Muslims of the Americas: In Their Own Words RULE

Muslims of the Americas
Muslims of the Americas (MOA) is a virulently anti-Semitic, Islamic extremist group with ties to Al-Fuqra, a terrorist organization that has carried out firebombings and murders in the United States. MOA claims to have offices in six U.S. cities and Toronto and maintains secluded residential communities in New York, Virginia and California. The group's Web site and e-mails have featured writings by notorious anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers, including Michael Hoffman and former Klansman David Duke.

MOA was founded and is led by the radical Pakistani cleric El Sheikh Sayyid Mubarik Ali Jilani (commonly known as Sheikh Jilani or Sheikh Gilani). Based in Lahore, Pakistan, Jilani established MOA in 1980, after arriving in the United States for the first time. In the 1980s, Jilani, who claims to be a direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, actively recruited American Muslims to fight against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. MOA claims to have offices in six U.S. cities and Toronto, and it maintains secluded residential communities in New York, Virginia, California, and possibly other states. The group also runs a Web site and an e-mail mailing list.

The available evidence strongly suggests that MOA has served as a corporate front for another group founded by Sheik Jilani, the terrorist organization Al-Fuqra, which has committed firebombings and murders on U.S. soil. Both Sheikh Jilani and MOA officials deny that Al-Fuqra even exists, and MOA claims to be a "peaceful" group. Though relatively few members of MOA have been arrested for criminal activity, two residents of the MOA community in Virginia were recently arrested for firearms violations, and a resident of the MOA community in California was recently arrested for the murder of a Sheriff's Deputy.

Muslims of the Americas: In Their Own Words

Here are examples of anti-Semitic, anti-Christian,anti-American, and homophobic statements made by MOA, as well as comments that promote violence:

On Jews

"Jews are an example of human Satans. This is why Jews are the founders of Satan worship and Masonic lodges, and are now trying to take over the entire globe in which the global religion is to be Satanism….In the US there are now thousands of temples where Satan is worshipped. This Satanism has now become the ultimate tool in the hands of Zionists. "

-- "Satanism," MOA Web site

"The enemies of Islam all over the world under the leadership of the Zionist New World Order are poised to eliminate the Ummah [the worldwide Muslim community] or so is their conspiracy….We thus find today that all Muslim countries are ruled by kufirized [infidel] locals operating under the guise of Islam. All of these rulers are thoroughly under the Zionist New World order in every sphere of their mental outlook and conception. They today rule the World of Islam on behalf of their masters who dictate all the terms….Without Islam there is no Ummah, and no force to contest the Kufr Zionist New World Order….As we all know the Yahood (Jews), are master conspirators. They plot and plan for a century ahead. Since they are deprived of true belief in spite of their overt profession of faith and religion, they labor under the misconception that their plans will always remain on course….The setbacks which the enemies of Allah, are experiencing and which are impeding the full achievement of their satanic goals, all of which is part of the Divine Scheme of save the Ummah from annihilation."

"Every God-fearing individual, whether in America or abroad, must become informed of the heinous, barbaric, and purely sub-human nature of Zionism and all of its offshoots. It is the duty of every individual to become familiar with the nature and ways of Zionism and become educated to the whims and craftiness of these devils…"

On Christians

"If you ask any Christian 'What is meant by belief in God Almighty?' he will not be able to give you any rational explanation. On the contrary, he will confuse you, and damage you psychologically…Christians would rather submit to the theory that they have killed their god and now believe in the supremacy and power of Satan. Try to imagine the type of mentality that is build upon such a belief: Masochism, suicide, Satanism…they confuse the matter still more by introducing the fable of the Risen Christ, but have never produced a solitary witness to testify that he or she actually saw Christ ascending…One certain factor in the propagation of this nonsense is that the priests want poor, simple folk to believe in Jesus as the Son of God, whereas Jesus himself never proclaimed to be such… The vicars of Christ, after having completely confused western man in the matter of belief, use this method to manipulate the people in such a way that the priests are accepted as gods who have the power to send people to Heaven, Hell, or atone their sins… By having put their god on a crucifix as opposed to executing Satan, they not only have blasphemed against the Wisdom and Judgment of God Almighty, but reduced Him to a role of subservience to Satan. Similarly, by attributing the words of the Bible to God, they also attribute all their fallacies, inaccuracies, irrationalities, lies, and contradictions to Him!"

On Gays

"The agents of Shaytan (Satan) are many. Many efforts are put forth to mislead masses into darkness via Satanic philosophies, ideologies, and schisms brought forth to divide and keep humanity divided, resulting in immorality, bigotry, break-down of family structure, and numerous unspeakable crimes against humanity. A perfect example of this point would be homosexuality."

On America

"America is no longer the home of the free and the land of the brave. The constitution and the Bill of rights are just pieces of paper that don't mean a damn thing anymore, unless you are white and an anti Muslim hatemonger of course. The Ku Klux Klan no longer need to wear pointed hoods and remain underground, as they are sitting in the oval office and walking the halls of congress."

On Violence

"All Muslim nations are in danger because the enemy will not rest until it has subjugated (or eliminated) ISLAM from the map, while it defends the terrorism of Israel….We must put a stop to the violence and aggression against our peoples, by our people by force if necessary. We must work with each other and collectively refuse to accept the injustice and aggression of the West and [its] protege Israel. If we take these steps be assured that ALLAH…will do the rest."

-- MOA E-mail, December 14, 2001

"The Ummah cannot afford to sit back complacently as an idle observer witnessing his own destruction. Along with a return to Allah, Muslims are required to sacrifice and aid those who are in the forefront in the field to guard the Ummah and Islam. Rasulullah (Sallallahu-'Alayhi-Wa-Sallam) said 'that there will always remain a small devoted band of his followers who will remain ever vigilant, holding aloft the Standard of Islam...exposing themselves to dangers and sacrificing their all for the Love of Allah...Muslims who are unable to enter into this field of effort and sacrifice are at least required to aid this Holy Task with their Du'as [prayers] and financial resources and with whatever other means they possess. If the Muslims fail in this duty, they will most assuredly be apprehended by the Punishment of Allah..."
