Call on ADAMS to CANCEL Hamza Yusuf
This is a call on the ADAMS Center in Sterling, VA to rescind their invitation of Hamza Yusuf (see flyer below) for his recent shameful and insensitive remarks about the people of Syria saying that:
- Allah is humiliating them for trying to humiliate Bashar al-Assad (Victim-blaming)
- Showing a clear lack of moral clarity by laughing at them and asking "how did that revolution turn out for you"
- For shaming them for seeking refuge in other countries
- For misrepresenting ahadith and the deen to fit his own narrative
What made these words more dangerous was the location where the speech took place, Turkey. There is already growing hostility towards Syrian refugees especially with the election of the new Mayor of Istanbul who has promised to send all the refugees back home. These types of statements to locals stirs up more hate and furthers the divide.

(If ADAMS does the right thing and realizes this man should not be given a platform to speak to our community the online Muslim community will support their fundraiser through social media crowdfunding)
