Video: The $100M Turkish-Funded Mega Mosque in Maryland

A reader wanted to remind us of these foreign-funded mega mosque complex being built in Maryland. Here’s a video tour. It appears to sit in the middle of a residential neighborhood.

The Turkish American Community Center (TACC) currently under construction in Lanham, MD (between I-495/I-95 and Md. Route 193) is a $90 million, multi-use project, built to serve as a community and cultural gathering place. The project consists of five main buildings, an underground parking garage, and a geothermal well field on a 15 acre site. The five buildings, each designed with a unique style, are: a 760 person mosque constructed using 16th century classical Ottoman architecture; a two-story, 19,990 sq.ft Cultural Center Building; a 9,850 sq.ft recreational building; a 43,450 sq.ft traditional Turkish bath, indoor pool, and sports center; and 18,500 sq.ft of guest housing. Much of the campus sits atop a 150,700 sq.ft underground parking garage, providing access to all of the main buildings.As the YouTube video below illuminates, the TACC buildings are framed with a complex array of reinforced concrete elements, including 40-foot wide arches, rigid frames, 210 foot tall minarets, and a massive 80-cubic-yard central dome structure. To create these complicated structures, the project team utilized detailed BIM modeling, unique structural analysis methods, and innovative construction techniques.

In other words, it won’t be brought down easily in times of war.

Do these Americans builders realize how the Turkish president refers to mosques and why he’s building it in such a strategic location?

“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.”

Useful idiots.

 

Texas: Muslim arrested for bomb threats…on North Austin mosque

via Man arrested following business, mosque bomb threats. h/t Atlas

AUSTIN — A man in his 50s is accused of making bomb threats at a Muslim business and the community center where he was staying Tuesday, according to a Travis County arrest affidavit.

According to the Austin Police Department, 54-year-old Azzam Ahmed Baytie made two bomb threats at a North Austin Muslim Community Center and a Middle Eastern-style food truck near the Arab Cowboy Cafe and Hookah Lounge. The community center is in North Austin, and the cafe is located in West Campus.

Staff at the community center called Austin-Travis County EMS just after 7 a.m. Tuesday. They said the man had some kind of medical issue, possibly psychiatric problems.

According to the arrest affidavit, police found Baytie rolling around the ground in front the community center. Baytie told medics he had taken five Ambilify to harm himself, a drug that treats schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression.

On the way to the hospital, police said the man told EMS workers he put bombs at the two locations. Investigators did not find explosive devices at either location.

Officers evacuated about 50 students from the apartment complex behind the cafe in West Campus.

Baytie is charged with terroristic threat, a third-degree felony.

Baytie was previously found guilty of making a terroristic threat and criminal trespassing after a 2008 incident at the same mosque at the North Austin Muslim Community Center. Baytie reportedly told police he had a bomb in his backpack. Authorities scanned the backpack with an X-ray machine and found electronic parts inside, prompting them to destroy the backpack as a precaution.

More, with another misleading media headline, Man charged in bomb threat targeting Muslim community center

Police say Baytie initially told them there was a van at the International Food Market at 10901 North Lamar Blvd. that was going to blow up.

“Baytie then changed the location to the mosque located on North Lamar (which is the North Austin Muslim Community Center) stating it was chloride, ammonia, and C4 in a white, Ford F-150 van at the mosque,” documents say. “He stated the police needed to clear the area all the way to the Texaco station, which is located at 11331 North Lamar Blvd.”

Police say Baytie “committed the offense of terroristic threat and placed the North Austin Muslim Community Center in grave danger by reporting this bomb threat.”

The drive by media and the hate crime hustlers are silent on yet another Muslim crime.

Chapel Hill Shooting Victims’ Mosque Preached Jihad, Hosted Pro-ISIS Cleric in 2013

Yesterday we highlighted the fact that the Chapel Hill shooter wasn’t an anti-Muslim bigot at all, in fact he Defended the Ground Zero Mosque and Islam, and ridiculed those who called Obama a Muslim.

The shooting was quickly wiped from the headlines once they media found out the shooter was a leftist, atheist, pro-gay, Muslim supporter. The narrative was shattered. So away the story went.

But others kept researching those involved in the shooting. Here’s more, via #ChapelHillShooting Victims’ Mosque Hosted Pro-ISIS Cleric in 2013 – GotNews.

Abu-Salha-740x400

The father of two of the victims of the Chapel Hill shooting buried his daughters in a mosque that hosted a ISIS cleric.

Dr. Mohammad Abu-Salha was on the shura council of the Islamic Association of Raleigh (IAR). He may still be on the council today but he isn’t returning requests for comment.

In November 2013 Abu-Salha’s mosque hosted radical ISIS cleric Ahmad Musa Jibril.

In December 2013, federal prosecutors say Jibril sent a direct message on Twitter to a family member of an ISIS fighter from England killed in Syria.

The Dearborn-based, pro-Islamic terrorist Jibril a.k.a. Jebril is one of the most influential ISIS clerics in the West, to a series by Niraj Warikoo.

