Pentagon’s Desert Storm Imam Expelled From Bangladesh For Extremist Views

Posted By Patrick Poole On June 22, 2014 @ 12:14 pm In Politics | 3 Comments


Internationally-renowned hate preacher Bilal Philips has added Bangladesh to the countries he has been banned from according to local media (HT: Tarek Fatah):


A prominent Jamaican-born Salafi scholar has been forced to leave Bangladesh for his alleged “extremist” views.

Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips left Dhaka last Wednesday after the Bangladeshi intelligence services requested him to leave the country.

Sharif Abu Hayat Apu, who is the manager of a sister company of Islamic Online University, a global educational institute founded by Dr Bilal Philips, confirmed the cleric’s forced departure.

Philips has been refused entry to the US, Britain, Australia, Germany and Kenya for his “extremist” views. The scholar has been accused of encouraging youths to go on jihad and justifying suicide bombings, claims which he strongly denies.

This would be otherwise unremarkable except for the fact that Bilal Philips was called upon to evangelize US troops in Saudi Arabia with the permission of the Pentagon during Desert Storm.

As author J.M. Berger notes in his book, “Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam,” Philips operated under the auspices of the Royal Saudi Air Force and would later utilize his network of US military Muslim converts in the cause of jihad in Bosnia. In 1995, he was named unindicted co-conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing trial.

In this Youtube video, “Da’wah in Desert Storm,” Bilal Philips talks about his evangelization efforts among American troops.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
