So says James Ujaama (pictured). And characteristic of the mainstream media, the New York Daily News (the only news source to report on this at all) buried the news in the contrast between the Long Island jihad-supporting mosque and the Brooklyn mosque that refused to support Abu Hamza. The mainstream media is avid to portray Muslims in the U.S. as opposed to jihad terror — so much so that when some support it, the media does all it can to obscure the news. “Oh, by the way, a Long Island mosque funded Al Qaeda,” Elder of Ziyon, May 3, 2014 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Which is bigger news: that a mosque on Long Island funded a terror group, or that a Brooklyn mosque didn’t?The New York Daily News decided the latter:
When a Seattle man working in London with hate preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri flew to New York to raise money for jihad fighters in Afghanistan, a Brooklyn mosque told him to get lost, he testified.
Witness James Ujaama said a Long Island mosque chipped in to help Abu Hamza’s Supporters of Sharia group. “What was the reaction you received from the mosque in Brooklyn?” a prosecutor asked Thursday. “Not very supportive,” Ujaama said.
Abu Hamza, 56, is charged with aiding Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
I haven’t been following the case, but I don’t see anything else about any Long Island mosque funding terrorists (although there have been terrorists that attended at least one mosque on Long Island.)
It appears that political correctness forces the media to emphasize when American Muslims don’t support terror, and all but ignore when they do. This is pandering and ultimately an insult not only to the general readership but to US Muslims as well, as it implies that Muslims who say no to terror are somehow praiseworthy while those who support terror are the norm.
Meanwhile, shouldn’t people know the name of this Long Island mosque whose members happily fork over money to terrorists?