Why did Jibril come to Abu-Salha’s mosque?

After all, Abu-Salha claimed that Islam doesn’t support terrorism.


Read it all.

Back in 2009, Creeping Sharia posted that the same mosque has hosted jihad-preaching imams, literally, since the 1990s, via North Carolina imam was preaching jihad in the 90’s

In 1994, Baianonie gave several speeches on jihad as imam at the then-named Islamic Center of Raleigh (N.C.).

Recently, seven Raleigh, North Carolina men were arrested on terrorism charges and an arrest warrant is outstanding for an eighth suspect – also from North Carolina. Seven of those men attended Baianonie’s Islamic Association of Raleigh mosque.

In addition, Raleigh’s Muslim American Society (MAS) director, Khalilah Sabra, the spokesperson for the suspected jihadi ringleader, also has a strong connection to jihad. She was recruited to Pakistan by Abdullah Azzam a.k.a. the “godfather of jihad”. As we presented here, Azzam preached the virtues of jihad including “offensive jihad” and was the ideological founder of al Qaeda and a mentor to Osama bin Laden.

From the mosque sermon in the 1990’s:

The way to re-establish the Islamic state as prescribed by Allah (S.W.T) is by giving Da’wah using strong evidence and presenting yourself with patience, perseverance and forgiveness. This is the Jihad that the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) and his companions exercised in Makkah before migrating to Madinah.

This type of forceful jihad descended in three different stages:

The final stage calls for fighting against any obstacle that blocks someone from conveying the word of Allah (S.W.T)….

This Jihad is obligatory till the Day of Judgment and it is the highest honor of Islam. Allah (S.W.T) said in surat Al-Baqarah, (Verse 216), what can be translated as, “Fighting is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and you may like a thing which is bad for you. And Allah knows but you do not know.”

Chicago: Imam resigns, flees U.S. after sex-abuse allegations

via Sex-abuse allegations against Chicago Muslim religious leader roils community – The Washington Post. h/t TROP

Allegations of sexual abuse by the longtime president of a leading Chicago-area Islamic school have roiled the region’s Muslims and raised questions about the reporting of sexual abuse in a close-knit religious community.

The allegations that Abdullah Saleem of the Institute of Islamic Education in Elgin, a Chicago suburb, sexually abused an adult female school employee surfaced in December, when a leading Muslim scholar referred to them in a blog.

Elgin police confirmed Saturday that they are conducting a criminal investigation into allegations of sexual abuse at the school, but spokesman Cmdr. Ana Lalley said she could provide no further details.

Saleem, who has been a respected Muslim leader in Chicago for decades, has not been charged with any crime.

Mohammed Kaiseruddin, chairman of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago , the region’s most influential Muslim umbrella group, said Saleem has resigned from his post and been replaced by his son. He said Saleem left for his native India after the allegations surfaced, and he did not know if he had returned.

“I’ve known him for a very long time; it came as a shock to me,” Kaiseruddin said. “Many people found it unbelievable that he would be accused of something like this. I found it unbelievable, too, until I talked to a few other people and got the same story from all of them. Sometimes our weaknesses lead us to do unbelievable things.”

Numerous attempts to reach school officials for comment were unsuccessful.

While the allegations against Saleem are nowhere near the scale of the sexual-abuse scandal faced in recent years by the Roman Catholic Church, they have raised similar painful questions about the relationship between religious communities and law enforcement officials.

How could one imams actions near the scale of the entire Roman Catholic Church?

Junaid Afeef, a lawyer and Muslim leader in Chicago, said religious and community leaders, especially among the older generation, initially had a “circle-the-wagons” response to the allegations. He said at first they largely ignored them, then chose to investigate them themselves rather than go immediately to the police.

“That’s not their job,” Afeef said. “I wasn’t surprised, but I was a little disappointed.”

“This isn’t the ’80s or the ’90s anymore,” he said. “For a while we insisted on believing that sex abuse and rape don’t happen in our community, because we are Muslims and Muslims don’t do that. But now we know that whatever social ills exists in the broader world, exist in our community, too.”

Odd, imams around the world can be readily found on Youtube stating beating your wife is permitted in Islam as is forcing her to have sex (i.e., rape).

And this guy was as revered as they come in the “Muslim community.” The scale is getting heavier, via the ultra pro-Islam, terorr-defender at the NY Crimes, Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Imam Stir Rifts in Insular Illinois Community:

Over time, she said the touching became more aggressive, reaching a point that she did something almost unheard-of in her community. She told people: her family, a social worker, an Islamic scholar. Recently, she went to the police. As word spread of what she had told them, three other women came forward, telling detectives that as young girls they had been molested by Mr. Saleem.

[….]

The accusations are particularly jarring because of Mr. Saleem’s stature. “In the South Asian community, he is like Billy Graham. He’s the archbishop of Chicago,” said Omer Mozaffar, an Islamic scholar who serves as the Muslim chaplain at Loyola University Chicago and who acted as a mediator between Mr. Saleem and his first accuser last year.


