Fadlallah, who green-lighted the 1983 barracks bombing that murdered 241 Americans, is dead. CNN's Octavia Nasr, who is in mourning as are the people in these mosques, unwittingly reveals, in the "clarification" of her infamous tweet, why anyone who mourns this man ought to be watched very closely by law enforcement:
...The interview went 45 minutes, during which I asked him about Hezbollah's agenda for an Islamic state in Lebanon. He bluntly told me that was his group's dream but there would be room for other religions....
As dhimmis, of course.
It is no secret that Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah hated with a vengeance the United States government and Israel. He regularly praised the terror attacks that killed Israeli citizens. And as recently as 2008, he said the numbers of Jews killed in the Holocaust were wildly inflated. [...]
Fadlallah himself was designated a terrorist by the U.S. Treasury Department.
And yet he is being mourned in three Detroit-area mosques that we are forced on pain of charges of "Islamophobia" and "bigotry" to regard as "moderate."
Tiny Minority of Extremists Update: "3 Detroit-area mosques hold services to mourn loss of revered Islamic cleric from Lebanon," from The Associated Press (Canadian Press), July 6:
DETROIT -- Three suburban Detroit Muslim worship centres plan to hold a total of six services to mourn the loss of one of Shiite Islam's highest authorities.
Services will be held nightly from Tuesday through Sunday for the Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah. The 75-year-old cleric died Sunday in Lebanon after a long illness and was buried Tuesday.
The Detroit-area services will rotate among the Islamic Institute of Knowledge in Dearborn, Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights and Islamic Center of America in Dearborn.
Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi of the Islamic House of Wisdom says it's important to include several mosques because Fadlallah preached unity among people....
Among Muslims only, that is.
