Ill. State Police Fire Muslim Chaplin Over Terror Ties

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Illinois State Police has revoked the appointment of its first Muslim chaplain. The State Police claim that “information revealed during the background investigation” led to their decision but they haven’t elaborated on what information that might have been.

Chicago imam Kifah Mustapha was appointed by the ISP in December of 2009.

Mustapha has been linked to the radical Muslim Brotherhood by The Investigative Project on Terrorism, a Washington DC-based think tank founded by Steven Emerson in 1995.

Mustapha’s name appears on a list of unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Hamas financing trial, which ended with sweeping convictions in November of 2008. On this list he is identified as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. According to the indictment in the HLF trial, the “Muslim Brotherhood is an international Islamic fundamentalist organization” that is “committed to the globalization of Islam through social engineering and violent jihad.” It created the Palestine Committee with a “designed purpose to support HAMAS” politically and financially.

Mustapha has never been charged, but like many of his brethren he has been up to his neck in supporting terrorists like the Muslim Brotherhood and other such illicit organizations.

After an initial bad choice, the Illinois State Police ended up doing the right thing by dumping this one.
