Don't ignore Webb's bigotry
by Charles Jacobs
The lengthy profile of Imam Suhaib Webb, "Show of faith " [Washington Post Magazine, Jan. 22], dismissed my organization's legitimate criticisms of Webb and his former Boston mosque's extremism. The article noted we "allege" Webb was anti-Semitic and homophobic but dismissed our research without further consideration.
We do not merely "allege" Webb's bigotry. We have proved it. Videos of sermons we uncovered show Webb preaching that "effeminate" men are "cursed" and that he "understands" Muslims who "have animosity" toward "the Jews."
In 2001, according to FBI surveillance documents, Webb appeared alongside al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki to raise £$100,000 for Jamil Abdullah al-Amin, who was convicted of shooting two U.S. police officers and killing one of them.
