Dawud Walid, the Quran and Jews

Pages: 1 2

Originally published by the Investigative Project on Terrorism

The Council of American Islamic Relations [CAIR] may tout itself as an “organization that challenges stereotypes of Islam and Muslims,” and as group that was formed “to challenge anti-Muslim discrimination nationwide.” But in fighting the good fight against hate, at least one of its regional leaders demonizes Jews as the source of Muslims’ problems.

“Who are those who incurred the wrath of Allah?” CAIR-Michigan Executive Director Dawud Walid asked in a May 25 sermon at the Islamic Organization of North America mosque in Warren, Mich. “They are the Jews, they are the Jews,” he answered himself in Arabic.

Aside from being one of CAIR’s most visible spokesmen, Walid appears frequently in the media and has traveled abroad at least twice on trips paid by the State Department. During a 2010 trip to Mali, for example, he criticized treatment of Muslim Americans after 9/11, saying they “have been subjected to increased discrimination from racial and religious profiling by law enforcement.” And he cast the 2009 shooting death of a Detroit imam as unjust, even though the imam refused orders to lay down his weapon and surrender, and then opened fire first after a police dog was sent in to subdue him.

If it isn’t the Jews incurring Allah’s wrath by disobeying him, the hands of the pro-Israel lobby are undermining American Muslims and Palestinians alike, Walid claimed in his sermon.

“One of the greatest social ills facing American today is Islamophobia, and anti-Muslim bigotry. And if you trace the organizations and the main advocates and activists in Islamophobia in America, you will see that all those organizations are pro-Israeli occupation organizations and activists,” Walid said. “You will see every single last one. Do you know why? Because one of the leading Islamophobes by the name of Daniel Pipes, said the political empowerment of American Muslims is a direct threat to Israel.”

The “pro-Israeli occupation lobby that is connected to the Islamophobia network” is the reason why America experiences “more problems, more Islamophobia, more hate crimes, more desecration of mosques, more anti-Muslim activity” than other countries in North and South America, Walid said.

This Zionist lobby is also the biggest obstacle to Muslims “liberating” Palestine, Jerusalem, and the al-Aqsa Mosque, the heat of the Israel-Palestinian conflict, he said.

Walid isn’t alone blaming Jews for Palestinian problems or Islamophobia. Conspiracies about a Jewish or Zionist lobby controlling American foreign policy, especially towards a future Palestinian state, are frequently repeated throughout Arabic and Islamist media. Their champions include HamasIranian news outlets, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

For example, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh blasted the United States as an “enemy of Islam” in 2006 in part because it is “influenced by the Zionist lobby.”

Those same groups also argue that Jews are the main culprits behind America’s supposed trend toward anti-Muslim hate, and link the ideas together.

“So this is why you see the Islamophobia network trying to gin up negative information about Muslims and Islam. This is a direct connection to the occupation of Palestine. It is a direct connection. And [it is] because the strongest Israeli lobby in the world is in America, because America is the sole patron of Israel,” Walid said.

He goes on to pray for the brothers in Syria, Yemen, Palestine, and Mali, all places with active Islamist insurgencies, as well as “the Mujahideen in your way everywhere.”

As mentioned, the rhetoric is just the latest example of extremism from one of CAIR’s highest profile directors. Yet, in addition to government-financed trips abroad, Walid routinely meets with key government decision makers. In October, he met with Detroit U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade seeking her help monitoring a local zoning issue.

    They scream "Islamaphobia" and the world bows down to them and their wishes, rushing to apologize. But if you examine the numbers, there are far more hate crimes against Jews than against Muslims, despite the huge disparity in size of population. Yet if we talk about anti-Semitism, we're accused of trying to "silence our critics".

    Do I detect just a hint of double standards?

  • StephenD

    "And [it is] because the strongest Israeli lobby in the world is in America, because America is the sole patron of Israel,” Walid said.

    Yeah, so don’t forget it! Tell the other sand monkeys we will stand with Israel because they are the only Civilized People in the entire Mid-East.

    You want the world to think you offer a better way of life and yet you would place women in cloth coffins, hang your homosexual sons and behead your brother who has chosen to leave the “Religion of Peace.” You expect people to ignore this because you get government assistance to spew this rhetoric and are a smooth talker. But most of the balance of the world aren’t like those living in isolation where this cult first appeared. Most can think for themselves and see the evidence of this totalitarian system that would enslave them…and we ain’t buying it.

    Other than the suicide belt for the sake of Allah what have Muslims contributed to society, NADA.
    Obvioulsy Muslims are jealous of the success by Jews.

  • RiverFredIsAnIdiot

    RiverFred, you are by far the dumbest person I have run across. Did you go to school? Muslims made significant strides in mathematics, astronomy, physics, and other countless subjects you likely did not study.

    • Northanhymbre Heathen

      I was under the impression that pre-Islamic Arabs were avid stargazers etc anyway – my suspicion is that Islam simply stifled free philosophical debate and destroyed all the knowledge that had been gathered by its religious predecessors in the Arabic world (or stole their knowledge and touted it as their own after they'd enslaved or beheaded them!) I'm neither Jewish nor Christian but I do recall a passage in the Bible somewhere that says "you will know them by what they do", and the Islamic world just doesn't really strike me as a hotbed of intellectual enquiry and scientific development when one observes "what they do". The Jews Dawid Walid hates so much have far, far surpassed Muslims in the sciences and many other subjects.

