President Barack Obama once told the New York Times that the Islamic call to prayer was “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset.” On November 14th, leaders from Islamic groups with distinct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood treated the pulpit of a Christian Cathedral as a Minaret and delivered that call.
The date of this was not accidental. Exactly 100 years earlier to the day, as Andrew Bostom notes, Ottoman Sheikh ul-Islam issued fatwas that called for the mass slaughter of Christians. It was these fatwas that set the stage for the Armenian genocide.
Most Americans scoff when they hear honest Muslims like Anjem Choudary say the flag of Islam will fly over the White House. The truth is that Islam has been planting its flag inside the most respected institutions of the U.S. for years now.
One day before the Washington Cathedral was converted to a mosque, House Speaker John Boehner – on the floor of the House of Representatives – waved the white flag of surrender when he introduced Imam Hamad Chebli to deliver an Islamic prayer. Boehner committed treason in the process.
One day later, Chebli was in attendance at the Washington National Cathedral. South Africa’s Ambassador to the U.S. Ebrahim Rasool, who is also a Muslim scholar, and Mohammed Magid, the President of the largest Muslim Brotherhood front group in the United States (ISNA) both issued the call to prayer from the pulpit.
The video of the entire event is well over an hour long. In an effort to save time, the video is posted several times below but will start at different times.
Let’s start with Magid’s time in the pulpit of the Cathedral. The video is cued up to the point when Magid is treating the pulpit as a minaret, where he delivers the Muslim call to prayer. Magid stops at the 4:00 mark and then explains his call. Put simply, Magid was allowed to pray to a God that rejects the Holy Spirit and the idea that God gave His only Son to the world:
To many, that was an innocent act. The truth is that it was a declaration of conquest and an act of blasphemy against Christianity perpetrated more by those who allowed Magid to speak than by Magid himself. Fortunately, at least one woman understood what Magid was about to do. This is what happened moments before Magid spit on Christianity from the pulpit of a Cathedral:
Some time after Magid spoke, South African Ambassador Rasool spoke. It’s cued up to start when he – like Magid – begins chanting. If you find yourself not being able to stomach all of it, you can fast forward to 21:17 to check out his sermon. Take note at the 22:18 mark when Rasool commits unadulterated blasphemy against Christianity, by reciting the Shahada and says:
“There is no God but God (Allah) and that Muhammad is the only slave and messenger of God.”
It is important to keep in mind that as Rasool denies the Trinity, the foundation on which that very church was built was being spat upon while the Episcopalian Crucifix behind him may as well have been thrown out with the woman who objected to the blasphemy of her faith.
The first Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt delegation to visit the US came directly from the airport to his residence. The Free Syrian Army – an armed opposition group in Syria that wants President Bashar al-Assad removed – has also knocked on the embassy’s door for advice.
Rasool has spent four years running a public diplomacy campaign, advocating tolerance and peace in Nelson Mandela’s name and selling Africa and South Africa to the world.
Once again, we see the connection between the Syrian rebels and the Muslim Brotherhood, a connection politicians in the west just can’t bring themselves to face (Boehner included).
At the 37:30 mark, in an ironic moment of truth, Rasool says the following:
“This event could not have been more appropriately inspired than by the life, legacy and values of Nelson Mandela…”
As Shoebat.com reported, the life, legacy and values of Mandela are quite disturbing and include a love of Yasser Arafat.
Be prepared to take another blood pressure pill as you watch the Cathedral’s Dean Gary Hall speak. It’s cued up at a point where he cites the Qur’an as a source for quotes from Jesus (not the Gospels) and then denounces “extremist Christians” (apparently, Christians who reject blasphemy are now extremists). Hall has no idea that he is being silently mocked by Muslims in attendance just like Jonathan Gruber mocked the ‘stupidity of the American voter’ when talking about how Obamacare was passed.
At the 1:13:50 mark, Hall publicly rejects the Great Commission from his own pulpit when he says we shouldn’t try to “convert each other”, which runs exactly counter to Matthew 28:16-20:
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Hall rejected Christianity from his own pulpit:
This phenomenon, of church leaders like Hall willfully surrendering the fundamental pillars of their own faith in the name of interfaith dialogue, diversity and tolerance is not new. There is a willingness among weak Christian leaders like Hall to forfeit their own faith while arrogantly accusing those who object of being extremists.
Here is a short video of Hall being interviewed by a Breitbart reporter about his egregious decision to open the Cathedral’s doors to the Muslim Brotherhood:
Have a look at this photo of Imam Chebli posted to the Islamic Society of Central Jersey (ISCJ) website. It was taken inside a Christian church at Christmas time. Notice how the pastor on the far left is all smiles, beaming at the notion of interfaith outreach. Chebli doesn’t seem nearly as thrilled:
Again, this is not new. As Shoebat.com has reported on before, check out this 1998 photo of an aspiring interfaith pastor named Clark Lobenstein, beaming with a smile of hope from ear to ear, while wearing his interfaith stole. The Muslim leaders flanking him aren’t nearly as happy:
The man on the left in the above photo is the former Chairman of the very notorious Dar al-Hijrah mosque that once had Anwar al-Awlaki as its Imam and was visited by three 9/11 hijackers. The man on the right is Rateb al-Nabulsi, who wants to see the extermination of Israel, as the stole he’s wearing in this photo indicates:
It’s not just churches that Muslim Brotherhood leaders attempt to conquer in the name of interfaith outreach. Here is ISNA President Magid and a predecessor of his who served as the ISNA President at the time of the 9/11/01 attacks, Muzammil Siddiqi, inside a synagogue in Warsaw, Poland:
As Shoebat.com reported, just three days after the 9/11 attacks, then President George W. Bush – much to his disgrace – shared the pulpit with Siddiqi at the very same national cathedral:
