As the right to say Merry Christmas, and speak of anything relating to Christianity in public institutions dwindles across America, the right of Muslims to speak about Islam grows.
In this case, a Metro Nashville Public school, Gower Elementary, has opened its doors to the Islamic Center of Nashville’s nearly completed Bellevue mosque to hold a fundraising lunch. While this may be a test of separation of church and state, are the leaders of the Islamic Centers presenting Islam as a way of life rather than a religion to gain access to publicly funded venues?
The obvious question is why a taxpayer funded school is allowing a “religious” institution to raise money for itself ? The other question should be why is a Muslim Brotherhood organization being allowed to conduct anything at all within our country?
The Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN) is owned and run by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) which is funded by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). This is the warranty deed of the ICN with the same address as ISNA.
The Islamic Society of North America is the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization in the United States. In addition to its Muslim Brotherhood affiliations, the current imam, Ossama Muhammad Bahloul ( a speaker at the luncheon) hails from Cairo Egypt, where he attended Al-Azahar University, which is dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood. Not only does the Muslim Brotherhood use the university to recruit thousands of students to adopt ISIS-style beliefs, the Brotherhood used the organization to train young people for combat, including members of Al-Qaida.
In 2017, students from another Nashville public school, Meigs Middle Magnet School, attended what was supposed to be a lesson in “history” at the Islamic Center of Nashville, (ICN) but that quickly turned into a session in dawa ( the proselytizing of Islam) . Here in this audio, the speaker,
Dina Sirois, the mosque’s operations director, suggests when the students leave the mosque, they will have a compartment in their brain filled with “Islam stuff”. Pure indoctrination.
The Islamic Center of Nashville is the same mosque where Carlos Bledsoe also known as Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad joined while attending Tennessee State University. After becoming a member of the ICN, Carlos was sent to Yemen, where he thought he would be learning Arabic, but instead was exposed to radical, anti-American propaganda, and was “brainwashed”, according to his father Melvin Bledsoe of Memphis TN. Carlos changed his name to Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, after the imam at that time at the ICN. In 2009, Carlos went to Little Rock Arkansas where he shot and killed 2 soldiers in the name of Allah.
This is the same mosque singer Cat Stevens, now known as Yusef Islam, donated $17,000 to, to help purchase the building and the adjacent lot. In the 1990’s Stevens was banned from entering the United States after he raised tens of thousands of dollars for Hamas in cooperation with its British fundraising arm, known as the Relief Fund for Lebanon and Palestine. Hamas is a designated terrorist organization in the U.S.
The Islamic Center of Nashville is the same mosque that invites speakers such as Siraj Wahhaj– who was raised as a Baptist but converted to Islam under the leadership of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. He is the imam at the al-Taqwa mosque in New York. He preaches that the U.S. should and will become an Islamic state because “Islam is better than democracy.” What does Wahhaj tell his audiences?
“Islam is better than democracy. Allah will cause his deen [Islam as a complete way of life], Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what? It will happen.”
“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us,” he said in 1992.
“You don’t get involved in politics because it’s the American thing to do. You get involved in politics because politics are a weapon to use in the cause of Islam.”
The Islamic Center of Nashville has quite a different persona behind its closed doors, yet in public they preach peace and tolerance. There is nothing tolerant or peaceful about the Muslim Brotherhood. Do no believe for one second they are only a political party here to work with America. Their beliefs are completely antithetical to the American way of life. Yet, our schools, churches and communities continue to embrace them while dismissing their own.
This is who and what Nashville public schools have exposed your children to. Wake up people.
