Much of the Main Stream Media including the New York Times thinks the Boston bombers “self-radicalized” on the Web. Well, apparently no one looked at their mosque, which has churned out other terrorists, too. I was glad to see that USA Today did look at their mosque — the Islamic Society of Boston — and found “a curriculum that radicalizes people,” according to a local source quoted in the paper’s investigation. “Other people have been radicalized there.”
Yep, several ISB members and leaders have been convicted or suspected of terrorism, including:
• Abdurahman Alamoudi, the mosque’s founder and first president, who in 2004 was sentenced to 23 years in federal prison for plotting terrorism as al-Qaida’s top fundraiser in America.
• Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT scientist-turned-al-Qaida agent, who in 2010 was sentenced to 86 years in prison for planning a New York chemical attack.
• Tarek Mehanna, who in 2012 was sentenced to 17 years for plotting to use automatic weapons to murder shoppers in a suburban Boston mall.
• Ahmad Abousamra, an ex-mosque official’s son, who fled the country after the FBI charged him with conspiring with Mehanna to kill Americans.
• Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a mosque trustee and Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader banned from the US after issuing a fatwa that OK’d killing US soldiers.
• Jamal Badawi, a former ISB trustee who in 2007 was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a plan to funnel $12 million to Palestinian suicide bombers.
In justifying mall attacks, the FBI said Abousamra stated “civilians were not innocent because they paid taxes to support the government and because they were kaffir (non-Muslims).” The Tsarnaev brothers, who murdered 3 and injured about 200 others, seemed to share that rationale. In 2009, ISB invited Yasir Qadhi to speak, even though the Saudi radical advocates turning the US into an Islamic state and calls Christians “filthy” polytheists whose “life holds no value in the state of jihad.” The Tsarnaev brothers, who began radicalizing in 2009, posted YouTube videos featuring imams exhorting the death of Christians and Jews and calling for the establishment of the caliphate.
ISB leaders have defended its rotten apples, including Siddiqui and Mehanna, despite overwhelming evidence against them. USA Today said the mosque gets millions from the Saudis, for whom the very radical Wahhabi-Sect Islam is their state religion. And it’s run by the Muslim American Society, which the FBI believes is the main US front for the Muslim Brotherhood, which created Hamas and al-Qaida. In its propaganda, MAS routinely claims America is at war with Islam. The younger Tsarnaev brother cited this myth as a reason for attacking innocents. NOTE: The US should have declared war on Radical Islam—these folks specifically want to replace our Constitution with Sharia Law. Further, a great many mosques have received much financial support from the Saudis–and many of them preach this message, too.
President Obama vows to finally crack down on terrorists. Anyone think he’ll even glance at the spiritual factories radicalizing them?
By the way, an interview with a student who hand known and hung out with the brothers, said it was common for them to talk about what a terrible country America was and how it deserved whatever happened to it because of all the bad things it was doing to Muslims. When asked why he didn’t report them to the authorities, his comment was enlightening: “I did not think anything of it. Around here (the Boston Universities areas) that is a very common attitude you hear all the time.” This week we found out that the Tsaraev’s have been almost totally supported in their travels and lifestyles by the people of the US and Massachusetts.
Most Muslims in America are just people of faith like you and I—but virtually all of the terrorists I’ve noted in the past several years are Muslims. It’s clearly time for American Muslims to purge their Mosques of people and texts that advocate killing Americans and overthrowing our Constitution; better they do it than waiting for the government to get around to it.
