Yesterday, President Obama shirked his official duties to pay a visit to a mosque in Baltimore. Now, one disturbing fact about this mosque has come to light that has millions of Americans shocked and appalled by Obama’s actions.
According to Western Journalism, the mosque Obama visited has been under surveillance by the FBI since 2010 due to the radical activities of one of their Muslim members.
“President Obama is conferring legitimacy on a Baltimore mosque the FBI just a few years ago was monitoring as a breeding ground for terrorists, after arresting a member for plotting to blow up a federal building,” wrote Investors Business Daily in an editorial.
“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,” IBD added.
Other conservatives were just as disturbed by this.
“Or maybe he knows all about them, and just doesn’t care — or even actively favors this activity,” added commentator Pamela Geller. “Those are the choices: he is either stupid, which he isn’t, or willfully ignorant, which he is unlikely to be, or simply outright traitorous.”
FBI began their surveillance of the Islamic Society of Baltimore when Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussain, was caught discussing bombing an Army recruitment center with other members of the mosque. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison in 2012.
“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,” IDB quoted FBI special agent Keith Bender as writing.
“It’s now abundantly clear the White House failed to properly vet the venue. 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,” the IBD editorial concluded.
