Elsayed: Suicide Bombers are In-House Business
Chicago, IL

Palestinian Terror

At a joint conference sponsored by the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) in Chicago in December 2002, Shaker El-Sayed, imam of the terror-tied Dar al Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia justified suicide bombings:

El-Sayed (Arabic): And about the subject unfairly named suicide bombers, homicide bombers, or murderers, or killers. Our answer to this issue is simple. To decide that this man is a martyr or not a martyr, it is a pure religious matter. Nobody who is not Muslim has any right to decide for us, we the Muslims, whose is a martyr or another. We as Muslims will decide that. It is in-house business.


The Islamic scholars said if there is an attack on the land of Islam or they occupy the land of Islam, or the honor of the Muslims has been violated, the Jihad is a must on every man, every child and every woman, [They have to make Jihad] with every tool that they can get in their hand. Anything that they can get in their hand they should fight with it. And if they don't have a weapon in their hands, then [they will fight] unarmed.[1]
