Govt of Turkey Building Massive $100M Mosque Complex…in Maryland

Was this the real reason Erdogan was in the U.S. last week?

Erdogan was jailed for inciting Muslims when he stated:

“The minarets are our bayonets; the domes are our helmets. Mosques are our barracks, the believers are soldiers. This holy army guards my religion. Almighty, Our journey is our destiny, the end is martyrdom.”

On Wednesday, May 15, 2013, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan placed a ceremonial stone on a 15-acre construction site in Lanham, Maryland that will likely become the largest and most striking examples of Islamic architecture in the western hemisphere.

The Turkish American Culture and Civilization Center (TACC) is a project of the government of Turkey and is meant to”serve as a social, cultural, and religious  center for all visitors, including activities for the promotion and introduction of the values of the Turkish Civilization” according to an information packet distributed by TACC at the invitation only ground breaking ceremony.

The project is well underway, and two industrial cranes tower over the skyline along Good Luck Road. Concrete and steel pillars are up, and even two small domes are already visible. TACC leaders estimate the complex will be completed by October 2014.

The cost of the 5-buidling complex is estimated to be around $100 million according to sources familiar with the engineering aspects of the project. The entire complex will be serviced by an underground garage.

Prime Minister Erdogan talks about what the TACC center means to Turkish Americans as well as to American society at large. He criticized groups promoting Islamophobia and urged the many Turkish graduate students to get involved with the project. He also delighted the crowd of several hundred guests by saying he will come back for the October 2014 opening ceremony “if he is still around”. Photo by Muslim Link.

PrimeMinister9 The TACC Center will consist of five main buildings: a masjid constructed using 16th century classical Ottoman architecture that can hold 760 worshipers; a two-story, 19,990 SF Cultural Center Building including a 220-seating performance hall; a 9,850 SF recreational building with a 180-seat restaurant and traditional coffee shop; a 43,450 SF traditional Turkish bath for up to 22 people at a time and indoor pool and sports center; and 18,500 SF of guest housing including 16 one-bedroom apartment units. The complex will have very limited above ground parking and most cars will park in the 150,700 SF underground parking garage which gives direct access to all the main buildings. A few traditionally designed residential buildings, Turkish gardens and fountains, and outdoor recreational areas will also be a part of the complex. Images courtesy of TACC.

Note the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood was in attendance with dhimmi politicians who bend over backwards for them (follow the money).

Maryland is quickly being overtaken. If this Turkish sharia complex is ” largest and most striking examples of Islamic architecture in the western hemisphere,” it is competing with this Maryland mosque complex dubbed the Largest Islamic Project in America that could change landscape for years to come” (on the 66-acre former home of the Woodmont Academy, a Catholic school in Cooksville).

Why are we letting the Saudi’s and Turks build huge mosques all over the United States? They will be used against us.

Beck asks: Did the father of a radical Islamist travel to the White House with the Turkish PM?

  1. And there we have it, The friggin subots are building military bases ,yea they call them Multicultural centers, with which to launch jihad within cities of America and they are all smiling and clapping because the American people are too stupid to realize it.Right up until a group shows up at their houses to drag their daughters out of the house to rape them right out on the front lawn and mom is next.

    And there is Iman Obama shaking hands with this scumbag from Turkey. Didn’t we just help this turd protect his border to Syria? And now he is building this pillar of Islam . Of course he is going to squelch any opposition as Islamaphobia. The prick is just as much from a Islamic state as Obama is.

  2. Seems Turkey would better spend $100 mil to defend their boarders from Syria….or start repaying US money given them for same purpose. If Islam is in truth a religion of peace why are Christians by the thousands leaving areas of the world where that religion is pursecuting them.

  3. “Why are we letting the Saudi’s and Turks build huge mosques all over the United States? They will be used against us.”

    To ‘CS’ – Your rhetorical question finds it’s heinous and demented answer in the first photo-op that you have presented above in this blog. Just look at the triumphant expression of glee on BHO’s face!

    ‘NUFF SAID!!!!! OMG! OMG! OMG!!!!!

  4. It’s odd that Erdogan is spending Turkish (and other) sourced money in the US when there are any number of historic, original Ottoman structures in great need of repair, many irreplaceable once lost.

    Where is the similar investment in the infrastructure of Turkey, in the whole nation, not just the few big cities?

  5. We are giving foreign aid to Turkey all along,and payed a lot to have a base for a while there. OK, we shall build a large complex of Christian Churches,Synagoges, and fancy Cathedrals there and any Muslim Country,NO MOR MOSQUES IN OUR COUNTRY, LET US UNITE PEACEFULLY AND DEMAND UNLESS WE CAN BUILD IN THEIR COUNTRY AND THEIR TERRITORY. OBAMA ARE YOU REALLY CHRISTIAN ? Than act as one in our countries interest equality to all religions, atheists, humans and full democracy and speech.

    • The scripture says you know a sister or brother in Christ because they are transformed, new, and you will see fruit.

      Hussein Sotero shows none of that.

  6. I’ve met multiplied hundreds of Christians both BC AND AC! Trust me, BHO AIN’T NO CHRISTIAN!!!!! But you could argue that he makes a good imposter and a LIAR!!!!!

  7. Paragraph writing is also a excitement, if you be acquainted with
    afterward you can write otherwise it is complicated to
    write.

  8. “The minarets are our bayonets; the domes are our helmets. Mosques are our barracks, the believers are soldiers. This holy army guards my religion. Almighty, Our journey is our destiny, the end is martyrdom.”

    I have heard lefties say that Turkey is a moderate muslim country when I have told them that it is not.

    What fools….

  9. Interesting that they would build that mosque on farmland where many varieties of livestock were raised including pigs/hogs. Did they not research the land back in history?

    • That just goes to show that they use the tenants of their ideology when it suits them. They use their belief that pigs and pork are dirty when they want to use it in an assault charge when I smash a pork chop on the face of some raging Muslim crying that he can’t pray in school(But we can’t either, why should he?) And yet when they want to put up a military base disguised as a “Community Interfaith Center” it’s okay that pigs were raised and slaughtered there.

  10. More Bull Shit from Obama who will more than ever be a member of that mosk

  11. there is no such thing as interfaith dialogue with the muzzies; read the muslim brotherhood general strategic goal for the usa; they are moving right along with their plans. the money is probably from the foreign aid we send them; what a crock of bullshit.

  12. Impeach Obama; has he ever supported Christianity or any other non-muslim projects; he listened to the rev wright because he is just like the rev; he hates the USA and proves it everyday he is president. impeach the bastard.
