrorists who staged the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His client was convicted of manufacturing and transporting the bomb and is now in the "Supermax" prison at Florence, Colorado.

He also spent some time in court trying to get Mohamed el-Atriss out of the jam he got himself into by selling fake IDs to two of the 9/11 hijackers.

In 2004, Abdellah tried to get Numan Maflahi off the hook. Maflahi is a New Jersey Muslim who, despite Abdellah's best efforts, was sentenced to five years in prison for his part in terrorism financing schemes centered in Brooklyn.

In 2007, Abdellah came to the defense of Mahmud Faruq Brent, a Baltimore cabdriver who pled guilty to attending a jihad terrorist training camp in Pakistan, and who, under Abdellah's instructions, refused to cooperate with authorities or testify against other defendants.

And that's not all. The imam who will lead the recitation of the Koran, Sheikh Ahmed Dewidar, is a Manhattan cleric who once said that "through the domination of Islam and its ideas, the White House will change," and spoke approvingly of another cleric who said that one day "the White House will become...the Muslim House."

He has also claimed that Zionists "control the government, the politics, the economy, and the media in the U.S."

Another imam, Abdul Malik, is also an organizer, and has this quote posted on his Facebook page (emphasis mine): "Democracy is not revelation, and democracy does not equal freedom, for in democracy...you have all of the vices that are against the spirit of truth; so no we don't want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy. That's what we want."

The bottom line here is that this Islamic prayer event is being led by men who harbor both anti-Semitic and dangerously anti-American views.

President Obama has barely acknowledged the Christian heritage of the United States, refusing to participate in the National Day of Prayer and issuing only a perfunctory proclamation which he was required to do by law. Yet he has hosted a dinner celebrating what he called "the Holy Month of Ramadan" in the White House, and recently issued a proclamation at the end of Ramadan which concluded with an Arabic blessing.

Given the radical views of the organizers, let's hope neither President Obama nor his spokesman issue any statements or proclamations whatsoever in support of this Muslim day of prayer. The president has already given us plenty of reasons to wonder where his true religious sympathies lie. That last thing he ought to do is give us another by endorsing this event while continuing to distance himself from America's Christian history and traditions.
