As everyone knows by now, I have recently been on a campaign to surgically de-construct the fabrications, deceit, and outright LIES of confessed terrorist fund raiser Sami Al Arian. Truth be told, I have other things to do, and only took up this issue after being challenged to prove a number of assertions I made in the course of exposing the “immigrant Muslim Syndicate”. I feel confident that I have done that.
What was most troubling and indeed disconcerting to me in examining that issue was discovering a sense of shock and disbelief, experienced by not a few in the community, that a Muslim would expose the criminality and profound mendacity of one of their own in public. The notion among those who think and feel this way seems to be “protect a Muslim even if he is wrong“. This completely erroneous conception of religion only underscores how far we Muslims have strayed from the straight path of Al Islam.
Our religion teaches us to be upright, honest, and most importantly, just. It also teaches us that Muslims are not angels, and can at times even be susceptible to criminality. So yes, Muslims will be found committing murder, slander, theft, fornication and adultery, drug and alcohol abuse, and – in today’s world – terrorism, and did so even in the time of the Prophet. So why do we now feign a type of shock and disbelief that a fellow Muslim in good conscience decided to stand for what he believed to be right?
Has it now become a tenet of our religion that however outrageous and repugnant the offense, a Muslim is to keep his mouth shut if it happens to be committed by another Muslim? Carrying that twisted logic further still, it is then argued that “Islam and the Muslims would be harmed” by reporting or commenting on the crimes of the disreputable members (criminals) of our community, and that remaining quiet in the face of wrong constitutes some type “Islamic unity”. Reporting criminal Muslims to the authorities is characterised as turning “snitch” or “taking our affairs to the “kafirs”. How many of our sisters have endured physical and emotional abuse at the hands of their husbands for years, believing it wrong to go to the municipal authorities – the “kuffar” as they say – after the community was unable to resolve their affair Islamically. All matters of justice must be deferred til the establishment of the “Islamic State”. Let me just say here that if this community is going to make real progress in this country, Blackamerican Muslims especially, this type of thinking must be repudiated and discredited.
That is because it is precisely this type of corrupt thinking that allows criminals like Sami Al Arian (who on numerous occasions openly praised terror attacks on children and women), and dare I say HUNDREDS of others in the American Muslim community, to get away with literally murder, and afterwards seek refuge among the law abiding of us in a well-founded, however fraudulent belief that “a Muslim will never “rat” on another Muslim”. We must purge our community of these lawbreakers and send a clear message that henceforth we’re turning them over if they’re dirty. Enough is enough!
“Never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change that which is in themselves”
We are not held accountable for the absence of an “Islamic State” – nor do I even have a clear notion of what that term means anymore – but we are held accountable for “enjoining the good and forbidding the evil” in the here and now, under the laws in which we live.
I was sent the public records of the Al-Arian trial and I feel it my duty to tell the Muslims that they are blindly defending someone who admitted to helping terrorists. This is why I implore all of those who are going around defending this man to read the public records

“But when it came to blowing up women and children on buses, did you leap into action then? Did you offer to form a committee to protect the innocent? Did you call your fellow directors and enlist their aid in stopping the bombing or even stop the targeting of the innocent? No. You lifted not one finger, made not one phone call. To the contrary, you laughed when you heard about the bombings, what you euphemistically call ‘operations.” You even pleaded for donations to pay for more such operations.” – Judge Moody
