"Yahuds [Jews] are the enemy of humanity." ―Abdul Alim Musa

Abdul Alim Musa (Arabic: عبد العليم موسى; born 1945; Clarence Reams; a.k.a. "Big Hank") is a radical anti-America pro-Hezbollah[1] African-American imam. He is the director of Masjid al-Islam of Washington, D.C. (4603 Benning Road SE, Washington, DC 20019), founder and director of As-Sabiqun, and a member of the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT). Abdul Alim Musa is a well-known speaker in many places around the world, including at Shia Association of Bay Area (Saba Islamic Center), the extremist anti-Semitic organization based in San Jose, California. Abdul Alim Musa is also a close friend of the infamous Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi) (legal name: Nabi Raza Mir), the Khomeinist resident mullah at Masjid SABA (SABA Mosque).

Adbul Alim Musa considers "Clarence Reams" to be his slave name.

Early life

Clarence Reams was born in Arkansas in 1945; however, he grew up in Oakland, California, where he became famously known as "Big Hank." There, during the 1960s, he associated with H. Rap Brown, who later adopted a radical version of Islam and became known as imam Jamil al-Amin.

In the Sixties and Seventies, "Big Hank" was a major distributor of "snow" in the United States! He now proudly shares about his former exploits at places like Saba Mosque of San Jose, California!

"Big Hank" set-up a drug dealing operation in Colombia, but eventually was arrested on charges that included heroin and currency smuggling and assaulting a federal agent. After evading the authorities for several years, "Big Hank" fled to Algeria, where he came into contact with several exiled Black Panther leaders such as Eldridge Cleaver. He eventually returned to the United States, where he turned himself in. "Big Hank" was put on trial and subsequently incarcerated at the U.S. Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas, among other correctional institutions.

While in prison, "Big Hank" converted to Islam and adopted the Arabic name "Abdul Alim Musa." He embraced radicalism and supported the 1979 Iranian revolution. Abdul Alim appartently believed that Khomeini's oppressive regime would lead to global Islamic dominance.

After the successful establishment of the Velayat-e Faqih regime in Iran, Abdul Alim Musa openly expressed his support for its anti-America extremist Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Since the early 1980s Abdul Alim has made several visits to the so-called Islamic Republic, where he introduced himself to the rogue Iranian mullahs as a representative of American Muslims and a staunch supporter of their Faqihi regime. Throughout the decade, he developed connections with a wide array of like-minded Muslim activists, both Sunni and Shia. Abdul Alim emphasized unity as the primary factor for the success of the extremist Islamist movements.

Abdul Alim Musa studied the intellectual works of several famous Islamist leaders such as Malcolm X, Ayatollah Khomeini, Sayyid Qutb, Maulana Maududi, and Kalim Siddiqui. He also encouraged his followers to individually familiarize themselves with the writings of these political Islamists.

Abdul Alim Musa and anti-Semitism

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) asserts that Abdul Alim Musa "propagates a radical and anti-Semitic ideology." ADL quotes him as saying "Who ran the slave trade…who funded [it]? You’ll study and you will find out: the Jews…It was the Jewish bankers... in Vienna, with pockets full of money, funding and insuring, that’s who did it... you can’t tell us about no holocaust. Between the African Americans and the Native Americans, everybody else’s stuff was small potatoes."

According to Benjamin Ginsberg, Abdul Alim Musa gave "a vehemently Anti-semitic" speech at an event sponsored by the Associated Students of the University of Washington and the Black Students Commission. Musa proclaimed that America was controlled by Jews and that "Yahuds [Jews] are the enemy of humanity."

عبد العليم موسى: "اليهود هم لا شيئ!"
Abdul Alim Musa: "Jews are nothing..."

Numerous observers have noted that Abdul Alim Musa promotes extremism and anti-Semitism in his speeches. Musa rejects these claims and argues that his statements are directed at the Zionist supporters of Israel — not the Jewish people in general. However, many of his proclamations suggest otherwise. For instance:

Abdul Alim Musa: "Al-Amin [a convicted murderer] ... turned his ideas, his belief in Islam, into practical solutions for society. And they can’t stand that. Just like our brother said: 'The Zionist are the same today as they was then.' In those days [in Arabia before the revelation and ascendance of Islam] they controlled the liquor market in Madina... and the Zionists kept the Arab leaders broke and drunk... the Yahud [Arabic for Jews] were seating back and had each one of them [the Arab clans] fighting each other because the leaders was both drunken and they was all in owe (sic) to the same Yahud... he was manipulating the Arabs... then Islam came [and abolished riba, or interest]."

