Hamza Yusuf and Yusuf Estes: "Diplomatic" truth-seekers?

by Kevin Barrett,

A Muslima for 9/11 truth, who helped us personally deliver 9/11 truth materials to Sheikh Hamza Yusuf's Zaytuna Institute, recently forwarded a video of the Sheikh's passionate defense of truth and justice, and suggested that M911T may have helped inspire this kind of speech:

Unfortunately, Hamza Yusuf apparently has not yet publicly spoken out for 9/11 truth, even though in the above video he does excoriate CIA drug dealing. He may be concerned that if he took a public pro-9/11-truth stance, his effort to establish Zaytuna University as the first Muslim university in the USA would be impeded by attacks from the 9/11 perps, their dupes, and those in power who fear that 9/11 truth would be destabilizing. (Note how the Cordoba Islamic Center project came under attack from Fox News due to its rather tangential link to Muslims for 9/11 Truth board member Dr. Faiz Khan.)

Sheikh Yusuf Estes, like Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, is a prominent American Muslim leader who opposes thulm (oppression/injustice) in all its forms, is not stupid, and therefore may be assumed to be an ally of those seeking to expose the truth about 9/11 and false-flag terrorism. But Sheikh Yusuf, like Sheikh Hamza, is spearheading a major effort to take Islam in America to the next level--in this case by a massive dawa outreach program. Speaking too forthrightly about 9/11 would invite attacks that could impede the dawa program.

Listen to Sheikh Yusuf Estes on the Kevin Barrett Show -- he speaks out, diplomatically, about current injustices during the last 20 minutes.

Good, honest American Muslim leaders like these two Sheikhs face a terrible dilemma: Speak out passionately for truth and put the projects they've worked for so hard at risk, or implicitly support the big lie that launched a genocidal war on Islam?

Dr. Faiz Khan, who has retired from 9/11 activism except in his advisory capacity with Muslims for 9/11 Truth, has a suggestion for Muslims who, for whatever reason, feel they cannot speak out publicly for 9/11 truth. Dr. Khan's suggestion: At least don't support the lie! If they ask you about 9/11 and the war on terror and you feel you can't speak the truth, then remain silent!

Also, those who are not willing to speak out and struggle in defense of their faith and their people can provide moral and/or financial support to those who are willing.

Most American Muslims would not be risking big, important Islamic projects if they spoke out. At most, they would be risking their own comforts in the dunya.

The Qur'an tells us that choosing comfort in the dunya over doing the right thing is a very big mistake.