 

Same thing happened in Florida: Head of Islamic school accused of raping middle school girls leaving one needing ‘surgical repair’.

CanadianJihad.ca – For the media too lazy to report on the jihad in Canada (video)

canadian-jihad-logo

CanadianJihad.ca documents public statements made by Canadian imams, Muslim scholars, and Islamic activists who advocate extremist ideas that undermine Canadian principles of freedom, democracy, pluralism, the rule of law, respect for minorities and the separation of mosque and state. In some cases, it shows Muslim leaders actually promoting violence, including murdering infidels.

Now on our blogroll.

If Ezra Levant seemed like he was coming on strong, maybe he was saving some of his best for last. It was reported last night that Sun News Network to cease broadcasting Feb 13, 2015.

 

 

Idaho: Twin Falls Muslims get mosque permit approved…same day

TETONA DUNLAP’s unabashed and unchallenged Islamic propaganda,via Twin Falls Muslims work to educate locals, expand mosque – seattlepi.com.

On Dec. 9, members of the Islamic Center of Twin Falls applied for a special use permit to expand and erect a new building on their site at 455 Addison Ave. The permit was approved the same day.

The next step is to get a building permit. But the nonprofit might need two or three years to raise $200,000 to build its 2,500-square-foot structure, said Imad Eujayl, center spokesman.

Recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Belgium and elsewhere have drawn much attention to Muslims, and stereotypes abound.

Indeed, two Muslims who frequent the Islamic Center here declined to be identified in the Times-News, saying public knowledge of their religion could hurt their business.

But many others said they feel secure in Twin Falls, a city noted for its Refugee Center and constant influx of foreign immigrants. An estimated 1,000 Muslims live in the Magic Valley.

One of their priorities is to enlighten others about the true meaning of Islam.

Local Muslims want their new center to be a place where people can visit and learn about Islam. If an elementary school is learning about Muslims, the center could serve as an educational site, Eujayl said.

Local Muslims have made presentations at Xavier Charter School, Magic Valley High School and the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

Eujayl was a guest speaker at the Magic Valley Arts Council in 2013, addressing cultural diversity in the community and Islam.

“They could learn proper lessons of Islam, not from the media, but from a Muslim,” Eujayl said.

For the past two years, local Bosnian Muslims have gathered to remember more than 8,000 of their countrymen massacred by the Serbs at Srebrenica in 1995. Their remembrance of the genocide is held in a strip mall meeting room off Filer Avenue. The new Islamic Center will hold such events once it is built, Eujayl said.

Eujayl, who was born and raised in Al-Jazeera, Sudan, moved to the U.S. in 1999 and became a citizen in 2005. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agri-science from the University of Al-Jazeera-Sudan and a Ph.D in plant molecular genetics from the University of Helsinki-Finland. Eujayl works in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s research center in Kimberly.


 Refugee Resettlement Blog has more: Construction of new mosque in Twin Falls, ID the result of Muslim refugee influx

You should know at the outset that the refugee program in Idaho is a Wilson-Fish program which means the state of Idaho government itself (including elected officials) have absolutely no say in the program.

In truth, no states can veto anything the feds and their contractors do (I don’t know any that have tried!), it’s just in Wilson-Fish states the secrecy surrounding resettlement is even worse.  Refugee resettlement is a complete abrogation of State’s rights under the US Constitution, but has never been challenged as far as we know.

Transcript:

0:01 A scoop from our Investigation Bureau about

0:05 an important Islamist network with links to terrorist groups here in Québec.

0:10 Félix, it’s two Muslim organizations that own many mosques. In some,

0:14 fundamentalist propaganda is circulating. Yes, both these

0:18 organizations, who were recently suspected of financing

0:22 terrorism, have quietly become the most important owners

0:26 of Islamic schools and mosques in Québec.

0:31 And here are the results of our investigation.

0:35 Who owns the mosques and Islamic schools in Québec?

0:39 The most important building owners are two Islamist

0:43 organizations suspected by the RCMP, the FBI and

0:47 Revenue Canada of involvement in

0:51 terrorism financing.

0:55 The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) and the Islamic

0:59 Society of North America host seven mosques and four

1:03 private schools in Montréal, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières.

1:07 Two of these schools are funded by the Dept. of Education.

1:14 Who are these organizations?

1:18 The MAC supports the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood

1:22 and its founder Hassan Al Banna.

1:42 mostly on ideas that are against modernity and

1:46 democracy. Wael Saleh is Muslim. He cofounded the

1:50 Inter-disciplinary Observatory of Islamic Movements.

1:54 ”We must act before a catastrophe occurs.”

2:00 The Islamic Society of North America, who publicly

2:04 denounced the attacks in Paris, is the

2:08 most important Muslim society in North America.

2:10 Revenue Canada revoked its funding

2:14 affiliate’s registration as a charity in 2013.
