On September 18, 2021, a video was uploaded to a YouTube channel called "Shaikh Jibril" in which Michigan Islamic scholar Sheikh Ahmad Musa Jibril praised Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist who is serving an 86-year prison sentence at Federal Medical Center, Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas for attempted murder of U.S. military personnel and who is known for her post-9/11 affiliation with Al-Qaeda and Islamists. Sheikh Jibril said that in the past, capturing women was considered a declaration of war, and that Muslim leaders would “eradicate towns off the face of the earth” when such a thing happened. He said that Muslims should never abandon their brothers or sisters in a time of need, and that Siddiqui is an “icon for the plight of Muslim women held unjustly in prisons all over the globe.” In addition, Sheikh Jibril said that the Islamic justice system is just and moral, while in the American justice system, a jury comprised of "crackheads" and "meth addicts" convicts people. Furthermore, Sheikh Jibril said that U.S. authorities remove Muslim children from their homes in order to turn them into polytheists. The Shaikh Jibril YouTube channel is purportedly managed by Sheikh Jibril's students.
