Abdullah Faaruuq, a Muslim "spiritual advisor" and chaplain from Boston-based Northeastern University, was a key speaker at a fundraiser for al Qaeda's Ma Barker, the criminal female terrorist named Aafia Siddiqui, also known as "Lady al Qaeda." This man, Faaruuq, is living off American taxpayers yet advocates for his followers to use "the gun and the sword" to advance Islam in America.
The fundraiser for Siddiqui was held at the Islamic Center of Worcester, Mass. on Dec. 8 with the stated goal of raising $30,000 to assist this female terrorist convicted in 2008 of attempting to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan.
As Steve Emerson of Family Security Matters reports, Abdullah gave Siddiqui high praise.
"What a brave woman she continues to be, and how much her bravery and her faith and her belief warrants our support at this time," said Faaruuq, an imam at Roxbury's Mosque for the Praising of Allah. "It is said that we're trying to raise $30,000 tonight. I would say it's better that we've raised your awareness and raised your ire, as your anger against a government who would level the charges that they have against this woman and they say she is guilty. I would say she's only guilty of defending herself."
In addition to lauding Siddiqui's "bravery," Faaruuq also condemned American soldiers, the very people who defend America, as "kafirs," meaning infidels.
"And if my mother was in the same place," he said, "she would have took (sic) her West Indian machete and cut her way through those kafirs."
According to the Northeastern University website, "Imam Abdullah serves as Northeastern University's Muslim chaplain, as well as spiritual advisor to the Islamic Society student group." Sadly he is advising students at a public university in the ways of violent jihad. And our taxes go to fund his actions.
Imam Abdullah has for some time been a controversial figure. As part of a violence-advocating, jihad-pushing, terror-funding mosque that was helped to come to fruition by public officials and politicians in Massachusetts, Abdullah has been advocating violence against Americans for years.
No wonder radical Islamists think America is the "weak horse" in the world. We are with our own taxes funding our own home-grown terror supporters like Abdullah.
