Guess Who Cheered Saddam’s Hanging?: Meet Moqtada’s American Insurgents

By Debbie Schlussel
By now, you’ve heard about the cheers for Shi’ite extremist Moqtada Al-Sadr at Saddam Hussein’s hanging, last Friday.
But you probably haven’t heard that many of those Arab-Americans dancing in the streets of Dearborn, Michigan are extremist Shi’ite supporters of the murderous Al-Sadr, too. They fervently support Hezbollah and HAMAS, too.
There’s a reason food was reportedly half off, that night, at La Shish–the restaurant chain owned by fugitive Hezbollah financier and federal indictee Talal Chahine.
Yes, Saddam Hussein was an evil, mass-murdering terrorist leader. He deserved what he got. But the group of radical Muslims dancing on his grave should disturb us. And many of them are on our soil.


Extremism Goes Mainstream: Shi’ite American Imam Husham Al-Husainy

Meet Husham Al-Husainy. In Iraq, he was an aircraft engineer. But in America, he’s an extremist cleric and disciple of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who enjoys huge mainstream support.
Imam Al-Husainy organized the “spontaneous,” “impromptu” rally, Friday Night, and was featured in most national and international press reports about the celebrating Iraqi-Americans.
Al-Husainy heads one of Dearborn’s three largest Shi’ite mosques, the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center mosque. The mosque is also among the largest is North America. And he enjoys prominence in the media as a respected Islamic authority.
Hussainy was one of the imams shown in photographs around the world being hugged by President Bush after we invaded Iraq, and he was invited to the Pentagon to confer with top officials.
But make no mistake. Imam Al-Husainy is no moderate. He was an advisor to the late Mohammed Bakr Al-Hakim, leader of the Iran-backed Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution. He’s allied with the mainstream of Iraq’s Shia Islam, which is terrorizing and driving out the few Christians left there.
Friday Night, Associated Press quoted Al-Husainy’s teenage son, Ali Al-Najjar:

This is the first time I’ve seen my dad this happy.

But I’ve seen him this happy on several occasions.
This past summer, Al-Husainy seemed very happy leading almost-daily protests of thousands of Hezbollah supporters on the streets of Dearborn and Detroit, swarming with swastikas and anti-Semitic, anti-American signs.
Later, I watched him very much enjoy himself at an anti-Semitic rally of 3,000 Hezbollah supporters at Dearborn’s Bint Jebail Cultural Center. He was among several who delivered hate-filled, anti-American rhetoric. I watched him cheer others on when they called for the hastened destruction of the Jews and when they said Americans are “diseased.”
After the event, he seemed very happy when he put his arms around Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s favorite rabbi, Yisroel Dovid Weiss of the Neturei Kartah, who attended the recent Holocaust-denial conference. “We make a great team,” he said of Weiss, who was flown into Detroit for the Hezbollah rallies.
Husainy seemed very happy in August 2004 when he led anti-Bush, anti-American rallies on the streets of Dearborn, which gave aid and comfort to the enemy in Iraq, at a time when Al-Sadr’s terrorist thugs, the Mehdi Army, were actively making life tough for American soldiers, as they are, again, now. (The Mehdi Army recently kidnapped an Iraqi-American soldier.)
Imam Husainy was also in great spirits when he led a number of pro-HAMAS and pro-Arafat rallies in the area. Yes, Shi’ites who hate Sunnis to death in Iraq, love Sunnis in Israel when they’re killing the Jews. In late 2004, he seemed thrilled to lead a rally on the streets of Dearborn, commemorating Arafat’s death. He and his followers held signs featuring enlarged photos of Khomeini at the rally.
Husainy was very happy to attack American soldiers in an interview:

I heard that many soldiers are running away or committing suicide or getting psychological treatment. I’m not surprised. . . . They act like an occupation force . . . . Iraqis don’t see the soldiers as friends.

