Muslim Leader Urges All To Visit Newark Mosque, Says It’s ‘As American As Apple Pie’

NEWARK, NJ (CBSNewYork) – After a New Jersey mosque used its NYPD surveillance controversy to recruit new members through a newspaper ad, Imam Mustafa El-Amin of Masjid Ibrahim in Newark says that all are welcome for Friday’s prayer service.

“Our doors are open,” El-Amin told WCBS 880’s Levon Putney, “and we have nothing to hide.”

El-Amin says that his mosque is as American as apple pie, and says that he has no problem with the NYPD or any police surveillance, especially post-September 11th.

“But when you’re doing it in a secret way,” El-Amin explained, “then it suggests a lack of trust.”

So in an effort to gain people’s trust, the mosque’s leader put out an ad in the Star-Ledger, inviting folks to read the Quran and come by and visit the mosque.

“We are about serving the community, and we are people of faith as American citizens,” he concluded.

El-Amin says that his people not only don’t support terrorists, but “condemn terrorism 100 percent.”

    !s1am: It’s a Disease in need of a Cure.

    FACT: Everywhere where there are M U S L I M E S, sh-!t happens.

    China — sh-!t happens
    (suicide b0 mbers that kill little children and run amok with metal pipes in the streets)

    India — sh-!t happens
    (M U S L I M E S burned 100s of Hindus alive in packed trains and burned villagers alive while they slept)

    Middle East — sh-!t happens
    (suicide b0 mbers that kill little children)

    Russia — sh-!t happens
    (suicide b0 mbers that kill women and children in crowded theaters)

    South East Asia — sh-!t happens
    (M U S L I M E thugs who kidnap teachers, school children, nurses, priests for ransom, than murder them all)

    Europe — sh-!t happens
    (suicide b0 mbers that kill little children)

    USA — 9 / 11 happened

    Notice the pattern here? Even you sanctimonious twits can’t be that dense.

    Goes to reason, no M U S L I M E S, no sh-!t.
    All these camel turds understand is violence and lies anyway. I say we oblige them by killing them all and then lie about how sorry we are.

    !s1am. It’s a disease. And like any other infestations of boils, pox and pestilence, it should be eradicated. You don’t talk to diseases. You eradicate them like you did polio and small pox.

    And some bleeding heart imbecile here will write that it’s just a few “radical” individuals that are murderous, just like any other society. But then conveniently forgetting about the Fact that it happens worldwide and by a LOT MORE than just a few individuals. And they also continues to blank out of their empty heads the worldwide M U S L I M E jubilee celebrations as people burned on 9 / 11.

    I don’t think so. To say this is to defile the Christian values on which this nation was founded.
    Educate yourselves

    I already know that islam is the attemp by mohammed to incorporate both Jewish and Christian Biblical Truth to stop ismael’s descendants from killing each other. Were it not for the Torah and the New Testament, the qu’ran would be no more than a book of myths.
    Besides, the GOD I Serve, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel had a SON. allah could only make daughters.

      So you like to read fiction?

        Oh Mike, with people like you, who needs to fear islamic takeover? The ‘new liberal unholy’ american is the worst enemy we have! Godless and atheistic in thinking, all standards and laws become challenges for the perversion of thier minds.
        Thanks for weakening America….

    have you even read your unholy karan? this book says kill anyone that’s not Muslim among other evil things. i find it hard to believe it’s even called religion.

    more like a cult of hate. people want to find a true faith don’t believe what these guys are selling, do some research on their treatment of women, shariah law and hatred of non Muslims and form your own opinion. plenty on youtube and www for you to form your own opinion.

      Can you cite that passage, please?

      1. tfoxx says:

        Sura 9:5

        “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word “mujahada”, signifying warfare to establish the religion.
