Anwar Awlaki was a US citizen. He was invited here in 2004. He had not come to the attention of the authorities and therefore, he entered the country legally to give lectures and talks. At that time, Awlaki did not demonstrate any signs of extremism nor did he use any hateful rhetoric. The tour was informative and beneficial to those who attended. MAB does not bear any responsibility for any statements that he subsequently made that were deemed inappropriate or any alleged action that he later did in connection with or which resulted terrorist action.
I think that MAB’s greatest achievement has been reaching to younger people and launching the REVIVE campaign and MAB Youth to enlighten and educate us about the teaching and message of Islam – helping us.
