An Islamic center in New England is pushing the Iranian regime message in America.
The Islamic Masumeen Center of New England is a Shiite non-profit organization in Hopkinton, Massachusetts that has held multiple events with sheikhs who are supporters of the Iranian regime and Hezbollah.
The centerâ€™s maulana (religious scholar), Agha Mehdi, studied in Qom, Iran.
A quick look at the photos from the Masumeen Centerâ€™s Facebook page shows that known supporters of the Iranian regime â€“ including Syed Abbas, Hamza Sodaga and Usama Abdulghani — have attended the center’s functions.
- Abbas is a supporter of Iranâ€™s first Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini as well as its current leader, Ali Khameini.
- Sodagar gained major notoriety for suggesting that gays should be beheaded or burned alive. In addition, in a recent lecture in the state of Washington state, he expressed his desire for Israel to be destroyed.
- Abdulghani has been even more open about his extremism views, praising Hezbollahâ€™s leader, Hassan Nasrallah: â€œSo, brothers and sisters when times are toughâ€”when you see that you donâ€™t know where truth is, everybodyâ€™s talkingâ€”just remember the words of the man who was more old school than any of us. Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah, may Allah protect and preserve him â€¦ and all our leaders, especially the leader, Sayyid Ali Khamenei.â€
While Masumeen could be supporting the Iranian people who want freedom from the oppression of the ayatollahs, Masumeen is instead giving a voice to those who help push the message of the Iranian regime in America.
