New Trend has studied ISNA for more than 20 years; hence not much
that ISNA leaders do surprise New Trend's analysts. New Trend had a
reasonably good idea about what was going to happen at the 2002 ISNA
Convention held in Washington, DC and hence wanted to ignore it.
some of our readers want at least some reporting on it to help the new
of sincere Muslims who often are so pleased to see a crowd of Muslims
that they do not want to look at the leadership's antics carefully.
EPISODE GIVES FLAVOR OF HOW ISLAMIC IS ISNA
Some of our sisters visited ISNA's Convention on August 31 and
September 1. They managed to distribute several hundred copies of New
Trend without attracting the "vigilant" ISNA Security. The sisters were
astonished to see that ISNA had a booth for the FBI recruiting Muslims.
At the FBI booth there were two young Muslims. Our sister asked
one of them why was he there. He replied that he was just sitting at the
doing nothing. She asked him if he had any idea why it was wrong for an
booth to be in an Islamic convention and secondly for this young man to
be sitting there. The young man had ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA THAT ANYTHING WAS
WRONG WITH IT.
[That episode gives some flavor of the new generation of Muslims
produced by ISNA. They are politically airheads.]
The sister then asked the young man if he had read a book titled
MALCOLM X:THE FBI FILE. Of course he had not. She urged him to find and
read the book.
How low ISNA was in Islamic content can be guaged from the fact that a
Jew, Avram Goldstein, writing for a
The Washington Post,
a long, rambling, laudatory article about the Convention without a word
criticism. He praised Syed Sayeed, who has spent more than 20 years in
pay of ISNA, and Salam Al-Maryati. Here is something which Goldstein
noted with satisfaction:
"The FBI and the Army posted officers to recruit
translators" at the convention.
WHAT ABOUT PALESTINE? Even decent Christians and Jews support the
people. ISNA was trembling so much with worship of its masters that
issue of Palestine was ignored. Islamic Association of Palestine
reports as follows about the Palestinian content of this "Islamic"
"ISNA convention fails to mention Palestine!!!!! Comments by Tarek
September 3, 2002 The Islamic Society of North America held its 39th
annual convention in Washington DC between August 30th- Sept 2nd.
Throughout their busy program, only 1.5 hours was dedicated for the
palestinian cause. The total minutes of the program were 8285 minutes.
Thus Palestine received 90/8285 = 0.01 (1%) of the program. You can
visit their website at www.isna.net and check the program.
It is very sad that Muslims in America fail to discuss one of the most
just causes in human history.
One reason why we need to talk, discuss, and educate ourselves and
youth and children about Palestine is because the American public
is genuinely interested in knowing the other point of view. When we
fail to educate ourselves about Palestine we create a religious,
political, and historical vacuum that the Israelis will be glad to
fill. It is not for the sake of the Palestinians that we MUST
discuss the cause of Palestine, but for the sake of ourselves. I
know some will not like what I mentioned, but we should always
remember that the Jews continued to remind themselves about Jerusalem
for centuries. If we fail to remind ourselves about Palestine, then
Allah will indeed bring about other Muslims that will not fail to do
[Obviously the writer is a friend of ISNA who had some expectations of
Islamically dead organization. He did not notice that renegades like
Yusuf spoke at the ISNA Convention. In fact Hamza Yusuf spoke to take
the loyalty of ISNA people from Allah and His messenger, pbuh, and to
faith in America. He is reported to have said that Muslims should not
a fifth column in America. In other words, if you follow Qur'an and
instead of Bush, you are a traitor!]
APOSTACY IN FULL HIJAB!
One of our writers ran into the ISNA convention while visiting someone.
She also listened to ISNA on
radio. Here are some comments from her:
the hotel and for several blocks around looked like a Muslim
country--there were Muslims all over the place, of every size,
color. Suddenly I realized that this was the ISNA convention.
out of curiosity, been listening to some of its amorphous,
on C-SPAN radio on the way down, but hadn't realized that it
there. In actuality, I believe it is quite important to attend
events, if only for the cultural and social aspect, regardless
apathy, amorality, or uninformed quality of presenters.
On the way back, I
another couple hours of broadcasts from the ISNA convention (I
patience of a surgeon), and was amazed at the range of
jihad--everything from "being kind to others" to "doing the
thing" and off course our darling fabricated hadith version of
jihad: internal cleansing, almost like, uh, attaining nirvana
wrong faith). Apostasy in perfect hijab! A few blocks away,
in the White House must have been grinning from ear to ear."
