Press Kicked Out of US Islamist Conference Against ‘Islamophobes’

Sign at the “Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect” conference read “[No to] War Terror Islamophobia.”

Less than two weeks after the massacre of French journalists for insulting Mohammed, the founder of Islam, American Islamists held a conference last Saturday titled, “Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect.”

Only selected press was allowed into the event and only for the first 20 minutes.

The conference was billed as a fundraiser to establish a “Strategic Communication Center” to combat “Islamophobia” and train young Muslims in media relations.

A former member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network, Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, has gone on record about a private meeting in the early 1990s of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity.

The participants, he recalls, agreed to use the term “Islamophobia” as a political weapon. “This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics,” Muhammad said.

Training this target audience of young Muslims was, among others, the extremist Imam Siraj Wahhaj, labeled as someone who may be an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wahhaj supports the implementation of sharia law including all its brutal punishments…

    “Only selected press was allowed into the event and only for the first 20 minutes”.

    The New York Times? CNN, CBS, ABC, MSNBC News? Probably these got in.

    Great to see Watters expand his world into extreme diversity.

    JESSE WATTERS: Seems to be a lot of turmoil in that part of the world, a lot of beheadings, stonings of women. Why is that tolerated in the Muslim world?

    KORAN GUY: Because that’s what we believe. It says in the Koran that women shouldn’t be able to you know go out in public just you know wearing regular clothes.

    JESSE: When women are allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, do you think that’s right?

    KORAN: I just believe what the koran says because I’m a Muslim.

    JESSE: So you believe in subjugating women because that’s what the koran says?

    KORAN: No.

    JESSE: Would you like sharia law in America?

    KORAN: Yes. That would be nice.

    Methinks the posters are meant to read “No to War on Terror” rather than “No to War, Terror” which would be unislamic.

      Syntax is everything. It’s the difference between, “Let’s eat Grandma”‘ and “Let’s eat, Grandma”.

    It’s sad to see so many target rich environments going un-exploited.
