BOSTON A crowd of hundreds of local Muslims inaugurated a large new mosque last week in Roxbury Crossing. The 68,000 sq foot Islamic Cultural Center in the heart of Boston, designed by Dr. Sami Angawi, and pioneered by board member Dr. Walid Fitaihi, Dr. Osama Kandeel and others, celebrated its inauguration with the historic attendance of the first Muslim in the United States Congress, Keith Ellison, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. This new Islamic cultural center in America is tremendously significant as it resides 5 minutes from the heart of downtown Boston and less than 3 miles from Harvard, MIT, Boston University, Tufts, Boston College, and less than 10 miles from 50 other universities. The new Islamic Cultural Center features accommodation for up to 3000 worshippers; library and interfaith center space; retail spaces for gift shops; numerous halls for cultural and educational functions; conference and office spaces; underground parking; a 135-ft minaret; space for a computer lab; facilities for washing and preparing the deceased for burial; and in Phase 2, will Insha Allah include a school with 17 classrooms.

This turns my stomach!
Will the girls still have to pray in the basement?
Try building a Catholic Church in Saudi Arabia and it will be blown up in minutes. So much for tolerance.
Where’s a herd of pigs running loose when you need one?
And we’re supposed to be excited and thrilled about this major Islamic center? I sure hope that the center is a place used only for peaceful purposes. I know it makes me a politically incorrect bigot to think anything like that. Well, i want to express such beliefs while I still can............
Where is the equity in this????
As the head of C.A.R.E. said a few months ago: we are not here to ‘blend’ in, we are here to ‘take-over’
C.A.I.R. (it’s the phonics that messed me up! lol)
How close is Logan airport?
The non-Muslims in the area fought for decades against it.
The place is Saudi funded, calls to prayers outside the Mosque (at least on opening day) and at least on Jew hater on the board.
My comment; “Were any of the tax payers moneys used, if any, how much?
“Where’s a herd of pigs running loose when you need one”
I think they are in Katy, Texas
Now we know where to target a smartbomb.
Islam is a religion of death. Islam is a religion of hate. Muslims follow a prophet that was a pedophile. Thier god is a pig god.If all muslims vanished off the face of the earth, 90% of violence would end.
(You never know when good targeting data just might be useful...)
