CAIR calls it “Beyond Black History Month: The life and contributions of unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trader Center bombing attack, Imam Siraj Wahhaj. (See who Wahhaj really is below this video)
Wahhaj is one of many Muslim leaders affiliated with CAIR who have been named or prosecuted in U.S. terrorism-related investigations. An imam at Masjid Al-Taqwa in Brooklyn, Wahhaj is on record urging a violent overthrow of the “filthy” U.S. government assisted by jihad warriors armed with Uzis.
WND In a videotaped 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 Sperry.
The American government’s “worst nightmare is one day that the Muslims wake these people up in South Central Los Angeles and other inner-city areas,” he says in the video. 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 other weapons].”
CAIR tells the public in its media guide, however, “There is a common misperception among Westerners that the Quran teaches violence.” 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.”
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of Siraj Wahhab, was arrested and charged with training Muslim children to shoot up schools in a New Mexico terrorist training compound.
Breitbart Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of an unindicted co-conspirator, Siraj Wahhab linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who was arrested in New Mexico on charges of keeping 11 starving children in a filthy compound. According to court documents filed by prosecutors, Wahhaj was training the children to carry out school shootings.
Prosecutors asked the judge to hold Wahhaj without bond for felony child abuse. He is also the subject of an extradition warrant from Georgia on charges of kidnapping his own son from the state in December. His son was not among the starving children rescued from the compound. There are fears the remains of an as-yet unidentified child found at the compound could be Wahhaj’s son.
The 11 living children rescued from the compound, plus the child’s remains that were recovered, would add up to 12 kids. The missing boy, named Abdul-Ghani, was 3 years old at the time his mother said her husband Siraj Wahhaj abducted him from Georgia; Monday marked his fourth birthday.
The boy’s mother, Hakima Ramzi, clarified on Tuesday that the procedure her husband wanted to perform on the boy was an Islamic prayer ritual called “ruqya” that was intended to purge her son of illness. “It’s not an exorcism. That was a translation issue in the court,” she said, insisting Wahhaj “just wanted to pray for Abdul-Ghani to get better.”
The local sheriff said the children were clad in rags and “looked like Third World country refugees.” He said their living conditions were the “ugliest looking” and “filthiest” he had ever seen. The property reportedly had no clean water, no hygienic products, and no food except “a few potatoes and a box of rice.”
The sheriff described the occupants of the compound as “heavily armed and considered extremists of the Muslim belief,” although few details about their specific beliefs have been released to the public, beyond the situation Hakima Ramzi described with respect to her son.
