DMN: Stop Saudi Jihad Proselytizing

• Views: 1,617

A Dallas Morning News editorial this morning follows up on their courageous exposure of the Freedom House report on Saudi hate ideology in US mosques: With Friends Like These: Stop Saudi jihad proselytizing in U.S.

The 9/11 Commission report said America isn’t fighting a war on “some generic evil” called terrorism, but a war on Islamist terrorism. What are we to make, then, of the startling fact that some of our Saudi allies are seeding U.S. mosques with enemy propaganda?

The nonpartisan Freedom House recently released a report on the spread of Saudi-sponsored hate literature. In 2003, investigators visited leading American mosques and collected written material available to congregants. The documents, originating either with the Saudi government or Saudi-funded sources, advocate Wahhabism, the extremist form of Islam that Freedom House describes as a “fanatically bigoted, xenophobic and sometimes violent ideology.”

According to the report (available at freedomhouse.org), investigators gathered literature that teaches contempt for Jews, Christians and tolerant Muslims, as well as hatred for America. Material found in a Houston mosque even commands the faithful to establish a revolutionary fifth column.

Some of these documents came from the Dallas Central Mosque in Richardson. Unfortunately, this kind of thing is not altogether alien to this mosque. Last spring, it hosted a youth quiz competition, sponsored by two national organizations closely tied to the worldwide Islamist movement. Kids were tested on the work of premier jihad ideologist Sayyid Qutb.

The mosque’s imam, Dr. Yusuf Kavakci, has publicly praised two of the world’s foremost radical Islamists, Yusuf Qaradawi and Hasan al-Turabi, as exemplary leaders. Dr. Kavakci also sits on the board of the Saudi-backed Islamic Society of North America, described in congressional testimony as a major conduit of Wahhabist teaching. Yet Dr. Kavakci tells The Dallas Morning News he rejects Wahhabist teaching. Something doesn’t add up.

Sayyid Qutb is the author of “Milestones,” the Mein Kampf of the global jihad movement—and it’s highly disturbing to learn that Muslim children are being indoctrinated with this foul work of fascist xenophobia, in the United States.

You can find the document containing Dr. Kavakci’s praise of Yusuf Qaradawi and Hasan al-Turabi at the Islamic Association of North Texas web site; see the link titled “Hamidullah: A Biography.” (The document may disappear now that we’ve linked to it; we saved a copy.)

It would be a great idea for LGF readers to email the editors of the Dallas Morning News and express support; they’re certain to receive a lot of deranged hate mail for this editorial: letterstoeditor@dallasnews.com.

UPDATE at 2/7/05 12:34:44 pm:

If you contact the Dallas Morning News and you’d like your email to be considered for publication in the paper, please include your name, street address, city of residence and daytime telephone number.
