Hamas-linked CAIR’s Brave Ahmed Rehab says Americans need to “move on” from 9/11


He’d like you to forget a lot of things.

The current trend to downplay 9/11 or turn the anniversary into something different (like a “day of service”) seems to go hand in hand with a desire to avoid addressing the ideological motivation for the attacks. To address that too forthrightly could be “intolerant,” just as CNN is now sowing the fear of “intolerance” by offering parents advice for talking to their children about 9/11 “without sowing fear or intolerance.”

And so Brave Ahmed also insists we need to stop fixating on those guys “who happened to be Muslim.” Just like the 7/7 attacks in Britain, 3/11 in Spain, numerous attacks in India including the 2008 Mumbai massacre, the Bali bombings, Fort Hood, the Beslan massacre, and so on into the thousands of jihadist attacks with smaller casualty counts that add up nonetheless, and all of the failed attacks attempted in the U.S. in the past decade, including Springfield, Illinois, Dallas, Portland, Baltimore, Lubbock, Texas (and possibly Dallas again), and Fort Hood, again.

Funny how that keeps happening. “Islamic-American Group: Link Between 9/11, Muslim Religion Must Stop,” from CBS Chicago, September 8:

CHICAGO (CBS) “” The head of a local Islamic-American organization says that after this year, except for remembering its victims, it’s time for America to move on from the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, Ahmet Rehab of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says many people still are under the false impression that Islam is a radical religion, and that its believers want to change the U.S. into an Islamic state.

Shamim A. Siddiqi’s Methodology of Dawa describes the tactic: “A short account of the Prophet’s (S) life is presented, without the revolutionary aspect. When Islam is acceptable to the new entrants in this concocted or abbreviated form, the ceremony of Shahadah [the profession of Islamic faith] is performed with great reverence. A non-Muslim thus becomes a Muslim, obedient to Allah (SWT) alone. The revolutionary aspect of Islam is rarely brought before the new converts….”

Rehab says the United States needs to move on from that.

“It was always a gang of criminals, called al-Qaeda, who happened to be Muslim, who are trying to justify their acts through faith and through religion,” Rehab said.

Rehab says the American people should not allow politicians, right-wingers and TV networks make them fear fellow Americans who are Muslim.

He says the way to defeat fear is through hope, and the way to defeat terrorism is through American values and principles.

    I just realized that the 17,715 jihad attacks carried out since 9/11 were all carried out by …..ehm, Muslims. Gosh, what a coincidence! Absolutely no jihad attacks were carried out by adherents of any other Faith.

    Makes you wonder, eh? :))

    Sorry, Rehab. The green powder ain’t workin’.

  3. says

    Gimme a break – the mahoundians haven’t even moved on from the CRUSADES! How about “moving on” from the 1967 war with Israel?

  4. says

    As you say, Ahmed’s spin on this is no different to that of the entire main stream media. Indeed, if aliens came down to earth this week and watched the various 9/11 documentaries that have been showing in the UK (and I believe also in the US), then they would believe that it was some kind of a terrible natural disaster in which the primary victims were Muslims.

    More on this here:


  5. says

    I’m never moving on about 9/11 until the reason for it is finally understood by the vast majority in the West. And that reason is Islam. Not Islam hijacked by extremists. Not Islam misunderstood. Not Islam perverted. Just Islam.

    But for Islam 9/11 would not have happened. Islam is the “but for” reason for that terrible day. After all, Mohammed himself, according to the Bukhari hadith, said that he had been made victorious through terror.

  6. says

    How dare they? Muslims do not move on about anything, yet they say this to us….constantly adding insult to injury.
    They are the biggest hypocrites the world has ever known!

    They are the epitome a bully….how the bully, when confronted with their acts, plays the victim and tells the actual victim to move on, along with the authority figures telling the victim to move on as well. Nothing but bullies. Plain and simple. Islam is the world’s bully, and the authorities treat them as such, blaming the victim, or expect the victim to make things ok, as they know the bully will not. Putting the responsibility on the victim…this needs to end, in schools, in gov’t’s, and in the global arena.

