JB Van Hollen: Chapter Four

In a series of brief "JBVanHollen is right" posts, this is #4, albeit this situation occurred in San Francisco:

After his firing, the Egyptian-born imam, Safwat Morsy, opened a new mosque in a basement just around the corner from the Islamic Society, in the heart of this city's gritty Tenderloin district. To swelling crowds, the Sheik Safwat has railed against "the traitor criminal Souleiman Ghali" and called for jihad, or holy war, against Israel and U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. "Our killed ones are in paradise and their killed ones are in hell," he told worshipers in 2003, in a sermon that was translated from Arabic for the court case....

Beware of "the new American Islam," Sheik Safwat warned followers in the 2003 sermon translated for the court case, "a faith that does not talk about the jihad; a faith that does not talk about the confrontation with tyrants; a faith that does not talk."...

...He praised martyrdom. While the Muslim dead of Jerusalem, Afghanistan, Iraq and the Sudan were in paradise, he said, the infidel dead were burning in hell. "The beacon of the jihad will not be extinguished by the tank and will not be extinguished by the airplanes," he said. "The clash of civilizations and the combat of cultures and the recapture of the land and honor, this is what believers are waiting for."

Then again, we have NO idea if it's occurring in Milwaukee--or not, eh?