In the same interview, he was very happy to engage in bizarre anti-American, anti-Israel conspiracy theories and rhetoric:

Saddam . . . he handed Iraq to the coalition. I believe he is an agent of America. . . . Saddam created a bunch of gangs who have no faith . . . . We also think some outsiders, with some Iraqis, and, by the way, I don’t want to exclude the Zionists. I think some extremists from the Mossad came in and took a chance to have some revenge, because we don’t know who killed [Imam Mohammed Bakr] Al-Hakim or Sergio Vieira De Mello, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Imam Al-Husainy and other Shi’ite leaders in Dearborn are not just followers of Khomeini, they are supporters of Moqtada Al-Sadr and proteges of his late uncle, Imam Mohammed Bakr Al-Sadr–who was murdered by Saddam Hussein. Every year, the Al-Sadr Foundation holds a fundraising banquet in Dearborn. Does any Foundation money go to fund the Mehdi Army?
A brochure announcing the 2005 event, quotes Bakr Al-Sadr’s Islamo-supremacist worldview with approval. It encompasses the separatist view the Shi’ites here in America, who produced the brochure, embrace:

One can either love Allah or love the world. But both the loves cannot be contained in one heart. Let us examine our hearts to see whether the love of Allah or the love of this world prevails over them. If the love of Allah prevails over our hearts, let us make it deeper. If, Allah forbid, the love of this world prevails, let us try to save ourselves from this dreadful malady.

The brochure also quotes Sadr on Khomeini:

The only thing I have sought in my life is to make the establishment of an Islamic government on earth possible. Since it has been formed in Iran under the leadership of Imam Khomeini, it makes no difference to me whether I am alive or dead because the dream I wanted to attain and hope I wanted to achieve have [sic] come true, thanks to Allah.

Remember, this is the same Khomeini who took Americans hostage for 444 days in Tehran. And few Shi’ites disapproved.
America’s Shi’ite enemies are not just in Sadr City or Central Beirut and Southern Lebanon. They are in America’s own Little Sadr City–East Dearborn, where they danced on the streets after Saddam Hussein’s execution.
Proving the old adage wrong. The enemy of my enemy is not always my friend.
Sometimes, he’s just our enemy. And, unfortunately, he’s living on American soil with permanent citizenship. And a lot of easily-incited followers.

Why O why do we let these people into OUR country. The government is so damned cetain to make EVERYBODY welcome and to heck with the citizens of this country. My folks came here in 1685 and to my knowledge we have never called for the death of Americans nor have we called for the destruction of the Country called America. The pols should all go home and listen to the real folks and not just listen to egg heads and cool aid drinkers.

They’re all nothing but a bunch of 7th century, murdering pigs.

I don’t know what it will take for Americans, ESPECIALLY Michiganders, to wake up to the ever-growing threat posed by Muslims. It certainly WON’T be thanks to the MSM, who, on a daily basis, tell us how WE must be “tolerant” of the “Religion of Peace” all in the name of “diversity”. Here’s some novel ideas:
1.) Muslims MUST respect America and its heritage as WE have EARNED it,
2.) IF anti-terror, anti-theocracy, anti-violence Muslims exist, they MUST make themselves known, speak out, and police their own or they TOO will be held accountable,
3.) Americans MUST stop being wimps and quit the neverending hand-wringing (lest any Muslims be offended) and warn Mohammed’s followers that we will NOT tolerate threats to America and its security, both real AND imagined,
4.) Americans should get off their lazy ‰sses and let Islamists know in no uncertain terms that we WILL eradicate them from our country if THEY do not conform to America’s version of tranquility and peaceful co-existance,
5.) The time IS coming when REAL Americans should take to the streets in full force and warn those barbaric heathens that while we welcome those who respect US, we WILL do some “cleansing” of our own in response to the threat to OUR society.
For 1,300 years now Muslims have been trying to conquer the West and impose their will and religion upon us. Militarily, they have been beaten back at every turn. Now, with the assistance of the MSM, they seek to undermine the West from within. Exactly the manner in which Communists believed their success resided – while puffing up their chests and own militaries at the same time. THEY (Communists) were whipped by ideas (carrots) with a strong military (sticks) providing back-up. We are about to run out of carrots.

