Comment by Blog Administrator:  As time permits, information about the new “speakers” for this year’s conference will be added, but from the list of OLD ‘SPEAKERS’, it’s clear, this is a conference to bring together muslims who support their sharia laws to enhance a campaign of colonizing, ethnic cleansing, oppression, intolerance, violence and/or terrorism.


1  Adawiyya – Sr. Aisha al-Adawiyya, USA

Posters of Muslim professionals will appear on buses and the London Underground in an attempt to give a positive slant on their contribution to Britain. Each declares why they are, in the campaign’s title, ‘Inspired by Muhammad.’ It is led by former MTV presented Kristiane Backer, who declares herself to be an ‘eco-Muslim’. She said Islam’s values were ‘universal’ and ‘sit well with British values.‘ (Delusional)

Kristiane Backer In Debate About Islam On British TV – The Big Questions 1/2



4 **Badawi** – Dr. Jamal Badawi,

Dr. Jamal Badawi (Canada)
“Islamist bigots as Jamal Badawi, author of a famously-retrograde volume, The Status of Woman in Islam, which recommends that females be excluded from political leadership. Badawi, who taught religious studies and is professor emeritus at St, Mary’s University in Nova Scotia, Canada, has also endorsed wife-beating and polygamy.”

Jamal Badawi http://www.isranet.org/justin-trudeau-speak-toronto-islamic-gathering-sponsored-hamas-linked-charities  Jamal Badawi leads many of the most important Muslim Brotherhood organizations in North America. In Canada, he was on the Muslim Association of Canada’s board of directors from 2002 to 2006. On its own website, MAC states that it “strives to implement Islam … as understood in its contemporary context by the late Imam, Hassan Albanna (1906-1949), the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.”  In his 50-point manifesto, Hassan al-Banna promoted the abolition of political parties and the instauration of a one-party State, the reform of the law, so that it will conform to sharia, an increase in the number of youth groups promoting jihad, the prohibition of dancing, the censorship of movies and plays and a dress code for all citizens enforced by a religious police. According to Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report (GMBDR) that monitors the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the world, MAC and Hamas (charter – article 2) are among the rare sections of the network openly acknowledging their links with the Brotherhood.  At point 20 of an internal Muslim Brotherhood’s memorandum released in the United States in 1991, Jamal Badawi is identified as a leader of the Islamist network in North America. At point 4 of this memorandum, the goal pursued by Badawi and the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is clearly expressed: “The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions… It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes.”


5.  Bayyah – Shaykh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, Mauritania


Abdallah Bin Bayyah, last known to be living in Saudia Arabia, is a well known global Muslim Brotherhood figure also from Mauritania. According to an on-line biography, Sheikh Bin Bayyah was born in Eastern Mauritania …” Sheikh Bin Bayyah is a member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, the theological body headed by Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi and affiliated with the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe, essentially comprising the European Muslim Brotherhood. PLEASE READ IT ALL


6.  Ceric – Dr. Mustafa Ceric


“Mustafa Ceric and Prof. Dr. Aref Ali Nayed, … were among the 138 ‘scholars’ who signed off on the ‘A Common Word’ da’wa letter sent, in October 2007, to the leaders of most of the world’s different branches of Christianity. Mustafa Ceric is on record [see Jihadwatch, August 17 2009] as having called for Shari’a law to be incorporated into the Bosnian Constitution. “Ceric made the controversial suggestion when he conducted Bosnia’s first Sharia mass wedding on Saturday in the central city of Zenica. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi reportedly paid for the weddings for the 20 couples and some 500 guests.”

Mustafa Ceric http://www.isranet.org/justin-trudeau-speak-toronto-islamic-gathering-sponsored-hamas-linked-charities  Like Jamal Badawi (Gamal Badawi), Mustafa Ceric (Ciric) is a member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research. The organization is currently led by the Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide Youssef Qaradawi. Until 2012 and for nineteen years, Mustafa Ceric was Bosnia’s grand mufti. Because of Qaradawi’s precarious health, observers often present Ceric as his possible successor.  In December 2010, at the Global Halal Congress held in Pakistan, Mustafa Ceric enjoined participants to “conquer the world through halal movement.” Ceric’s ambition is based on the fact that halal’s scope is “very wide and goes beyond the food sector to include other fields such as financial and commercial activities (banks, credit, loans, mortgages, credit cards, insurance, etc.), cosmetics and clothing, drugs, recreational activities, gambling activities, sexual attitudes and objects, interpersonal relations (marriages), etc.”


