“Hi guys, I was just interviewed by the NY Daily News’ Brooklyn Borough Youth section, about a proposed Mosque in Brooklyn. Well that is what they told me it would be about, most of the interview was about my views on Islam, and this site. It will be published in about two weeks.”
I was not able to locate the story online this morning, so I put in a call to editor Nicholas C. Klopsis. He said the article is finally online, but they decided against using any of my interview. After to speaking to Nicholas, I found the article and see the article is mostly about why the Mosque should be built.
For the record I just want to post some of the questions, that were asked of me.
1.The interviewer stated that there are a lot of Jews in the area, and asked how would the Mosque effect them.
I stated that the Mosque would divide the community, which it is already doing. That Islam is anti-Semitic, mentioning Islam calls for the dominance of Christians and Jews.
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
I also said that the Islamic scriptures call for Muslims to fight and kill Jews, to reach judgement day.
Book 041, Number 6985:
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
2. I was then asked why I quote someone like Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on my site, but not “liberal” Muslims.
“Those who know nothing about Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those people are witless. Islam says: ‘Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all!’ Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by the infidel? Islam says: ‘Kill them, put them to the sword and scatter them.’ Islam says: ‘Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword.’ The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

“Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam … Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the
only accepted religion on Earth.”
This is the quote in the article from CAIR.
“The skyrocketing of opposition against mosques nationwide shows the impact of anti-Muslim sentiment based on unfounded fear and hatred,” said Aliyah Latif, civil rights director at CAIR-NY, an organization that defends the religious rights of Muslim-Americans.
Unfounded? Considering the person who interviewed me had read my site, you would think they would have atleast tried to counter this obvious lie.
For those that are interested, here is the article they ran.
