Not sure why, but I'm not getting what I presume are your images to display, RTH.

Turkey is spending $100 million to build a Mosque here? Fine with me.

Obama and Erdogan to Open New Mosque Together in MarylandBy The Right ScoopA couple of years ago it was reported that Turkey was helping fund the building of a $100 million dollar mega mosque in Lanham, Maryland. In fact Erdogan visited the mosque when he was here in May of 2013, promising to come back for the opening.Well that time has apparently arrived and now Erdogan and Obama will be together at the mosque for the big opening ceremony:The presidents of Turkey and the U.S. will open the Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center in Maryland, Turkey’s foreign minister said Sunday.Mevlut Cavusoglu, on a three-day visit to Washington, visited the center that also has a middle-sized mosque, and lunched with representatives from the American Muslim community.<SNIP>http://nation.foxnews.com/2015/04/20/ob ... r-maryland The "[background=#f7f7f7]Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center"[/background]http://www.taccenter.org/ TURKISH AMERICAN CULTURAL AND CIVILIZATION CENTERhttp://www.transtech.org/portfolio/turkish-ame ... terTurkish American Community Center (TACC), is a non-profit organization based in Lanham, Maryland serving the needs of the Turkish American populace and Muslims in general in the Washington metropolitan area.[1] The organization was established as the Turkish American Islamic Foundation in 1993, and as the scope of services expanded it was renamed in 2003.[2] The center holds regular Friday congregational prayers, Ramadan dinners, religious holiday celebrations (including Birth of Prophet Muhammad) and various other social, cultural, and religious activities.The center underwent a comprehensive construction project. It consists of five main buildings, an underground parking garage, and a geothermal well field on a 15-acre site. The five buildings are a mosque constructed using 16th century classical Ottoman architecture, a cultural center building, a recreational building with a restaurant, a traditional Turkish bath, indoor pool, sports center, and a guest house.[3][4][5][6]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Am ... ity_Center

Mosques sponsered by foreigners











This video needs a lot of debunking. First, Osama bin Laden was in opposition to the type of Wahabism or Salafism that is embraced by the Saudi princes and the region's oil-based governments. They are the ones who have money to sponsor the building of mosques, but mostly it is spent on publications and funding professors and studies in major universities. The majority of mosques are built and supported by whatever immigrant group has settled in the area of the US just as the Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Zoroastrians, Bahai, etc. all re-established whatever type or sect of religion that they had where they came from. The mosques are just a varied as the churches and temples.



To say that they are staffed with clerics of the same type of Wahabism as Osama bin Laden is just the worst kind of fear-mongering falsehood and marks this video as a vicious piece of propaganda sponsored by Islamaphobes.

I tried to quote from this article and the studies showing the claims about the sponsorship and staff by Wahabis to be bunk. For some reason, it would not paste.

Stop Islamization of Texas

Saturday, May 21 at 12 PM in CDT
Next Week
Islamic Da'wah Center 201 Travis St, Houston, TX 77002

:snippity:

The Library of Islamic Knowledge was officially opened last month in downtown Houston.

That's right, just days after sharia law was banned in Texas. The library reportedly cost around $2.5 million. Imagine how much our tax money went to building this shrine to hatred (the very money which could have been spent on vets). Imagine Texas turning in a muslim ghetto full of mosques and "Islamic Knowledge" centers.
It's gettin' real.

What would founding fathers say if they knew we're gonna put up with people who wish to kill us?
That's a disgrace but even more shameful would be doing nothing about it. Join the "Stop Islamization of Texas" protest. Meet us at Islamic Da'wah Center 201 Travis St, Houston, May 21 at 12 pm.

Feel free to bring along your firearms, concealed or not!

:roll:
In reality of course this center was built with private funding not tax money.

This FB event shows 39 going. The Islamic Da'wah Center is located in the heart of downtown Houston on Main Street with the light rail line running right by it. They will be noticed. There is no place for a protest except for the sidewalk unless they plan to trespass on the Center's gated parking lot. There are three Houston Police buildings within a few blocks to the west and to the south. If they try anything police response will be swift.

MEMRI TV Videos wrote: Published on 3 May 2019

On April 22, 2019, the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia (MAS Philly) uploaded a video of an "Ummah Day" celebration to its Facebook page in which young children wearing Palestinian scarves sang: "Glorious steeds call us and lead us [to] the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The blood of martyrs protects us… Take us, oh ships… until we reach our shores and crush the treacherous ones… Flow, oh rivers of martyrs!" A young girl read a poem praising martyrs who sacrificed their lives for Palestine, and she asked: "Will [Jerusalem] be a hotbed for cowards?" Another young girl read: "We will defend [Palestine] with our bodies… We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque… We will subject them to eternal torture." MAS Philly belongs to the Muslim American Society (MAS), which has 42 chapters in the United States and one in the United Kingdom. MAS' website says that its mission is to "move people to strive for God-consciousness, liberty and justice, and to convey Islam with utmost clarity," and that its vision is "a virtuous and just American society."

I'd like another translation. MEMRI is not reliable when it comes to subtitles. The kids could have been singing anything. Or maybe they were singing the islamic equivalent of Onward Christian Soldiers, or Joshua Fought the Battle of Jerico.

Interestingly neither the ADL or CBS have been able to independently verify the translation.

You’d think finding someone that speaks Arabic would be easier. Either way, the fact that they’ve apologized and fired the organizer suggests the translation is accurate.
