Amid threats by Muslims that have prompted hotels to cancel
conferences warning of the encroachment of Islamic law in America, a
group called DefendAmerica.org is countering with a call to protest
the Hilton Hotel in Anaheim, Calif., for hosting the annual fundraising
banquet for the Los Angeles-area branch of the controversial Council on
DefendAmerica.org points out that the featured speaker for CAIR-LA’s
event Saturday night is Siraj Wahhaj, who was named by the Justice
Department as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World
Trade Center that killed six Americans. CAIR itself was named by the
Justice Department as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land
Foundation probe in Texas, the largest terrorism-finance case in U.S.
Wahhaj also urges the violent overthrow of the “filthy” U.S. government and the establishment of Islamic law.
The imam testified as a character witness for convicted WTC terrorist mastermind Omar Abdel-Rahman, known as the “blind sheik.”
“CAIR is showing its true colors by aligning with such a notorious
anti-American radical,” said Gary Cass of DefendChristians.Org. “We’re
shocked that the Hilton Hotel will allow such an event on their
Cass said his group is inviting “fellow patriots” to gather at 4 p.m.
Saturday in front of the Anaheim hotel to “expose the public to
Hilton’s association with CAIR and Siraj Wahhaj.”
In a videotaped May 8, 1992, sermon obtained by the authors of
“Muslim Mafia” titled “Stand Up for Justice,” Wahhaj makes it clear
that, contrary to CAIR’s media guide, he believes jihad means “holy
war,” not merely a “struggle to better oneself.”
“If we go to war, brothers and sisters—and one day we will, believe
me—that’s why you’re commanded [to fight in] jihad,” the Brooklyn-based
Wahhaj says. “When Allah demands us to fight, we’re not stopping and
nobody’s stopping us.”
Wahhaj preaches that Islam teaches violent insurrection in “infidel
lands” such as America, points out the “Muslim Mafia” co-authors,
counterterrorism investigator Gaubatz and “Infiltration” author Paul
Wahhaj exhorts the faithful to go into the “hood and the prisons and
convert disenfranchised minorities, and then arm them and train them to
carry out an Uzi jihad in the inner cities.”
“We don’t need to arm the people with nine-millimeters and Uzis,” he
says. “You need to arm them with righteousness first. And then once you
arm them with righteousness first, then you can arm them [with Uzis and
Wahhaj makes it clear, nevertheless, he sees Islam as a uniquely militant religion.
“We don’t have a turn-the-other-cheek philosophy” like the
Christians, he says. “Allah has given us permission to fight them” so
that “the word of Allah can be uppermost.”
Wahhaj also was recorded telling New Jersey Muslims in 1992 that if
only Muslims were more clever politically, they could take over the U.S.
and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate, according
to Islam and Middle East expert Daniel Pipes.
“If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give
allegiance to him,” Wahhaj was quoted as saying. “[T]ake my word, if 6
to 8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”
Counterterrorism expert Steven Emerson obtained a video of a Wahhaj
speechin Toronto Sept. 28, 1991, titled “The Afghanistan Jihad” in which
the imam declared:
"Those who struggle for Allah, it doesn’t matter what kind of weapons,
I’m telling you it doesn’t matter! You don’t need nuclear weapons or
even guns! If you have faith in Allah and a knife! If Allah wants you to
win, you will win! Because Allah is the only one who fights. And when
his hand is over your hand. whoever is at war against my friends, I
declare war on them."
Citing Emerson, “Muslim Media” notes Wahhaj once likened the U.S. to a
trash bin and prayed it would “crumble” and be replaced by Islam.
“You know what this country is? It’s a garbage can,” Wahhaj said. “It’s filthy.”
