This is a pattern. Muslim holy men lying to cover for jihad slaughter. This is why mosques tied to Islamic terror must be monitored.
The California Imam in the San Bernardino jihad lied about Farook.
The Phoenix imam in the Garland, Texas shooting lied about the Texas jihadis.
The Boston imam lied about the Muslim Marathon bombers.
The Oklahoma imam lied about the devout Muslim attendee who beheaded co-worker Colleen Hufford.
And on and on an on.
Muslim clerics are following the ISIS handbook on deceiving the West to advance and impose Islam.
The would-be cop-murderer said that police “defend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Koran.” Where did he learn that? At mosque and in the quran.
While first telling the media that he had no idea who the shooter was, it was later revealed they were personal friends and that the Islamic radical was a regular at his mosque.
Additionally, Imam Rashid “lied” about the shooter’s association with the mosque, an anonymous tipster testified to police in warning of a larger terror plot.
On Thursday, Edward Archer, 30, walked up to the patrol vehicle of officer Jesse Hartnett and fired 13 rounds at him within close range in an attempted assassination. Dressed in Islamic garb, Archer was unable to kill Hartnett, who heroically disabled the Islamic extremist when he returned fire following the assault. After being taken into custody, Archer said he carried out the act in the name of Islam and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, according to the police commissioner.
After the terror attack, Asim Abdur Rashid, the Imam of the mosque attended by the jihadi, “said he did not know Archer and was not aware if he had ever prayed there,” according to a Reuters report.
But in the past day, his tone has changed strikingly.
Imam Rashid now admits that Archer “regularly” attended morning, evening, and even midday prayers at his mosque, the Masjid Mujahideen. Mujahideen is plural for mujahid, the term used to describe a holy warrior who is engaged in jihad for Islam.
This is all a misunderstanding, Rashid now claims, saying he only knew Archer by his Muslim name.
“I know him as Abdul Shaheed… We don’t call each other by the names we had before we converted to Islam,” Rashid said, claiming he did not recognize Archer, though he was a frequent attendee of the mosque and they had a personal relationship.
“He was intelligence [sic], and he was a regular dude,” Rashid told Reuters on Sunday.
But another member of the mosque claims the opposite.
“He became more drastic. More combative,” commented Jannah Abdulsalaam. “He was kind but I noticed that change.” Read More
