In an interview with Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly, a former attendee of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC) attended by Alton Nolen said that the mosque’s leaders preach hatred and anti-Semitism against that which is not of Islam. The man – whose identity was withheld – went by the name ‘Noor’ in the interview and even referenced sermons that called for the beheading of infidels.
One of the imams ‘Noor’ spoke of was Suhaib Webb. According to ‘Noor’, Webb said that the mosque supported Palestinian suicide bombings but that it wasn’t to be relayed to the media. In addition, ‘Noor’ also said of Webb that he was the Imam who insisted that eventually all non-Muslims would have to ‘convert or die’. Currently, Webb is the Imam at the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) attended by the Boston Marathon bombers (h/t BNI):
For some bizarre reason, Fox has taken down the interview. For now, it can be seen here:
Though Webb officially left the ISGOC in 2004 to attend Al-Azhar University in Cairo, he still gave sermons at his old mosque after returning in 2010. Here is a screen shot from the mosque’s website that shows Webb delivered two sermons as recently as October of 2013:
In Arabic, the term ‘Noor’ ironically means to illuminate or make clear. It’s not known if this is the origin of the chosen name of the interviewee but in the recent video from Suhaib Webb below, he refers to the term while talking about wanting to ‘benefit’ people and build trust. It’s quite the contrast when compared to Noor’s claim that Webb said the mosque supports suicide bombings but not to relay that to the media.
Another point to take note of is that Webb speaks of ‘Da’wa’ in this video, which refers to spreading Islam, he makes reference to loving everyone, including non-Muslims. What he doesn’t say – as Noor relays in his interview with Kelly – is that the love of non-Muslims ceases when they refuse to convert to Islam. In his interview with Kelly, ‘Noor’ said that Webb personally told him that all non-Muslims will eventually have to ‘convert or die’. That claim makes for quite the juxtaposition when compared to this little ditty from Webb (note the soothing music).
As Shoebat.com has reported, Webb also has connections to the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA. This mosque was home to Anwar al-Awlaki and visited by three 9/11 hijackers. Today, Shaker Elsayed is the Imam at Dar al-Hijrah.
Elsayed founded the Muslim American Society (MAS) to which Webb once belonged, as identified by this screen shot of the 2009 U.S.-Islamic World Forum (US-IWF) held in Doha, Qatar. Yes, David Petraeus was a speaker at that event:
The mosque in Boston at which Webb serves came up in a Congressional hearing two months after the Boston Marathon bombings in an exchange between Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and then FBI Director Robert Mueller. It’s important to note that Webb’s Boston mosque was founded by convicted terrorist Abdurahman Alamoudi, who also attended Dar al-Hijrah.
The most revealing portion of this exchange comes at the very end when Mueller denies knowing Alamoudi founded the Boston mosque, despite Alamoudi being arrested, tried and convicted on Mueller’s watch in 2004. Mueller was clearly agitated that Gohmert was onto the truth and should have been angrier that it was being suppressed:
