Who’s interested? The extremist nutters who produce and follow fisabeelillah.org, that’s who.
The website’s name is a reference to “jihad in the path of Allah”. It is true to that name. It offers tapes from hate preachers such as al Qaeda’s Anwar al Awlaki, Abu Hamza, Murtaza Khan, and Ali al Timimi.
Let’s take a look at some of the 25 people on the “confirmed guest” list on Fisabeelillah’s Facebook page.
Here’s someone calling him or herself “Moe B Skool”. Nice Facebook avatar:
How about “Irhaabi Mahmood“. Irhabi is Arabic for “terrorist”. The double vowel is a Salafi affectation in English transliteration.
From his “about me” entry:
love my relegion and love the scholars of haqq [truth] and not baatil [falsehood]. love all my muslim bros and sis and hate the kuffar. l love shaykh usama and all the mujahideen.
all the muslim rulers are apostates (MURTADDEEN)
What’s Irhaabi’s favourite music? “jihaad nasheed”. (A nasheed is an Islamic song.)
Tarek Mehanna, 27, of Sudbury and Ahmad Abousamra, 28, who last lived in Mansfield, were charged in a 10-count indictment with providing and conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, and other charges. Abousamra left Boston for Syria nearly three years ago after being questioned by the FBI, according to the bureau.
Acting US Attorney Michael K. Loucks also released two undated photos of Mehanna smiling at Ground Zero in New York City with friends, as well as excerpts of conversations he allegedly had online in which he expressed admiration for Al Qaeda, the 19 hijackers who participated in the 9/11 attacks, and Osama bin Laden.
“I look to him . . . as being my real father, in a sense,’’ Mehanna allegedly wrote on April 28, 2006.
On to Mohamed Niaz.
Awaiting Destiny to meet my lovable Lord and his last and final lovable messenger(sals) (Think about death everyday atleast 10 times and try to increase that , so you will ask more for forgiveness to almighty and you will be truthful and honest)
Here’s Saleem Hussain Shah. There’s not much room for doubt about what he likes.
Nour Samhat is into the Al Aqsa intifada.
Is this the lifetime ambition of Abu Shu’aib?
Mr Begg really pulls them in, doesn’t he.
Isn’t it great that public funding of the Stowe Centre helps to make such gatherings possible.
