    Ex-NBA star educates police on Islam HOUSTON (AP)— Houston police learned a lesson about Islam from former Houston Rockets center Hakeem Olajuwon as part of a program to educate officers about the city's diverse communities. Olajuwon spoke to officers Wednesday at the Hakeem Islamic Dawah Center, a mosque and Islamic education center built with money provided by the NBA star. Organizers of the Houston Police Department's program said they wanted someone who could put a face on Islam to dispel cultural stereotypes. "This type of program is so important in today's world, where Islam has been so misunderstood by so...

    I met the young Barack Obama while visiting Caroline Boss, my Marxist socialist girlfriend, at her parent’s home in northern California over Christmas break in 1980....I am writing this article, in part, because I’m surprised that David Maraniss’s new book Barack Obama: The Story failed to include my account of young Obama’s ideological extremism. [....] Significantly, Maraniss relates that Obama was in the San Francisco area only to tell a larger story of how he first met Sohale Siddiqi, the Pakistani who later became Obama’s roommate at Columbia University. In Maraniss’s account, Siddiqi first meets up with Hasan Chandoo and...

    GREENSBORO -- A Pakistani man federal officials have said is linked to hijackers in the Sept. 11 attacks pleaded guilty today to voter fraud. Imtiaz Ahmed Siddiqui entered the plea in a brief federal court hearing in which no mention was made of the allegation that he may be acquainted with terrorists. Siddiqui, 31, answering questions in halting English, admitted he claimed to be a U.S. citizen when he filled out a voter registration form in Durham in August, though he is actually a Pakistani citizen. "Yes, I am," he said when U.S. District Judge James Beaty Jr., asked if ...

    SNIPPET: "The NEFA Foundation has obtained a video recording released by the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) paying tribute to a German national "Abu Safiyya" (a.k.a. Javaid Siddiqi) who was "martyred" in late October during fighting alongside mujahideen forces in Afghanistan. The video shows Siddiqi on the frontline along the Afghan-Pakistani border accompanied by other German recruits--and at a terrorist training camp that was organized last May."

    Obama spent the six years between 1979 and 1985 in Los Angeles at Occidental College and then in New York at Columbia University and in the workplace. His memoir, "Dreams From My Father," talks about this time but not in great detail; Siddiqi, for example, is identified only as "Sadik" — "a short, well-built Pakistani" who smoked marijuana, snorted cocaine and liked to party. Obama's campaign wouldn't identify "Sadik," but The Associated Press located him in Seattle, where he raises money for a community theater. Together, the recollections of Siddiqi and other friends and acquaintances from Obama's college years paint...

    Old Friends Recount Memories Of The Presidential Hopeful Before His Political Success (AP) The way Sohale Siddiqi remembers it, he and his old roommate were walking his pug Charlie on Broadway when a large, scary bum approached them, stomping on the ground near the dog's head. This was in the 1980s, a time when New York was a fearful place beset by drugs and crime, when the street smart knew that the best way to handle the city's derelicts was to avoid them entirely. But Siddiqi was angry and he confronted the bum, who approached him menacingly. Until his skinny,...

    Adam Gadahn was just another Riverside County devotee of death metal, but then he turned up on an FBI terror list If the radical right wanted to paint a portrait of a terrorist, they couldn’t do much better than Yahiye Adam Gadahn. In fact, the FBI’s announcement last May that it was actively seeking Gadahn for questioning regarding his possible ties to Al Qaeda energized conservatives in ways they could not have imagined – helping to not only whip up fears of Islamic radicalism but also to fuel the deepening “culture war.” The 25-year-old former Orange County resident had a...

    SANTA ANA, Calif. — The ACLU and Muslim advocacy groups sued the FBI and the Justice Department on Tuesday, alleging that authorities failed to turn over records detailing suspected surveillance of the Muslim-American community. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, alleges that the FBI has turned over only four pages of documents to community leaders, despite a Freedom of Information Act request filed more than a year ago. The request sought records that described FBI guidelines and policies for surveillance and investigation of Muslim religious organizations, as well as specific information about FBI inquiries targeting 11...

    Who is Suhail Kahn and why does Grover Norquist want him on the Board of Directors of the American Conservative Union?  The casual observer might think nothing of the candidacy of a fellow named Suhail Khan for election to one of two open seats on the Board of Directors of the American Conservative Union – the political Right’s largest and most influential grassroots umbrella organization.  Certainly, for most Americans, the man’s faith would be of no interest.  If the fact that Khan is an adherent to Islam were even known, it probably would be seen as an asset ­– another...

Those singled out as enemies of al-Qaida are Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer, Steven Emerson, Michael Scheuer and, of course, President Bush. The first three are WND contributors and outspoken media figures who warn about the growing threat of Islamo-fascism. Scheuer is...

    Adam Gadahn’s Extremist American Imam May 28, 2004 "He was becoming very extreme in his ideas and views. I never thought that he would go to that level." That’s what Muzammil Siddiqi says about Adam Gadahn, the American convert to Islam and one of seven suspected Al-Qaeda operatives sought by the FBI. But Siddiqi, the Executive Director of the Islamic Society of Orange County—Gadahn’s former mosque, is the real extremist. Siddiqi taught regular classes and delivered the weekly Friday afternoon sermons at Gadahn’s mosque. And given his views, it’s no surprise that Gadahn is now suspected of involvement with terrorists....

    CBN.com – WASHINGTON, D.C. — Islam may be the fastest-growing faith in America today, and it is finding eager converts in prison cellblocks nationwide. But with the increase in jailhouse conversions, some see a sinister threat — growing evidence that extremist Muslim chaplains, hired by the U.S. government, are preaching a hate-filled agenda in the name of Allah, and possibly turning American prisons into breeding grounds for future terrorists. The startling scenario appears more likely with revelations that federal and state governments are hiring radical Muslim chaplains to minister behind bars. The rising concern involves U.S. government-paid clerics who practice...

    Friends in high places WASHINGTON -- The rumpled, balding figure was spotted darting into the offices of Republican power broker Grover Norquist last July. When Sami Al-Arian emerged more than two hours later, someone was waiting for him. Conservative activist Frank Gaffney, whose think tank on national security issues has offices on the same floor, was eager to confirm a tip that the suspected Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative was next door. Best known for his high-profile campaign for a "Star Wars" national missile defense system, Gaffney for months had been quietly pursuing another project: trying to convince the Bush administration...

In his first address to Congress after 9/11, the President noted that we are facing the same totalitarian enemies we faced in the preceding century. It is not surprising that their...

The indictment charges that Palestinian Islamic Jihad - which the United States has officially designated as a terrorist organization - has been deeply entrenched in the United States for more than two decades and that it has used American academic and fund-raising groups as fronts for operations that have been responsible for the deaths of more than 100 people, including Americans, in the Middle...
