In the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack by Omar Mateen, Central Florida’s Imam Muhammad Musri was asked on The Mike Gallagher Show about his 2011 comments on the radicalization of the Middle East, in which he talks about how the Gulf War changed the sentiment towards Americans.

Now Musri says that is a lie, the video clip (watch it below) is the by-production of a hate group (video was posted by Islamic Society of Central Florida) and denounces violence.

“These comments were taken out of context from a Q&A session by a local hate group who doctored the comments,” Musri asserts. “…There is no justification for 9/11 or what happened yesterday, here in Orlando.”

The Video claims to be a lecture at The University Club in Winter Park, Fla. back on 6/22/2011. Musri explains the shift in hatred towards Americans who did not have “blood on their hands” prior to Desert Storm and “it became an issue to people there…it generated radicalization among the youth in the Middle East especially and that radicalization fomented and culminated with 9/11…”

Look for and locate the edits for yourself in the clip below.

Omar Mateen has expressed loyalty to Islamic State, his father Seddique echoes a homophobic stance, particularly during Ramadan, dismissing his son’s “radicalization.”
