Recently, law enforcement in Taos County, New Mexico, raided what they now believe to be a radical Islamic terrorist ‘training camp’ in the desert near the border of Colorado. Shortly thereafter, the person who the Taos County Sheriffs Department raided the facility to find, Siraj Wahhaj Jr., was revealed as the son of an extremist imam in Brooklyn, Siraj Wahhaj Sr.
Revelations suggest that the elder Siraj Wahhaj was not only an extremist imam whose son decided to set up a camp in the middle of nowhere to allegedly train children to be future school shooters, the Brooklyn imam was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, and seems to have ties to the Democrat Party, as well as the Council on American-Islamic Relations. As his links to the DNC were exposed, it even turned out he had been watched by the FBI for 13 years, and had ties to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and even folks like Linda Sarsour. Of course, the media is strangely silent on these connection.
Allegedly, this story began when Siraj Ibn Wahhaj of Clayton County, Georgia, took his son from his mother’s house, allegedly to go to the park in December. Instead, the mother never saw her child again.
Siraj Ibn Wahhaj Jr. had talked about getting the child, who suffered from a number of ailments, an exorcism. At some point, he reportedly took his son to the New Mexico compound that law enforcement authorities eventually raided.
They didn’t find the child alive, but they did find remains, which have since been identified as the missing child.
Upon raiding, the Taos Sheriff also found numerous weapons, including an AR-15 and four pistols that Wahhaj was carrying, as well as 11 malnourished children as old as 15.
According to an investigative reporter named Paul Sperry, Wahhaj had been on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s radar for 13 years, under suspicion of jihadist activity. They were even watching the compound, though they refused to do anything.
The elder Siraj Wahhaj, however, is not in hiding at all. Indeed, he openly makes clear his views, is the imam of Brooklyn’s At-Taqwa mosque, and was once a member of CAIR’s national board of advisers.
Imam Wahhaj, who has been called an unindicted co-conspirator in the first assault on the World Trade Center, which killed six and injured 1,042, offered the opening prayer at an event called “Jumah at the DNC” in 2012, according to Israel Matzav, a blogger.
She even praised the imam last year in front of the Islamic Society of North America, an organization which has alleged terrorist ties. Sarsour declared that Imam Wahhaj was her “mentor, motivator, and encourager.”
The imam was also a keynote speaker at two fundraising banquets in Florida, both of which were held by CAIR, at the end of 2016. The organization, of course, has been alleged to have ties to Hamas (a Palestinian terrorist group) and the Muslim Brotherhood.
He has even been said to be the first Muslim to lead prayer in front of Congress, which he did in 1991.
Of course, he has a long history of extremely questionable statements. Citing Islamic law, he’s called for the death of gays and lesbians.
He has also predicted that the United States’ democracy would ‘crumble,’ and that it would be replaced with Islamic law, and has even said that he believed it was his duty to “replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran.”
This is the kind of person who should be speaking in front of elected politicians in the United States?
While giving testimony, he declared that Rahman was a “respected scholar” and strong preacher of Islam, and even said that he felt honored to have the terrorist supporter, who died in prison last year, in his mosque.
Several congregants from his mosque were charged and convicted of providing material support for Islamic terrorists in the timeframe leading up to that infamous 1993 bombing.
The father’s connections to a number of unsavory characters and organizations have been well-documented.
However, not only did the mainstream media play down that information, but they also tried to play down the connection to Islamic extremism as well as the Democrat party that the Wahhaj family had.
The mainstream media seems to be almost refusing to report honestly on a group of Islamic extremists, with a number of extremist ties, who were training for school shootings in the desert at a makeshift compound. What else are they refusing to report on?
