On February 3, Barack Obama will visit the mosque at the Islamic Society of Baltimore where he will, hopefully hear the Muslim call to prayer, “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth.”
This mosque, perhaps unsurprisingly, has established ties to terrorism.
Via The Washington Times:
The Islamic Society of Baltimore had an imam who was a leading figure in the extremist Muslim Brotherhood. The organization also is connected to the Islamic Society of North America, a Muslim civil rights group named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a 2008 criminal prosecution in which several individuals were convicted of funneling money to the terrorist group Hamas.
Some past leaders of the mosque are well known to counterterrorism agencies. Mohammad Adam el-Sheikh, an imam who served at the Baltimore mosque for 15 years, most recently in 2003, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan in the 1970s. He also has worked for an Islamic relief group that the Treasury Department designated as a terrorist organization in 2004.
And The Daily Caller
An imam who served at ISB for a total of 15 years has also been a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood network and has worked for an Islamic relief group that was designated as a terrorist organization by the Treasury Department in 2004.
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.
This is a recurring pattern with Democrat politicians pandering to Muslims. They invariably choose a mosque that has strong ties to terrorism either at home or abroad. What is the problem? Aren’t there any mosques without terrorism ties to visit?