Activities and statements by Abdul Alim Musa

During a rally in July 1999, Abdul Alim Musa openly displayed a cashier's check made out "Hamas, Palestine," to protest the 1996 U.S. law that declared Hamas a terrorist entity. In fact, Hamas is an extremist Palestinian organization financed and controlled by the Velayat-e Faqih regime of Iran.

عبد العليم موسى: "الإنتحاريون أبطال..."
Abdul Alim Musa: "Suicide bombers heroes..."

Imam Abdul Alim Musa, of the Masjid al-Islam in Washington D.C., on suicide bombers in Washington, DC in June 2002.


Abdul Alim Musa: When they go out and strike at the heart of Zionism. They are not suicide bombers they are heroes they are she-roes, isn't that right? That's a part of our deen, that's a part of our religion, lets not become weak boned and apologetic, and run around trying to appease this government and that government.

Abdul Alim Musa proudly announced that "I would love to have a case in court with the FBI. I would love for them to arrest me on any trumped-up charges." Abdul Alim later boasted that "I tried to get a case several years ago. We had a demonstration. I waved a check for Hamas, cashier's check, by the way. And I said, 'I'm donating this to Hamas.' Then I waited for them to arrest me. They didn't arrest me. So I put the thing back in the bank."

عبد العليم موسى: "سنحرق أمريكا!"
Abdul Alim Musa: "Burn America down!"

At an event titled Shaping Our Perspective: Our Role in a Changing World held on January 21, 2001, and sponsored by Muslim Students Association (MSA) at UCLA, Abdul Alim Musa is quoted as stating: "If you were to say that the Soviet Union was wiped off the face of the earth . . . people would have thought you were crazy, right? The people of Afghanistan didn’t have the intellect or historical knowledge to know that they wasn’t supposed to wipe out the Soviet Union, is that right? ... We saw the fall of one so-called superpower, Old Sam [the United States] is next."

Abdul Alim Musa, the imam of Masjid Al-Islam in Washington, at UC Irvine, two days before the 9/11 attacks. The event was a benefit dinner for Jamil Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, who was accused of killing a Fulton County, Ga. sheriff's deputy serving a warrant in 2000. Al-Amin received a life sentence after being convicted of the deputy's murder in March 2000.


Abdul Alim Musa: Imam Jamil coined a phrase, and that phrase meant this: "If you don't give us justice. If you don't give us equality. If you don't give us our share of America. If you don't stay out of our way and leave us alone, we're gonna burn America down."

On July 7, 2000, Abdul Alim Musa was in the company of his wife and daughter when he witnessed members of the Metropolitan Police of Washington, D.C., beating an individual. Abdul Alim Musa intervened by approaching the officers, requesting that they stop, and ultimately grabbing one of them! He consequently was arrested for assaulting the police. Abdul Alim Musa spent two nights in prison. On July 10, 2000, he appeared before a judge in court, where the charge against him was reduced to a misdemeanor.

Abdul Alim Musa has made numerous statements that can be considered controversial by the average American. For instance:

  • Zionist American agents blew up the World Trade Center
  • Palestinian suicide bombers are heroes
  • The U.S. government saturated American cities with heroin in the 1960s to snuff out African-American rebellion
  • The United States should become an Islamic state

عبد العليم موسى: "المخابرات الأميريكية خلف أحداث الحادي عشر من سبتمبر..."
Abdul Alim Musa: "CIA behind 9/11..."

In a video clip broadcast by Fox News, Abdul Alim Musa stated, from behind a podium at the University of California at Irvine on Sept. 9, 2001, that "if you don't stay out of our way and leave us alone, we're going to burn America down." Musa later stated that he was simply paraphrasing Jamil Al-Amin, formerly H. Rap Brown, a prominent Black Panther in the 1960s. Abdul Alim Musa never threatened to burn the United States down, according to a longer video and transcript of the speech posted on the Web site of the Investigative Project.