      • wctaqiyya

        Good points. Arab knowledge of astronomy was used primarily for time keeping. They borrowed most of that knowledge from the Greeks and others or claimed the credit of work done by non-Muslims under their control. Oh, they were also big on astrology. You know, magic, flying carpets, genies and fortune telling. Most of the popular claims about Arab scientific advances are exaggerated.

    • Mina

      Like Muhammad/allah telling us the Earth is flat and the Sun sets in a muddy pool? Muslims brought nothing to anyone but misery. They invaded the most advanced civilisations on Earth, and then stole their work and called it Islamic.

    • Galveston

      and don't forget their prize invention – the suicide vest!

    • ziontruth

      "Muslims made significant strides in mathematics, astronomy, physics,…"

      Converts to Islam made those significant strides. Just a few generations afterward, as we can see to this day, that pool of genius dried up in a hot wind blast of Islamic anti-innovationism and cousin marriage.

      What it does tell you that Hindu contributors to science can be found just as much in modern times as in ancient ones, while the "Muslim" contributors to science are a past-tense affair only?

    • Myron

      That was around 1000 yrs ago dude. I think RiverFred was asking more “what have you done lately” – with lately of course meaning sometime in the last millenium.

    • Flanstein

      Riverdred,

      Islam has contributed to humanity nothing but hatred, evil and oppression for the last thousand years.

  • Marty

    walid is a liar and fraud busy implementing tawiyya and doing even that badly. The koran is the founding document of a genocidal death cult that insists on destroying any civilization that is unfortunate to come into contact with it. When mohamad first appeared in mecca, the place was a relatively tolerant and industrious region. He and his delusional followers wrecked the place and turned most of arabia into a cemetary for non-muslims. muslims have been set on conquering the world ever since in order to eliminate any culture that preceded or is competitive with theirs. That means everything unislamic must be subdued and leveled. muslims will plunge the world into a new and prolonged dark age if they are allowed to continue to immigrate to the West and live off the state dole while they breed dysfunctional families with their cousins and wallow in self-pity. Work is beneath them; that is why dhimmis are around.

  • Hoekom Jy My Haat

    Is it "Islamophobia" when they REALLY ARE trying to kill you?

    • stern

      Spoken like a ware Suid Afrikaner.

      • ziontruth

        Marxist political AIDS in its bare form: "RAAACIST!" = "Lay down all your defenses and let the barbarian hordes take you and yours without firing a shot."

        In a sane world, being a Marxist would be grounds for a charge of high treason.

      • ziontruth

        On second thought… Is this the same "stern" that posts on the good side, and the expression "a ware Suid Afrikaner" is not intended to smear Hoekom as being equal to the Afrikaners of pre-1994 South Africa? If so, then I apologize.

        • stern

          Hey relax. I was making an "in" joke about the moniker! Did not intend anything more than that, and was certainly not disagreeing with the post.

          • Stern

            On second thought. I apologize too. My original reply was not well thought out. Sorry

          • ziontruth

            No problem! I often suffer from KJS* when posting here.

    ~ Israel first became a nation in 1312 B.C, two thousand years before the rise of Islam!

    "The land of Israel belongs to God, and He has decided to give it to the Jewish nation,
    in accordance with the covenant sealed on Mount Sinai, a covenant that no other nation
    was willing to undertake. After a long exile, we've returned home. We bear no malice toward anyone
    and seek no harm to anyone. But we will not surrender any portion of our land to foreign powers,
    and if foreigners rise up against us to destroy us, we will fight against them and,
    with God's help, we will destroy them."
    ~ Martin Wasserman

    Oh, and Issslam's profaart (whose name is cause for deleted & cen$ored posts) – Is STILL DEAD!

  • Indioviejo

    Muslim bigotry and racism is deflected by their cry of Islamophobia. They have played the victimhood card for the longest time until they take over, then they will kick our collective butts into the dirt. This is the point Walid is trying to cover up. But Muslim hatred for Jews and Christians cannot be covered up for long, it just bursts out of them.

  • Ralph Vaughan

    If CAIR really wants to change civilized society's perception of Muslims, perhaps they should tell Muslims to stop killing people.

    From the slavery of Egypt the Children of Israel were made free and Independent, and thus each man became as it were a King, if only he had obeyed Allah and followed the lead of Moses. This is the teaching of the Qur-an S.5A. 19-23.
    Remember Moses said To his people (Israelites) : "Oh my People! Call in remembrance the favour of Allah (GOD) unto you, when He Produced prophets among you, Made you Kings, and gave You what He had not given To any other among the peoples.
    Oh my people! enter The Holy Land which Allah (GOD) hath assigned unto you, and turn not back Ignominiously, for then Will ye be overthrown, To your Ruin."

    This is the Demise of all Middle eastern non Christian faiths this is where they all get off on why cant we have the blessings???? and hence Mohammad recognizes Christ as a prophet but not the Anointed one this was Mohammed down fall he died thinking he was a greater man the Christ! so all the Islamic and Palestine faiths fell and were crushed buy the rising of the Jewish, Roman Catholic and Christian faiths….
