King hearings should probe imams whose teachings threaten Americans
Despite opposition from the usual Muslim Brotherhood offshoot "advocacy" groups in the United States, Rep. Peter King is forging ahead with hearings Thursday on what he terms domestic "Muslim radicalization."
I believe direct cross-examination of clerics from the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA), including a frank discussion of their public "fatwas" (Islamic religious rulings), is essential to the congressman's critically important goal of understanding Muslim radicalization in America.
Finally, another Arabic-language fatwa from Salah Al-Sawy, secretary-general of the AMJA, leaves open the possibility for offensive jihad against America and the West as soon as Muslims are capable of waging it. When asked whether "the Islamic missionary effort in the West ... [was] to the point where it could take advantage of offensive jihad," Mr. Al-Sawy ruled: "The Islamic community does not possess the strength to engage in offensive jihad at this time. With our current capabilities, we are aspiring toward defensive jihad, and to improve our position with regards to jurisprudence at this stage. But there is a different discussion for each situation. Allah Almighty knows best."
Given these odious, if unabashed, public rulings, it is incumbent upon Mr. King and his committee staff to subpoena, if necessary, the AMJA clerics who have issued them. Publicizing and elaborating the "rationalizations" for such Islamic rulings by these clerics - authoritative representatives of mainstream, institutional Islam - will afford critical insights into the radicalization of American Muslims.

The Brotherhood's official website notes that jihad is Islam's most important tool in effecting a gradual takeover, beginning with the Muslim countries, moving on to reestablishing the Caliphate over three continents in preparation for a conquest of the West, and finally instituting a global Islamic state.
Of course, he could ask witnesses for their view of such statements, whether waging jihad against the U.S. is a commandment of Allah, etc.; and whether they separate themselves from the statements, and if so, in what practical ways.
Arab and Muslim regimes are betraying their people by failing to confront the Muslims real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States. Waging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded (what) the (Muslim) nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life. - Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie, October 2010
- democracy is
forbidden for Muslims
democracy (is) incompatible with Islam because the Koran insisted Allah was the sole lawmaker
humans have no right to make laws. (http://www.news.com.au/national/islamist-leader-burhan-hanif-tells-aussie-muslims-told-to-shun-democracy/story-e6frfkvr-1225887784755#ixzz0slho45BW)
Well, you beat me to it, got hung up on the telephone.
Agreed, and if the AMJA is considered a mainstream American Muslim organization they’d better ask many questions about these clerics and their fatwas.
Most everyone seems to understand that the Muslim Brotherhood was and still is a radical Islamic org except our president and there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of difference in the MB and the AMJA.
Who sez’ they’re civilized?
Exactly, get some resident AMJA clerics before the hearing and fire away with questions. If Bostom got this info on the org it’d be safe to say our government has more.
