Turkey Builds a Super Mosque in Maryland

The Super Mosque of Maryland

Better Wake Up America
Symbol of Islamic Conquest In Maryland
  • The Islamist Turkish Prime Minister lectures Americans about "Islamophobia" while preventing the building of Christian churches in Turkey. 

A 100-million-dollar mosque in Maryland is slated to be “the largest and most striking examples of Islamic architecture in the western hemisphere.” Conquest.

A request to build a Christian church in Turkey’s capital of Ankara (where none exists) was denied by the Erdogan government. Instead, another mosque will be built where the church had requested permission to build. So I ask you, is this mega-mosque a “symbol of friendship” (their taqiyya) or a symbol of conquest? says Atlas Shrugs.

School me in that interfaith dialogue and mutual respect again.

Last week’s Islamic celebration ceremony was attended by Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who welcomed guests representing the Muslim Brotherhood groups, “Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA),” the “Islamic Society of North America,” and several other U.S. Hamas affiliates.

Rumor has it that Governor O’Malley is considering a Presidential run in 2016. President Obama was invited, but between scandalapalooza and tee-off times, he was unable to attend.

Insulting the United States
Prime Minister Erdogan talks about what the TACC center means to Turkish Americans.  He criticized groups promoting Islamophobia and urged the many Turkish graduate students to get involved with the project.  At the same time the Prime Minister prevents the building of Christian churches in Turkey.

It’s an alarming story unlikely to receive coverage in the mainstream media, however, a nonprofit dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamic extremism has posted information about the project on its website. The $100 million mega mosque will be erected in Lanham Maryland and is expected to “become the largest and most striking example of Islamic architecture in the western hemisphere” when it is finished in 2014 reports Judicial Watch.

The massive facility, which will be called Turkish American Culture and Civilization Center, will span 15 acres and will feature five buildings, including a mosque “constructed using sixteenth century Ottoman architecture that can hold 750 worshipers.” It will be a place that will help counter an epidemic of “Islamophobia” in the United States, according to Turkish government officials who recently visited the construction site. The delegation was led by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose goals include increasing Islamist influence in America.

Greeting Erdogan, who is transforming Turkey from a secular democracy to an Islamist state, on his recent visit to Maryland were leaders of two entities of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas and al Qaeda. They include Naeem Baig, president of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

A U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo cited in the story lists ICNA as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo says its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” The memo even refers to meetings with ICNA where there was talk about a merger. ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator in the nation’s largest Islamic terror funding case, is a renowned U.S. Muslim Brotherhood front group.

This is hardly the first time Turkey’s increasingly radical government tries to infiltrate the United States. The same terrorism watchdog group that exposed this outrageous mosque project also wrote about a network of Turkish charter schools, called Fethullah Gulen, being investigated by the FBI.

It’s the largest charter school network in America and is a critical component in Turkey’s transformation from a secular democracy to an Islamic state.

Incredibly, the Obama administration gives radical Turkish government officials free reign in the United States. During the recent visit to the mosque construction site in Maryland, Erdogan’s deputy prime minister, Bülent Arınç, slipped away from the delegation for a day, according to a newspaper that covers Turkish affairs abroad. Arınç reportedly visited an “Islamic scholar” who lives in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania.

Turkish Islamists attack ‘kissing protest’
  • Freedom of thought and freedom of religion do not exist under Islam.

Islamists attacked a group of kissing couples who locked lips in a Turkish metro station to protest a morality campaign by the authorities in Ankara, the local press reported on Sunday.

One person was stabbed when about 20 Islamists chanting “Allah Akhbar (God is Greatest) and some carrying knives attacked the demonstrators on Saturday, the Milliyet and Hurriyet newspapers reported.

About 200 people staged the kissing protest after officials in the Ankara municipality, which is run by Turkey’s ruling Islamist-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP), admonished a young couple for kissing in the street reports Al Arabiya.

Turkey is predominantly Muslim but staunchly secular, although the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has introduced several measures opponents see as a sign of the creeping Islamization of the country, including restrictions on alcohol.

On Saturday, dozens of couples have locked lips at a subway stop in Ankara, to protest subway authorities' admonishment of a couple that kissed in public.

Turkish media say that, earlier in the week, Ankara subway officials made an announcement asking passengers "to act in accordance with moral rules" after security cameras spotted the couple kissing.

The issue prompted an opposition lawmaker to question the Islamist-rooted ruling party, which many secularists fear wants to expand the role of Islam in Turkey, about whether subway officials were authorized to make such demands.

Some 100 people in the station kissed for several minutes in protest Saturday. Demonstrators carried signs reading "Free Kisses" and chanted slogans.

A pro-Islamist group of some 20 people staged a counter-protest. Police set up barricades between the groups.

Secular supporters of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the first President of modern Turkey.  Atatürk believed religion and government needed to be separated.
