This is not surprising — silver-tongued Muslim leaders dupe the West while pursuing supremacist goals. When the toll of jihadi wars becomes impossible to ignore, Muslim leaders like the Sheikh (and Hamas-CAIR) offer limpwristed condemnations of beheadings and such, but never condemn the Islamic texts and teachings that command such actions.
They give Western media and corrupt politicians just enough to silence criticism of the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth.
- Anti-Semitic and anti-American Islamic scholar
- “They [Americans] were ungrateful for the bounties of Allah, and so Allah caused them to taste fear and hunger.”
Hamza Yusuf converted to Islam at age seventeen. Today he may be the West’s most influential Islamic scholar. With a reputation for hostility toward the United States and Israel, he commonly appears as a guest speaker at events organized by various
chapters of Muslim Brotherhood groups like Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada.On September 9, 2001 – just two days before the al Qaeda attacks against America – UCLA’s Al-Talib magazine co-sponsored a benefit dinner titled “Justice for Imam Jamil Al-Amin” (aka H. Rap Brown) at UC Irvine. Al-Amin had recently been convicted of murdering an Atlanta police officer who was attempting to arrest him. Among the speakers at this benefit was Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, who spoke about the fate he foresaw for America:
They [Americans] were ungrateful for the bounties of
Allah, and so Allah caused them to taste fear and hunger. That is one reason and, I would say, that this country is facing a very terrible fate. The reason for that is that this country stands condemned. It
stands condemned like Europe stood condemned for what it did. . . .
This country [America] unfortunately has a great, a great tribulation coming to it. And much of it is already here, yet people are too to illiterate to read the writing on the wall
