From Daniel Pipes’ definitive series of posts on KGIA:
Aug. 18, 2007 update: Beila Rabinowitz alerts me to another Islamist feature of the KGIA’s advisory board: Imam Talib Abdul-Rashid, about whom I have previously written (noting that he “belongs to the ‘National Committee to Free Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin’,” a convicted cop-killer), turns out to be the “resident imam” of the Mosque of Islamic Brotherhood, Harlem. The MIB’s logo shows a sword with the words “There is no deity but God and Muhammad is his prophet.” Yet more alarming, however, is the Muslim Brethren slogan, devised by Hasan al-Banna himself, printed right on the “About us” page:
Allah is our goal
The Prophet Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah is our leader
The Qu’ran is our constitution
Jihad is our way
And death in the way of Allah is our promised end.
Abdul-Rashid’s bio also lists that he is a member of the “N.Y.C. Dept. of Education Chancellor’s Interfaith Advisory Committee to the NYC Dept. of Education,” pointing to the deeper state of rot in the whole of the DOE when it comes to Islam. That this man is on the KGIA board offers further confirmation of the school’s Islamist quality.
Aug. 19, 2007 update: In a mailing today, CAIR not only urges “Muslim New Yorkers and other people of conscience” to sign an AWAAM petition supporting KGIA, but it also announces its co-sponsorship of a rally tomorrow at the NYC Department of Education with the same end of showing solidarity with KGIA. Talk about the school being wrapped in the mantle of Islamists!
