Abdirizak Bihi at King Hearings
Abdirizak Bihi at King Hearings: "Extremists such as Hamas-linked CAIR and other Islamic organizations are 'kidnapping' our children" ... "We don't have a voice"
Abdirizak Bihi, Director of Somali Education and Social Advocacy Center, rails against Islamic supremacist organizations such as Hamas-linked CAIR and other Islamic organizations who have bullied, harassed and silenced moderate Muslims, saying that "we have no voice." Muslims who are not supremacists or extreme are systemically victimized by these supremacist groups (hat tip - Pamela Geller).
Pamela Geller notes that Abdirizak Bihi is the uncle of Burhan Hassan, 18, who was killed in June 2009, just one day before his class graduated from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis. 20 Somali-Americans from Minnesota have been recruited by the Islamic jihadi group al-Shabaab to go overseas. Five of them, including Bihi's teenage nephew, who died while training and fighting in Somalia's bloody civil war. One died while killing others in a suicide attack.
