YUSUF AL-KHATAB

( Joseph Leonard Cohen )

 

Yusuf Al-Khatab was born in Morocco in 1969 to a Jewish family as Joseph Leonard Cohen. His family moved to Brooklyn, New York, when he was a child and he grew up as an ordinary Jewish American. In his teenage Joseph Leonard Cohen received a Jewish education at a Jewish seminary run by the anti-Zionist orthodox Satmar Hasidic community in New York.

 

In 1998, Joseph Leonard Cohen and his family immigrated to Israel and moved to a Jewish community in the Gaza Strip and later to a small town in Israel. Yusuf Al-Khatab obtained an Israeli citizenship.

 

Yusuf Al-Khatab says his conversion to Islam started after a series of conversations online with a Muslim from the United Arab Emirates. Based on Yusuf al-Khattab’s account, rejection of Judaism and even hatred of Jews were the focus of their exchange.

 

Yusuf Al-Khatab and his wife converted to Islam in Morocco, his birth country, in 2002 and together with their children moved to an Arab neighborhood in East Jerusalem, where he worked for a Muslim Charity. Around that time, he became involved with a Web site that aims to convert Jews to Islam, called Jews for Allah (JFA). The JFA site was created by Yusuf al-Khattab’s associate, Mohammed Ghounem.

 

The JFA site contains anti-Semitic content. For example one section called “Judaism: A Religion of Terrorists?” argues that Zionist-Jews are terrorists and explains that “Jews who accept Islam are in reality leaving the proven illegal terrorists and joining the peaceful Muslims”.

 

In 11/2002, Yusuf Al-Khatab posted online a seemingly threatening note regarding a New York rabbi. He posted the rabbi’s photo and home address and wrote: “Please make every effort to reach this man, and help him understand what its like to suffer under lies…Please Ikhwan [Arabic for “brothers”], just make contact with this man.”  Yusuf Al-Khatab later claimed that his home was raided by the Israeli police because of a fabricated complaint by this rabbi.

 

After a brief time living in Tetouan, Morocco, Yusuf Al-Khatab returned to the USA in early 2007. That year, Yusuf Al-Khatab formed the New York’s branch of Revolution Muslim Group – RM, led by Sheikh Abdullah el-Faisal, and currently (2009) serves as its Amir (Arabic for “leader”) and “chief executive officer.”  While reportedly living in Queens and working as a pedicab driver, he seems to spend time in Morocco.

 

Yusuf Al-Khatab posted in his website, in 01/2009, a prayer calling for the murder of Jews and exhorting Muslims to “throw liquid drain cleaner in their faces.” And there’s nothing authorities can do about it. Yusuf Al-Khatab was, therefore, indicted of inciting to violance but, on 10/13/2009, was acquitted after the court said he is protected under the first amendment of the USA constitution, which grants him the freedom of speech and expressing his voice.

 

* Revolution Muslim – RM, has only a handful of active members. They have reportedly received the attention of law enforcement, in 01/2009, in response to the Israeli military operation against Hamas in Gaza, Revolution Muslim posted a picture on its Web site of Chabad’s world headquarters in Brooklyn with a message encouraging readers to “make every  attempt to reach these people and teach them the message of Islam or leave them a message from Islam. The posting, which was titled “Do Not Let Orthodox Judaism Get Away From Murder in Ghaza,” reportedly prompted a police investigation. They also run a website – REVOLUTIONMUSLIM.COM .  

 

* Chabad is a Jewish Zionist Orthodox congregation with followers all over the world but with its headquarters in New York

A jew called Joseph Cohen, was living in USA then moved to Gaza in Palestine as a jew settler on the year 1998.. He met an Emarati (from UAE) Muslim Sheikh through the internet and discussed with him religious discussion about many facts, which ended for Cohen to be a Muslim, converted to Islam and changed his name to Yusuf Khattab.

JERUSALEM – Joseph Cohen moved from the United States to Israel as a devout Jew in 1998, but within three years he had converted to Islam and become Yosef Mohammed Khatib, a supporter of the militant Hamas, according to a report broadcast Thursday on Israel TV.

Now he refuses to say the word Israel, choosing instead to call the area “Palestine.” His four children study the Quran, the Muslim holy book, instead of the Torah, its Jewish counterpart.

It was while living in the desert town of Netivot that Khatib met a sheik from the United Arab Emirates through an Internet chat about Israel. Khatib said he spent hours corresponding with the sheik, discussing theology. Gradually he began to see Judaism as racist and turned toward Islam after reading the Quran, he told Channel 10 TV. The report did not say where he lived in the United States or give his age.

Last year he told his wife of 10 years, Luna, also a devout Jew from the United States, that he wanted to convert to Islam.

