UPDATED: Sbenaty isn’t just a member. He’s the Islamic Center’s spokesman. So the kind, loving, healing Islamic Center’s spokesman is an avowed 9/11 Truther. Has, like, no one who’s a professional journalist looked into who these people are yet or dared to ask them that question for all the cameras and microphones they’ve shoved in their faces? I kid. The truth is not what this manufactured appearance of a hate crime is about.
While the Dying Media rattles its coil to make another uninformed smear of our state.
If fire can’t melt steel, can non-existent bullets hit a mosque? Better still, can lead penetrate concrete? Not in this engineer’s book.
I realize MTSU’s standards for professors scrape the bottom of the barrel but is hiring an avowed 9/11 Truther going to help anyone’s reputation?
Around 3:15, they reported hearing six shots coming from one direction, and about three minutes later they heard three more shots from another direction, said Saleh Sbenaty, a congregation member and MTSU professor.
He wasn’t sure if the shots were being fired at the Muslim group, but in the aftermath of the weekend vandalism, he said they felt it necessary to report.
That’s rich. Drive-by shootings in broad daylight in Murfreesboro. Right.
A quick search of Mr. Sbenaty shows that he is indeed an MTSU professor – sorry Moms and Dads that tuition money gets what it pays for. That search also yields this little tidbit. Sbenaty is a signator on a petition with the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth:
|Name:||Saleh M. Sbenaty|
|Category:||Engineering Professionals (Degreed)|
|Bio:||I am currently professor of Engineering Technology at Middle Tennessee State University. I have been at MTSU for the last 16 years and taught a variety of courses mostly in electronics, microprocessors, and analog and digital systems. I have also taught physics, statics, dynamics, eng. fundamentals, and other engineering courses. I have an extensive research record with over 60 publications. I am a reviewer for several journals and proceedings.|
|Personal 9/11 Statement:||I believe there are many lingering questions about the 9/11 report and investigation. Many of these questions are based on very basic and fundamental laws of physics. Unless a totally open and independent investigation is done and those who are accountable are brought to justice, scientists, engineers, and the public at large will keep searching for the truth until the full truth is revealed. Only then, our wounds will heal and our mind will live in peace.|
So, I’m left wondering – just how many Muslims at the Islamic Center in Murfreesboro are in fact 9/11 Truthers or worse? Who will rebuke Sbenaty’s radical and counterproductive views that keep the community from coming together?
Will the healing begin after we realize that Muslims weren’t behind it and that it was really Bush and the Jews? Is that when the “healing” begins?
Because frankly, I can’t wait.
His MTSU bio also indicates that he’s the faculty advisor of the Muslim Student Association as well as enriching experiences with the Oak Ridge facility famous for the Manhattan Project and Lockheed. It’s always encouraging to know the kids are in good hands.
I can’t wait but evidently I will need to since they still list one of their Board members on their website who was allegedly suspended in July for promoting Hamas on his Myspace page.
If these people are the moderates then which ones are the extremists? Inquiring minds and all.
