Islamic Society of Boston Mosque and the Rewards of Dhimmitude
EXSUM: A few years back, a group of students visited a mosque owned by the Islamic Society of Boston, where a number of non-Muslim students were made to pray, including a Jewish kid, as documented by one of the moms on video. This video and the resulting outrage by other parents led to exposure of the ties between the mosque and various terror groups, including al Qaeda, not to mention the ties between the ISB and the local and state governments. It seems that this mosque's site was purchased from the city at a generous discount (56% off the asking price, a $225,000 subsidy), possibly in return for the $50,000 paid from the ISB to Mass Governor Deval Patrick. Now, it turns out that this same mosque is where the Tsarnaev brothers were indoctrinated and radicalized. So, we can thank the city of Boston and the state of Massachusetts for their generous subsidies to a mosque whose organization's founder, Abdurahman Alamoudi, is serving 23 years for terrorism; A mosque whose board of trustees includes Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, "spiritual" leader of the Muslim Brotherhood; and whose Trust President, Osama Kandil, directs of an Islamic charity designated as terrorist front, and which radicalized the brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon. Way to go, guys...

Be Careful What You Pray For
Back in September of 2010, Stella Paul wrote about a visit by students from Wellesley to the Islamic Society of Boston mosque which lead to "Jewish boys bowing to Allah."
Stella said in part, concerning uber liberal Jewish rabbis, that:
And, Stella Paul also pointed out that a Dr. Charles Jacobs was attacked (by uber liberal rabbis) for uncovering the following when she stated:
We've seen where your drama-queen histrionics are taking us -- right here in this astounding video
, filmed by a Massachusetts mom with more righteousness in her pinkie cuticle than the whole dreary gaggle of you put together...
And what did she find at the Saudi-funded mega-mosque so beloved by Governor Deval Patrick that he publicly accepted a $50,000 check from its terrorist-loving imam -- and so adored by Mayor Thomas Menino that he donated $2 million's worth of the public land on which it's built?
She found the girls and all the adult women being separated from the boys, and the boys being led to the prayer area.
She found not one teacher offering even the teensiest whisper of objection.
And then she saw five boys joining in the prayers, bowing and touching their foreheads to the floor in obeisance to Allah. Is this the payoff for all our years of sincere interfaith dialogue and bridge-building?
And hear this, O Rabbis -- one of those painfully unprotected, cynically manipulated, precious middle-school boys was a Jew.
And this is the same Islamic Cultural Center of Boston where:
You actively conspired to harm Dr. Jacobs rather than face the disturbing facts he was unearthing: the founder of the Islamic Society of Boston, Abdurahman Alamoudi, is in jail for 23 years for al-Qaeda-linked terrorist pranks; the loathsome Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi
, "spiritual" leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, who's banned from the U.S., served as ISB Trustee; and Osama Kandil, ISB Trust President, is director of an Islamic charity designated as terrorist by the U.S. government.
Well, no wonder that young Dzhokhar Tsarnaev thought it was acceptable to bring down "the wretched house of the West." The West, in the form of the Boston government and a number of its "interfaith dialogue" clergymen, seemed quite comfortable with turning a blind eye to the teachings of the Blind Sheik and others.
Suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended a Massachusetts mosque that made a controversial deal with a Boston city agency that allowed it to buy land at a lower-than-market price in exchange for various token services to the Boston community, despite the mosque's links to some radical anti-American figures
The 19-year-old Tsarnaev attended
mosque at the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The Daily Caller reported Friday
that the ISB hosted at its satellite cultural center a book signing April 6 featuring British journalist Victoria Brittain, who has criticized the United States and United Kingdom for waging a "war against Islam" in its anti-terrorism efforts.
The construction of that cultural center, which opened in Roxbury, Massachusetts in 2004 near Roxbury Community College, was marked by a controversial apparent "government subsidy" from the city of Boston to the ISB.
The Boston Redevelopment Authority, which is the city's municipal planning agency and which is comprised of mayoral appointees, conveyed the land for the ISB's purchase in 2000 at more than $400,000.
However, the city of Boston only charged ISB $175,000 for the land
, with an agreement that the ISB perform other services for the city to make up the $225,000 remainder. The ISB agreed to deliver a series of lectures at Roxbury Community College, to assist the Roxbury Community College Foundation in its fundraising efforts, and to maintain a Boston "play area."
The deal was later described in media coverage
as "an apparent financial handout" and a "possible government subsidy" from the city of Boston to the ISB.
What follows is not a perfect logical or linear analogy to the above facts, but is close enough to be of value. It has been said a number of times that the U.S. Constitution is not a suicide pact. But if one no longer wants to support the Constitution's First Amendment right to practice one's own religion, i.e., tolerate one's own faith without literally bowing to another faith - one can make a case that a community that will not uphold its own cultural and legal traditions is being culturally suicidal.
This is especially - and obviously - true in light of the recent Boston Marathon bombings and the even more recent attempt to bomb a train crossing the Niagara River between the U.S. to Canada, reported by Atlas Shrugs.
Years ago, the late Mayor Ed Koch, who called himself "a liberal with sanity," liked to tell the story of a public hearing where a man stood up and said that even though he had been mugged in the street, he still retained all his liberal beliefs. From the public gallery, a woman then cried out, "Mug him again!" How many times will the people of Boston - and America - and the FBI - need to be mugged before they understand what they have to do to defend themselves and stand for something other than tolerance alone?
