In the burgeoning world of Islam in America, Imam Siraj Wahhaj is a star. In 1991, he was the first Muslim ever to lead a prayer before the start of a session of the House of Representatives. Four years ago, then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright hosted him and other Muslim notables at a State Department banquet of lamb, lentils and saffron rice to break the Ramadan fast. One of the country's most popular Muslim preachers, he travels widely, extolling the Quran to large crowds at immigrant Islamic centers, conventions and universities.

Islam is like a poisonous snake
In that the body may be considered 'moderate' only in that its
the head contains fangs with venom and directs the 'whole' snake...
The body supports and moves the head..but its the head that determines direction and the next victim..
The moderates are always directed to refer back to 'the source' Mecca and Medina and the 'true path'...no matter what fringe ideas pop up ...it is the immams and mullahs who have studied the true Koran in Arabic in the place where Mohammed first had his 'visions' and made his first conquests..

Frightening. They share very little with American Ideals outside of self-sufficiency. Their ultimate goal is to turn the US into a third world Islamic state. However, these blacks kid themselves if they believe once this happens they would enjoy the same status as an Arab. They're nothing more than pawns.

INTREP - ISLAM
What is so amusing/depressing about all of this hoopla is that Islamic Arabs having been trading and using black Africans for slaves for centuries and still are doing so. Are African Americans slow learners?

A "fifth column" cancer.
Perhaps the most curious thing about the good Imam's travelog is the absence of any reference to the actual driving force behind the exponential growth of the "Muslim experience" in America -- our nation's correctional system....
