Muslim Brotherhood digging roots in Boston

I think I've mentioned before that a couple of years ago, a large mosque was built in the heart of the Jewish neighborhood where I normally stay when I'm in Boston. Boston's Jewish community had attempted to buy the property to build a school on it and was rebuffed by the owner.

But that mosque - about which I know nothing more - is far from being the only mosque in the Boston area. Significantly, there are two huge mosques in Boston and Cambridge that belong to the Islamic Society of Boston, which is the local branch of a group that federal law enforcement officials have described as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood (Hat Tip: NY Nana).
Referring to the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge, Jacobs said, “The founder of that mosque, blocks from where the Tsarnaevs lived and where they prayed, was Abdulrahman Alamoudi.. He is the model of deception in American-Muslim history…
“He…convinced President Clinton and also President George W. Bush that he was precisely the kind of moderate Muslim leader that America was looking for,” Jacobs said. “In fact, he deceived everyone. He’s now in jail for 23 years for giving money, for funding al Qaeda.
Other worshippers at the Cambridge mosque have included an al Qaeda member convicted of plotting attacks on New York City and a man sentenced to 17 years in prison for planning a shooting spree on a Boston-area shopping mall.
One former trustee of the mosque is Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader and terrorist supporter who’s banned from entering the United States.
The explosive material found in the mosque is not new.
One moderate Muslim leader who visited the mosque 10 years ago told CBN. “We go upstairs and I find the library and it’s full of flyers, full of newsletters in Arabic,” Dr. Ahmed Mansour of the International Quranic Institute said. “And they call for jihad against America and against the Jews and against the Christians.”
The Muslim Brotherhood in the United States hides under the name Muslim American Society (MAS), which the Muslim Brotherhood founded in 1993. and which federal prosecutors have called “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”
MAS opened up another mosque four years the Boston neighborhood of Roxbury and goes by the lovely-sounding name of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center.
It cost $15,5 million to build. Getting money was no problem. More than half of it reportedly came from Saudi Arabia, the country whose terrorists pulled off the 9/11 terrorist attack.
Both mosques are run by the same leadership and have the same ideology, according to Jacobs.
Massachusetts politicians endorsed the Roxbury mosque although two months earlier, the mosque’s cleric incited Muslims who had been arrested for terrorism.
One morning, they're going to wake up in Boston and in a lot of other American cities and discover that they look a lot more like London or Berlin or Riyadh than they look like the Boston or New York in which I grew up and went to college. And by then it will be too late.

Carl,thank you for the hat tip. I was literally in shock when I saw the article. And thank you for much more about this. We haven't been in Boston for years, and seeing this made me not want to go, but to the Boston I knew, which no longer exists. To think how the Jews of Boston were not allowed to live where they wanted until I was 13, and my parents zt"l were at last buy a house in Newton? And now this? I feel like crying.
