May 7, 2010Failed New York car bombing by Pakistani-American should serve as a wake-up call
MCC urges Obama Administration to distance itself from
Islamists promoting doctrine of 'armed jihad' and Sharia Law
The MCC believes that unless
the doctrine of “Armed Jihad” or “Lesser Jihad” as promoted by the Egyptian
Muslim Brotherhood and the Pakistani Jamaat-e-Islami is declared as inapplicable
in the 21st century, ritualistic condemnations of terrorism and violence in the
name of Islam are not worth the paper they are written on. The MCC believes it
is of utmost importance to acknowledge that both the Jamaat-e-Islami and Muslim
Brotherhood have a large number of associates operating openly in the USA and
Canada and they provide fertile soil for terrorists like the New York car
bomber, the Toronto-18 and the Ottawa Digi-bomber to flourish and find
intellectual and ideological sustenance.
The continued presence of these Islamist
supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood inside the White House will only serve to
encourage Jihadi-extremists in their continued terrorist activities. The US
Administration must take into consideration that Pakistan's "Security
establishment"-- the military and judiciary-- is still protecting its Taliban
assets and their various Jihadi affiliates. It is no surprise that the accused
New York bomber is the son of a retired Vice Marshall of the Pakistan Air force.
In Toronto, Sohail Raza, president MCC at (416) 505-1613
MCC grieves the loss of our sons and daughters in Afghanistan, who died serving Canada in the line of duty. We offer our condolences to the families of the dead soldiers and hope to see all our troops back home safely.