7  Chowdhury – Dr. Tawfique Chowdhury, Australia


Tawfique Chowdhury is the founder of AlKauthar Institute and Mercy Mission. Sheikh Tawfique is a grad from a ShariahCollege in Medinah, Saudi Arabia. As founder of a charity he appointed himself as the CEO and has worked in an IT company. Claims he will soon to be medical doctor. He speaks about Islamic finance, personal law and medical islamic ethics. He is on various TV Channels such as AlMajd, Peace TV, Islam Channel and ABC Asia Pacific.


“A lot of people out there in their hastiness have begun to say that I have sold out or allied with the disbelievers against Muslims. I did no such thing and I will never do any such thing. I would rather pass away than do such a thing. ” — – Dr. Tawfique Chowdhury


8. **Fazaga** – Imam Yasir (Yassir) Fazaga

Imam Yasir Fazaga (USA)
[Fazaga] strongly disputes that ‘Wahhabism’ in itself promotes violence.


9.  Hanson – Shaykh Hamza Yusuf Hanson (via Video), USA

10.  Idris – Shaykh Abdalla Idris, Canada

**Ali** – Shaykh Abdallah Idris Ali

Shaykh Abdalla Idris Ali (Canada)http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=1361

“Abdullah Idris Ali served as president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) from 1992-1997. ISNA enforces Wahhabi theological writ in some 1,200 American mosques, determining who will speak at every Friday prayer, and which literature will be distributed there. Ali is a member of the board of trustees for the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), a Saudi Wahhabi financial institution that, according to a CAIR report, owns about 27 percent of the estimated 1,200 mosques in the United States. Wahhabism is the most extreme, intolerant, violent form of Islam. Ali is also on the board of advisors for the American Muslim Council (AMC), whose founder and leader, Abdul Rahman Alamoudi, has publicly proclaimed his support for the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. Moreover, Alamoudi was arrested in September 2003 for illegally failing to notify the U.S. State Department of his numerous trips to Libya; illegally accepting $10,700 from the Libyan mission to the United Nations; and using two American and one Yemeni passport for at least ten of those trips. “


11.  Jackson – Dr. Abdal Hakim Jackson, USA

**Jackson** – Dr. Abdal Hakim Jackson

Dr. Abdal Hakim Jackson (USA)

“If one were to list all of Guirard’s contributors who are associated with, for example, the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID), one might be able to glean a web of Muslim Brotherhood associations. From the TrueSpeak list, it turns out that the following CSID members are also members of identified Muslim Brotherhood entities: Dr. Aboul-Hakin (Sherman Jackson). Trustee of NAIT and the MSA (Muslim Student Association), Board Member of the Fiqh Council of North America (ISNA affiliate)”


12.  Jibreel – Shaykh Muhamed Jibreel, Koran reader, aka Qari – Egypt

AlJifri – Habib Ali AlJifri

‘Habib Ali al-Jifri – In this interview with the Washington Post, Habib Ali answers (questions about)… Jihad, suicide bombings, and womens rights in Islam.’
“Islam does not sanction armed struggle except when opposing an aggressor who occupies another’s land …“

“Habib Ali is not just a spiritual teacher detached from the concerns of Muslim communities. At a major public lecture in London last December he took a strong political line, calling on people of justice to oppose the occupation of Iraq and Palestine”

in 2009, Al-Jifri was listed 37th in the world’s 500 most influential Muslims by GeorgetownUniversityCenter for Muslim-Christian Understanding.


14.  Khaled – Dr. Amr Khaled, Egypt

**Khaled** – Dr. Ustadh Amr Khaled

“I don’t have a stronger message than this: Kill yourself working for Egypt,” Amr Khaled told a crowd of thousands.


15.  Khan – Ustad Nouman Ali Khan, Founder of Bayyinah Institute

Nouman Ali Khan, a former MSA representative

Brigitte Gabriel —  http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=32245

The Muslim Brotherhood in America is creative and far reaching in its attempts to spread the world of Allah and hatred for infidels. They are now indoctrinating young Muslim children into radicalism in boy scouts and summer camps. At some of those “Summer Camps” children spend their afternoons sitting indoors, listening to speakers that preach “the way of Jihad” for true believers of Islam. Speakers usually are well known in the field of radical Islam and instruct Muslim youth on the mission of Jihad. Before 9/11, administrators and campers would refer to these camps as “jihad camps.” In the post 9/11 atmosphere, ICNA, MAS, MSA, YM, and YMS are much more cautious about making any references to jihad. The camps are now touted as retreats for Muslim children to learn about their heritage. Some speakers have prepared Muslim youth for their deaths with presentations such as “Preparation for Death,” by Dr. Nouman Ali Khan, “The Life in the Grave,” by Imam Badawi, and “Do You Want Paradise?” by Br. Jawad Ahmad. Ahmad began his lecture with the words, “This should be our goal in life, I want to go to Jannah [paradise].” They are using our laws and freedoms in preparing a new generation of martyrs and we are allowing it to happen in the name of multiculturalism and diversity.


