Of Masters and Their Slaves

"It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master." ―Ayn Rand

San Jose's Dirty Little Secret for Hezbollah: SABA Academy

By Lee Kaplan, investigator, communications director, ACD fellow

With all the hue and cry about Islamophobia, here's a tale that goes unreported. Shia Association of Bay Area (also known as SABA Islamic Center/Saba Mosque/Saba Center) preaches that Jews and Christians are lacking in moral character and that their religions are corrupt.

The SABA Islamic Center boasts that its so-called academy instills in its students "a high moral character." But what do they mean by "high moral character?" Apparently it means considering Islam, and Shia Islam at that, as the only moral path.

Dr. Mazhar Khan of Morgan Hill, California

Last February (2011), Dr. Mazhar Khan, a senior Mosque members, began his sermon reading from the Hadiths. He prefaced his remarks by commenting that Jews today "do not practice their true religion," which lost its direction and the Jews descended into materialism. Now, translate that to mean the Jews began worshipping money and you have the vision of the money worshippin' Jew. This guy continued that "Christianity was supposed to correct what the Jews lost, but Christianity had no moral purpose behind it."

Get it? Christians are immoral unlike the Muslims. SABA Mosque Muslims of "high moral character." I guess the ten commandments (acutally over 300) contained no moral precepts for Jews or Christians like the concept of jihad. In any case, the next time you hear the whine about "Islamophobia," understand there really is something to fear and worry about when it comes to what's going on inside a mosque like the one SABA runs in San Jose. Right now, the Mosque is also trying to get the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to reverse the refusal to allow SABA's religious leader, Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a Nabi Raza Abidi), back into the US because of suspected links to Hezbollah. You know Hezbollah, that group of high moral character who murdered 241 US marines in 1983 in Lebanon on a peace mission?

I'll discuss the SABA Mosque's imam in coming the weeks. "High moral character," my ass...

Shia Association of Bay Area (also known as SABA Islamic Center, Saba Center, and Saba Mosque) is the pro-Iranian regime, pro-Hezbollah, Khomeinist, Judeophobic organization based in San Jose, California. The SABA Islamic Center is located at 4415 Fortran Ct., San Jose, California 95134.

The top dogs at Saba Center are Sajjad Mir and Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi). The former is the Chairman of the controversial organization while the latter is its embattled and embittered in-house mullah. Indeed, Nabi R. Mir is unwanted in this country by the United States Government, specifically, the Department of Justice (DoJ).

According to several sources, numerous members of SABA have been questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Indeed, multiple people affiliated with SABA, such as Hassan Jammal and Mojtaba Beheshti, have been deported from the United States. Rafic Labboun, an imam at SABA Islamic Center, was convicted of credit card fraud by a Federal Grand Jury and sent to prison at the Lompoc Federal Correctional Institution (FCI).
