Hamas-linked CAIR claims Georgia mosques found to be “dangerous” are actually “warm and welcoming”

Jihad Watch recently ran a piece, courtesy of United West and Sharia Crime Stoppers, which provided a sworn affidavit from a retired U.S. federal agent, counter-terrorism expert and Arabic linguist, Dave Gaubatz, who conducted an independent study of Georgia mosques. Gaubatz is also one of the authors of the book Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America. The Jihad Watch article was entitled “Georgia mosques teaching jihad, imam says ‘there has not been another 911 in America because Islam is winning.’” The affidavit concluded:

Final Evaluation of Statesboro, Georgia Mosque: Dangerous, but final evaluation pending.

Final Evaluation of Masjid Jihad, Savannah, Georgia: Dangerous, but final evaluation pending.

Final Evaluation of the Islamic Center of Savannah, Georgia:Extremely Dangerous (on a scale of 1-10 this mosque would be rated 9).

As a result of the study — which clearly provides evidence on why such mosques (which are by no means singular) and Islamic centers pose a threat to public safety — Hamas-linked CAIR has issued a “warning” to Georgia mosques “to be vigilant.” CAIR offers no rebuttal to Gaubatz’s charges other than to say that “Georgia mosques are warm and welcoming” and that the mosques need to be on the lookout for attacks.

No one said they weren’t “warm and welcoming,” and this is one of the biggest problems in Western culture: a lack of understanding of the fact that enemies of freedom can be “warm and welcoming” to your face while preaching the conquest and subjugation of infidels and apostates, and calling for other human rights abuses.

CAIR and other jihad-connected groups stifle information about abuses sanctioned by Islam, but they are quick to use victimhood when the spotlight is on them.

“CAIR Warns Georgia Mosques to Be Vigilant,” International Quran News Agency

One man said he was Muslim. The other man, he said, was his cousin, who wanted to learn more about Islam.

“We welcome anybody,” said Afaneh. “This is a place of worship.” He gave them a copy of the Quran and brochures on Islam and invited them to stay and listen to the Friday sermon. Something nagged at Afaneh, though, because “they didn’t look happy. They were not smiley or looked like people who were coming to a place to learn. I felt there was something not right about them.”

His suspicions were right and helped prompt a statewide warning. Afaneh said he found out through the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that the men were alleged members of anti-Muslim groups Sharia Crime Stoppers and The United West, both labeled hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center. After their visits, they were “talking trash about the Islamic center. They said it was disgusting.”

One of the men wrote about his visit to the Savannah mosque in a report published on The United West website: “This would be a mosque that Islamic terrorists and their supporters who are travelling would feel comfortable attending,” he wrote. It also says in an analysis that “the IC of Savannah is the home for Islamic terrorists and their supporters and is used as a training base and regional HQ for developing the strategy for meeting the well-established and very open goal of forming an Islamic caliphate in America …”

Neither man could be reached for comment. Since then, the Georgia chapter of CAIR has warned mosques across the state to be vigilant.

“Georgia mosques are warm and welcoming and they should continue to be warm and welcoming, but we cannot let dangerous bigots take advantage of our hospitality by spying on us and inciting violence against us,” said Edward A. Mitchell, executive director of CAIR-Ga.

Mitchell said a second mosque in Statesboro was also visited. Jante Khabeer was at the Bulloch County Islamic Center in Statesboro in June when he heard knocking on the door. He called out to two men walking away. One pretended to be Muslim but mangled the traditional greeting. He also said “that he was Islam (not Muslim) and that the other man was interested in Islam.” “Something wasn’t clicking,” said Khabeer.

They asked when prayers began. By then, Khabeer suspected something was amiss. He told them 3 p.m., later than the 12:30 start time, when there would be fewer people. They didn’t return. He later recognized them from photos circulated by CAIR. He’s not afraid, just more alert. Many mosques have beefed up security in recent years, following several violent incidents and threats against Muslims in the United States and abroad.

In March, for instance, a massacre at two mosques in New Zealand left 51 people dead and scores injured. Much of the attack was broadcast live on Facebook. In the wake of that attack, mosques in metro Atlanta increased their security.

Accused shooter Brenton Tarrant, a suspected white supremacist, was arrested in the terrorist attack, the nation’s worst peacetime mass shooting. He recently pleaded not guilty.

And, in the US, a man, Craig Stephen Hicks, was arrested and charged with killing three Muslim college students in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in 2015, which was largely described as a hate crime. Hicks, who pleaded guilty last month, was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences without parole.

The national office of CAIR documented a 17% increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents nationwide in 2017 over 2016. And those only include cases that were reported.

Afaneh now worries followers of anti-Muslim groups might inspire others to do harm or harass members of the mosque……
