Abdul-Malik Ryan

DePaul University

Abdul-Malik Ryan is the Assistant Director of Religious Diversity and Pastoral Care at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.

Ryan routinely alleges on his personal Twitter account that white supremacy is embedded into American society. Several of these tweets are listed below.


In additional tweets uncovered by Breitbart News, Abdul-Malik Ryan quotes the convicted cop killer H. Rap Brown, also known as Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin.


While writing for his personal blog, Ryan praised Islamic terrorists and openly called for jihad. In a now-deleted post, he extols Anwar al-Awlaki, the former leader of Al-Qaeda in Yemen, as an articulate and “fearless” speaker. Al-Awlaki was the mastermind behind the Fort Hood Shooting and the attempted Christmas Day bombing attack of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 to Detroit, Michigan.

Ryan further applauds the “Mujahideen,” or Islamic guerrilla fighters, for resisting the American presence in Iraq and bringing an “Islamic revival” that will establish an Islamic State in the Middle East.

In 2008, Ryan posted a “nasheed” sung by Islamic jihadists and fundamentalists. Nasheeds are religious Capellas that are popular in the Muslim world. In this particular one, the lyrics feature a chant that calls for jihad.

According to the website, Muslim Matters, Ryan converted to Islam in 1994, accrediting heavy influence from Malcolm X, the National Representative for the Nation of Islam and a prominent black nationalist.
