As Creeping Sharia noted a year ago, Obama accepts offer to open Turkish mega-mosque in Maryland.
America’s largest mosque complex, officially known as Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center, was built with Turkish funding under the supervision of the Turkish religious foundation (Diyanet). The $100 million mega mosque in Lanham, Maryland, will soon be open for Muslim worshipers in the Washington, DC area, as Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdoğan and US President Barack Obama are expected to open the mosque.
The same Turkish rag words it slightly differently here: Erdoğan to open first US double-minaret mosque
The $100 million mega-mosque in Maryland, US will soon be open in the Washington, DC area, as Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdoğan is expected to open the mosque during his official visit to the US between March 29 and April 2.
America’s largest mosque complex, officially known as the Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center, was built with Turkish funding under the supervision of the Turkish religious foundation (Diyanet).
Almost all $100 million for the mosque was funded by the Religious Affairs and the Religious Foundation of Turkey.
The mosque is part of the Turkish-Islamic Center also known as the “American Religious Center,” built on a large area in Lanham, Maryland that will have the capacity to host 3,000 Muslim worshippers indoors and outdoors.
In addition to the mosque, the complex will also include a community building, a guest house, traditional Turkish houses, library, conference and exhibition halls, meeting rooms and reception area.
The complex, which also includes a museum of Islamic art, was built according to 16th century architecture.
The ISIS-supporting 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.”
It appears to sit in the middle of a residential neighborhood.
Meanwhile, in Turkey, where ISIS and other Muslim terror groups train and shelter:
The Obama administration ordered the families of U.S. military and diplomatic personnel to leave parts of southern Turkey on Tuesday and warned U.S. citizens against travel to the region amid mounting security concerns.
