Washington DC Imam: America Conducting “Global War On Islam,” Laments “Zionist-Controlled Media”
Press TV has conducted an interview with Abdul Alim Musa, Imam of Masjid al-Islam in Washington, to further discuss the issue. The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.Press TV: Iran’s leader says the US will do everything it can to stop Muslim groups. Given the fact that the US has heavily been investing in anti-Islam activities, be it films, be it anything, what is the future going to be like for Muslims?
Musa: What is the future for Muslims like here in the US and all around the world, first of all, the Rahbar [Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei] was right that this war on terror, we all know, is clearly a war on Islam and it is not a regional war; it is a global war.
The US and the UK who are losing their global power do not have power to do good in the world today. They only have power to do negative or evil. So therefore whether it is encouraging what we call are trying a lot of terror that is the American government when it is an invasion, when it is media; it is the Zionist-controlled media; when they want us to fight amongst themselves, they use Saudi Arabia.
For instance, many of the illegal troops who are going into Syria to kill innocent people and to destroy the whole country, they are there at the behest of Saudi Arabian wealth and position.
While inside the country in Qatif and while Bahrain is suffering, they have no words of freedom and justice. So this war on terror is really as we know a war on Islam. [...]
There is another issue. The Muslims themselves are very fearful right now. They have been frightened by this global war on Muslims, infiltration of the masajid [mosques], turning the Imam or the Imam Juma [Friday prayers] into a FBI collaborator which they cooperate with the FBI. This is happening a lot.
