Interesting background this gal Noelle Valentzas, who was recently arrested in New York for supporting terror, has. Her husband, a guy named Abu Bakr says he is shocked at her arrest. Yet, we have photos of him in the 2007 New York Muslim Day parade holding the black flag of Jihad. Now it is revealed that Valentzas herself has spoken in front of the Islamic Circle of North America.
I have had my own encounter with ICNA, which is nothing more than an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. Back in February 2011 in Yorba Linda, California, ICNA hosted a charity dinner in which the two featured speakers were Amir Abdel Malik Ali and Siraj Wahhaj, two imams who have a very low opinion of America, Israel and other things that most of us hold dear. Wahhaj has called America, "a filthy garbage can" and talked of a Muslim takeover of the country. Ali, a regular on the University of California anti-Israel lecture circuit, loves to accuse people of being "Zionist Jews" even if they aren't really Jews. He is an admitted supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah and would be offended if you called him a moderate.
Anyway, when it was learned that ICNA was bringing these two characters into Yorba Linda, the community was not happy. Members of the community called a meeting with sponsors and asked them to consider other speakers due to their track record of incendiary statements. That was when a certain Shakeel Syed, who was the chief representative, angrily shook his finger at the lady making the request and told her that they would invite whatever speaker they wished because it was their right. So they held the event, and we held our own protest. Syed is currently the executive director of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.
In short, ICNA is a suspect organization.
