This issue looks at the mosque as a terrorist training center.
SINCE YOU ASKED
Most Americans who call themselves Christians attend church once a week. Those who are more serious or devoted may go as many as two or three times a week. With the Muslim community, it’s another story. They may visit their local mosque more than thirty times a week. This is because the mosque is so much more than a place of worship. It may serve as a meeting house, a prayer house, farmers market, education center, and health clinic. If that was the end of the story, we would all live happily ever after. Contrary to what we are constantly told, however, it also serves as command central for planning the local or regional jihad against the infidels, a weapons distribution or redistribution center, and a training ground for would-be terrorists.
There’s plenty of proof right here in the USA and worldwide. Brooklyn’s Farouq mosque has gained the reputation of a hotbed for terrorists like the notorious blind Sheikh Abel Rahman. Ali Mohammed used this mosque train, among others, those who participated in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and the 1998 African embassy bombings. American-born Imam Anwar Awlaki preached at the Rabat mosque in San Diego where he met some of the 9/11 conspirators. Some moved to the Dar al Hijra mosque in northern Virginia with Awlaki. There, Awlaki preached to Maj. Nidal Hasan who later carried out the massacre at Fort Hood. Convicted airline bomber Richard Reid was radicalized at the Finsbury Park Mosque headed by the openly anti-Western cleric Abu Hamza al Masri. Then there’s the al Quds mosque in Hamburg, Germany where the leaders of the 9/11 attacks, including Mohammed Atta, met, were radicalized, and put in touch with Osama bin Laden.
AS I SEE IT
Considering what we now know about these and other mosques, it’s hard for me to imagine how any thinking person could think that the proposed mosque at Ground Zero would be any different. All the evidence says that this will outstrip any of those just mentioned in its influence and impact. At least some nations are finally starting to understand what these mosques are really all about. In France, authorities routinely bug mosques to learn of planned attacks. American authorities are finally starting to get it. The FBI monitors selected mosques in tracking suspected terrorists.
We learned enough from the recently uncovered 1991 Muslim Brotherhood memorandum to know that every mosque will, at some point, be strategic in the jihad to overthrow America. Those of us who “get it” must do all we can to educate America and take steps to stop the takeover. First of all, we must educate ourselves, knowing the enemy and his tactics. My latest book, Islam and the Last Days, is a great place to start. Share my posts with your friends, relatives, and those in influential positions. Write letters to the editor. (Some people still read newspapers.) For now, understand that every mosque constructed in the U.S. gives the enemy another foothold on our soil. I hope you see why I previously equated those Americans who support the Ground Zero mosque with treason.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
