What the Mega-Mosque Represents for America

by JANET LEVY April 5, 2016

To Turkish President Recip Erdogan's dismay, Obama did NOT attend Saturday's opening of the Lanham, Maryland mega-mosque as expected.  At the mosque inauguration, the stealth ISIS supporter and arch enemy of the Kurds lambasted "those who are defaming our faith" and singled out U.S. presidential candidates who are exposing the Islamic threat to America as "targeting Muslims."  

Erdogan defended Turkey's efforts to fight terrorism and pledged to send the "true message of Islam across the globe."  Ironically, the Turkish leader has described his Islamic-supremacist government's efforts to deliver weapons to Palestinian jihadists and thwart Israel's blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza as a "peace flotilla" and had the hubris to demand an apology from Israel for its "aggressive" interception of the operation.  Under pressure from Obama, Israel was forced to oblige.

The Lanham, Maryland mosque is reputed to be the largest Islamic campus in the Western Hemisphere.  Turkey has been busily building mega-mosques on five continents with planned mosque construction projects in Havana, Cambridge, Budapest, Bucharest, Haiti, and several other cities around the world.  It appears that Erdogan, an aspiring Caliph, may be close to attaining his goal of reviving and leading the Neo-Ottoman Empire by 2023.  

The Lanham mega-mosque, a $110 million project, housed on 15 acres, comprises a 20,000+ square foot mosque, a cultural center, guest houses, and an underground sports complex.  (This begs the question, "Why underground?")

The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is reported to have the second largest Muslim population in the U.S. (conveniently located at the heartbeat of the country) with at least 25 mosques a.k.a. potential jihad training centers and weapons depots. With estimates from several studies (including the 2005 expose by Freedom House) claiming that over 80% of U.S. mosques are radicalized, doing the math indicates that 20 such facilities potentially threaten the seat of our government and beyond.   

The land for the Lanham mega-mosque was originally purchased by Fetullah Gulen, an exiled Turkish cleric, who with over 150 schools, operates the largest charter school network in the United States.  It was recently reported that Gulen is infiltrating the U.S. military by establishing publicly-funded schools to target the children of American service personnel.  The radical cleric is currently negotiating with the U.S. Air Force to locate a charter school at Nellis Air Force Base with classes to begin in the 2016-2017 school year.  As one of the largest national users of H1B* visas, Gulen is able to recruit Turkish Muslim teachers to staff his many schools.  He retains a skilled stable of immigration lawyers to insure favorable visa decisions - 684 H1B visas in 2009 alone.  

While Americans are busy focusing on other things - March Madness and Kim Kardashian to name a couple, the stealth jihad of over 60 years duration continues apace. In a relatively short time, the civilizational jihad has advanced to an unfathomable degree. Truly, the enemy within has cleverly achieved enormous success raising minimal awareness and relatively contained violence.
