Last week, Maryland Governor, Martin O'Malley, invited guests from several Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, including ISNA and ICNA, to a Islamist celebration ceremony. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan attended and placed a ceremonial stone at the construction site of a 15-acre Neo-Ottoman empire-inspired complex with five buildings, including a mega-mosque, financed by the Turkish government, due to be completed next year in Lanham, Maryland.
The $100 million complex is slated to be "the largest and most striking examples of Islamic architecture in the western hemisphere."
In 2007 on Turkish television, Erdogan admonished Westerners' use of the term "moderate Islam," by declaring, "These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that's it."
That should have set off alarms in the West and extinguished any fantasies of Turkey's role as a pillar of "moderate" Islam. Erdogan had made earlier alarming statements, similarly ignored as in 1994, while mayor of Istanbul, when he avowed, "Thank G-d Almighty, I am a servant of the Shariah." Further confirming his strategy in 1996 after he was dismissed as mayor, the future Prime Minister stated, "Democracy is like a streetcar. You ride it until you arrive at your destination and then you step off." (In other words, fake democracy until you no longer have to - pure TAQIYYA!) Since 2002, the Turkish government has been pursuing a version of Islam closely aligned with the Wahhabi extremist Islam of the Saudis.
The building of Christian churches has been denied in Turkey.

Maryland Blessed With $100 Million Turkish Mega-Mosque
On May 15, 2013, the Turkish Prime Minister, Erdogan, an anti-Semite, attended a ceremony a stone’s throw from our nation’s capital celebrating what he claims “will likely become the largest and most striking example of Islamic architecture in the Western Hemisphere.” Next year, when completed, the Turkish American Culture and Civilization Center, in Lanham, Maryland “US of A,” a project of the Islamist Turkish government, will be the grandest Islamic site in the Western Hemisphere. Allah Akbar!
The 15-acre neo-Ottoman empire inspired complex will have five buildings and a mosque capable of serving over 750 faithful Muslim worshipers. I have to give President Obama and his State Department some credit. The White House was correct in proclaiming that they had Islamists on the run. I just did not think they were beginning to run America.
Last week’s Islamist celebration ceremony was attended by Maryland Governor, Martin O’Malley who welcomed guests representing the “Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA),” the “Islamic Society of North America” and several other U.S. Muslim Brotherhood affiliates. Rumor has it that Governor O’Malley is considering a Presidential run in 2016.
President Obama was invited but between scandalapouza and tee off times, he was unable to attend.
Many Americans are unaware of an escalation of Turkish government programs to grow Islamist influence in North America. Not surprising, since any real reporting on the growth of Islamic cultural influence in America is commonly ignored by our liberal press. After all, why should progressive ideologues give a hoot about Islamist leadership in the United States? To them, mainstream Islamic leaders like INCA President Naeem Baig should be embraced regardless of ties to terror and Baig’s public comments like: “work in America is kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within” are out of context Islamaphobic misunderstandings.
Whether here or abroad Islamic cultural centers are not a model of civic multicultural charity. They only serve Muslims. Welcoming these stealth jihadists’ compounds financed by leaders that condemn both Israel and America, in my opinion, is at a minimum aiding seditious behavior.
Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan considers Islamic criticism akin to “a crime against humanity.” He has also publicly railed against Israel as a “fascist regime” and a “terrorist state, “but considers Hamas a “resistance group. “ It has been reported by Islamist-Watch.org that Erdogan’s AKP Party “desires to re-establish the Caliphate and unify the Middle East—and later the world—under Turkish Islamist rule and hegemony.”
Yeah, not a big deal. It is just another innocuous fancy Muslim cultural center. Nothing to be concerned about. Jihad and desires for a Global caliphate are not real. It is only a conspiracy theory.
Presently, the Turkish Fethullah Gulen School network, the “largest charter school network in America” is under investigation by the FBI. The Gulen School ideology has been a powerful force aiding in the conversion of Turkey’s former secular society into an Islamist dominated state. In other words, we have Jihadi Elementary, Intermediate and High Schools currently operating with US tax payer subsidies all over our country. The founder of this Turkish education and cultural abomination just happens to reside in Pennsylvania.
Since Prime Minister Erdogan took over Turkey in 2003, the peaceful culture of Islam has worked very hard to establish itself as a true purveyor of tolerance. According to the Clarion Project:
“College admissions have been changed to favor religious students, the military has been gutted of its secular generals (with one in five generals currently in prison on dubious charges) and women have been routed out of top government jobs. Honor killings in Turkey increased 1,400 percent between 2002 and 2009. Persecution of artists and journalists has become commonplace as opponents are charged with vague crimes like “denigrating Islam” and “denigrating the state.”
It would appear that our former Muslim allies in Turkey might not be so tolerant after all.
Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is aggressively pursuing his pro-Islamist agenda within our borders and not much is being done to prevent foreign Islamists from strengthening their subversive activities. Our federal government is once again asleep at the wheel while future anti-American pro-Sharia influences work to radicalize Muslim youth. I wonder what historic calamity awaits America. Regardless, I am sure it will result in more unconstitutional infringement and privacy loss. After all, when it comes to terrorism, Washington rarely learns life’s lessons. To quote future Presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton “What difference does it make?”
