How the Terrorists Get In
By Steven A. Camarota
In the aftermath of September 11, a host of federal agencies have come under intense scrutiny.
The Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Central Intelligence Agency have all been charged with responsibility for failures leading up to the attacks. In each case, the culture within the agency, as well as its mission, policies, and procedures, has been examined in a variety of public forums.
The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) has also been excoriated for several spectacular gaffs - most infamously, for sending notification to a Florida flight school that two of the hijackers had been approved as students six months after their deaths. But there has been no comparable effort to examine the failures of our immigration system.
For example, all of the September 11 hijackers were issued visas, but there have been no extensive congressional hearings or investigations by the General Accounting Office or the Office of the Inspector General to determine whether the State Department, which issued the visas, erred in any way.
Probably the most infamous person to be mistakenly issued a visa is Egypt-born Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman. Although on the watch list, Rahman was issued a tourist visa because consular employees in Khartoum, Sudan, did not properly check the list.
And now, Amro Khalid gets a visa to the US
Here are very few quotes from Amro's official website:
1- This is followed by the ayah with the clear, broad command that excludes no one where Allah (SWT) says what can be translated as, “March out, light and heavy! And strive with your riches and yourselves in the way of Allah” (TMQ, 9:41). In order for the disbelievers to turn on their heels and repent, we need to fight them. Thus, the Muslims’ struggle against them is an aid for them to repent, and head back to Allah's way. Consequently, the Muslims’ failure to fight is a reason for the disbelievers to stay astray
2- The fourth section deals with the legislation of fighting in the way of Allah and rules of Jihad. Allah says what can be translated as, “And fight in the way of Allah the ones who fight you, but do not transgress; surely Allah does not love the transgressors. And kill them wherever you catch them, and drive them out from where they drove you out…” (TMQ 2:190 - 191). The ayahs emphasize the inevitability of Jihad to preserve Allah’s methodology and stress on the necessity of spending money on Jihad (i.e. in the cause of Allah) “ And expend in the way of Allah; and do not cast (yourselves) by your (own) hands into perdition (i.e., by neglecting to expend in the way of Allah, ), (TMQ 2:195).
This methodology requires fighting (in the way of Allah) in order to protect Islam from its enemies and foes who hinder its progress
3- Obedience in Jihad (fighting for the sake of Allah) The Surah is called the Surah of fighting because the word ‘fighting’ is abundantly mentioned in it. Fighting is one of the most difficult commands to be obeyed. Hence, it seems as if the Surah is stressing that Jihad for the sake of Allah (SWT) is a true testimony to the sincere following of Prophet Muhammad (SAWS).
