Imam ShaykhYusuf Badat told Ceeb radio host Matt Galloway this morning that he's most concerned about the "radicalization" of local Muslim lads who take it into their heads to run off and fight with ISIS. (You can listen to their conversation here.) Badat, who's imam of the Islamic Foundation of Toronto and who serves as veep of the Canadian Council of Imams, claims that the problem is that the radicalization occurs when certain verses of the Koran are--stop me if you've heard this before (and I'm sure you have)--"taken out of context."
Badat didn't specify which verses he means, but we can be fairly certain that they include the ones Robert Spencer highlights here.
Galloway, being a typical Ceeb know-nothing, failed to challenge Badat on two sore points. First, that during this year's "Doors Open" event, Badat's Islamic Foundation displayed material calling for jihad. Second, that the Canadian Council of Imams has, yes, condemned ISIS for its violence. But it has also denounced the neo-caliphate because--and this is critical to understanding the CCI mindset--ISIS has flouted sharia law pertaining to dhimmitude.
Gee, do you think the young'uns who have heeded jihad's siren call think Badat is as big a hypocrite as I do? And isn't this hypocrisy a huge part of the problem?
