On December 16, 2012, an event was held at Masjid al-Islam titled, â€œGlobal Strategy for Islam.â€ The advertisement said, â€œWe do not call you to any kind of physical or military confrontation in America; we only ask that you stand up for justice and fair play.â€ However, it included numerous Islamic verses about fighting. As-Sabiqun has endorsed foreign terrorist groups like Hamas.
Masjid al-Islamâ€™s imam is Amir Abdul Malik Ali. In May 2010, he spoke at the University of California-Irvine and said he supports Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. He also said that Zionists are the â€œnew Nazisâ€ and they should not be engaged with dialogue. In 2008, he said an â€œIslamic revivalâ€ that includes Hamas and Hezbollah will achieve the â€œdeath of Zionismâ€ and end of the â€œAmerican empire.â€ Â In 2007, he said that â€œHamas are freedom fighters, not terrorists.â€
In December 2001, Malik Ali reacted to a video of Osama Bin Laden praising the 9/11 attacks by saying he was inspired to â€œsee Muslims around the world who are willing to stand up to the oppressive, imperialist system of the United States.â€ He said that â€œthis tape is not evidenceâ€ and accused the U.S. of trying to find justification to wage war in Afghanistan.
