"...We must be terrorists, and we must terrorize the enemies of Islam, and frighten them, and disturb them, and shake the earth under their feet."
(Sermon by Sheik Abdel Rahman at an American mosque, just weeks prior to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing).
On October 1 2005, a young, long-bearded man cautiously placed a homemade bomb into his backpack and headed out of his home. The young man walked a short distance in the brisk October air as he nervously approached a fully packed sports arena filled with 84,000 unsuspecting sports fanatics.
The young man reached the front gates of the arena with the highly volatile explosive, which would later be identified as TATP (commonly referred to as the "terrorist weapon of choice"), strapped to his back. This was the same explosive material used in the London subway bombings in July of the same year.
All seemed to be going according to the young man's plan when, according to a witness, the young man fled after having been asked by a security guard if he could search his backpack before allowing him entry into the sports arena.
As the young man sat on a bench, (at this point) 100 yards away from his intended target, the sensitive bomb the young man had cautiously placed into his backpack just minutes earlier, exploded. The young man was left completely dismembered by the powerful blast.
Perhaps, this is an all-to-common occurrence in a place such as Israel, where homicide bombings have plagued Jewish communities for quite some time, or in the newly freed Iraq where terrorists seem determined to disrupt that country's march toward democracy.
What if it were to be asserted to the reader, however, that this attempted homicide bombing did not take place in terror-plagued Israel or in war-torn Iraq? More to the point, what if the reader were informed that this attempted terror strike took place on American soil!
Yes, this attempted homicide bombing (which went largely ignored by the mainstream media) took place during a football game in, of all places, Oklahoma University.
Have we somehow managed to attain your undivided attention?
Though the FBI and Oklahoma University President, David Boren, would later dismiss the apparent terror strike as a mere "lone suicide," this rashly drawn conclusion has proven to be a questionable theory at least, or a conspicuous cover-up at best.
Patrick Briley, whose investigative findings on the Oklahoma City bombing and 9/11 attacks were submitted to Senate high-level staff, explains:
"KMTV of Oklahoma has since reported that "Over 1000 pounds of explosives were found in Hinrichs' apartment," along with an array of "Islamic jihad materials."
Moreover, according to an Oklahoma police report, two days prior to his death Hinrichs "...tried to purchase close to 1000 pounds of ammonium-nitrate fertilizer (22 bags)." The same explosive material used by Timothy McVeigh in the first Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
Bone chilling, is it not?
It is in view of these staggering facts, that the "lone suicide" theory appears to lack a serious measure of credibility.
Now as we ponder the implications this inconvenient truth has left for us all, allow us to redirect the focus toward the disturbing question we find has now arisen:
Where does hatred's venomous fume so bewitch a young man, that strapping a bomb (laced with nails and other shrapnel material) to his back in order to eliminate innocent bystanders becomes an acceptable design?
I assure you, the answer to this question is one we will not find rolling from the lips of our nightly news anchors, or from the key strokes of many an American journalist. That elusive answer, however, is one that will not go un-dissected here:
The unassailable answer to that question fellow Catholics is:
In American mosques!
According to sworn testimony before the U.S. Senate by Stephen Schwartz, Director of the Islam and Democracy Program, "600 out of the official total of 1,200" mosques in the United States are under Wahhabi control (50%).
Mr. Schwartz acknowledged before the committee, however, that "Shia and other non-Wahhabi Muslim leaders estimate" the figure to be much higher, at "80%."
What exactly should this information mean to us?
Well allow us to sharpen the picture a bit more:
According to, David B. Ottaway, Staff Writer for the Washington Post, Wahhabism is a form of Islam that "arose in the mid-18th century in central Saudi Arabia" when its founder, Mohammad lbn Abdul Wahab, "sought to purify Islam and return it to its 7th century roots."
As we shall see, it is within this particular channel of information that the crux of the diabolical problem is laid bare.
For history unmistakably denotes the 7th century roots of Islam to be pure, blood curdling violence and brutality.
