Islamic University of Minnesota a Hotbed of Extremism
by John Rossomando
The Minneapolis-based Islamic University of Minnesota (IUM) has an extremism problem.
It is run by a man who used a recent sermon to invoke a Hadith commonly espoused by Muslim terrorists to kill Jews for causing "corruption in the land." Waleed Idris al-Meneesey also has written that Muslims should place sharia law above "man-made" law.
During a November sermon, al-Meneesy referred to the Hadith, a saying from Islam's prophet Muhammad, describing how Jews had been punished by God repeatedly for "corruption."
"When the Children of Israel returned to cause corruption in the time of our Prophet Muhammad," al-Meneesy said in a translation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, "and they disbelieved him, God destroyed him at his hand. In any case, God Almighty has promised them destruction whenever they cause corruption."
