2,800 U.S. mosques called ‘ticking time bombs’

(CHRISTIAN ACTION NETWORK) — By Jonah Hicap

The estimated 2,800 mosques in the United States are “ticking time bombs” for Islamic terrorism, according to experts.

All U.S. states have at least one mosque each with California and New York topping the list with more than 500 mosques followed by Texas with more than 300, WND reported.

The report said as the number of mosques increases, Islamic terrorist acts also increase in the U.S.

The problem lies in the mosque, experts said.

According to Dr. Mark Christian, president and founder of the Global Faith Institute, about 80 percent of the 2,800 U.S. mosques are under the supervision of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose goal is to make nations comply with Shariah law.

“You have a new mosque opening every week in America,” said Christian, a former Muslim who converted to Christianity.

Christian, living in Nebraska under the threat of a fatwa, explained that FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies don’t understand the source of Islamic violence.

For years, he said, they study links between Muslims and al-Qaeda or Islamic State when they should be looking into mosques and learning about Quran and hadiths.

Christian said what is being taught in majority of Muslim nations is spiritual salvation.

“The problem is you have law enforcement agents walking into a mosque but they are looking for the wrong thing,” he said. “They are trying to monitor mosques (back when they were allowed to do that before President Obama) to try to find dirt and what they will find [are] people seeking spiritual salvation, something all of us will look at as an honorable thing, but they are missing the ticking bomb.”

He said the key is how a Muslim finds his salvation.

Christian said the common thing among the 9/11 hijackers, the Boston bombers, the Chattanooga shooter, the attackers on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, and the Paris and Brussels’ attackers, is that they are a group of young men whose lifestyles were not pious.

They were not practising the five pillars of Islam which all good Muslims must observe.

He said there are Muslims who have fallen away from the faith and are considered sinners looking for a way out.

Christian said the mosque provides the vital link “from sinner to salvation” for the Muslim and their imam will offer two choices.

He said the facial expressions of the suicide bombers who targeted the Brussels airport provided clues to their motivation.

“The confidence you see of those guys walking calmly to their own death as they push their carts, they are not trying to blow up the airport to make the ISIS leader proud any more than the 9/11 terrorists were flying their planes into a building so they can make Osama bin-Laden proud,” he said. “They are doing it to please their own Allah so they can gain salvation.”

He said the mosque is the central part in the cycle of terrorism as it links the sinner and terrorist.

“He walks in as a sinner who has neglected his spiritual duties under Islam and is told this is what you need to do,” he said. “The imam does not tell him to go blow himself up, he just shows him the life of Muhammad and says this is what you need to emulate.”

‘Sophisticated network’ of radical mosques in U.S. aspire ‘to implement Shariah governance, establish a global Islamic caliphate’

(WND) — French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve called for the “dissolution” of radical mosques following last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Belgium’s Prime Minister, Charles Michel threatened similar action in his country where the attacks were staged.

Neither President Obama nor other officials in his administration, however, have spoken of shutting down radical mosques in the U.S. But U.S. reticence about taking actions now being implemented by France and Belgium isn’t for a lack of mosques in this country in which hatred for American values and support for jihad terrorism are regularly heard.

There are more than 80 radical mosques are in the U.S., according to the Clarion Project, a non-profit group that describes itself as “dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamist extremism.”

Using Clarion’s definitions, The Daily Caller News Foundation has mapped these radical mosques in an effort to aid readers seeking to understand the extent of radical Islamic voices in this country.

These mosques or their leading clerics have radicalized attendees to become terrorists, supported terrorist organizations, made radical Islamist remarks or hosted others that have, or are financially backed by radical individuals or organizations.

“Islamist extremists have developed a sophisticated network of interconnected organizations across America,” according to Clarion. “The common thread among these organizations is their ideology of political Islam, which aspires to implement Shariah governance and to establish a global Islamic caliphate.”

The FBI declined to tell The DCNF if the nation’s top law enforcement agency has a similar list.

The map includes 83 – or nearly 4 percent – of the 2,106 mosques in the United States as of 2010.

Mosques from Clarion Project’s list were excluded if The DCNF could not verify their addresses. These include Islamist communes like Islamberg in New York.

Several mosques on the Clarion Project’s list stand out.

Dar al-Hijrah, located just outside Washington in Falls Church, Virginia, for example, was the place of worship for two of the 9/11 hijackers. This mosque’s present Imam, Shaker Elsayed, described Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna’s teachings as “the closest reflection of how Islam should be in this life.” The Brotherhood “seeks to implement Shariah-based governance globally,” according to the Clarion Project.

Al Qaeda leader threatens: ‘The U.S. doesn’t know what’s coming its way.’

(BROOKINGS INSTITUTE via NEWSWEEK) — After an unprecedented 11 months of silence, Ayman al-Zawahiri, the emir of Al Qaeda, this week issued a video message proclaiming his loyalty to the new head of the Afghan Taliban, Mullah Akhtar Mansoor. The almost 10-minute long message dramatically reaffirms the alliance between Al Qaeda and the Taliban, a setback for efforts to bring the Taliban into a political process.

The video was released by Al Qaeda’s media arm As-Sahab, meaning “in the clouds” or an allusion to the jihadi symbolism that Al Qaeda operates in the mountains of the Hindu Kush.

According to the Pakistan newspaper Dawn, As-Sahab recently relocated its real ground game from Pakistan (where it has been operating since 2002) back to Afghanistan in Helmand province. The Afghan Taliban supported the move and provides safe haven for Al Qaeda, which means 14 years after Operation Enduring Freedom began, Al Qaeda is again running operations out of Afghanistan.

Al-Zawahri’s message underscores that Al Qaeda remains close to the Taliban. According to Dawn, a senior As-Sahab official, Qari Abu Bakr, said “the bond between us and our Taliban brothers is a solid ideological bond. The Taliban opted to lose their government and family members just to protect us. There is no question of us moving apart now after going through this war together.” In a warning to the United States, he says, “Our common enemy does not know what is coming its way.”

In his new message, al-Zawahri eulogizes Mullah Mohammad Omar, the founder of the Taliban, as a hero of the global jihad along with Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Mullah Omar is lauded by al-Zawahri for creating the first true Islamic emirate since the fall of the Ottoman Empire a century ago. He makes no mention of reports Mullah Omar died two years ago in a Pakistan hospital in Karachi under the protection of the Pakistani intelligence service, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
