Obama sends letter of appreciation to beheader’s mosque
It appears that the Obama Administration is akin to the Keystone Cops. Just two days before Alton Nolen, the now notorious Islamic beheader, killed an innocent woman, the Obama Administration sent the terrorist’s mosque a letter of appreciation.
Nolen’s mosque, the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC,) was founded by the brother a known Hamas terrorist, and has hosted a man know to associate with al-Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki.
The administration’s director of the DHS Center for Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships, David L. Myers, was assigned the task of delivering a personal message from President Barack Obama. The message read, “Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice.”
ISGOC congregation member Nolen beheaded an innocent woman while screaming Islamic slogans two days after
Obama’s letter. ISGOC Imam Imad Enchassi claimed unsubstantiated claims of multiple death threats, specifically beheadings, against Muslims and their children in Oklahoma. Not a single shred of credible evidence has been provided to law enforcement of any threats made either directly or indirectly to members of the congregation; furthermore there is no record of widespread anti-Muslim persecution in Oklahoma. Over the past five years, a total of seven anti-Islamic hate crimes have been documented in the state of Oklahoma.
Suhaib Webb, former Imam of ISGOC had been a close confidant of al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki. Other radical Islamists, such as convicted terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, have attended services at ISGOC.
The founder of ISGOC, Mufid Abdulqader, is the half-brother of the chairman of Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization. In 2009 Abdulqader was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Abdulqader was convicted on one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, one count of conspiracy to provide goods, funds, and services to a specially designated terrorist, and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Shortly after ISGOC member Alton Nolen executed his victim, the mosque responded by taking down the two most-recent sermons from its website. The first sermon, dated September 19th, revealed the mosque’s close connection with the Muslim Brotherhood-founded Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and current ISGOC Imam, Imad Enchassi, claimed, fallaciously, that a Republican Oklahoma state representative had said that “American Muslims are a cancer that need to be eliminated.” The second sermon, dated September 26th, showed that the mosque had tasked CAIR with handling the damage control.
Imad Enchassi has repeatedly claimed America is “creating more terrorists” with its foreign policy. Enchassi, who considers himself a perpetual “3rd generation refugee” of Palestine, has accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” during its recent 50-day war with terror group Hamas, despite the fact that Israel’s actions were spurred on by the launching of more than 3,000 rockets from the Gaza Strip.
It must be reassuring to American’s concerned over recent gains by terrorists in the Middle East that it’s president finds it appropriate to write a letter of praise to a mosque with strong ties to terrorist organizations. Once again, well done Mister President..
