Mosque with troubling ties troubled by a Note

Ever since 9/11/01, one of the most frustrating realities for westerners has been the deafening silence from ‘moderate’ Muslims. Now, a note taped to the front door of a Mosque in Murrieta, California is causing the mosque to spring into action… against those who want them to speak out against terrorism. The Muslim Brotherhood in America wants Americans to believe that it rejects terrorism and is on the side of non-Muslim Americans. If so, what problem could the leaders of the Islamic Center of Temecula Valley in Murrieta possibly have with this note being taped to their front door?

Is this Note Threatening?

Via KABC (h/t BNI):

A troubling note was found taped on the front door of the Islamic Center of Temecula Valley in Murrieta.

It was discovered on Sunday during evening prayer.

The note makes mention of the recent mall attack in Kenya and the suicide bombing at a church in Pakistan.

The note did not contain any specific threats, but police are investigating.

The Islamic Center is offering a reward for information on who may have left the note. {emphasis ours}

Call us crazy but where is the ICOTV when it comes to the victims of terrorism the authors of this note clearly want its leaders to speak out against. No, instead, the threat of terrorism is trumped by the threat in a non-threatening note.

Then again, perhaps a look into the ICOTV’s associations may help us understand why it has such a problem with denouncing Islamic terrorists. Check out the list of speakers it promoted, who spoke at a conference and banquet just this past March. Take note of the first four speakers who are listed:

Dr. Jamal Badawi is a member of at least three separate Muslim Brotherhood groups and considers Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf Al-Qaradawi to be his mentor. Badawi also sanctioned the beating of wives under certain circumstances.

Yasir Qadhi wants the U.S. Constitution to be supplanted by Sharia law.

Imam Siraj Wahhaj is an unindicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center attack. He is also connected to Omar Abdel-Rahman, the “Blind Sheikh” who was convicted to life in prison for his role in that attack. Is it all that surprising to see the ICOTV object to a note that decries terrorism when it embraces a guy like Wahhaj?

Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi is the former president of the Islamic Society of North America who was embraced by the Bush administration in the days after 9/11.

Aside from cavorting with such nefarious characters, the ICOTV website features Hussam Ayloush on its Resources page. Ayloush is the Executive Director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Los Angeles (CAIR-LA), a Muslim Brotherhood front group. Last year, Ayloush defended Hamas and referred to Salam Al-Marayati – the Executive Director of the Muslim Publica Affairs Council (MPAC) as “one of the major mainstream American Muslim leaders.”

As for the note, perhaps the greatest irony is that police are investigating to find out who put it there instead of investigating the mosque itself.

This metaphor needs no explanation:
