As a dedicated American Muslim activist, I have devoted my life to advocating for reforms against political Islam the root cause of Islamist terrorism. To that end, I debated Bilal Kaleem, executive director of the Muslim American Society of Boston (MAS) at an April Ford Hall Forum in Boston. I focused on the threat of Islamism (political Islam and shariah) to the west, human rights, and freedom. When confronted, Mr. Kaleem feigned ignorance and dismissed the realities of political Islam staying lockstep with his employers. And why wouldnt he when a coalition of local faith and political leaders continue to blindly give him and his Islamist associates an ideological pass?
Charles Jacobs of Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) recently criticized many state political and faith leaders for their blind embrace of Islamists at the MAS and the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC). Rabbi Eric Gurvis of Newton, along with 70 other rabbis, dismissed the criticism as destructive. This narrative is all too familiar. Any pointed critique of staunch Islamists is inappropriately labeled anti-Muslim or fear-mongering. Muslim victimhood is a political tool for partisan faith leaders and politicians. Never mind the fact that many devout Muslims raise the same critique against Islamist.
From the inside, many if not most of our mosques in American Islam are suffering deeply from the unopposed hegemony of Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood and toxic foreign petrodollar interests. For exposing this tough love, reformists often pay a heavy price. This is not fear-mongering. It is reality.
Governor Deval Patrick, Rabbi Gurvis, and other leaders should not elevate Islamists like Imam Abdullah Faaruuq and his team. By doing so, they make reformists irrelevant and kill any hope for a battle of ideas.

He was also a recent guest on Dennis Miller's radio show.
There are no good Muslims.
what an intelligent statement......../S
This is the same Dr. Jasser who had offered to pay the legal fees of the passengers who complained about the imams who started “praying” disruptively on a plane at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport. Some engineers that I work with who are Muslims said that the “flying imams” were not praying, they were “showboating”.
That said, while Dr. Jasser and the above mentioned engineers are good people, they need to see what their religion really is, and decide for themselves whether or not they really want to continue with it.
Didn’t read past “Muslim activist,” did you?
I repeat; there are no good Muslims.
They're all filthy animals.
and you’re an idiot
Charles Jacobs is right and deserves applause. So many religious leaders in New England and elsewhere so much prefer the dream that the Islamists among them are different from what they actually are and what they are actually promoting that these clergy are aiding and abetting the advancement of their own enemy. Really smart /sarc.

Yet, Christ opened his arms to you... His life... What is it that blinds you ?
