Michelle Malkin asked "Whos behind Islam on Capitol Hill? today. Part of the answer is Sheikh Ahmed Dewidar who, shortly after 9/11, implied Jews were complicit in the mass-murder of the 2,976.
On June 6, 2006, the Steven Stalinsky wrote about it in the New York Sun:
Within weeks of September 11, 2001, an Egyptian sheik serving as Al-Azhar University's representative in America and an imam at the Islamic Cultural Center and Mosque of New York City, Muhammad al-Gamei'a, was interviewed at an unofficial Al-Azhar University Web site, www.lailatalqadr.com. Sheik al-Gamei'a returned to Egypt shortly after his interview was translated. Many of his friends in the interfaith community were shocked at what this "moderate" said.
In the interview, he claimed the Jews were behind the September 11 attacks and offered the following as evidence: "four thousand Jews did not come to work at the World Trade Center," and "Jews control decision-making in the airports and in the ... White House and the Pentagon." Another outrageous statement: "Muslims do not feel safe even going to the hospitals, because some Jewish doctors in one of the hospitals poisoned sick Muslim children, who then died." Sheik al-Gamei'a also predicted the collapse of America.
Almost four years after Sheik al-Gamei'a made headlines, another influential Egyptian-born New York imam gave a series of interviews to the press in his homeland. He also did not expect his words would be translated by MEMRI.
An imam at the Islamic Society of Mid-Manhattan and a lecturer on Islamic studies at Manhattanville College, Ahmad Dewidar, was recently called "the face of the next generation of Muslims in America." He has met with President Bush, Mayor Giuliani, Governor Pataki and U.N. Secretary-General Annan.
Recently, Dr. Dewidar attended the annual Conference of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs in Egypt, where he gave a series of interviews. In one that aired on MBC TV on June 9, he discussed the spread of Islam in America. He referred to sermons he had heard in 1995 that stated, "We are going to the White House so that Islam will be victorious, Allah willing, and the White House will become Muslim House." To view the broadcast, visit www.memritv.org.
On June 15, Dr. Dewidar was interviewed by the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood's Web site, www.ikhwanonline.com. When asked about how the attacks of September 11, 2001, impacted the spread of Islam in America, he said that he witnessed hundreds of Americans converting to Islam. Hinting at an American government conspiracy related to the attacks, he said, "Whether or not these events were planned, or pinned on the Muslims, or something else - [it] provided an opportunity for [the American government] to legislate dubious laws that restrict the growth and presence of Islam in the U.S."
Regarding American skepticism toward Islam following September 11, 2001, he said, "The media - most of which is under Zionist control - has helped to spread this perception." Later in the interview he said that "the Jews" control the press. When asked, "What is the extent of the Muslim community's influence on American society?" He answered, "The Zionist community numbers only 3 million, but they control the government, the politics, the economy, and the media in the U.S."
Also while speaking to the Web site of the Muslim Brotherhood, he denounced President Bush's policy in the Middle East, claiming it was dictated by Natan Sharansky: "This Jew has despicable goals, and we see their effects today in America's actions in the region, imposing its opinion and its outlook on democracy, education, and political involvement on our countries."
Dr. Dewidar and Sheik al-Gamei'a's interviews shared some themes, such as blaming Islam's poor image in America on a Zionist-controlled press. They also both said the Zionists control political decision-making and economic institutions. Both were extremely positive on the future of Islam in America and discussed a trend of Americans converting to Islam following September 11, 2001.
Maybe Dr. Dewidar will have fellow 9/11 truther Van Jones MC the event.
Bin Ladin’s a hero for 911, but Bush and the Mossad did it.
Hitler was a hero for the holocaust, but there was no holocaust.
One correction: the NY Sun article was on June 6, 2005.

Phil Berg is going to lead a Muslim prayer?
You have just located the region of the Muhammadan brain responsible for cognitive dissonance. Prick it some more to hear such zingers as "The Dome of the Rock commemorates the 'Night Flight' from the Temple of Solomon which the Jews never built", and "We're a religion of Peace and to say otherwise warrants beheading." The perfect anti-intellectualism of Islam, as demonstrated by such doublethinking, goes hand-in-hand with its perfect amorality.
Anyone that is surprised at this is stupider than an obama or Democrat voter. I did not think that anyone could be stupider than than
All muslims in the US and Europe should be given one month to try to tie up any loose ends they may have and then return to their countries of origin. If they are married to westerners, the spouses and any offspring should go with them, as they are de-facto muslims.
If they refuse to leave or try to hide, they will be subject to the “most severe penalty”. And no, I'm not talking about jail. That would cost our taxpayers money that we shouldn't have to spend.
Barack Hussein Obama has banned the National Day of Prayer from the White House, now get a load of THIS!!

Islam is a peace-loving faith that is practiced by more than one-billion people, including millions of American Muslims. These proud citizens contribute to the diversity that makes our country strong, and the United States is grateful for the friendship and support of many Muslim Nations that are vital partners in the global coalition to fight against terrorism.

A “peace loving” faith? I’m speechless.

Okay, I’ll bite, what the hell have Muslims contributed to America?
They will come there and talk that peace crap and carry signs saying they want to kill non-muslims.
