Taha Jaber al-Alwani is a Muslim certified by the U.S. Military to vet Muslim Clerics as suitable to be Muslim Chaplains. The question becomes: How or who vetted al-Alwani to be a person who vets Muslims to serve as Chaplains in the U.S. Military?
Woefully al-Alwani’s vetting seems to be only his condemnation of Islamic terrorism that initiated America’s Global War on Terror (GWOT). It seems no one checked where al-Alwani has received his Islamic credentials and no one checked into the Jew-hatred that al-Alwani has written about claiming authority from the Islamic Jew-hating document known as the Quran.
Al-Alwani is a graduate of Al-Azhar University in Cairo. Al-Azhar is considered the preeminent academic university for Islamic faith among Muslims. Although there are many who graduate and teach at Al-Azhar that the Islamic world would label as moderate Islam, there also is a significant amount of graduates and Professors who are full supporters of radical Islam (aka purist Islam, Salafist Islam, Wahhabi Islam, etc.).
Al-Alwani taught at a Wahhabi university in Saudi Arabia.
Al-Alwani has served as the Chairman Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA). The FCNA is a tool of the West-hating and Jew-hating Muslim Brotherhood.
In my opinion the Islamic background of Taha Jaber al-Alwani should disqualify him from anything to do with the U.S. Military or the U.S. Government.
