Have you heard of the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BMIA)(or the Bureau of “Disingenuous Muslim Affairs,”)? It was founded less than a year before the first World Trade Center Attack in 1993 when Muslim terrorists killed 6 and injured more than 1,000 persons. Native Americans in this country are a bit ticked off – enough to vote Republican for the first time in their lives…maybe. How does such a clearly inauthentic organization receive 501(3)(c) status, and remember this goes all the way back to 1992. According to Breitbart, the DNC sanctioned the BIMA event at the Democratic Convention, and according to The Center for Western Journalism, Native Americans are “very angry.”
Native Americans are very angry to learn that Muslims in the United States of America are being touted as “indigenous”, a complete falsehood…
Twenty-thousand Islamists and their sympathizers are expected to attend the opening of the Democratic National Convention on August 31 to focus on Islam with Jumah[sic], the Friday prayer, to draw in Muslims to the DNC. The important prayer and two days of events are being coordinated by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), a national Muslim non-profit claiming that the event is non-political. Being a part of the actual convention makes it pretty hard to claim that it isn’t a political event. Source: Miki Booth, The Western Center for Journalism
Ms. Booth lives in Oklahoma, as do I, and has connections to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The BIMA has a mission statement, incomplete as we know, because they we infidels still exist:
THE BUREAU OF INDEGENOUS MUSLIM AFFAIRS (BIMA) IS A NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION SEEKING STATUS WITH THE UNITED NATIONS AS A NON GOVERMENTAL ORGANIZATION (NGO). BIMA WAS FOUNDED IN 1992 BY THE LATE HAJJ HESHAAM JAABER. THE OBJECTIVE OF BIMA IS TO PROVIDE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO INDIGENOUS MUSLIMS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
It’s the BIMA doing the screaming in all caps, not me (see the homepage here with The Charlotte Observer prominently touted.) The home page url is “muslimbureau.com,” wisely leaving out any claims of indigenousness.
Ibrahim Jaaber, son of BIMA Executive Director Muhammad Jaaber, told Breitbart News the DNC “reached out” to the Muslim organization and invited it to hold a two-hour prayer service as one of the officially sanctioned pre-convention events beginning Friday, August 31. In addition to the “Jumah” event, BIMA hosted the DNC/Charlotte in 2012 officially sanctioned “Islamic Regal Dinner” later that night. The convention itself kicks off on Monday, September 3. …
Ibrahim Jaaber is a 2007 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania where he was an All-Ivy League basketball player. He told Breitbart News that his role in his father’s BIMA organization is to provide media management services. Two months ago he purchased the “muslimbureau.com” domain name, which BIMA uses for its website. Prior to that time, BIMA had no web presence. Source: Read more at Breitbart
The joke is that a number of leaders of Islamic organizations (all of whom publicly opposed the King hearings on Muslim radicalization) were about to be indicted on terror finance support charges by the U.S. attorney’s office in Dallas, which had been investigating the case for most of the past decade.
But those indictments were scuttled last year at the direction of top-level political appointees within the Department of Justice (DOJ) — and possibly even the White House. Read more at Atlas Shrugs
More on Siraj Wahhaj:
Wahhaj claims to have completed his training as a cleric at Umm al Qura University in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in 1978. But that university was notestablished until 1981. Prior to that time, it was known as The Colleges of Shari’ah and Education and was a branch of the Jeddah-based King Abdul Aziz University, which was renowned as a hub for young radical terrorists. Indeed, Osama bin Laden, Sheikh Abdullah Azzam, and Wael Jalaidan—all co-founders of al Qaeda—were affiliated with King Abdul Aziz University in the 1970s and early ’80s.
In 1981 Wahhaj founded his own mosque, known as Masjid Al-Taqwa, which initially had a membership of fewer than 25 people and was based inside a friend’s Brooklyn apartment. Today, however, Wahhaj’s large Al-Taqwa mosque is recognized by Muslims all around the world…
In a 1992 sermon, Wahhaj emphasized the importance of jihad to his Al-Taqwa mosque congregation: “I will never ever tell people, ‘don’t be violent, that is not the Islamic way.’ The violence has to be selected…. Islam is the only answer because it is only Islam that we do it for Allah…. [We are] commanded to do jihad…. [W]hen Allah commands us to fight we are not stopping, no one will stop us.”
In an autumn 1992 address to an Islamic gathering in New Jersey, Wahhaj expressed his desire to have Muslims seize control of the United States and replace the country’s constitutional government with an Islamic caliphate. “If we were united and strong,” Wahhaj said, “we’d elect our own emir [leader] and give allegiance to him…. [T]ake my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.” Source: Discover the Networks
Siraj Wahhaj has defended the convicted WTC bomb plotters, called the FBI and CIA the “real terrorists,” and said he hopes all Americans eventually become Muslim.
He was among religious and civic leaders who met with Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to discuss the deadly Fort Hood shooting spree.
Wahhaj was one of 170 people identified in 1995 as unindicted co-conspirators in the attack two years earlier. He has denied any involvement.
The Muslim gathering (jumah) with Siraj Wahhaaj leading prayer was to begin on Friday, August 31st in Charlotte. Atlas Shrugs quotes the Charlotte Observer saying the “gathering” was disappointing as only about 300 of the thousands expected showed up. She links to the Observer page but the link is broken.

Ironic that Arabs refuse to acknowledge indigeneous Jews in the Holy Land, but have the nerve to claim it for themselves here. Once more with feeling: how does such a clearly inauthentic organization receive 501(3)(c) status?