One guy and one guy only, George W. Bush, the worst president in my lifetime.

Duke on January 4, 2007 at 10:36 am

Note that not one media outlet questioned the sight of a clergyman leading shouts of joy at someone’s hanging. Can you imagine if a rabbi or priest did the same thing?
If you’re an imam, I guess that’s cool!

PJ on January 4, 2007 at 12:21 pm

Rocketman you are right on–so how do we start the cleansing?

Yankee Doodle on January 4, 2007 at 1:39 pm

These guys are “murdering pigs” just as was stated by Bruno. Paul asks “Why do we let these people into our country?”. Some of the problem lies with guys like Duke who state “One guy and one guy only, George W. Bush, the worst president in my lifetime”.
When people put the blame on one person, they’re not being supportive of our government and they’re contributing to the negative sentiment of Anti-Americanism. Quit blaming Bush or Rumsfeld or Rice or whoever. Keep your mouth shut and DO YOUR PART TO HELP NOT DESTROY this country’s traditional spirit of unity. Blaming others for our own lack of contribution is ignorance in action.

LAMadDog on January 4, 2007 at 1:41 pm

Yankee Doodle said “How do we start the cleansing”
Isn’t frightening to think that Hitler probably asked himself the same question? You should be ashamed.

ConservativesLovePuns(descent) on January 4, 2007 at 2:03 pm

Although I think that the sentence was justified, I was mortified by the execution video. A bunch of screeching thugs with ski masks is what I saw. I couldn’t understand why the date kept changing. I also couldn’t understand how an appeal process could go so fast and be complete and fair.
Then, yesterday I heard Christopher Hitchens say on Laura Ingraham’s show that Sadr’s brigade is the group that took Hussein and executed him. Moreover, the trial was still going on regarding other massacres when he was taken. The Kurds and victims of other massacres will never have the chance to confront Hussein with the evidence of their cases. Only the Shia had their day in court, according to Hitchens.
This does not bode well for the Rule of Law in Iraq. And the fact that we have continually opened our gates to streams of people, who have no understanding of that concept, is frightening.

I will repeat again, again and again:
The only solution to save America and the West from islam and the muslims is:
1 – To deport all muslims,
2 – To never allow them to enter our land again,
3 – To demolish their mosques and
4 – To outlaw islam.
I’m telling you, we will reach that point one day.
Unfortunately, millions will have to be killed by islam and the muslims before the traitors in Washington D.C. stop playing with the fate of this country under the guise of political correctness.

Independent Conservative on January 4, 2007 at 3:31 pm

Hitler was not attacked by the Jews. We were attacked by Muslims. Jews have been largely law abiding with only a relatively few exceptions. Most of them have been lawyers, doctors, accountants, entertainers, merchants, jewelers, bankers, etc. Hitler and the Islamofascists have attacked the Jews first. Jews have largely been passive and peace-loving.
We share the morals and faith of the Jews. Islam is aggressive, violent, and seeks to impose its sharia fertilizer on the whole world. Jews did not seek to impose the Torah on the whole world or on any other people–at least since the second Temple period. On the other hand, to attempt to convince others of the rightness of one’s faith is just good old-fashioned freedom of speech.
Hitler and the Islamofascists do not believe in freedom of speech–or any other freedom–for that matter.
Any questions, CLP()?

Loser on January 4, 2007 at 7:13 pm

Baath Party, Which is in EVERY arab country, was started by a french/syrian who copied his method and based his party on Hitler’s. He even met with Hitler to try to work out a deal to kick out the brits and make crude oil available to the axis powers.

