Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, the director of outreach at the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia and the head of government relations for the Muslim Alliance of North America, told EPA officials his comments might be upsetting to some.
“I believe sometimes the war on terror is really a euphemism for the wars for oil and natural gas,” Abdul-Malik said at the all-day comment session held at EPA headquarters in Arlington. “Maybe if it were the Hindus who had oil under their feet there would be Hindu fundamentalists and extremists.”
Abdul-Malik called for the creation of new sources of energy that are clean and renewable: “America has the opportunity once again to lead -- to lead the world against the new terror, climate change.” Abdul-Malik said.
Let's look at this guy...
Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center.
The mosque has been a place of worship for notable terrorists and extremists including Abdurahman Alamoudi, who attended the mosque before his September 2003 indictment for illegal fnancial dealings with Libya, and Hamas political leader Mousa Abu Marzook, who attended the mosque while living in the United States.
Also, he's the head of government relations for the Muslim Alliance of North America.
Headed by Siraj Wahhaj, believed to be a co-conspirator to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center
It sounds kind of scary, with all its scary connections.
MANA is part of the American Muslim Task Force on Civil Rights and Elections (AMTF), a national coalition of some of the largest Muslim organizations in the U.S., whose common objectives are to "[m]ainstream the American Muslim community" and work for "the empowerment of [that] community and for the protection of its rights." MANA's fellow AMTF members include the American Muslim Alliance, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Muslim Students' Association of the U.S. and Canada, the Muslim Ummah of North America, Project Islamic Hope, and United Muslims of America.
It also appears to be rather hostile towards Israel.
MANA chose not to endorse or participate in the May 14, 2005 "Free Muslims March Against Terror," an event whose purpose was to "send a message to the terrorists and extremists that their days are numbered ... [and to send] a message to the people of the Middle East, the Muslim world and all people who seek freedom, democracy and peaceful coexistence that we support them."
This guy is telling us that Mother Nature is a terrorist?
Talk about projection! Of a very bizarre kind. Mother Nature a terrorist! What next?
