You all remember Walid Fitaihi, the Saudi Arabian gentleman who was one of the prime movers behind the Islamic Society of Boston's Mosque project, and one of the original trustees? Remember the story? You know, he once wrote:
â€œThus, the Muslim community in the U.S. in general, and in Boston in particular, has begun to trouble the Zionist lobby. The words of the Koran [3:113] on this matter are true: â€˜They will be humiliated wherever they are found, unless they are protected under a covenant with Allah, or a covenant with another people. They have incurred Allahâ€™s wrath and they have been afflicted with misery. That is because they continuously rejected the Signs of Allah and were after slaying the Prophets without just cause, and this resulted from their disobedience and their habit of transgression.â€™â€
â€œThe great Allah spoke words of truth. Their covenant with America is the strongest possible in the U.S., but it is weaker than they think, and one day their covenant with the [American] people will be cut off."
He also â€œwrote that Jews will be â€˜scourgedâ€™ because of their â€˜oppression, murder, and rape of the worshipers of Allah.â€™â€ (according to the ADL)
He was "disappeared" for a time, resigned from the ISB's board of trustees and skedaddled back to The Kingdom just before, and I mean just before he was to be deposed as a party in the ISB's massive lawsuit.
Well what do you know? The lawsuit is over and Walid Fitaihi (Fitahi) has been re-inserted (and I do mean inserted) into the ISB's board. Funny thing, that! That's right, he's baaaack...
Personally, I question the timing.
Update 8/30: Miss Kelly has a detailed timeline of the entire Fitaihi saga.
