Three men were standing in front of the Masjid At-Taqwa Mosque in Brooklyn, New York when several angry muslims came out and muscle manned them and took them into the mosque basement for “interrogation” grilling them for quite a while on why they were standing in front of this building! I have not heard a darn thing about this on any news networks. The blog-o-sphere is talking about this news, but where is the lamestream media?
Crickets chirping as usual!
However, if this behavior would have been displayed by a christian church the church building would have had so many reporters in front of it the building wouldn’t be seen. There would be reporters making vigilance, waiting for the death of the church and those who run it and attend it, sort of a death watch! If christians would have perpetrated a crime like this the FBI would have stormed the place, locked it up tighter than a drum and everyone in America would have known about it in two seconds flat! But since it’s a mosque and some GROUPS have more rights than others the media is stone dead quiet! They don’t care! They don’t have to!
This mosque is lead by imam Siraj Wahaj famous for making the statement, “‘If Muslims were more clever politically,’ . . . ‘they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir [leader] and give allegiance to him . . .[T]ake my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.'”*
The question is why. The illegal activity is quoted below from a first hand account by Bos Smith who holds a law degree from Wake Forest University:
If you tarry in front of the Masjid At-Taqwa in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district and dare to take a photo, you might get hauled away by a group of angry Muslims in Islamic attire to the basement of the facility where a group of twenty “security guards” in karate suits will interrogate you.
…Ali Kareem, the head of security for Siraj Wahaj’s mosque, conducted the grilling. —He further insisted on securing our identities and obtaining our motives for such a violation of Islamic space.
Being surrounded by a group of militant guards in a mosque basement from which there is no means of escape is not a comforting place to be for a Wall Street financier.
…Kareem was impatient and did not want a detailed explanation of the reason for our excursion (simple sight-seeing) or a graphic account of the sights we had seen and photographed.
…At last, we blurted out that we were admirers of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) and wanted to obtain information about conversion. We were even knowledgeable enough to blurt out “Salaam” and “Allahu akbar.”
The last utterance seemed to be the “Open Sesame” that got us out of the basement and back to Bedford Street—The experience was disconcerting. Surely, anyone who takes a picture of St. Patrick’s Cathedral or the Riverside Church is not hauled off to a basement for questioning —What is taking place within Masjid At-Taqwa?
And what about Siraj Wahaj, the celebrated imam of this mosque who claims to be a moderate?
The place has played host to a number of notorious exponents of radical Islam, including Clement Rodney Hampton-El (Dr. Rashid), a key player in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Mr. Hampton-El is presently cooling his heels in a federal slammer since he was found guilty of seditious conspiracy….

Here is another blog writing about this illegal activity.
This is the deal, if Muslims think that taxpayers, tourists, or neighbors can’t walk on the streets they pay for then I think it’s time an American wide COUNTER PROTEST take place in front of mosques. Muslim Space? Are you kidding? So what’s next? People won’t be able to walk or stand in front of your houses? Where you work? Ahhh, I don’t think so! This is AMERICA! If you think you will get away with this kind of thinking your crazier than I thought!
This is America. We will walk and stand and we will take pictures of what ever is out in public view and there is not a DAMN thing you can do about it! Get over yourselves! Your not that special!
Even the Creator of the Universe allows us to come before Him and stand before Him in His throne room, so a mosque is nothing special! It’s just another building on a street! If you don’t like get the hell out of our country!
Hopefully, kidnapping charges will filed against ALL involved!
