All the regimes against which the imam Shaker Elsayed rails are non-Sharia regimes. And when he asks Allah to grant victory to the mujahideen, he doesn’t have an interior spiritual struggle in mind, as is made clear when he says: “The door to freedom is stained red with the blood of all the hands that have knocked on it.”

“Fairfax, VA Imam Shaker Elsayed: Arab Regimes Collaborate with Israel; We Must Remove Arab Governments by Any Means Possible,” MEMRI, August 9, 2019:

“In an August 9, 2019 Friday sermon, Egyptian-American Imam Shaker Elsayed of the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Fairfax County, Virginia – where Anwar Al-Awlaki had been imam during 9/11 – criticized Arab regimes for working with Israel to erase Palestine, for being weak, for fighting over trivial issues like borders and resources, and for imitating the West and “scavenging” like an “unwanted dog at the dinner table.” Imam Elsayed went on to say that all powers that interfere with the Arabs’ aspirations for glory must be removed by all means possible, and he added: “We cannot continue to have peace with repressive regimes… We have to remove the source of our misery, [which is] these governments.” He cited an Arab poem that says that the door to freedom is stained with the blood of the hands that have knocked on it, and he said that the Arabs need people who are willing to “take initiative” and be “ingenious” like the Palestinians in Gaza and like the Afghans in the 1980s. Imam Elsayed concluded with a prayer asking Allah to grant victory to the mujahideen throughout the world. The sermon was uploaded to the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center’s YouTube channel, and it was the ninth installment of a series of talks titled “The Crisis of Our Ummah.” In the past, Imam Shaker Elsayed has been the subject of criticism and censure for antisemitic statements and for statements that have been in support of Jihad and female genital mutilation (see MEMRI TV Clips No. 5989, No. 6043, No. 6057, and No. 6378). According to the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center’s website, Imam Elsayed is the Secretary-General of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which has also recently been the subject of criticism surrounding a pro-Jihad children’s event at a MAS-affiliated school in Philadelphia (see MEMRI TV Clip No. 7194).
