Qasim Rashad, the Amir of the United Muslim Masjid in South Philadelphia affirmed what numerous spectators throughout the years have suspected, that the’s mosque will probably make and support a “Muslim in particular” area simply obstructs away from City Hall.
Mr. Rashad was the visitor speaker on a new Council on American-Islamic Relations-Philadelphia-supported online course. He made it understood “the Muslims took these structures over” and communicated disillusionment that the piece of the area has gotten improved. He talked with adoration for the mosque’s monetary patron, unbelievable performer Kenny Gamble a.k.a. Luqman Abdul Haqq who, through his Universal Companies, possesses numerous properties in the area remembering the structure for the side of the fifteenth and Christian roads where the United Muslim Masjid has worked since 1994. Bet didn’t conceal his aim when he bought these properties. “We are not only here for Universal; we are down here for Islam.” Lately, Gamble has been involved in charges of pay off and the FBI is investigating Kenny’s Universal Properties part in charges of defilement against Councilman Kenyatta Johnson.
Rashad gloated about his participation in the American Muslim Council in Washington DC and his kinship with its organizer Abdulrahman Alamoudi who, Rashad conceded, “got up to speed in Homeland Security issues.” Indeed, Alamoudi was condemned to 23 years in jail in 2004 for intending to kill King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. He likewise fund-raised for al-Qaeda through the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development which was sentenced for raising assets for Hamas. Alamoudi additionally communicated regret that the 1998 US Embassy besieging in Kenya and Tanzania didn’t kill any Americans.
Rashad clarified that the American Muslim Council was the harbinger of the Muslim Alliance in North America or MANA. Rashad knew the head of MANA, Jamil – al-Amin or H. Rap Brown of the Black Panthers who said “if America doesn’t come around we’re going to touch it.” Currently, Brown is in jail for killing a Georgia sheriff.
Rashad is glad that MANA’s initial two gatherings were held at the United Muslim Masjid. Kenny Gamble sits on the leading group of MANA alongside Siraj Wahhaj, a co-plotter in the 1993 World Trade Center bombarding.
Rashad conceded that weapon savagery is an issue in Philadelphia and that numerous culprits and casualties are Muslim in any event, during the blessed month of Ramadan, a period for Muslim reflection and supplication. Yet, he appeared to be absent to the likelihood that UMM might be liable for encouraging firearm brutality. With an end goal to draw in youth to UMM Rashid said he “gives them the need they need,” and what the young need is target practice. UMM likewise runs the Jawala Scout camps where Muslim youth participate in gun preparation, hand-to-hand battle, and wear paramilitary outfits. One young fellow in the online class went to the Jawala Scouts camp and said he “took in a great deal about Islam” at the camp.
Rashad said that “Muslims are the awesome humankind” particularly with their obligation to social equity which, he said is “essential for our DNA.” By method of illustration of social equity advocates he highlighted CAIR, Bobby Seale, the Black Panther Party, and the Nation of Islam, however, conceded that the NOI has an “alternate point of view on peacefulness.”
CAIR was established by individuals from the fear-monger association Hamas at a gathering that occurred in Philadelphia. CAIR is an unindicted co-backstabber in the government argued against the Holy Land Foundation, sentenced for fund-raising in the United States for Hamas.
Bobby-Seale was one of the authors of the Black Panthers a political association that had a background marked by rough a conflict with police.
Both The Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League pronounced the Nation Of Islam a disdainful bunch upholding profound bigot, hostile to Semitic and against gay leanings.
Rashad proceeded to say that Islam is superior to Christianity on the grounds that their Iftar suppers happen each day for a month while Christmas was just a single day. He is additionally investigating changing the name of “Christian Street” to “Muslim Way.”
The Muslim territory in Philadelphia is believed to be the best in America. Bet is additionally making advances in Chicago, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. The inquiry is, the reason are numerous Muslim areas quartering themselves off from the remainder of society? One of the objectives of MANA is to “Advance Islamic solidarity and resistance between Muslims . . . inside the wide-way of Shari’ah.” Shari’ah law incorporates controlling a person’s relationship with its neighbors. As per the National Center for Constitutional law, Shari’ah is contrary to the United States constitution.
While on a superficial level Gamble’s freeing the South Philadelphia neighborhood of its curse might be exemplary its ulterior reason for separating itself from the local area to follow the directions of MANA and Shari’ah law is a troubling recommendation and ought to be a notice sign to individuals of Philadelphia.
