DNC Appoints Islamist to Convention Committee

• Views: 1,781

The Democratic National Committee, chaired by Howard Dean, has appointed an Islamist front man to the credentials committee of their 2008 Convention: DNC Elects Three Indian Americans to Convention Committees.

In addition, Pakistan-born Iman Malik Mujahid, founder and president of Chicago-based Islamic teaching materials distributor Sound Vision Foundation, was named to the credentials committee, which coordinates selection of convention delegates and alternates.

The executive committee voted unanimously for DNC chairman Howard Dean’s nominations for the nine co-chairs and the 75 additional committee members. …

Mujahid is a Muslim leader, activist, film producer and non-profit entrepreneur. An imam at three Chicago mosques, he has a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Chicago and is currently president of the Council of the Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago.

A producer of over 40 educational programs, his book, “Conversion to Islam: Untouchables Strategy for Protest in India,” won the Outstanding Academic Book of the Year award from the American Library Association.

Mujahid (a name which means “holy warrior,” of course) and his operation Sound Vision will be familiar to longtime LGF readers, because about a year after the 9/11 attacks we discovered the bulletin board they used to run—a center of support for terrorism, jihad ideology, suicide bombing, and snuff films.

Here’s our post about a thread at Sound Vision where one of the Muslim members posted a poem called: “Yes, I am a Terrorist.”

Here’s our post about a thread where they were defending the posting of beheading videos: Support for ClearGuidance.

And here’s our post about a Sound Vision thread where the Muslim members were jubilant over a mass murder attack in Jerusalem that killed a number of children: US Muslim Teens Celebrate Murder.

Eventually they noticed our attention, warned each other to watch out what they were posting, and then the next day closed the forum to outsiders.

And there’s more, in a post about one of the mosques with which Mujahid is affiliated: Investigating the Mosque Foundation.

Miss Kelly has more on Mujahid, in a post appropriately titled: Islamists making Inroads with DNC.

UPDATE at 1/31/08 10:27:28 am:

Here’s an article by Abdul Malik Mujahid at soundvision.com, lavishing praise on convicted cop killer “Imam Jamil Al-Amin”—aka H. Rap Brown: My Memories Of Imam Jamil Al-Amin.
