SAN DIEGO — The arrest of the leader of a City Heights mosque, a man described as a revered figure who was known for advocating nonviolence and tolerance, has stunned the close-knit Somali community in City Heights, where many refugees of the war-torn country live, work and pray.
Mohamed Mohamed Mohamud, 38, appeared in federal court Wednesday to answer to charges that he was involved in a conspiracy to provide money and other aid to al-Shabaab in Somalia, which U.S. authorities have designated a foreign terrorist organization.
* Qur’an 3:28 warns believers not to take unbelievers as “friends or helpers” (َأَوْلِيَا — a word that means more than casual friendship, but something like alliance), “unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them.”
This is a foundation of the idea that believers may legitimately deceive unbelievers when under pressure… For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda’ said, ‘We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.’
Mohamud is married and has several children, Hassan said Wednesday.
“He is the center of the community here,” Hassan said. “Everyone likes him. When anyone needs help, he is the first person to help. His arrest was very shocking. He is a godfather person to the community.”…
Americans need to understand this:
The word of a Muslim to a non-Muslim cannot be trusted – not because Muslims are bad people, but because of what the Koran and their religious leaders teach them, that is not only OK, but even a good thing to lie in order to promote Islam. Because of this, the promises and oaths of the followers of Islam cannot be trusted.
1. Their allegiance is to Allah and the Koran – they can pledge allegiance to the United States, but you cannot rely on their words being true.
2. They are taught that it is OK to lie to infidels
Don’t let yourselves be intimidated:
It is not a phobia to be concerned about Islam – a phobia is irrational, this is a very real threat.
“In the UK a name other than Mohammed is the current top name for newborn boys. Until that is one takes into account the FOURTEEN different spellings of that name (caused by illiteracy?) At that point M becomes the top name for newborn males.
Should we be scared? You bet.”
It is not bigotry to object to a system that teaches followers that non-Muslims are inferior and can be killed or subjugated.
It is not hatred to reject a political/religious structure that aims to erode and subvert American freedom.