    Sheesh, this rehab dummy should explain why osama chose the date for the 911 attacks as revenge for the defeat his coreligionists were handed at the Gates of Vienna September 11 1683 (which obviously osama did NOT GET OVER IT (over 400! not 10! years ago) what a hypocritical idiot!

    Sorry for being off-topic here, but there was a potentially significant radio interview yesterday morning in the UK which allowed Tommy Robinson of the English Defence League to put across his position without being interrupted. Interestingly, the Today Programme interviewer – John Humphrys – almost seemed to indicate in his closing remarks that the penny had finally dropped for him regarding the reality of Islamisation. If so, this could be significant, as being one of the Today Programme’s leading political journalists, he carries considerable sway when it comes to forming public opinion. Read the key parts of the interview here: http://durotrigan.blogspot.com/2011/09/john-humphreys-on-luton-islam-and-edl.html

  10. says

    The head of a local Islamic-American organization says that after this year, except for remembering its victims, it’s time for America to move on from the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    **F*ck you**, Ahmed Rehab. Who gives you the right to tell Americans that we are supposed to “move on”? *WHAT gall*.

    This would be bad enough if he were just some tone-deaf idiot who is ‘tired of hearing about 9/11′”but *he is not*. He is a representative of the *very ideology who attacked us in the first place*.

    And I don’t just mean that he is Muslim”CAIR is backed by the Jihad terrorists of *Hamas*.


    And so Brave Ahmed also insists we need to stop fixating on those guys “who happened to be Muslim.” Just like the 7/7 attacks in Britain, 3/11 in Spain, numerous attacks in India including the 2008 Mumbai massacre, the Bali bombings, Fort Hood, the Beslan massacre, and so on into the thousands of jihadist attacks with smaller casualty counts that add up nonetheless, and all of the failed attacks attempted in the U.S. in the past decade, including Springfield, Illinois, Dallas, Portland, Baltimore, Lubbock, Texas (and possibly Dallas again), and Fort Hood, again.

    *Exactly*. Perhaps we *might* be ready to “move on” if 9/11″no matter how horrifying”had been a “one off” If there had been no further terrorist attacks, we would indeed have likely “moved on”.

    But there have been Jihad attacks in Europe, and India, and Russia, and Israel, and the Fort Hood massacre here, and umpteen *planned* attacks. How many more Americans would lie dead in New York City, and Killeen, Texas, and Portland, Oregon, and in the skies over Detroit if not for the hard work and quick wits of Kaffirs”and sometimes the ineptitude of Jihadists?

    So *f*ck you*, Ahmed Rehab.


    We will NEVER SUBMIT.

  11. says

    Ahmet Rehab wants American’s to forget it was the Muslim Brotherhood who stated their goal was to turn the US into an Islamic state from within. During the Holy Land Foundation trial, evidence was brought to light about Muslim Brotherhood’s true goals in the US.

    CAIR, the group who Ahmet shills for is an unindicted co-cospirator in the HLF trial. Evidence against CAIR was also brought to light. Though they were not convicted in court, the evidence cause the FBI to drop its association with CAIR due to the ties to terrorist groups.

    And yet this is still not even touching upon Al Queda, the “radical” muslim group.

    Ahmet should just shut the fuck up!

  12. says

    “Islamic-American Group: Link Between 9/11, Muslim Religion Must Stop,”

    In fact, for me, “Muslim Religion Must Stop” would be a preferable title.

  13. says

    As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, Ahmet Rehab of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says many people still are under the false impression that Islam is a radical religion, and that its believers want to change the U.S. into an Islamic state.

    Where did we ever get *that* crazy idea? Perhaps the unending string of planned Jihad terror attacks, now coupled with the push for Shari’ah law?

    More meretricious crap:

    “It was always a gang of criminals, called al-Qaeda, who happened to be Muslim, who are trying to justify their acts through faith and through religion,” Rehab said.

