Imam of Al-Islam Mosque in Washington believes that the US and its allies so-called war on terror is in fact a war on Islam and Muslims, not just in the Middle Eastern countries but all around the world.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the notion that the US may come to terms with Islam and Islamic movements is a mistake. In a meeting with hundreds of scholars, academics, thinkers and researchers participating in the International Conference of Muslim University Professors and Islamic Awakening, Ayatollah Khamenei said that any notion that the global arrogance, led by the US, may come to terms with Islamic movements is wrong. Ayatollah Khamenei added that all the demands of the Muslims must be resolved peacefully.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Abdul Alim Musa, Imam of Masjid al-Islam in Washington, to further discuss the issue. The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.
Press TV: Iran's leader says the US will do everything it can to stop Muslim groups. Given the fact that the US has heavily been investing in anti-Islam activities, be it films, be it anything, what is the future going to be like for Muslims?
Musa: What is the future for Muslims like here in the US and all around the world, first of all, the Rahbar [Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei] was right that this war on terror, we all know, is clearly a war on Islam and it is not a regional war; it is a global war.
The US and the UK who are losing their global power do not have power to do good in the world today. They only have power to do negative or evil. So therefore whether it is encouraging what we call are trying a lot of terror that is the American government when it is an invasion, when it is media; it is the Zionist-controlled media; when they want us to fight amongst themselves, they use Saudi Arabia.
For instance, many of the illegal troops who are going into Syria to kill innocent people and to destroy the whole country, they are there at the behest of Saudi Arabian wealth and position.
While inside the country in Qatif and while Bahrain is suffering, they have no words of freedom and justice. So this war on terror is really as we know a war on Islam.
Now what is the future? I believe the future is what we Muslims make it. Therefore, as the Rahbar [Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei] said, this is a real time of diligent. We have to really stand up for justice and truth during this period and we have to be also I believe very optimistic, unjustifiably optimistic.
That means that we have to have an optimism that it even exceeds this situation and analysis and this unjustified optimism will cause us to work hard and be more diligent in our struggle to free humanity from the clutches of global Zionism.
Press TV: You are an Imam of a mosque in the states. How fast is the trend of Muslim converts growing or in other words, how much has the US been able to dissuade non-Muslims from converting to Islam?
Musa: OK. Now what happens is it is called a backfire effect. As they run people away from Islam, they actually run people toward Islam because American people are strange creatures. If you tell them to stay away from something, then they will go and investigate it.
So when this Reverend Jones wanted to burn Qurans, it caused people to read Quran even more. So the way you get people to get interested in something is to ban it. So if they ban Quran, if they try to burn the Quran, it has caused people to come to Islam faster.
So we are having, inside of the US, a serious conversion or reversion of Americans to Islam and also the interest level and the knowledge level about Islam against common people is rising. That means in a few years the Zionist media will have a weaker hold on demands and on the thinking and therefore on the policies of the people of America.
There is another issue. The Muslims themselves are very fearful right now. They have been frightened by this global war on Muslims, infiltration of the masajid [mosques], turning the Imam or the Imam Juma [Friday prayers] into a FBI collaborator which they cooperate with the FBI. This is happening a lot.
One of the mainstream Muslim organizations, Islah, said in their own magazine Horizons that they believe they estimate that there are 15 thousand agents inside the US infiltrating the masajid [mosques] and then they go on to say that they believe there are 45 thousand non-paid agents, those who cooperate for favors like Green Cards and citizenship with that.
So we see a bright future. We are not afraid of America; we are not afraid of Zionism; we are not going to sit around and allow them to say and do what they want, no. Many of us are going to stand up for Islam, for truth and for common humanity and for justice.
