Signs Of The Times: Extremist Imam To Hold Fundraiser In Florida For America’s First Muslim College

What is equally as outlandish here is the fact that an institution of ‘higher learning’ – whose own ideology is entirely based upon the absurd irrationalities of a man who believed in the health benefits of drinking camel urine, who believed that Jews were descendants of apes and pigs and who believed that the earth was flat – is also providing a course offering ‘a comprehensive overview’ of logic …

By Ryan Mauro, Radical Islam – “A fundraiser will be held for Zaytuna College, America’s first Muslim college, at the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center in Gainesville, Florida on Saturday, November 3. The featured speaker is one of Zaytuna’s founders, Imam Zaid Shakir, an Islamist cleric whose extremism has been repeatedly documented by RadicalIslam.org. The lecture is free of charge, but tickets for the dinner reception afterwards are $50.

The New York Times reported in 2006 that Shakir ‘said he still hoped that one day the United States would be a Muslim country ruled by Islamic law,’ and that he supports accomplishing this non-violently. He says that Islam justifies the hijacking of ‘an airplane filled with the 82nd Airborne’ and that the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon by Hezbollah was not an act of terrorism.

On September 28, Zaytuna College posted a lecture on YouTube that begins with Shakir condemning the murder of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Libya, immediately followed by a condemnation of how eight Afghan women were ‘brutally murdered by NATO bombs.’ In April, he published a poem depicting the U.S. as a racist, imperialist country whose soldiers rape young girls and kill Muslim civilians without remorse.

In May 2009, Shakir wrote that the U.S. has a ‘pattern of demonization, destabilization and the invasion of hapless Third World nations.’ Among those ‘demonized’ by the U.S. are Osama Bin Laden, the Taliban, Saddam Hussein, Hugo Chavez and Muammar Qaddafi, he says. He also teaches that the U.S. is run by a ‘small oligarchy.’

In an article published in October, 2007, Shakir objects to President Bush’s use of the term ‘Islamic fascists’ by arguing that the Bush Administration and ‘neoconservatives’ are the true fascists. He says it is a ‘big lie’ that ‘so-called Islamic Fascism threatens Western Civilization.’ He gives support to 9/11 conspiracy theories, writing that the attacks ‘occurred under dubious circumstances that have yet to be thoroughly examined.’ He criticizes the ‘process of vilification’ against Iranian President Ahmadinejad and characterizes Al-Qaeda, Hamas and jihadists in Iraq, Kashmir and Chechnya as fighters against unjust policies.” Read more.

    muslim college = Oxymoron.
    muslims and higher learning = mutually exclusive
    muslims and logic = mutually repellent forces, like magnetic poles of same same type.
