  • Hamas Using Mosques as Front for Terrorism

    Hamas has been hiding its headquarters and arsenals in a new type of building, a special report from the Center for Intelligence and Counterterrorism revealed Tuesday. Mosques and minarets in Gaza have been converted to centers of war, according to the report, which was penned after Hamas officials leveled accusations against Israel after the Israeli Air Force (IAF) struck the mosque in the Alfaruk Nuseirat “refugee camp” in central Gaza. According to Israeli sources, the mosque was used as a compound for Hamas to plan and launch attacks, guard weapons, host training camps, and harbor terrorists. Hamas officials claim that...

    ISIS is leaving a path of destroyed churches, shrines and mosques in its wake as it storms across Syria and Iraq, and has even set its sights on Mecca -- Islam's holiest site. The nihilistic jihadis, led by self-proclaimed descendant of Prophet Muhammad Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, have already bulldozed or blown up some of the most sacred places in Iraq, and seem bent on killing and destroying anyone or anything that does not measure up to their twisted vision of Islam. Experts say the group, which originally stood for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, but now simply calls itself "Islamic...

    Candidate Bill de Blasio was “deeply troubled” by NYPD surveillance of mosques, and now his police commissioner is dropping the program. Matt Apuzzo and Joseph Goldstein report ion the New York Times: The New York Police Department has abandoned a secretive program that dispatched plainclothes detectives into Muslim neighborhoods to eavesdrop on conversations and built detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped, the department said. The decision by the nation’s largest police force to shutter the controversial surveillance program represents the first sign that William J. Bratton, the department’s new commissioner, is backing away from some of the post-9/11 intelligence-gathering practices...

    Even as the Obama administration denounced what it called anti-gay legislation in Arizona and the president sat out the Sochi Olympics because of Russia’s crackdown on same-sex couples, the State Department allowed an Islamic preacher who called for the death penalty for homosexuals into the country for a tour of hate.

    Jihad: In a major victory for homeland security and a major blow to Islamist apologists, a judge has ruled the NYPD's surveillance of mosques was a lawful effort to prevent terrorism, not a civil rights violation. Several radical Islamist front groups — including the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Muslim Students Association — accused the NYPD of violating their civil rights through a post-9/11 program that included infiltrating and monitoring mosques to gather intelligence on jihadists and disrupt terror plots. In 2011 they sued the police department to kill the program and collect damages. On Friday, a federal judge killed their lawsuit instead....

    A mosque recently moved into a former church building on the northeast side of Wheaton, becoming what is believed to be the city's first Islamic institution. In late August, the Islamic Center of Wheaton bought and moved into the 26,193-square-foot former First Assembly of God Church at 900 E. Geneva Road, at the southwest corner of Geneva Road and President Street. Records show that, through a bank trust, the Islamic Center of Wheaton paid $3.15 million for the church and its 7.08-acre property. Mosque spokesman Abraham Antar said he and his fellow congregants are excited about their new home, which...

    Moscow — No more mosques will be built in Moscow, despite the huge crowds that swamp the city's four public mosques on Muslim holidays, because they are mainly used by temporary workers, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has decided. In an interview with the daily Komsomolskaya Pravda on Wednesday, Mr. Sobyanin said that Moscow has about two million foreign residents, the vast bulk of them migrant workers from former Soviet Central Asia who are mainly Muslim. The city's economy "could not manage without them," he admitted. But he insisted that the vast throngs of Muslims who fill Moscow streets and wait,...

    Several weeks ago I posted a piece on FrontPage Mag entitled “The Muslims Are Coming!” about a recent documentary following a troupe of Muslim standup comics as they toured the country, enlightening all the middle-American clods who have somehow gotten the crazy impression that Islam poses a threat. I harshly attacked this concept; my take was that the world has an Islam problem, not an Islamophobia problem, and that claiming otherwise and slapping a happy face on the issue is insulting and pointless. The film’s producer and co-director Dean Obeidallah, who is also one of the featured comedians, unsurprisingly took...

    Last year, the AP reported in a Pulitzer Prize-winning series that the NYPD has been carrying out a vast and covert surveillance operation on New York and New Jersey’s Muslim communities. The NYPD were shown to have investigated and surveilled thousands of innocent muslims. New documents reveal that the police department specifically designated a number of entire mosques as “terror organizations,” to enable greater surveillance. Lawsuits from the ACLU and other civil liberties groups contend that the tactics are at base unconstitutional, since a person can be treated as a potential terror suspect simply by virtue of attending a designated...