    So”the Jihad terrorists of 9/11 had no goals whatsoever? They just thought driving planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the Capital dome sounded fun, and”as an afterthought”decided they should come up with some plausible excuse for it all? That they just as easily might have picked Puerto Rican independence, Animal Liberation, or Ruby Ridge as a cause?

    *What crap*.

    Yet more:

    He says the way to defeat fear is through hope, and the way to defeat terrorism is through American values and principles.

    Again, *what gall*. The only use Ahmed Rehab and his fellow CAIR members have for “American values and principles” is to use them for stealth Jihad and to inspire an unearned sense of guilt in good-hearted but credulous Kaffirs.

  14. says

    Its time to move Ahmed Rehab on – to somewhere more fitting like Somalia or Pakistan. And Muslims wonder why Islam is so hated, it is because of sheer barbarity and arrogant attitudes like that towards infidels. Now it would have been different if passenger airliners were crashed into Mecca and Medina instead at the height of the Hajj.

  15. says

    Just a gang of criminals with no connection to real Islam, beyond the issue of what Islam teaches in the Qur’an and Sunnah, is what Muslims do–
    to repeat a post on another thread:

    Al Qaeda was financed by the Saudi Arabia government and the UAE. Islamic jihadists are not simply independent actors out there, they are proxies for these regimes. They are the fingers of a hand, as Daniel Greenfield once phrased it. The hand being Islam itself. The jihad is global and it’s goals are synonymous with the supremacism of the OIC, the “voice” of the Islamic world, which condemns “terrorism” but has never found a jihadist cause it doesn’t consider “legitimate”. Al Qaeda was in 60 countries at the time of 9/11.

    Let’s not forget those who gave material support for this terrorist network that made war on America. The International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO)is an arm of the Saudi government. It funded the Taliban ($60 million). It funded perpetrators of the 1993 WTC bombing. It laundered money for al-Qaeda. Its parent company was the Muslim World League, an arm of the Saudi government, which employed members of al-Qaeda. Prince Turki, head of the Saudi secret services, funded the IIRO through Zakat payments in Saudi Arabia. Prince Sultan donated $2 million to the IIRO. Another branch of the MWL was Rabita Trust, assets frozen by the US as a terrorist entity. Wa’al Jalaiden of al Qaeda was secretary general of Rabita Trust and of the MWL office in Peshawar. The SAAR Network, the hundred plus front groups supporting al-Qaeda headquartered in Herndon, VA was financed primarily by the al Rajhi family and Al Rajhi Bank, a network including the MWL, IIRO, WAMY and Al Haramain Foundation (assets frozen as a terror entity), whose chairman was closely linked to al-Qaeda’s Wadith el-Hage, convicted in the 1998 embassy bombings in Africa.

    Yes, al-Qaeda had nothing to do with Islam or the Islamic world: DMI (House of Islamic Money) CEO Saudi Prince al-Faisal al-Saud, whose subsidiaries funding al-Qaeda included al Shamal Islamic Bank, Faisal Islamic Bank, Tadamon Islamic Bank, Islamic Investment Bank of the Gulf.
    Faisal Islamic Bank, a founder of al-Shamal Bank, was implicated in the 1998 embassy bombings as a holding bank for al-Qaeda operatives. Al Barakaat Exchange LLC based in Dubai was accused of conspiracy and a principal source for bin laden. Bin Laden himself invested $50 million in Al Shamal Islamic Bank in Sudan, whose chairman was Adel Batterjee of Benevolence International Foundation, an al-Qaeda front, also chairman of WAMY (World Association of Muslim Youth). Al Qaeda operatives had accounts in Al Shamal Bank, under their real names. National Commercial Bank in Jeddah, SA funneled over $74 million over ten years by its Zakat Committee to the IIRO, headed by bin Laden’s brother in law, $3 million were transferred to the Blessed Relief Foundation, an al-Qaeda charity headed by Khalid Mahfouz, whose sister married bin Laden. (Mahfouz was COO of the BCCI criminal bank which not only laundered drug money but funded terrorism, including Abu Nidal’s group). You get the rotten picture.

