“Incident Of 9/11?” Coral Springs Candidate Khurrum Wahid Said “Our Faith…Really Is The Best Thing For Americans”

This video doesn’t exist

In an interview with a Pakistani television program at the 2011 Islamic Society Of North America (ISNA) Convention, Coral Springs City Commission candidate Khurrum Wahid casually refers to the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001 as “the incident of 9/11.” When the Pakistani-born lawyer is asked about the purpose of his Emerge USA/Emgage political committee, Wahid said they need to encourage young people to run for office to show, “[T]hat our faith, when put into action, really is the best thing for Americans as well.”

This is not the first time religion has become an issue in the Commission Seat 2 race.

On Friday, REDBROWARD reported how one of Wahid’s opponents used a Sunday sermon to address a political problem plaguing the campaign. Pastor Randal Cutter of the New Dawn Community Church tried to address concerns over his 1999 dreams about a hurricane. In a television interview at the time, Cutter claimed God used these dreams to warn people about Hurricane Irene. In his June 9, 2019 sermon, Cutter claimed if residents knew about the dreams it would help his campaign. Cutter said voters may think he has an “edge with God” that his opponents lack.

“We have a tendency to say, my God it’s better to have one of him than a whole bunch of those other people,” Cutter said. “Because they would be thinking maybe he has an edge with God.”

The election will be held this Tuesday.

Whisper Campaign Targets Church Pastor Running For Coral Springs Commission

While most of the Coral Springs election coverage remains focused on Khurrum Wahid’s bogus claims of “racism” and “xenophobia,” a whisper campaign targets one of his opponents, Randal Cutter. This underground campaign details how in 1999, Cutter, the pastor of New Dawn church, claimed God gave him visions of an approaching hurricane. Cutter made no secret of the visions he claims God gave him.

The dreams which purportedly warned Cutter about Hurricane Irene are blasted all over the New Dawn website. In 1999, Cutter appeared on WPTV 5- NBC in West Palm Beach to discuss the visions. Plus, a book Cutter wrote about the Hurricane Irene visions can be purchased now on Amazon.

Despite the public nature of Cutter’s visions and claims he was chosen by God to warn others about Hurricane Irene, someone has been sharing these stories with Coral Springs residents just days before the upcoming June 18th election. In addition to a link of the WPTV broadcast, a copy of Cutter’s letter to local religious leaders about the visions is being shared.

The blurry images appeared to be pulled directly from Cutter’s book, Whatever You Bind On Earth: Authority To Stop Hurricanes. In the book, Cutter says he sent the letter to more than fifty churches. He hoped to get other churches to heed his warning about the hurricanes. According to Cutter, only 6 church leaders responded to the letter.

Despite questions about the validity of Randal Cutter’s visions, it is clear someone wants to expose his non-mainstream religious beliefs before voters hit the polls. At least three campaigns contacted by REDBROWARD were aware of the WPTV video, but each one denied any intent to use the video.

Even the Sun-Sentinel jumped into the religion-bashing when it stated Cutter had just 125 members in his flock. Sources say Cutter told Sun-Sentinel editor Rosemary O’Hara the number was closer to 140 members.

Judge for yourself.