“I said, `Listen, I love you very much … and I have to be honest with you,'” Khatib said in the TV interview. “I read the Quran and I agree with everything it says in the Quran, and if I continue saying that I’m a religious Jew, I would be a liar.”

The family converted together and moved from Netivot to an Arab neighborhood in east Jerusalem. The children went from being top in their classes on Judaism studies to being well-versed in Islam, he said.

Instead of supporting the Israeli Orthodox Jewish political party Shas, Khatib now supports the radical Islamic Hamas and believes an Islamic state should be set up where Israel and the Palestinian areas are now located.

He praised Hamas for setting up social services for Palestinians but dodged questions about the other side of the Islamic group — suicide bombings and other attacks against Israelis. The United States has declared Hamas a terror group.

Khatib differed from most Israelis and Americans in his views about Osama bin Laden, the top suspect in the Sept. 11 terror attacks in New York and Washington.

“I think that he’s number one, Muslim number one,” Khatib said with a strong New York accent about bin Laden. “But I don’t think that he’s responsible for the World Trade Center (attacks).”

Wearing the white skullcap and robes of a religious Muslim, Khatib denied his Jewish past, insisting that he is 100 percent Muslim. He made a parody of a blessing that observant Jews say every morning, in which they thank God for not making them gentiles.

“Blessed are Thou, Lord Our God,” Khatib began in the traditional Jewish blessing, but ended it with, “for not making me a Jew.”

Points to note:

1) Where was Joseph Cohen ( calling himself Yousef al-Khattab ) born according to various reports ? USA , Morocco , Israel ?

2) How did Joseph Cohen ( calling himself Yousef al-Khattab ) learn Arabic ? Was it through Internet chat with some emirati guy or was it that he lived in Arabic countries ?

3) Where did Joseph Cohen ( calling himself Yousef al-Khattab ) take Shahadah ( testimony of conversion )  and can he produce the witnesses

  2. It was Snouck’s dream to achieve a similar position in the field of Orientalism. In 1884 he got his chance. The Dutch consul in Jeddah, today Saudi-Arabia but at that time still part of the Ottoman Islamic State, a certain J.A. Kruyt, arranged a scholarship worth 1500 guilders for Snouck with the Dutch Government[1]. With this money Snouck could travel to Mecca. The only problem was that Snouck was not a Muslim, which was required for anyone wanting to travel to the Holy City. Therefore, Snouck first travelled to Jeddah. After having lived in the offices of the consulate for some time, on the 1st of January 1885 he moved into the house of an Indonesian nobleman in Jeddah, Raden Haji Aboe Bakr Djajadiningrat from Pandeglang[2]. From that moment onwards Snouck used the name Abdul Ghaffaar as he presented himself as a convert to Islam and on the 5th of January he even had himself circumcised according to Islamic tradition. When a little later, on the 16th of January 1885[3], Snouck was visited by the Judge (qadhi) of Jeddah, Ismail Agha, and two representatives of the Governor (wali) for the Hejaz of the Ottoman Khilafah sitting in Istanbul, he declared conversion to Islam (shahadah) in their presence. The next day Snouck was told that the Governor for the Hejaz invited him to travel to Mecca.

    Snouck himself confessed that his conversion to Islam was not sincere, but only a step he deemed necessary to achieve his goal of travelling to Mecca. In a letter to his friend Goldziher, written on the day he converted, he said: “I do not want to keep hidden from you that it is possible, or even quite possible, that I will travel to Mecca […]. Of course, if one does not pretend to be Muslim [literally: does Izhar al Islam], this is not possible.”

    Snouck’s Muslim disguise was a success. Letters he received during his stay in Mecca were addressed to “Abdul Ghaffaar”, and in them Snouck was regularly called “brother in Name of Allah”. Snouck was also informed by letter that the scholars of Mecca had accepted him as a Muslim and that they did not doubt his conversion. And that, hence, he would be allowed to join in their study circles, which Snouck then did.

    After just five and a half months, however, and just days before the start of Hajj, Snouck had to flee Mecca because the French embassy had spread rumours about him being a thief of ancient artifacts. Hence, just a few days before Snouck could witness what he wanted to witness, he left Mecca.[4]Dont trust jews. History tells us repeatedly. Cohen is only pretending. Shepardim proven more radical. How come a family of ortodox jewish converts to islam easily? It is a questionable process. Cohen will stab moslem from the back when time comes. Cohen resembles Snouck Hungronje in Aceh in 19 century. Converted to Islam, joined Aceh Moslem Community, learned their way of live and customs, went to hajj in mecca, and at the end went back to dutch military station. Told them information, secret, important location, and his analysis. Then the dutch attacked the Aceh people, detained the princess, and destroyed the community. After mission accomplished, Hungronje went back to Holland.