16.  Lekovic – Sr. EdinaLekovic, Bosnia

Lying Muslim Spokeswoman Edina Lekovic Exposed by Steven Emerson


In this clip Lekovic talks about all the ways MPAC is helping to fight extremism—but Emerson points out that in July 1999, while Lekovic was managing editor of the UCLA Muslim Students’ Association’s newspaper, al-Talib, she published an article titled “Jihad in America,” containing this passage:  “When we hear someone refer to the great Mujahid (someone who struggles in Allah’s cause) Osama bin Laden as a ‘terrorist,’ we should defend our brother and refer to him as a freedom fighter, someone who has forsaken wealth and power to fight in Allah’s cause and speak out against oppressors. We take these stances only to please Allah.”


17.  Maghraoui – Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui, Algeria

Mokhtar Maghraoui, imam of the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR)

“The marriage of nine-year-old girls is not forbidden because according to the Hadith (the Prophet Mohammed’s sayings), Mohammed married Aisha when she was only seven-years-old and he consummated his union when she was nine,” wrote Sheikh Mohamed Ben Abderrahman Al-Maghraoui on his website (Maghrawi.net).


18.  Masoud – Ustad Moez Masoud, Egypt




An Egyptian’s Voice on the Embassy Attacks

….Which brings me to the main point, and the one which both you and Masoud seem to be missing.  Here is Masoud’s analysis as he presents it to this hypothetical youth:

“The part of you that wants to go is the part that wants to object, and it has every right to do so, in the same way that a Jewish person (say) would object to an improper citation of the Holocaust or something; and that is a good part in you, and I would like to see you nurture that. And the part of you that doesn’t want to go is the part that does not approve of the way in which this objection is being expressed — you don’t think you should break laws, you don’t think you should use curse words — and I completely condone you in all of that.  And so I would say why don’t we together … come up with alternative suggestions with which we can have it our way?  Where we can object, and at the same time be civilized and actually be representative of the Prophet Muhammad, as we object to the improper characterization of the Prophet Muhammad?  We want to have his character while we ‘defend him’ and represent him.”

……So where is the part of him (Ustad Moez Masoud) that recognizes and condemns the blatant anti-American prejudice and stereotyping?  Apparently it’s okay with Masoud to direct his anger against the US Embassy, merely because the perpetrator happened to be American.  This is exactly like the enmity that peaceful Muslims constantly endure just because many terrorists happen to be Muslim.  One would think that Muslims of all people would be especially sensitive to the injustice of this guilt by association.  How can Masoud be so blind to it?  How can you?


19.  Mogahed – Sr. Yasmin Mogahed, Activist

A Talk on Hijab by Yasmin Mogahed by YASMIN MOGAHED | MARCH 21, 2010 1:20 AM


Yasmin Mogahed: Does The Hutaree Militia Represent Christianity? A Muslim Knows Better

If there’s news of a Muslim terrorist, Islam becomes complicit in the crime. Yet few people are going to accuse Christianity of motivating the terrorism of the Hutaree militia.


20.  Nasr – Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr, USA


For example, the keynote speaker, Seyyed Hossein Nasr of George Washington University stated that the term ‘anti-Semitism’ in fact was originally directed at the Arabs in Spain and was directed only at Jews in the aftermath of World War II. Actually, the term dates only to 1879 and was coined by the German journalist and agitator Wilhelm Marr as a specifically anti-Jewish expression.  Nasr helpfully pointed out that Islam was not a homogeneous, monolithic whole. But however heterogeneous Islam was, something called Islamic civilization now sought to “become itself,” to “overcome all the curtailments since the colonial period,” and “regain what it was, and what it has lost.” While “errors” were committed on the Islamic side, on balance Nasr put the blame on the West, not least of all the “festering wound of Palestine in the side of the entire Arab world.” He also stated curiously that there had been an attempt to obliterate the Arabic origins of words in English, such as ‘adobe’ (actually from the ancient Egyptian word for brick, dbt). He also asserted that streams north of Taos, New Mexico had Arabic names.


