US Ambassador to UK Praises Terror-Tied Mosque, Offers Taxpayer Money

Is it becoming clear that the American government is no friend of the American people? If not, splash some cold water on your face and read this[1]:

The U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom visited[2] and praised[3] a well-known extremist mosque in London Monday, and invited its youth to participate in an embassy-funded initiative to travel to the United States.

The East London Mosque (ELM) hosted[4] recent speeches by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula leader and now Specially Designated Global Terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki[5], a prominent leader[6] of extremist group Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh, and a wide variety of other radical leaders. That’s beside hate and terrorism promoted by the mosque’s leaders and the Islamic Forum for Europe (IFE), a group headquartered in the mosque complex.

U.S. ambassador Louis B. Susman went to ELM, which, in combination with the adjoined London Muslim Centre, holds[7] more than 5,000 worshippers. During his visit, Susman said[8] he had “great admiration” for the mosque and was “looking forward” to a dialogue with community members. He also invited young people from the community to enroll in the U.S. embassy’s cultural and interfaith program, which coordinates trips for young leaders to the United States.

No word on whether US taxpayers will be picking up the tab for their suicide belts.

Let’s not have the standard “reaching out to moderates” hogwash:

ELM’s long history of radical ties was the focus of a major documentary[9] on Britain’s Channel 4 in March. A cursory search[10] on Google of the terms “East London Mosque Radical” generates multiple hits that show the mosque’s radical connections. Recent reports have also appeared in major British papers such as the Independent[11] and the Telegraph[12].

According to the State Department, obsequiously sucking up to Islamic maniacs who want to kill us is “part of President Obama’s call for a renewed dialogue with Muslim communities around the world.”

Had enough? Imagine how you’ll feel after the next 9/11.

Anwar al-Awlaki: Not far removed from the radicals running our government.
