D.C. Mosque: Embezzlement or Wahhabi Retribution?
My Pet Jawa ^ | August 16, 2007 | Dr. Rusty "John Doe" Shackleford

Posted on 08/16/2007 9:19:54 AM PDT by 3AngelaD

The scandal at the Islamic Center of Washington, D.C. centers on embezzlement allegations made against Farzad Darui. Darui claims that the money was not embezzled, but was being used to pay off the mistresses of Abduallah M. Khouj. Polygamy is officially sanctioned under Islamic law, but since the practice is illegal in the U.S., some of these 'mistresses' were really wives. Except for the ones that weren't. At least one of these 'mistresses' is said to have been held against her will.

I'm not sure how that is a good defense. Surely paying off Khouj's wives wasn't in the mosque budget--even if Abduallah M. Khouj is well connected with the Saudi royal family and was a former official at the Muslim World League and even if he was the mosque administrator. But the crux of Darui's argument is this: the charges against him had been manufactured by unnamed Saudi government officials as part of a scheme to oust him from his post. Their goal, Darui maintains, was to claim control over the mosque after Darui resisted Saudi efforts to have “radical” Wahhabi figures deliver messages of intolerance there.

“Because Darui barred Islamic radicals, from the [Islamic] Center, the Saudis, via the Center, have falsely accused him of embezzlement,” Darui’s filing claims.

Khouj is said to have invited Ali Al-Timimi, who is in serving life in prison for encouraging Muslims to join the Taliban and engage in jihad against U.S. forces, and Osama Basnan, who was deported because of his known association with 9/11 hijackers Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi, to speak at the mosque. Darui objected to the radical messages being preached.

The conflict between the Saudi Wahabbi Khouj and the more moderate Iranian born Darui came to a head when Khouj decided to step down and the Saudi government, which funds the mosque, intended to replace him with a former director of the Institute for Islamic and Arab Sciences, an organization that has been investigated by U.S. officials for possible links to terrorism. (No charges have been filed against the group.) After Darui sought to thwart the move by calling a rare board meeting, “the Religious Section of the Saudi Embassy began spreading the rumor that Darui was embezzling funds.”

And I thought church politics were bad in the Baptist church!

So now the government just looks the other way while these people practicing polygamy in our country to avoid "offending" Muslims. And this is happening in the Capital of the United States. A pox on the Iranians AND the Saudi Wahabbis, who should be barred from the U.S. on principle, anyway.

We should start delivering messages of intolerance of our own.

Close down all mosques, deport all Muzzies, let them go back to their sh*tholes, eat sand and f*ck their camels.

End the PC maddness before is too late.

Yup. Should have been done Sept. 12, 2001, and if there is another attack, I think people will take it into their own hands to do some Muslim deportin’.

Reality Check:

If there is another 911, the National Guard and all Law Enforcement personnel will be posted around this countries mosques and in muslim communities to protect them from retailiation.

Wow. This is a good one!
Not quite sure how to react.

Both sides appear to be right, but in different universes. On the one hand, if the guy is "embezzling", the Saudis should file a criminal complaint and let the details emerge in open court.

After all, the Saudis paid for and built the mosque and continue to fund its existence as a means to an end, and that means includes infiltrating radical muslim killers into the population as preachers.

When this guy refuses to do so (and keep his cushy job) and uses the Saudi funds, instead, to keep his mistresses in the style to which they are accustomed, yes, he is definitely embezzling.

Here's the punch line: I'm rooting for Darui!

I am afraid you are right. Our government no longer defends, or even recognizes, our interests. It’s all about the Saudis, Islam, their right to be here, their right to screw up our country.

Let’s see...hmmm...the vast bulk of the 9-11 hijacker/murderers were Saudi. A heavy plurality of the homicide bombers in Iraq are Saudi. And we let them run a radical training center in our nation’s Capital. And our President literally plays kissy-face with them. What is wrong with this picture?

It would not suprise me because if there is, Heaven forbid another major attack in America the angry backlash would be so hugh and violent that even those in both the law enforcement or military would end up looking the other way or quietly giving their blessings to Americans taking action against all things Muslim.

A window into the suppression of information that does not suit the radical Islamists. While we struggle to keep our free press from distorting, minimizing and denying the dangers we are facing. Not the least of which is the current metl-downof the global economy potential dollar crash.

http://noiri.blogspot.com/2007/08/actions-to-suppress-information-islam.html

People like Soros who betted against the dollar and might win their bet, fail to realize that the crash will take them and everything they own down with it.

The Great Depression will be a tiny blip compared to what we may be facing. We are already spending Billions to try to slow down the damage but if Soros wins his anti-Dollar bet there will not be enough money in the world to keep the dollar afloat.

I have an FR witness who will confirm I saw this coming some four or five years ago and sounded the alarm. At the time China did not have nearly two TRILLION dollars they can jettison onto the open market and sink the US Ship of State.

As this likelihood increases so does the likelihood of an attack on Iran to try to remove one important cancerous spot, which contributes to tall the destabilization, even thougn it was mortgage lending not currency manipulation that has caused it.

For now I am letting go and letting God. Bless us all.

I wonder which will come first - An attack on Iran of China dumping their dollars. If China wishes to hurt the U.S. without going to war, this would be a prime moment!

It is unfortunate, but I do have to agree with your thinking on this.

I’ve been watching the under-inflation of the Chinese $ for years with alarm...

Soros...the folks like him with the same mindset do not realize that if we go down, the world goes down. Pretty damn shortsighted...

But at that point, the Chinese could kiss their export wealth good-bye, because the first thing we would do if they unloaded their dollars is to close our ports to Chinese goods. How do you say, “Be careful what you wish for” in Chinese? I think a swift, devastating attack on Iran might take care of several problems at once, not the least of which is the Chinese supplying the Iranians with waeapons and missile parts.

"...If there is another 911, the National Guard and all Law Enforcement personnel will be posted around this countries' mosques and in muslim communities to protect them from retaliation..."

Great idea! When the LEOs get the muzzie gathering-places surrounded, all Americans will know where they are!

It should also be interesting watching the 'authorities' emptying the weapons, ammo, and explosives out of the mosques in Dearbornistan, Chicagostan, Minneapolistan, etc.

Then, when the LEOs decide to leave (they'll leave sooner or later, depending on the gravity of the attack on the USA - sooner if it's big, later if it's little), at least it'll be a fair fight ...................... FRegards
