Last week, Circanada reported that controversial Muslim American activist Linda Sarsour would be speaking in Toronto in early October of 2018. The conference where this activist would be speaking is sponsored by the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and is to be held at The International Centre, Mississauga. link
In addition to Ms Sarsour, imam Siraj Wahhaj will also speak. Mr Wahhaj is a controversial Brooklyn imam who was on a list of people who “may be alleged as co-conspirators” to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, according to court documents released by prosecutors.
Ms Sarsour has looked upon Siraj Wahhaj as her mentor.
Mr Wahhaj is imam of Al-Taqwa mosque in Brooklyn, New York and the leader of The Muslim Alliance in North America. He was also the former vice-president of the Islamic Society of North America. This mosque has attracted radical speakers over the years.
He is also the father of the younger Siraj Wahhaj who was found with 11 children and four adults living in “filthy” conditions at a compound in Amalia, New Mexico. Prosecutors also alleged in court documents that Wahhaj, 39, was teaching the children to commit school shootings. The documents claim Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound with the children.
Siraj Wahhaj senior lectured in Toronto in 1993. Within his lecture, we see not only the numerous conspiracy theories concerning terror attacks, but his opinions on the possible role of Mossad in the World Trade Center bombing. He also focuses very strongly on the furtherance of the Ummah (Muslim community). His hatred and distrust of the West is very evident.
Following are some excerpts of that speech:
“You can’t be like them [non-Muslims], man,you got to be different from them [non-Muslims]. You got to say: Here, come, come Madam, come follow me, come, let me show you how to live a life. Come sir, come Madam, come Prime Minister, come representative, come politician, come, come here. I’ll be an example for you here…
Why the Muslims? Because really there is no more power on this earth that can bring justice on this earth than Muslims.
Now, we talked about unity. Let’s keep the community together. Get all communities in Toronto getting together in the sake of Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He.
Brothers and sisters, don’t you know that by the end of the year 2050 in America white people, European Americans will be a minority, and do you know Islam is growing so fast, 6 millions, 8 million Muslims in America.
Muslims are growing. Don’t you see? They know it and if they ever unite, man, what a powerful group it would be.
You’ll see, Islam is rising everywhere. The numbers are phenomenal. But there is a problem. The problem is, we can’t see them [Muslims] getting together, because somebody is working to keeps us apart.
If the trend continues, dominated by Muslims, it can end up with power, political power.
These women there, these Muslim women who are the vanguards, who dare to be the first to step out to please Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He, can have an impact on the Canadian people and the American people, and you’ll see, these sisters [who wear hijab] will bring a transformation in the rest of the world.
Everywhere you go. Let the people Canadians, let them see us. Don’t hide. Don’t hide. Get up. Get out and be proud of your deen [religion of Islam]. If you do this brothers and sisters, watch, you’ll see hundreds of thousands and millions of Canadians A. are accepting Islam or B. at least becoming friends of Muslims.
I pray to continue the success of Toronto. I pray to Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He, that Toronto can get be together and Vancouver and Saskatoon and Regina, in Winnipeg, in Montreal, in London in all of the cities in Canada, Allah Willing, we get together, Allah Willing, when that happens we’ll show the people that we are not the terrorists, we’ll expose the terrorists and bring the people to guidance, Allah Willing.”
