Mass. Governor Replaces Boston Bombersí Imam at Prayer Service
FrontPage ^ | April 22, 2013

Posted on 04/22/2013 4:53:15 PM PDT by NYer

Massachusetts Governor Patrick speaks to reporters alongside FBI Special Agent in Charge in Boston DesLauriers in BostonAmericans for Peace and Tolerance is celebrating that Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick rescinded an invitation to the imam of a Muslim Brotherhood-linked mosque to participate in an interfaith prayer service. It is now known that the mosque was attended by the Boston bombers, though it condemns the attack. You can thank Governor Patrick by clicking here.

Imam Suhaib Webb of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center said on twitter that Governor Patrick’s office suddenly disinvited him to the service and he did not know why. The Clarion Project has documented the Muslim Brotherhood links of the ISBCC and its parent mosque, the Islamic Society of Boston.

Imam Webb was replaced by Nasser Wedaddy of the American-Islamic Congress, an organization whose leader participated in a pro-NYPD Muslim rally to counter the influence of Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The organization is also a member of the American Islamic Leadership Coalition. Other members of the coalition include Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, narrator of The Third Jihad, C. Holland Taylor, Jamal Hasan, Tarek Fatah and Raquel Evita Saraswati.

The Islamic Society of Boston had Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, the pro-terrorism spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, as one of its original trustees. In 2008, it was reported that the Muslim Brotherhood and the Pakistani Islamist group, Jamaat-e-Islami, “are the prominent belief systems. The popular websites used by members, and recommended by mosque leaders, are mostly fundamentalist, and rabidly homophobic.”

The Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center is a separate 70,000-square foot, approximately $15 million mosque operated by the Boston chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS). Federal prosecutors said in 2008 that MAS was “founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” A convicted terrorist named Abdurrahman Alamoudi, a founder of the Islamic Society of Boston and admitted U.S. Muslim Brotherhood member, said last year, “Everybody knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The Boston bombers attended the Islamic Society of Boston. A friend of the younger bomber, Dzhokhan Tsarnaev, says he last saw him at the Islamic Society of Boston there during Ramadan. The mosque says that the older brother, Tamerlan, was an “occasional” attendee over the past year and a half. He was kicked out of a prayer service about three months ago after he loudly interrupted the imam for exalting Martin Luther King Jr. He returned to the weekly services without further incident.

The Islamic Society of Boston quickly condemned the Boston bombings. It said it would leave “no stone uncovered in finding any other suspects connected to the bombs.” The Islamic Society of Boston says it opposes “the taking of innocent, non-combatant lives through acts of terrorism or state-sponsored aggression.”

However, it has promoted Islamist themes like the U.S. government is persecuting Muslims and the war on terrorism is actually a war on Islam. The Cultural Center says jihad doesn’t mean holy war but can mean “struggle in the battlefield for self-defense (e.g.-having a standing army for national defense), or fighting against tyranny or oppression.”

Americans for Peace and Tolerance released a video in May 2010 criticizing the Patrick Administration’s embrace of Islamists, including an imam who preached that the FBI was persecuting innocent Muslims and the community must “pick up the gun and sword.” Governor Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino initially embraced the Islamic Society of Boston and attended the grand opening of the Cultural Center.

Patrick’s trip to the Cultural Center was sponsored by Islamic Relief USA. Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley even accepted a $50,000 grant from the Muslim American Society to pay for “sensitivity” training for law enforcement. In January, the Clarion Project discovered that the group has at least four officials with Muslim Brotherhood ties. It was previously found out that its CEO has served as an advisor to the U.S. State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development.

There are many smart people in the world. This Imam is not one of them.

. The left will get themselves and the rest of us killed all in the name of PC.

That's evidently the plan.

"According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.
 
It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.
 
The first stage being "demoralization".
 
It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.
 
Most of the activity of the department [KGB] was to compile huge amount / volume of information, on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion.  Publisher, editors, journalists, uh actors, educationalists, professors of political science.  Members of parliament, representatives of business circles. 
 
Most of these people were divided roughly into two groups:  those who would tow the Soviet foreign policy, they would be promoted to positions of power through media and public manipulation;  [and] those who refuse the Soviet influence in their own country would be character assassinated OR executed physically, come Revolution.  "

......” psychological warfare..... What it basically means is:

...to change the perception of reality of every American that despite the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.”

Political Correctness goes hand in hand with this. ..Words mean what “they” dictate they mean...not what they are...change the vocabulary and you disarm the truth from being heard....where there is no truth there is confusion.

I’m so grateful you posted this NYer....thank you.

I’ve been looking at the Mosques...but more importantly Fox had a guest on who spoke about these Mosques and their group fighting to get the authorities to stop them.

Keep in mind these Mosques were subsidized by Boston. I’ll see if I can find the video of that...raised my attention right away.

Either put operatives into these mosques and start arresting/deporting people in droves, or just arrest everyone that walks up to the door... and deport them in droves.

That we know they’re here and do absolutely nothing is the pinnacle of stupidity and just blows my mind.

----------------

"And there’s the rub: in banning the truth about Islam and jihad, the Obama Administration has opened the door for increased jihad terror activity in the United States. Agents who do not understand the threat they face and are constantly surprised by the places where that threat is coming from will be powerless to stop this jihad activity. And the nation will reap the whirlwind."

“I wonder what Axelrod thinks about this.”

From Axelrod’s brain:

Well the mosque and the Iman did “condemn the attack”

(they just condemned the attack because it did not kill enough and the perps got caught) /joking.

Would this be the "Cultural Center" built on land sold to it by Menino for a song -- land belonging to the Boston Housing Authority? And isn't this the mayor who refused to let Walmart into Boston and was outraged that Chik-fil-A wanted to come to Boston? Liberal Dem priorities . . . :(

That's him - the Machiavellian Mumbles, slimey poltician and Muslim sell-out.

Oops! You’re right — it was land held by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, not the Housing Authority. In any case, though, not Menino’s personal land to sell at far below market value!

It was a valuable investment for Boston. Just look at the diversity it has encouraged. Only in America can a poor Chechen boy grow up to as effective a terrorist as a wealthy Saudi. Only in America are muslim kids able to absorb the jihadists teachings at their local mosque regardless of national or ethnic origin. Only in America can you slaughter innocent people and immediately be defended by liberals wanting to know what America did to provoke such a “cry for help”.
