Hi Gloria

You are very correct and one of those days I plan to watch and listen to his old or pre-2004 sermons while living in Orange County Ca.

What is most amazing about this sordid man is the fact that he tried to enter Canada in 1997 via Detroit-Windsor crossing but he was detained, strip searched and sent back to the US which really means that the Canadians had information about him and this sordid character and they must have shared it with DHS but he was allowed back in the US and he went back to LA until he was deported in 2004-2005

As for Islamic institute of Orange County it would not surprise me in the least if his sermons in Arabic were edited and sanitized in the English translation

The real question that I have never been able to answer: Why was he deported? I do not buy the explanation that was provided by DHL