    After 9/11, Mosques Popping Up Across America By Julio Severo Does Islamic terror bring mosque growth? The fact is that after the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks, many new mosques are popping up across the United States, and this growth defies logic and contrasts with the church growth movement, which had not connection to terror. Virginia Beach, the famous headquarters of Christian Broadcasting Network and its equally famous “The 700 Club,” is now poised for its first mosque, the Crescent Community Center.

Beckel’s comments came in reaction to a story about an Islamic militant group called Boko Haram, which is suspected of having killed dozens of children at a school in Nigeria in a gruesome fashion this past weekend. “These guys are murderers,” Beckel asserted. “They’re terrorists.

The surveillance by the NYPD's intelligence division has extended beyond New York City's five boroughs into neighboring New Jersey and other nearby states. The police department says that surveillance of Muslims is legal under an earlier federal court order. The lawsuit is the latest skirmish in an ongoing battle between the NYPD and civil liberties advocates over the department's aggressive policing tactics - including...

    If you've ever had the great fortune of seeing the entrance to a mosque, you'll have noticed that there are two doors: one, the main, huge, is for men, another, small and lateral, for women (as in the picture below of the East London Mosque). Apparently we need "right-wing groups" now in England to protest sexism, because the Left totally condones it. The recently-formed England National Resistance (ENR) felt outraged that the North West Kent Muslim Association’s mosque in Crayford High Street has separate entrances for men and women. Particularly offensive is the fact that this was once a church,...

It’s also a problem of foreigners who are admitted legally but should never have been admitted, and of others admitted legally on a visa but are not tracked to make sure they depart when their visitor’s time expires, as U.S. law requires. For starters, why would our government have admitted the Tsarnaev family whose son was named Tamerlan? That should have been a red alert because that is the name of one of the world’s...

This juxtaposed with the United States investing millions to refurbish mosques as a good-will effort in Muslim countries has upset many taxpayer groups.

    <p>Visit Globalinfidel.tv.</p> <p>Why is it such a big deal that a Muslim community is simply trying to build a house of worship?</p> <p>Let’s start with a little math.  Murfreesboro, TN has just over 100,000 residents.  According to estimates provided by the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, there are 200 to 300 Muslim families living in the area.  When they announced their plans to build a 53,000 square foot mega mosque, a lot of questions came up.  One subject of concern was why they needed such a huge compound for so few families.  What is particularly disconcerting is that, according to their own documents (attached 2009 annual report) the ICM only has 45 active paying member families.  Naturally this begs another question – who is paying for this massive compound?</p>

    More than 250 mosques across Italy have reached an agreement to create a new umbrella organization, the Italian Islamic Confederation (CII).The CII will be controlled by Morocco, and will compete with an existing Muslim umbrella organization, the Union of Islamic Communities and Organizations in Italy (UCOII).The UCOII, which is estimated to control 60% of the mosques in Italy, is closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.Since its founding in 1990, the UCOII has used its virtual monopoly over the mosques in Italy to spread its Islamist ideology over the 1.5 million Muslims in the country. The UCOII has also worked to...

    In the last five years I have personally visited over 250 Islamic Centers, Mosques, and Islamic Schools throughout America. The goal of my research has been to determine what Islamic leaders are teaching the young and innocent Muslim children. The findings are abhorrent, sad, unbelievable, frightening, and most disturbing is the fact our government is keeping this dangerous fact from the American people. Muslim children attending mosques and Islamic schools are being taught to hate America, our government, our military personnel, and its non Muslim population. In this article I will identify three significant mosques in America that are leading...

    Washington, D.C., December 14, 2011 – Perspectives on Terrorism, recently released a comprehensive study on violence-advocating texts in American mosques titled Sharia Adherence Mosque Survey: Correlations between Sharia Adherence and Violent Dogma in U.S. Mosques. The Shariah Adherence Mosque Survey found that 80% of U.S. mosques provide their worshippers with jihad-style literature promoting the use of violence against non-believers and that the imams in those mosques expressly promote that literature. The study also found that when a mosque imam or its worshippers were “sharia-adherent,” as measured by certain behaviors in conformity with Islamic law, the mosque was more likely to...

    PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit is reviewing a religious discrimination complaint against a community for denying a zoning change request to allow construction of a Muslim school. The Michigan Islamic Academy wants to build at a 26-acre site in Washtenaw County's Pittsfield Township. "We are reviewing the matter and whether to proceed with a formal investigation," Assistant U.S. Attorney Judith Levy told The Detroit News (http://bit.ly/soyS41 ) for a story Tuesday. On Oct. 26, the township board rejected the request, following an earlier rejection by the township planning commission. School officials say the 200-student school...