Perhaps, it is due this undeniable historical fact that Wahhabism, according to Schwartz's sworn
testimony, is "the most extreme...violent form of Islam." For if, Wahhabism is indeed the purified form of 7th century Islam, then by its very nature, it must be extreme and by its very nature, it must also be violent.
After all, was it not in the 7th century when Muhammad himself wielded his bloody sword and conquered Persia, Byzantium, and Abyssinia because the Christians who occupied these territories refused to embrace the Islamic heresy that crept out of the desert sands?
Was it not in the 7th century when in the prophet's murderous footsteps, Islam wreaked havoc throughout all of Christendom and overtook Damascus, Antioch, Jerusalem, Egypt, and extended its devilish wrath into Cilicia, and Caesarea of Capaddocia? Was it not in the 7th century when Islam carried out its bloody raids on Cyprus, Rhodes, Crete, and Sicily - Carrying off booty and thousands of slaves?
Yes, it was!
Let us not allow ourselves to be fooled. For these, are the merciless roots of 7th century Islam fellow Catholics. This, is Wahhabism. This is the "purified" form of Islam that today would fly airplanes into buildings filled with thousands of American citizens.
For according to sworn testimony before the U.S. Senate by Nina Shea of the Center for Religious Freedom, "Fifteen of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi subjects indoctrinated from young ages in...Wahhabi ideology."
And it is this most "extreme [and] violent" form of Islam that, according to non-Wahhabi Islamic leaders, permeates through the majority of American mosques!
In fact, Hinrichs (the failed Oklahoma homicide bomber), according to Briley, was seen for months prior to his terror strike "going in and out of the Norman mosque" in Oklahoma.
This particular mosque, according to, Christian Action Network, "is considered to be one of the most radical and controversial mosques in America."
It is a mosque that according to Briley, played host to terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui (the only co-conspirator ever convicted in the 9/11 attacks) as well as 9/11 hijackers Nawaf Al Hazmi, who eventually found aid and comfort in a San Diego mosque, Muhammad Atta, and Saudi Arabian - Wahhabi subject, Marwan Al Shehhi."
Furthermore, according to a motion filed by Zacarias Moussaoui in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the former Imam of the Norman mosque had knowledge, prior to the 9/11 attacks, that some sort of "jihad" mission was going to take place.
In the motion, Moussaoui stated:
"On August the 18 2001 Hussein Al attas (who was arrested with me on the 16 August) had a telephone conversation with the Imam of [the] Norman mosque from sherbune County Jail Minnesota. In Arabic...In this conversation the Imam says to Hussein Al attas, I heard you were going on jihad (holy war)."
Here we have what appears to be a clear-cut connection between five 9/11 conspirators, an American mosque, and its Imam.
Ultimately, Moussaoui and Al attas were released on $5,000 bail.
Just three weeks later, the world watched in horror as two of the tallest buildings in the world (filled with thousands of American citizens) "shook the ground beneath our feet" as they came crumbling down upon the streets of New York City.
In light of all of this, we are perhaps left to ponder the question:
Just how has the bitter fruit of Wahhabi Islam washed up on our American shores?
A good question deserving of a good answer.
According to overwhelming evidence, the undeniable fact is that Saudi Arabia, the kingdom that bred the majority of the 9/11 terrorists, has been exporting this terror-sprouting fruit into American mosques (as well as mosques throughout the world) for decades.
The "worldwide export of Wahhabi Islam," according to Ottaway, was "begun in 1962" and was regarded by the Saudi kingdom as a "sacred duty" for which no expense was to be spared.
In fact, in 2004 it was estimated by a Saudi analyst that the Saudi government invested "between $2 billion and $2.5 billion annually" on this devilish endeavor.
As it shall come to be seen, it is when tracking the vast Saudi money trail that the mosque-terror connection becomes alarmingly apparent. For this is when we find ourselves at the doorstep of many an American mosque and the intricate web of terror front organizations aligned with them.