    Over 17,000 terrorist attacks in the name of Islam later, the Muslim world’s outrage continues to be aimed at those who examine or criticize Islam, not those who perpetuate violence, hatred, and atrocities in the name of their religion. The almost complete lack of compassion or sorrow for the victims of these attacks is most telling. Sorrow, like friendship, is reserved for Muslims only.

  16. says

    What would we do without your observation, Mr. Rehab? When we want advice, we sure know where to go.

    Oh my, I do hope Mr. Rehab is reading these wonderfully enlightening comments! Perhaps CAIR will indeed benefit from the well documented list being compiled above regarding the issues they themselves “should move on from”.

    The attack on the United States of America by the Adherents of Submission is an act of war. We are at war. It looks to me like CAIR recruited a male model to pitch an ad.

    The only question I would like to ask is, where is your burka of Submission Mr. Rehab? You are much too public; how did the fundamentalist Brotherhoods condone this flagrant display of flesh? You should be beaten right there in your entertainment center living room. You have become much too Westernized.

  17. says

    LOL, imagine, Re-hab the A-rab thinking he knows what’s best for Americans..The arrogance of muslims cannot be surpassed, even when they make fools of themselves as in the charming picture..

    They kill 3,000 of our innocents on our soil and they immigrate to colonize us on a daily basis and they infiltrate all levels of government and law enforcement and they repeatedly tell us they are here to conquer us and then this muslim, Rehab from CAIR has the nerve to try and tell us when & how to process the terrorist event that murdered almost 3,000 Americans in cold blood. That’s the height of arrogance, especially from a people known for their ultra-sensitive feelings and hair- trigger reactions bordering on hysteria..

    We will NEVER FORGET! We will always tell the truth, “muslims did it”. And we will make sure our children know the truth so they can pass the facts down to their own children. We will make sure they know who has declared war on us. We will make sure they know their enemy. We will NEVER forget!

    Those bloodlust weasels at CAIR are angry because of the 26’000 unbelievers that managed to flee from the fear of a 2nd plane coming , this 2nd plane did arrive but Allah lost his victory to slaughter 30’000+ filthy non-muslim civilains to bring about Peace on Earth.

    I’d like to know exactly how many non-muslims have to be murdered for allah’s cause for CAIR to get it though their dense skull that the 5’500’000’000 non-muslims are fed-up with the Death-Cult called ‘Islam’ and that we no longer buy the tripe that islam=peace . Nor will we continue to be tolerant about the 17’000+ terrorism acts by Muslims since 9/11/01 are by a few Misunderstanders of the peaceful islam and quranic teachings.

    Lets see how TOLERANT muslims would be if a unbeliver flew a 747 into Kaaba during Haaj to slughter thousands of muslims at once……would the Saudi’s allow to build a Victory Church, or Victory Synagogue to teach tolerance that not all non-muslims are Terrorists.

    Don’t hold your breath on that one….the MoeToons showed us how 150 infidels got killed over a really stupid reason only understood by those followers of a Misogynistic/Homophobic/Pedophile/Orphan/mass-Murderer .

    Time for a classic from the Jihadwatch archives, I think.

    From four years ago, but still just as powerful and relevant today.

    And not only for Americans. ‘John Doe’ speaks for many, many other countries. Perhaps this speech, originally written by Michelle Malkin, could be refashioned in certain ways to suit certain local conditions, and in some cases translated (Italian, French, German, and other languages) and circulated as widely as possible.


