ISLAMOPHOBIC ORGANIZATIONS: Straight Way of Grace Ministry

Straight Way of Grace Ministry

Usama Dakdok’s Straight Way of Grace Ministry is an Islamophobic organization based in Florida. Straight Way of Grace Ministry has described Islam as “worse than cancer.” Ministry founder Dakdok claims American Muslims “will kill your children”  and “we are in war with Islam.” Dakdok also calls Islam a “savage cult” and a “disease.” He believes Muslims are using school textbooks to “brainwash” children and that such “trash” should be replaced in public schools with “Jesus’ teaching.”

In 2014, in the FAQ section of its website, the Ministry explained, “The goal of The Straight Way of Grace Ministry is twofold. The first is to expose Islam for what it is, and yes it is worse than a cancer, and this can be shown clearly in the reading of the Qur’an and the Hadith.”

Dakdok called Islam a “wicked cult” at a December 10, 2012 event in Ohio, titled “Infiltration of Islam in America?” which was sponsored by the Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party. Dakdok also claimed that American Muslims “will kill your children” and that “we are in war with Islam.”

During his presentation, Dakdok also made hate-filled claims such as: (NOTE: Speaker’s linguistic errors retained.)

  • “The day will come and Muslim in America will have the upper hand, and they will kill your children for not eating what is liked. For not eating the lawful foods.”
  • “What happened to the women and the children? They were raped. By who? By Muhammad and his followers. And they got pregnant, and they had babies, and the baby was born by the name Fatima, and Khadija, and Obama, and Hussein, and Barack, and all those wonderful Muslim names.”
  • “[W]ithout Allah they will die and for sure they would spend eternity in hell with Muhammad and with all previous Muslims, and Baptist, and Presbyterian, and Catholic, and everyone who’s think by going to some church will make it to heaven.”
  • “Killing you is a small matter [for Muslims].”
  • “We were not in war with Bin Ladin, we are in war with Islam.”
  • “[T]hen you have a revival in America among the Muslim, and that’s when they start beheading your children and your grandchildren.”
  • “So they say this month two and a half percent of the profit [American banks] made will go to Egypt. To help to get rid of illiteracy. What do they mean by illiteracy? They meant Christian. We are gonna kill some Christian. Or this month we are gonna get rid of some AIDS. What is AIDS? That is the Jews.”

According to the St. Cloud Times, in 2016 Dakdok “called Islam a ‘savage cult’ that teaches its followers to kill non-believers.” In June 2014, Dakdok said, “With the wisdom God gave me I know how bad the disease of Islam is.”

Citing educational textbooks with sections about Islam that he disagrees with, Dakdok said, “We need to move this trash out of our public school and replace it with Jesus’ teaching. Muslims are trying to use (it) to brainwash your children.