In fact, 'AGAINST ALL HERESIES' has found two local chapters of such Saudi-funded front groups operating right here in Lexington KY. But we'll get to that soon enough.
For now, let us begin our site seeing from the Saudi money trail with an organization which Schwartz associates, with what he calls, "the Wahhabi lobby:”
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).
According to, DiscoverTheNetwork.org, ISNA was “Established in 1963 by the Saudi-funded Muslim Students' Association of the U.S. and Canada (MSA),” an organization which, according to FrontPageMagazine, has proven links to organizations operated by the Hamas terror network.
ISNA's deceptive mission statement reads, in part, as follows:
"[To function] as an association of Muslim Organizations and individuals that provide a common platform for presenting Islam...developing educational, social and outreach programs and fostering good relations with other religious communities..."
Sounds absolutely harmless.
Yet, camouflaged within a veil of devious double-talk and contradictory action we find the hard, cold semblance of truth:
In 2003, Senators Charles Grassley and Max Baucus listed the Saudi-funded ISNA as one of 25 American Muslim organizations that finance terrorism and perpetuate violence.
Now how exactly one fosters "good relations with other religious communities" while simultaneously financing terrorism and perpetuating violence is quite a perplexing proposal.
But hold on to your seats, for ISNA's proposed "mission" is immersed in such perplexity.
According to terrorism expert, Steven Emerson, this Saudi-funded organization, which professes to provide a common Muslim platform, "convenes annual conferences where Islamist militants have been given" that very platform "to incite violence and promote hatred."
Such Islamist militants have included, Al-qaeda supporter and PLO official, Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi, whose radical Islamic theology, according to Sherrie Gossett, of WorldNetDaily.com, “legitimizes homicide bombings.”
Concerning the diabolical practice, Al-Qaradhawi has written:
"Hamas operations are jihad and those who [carry them out and] are killed are considered martyrs."
In addition, according to Discover, Al-Qaradhawi has written the following concerning the Jewish people:
"There is no dialogue between them and us other then in one language - the language of the sword and force."
Al-Qaradhawi also happens to be a well known ideologue of the Muslim Brotherhood movement which, according to Gossett, has "spawned Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Al-quaeda and other terrorist groups."
Not surprisingly, ISNA has hosted a number of speakers from this radical movement which, according to, Discover "has supported waging Jihad against infidels," and whose prominent leaders, such as, Muhammad Mahdi Othman Akef, "have denounced the United States as a Satan."
Akef, has further stated:
"I have complete faith that Islam will invade Europe and America, because Islam has logic and a mission."
Also on the list of Islamist militants, is one Rashid Ghanushi, exiled leader of the Islamic Tendency Movement who has referred to Israel as a "Cancer" and to Jews as "Satans."
Such off-the-wall radicalism, however, is not confined to those who adorn the ISNA speaker's podium. ISNA board members have also been known to associate themselves with such radical behavior.
In October of 2000, Muzammil Siddiqui, director of ISNA's Orange County California chapter, took part in a Washington rally that, according to Gossett, was reduced to a virtual hate-fest in which the crowd chanted, "Death to the Jews."
Not to be outdone, Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who sits on ISNA's board of directors, is identified by multiple media sources as "an un-indicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings."
According to Gossett, Wahhah has urged followers to:
"Overthrow the U.S. system of government and set up an Islamic dictatorship."
Apparently, Wahha’s exhortation has not gone unheeded.
In 1993, two members of Wahha's (American) mosque pleaded guilty in connection with charges of plotting to kill the Secretary General of the United Nations, a U.S. Senator...and blow up major buildings and tunnels.
It appears that ISNA's skewed interpretation of "platform commonality" knows absolutely no bounds.
How about ISNA's proposed commitment to "developing...outreach programs?"
Well it was perhaps in keeping with that portion of their stated mission, that When Hamas leader and specially designated terrorist, Mousa Marzook, was arrested and eventually deported in 1997, the Saudi-funded ISNA reportedly raised money for the defense of the Palestinian terrorist.
Much more alarming than all of this, however, is what appears to be ISNA's warped rationale for what it apparently considers a productive form of "developing education programs."