    ‘I am John Doe

    ‘A magisterial column by Michelle Malkin (with video here):
    Dear Muslim Terrorist [sic: Jihad terror – dda] Plotter/Planner/Funder/Enabler/Apologist,
    You do not know me. But I am on the lookout for you. You are my enemy. And I am yours.
    I am John Doe.
    I am traveling on your plane. I am riding on your train. I am at your bus stop. I am on your street. I am in your subway car. I am on your lift.
    I am your neighbor. I am your customer. I am your classmate. I am your boss.
    I am John Doe.
    I will never forget the example of the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 who refused to sit back on 9/11 and let themselves be murdered in the name of Islam without a fight.
    I will never forget the passengers and crew members who tackled al Qaeda shoe-bomber Richard Reid on American Airlines Flight 63 before he had a chance to blow up the plane over the Atlantic Ocean.
    I will never forget the alertness of actor James Woods, who notified a stewardess that several Arab men sitting in his first-class cabin on an August 2001 flight were behaving strangely. The men turned out to be 9/11 hijackers on a test run.
    I will act when homeland security officials ask me to “report suspicious activity.”
    I will embrace my local police department’s admonition: “If you see something, say something.”
    I am John Doe.
    I will protest your Jew-hating, America-bashing [all-nonMuslim-bashing – dda] “scholars.”
    I will petition against your hate-mongering mosque leaders.
    I will raise my voice against your subjugation of women and religious minorities.
    I will challenge your attempts to indoctrinate my children in our schools.
    I will combat your violent propaganda on the Internet.
    I am John Doe.
    I will support law enforcement initiatives to spy on your operatives, cut off your funding and disrupt your murderous conspiracies.
    I will oppose all attempts to undermine our borders and immigration laws.
    I will resist the imposition of sharia principles and sharia law in my taxi cab, my restaurant, my community pool, the halls of Congress [or in Parliament – dda], our national monuments, the radio and television airwaves, and all public spaces.
    I will not be censored in the name of tolerance.
    I will not be cowed by your Beltway [insert appropriate term here, all non-American ‘John Does’ – dda] lobbying groups in moderates’ clothing.
    I will not cringe when you shriek about “profiling” or “Islamophobia.”
    I will put my family’s safety above sensitivity. I will put my country above multiculturalism.
    I will not submit to your will. I WILL NOT SURRENDER. I will not be intimidated.

    Americans will NEVER FORGET, AND THEIR ENEMIES WILL NOT BE FORGIVEN FOR THAT COWARDLY ATTACK ON 9/11/2001. A curse on him and their entire generation of vipers. If anyone should “move on” it should be the world of Islam. And that move should be into the 21st Century and ordinary civilization, and out of the barbaric culture of Mohammed. These imbecils call America the “Great Satan”, but if they weren’t so filled with hate, they would look at them own selves and see the evil in their lives. I am NOT saying that America is guiltless, for there have been grave mistakes carried out in the name of freedom on our side also, but look at who engineered the attacks of 911, and who guided the planes into the Twin Towers. Look who planted the IED’s in Iraq and in Afghanistan. Look who carried out the attack on the USS Cole, the bombing of the hotel in Beruit, and multiplied hundreds of attacks all across the world; it was and yet is hate filled Muslims. So with that in mind, where is the center of violence in today’s world? It finds itself rooted in Islam. I am not discounting the other enemies of America, such as Russia, Red China, North Korea, Iran and Venezuala, but if one cares to educate themselves, they will soon find that Islam is at the heart of all these countries. Islam is involved with either being armed by the other nations, or they are arming other nations with the weapons which they have gotten from either Russia, China, or North Korea. But regardless, it is Islam and their hate which the powers of this world is using to consumate their will on the USA. You might say “are the Muslims victims?” Not AT ALL. But they are being pushed along by our European and Asian “allies”. I will go out on a limb and will say this. The United States have home grown enemies right here, and a good number of them have been elected to both the houses of our government, some of which have been known to pander favors with foreign entities for profit, and some are to this day currying the favors of cetain Islamic individuals from the Middle East. There are a number of wrong with this, all of which seeks to undermine the security of our nation, as it is hidden agreements between agents of two nations beyond the scope and knowledge of the people, and such things as these may be construed as acts of treason. However the bottom line is that these “trusted” elected officials have been making profit with the lives and liberties of the people of this nation, and this, dear readers, MUST come to a halt. It is up to us with the help of Almighty God, to do what it takes to bring our world back from the abyss in which it is about to plunge.

  23. says

    We will never move on, we will never forget, we will never endorse terroristic behavier. Radical Islam is digging a very deep and wide hole.

