Missouri Mosque that Wanted to Ban Insults to Islam’s Now Doing Something Just as Controversial


Wanna-be ISIS jihadists Nadir Soofi and Elton Simpson were gunned down this past Sunday during a failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas.

While the whereabouts of Simpson’s remains are unknown, Soofi’s body was reportedly transferred to a mosque in Kansas City, Missouri:

The mosque in question, the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City (ISGKC), has expressed a wish to ban all insults against Islam:

Pajamas Media’s Patrick Poole revealed a controversial petition initiated by ISGKC after the release of the YouTube video, “Innocence of Muslims,” which sparked global protests from the Islamic community:

As I reported at PJ Media back in September 2012, ISGKC launched an online petition calling for Barack Obama to sponsor a bill limiting the free speech of American citizens by criminalizing insults to religion (namely, Islam) following international protest of the “Innocence of Muslims” video.

The petition, which was signed by the ISGKC executive board and posted on the mosque’s website, received 348 signatures. One of the mosque board members defended the petition in an interview with the local media following our PJ Media report:

“Insulting somebody else or putting somebody down can insight violence and lead to people losing their lives. We’re trying not to give these people a chance to misbehave,” said Mohammed Kohia, who started the petition along with the executive board of the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City.

And in 2010, one of the ISGKC’s worshipers, Khalid Ouazzani, admitted to sending $23,500 to Al-Qaeda.
