Islamic Center of Cleveland Tied to Terrorists

Another terrorist training center.

Via Investigative Project

On June 18, 2004, Fawaz Damrah, then imam of the Islamic Center of Cleveland, was convicted of unlawfully obtaining his United States citizenship through a false or fraudulent application. Damrah concealed from the INS his membership in and/or affiliation with: (1) Afghan Refugees Services, Inc., aka Al-Kifah Refugee Center; (2) Palestinian Islamic Jihad, aka the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine; and (3) Islamic Committee for Palestine (ICP). Damrah was sentenced to two-months in prison, four months of in home confinement, three years of supervised release and stripped of his citizenship.

At his mosque, Damrah openly raised money for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, telling a 1991 fundraiser that Sami Al-Arian’s Islamic Committee for Palestine (ICP) was “the active arm of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine. We preferred to call it the ‘Islamic Committee for Palestine’ for security reasons. Two years earlier, Damra attended an ICP conference in Chicago, where he argued “terrorism, and terrorism alone, is the path to liberation” for Palestinians.

Damrah’s close work with Al-Arian led prosecutors to designate him “Unindicted Co-Conspirator One” in Al-Arian’s PIJ support trial.

Other funds raised in the Islamic Center of Cleveland went to the Holy Land Foundation, which was found guilty, along with five of the organization’s officials, for funneling money to Hamas in November of 2008.

Damrah was also named a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing trial.

 

The replacement imam, Ahmed Alzaree, made some rather disturbing remarks, specifically a sermon in which he makes the following statement:

Dear brothers and sisters, the talk about the Day of Judgment is long and full of things that will confuse the human mind and put fear in the hearts of the faithful. Every day that comes is much more Worse than the day before it as we get closer to the hour. Among the signs of the approach of Day of Judgment is what the messenger of Allah PBUH said: “The hour of judgment shall not happen until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Muslims shall kill the Jews to the point that the Jew shall hide behind a big rock or a tree and the rock or tree shall call on the Muslim saying: hey, O Muslim there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him, except the Gharqad tree which will not say, for it is the tree of Jews.” Agreed upon. This is seemed to be very soon and close now. We ask Allah SWT not to test us so hardly if we live till this horrible moment insha’allah.

 

They feel the same way about Christians.

  1. I think we need something better suited to identify potential terror promoters than forms with questions like,” are you a terrorist? have you ever been a terrorist? would you lie about being a terrorist?” Once upon a time there was a superb agency called the FBI. It was tasked with stamping out domestic terrorism against the United States. As it has been and continues to be run by subversive terrorists, is it any wonder they couldnt or wouldn’t identify real danger if it kicked them in the ass?
