Political commentator and fellow blogger, Debbie Schlussel, has exposed the Iraqi Shia leader in Dearborn Michigan, Imam Hassan Qazwini, as a promoter of Islamic extremism in a number of posts on her blog, Debbie Schlussel.com. Click here, here and here. The man is no “moderate” Muslim leader, no matter how many politicians hands he manages to shake.
According to Debbie Schlussel:
Imam Hassan Qazwini is …the extremist Imam and friend of President George W. Bush, who runs the largest mosque in North America, the Islamic Center of America in Dearbornistan. In 1998, the mosque–then in Detroit–was the first mosque to which I went undercover. I wrote about it in The Detroit Newsistan, before the paper became Muslim-occupied territory under such boneheaded individuals as editorial page editor Nolan Dhimmi Finley. At the time, the mosque hosted Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who delivered a long hate-filled rant against Jews and Christians (and in praise of Saddam Hussein). When Farrakhan called Jewish Americans “forces of evil” with a “Satanic mentality.”
Imam Qazwini and his congregants gave him a standing ovation. That’s not to mention that the Imam and other Muslim officials introduced Farrakhan as “our dear brother” and “a freedom fighter.”
Imam Qazwini is also tight with Hezbollah spiritual leader, Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, who issued the fatwa to blow up 300 U.S. Marines and embassy officials in 1983. Qazwini is tight with the Ahmadinejad government of Iran and is an open supporter of Hezbollah, HAMAS, and every other terrorist group you can think of (though he claims–like they all claim–that he is against Al-Qaeda).
Now remember dear readers, this is an Imam who is “buds” with the chief spiritual leader of Hezbollah, a terrorist organization that murdered Jews in Argentina, launched thousands of rockets on Israeli civilians, as well as being an open sympathizer of Hamas, the other terrorist organization that loves to murder Jews, and wants to institute the jizya “poll” tax on its Christian minority. This is the kind of “moderate” that the west falls for time and again, in spite of proof in existence that they are indeed extremists….not moderates/modernists.
It was disgusting to see the same individual condemn “extremism”, though he is fully on record that he supports extremists like Hamas and Hezbollah, and can only mean that his condemnation of al-Qaida and other jihadi groups around the world is a disingenuous one. So forget about the label of “moderate”. Thanks to Debbie Schlussel for keeping a close tabs on this IslamONazi.
