Imam Abdul Alim Musa, of the Masjid al-Islam in Washington D.C. spoke at the infamous Jerusalem Day rally in October of 2000. In his speech, he said:
Musa: We celebrate our young brothers, that's right, we celebrate those shuhada [martyrs]. They are not dead. They say that we lose people by the hundreds. The Zionist, when they get hit they are dead. They are dead and gone and they are headed for gehenna [Hell] isn't that right? But our people when they leave this world they're headed for jinnah [Paradise].
