FBI Posts Surveillance Team Outside Radical Mosque… Guess Who Just Went Inside
The Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque has been under surveillance by the FBI since 2010.
“(T)he FBI had been conducting surveillance at the Islamic Society of Baltimore since at least 2010 when it collared one of its members for plotting to bomb an Army recruiting center not far from the mosque in Catonsville, Maryland,” Investor’s Business Daily explained.
That’s the same mosque that President Barack Obama chose to visit and speak at on Tuesday.
The arrested mosque member, Antonio Martinez, aka Muhammad Hussain, reportedly wanted to punish U.S. Army personnel for killing his Islamic brothers and sisters in the Middle East. He was later charged and sentenced to 25 years in prison.
The radical mosque reportedly also has ties to terrorist groups. Specifically, the Islamic Society of Baltimore is affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America, which itself has been identified as a front for both the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.
Moreover, the mosque was previously led for 15 years by Imam Mohamad Adam el-Sheikh, a radical cleric who once reportedly argued in favor of suicide bombings.
Yet Obama chose this radical mosque under FBI surveillance anyway, primarily to appease the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
“For a number of years we’ve been encouraging the president to go to an American mosque,” a CAIR spokesperson said. “With the tremendous rise in anti-Muslim sentiment in our country, we believe that it will send a message of inclusion and mutual respect.”
If Obama desired to showcase his respect for radical Islamic terrorists, then I suppose he made the right choice. He also made the right choice if he simply felt more comfortable around terrorists, as 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump insinuated.
“I don’t know … maybe he feels comfortable there,” Trump said to Fox News host Greta Van Susteren on Wednesday, according to The Hill. “There are a lot of places he can go, and he chose a mosque.”
Actually, he chose a radical mosque that has been under investigation since 2010, and this choice spoke volumes.
