Jihad Summer Camp in Clinton, OH

From FrontPage Magazine, H/T Central Ohioans Against Terrorism blog:

ISNA’s Jihad Summer Camp
By Patrick Poole July 6, 2007

The deadline has already passed for you to submit an application to attend the Muslim Youth of North America’s Annual National Youth Training Program, operated by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which runs from June 30th through July 7th, that is if you are between the ages of 12-18.

The summer camp is being held at Camp-Y Noah of the YMCA of Akron in Clinton, Ohio, and features a number of well-known speakers. By “well-known” I mean controversial, not popular. In fact, the event’s speakers list reads like a “Who’s Who” of Islamic extremism.

Leading the list is ISNA Majlis Member, Jamal Badawi, who also sits on the board of the Canadian affiliate of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Both ISNA and CAIR were recently named by federal prosecutors as unindicted co-conspirators in a HAMAS terror financing trial currently underway in Texas (see my “CAIR Fingered by Feds”).

Badawi is also a close associate of Yousef Al-Qaradawi, who has been identified as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the US government and banned from entering the country. Qaradawi has issued fatwas authorizing suicide bombings in Israel and attacks against US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Badawi is currently listed as a member of the board of trustees of the International Union of Muslim Scholars and a member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research – two organizations organized and headed by Qaradawi. He also issues live fatwas for Qaradawi’s website.
I can see it now, in the Y's summer program catalog. Read the entire article here.
