Yesterday Muslim convert Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum was taken off a terror bound bus in California and arrested for aiding and abetting the jihadi group, Al Qaeda. Another Muslim busted for jihad in America.
This is hardly new or unique. We see these reports daily. Muslims and converts to Islam wage jihad in the cause of Islam. They cite quran, chapter and verse. Muslims worldwide continue the 1,400-year-old war to impose Islam across the world -- all citing the same Islamic texts and teachings.
There is a problem in Islam.
So what is the response of the Muslim community? Is it to call for the expunging of the quran of the violent texts that call for jihad? No.
What we do see is this Islamic pattern of stealth jihad. Muslim Brotherhood groups issue pro-forma, fill-in-the-blank condemnations after jihadi attacks or arrests (i.e., the Boston bombing), but they never address the Islamic texts that inspire jihad; nor do they attempt to organize programs that intervene in the recruitment of young Muslims or Muslim converts to jihad. What are the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, CAIR, ICNA ISNA, et al doing to stop the mosques preaching and teaching jihad? Nothing. Instead, these Muslim groups urge Muslims not to talk to law enforcement (right photo: CAIR poster), and they seek to dismantle counter-terror programs in the USA.
Why isn't the Muslim community trying to reform Islam? Why aren't Muslim groups shutting down mosques that teach and preach jihad? What mosque did Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum attend?
Here is the Muslim response to the arrest of California Muslim convert Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum. Obfuscation, cover-up and deceit. The bottom line is that they know exactly what Ghannoum is doing and why.
(October 11, 2013) The Islamic Shura Council of Southern California has learned that an individual named Sinh Vinh Ngo Nguyen, a convert to Islam who also goes by Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum was arrested today. The federal indictment alleges that he falsified his personal information on his passport application and also provided material support to al-Qaeda, a designated terrorist group.Lies and obfuscation. It has everything to do with Islam.
We share the collective concern for the safety of our communities and security of our nation.
We ask that law enforcement officials and members of the media refrain from assuming that the alleged criminal's wrongful conduct, if any, was a product of his self-proclaimed faith or associations with members of the southern California Muslim community.
We will continue to follow the case as more details emerge.
