  • Bombers' Mosque In Boston A Factory For Terrorists

    Homeland Insecurity: The New York Times thinks the Boston bombers "self-radicalized" on the Web. But it didn't look at their mosque, which has churned out other terrorists, too. USA Today, on the other hand, did look at their mosque — the Islamic Society of Boston — and found "a curriculum that radicalizes people," according to a local source quoted in the paper's investigation. "Other people have been radicalized there." In fact, several ISB members and leaders have been convicted or suspected of terrorism, including: (snipped) Abdurahman ,Alamoudi,Aafia Siddiqui, Ahmad Abousamra, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Jamal Badawi, and The Tsarnaev brothers,

    Al-Qaradawi (يوسف القرضاوي) is the president of the Global Muslim Brotherhood. He's the movement's ultimate authority. Based in Qatar, he operates without interference from local authorities. His ultimate, avowed goal is to have the islamic law (Sharia) enforced world-wide. Born in Egypt in 1926, he studied at Al-Azhar University, the most ancient institution of "education" in the Sunni Muslim world. Founded in 971 A.D, and located in Cairo, it became a "university" in 1961, with branches in several countries. It has rapidly become a hotbed of Muslim Brothers. As a student, Qaradawi was active in the resistance to the...

    On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib -- which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood's American...

President Obama's special envoy to the OIC, Rashad Hussain, had been scheduled to address the event, held at the American Islamic College. But after news reports highlighted his participation, Hussain reportedly withdrew at the last minute, citing a "scheduling conflict." This earned him an angry rebuke from websites like this (which the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report asserts is "an arm of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.")"

Ghonim, who was angered by the episode, then left the square with his face hidden by an Egyptian flag. Qaradawi gave a Friday sermon in the square, where hundreds of thousands of people gathered a...

With Mubarak now gone and a so-called “democracy movement” growing in Egypt, Al-Qaradawi, who is seen as the patriarch of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, has reentered the country to lead Friday sermons.

    BOSTON, Massachusetts - A mosque is rising in the heart of Boston. Not just any mosque, but the largest mosque in the northeastern United States. At a cost of $22 million, the 60,000-square-foot Islamic Cultural Center will be a prominent symbol of the growth of Islam in America. But the project is under fire, as some say it will also be a symbol of radical Islam. The Islamic Society of Boston is under scrutiny for ties to radicalism. But the society says it does not tolerate extremism. And yet, some former and present leaders of the society have been tied...

    CAIRO (Aljazeera) --An Egyptian cleric based in Qatar and often described as a moderate has ruled that it is a religious duty for Muslims to fight Americans in Iraq, including U.S. civilians, his office director has said. But the cleric, Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, said that two French journalists kidnapped in Iraq should be freed immediately. "All of them (U.S. military personnel and civilians) are invaders who came from their country to invade our country and fighting them [in Iraq] is a duty," said his office director Essam Talima on Thursday, quoting a fatwa or ruling on religious law by al-Qaradawi....

    Ken Livingstone has invited controversial Muslim cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi back to Britain for another speaking tour. Ignoring the growing outrage over Dr al-Qaradawi's presence, Labour's London Mayor offered him a personal invitation to return for a three-day conference in October, saying it would be an "honour". And in angry defiance he rounded on opposition leader Michael Howard and the press claiming they have helped stoke up the alarm over the cleric's London talks with Britain's Muslim community. Ignorance and political point-scoring have fuelled the damning "hysteria", Mr Livingstone insisted. Dr al-Qaradawi has been heavily criticised after describing suicide bombers as...

    LONDON (Reuters) - A leading Muslim theologian who condemned the Sept. 11 attacks and the Bali bombing but condones some suicide bombings will have his speeches monitored while in Britain, Home Secretary David Blunkett said on Wednesday. Blunkett, under mounting pressure to expel outspoken Egyptian-born cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, said his comments while on a speaking tour of Britain would be scrutinized for any indications of preaching race hate or intolerance. "We will certainly monitor what he has got to say and what he has got to do," Blunkett told BBC radio on the same day he said he planned to...

    A towering new mosque soon to join the Boston skyline has the secret endorsement of a radical, anti-Western cleric who preaches Muslims will one day ``conquer'' the United States. The endorsement of the $22 million mosque and cultural center project in Roxbury by the cleric, Dr. Yusuf Abdullah al-Qaradawi, appears prominently in an Arabic-language brochure published last year by the Islamic Society of Boston, which is the group Mayor Thomas M. Menino has approved to construct the mosque. Al-Qaradawi's enthusiastic backing of the project is nowhere to be found in the group's English-language brochure. After the backers of the mosque...

    CAIRO, April 16 (AFP) - A suicide attack against any Israeli, even a civilian, is the "highest level of martyrdom," a Qatari-based Muslim cleric declared here Tuesday. Yussef al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian, issued his remarks to reporters covering a conference of clerics from Arab and Muslim countries, including some who opposed such attacks on civilians. "Suicide attacks represent the highest level of martyrdom, because there are no civilians in Israel. It's a militarist society," Sheikh Qaradawi told reporters. Meanwhile, the imam of Al-Azhar, Sheikh Mohammed Sayyed Tantawi, the highest authority in Sunni Islam, narrowed the target for suicide bombers to Israeli...
