Former Member: Oklahoma Mosque Taught Radical Islam

By    |   Wednesday, 01 Oct 2014 10:43 PM

A former member of an Oklahoma mosque attended by the suspect in a recent beheading said members and leaders taught radicalism but hid it from the media.

On Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File," the man appeared in silhouette, using the name Noor.

Noor said he attended the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City for about two years to learn about Islam.

"To the public, the mosque will not promote terrorism or any kind of radical acts," he said. "But when they're among friends and congregants only, they will promote the true teachings of Islam, which include the offer to non-Muslims – the choice, rather – that you must convert, live under Islamic rule, or be fought against."

He said he was told that Muslims support Palestinian suicide bombings in Israel because they are the only weapons the Palestinians have. He said he was warned, "Do not mention this to the media because they would not understand."

He said two friends told him they would welcome Osama bin Laden into their homes if he arrived at their door.

On one occasion, he was invited to go shooting. Two targets were identified as former President George W. Bush and former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

He said he finally left because he thought the mosque was too radical. He said his last visit was in 2011, at the request of law enforcement.

Alton Nolen, 30, is charged with killing his co-worker Colleen Hufford, 54, by cutting off her head at the food processing plant where they worked. Witnesses said he was shouting Arabic phrases during the attack.
