Posted on 06/16/2009 10:31:45 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
A poor, agrarian, landlocked country in South America with a nearly 100 percent Christian population is hardly the place one would expect to become a hotbed of Islamic extremism in the Western Hemisphere.
But a recent report by the Open Source Center (OSC) of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence says it's so. ....
One Muslim leader named in the OSC report is Mahmud Amer Abusharar, founder of the Centro Islamico Boliviano (CIB) in Santa Cruz. Abusharar emigrated from the Palestinian territories in 1974 and claims to have built Bolivias first mosque in 1994 so that he would not lose touch with his religion.
But public statements by Abusharar and other members of his mosque reveal clear anti-US sentiments. In a 2007 interview with a local Bolivian university, Abusharar told a student that he didnt know Muslims in jail who werent there especially due to the United States influence in Bolivian politics. The CIBs Web site also posts an article by its administrative director, Isa Amer Quevedo, that rebukes the U.S. for launching an attack on the Taliban after 9/11, stating: Today we see the U.S. declaring armed Jihad against terrorism. They aim their bombs at UBL and Afghanistan, whom they financed and trained.
The CIB is also the Bolivian headquarters for the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), a Saudi-based major fundraiser for the Muslim community. According to U.S. State Department documents, one of its regional offices in Northern Virginia was raided by the FBI in connection with terrorist activities in 2004.

More good news. :(
The cancer keeps metastasizing.
As if they haven’t heard this for thirty years and ignored it.
When will the world wake up? Islam is not a benign religion, and its aim is the conversion of all people to Islam by all means possible, which includes terror, brutality, and murder all in the name of Allah. These people use the very freedoms they seek to destroy. We are at war with Islam because Islam is at war with democracy and religious freedom.

Yep - strong medicine, but it may be the only treatment for the condition.
