On Wednesday, Barack Obama will travel to Baltimore to visit a mosque as a show of “tolerance” for the “Religion of Peace ™,” and while the move itself is seen as controversial since it’s the first time a sitting president has ever gone to a mosque, a Muslim just revealed a disturbing fact about the whole ordeal.
According to the Washington Times, Obama is set to visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore to show his support for American Muslims, which truly calls into question his loyalties as president. Why? Because the group has known ties to the Islamic Society of North America, which is a Muslim rights group named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a 2008 criminal prosecution surrounding individuals directly connected to Hamas.
But that’s not all. Apparently, the mosque also had an imam who was a leading figure in the Islamist organization the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been named a terror group by numerous counter-terrorism agencies across the globe.
Some past leaders of the mosque are well known to counterterrorism agencies. Mohammad Adam el-Sheikh, an imam who served at the Baltimore mosque for 15 years, most recently in 2003, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan in the 1970s. He also has worked for an Islamic relief group that the Treasury Department designated as a terrorist organization in 2004.
Mr. el-Sheikh also co-founded the Muslim American Society in Falls Church, Virginia, a group controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. His ties were first reported Saturday by The Daily Caller.
Because of its extremist ties, non-radical Muslim groups in America have distanced themselves from the Islamic Society of Baltimore. However, that isn’t stopping Obama from visiting after becoming “alarmed” at perceived anti-Muslim rhetoric and traveling to the mosque to show his support.
According to Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim who is vice chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, Obama’s mosque trip is “insulting” to non-radical Muslims in America, and he’s concerned because Obama’s supporting an “extreme” organization.
“It’s disgraceful that this is the mosque he’s picked to be the first to visit,” Dr. Jasser said on Fox & Friends on Sunday. “This mosque is very concerning. … Historically, they are basically a radical, extreme mosque and not representative of the modern Muslims in America.”
Isn’t that nice? Here you have an actual peaceful Muslim who’s fighting for a just cause telling the world that Obama is supporting a dangerous group, yet Obama’s going ahead with his trip as planned. After repeatedly siding with Muslims over the rest of America, and now his trip to a mosque wit known radical ties, it’s no wonder so many Americans wonder if he’s secretly a closet Muslim working against the best interests of America.
After all, actions speak far louder than words ever could, and his actions thus far paint an entirely different picture than anything he’s ever said.
