**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
On Sunday (and thereafter), I asked what Northwest Flight 253 Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was doing in Houston in August 2008. I surmised that he probably went to some extremist mosques (redundant), and that the reactive FBI was probably all over Houston, now, trying to do the investigative work the agency should have done before the guy loaded up his undies.

And now we find out some of the details. You can bet this outfit is extremist. Might even have helped him out and had some tight connections with his Qaeda buddies in Yemen.
I’ve checked out the school, the AlMaghrib Institute, and it’s clearly extremist–pure Sunni extremism and hate. For those unfamiliar with the niceties (or, more appropriately, the not-niceties) of Islam, Maghrib (also Magreb) is the sunset prayer in Islam, the fourth out of five prayers in the day for Muslims. The name is ripped off from Judaism’s evening prayer, said after nightfall, Ma’ariv.
It is tied to the Islamic Society of North America, the extremist organization that Bush administration members visited and spoke to (remember Karen Hughes?). In case you forgot, like CAIR, ISNA was also an unindicted co-conspirator in funding HAMAS terrorism, as noted in the Holy Land Foundation trial.
The AlMaghrib site notes that its students “sponsored 96 orphans” a/k/a the children of terrorists (“martyrs”). Or sometimes there aren’t even those, and it’s just a straight out front funding terrorism. In this case, you can bet on that, since they sponsored the “orphans” through Islamic Relief, a HAMAS/Al-Qaeda charity, which I’ve written about and the fundraisers for which I’ve infiltrated undercover.
Among its instructors is Suhaib Webb, an Oklahoma born White guy who converted to Islam, who studied in Egypt at Al-Azhar University a/k/a Kill the Jews and the Americans U. Webb is tight with Siraj Wahhaj, the unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 Al-Qaeda World Trade Center bombing, and has given Wahaj a testimonial for fundraising purposes.
Webb is also an instructor for another online Islamic “school,” Islamic American Universal (based in the Detroit area), which was previously headed by Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. Sources have told me over the years that Webb was a skinhead before he became a Muslim–same difference. I’ve heard Webb speak at an Islamic Ramadan Iftar dinner I attended undercover in Dearbornistan, and the guy is frightening.
The man accused of trying to bring down a Detroit-bound U.S. airliner on Christmas Day spent two weeks in Houston last year attending a seminar conducted by a Web-based Islamic education center.
Waleed Basyouni is the vice president of the AlMaghrib (ahl-MAHG’-rihb) Institute. He says Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (OO’-mahr fah-ROOK’ ahb-DOOL’-moo-TAH’-lahb) registered online in April 2008, then attended a two-week program hosted by the institute in Houston in August 2008.
He says school records show Abdulmutallab identified himself as a 21-year-old Nigerian student at University College London and the London School of Economics who was studying mechanical engineering and business finance.
Basyouni says the institute is working with the authorities on the case.
Yeah, sure they are . . . now. And watch them challenge warrants and lawyer up so they don’t have to answer questions about what they knew and when they knew it.

Who did Abdulmutallab meet while he was “studying” (jihad) at this “school”? And who were his instructors? I wouldn’t be surprised if Webb was one of them and further radicalized him.
**** UPDATE: BTW, AlMaghrib Institute has its location of “hate education” all over America, including in Dearbornistan. Here’s a map, and check out how each city has its own “Islamic name.”
