But he said that he never thought he was extreme enough to kill anyone.
My favorite person in this room, that's mutual, is Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who has been a mentor, and motivator and encourager of mine, someone who has taught me to speak truth to power and not worry about the consequences, someone who has taught me we are on this earth to please Allah, and only Allah, that we are not here to please any man or women on this Earth, so I'm grateful to you, Imam Siraj ...
"This doesn't seem like them".
New Mexico authorities, however, said they had yet to identify the remains, found on Monday.
The Brooklyn imam whose son has been accused of training children at a New Mexico compound to commit school shootings contends the incident is being used as propaganda against Muslims, characterizing his son as "high strung" but not a religious extremist.
The search for him led authorities to New Mexico, where 11 hungry children and a youngster's remains were found in recent days at a filthy compound shielded by old tyres, wooden pallets and a wall studded with broken glass. All five suspects are being held without bail.
Wahhaj, whom authorities say was eventually found armed with multiple firearms, including an assault rifle, is wanted on a warrant in Georgia in the disappearance of his son.
The child's father was among five adults arrested on suspicion of child abuse in the raid at the compound.
A warrant says the father at some point told his wife he wanted to perform an exorcism on the boy, who suffers seizures and requires constant attention due to suffering a lack of oxygen and blood flow at birth.
The elder Wahhaj said he did not know anything about his son wanting to perform an exorcism on the boy. But he said his son and one of his daughters had become "overly concerned" with the idea of people becoming possessed. The remains of one child, a severely disabled boy, also were found.
The 11 children are in foster care.
PA adds jobs, but unemployment rate up
Nationally, Statistics Canada says the country added 54,100 jobs in July and the national unemployment rate fell to 5.8 per cent. Camrose-Drumheller is sitting at an unemployment rate of 4.5 per cent up from June's 4.4 per cent.
He said he plans to go to New Mexico to try to retrieve his grandchildren. The young boy was not among the 11 children found at the property, though investigators are working to identify a child's remains that they say they found in the area after getting a second search warrant.
Badger said he even signed a consent for authorities to search the property since it actually belonged to him.
Police say Wahhaj's grandson was taken there after being abducted by his father in December.
"Of course this is a hard time for her", Rashid said of the mother.
She and Siraj Ibn Wahhaj had been married nearly 14 years, and she said he disappeared after saying he was taking the boy to a park.
"She said, 'We need some food, we're starving, '" the imam said.
The elder Wahhaj said all 11 of the children, ages 1 to 15, were either his biological grandchildren or members of his family through marriage. He added that Morton is his son-in-law, and 35-year-old Janie Leiveille is his daughter-in-law.
Hujrah Wahhaj appears in New Mexico state district court to plead not guilty to charges of child abuse in Taos, New Mexico, August 8, 2018, alongside public defense attorney Aleks Kostich. And prosecutors said they were awaiting word on the cause of death before deciding on any charges.
"Those who know them say this is unusual, so we want to find out what happened", he said in a news conference in his office at Masjid At-Taqwa mosque in Brooklyn. "Because to do something as extreme as this, it doesn't make sense".
The elder Wahhaj was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and, as WND has reported, is on record urging a violent overthrow of the "filthy" US government, assisted by jihad warriors armed with Uzis. She has praised the cleric on her Twitter account dating as far back as at least 2011, and called him a "mentor" at an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference a year ago.
Commenting on being named an unindicted co-conspirator, Wahhaj argued he was one of 172 people put on a list by U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White in 1995 and has never been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