You see, ISNA devotes most of its energy to providing Wahhabi indoctrination materials to the 50-79% of mosques it holds mortgages to through the North American Islamic Trust, another Saudi government-backed organization.
This, according to Sarah Downey and Michael Hirsh of Newsweek, includes the Norman mosque of Oklahoma, and the Islamic Center of San Diego, the mosque which eventually "provided aid and comfort to Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid Almihdhar" the two 9/11 hijackers "who helped fly American Flight 77 into the Pentagon."
Is it all beginning to fall into its sinister place?
The Saudi money trail is riddled with such terror front organizations whose American mosque connections appear suspect, to say the least.
Of particular interest is the organization over to our right:
The Muslim "civil rights" organization which bares the name of the, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
This particular organization, according to, Islamic Scholar, Daniel Pipes and Middle East Author, Sharon Chadha, likens itself to a Muslim NAACP.
CAIR's stated mission, much like ISNA's, appears quite reasonable, and worthwhile on the surface:
"To enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding."
Beneath the surface, however, lies the true face of this deviant organization.
Before we delve into the dark crevices of CAIR, however, let us first make the following note-worthy observation:
In 2004, a federal judge in Chicago found the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), partially liable for $156 million in damages for its role in aiding and abetting Hamas in the murder of David Boim, a 17 year old American citizen.
This is of particular significance since according to counter-terrorism expert, Matthew Epstein, CAIR was founded by Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad, former officials of the IAP.
Moreover, one of CAIR's founding directors was a man by the name of Rafeeq Jabar who served as President of the IAP.
Not surprisingly, the Saudi money trail, invariably leads to CAIR's welcoming doorstep.
In 1999, the Saudi based Islamic Development Bank (IDB) contributed $250,000 to CAIR. This Saudi-based institution, according to Pipes and Chadha, "also manages funds (Al-Quds, Al-qsa) which finance homicide bombings...by providing [finances] to the families of Palestinian martyrs."
In addition, the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) a Saudi-sponsored charity (also suspected of financing terror), announced in December of 1999 that it was "extending both moral and financial support to CAIR" to help it construct its $3.5 million headquarters in Washington D.C.
Furthermore, in June of 2003, Randal Royer, CAIR's communications Specialist and Civil Rights Coordinator was indicted on 40 counts of conspiring to help Al-qaeda and the Taliban in their battle against American troops in Afghanistan. He was later convicted of a lesser charge and sentenced to twenty years in jail.
In April 2005, Ghassan Elashi, founder of CAIR's Texas chapter, was convicted of knowingly doing business with ISNA's "outreach" recipient and Hamas terrorist, Mousa Marzook.
Rabih Haddad, a CAIR fund raiser, was arrested on terrorism related charges and deported from the United States for his subsequent work as Executive Director of the Global Relief Foundation. A charity which he co-founded in 2002 and which was designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing Al-qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
Additionally, according to Schwartz's sworn testimony before the U.S. Senate, CAIR along with ISNA are "the main organizations" responsible for carrying out Saudi Arabia's campaign of "Wahhabi control over [American] mosques."
This brings us to the local Lexington CAIR chapter.
Yes fellow Catholics, CAIR, the organization which Democratic Senator, Chuck Schumer, describes as an organization "which we know has ties to terrorism" and which Democratic Senator, Dick Durbin, observed "is unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its association with groups that are suspect," operates a chapter right here in our very midst.
In fact, Mr. Ihsan Bagby, who serves as President of the Lexington CAIR chapter and who sits on ISNA's advisory board, is an Associate Professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Kentucky.
Mr. Bagby also serves as the General Secretary of the Muslim Alliance of north America (MANA), an organization that, according to Discover, is headed by Sirah Wahhah, the Imam suspected of conspiring in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.
Isn't that lovely?
According to Pipes and Chadha, In the late 1980's Mr. Bagby stated that Muslims:
"Can never be full citizens of this country because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country."