Seyyed Hossein Nasr’s book The Heart Of Islam: Enduring Values for Humanity. An apologist’s view of Islam, the text habitually conceals the darker sides of fundamentalist Islam. In the book Nasr writes, “When some people attack Islam for inciting struggle in the name of justice, they forget the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution.” In this rudimentary and erroneous observation, Nasr is equating terrorist attacks and suicide bombings enacted on innocent civilians to throwing tea into the BostonHarbor.


From a Muslim perspective, this is a virtue. Seyyed Hossein Nasr, a professor at GeorgeWashingtonUniversity and author of many books about Islam, suggests that Christianity was incomplete because, unlike Islam, it offered no comprehensive system for governance. Nasr asserts that because Christianity “had no Divine legislation of its own, it had to absorb Roman law in order to become the religion of a civilization.” Therefore “in Christian civilization law governing human society did not enjoy the same Divine sanction as the teachings of Christ. In fact this lack of a Divine Law in Christianity had no small role to play in the secularization that took place in the West during the Renaissance.” By contrast, “Islam never gave unto Caesar what was Caesar’s. Rather, it tried to integrate the domain of Caesar itself, namely, political, social, and economic life, into an encompassing religious worldview.”


21.  Ramadan – Prof. Tariq Ramadan, Switzerland

**Ramadan** – Professor Tariq Ramadan

Tariq Ramadan (Switzerland)
by Stephen Schwartz – August 28, 2009

”Born in Switzerland, Ramadan is the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, founder of the radical Muslim Brotherhood….Ramadan has been barred from entry into the U.S. since 2004…….Early in July of 2009, however, given the new atmosphere of outreach to Muslim radicals under President Barack Obama, the Second Circuit U.S. Appeals Court reversed the lower-court ruling, effectively nullifying the prohibition on an American visa for Ramadan …”

“Tariq Ramadan – http://www.isranet.org/justin-trudeau-speak-toronto-islamic-gathering-sponsored-hamas-linked-charities – In his book Radical Reform, Ramadan presents Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide Youssef Qaradawi as a “prominent scholar” who has outlined the attitudes and the kind of behaviour that Muslims living in the West should adopt. In another book, Ramadan wrote about Qaradawi that he “deeply respect(s) the man and the scholar and that (he) would be the last one to deny it.” Qaradawi promotes the conquest of the West by Muslims, he claims that Hitler was “sent by Allah to punish the Jews”, he endorses the killing of those who leave Islam… In 2011, in Dallas, Tariq Ramadan has openly enjoined his supporters to “coloniz(e) positively the United States of America … with our understanding of Islam, our principles.” In a 2004 interview given to an Egyptian periodical, Tariq Ramadan described the Canadian legal framework as “one of the most open in the world”. He suggested that Muslim leaders operating in Canada should take full advantage of it in order to discretely implement sharia principles one at a time. Ramadan added that “for the time being”, it would be preferable not to openly mention the term sharia since it “is laden with negative connotations in the Western mind.”…”


22.  Rhodus -Ustad Yahya Rhodus, USA


23  Saul – Dr. John Ralston Saul

24.  Shakir – Imam Zaid Shakir, USA

**Shakir** – Imam Zaid Shakir,

Imam Zaid Shakir

MOYERS: I’d like to know a serious question: what is it that Allah might find illegitimate about America?
ZAID SHAKIR: I think that as a Muslim, I would say the … ability ultimately to enact strictures and legislation that might be inconsistent with what we have generally…
MOYERS: With Islamic law?
ZAID SHAKIR: As general religious law, would be objectionable.

* * *
“A copy of the pamphlet [written by Shakir] was found in the apartment of a suspect in the first WorldTradeCenter bombing, in 1993. Mr. Shakir says he was questioned by the F.B.I., but had no link to the man, and that was the end of it.”

 27.  Vendley – Dr. William Fray Vendley, USA



And the US State Dept. will remain mute over the participation of, Kenneth R. Insley, Jr., who “bills himself as a consultant to the US State Department.” Also, what about the Christian branches who had representatives there?

“four Catholic bishops, two patriarchs, an Anglican minister from the UK, and a representative of the Roman Orthodox Patriarchate in Jerusalem, as well as attendees from Religions for Peace (including the American William F. Vendley).  The holocaust-denying, anti-Zionist rabbinical group Neturei Karta has six persons attending.”
