On Wednesday, Barack Obama visited a Baltimore mosque to show tolerance for the Islamic faith and demand the rest of America do the same. But there was a major issue with his choice in mosques, and now it’s getting some major attention.
Apparently, ever since 2010, the mosque has been under FBI surveillance, thanks to one of its members plotting to blow up a federal building. So Obama attempted to give legitimacy to a mosque that’s pretty much a breeding ground for terrorists, as an editorial from Investors Business Daily revealed.
Saba Ahmed: “President Obama came to this mosque to cultivate Muslim-American voters for the upcoming presidential election.”Brooke Goldstein: “Speaking at a terror-affiliated mosque is not how you cultivate the Muslim-American community, unless you think all Muslim-Americans are sympathetic to terror.” bit.ly/1X4Bl9O

“The mosque that is hosting the commander in chief, while receiving his historic benediction graduated a terrorist who plotted to blow up a local Army recruiting station, hired an imam who condoned suicide bombings and blames American ‘foreign policy’ for terrorism. Obama has to be willfully blind not to see all these ties to terror.”
According to the editorial, the surveillance on the Islamic Society of Baltimore began in 2010, when Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussain, and others engaged in a plot to blow up an Army recruiting center.
“He indicated that if the military continued to kill their Muslim brothers and sisters, they would need to expand their operation by killing U.S. Army personnel where they live,” IBD quoted FBI special agent Keith Bender as writing in his report. IBD also reported that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) chose the site Obama went to, even though the FBI banned CAIR from outreach efforts.
“It’s now abundantly clear the White House failed to properly vet the venue,” the IBD editorial said. “Reportedly, it let the Council on American-Islamic Relations choose the site, even though the FBI has banned CAIR from outreach because of known ties to the Hamas terrorist group.”