Furthermore, according to Gossett, at a controversial 2004 Muslim conference in Orlando Florida, Mr. Bagby issued "repeated warnings...against losing distinctiveness through assimilation into the WASP culture of America."
(emphasis belongs to Gossett)
At the conference, Mr. Bagby further "characterized Muslim life in the U.S. today as being similar to persecution of Irish Catholics who were killed and whose churches were burned."
Could this be the rhetoric students are being subjected to at the University of Kentucky?
We would hope not.
Now, according to its website, CAIR-KY was established in 2004. CAIR-KY claims to have "developed strong relations with local leaders of the Christian and Jewish communities." All the while, CAIR National, sponsors events such as the Florida event cited above, where invited speakers included Islamic radicals "who have voiced support for [homicide] bombers and referred to Jews as Jewish crackers, apes, and pigs."
Ironically enough, this same organization which members of our government "know has ties to terrorism," has apparently been designated by that same government as the suitable organization for providing "sensitivity training" to Kentucky government officials, according to the CAIR-KY website.
CAIR has also provided this same "training," according to Pipes and Chadha, "to Kentucky law enforcement."
Moreover, according to the CAIR-KY website, in the Summer of 2006, CAIR-KY scheduled a meeting with the Assistant Principle of Tates Creek High School because the school's Summer reading program assigned a book that "falsely portrayed Islam as an overly conservative, backwards, and violent faith."
Yet CAIR itself, is an organization which our government "knows has ties to terrorism," whose members have been convicted of terror-related offenses, and which an array of terror experts have exposed as one of the major organizations in this country responsible for inundating American mosques with Wahhabi ideology, the most "overly conservative, backwards, and violent" form of the Islamic "faith."
The same ideology (let it not be forgotten) that inspires those who would ascribe to it, to fly airplanes into buildings filled with thousands of American citizens.
Are you kidding me CAIR?!
Additionally, during Israel's 2006 war against the terrorist organization Hezbollah, CAIR-KY joined forces with Life for Relief Development (LIFE) to "provide humanitarian relief supplies for delivery to Lebanon and the Palestinian territories."
A noble effort indeed, since those ravaged by war are absolutely in need of our help no matter which side of a war they might happen to be on.
The problem, however, is that LIFE is an organization that, according to Debbie Schlussel, who has long investigated the organization, "has openly admitted on its 1995-97 taxes to be a major funder of HAMAS."
Also, as early as September 2006, LIFE headquarters was raided by an FBI Terror Task Force that confiscated LIFE's computers along with boxes upon boxes of its documents.
In 2004, LIFE was subjected to the same action when "the U.S. Army raided its Iraqi headquarters, because LIFE was believed to be a major funder of insurgent terrorists in Iraq."
Now one would think, that CAIR-KY would have chosen better company with which to accomplish its humanitarian efforts.
This brings us to our next and final local front organization.
The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).
This particular front group is one that takes great pride in its professed freedom from foreign Muslim Money-sources.
Yet, according to, the Militant Islam Monitor, ICNA is an organization that has merged with the Muslim American Society (MAS). "An Al-qaeda linked group" which according to the Carolina Journal, "controls most mosques in the United States" and according to the Monitor, is "funded by [Wahhabi] Saudi Arabia."
Also, according to the Monitor, "one of ICNA's benefactors" just so happens to be "Saudi [Arabian] Sheik, Abdul Rahman Al Sudais." Sheik Al Sudais is the controversial Senior Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca who has referred to Jews as "The scum of the human race, the rats of the world...and the grandsons of monkeys and pigs."
According to the Monitor, Sudais has further "called [on] Muslims to attack Jews and American worshippers of the cross."
In spite of ICNA's staunch proclamation to the contrary, the money trail appears to lead directly to radical Wahhabi Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi money trail having been established, allow us to better acquaint ourselves with this dangerous organization:
Founded in 1971, according to Discover, ICNA is based in Queens, New York.
As with ISNA and CAIR, ICNA "has established a reputation for bringing anti-American radicals to speak at its annual conferences."
