Right here in Texas: Islamic conference features speaker implicated in WTC bombing

Last night, I was at an event in Austin where Governor Rick Perry described me as “the newest Texan.” I figured coming to the Lone Star state, there’d be some things I could put behind me — namely the stealth Islamic jihadist presence that we know exists in South Florida at the University of South Florida, Florida Atlantic University, and throughout the area.

Some of you may remember the exchange I had back during a town hall meeting in Pompano Beach with the leader of the South Florida Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Nazir Hamze. Here’s the video to refresh your memory.

It’s important we know the history of Dar-al-Islam and its near 1400-year fight against Western civilization and its desire for establishment of the proclaimed caliphate by conquest.

Well, it seems the same Islamist presence is looking for a “base” (which is by the way, what “al-Qaida” means) for operations here in the Dallas metroplex area, and in fact has a big conference planned with some “heavy hitters” scheduled to speak.

As reported by Western Journalism, “An Islamic conference scheduled for next Saturday in Texas features two speakers who have advocated for Sharia law, and one of them was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center (WTC) bombing. “

“The group Sound Vision is hosting a conference on January 17 called “Stand with the Prophet in Honor and Respect” in Garland, Texas, about a half hour from downtown Dallas. This event is designed to combat “Islamophobia” and “Stand with the Prophet,” according to a promotion on Sound Vision’s website: “Sound Vision is focused on building the Strategic Communication Center that will Inshallah lead the effort against Islamophobia by keeping our neighbors as friends and young Muslims as strong Muslims as healthy citizens.”

What I find incredible is that the event is designed to “combat Islamophobia” — which to me means how do we condemn those who are speaking the truth against Islamo-fascism and get them to self-censor.

I’m sorry, but after what just occurred in France we must be more vigilant and resolute against the cancerous message that is being promulgated all across our country. And the fact that, just as with CAIR, we are allowing an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorist attack to have a platform in America — well, that’s very disconcerting to say the least.

I have no issue with freedom of speech, but when that speech is antithetical to the values of our Constitutional Republic, there is an issue. That speech is not free, it is seditious — and Sharia Law is not in keeping with the principles and values of our rule of law, the U.S. Constitution.

Western Journalism reports, “at least two of the presenters scheduled to speak at the event in suburban Dallas next weekend have a checkered past. It has been documented that Brooklyn-based Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who was an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 WTC bombing, has preached in favor of Sharia, documented as recently as 2007: “Islam is better than democracy. Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what? It will happen.”

This imam is scheduled to speak not far from the location of our new home. Shouldn’t we ask this fella, what do you mean, “Islam is better than democracy?” Do we care so little for our system of governance that anyone can openly promote its fall? When a nation can’t even defend its own system of governance, we have men like those in Paris who felt emboldened to conduct their barbaric act of silencing those satirical cartoonists — as they stated, “we have avenged the prophet.”

At least we have Egyptian President al-Sisi who will stand up to these incendiary imams, but maybe to some here in America, democracy does need to be conquered. We’re already seeing those on the left blaming the cartoonists. We have those who believe the assailants were justified, as they had been offended. These are some very conflicting messages — but they are emboldening messages to the champions of Islamic jihad.

According to The Clarion Project, Imam Wahhaj has also preached the following: “If Allah says 100 strikes, 100 strikes it is. If Allah says cut off their hand, you cut off their hand. If Allah says stone them to death, through the prophet Muhammad, then you stone them to death, because it’s the obedience of Allah and his messenger – nothing personal.”

Now yesterday we brought you the story about a simple memorial in a North Carolina city of a kneeling Soldier and a Christian flag that was deemed offensive, and a violation of separation of church and state.

Aren’t any secular humanist organizations offended when a religion advocates slicing off hands and stoning people to death? Why is it they’re so “offended” by a Judeo-Christian heritage, which advocates for unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Methinks I will side with the latter.

“Sound Vision’s founding chairman, Abdul Malik Mujahid, made similar comments in 1995, when he said: “Qital [killing] is an essential element of Islam. And sometimes you don’t like it.” Mujahid continued: “Qital is ordained upon you, though it is hateful to you, but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. “

Just so you know, Sound Vision isn’t something brand new. They’ve held other “conferences” in places like Long Island, New York, and Chicago (that figures).

I can’t support this conference being held here in Garland, Texas. The positions of these featured speakers are in contrast to our fundamental beliefs — but then again, perhaps they are part of the fundamental transformation of America.

The progressive socialists want to “turn Texas blue.” What is the objective of these Islamo-fascists?
