Son of imam of Saba Mosque of San Jose openly supports terrorism!
Unfortunately, some members of the Bay Area Shia community do in fact explicitly support terrorism. We set an example for the Muslim community in America and elsewhere by openly rejecting the misdeeds of such disturbed individuals. In this special video, the undercover investigative journalist Lee Kaplan and the TV host Zia Atabay discuss the pro-terrorism activities of Ali R. Mir (a.k.a. Ishraq Abidi) on the Los Angeles-based NITV. Ali Mir is the troubled son of Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi), the notorious imam of Saba Islamic Center of San Jose, CA.