For example, at a December 2002 conference sponsored by ICNA and MAS, Muslim cleric, Shaker Elsayed, complained:
"About the subject unfairly named suicide bomber, homicide bombers, murderers, or killers. Our answer to this issue is simple...The Islamic scholars said whenever there is an attack on an Islamic state or occupation...the jihad is a must for everyone, a child, a lady and a man."
Much like ISNA and CAIR, according to Gossett, ICNA "boasts affiliations with many mosques...and is active in education and fund-raising relief efforts."
This becomes quite a troublesome revelation when juxtaposed with the knowledge that ICNA "is actually the U.S. division of Jam'at-i-Islami (JI), a Pakistan-based faction with ties to Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban," according to Gossett.
In fact, meeting notes from a forum sponsored by ICNA in New York City in the year 2000, indicate, "Qazi Hussein Ahmed, the President of JI, acted as the sole representative for the Islamic Circle of North America [ICNA]."
Meeting notes also warned that the United States was the "Antichrist" and declared that "jihad is on" against the "U.S. superpower."
ICNA's terror connections, 'AGAINST ALL HERESIES' has come to learn, are no secret to Kentucky government officials. For such connections have long been known to Senator Mitch McConnell who as far back as 1996 stated the following concerning ICNA:
"One of the groups with Hamas ties is the Dallas-based Islamic Association for Palestine in North America, which, in turn, apparently is allied with the Islamic Circle of North America [ICNA] in New York."
Ironically enough, this terror-connected group is allotted freedoms in the state of Kentucky that law abiding Christians of the Blue Grass can only exercise when successfully litigated before Kentucky courts.
In March of 2006, the local Lexington ICNA chapter mysteriously evaded litigation by the self-professed guardians of the separation of church and state "doctrine" (the ACLU), when ICNA sponsored "bus advertisements of the prophet Mohammad" which were "on display in all 50 LEXTRAN ([government]-funded transport system) buses."
According to the ICNA-KY website, Mohammad Siddiqui, President of ICNA's north central region said the following concerning the ad campaign:
"This is a good form of outreach...and an opportunity to reach out to hundreds of bus riders in the Blue Grass to share with them the qualities of prophet Mohammad."
Now allow us to rightly absorb this. The American government according to the ACLU, cannot publicly display any outward "sign" or "symbol" that would, in some way or other, "promote" the Christian religion. For such action would, in turn, violate the American constitution - a document written by Christians.
However, a Radical Muslim group that has been linked to terrorist organizations intent on overthrowing the government created by that very constitution, can display advertisements, on government-funded transport, for the purpose of promoting the religious leader by whom these terror organizations are inspired?
Excuse me, while I compose myself.
Okay...I think...I think, okay, yes...I'm composed. Back to the matter at hand:
According to the New York Daily News, ICNA "has been probed by FBI counter-terrorism agents for terror ties."
On September 27 1997, ICNA held a conference at a fundamentalist madrassa (Islamic religious school), which according to Discover, "served as a recruitment center for Taliban fighters."
In 2003, ICNA was one of the 25 American Muslim organizations listed by Senators Grassley and Baucus as "organizations that finance terrorism and perpetuate violence."
Terrorism expert, Steven Emerson, claims that "ICNA has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood."
Emerson has also written the following concerning ICNA:
"ICNA openly supports militant Islamic fundamentalist organizations."
"Praises terror attacks."
"Issues incendiary attacks on Western values and policies."
"Supports the imposition of Sharia [Islamic law]."
We could go on and on fellow Catholics, but the bottom line is that suspect Wahhabi groups such as ICNA and CAIR, who appear to be key components of the existing mosque-terror connection, have come to roost in Lexington Kentucky. And while it must be noted that not all American mosques ascribe to the radical Wahhabi ideology espoused by these groups, the simple truth is that they could be coming to a mosque near you!
A chilling prospect indeed!
God bless fellow Catholics.
Let us pray to Our Lady for the conversion of hearts!