Tonto on January 4, 2007 at 8:58 pm

Rather than taking on the arduous and complicated task of rebutting every comment opposed to beating back Islam, I’ll just respond thusly:
1.) No more Muslim immigrants are allowed into America unless and until THEY rein in THEIR fellow religious adherents.
2.) Visitor visas for Muslims should be granted ONLY if the traveller agrees to have a GPS chip tremporarily imbedded in them. It will be removed when they depart the country.
3.) A moratorium on building any more mosques in America. The existing mosques will be monitored for violations of the law (“hate speech” and inciting violence) and political speech a vioolation of their tax-exempt status. Violators will lose their property and non-citizens will be deported.
4.) Free transportation to the Muslim country of their choosing shall await all who violate the law – any law.
5.) Veiled costumes will be strictly outlawed AND enforced.
6.) Violators who happen to be American born will be shipped off to Puerto Rico where they can establish their own country – once they whip the current populace of course. (chuckle)
Wake UP, people. This is a long and unprecedented war. The sooner that Americans get used to the fact that rules have changed, the better off we all will be.

Rocketman on January 7, 2007 at 12:40 pm

theres absolutely nothing wrong with what imam has done..and for those of you who think that the American government has got some problems..sort that out with them! dont go over attacking muslims.. Saddam was a tyrant who deserved what he got! ask those who lost so many loved ones at the hands of this merciless man.. why shouldnt one feel a sense of relief after his end? why is it wrong? figure ureselves out before you write such comments here!

Zahraa on January 12, 2007 at 11:22 am

The Dems are scumbags. Having this I’m-am-an-asshole “praying” at their Brown Shirt meeting is a major kick the balls of America. Robert Spenser of JihadWatch, a expert on the Islamo-F**ks says this of the “prayer”
Ö(T)he Imam is echoing the Fatiha, the first sura of the Qurían and most common prayer of Islam. It asks Allah: ìShow us the straight path, the path of those whom Thou hast favoured; not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.î The traditional Islamic understanding of this is that the ìstraight pathî is Islam ó cf. Islamic apologist John Espositoís book Islam: The Straight Path. The path of those who have earned Allahís anger are the Jews, and those who have gone astray are the Christians.ÖIt is interesting to see the Democrats standing with heads bowed piously while the Imam Husham Al-Husainy prays, in veiled terms to be sure, for their conversion to Islam, and oh yes, for the destruction of Israel (îAnd help us to stop the war and violence, and oppression and occupationî).
Well holy-akbar, aloeha Motherf**er. Americans can proceed to bend over and kiss thier asses goodbye. That is unless you elect Dhimitude and pay a tax for the rest of your worthless lives. You think Hitler/Stalin/Sadaam was bad?

auspatriotman on February 3, 2007 at 2:23 pm

What we have is tyranny in America today we our elitist Politicians selling our country down the river.
To LAMadDog
It is GWB that has left our border wide open to an invasion from Mexico and he is the one that gave the speech calling Islam a Religion of Peace.
Condi Rice transferred 7,000 assault rifles and more than 1 million rounds of ammunition to Fatah militias, including Force 17.They are run by hamas our enemy for Christ sakes.
It seems our own leaders are clueless if you ask me including GWB.

ScottyDog on February 3, 2007 at 10:52 pm

what i find a bit frightening is that it seems every Islamic cleric described as “mainstream” or “moderate” is in fact a radical loon who calls for the destruction of the Israel and the West… i’m beginning to believe that there are no moderate leaders out there in the Islamic world…

Release The Hounds! on February 7, 2007 at 12:50 pm

Look guys, you’re still not thinking it all through yet. The ONLY way to get rid of terrorism is to get rid of ALL the Muslims, every single one of them. I’ve read the filthy Koran (the unabridged version, not the propaganda version that has the offensive stuff removed, a huge percent BTW) and anyone who espouses that piece of manure should be considered a terrorist BY DEFAULT. We would have to KILL every single one of them and that includes the dhimmi that have been serving their agenda. Just evicting them means they’ll go somewhere else and take that country over. Eventually we’ll have them back again. Ferdinand and Isabella had it right in 1492 (except for evicting the Jews, keep them).