Abdul Alim Musa has also stated that "the American ship is going down. And it's clowns like that [President George W. Bush] that's driving it down. We don't have to do nothing. Just step back, pray, fast, do good deeds, and stuff like that. And let that guy go ... When he finishes, nobody will love, nobody will trust, and nobody will believe anything coming from the United States of America."

In a debate with George Mason University professor Jack Goldstone aired on Press TV on January 5, 2010, Abdul Alim said that Muslims believe that 90% of the bombings in the world are done by the United States government and the Mossad:

Abdul Alim Musa: Right. I am just going to go straight to the point. If you go back for the last 20 years, from the first World Trade Center bombing in '93... This is our view, from those who... We said it then, and we say it now, and this is the belief in the Muslim world: 90% of the bombing plots – or this plot or that plot – we believe is done by and with the help and the aid of Mossad, and the United States government. This is our experience. We believe that whoever this guy is from Nigeria - we don't believe he has any ties with Islam. If you talk about the World Trade Center bombing – all of these things are done... I can give you two quick reasons, and it will solve the problem. Number one - to blame these things on Muslims. You get the Patriot Act, you get the anti-terrorism bill, you get a right to what they call stop, put a freeze, on the global Islamic movement, which has been spreading, growing, and developing. You get a chance to launch missiles, to kill, and to put a freeze on the Islamic movement. But the Islamic movement is only the first target.

...Yes, definitely. This is our belief. We've said this. We have... I didn't bring them all... We have "CIA Patterns of Deception," "Zionist Control of Media," "Babylon the Great" – these are years old – "Bush the Unifier"... Our belief has always been, since 1993, and we've done TV programs on it – that the United States government... Who do you talk about? You talk about Al-Qaeda. Where did Al-Qaeda come from? Al-Qaeda, Bin Laden, and all that – those are US friends...

Interviewer: But why would the US do this to its own people?

Abdul Alim Musa: In order to control them....

Banning of Abdul Alim Musa from the United Kingdom

"If they don't want me, I don't want them." ―Adbul Alim Musa

In April 2009, Abdul Alim Musa's name was released to the press as one of 22 people who were declined entry into the United Kingdom in October 2008. The British government announced that it has banned Abdul Alim from the UK because he is "considered to be engaging in unacceptable behavior by fomenting and glorifying terrorist violence in furtherance of his particular beliefs and seeking to provoke others to terrorist acts."

Abdul Alim Musa at Shia Association of Bay Area

Imam Abdul Alim Musa has given speeches at the Islamist center of Shia Association of Bay Area (Saba Islamic Center), the extremist anti-Semitic Khomeinist organization based in San Jose, California. Musa is at home at SABA, for it is the proper platform for renowned anti-Semites to deliver their abhorrent messages.

Abdul Alim Musa and Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi), the exposed extremist Khomeinist resident cleric at SABA mosque, are very good buddies. Their converging paths in life brought the duo together and the commonly championed cause cemented their relationship. Indeed, both Abdul Alim and Nabi Raza share affection and admiration of grand terrorist Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the late founder of the anti-American Velayat-e Faqih regime in Iran, and loyalty to Ali Khamenei, the discredited Iranian Supreme Leader.

While at SABA, Abdul Alim Musa talked extensively about his former cocaine business, made a variety of absurd statements, and denounced the United States, President George W. Bush, and President-elect Barack Hussein Obama. He also engaged in fund raising and distributed and exhibited anti-CIA, anti-FBI, and anti-police flyers at SABA.

The Wake-up Yank

The Wake-up Yank

O Maulana "Big Hank,"[2]
Let's be very, very frank,
Your mama should give you a good spank,
For your speeches always clank,
Yes, they impress embittered mullahs of low rank,[3]
And get you checks on the blank,
True, it's good money in the bank,
This keeps your big beak a little dank,
And feeds your deep desires to be swank,
But your whole thing is a lousy prank!
Think not hating America is the only plank,
It's your own country you should thank,
Wake-up, be not Khamenei's slave on the far flank!
His sad mobs have already shrank,
His sodomite regime is getting lank,
It's not dead, yet it has already stank,
Don't wait until it has expired and sank,
Turn around and put your raging feelings on the brank,
It's your beautiful Columbia[4] that you ought to embank!
