Obama to make first presidential visit to US mosque – he picks THIS one?

Of all the mosques in the United States President Obama could have chosen to make the first official presidential visit, he chose one with deep ties to terrorism.

The president has attended several mosques overseas, but Wednesday’s visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore will mark the first in American. Its purpose is to “celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life,” the White House announced Saturday.

CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted:

The Baltimore mosque is a member of the Islamic Society of North America, which, along with the Council of American-Islamic Relations, was an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial. Both the ISNA and CAIR purport to be Islamic civil rights organizations.

Several ISNA executives were convicted of contributing money to finance the terrorist group Hamas, according to the Daily Caller. 

In addition, a Muslim Brotherhood member served as the Baltimore mosque’s imam for 15 years. The Daily Caller reported:

Mohammad Adam el-Sheikh, who served two stints as ISB’s imam, from 1983 to 1989 and from 1994 to 2003, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan in the 1970s. He also co-founded the Muslim American Society, a Falls Church, Va.-based group that is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.

While in Baltimore, el-Sheikh served as a regional director for the Islamic American Relief Agency. That group’s parent organization is the Islamic African Relief Agency, which the Treasury Department says provided funds to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Hamas and other terrorist organizations.

After leaving Baltimore, el-Sheikh served as imam at the infamous Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church.

 

While at that mosque, he defended the Palestinians use of suicide bombers against Israelis.

“If certain Muslims are to be cornered where they cannot defend themselves, except through these kinds of means, and their local religious leaders issued fatwas to permit that, then it becomes acceptable as an exceptional rule, but should not be taken as a principle,” he said in 2004, according to The Washington Post.

Given the president’s purported stance on gay rights and women’s equality, one has to wonder why he’s making the visit at all, even absent the mosque’s terror affiliations.

And indeed, el-Sheikh is depicted in a 2013 video speaking passionately against gay rights, as well as politicians who pander to gays.

    Glad he can find some things Muslims have done for America. Hates Christians and loves Muslims. Where is his allegiance to America? Oh wait… nope he has none.

    The muslim terrorist-In-Chief.

    Muslims have made a major contribution to life in America.

    Unfortunately, that contribution has been 100% negative to the quality of life and freedom.

    We no longer are free to move about the country without our papers. The Lynch Mob at the DOJ even wants to limit our free speech when it comes to the vermin muslims.

    This is one minority we can not only live without but increase our quality of life and freedom with their removal from the country.

    It will be very interesting to see if he wears the USA Flag pin on his suit.

    If obamma wants to recognize the contributions made by muslims, he should not forget their role in creating the greatest group of Americans, the USMC.
    If he wants to reaffirm the importance of religious freedom, it should be phrased unequivocal terms that We Americans are free to NOT abide by their rules or law.
    Of course, I do not expect him to remind the muslims of their faults like he does when speaking to Americans or Christians. He will most likely support their belief that they are right to hate America and our way of life, and that the only way to make America great, is to destroy it and rebuild it on as a muslim nation.

    What did Muslims contribute to the USA? Research on how to airplane-proof a high-rise building? Medical research on female genital mutilation?

    Psychological research into the minds of Western nitwits who are bound and determined to defend Muslim savagery, come hell or high water?
