Recently, CAIR announceed the keynote speaker will be Imam Johari Abdul-Malik (right). And, what a controversial imam he is! Malik showed a glimmer of what is likely his Islamic supremacist ideology in 2004 at Dar al Hijrah, a controversial mosque located in Falls Church, VA., where he is the outreach director. Malik proclaimed Islam in the USA will be America's first religion!
Abdul Malik:People even under the pressures that you and I know about, the deen of Islam is growing because people see even within all of this struggle it is better to be a Muslim under these conditions than to be a kaffir under any conditions... before Allah closes our eyes for the last time you will see Islam move from being the second largest religion in America-that's where we are now- to being the first religion in America
You can hear him in his own words here and read a little about the mosque where he works.
Imam Johari al-Malik worked with Anwar Awlaki who was an Imam at Dar al Hirhrah in 2001-2002. Malik defended him many times here. In 2011, Malik blamed an unsubstantiated torture claim as the reason Awlaki changed into a more radical Muslim. However, the Investigative Project disputes how moderate Awlaki was while in America (see previous link). Afterall, he did catch the attention of law enforcement before he left the U.S., right?
Malik was reported to have said at a Muslim Brotherhood linked Islamic Association of Palestine meeting in 2001 (ref: previous link):
I am gonna teach you now. You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work. You can blow up power supplies… the water supply, you can do all forms of sabotage and let the world know that we are doing it like this because they have a respect for the lives of innocent people.
There's that phrase "innocent people" again. Who decides who's guilty in Islam and therefore not innocent, anyway? So far, I can't find the answer.
A FOIA document obtained by IPT says this about the Dar al Hirhrah mosque:
The Department of Treasury's Enforcement Communications System (TECS) records note that Dar al-Hijrah "is a mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in U.S.," "is associated with Islamic extremists," "has been under numerous investigations for financing and proving aid and comfort to bad orgs and members," has "been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing," and "has also been associated with encouraging fraudulent marriages."

Earlier this year, the primary Imam at Dar al Hirjrah, Sheik Shaker Elsayed, spoke about Muslim men - being the first in the Jihad line! Watch and listen to his disturbing words here.
And for some odd reason, Malik wants youto know he is not a pacifist Muslim when he wrote on his blog:
Let me say from the outset that I’m not a pacifist; the Quranic injunctions provide the right to self-defense. 2:178 retaliation has been prescribed …“O you who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the slain, the free for the free, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female, but if any remission is made to any one by his (aggrieved) brother, then prosecution (for the bloodwit) should be made according to usage, and payment should be made to him in a good manner; this is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy; so whoever exceeds the limit after this he shall have a painful chastisement.”2:216 (link added) (Z: fighting has been prescribed for you and) you dislike it …“ The life of this world is made to seem fair to those who disbelieve, and they mock those who believe, and those who guard (against evil) shall be above them on the day of resurrection; and Allah gives means of subsistence to whom he pleases without measure.”
Say what? Retaliation and fighting has been prescribed for you? Wow!
Way to go CAIR Oklahoma.
CAIR OK will give Rev. William Tabbernee, President of the Oklahoma Council of Churches their best buddy award!
According to CAIR Oklahoma, sharia law isn't really ever the real sharia law - even in Islamic countries ruled by sharia law!
"Do not refer to the laws in Muslim-majority countries (even those claiming to be “Islam!ic states”) as “sharia.” They are merely a legislated selection of humanly-created fiqh rules; they cannot be said to be conclusively dictated by sharia itself." Humanly-created? Any sharia law ruling is done by an Islamic authority (last paragraph)