    Little by little the free world will unit against the Muslim agressors. This time it will be a united effort not a crusade by just a few. The free world has given Islam every oppertunity to comply with civil behavier.

    Soon the complacency will end, and the real defensive/offensive of the free world will begin. And radical Islam will end forever.

    Your apparent dominance “Brave Ahmed Rehab” it will not survive the free worlds final response to your terroristic behavier.

    Ahmed is an idiot, but I really only have one question. Where did that disgusting photo come from??!! I thought muslims, and not just muslim women but men too, were supposed to dress “modestly” (?) It makes me feel sick just looking at it. Put some clothes on ahmed!!!

  25. says

    They ought to move on from Mein Qur’ampf, especially 33:21, 9:5, 9:29, 33:59, 5:32-33 and 4:34, at least; from their rejection of scientific inquiry, skeptical thinking and the arts; from their insh’allah fatalism, from their misogyny, from their supremacism, from their childish readiness to explode (with or without the help of dynamite suppositories) over the least important things and from their hydrophobic hatred of all things non-mahoundian.

    After that, perhaps the infidel world could consider moving on from 9/11… Until the mahoundian to-move-on-from list is still full of things to do, there is absolutely no reason for any infidel to “move on” from that.

  26. says

    Good points CGW, I hadn’t thought of that. I would also like to reemphasize: The Crusades were a defensive action against Muslim aggression, the rape of nuns and others, murder, robbery, slavery, destruction of Christian holy sights. Muslims may complain about it but they brought the Crusades on themselves.

  27. says

    Remember, it’s not gay if the musloid is using rape jihad on a kaffir male.

    It’s also not gay if the musloid is the top. As per mo’s manifesto of racism and hatred it’s the bottom that’s the gay and should be thrown off of a cliff.

    But you forget, he’s a musloid so if he’s ever caught he will lie, lie, lie, deny and claim that he’s a victim of islamophobic rape.

    So true, Sean. Here’s a typical bit of repellently saccharine Taqiyya-soaked victimhood, this time from Care2. Try not to gag:

    “9/11 Ten Years Later: Care2 Members Share Their Memories”

    Gerda M: I was at work in Markham Canada, listening to the radio. When they announced that a plane hit the first tower I thought that it was an ad for an action film. When the second plane hit and the towers collapsed I realized this was no commercial but really happening. But what touched me the most is what happened the next morning. A co-worker who is from an Islamic country half jokingly said that I shouldn’t be seen with her, a Muslim. I took her and gave her a big hug and told her not to say that because the people that did that weren’t real Muslims. They were just using the religion for their own selfish agenda. Then we both shed a few tears for all the people that were lost that day.

    Once again, this is the result of airbrushing 1,400 years of Islam’s wicked deeds from history. Islam’s war against the West didn’t start in 2001 – it started in 711 AD, a full 1,300 years ago – with the invasion of the Iberian Peninsular. But political correctness renders those who briong up this subject as bigots and racists. And Tony Blair, in a piece in the Daily Mirror told us the “War on Terror” would last another generation. Of course, there’s no mention that this has been going on for 60 or more generations, from Pelayo and Martel to the present day and well into the future. At the time of Vienna in 1683, 45 or so generations had already fought the Jihadis.

    Very, very true. A lot of people assume Islam’s war on the West began in 2001. Even a lot of the people who realize it goes back further are likely thinking of the attack on the Cole in 2000, or the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, or the hijacking of the Achille Lauro in 1985, or the airline hijackings of the 1960s and 1970s, or the suicide bombings in Israel from that same period.

    Only a few understand that this goes back *centuries*.

    Islam never completely stopped being a threat”but it is a *resurgent threat*.

    From the defeat of the Barbary pirates by American and European sea power and the liberation of Greece in the early 19th century, Islam”in the face of a resolute and technologically superior West”turned in on itself and withered.

    But then we largely allowed ourselves to forget.

    But Islam never forgot”and now it is surging back, in all its foul malignancy.

    I’ve always liked your username”but sadly, I doubt many people beyond Jihad Watch readers and a few others have the slightest idea what the “Spirit of 1683″ is.
