This New Map Shows Locations Of Radical Mosques In US – One Could Be Near You

The Clarion Project (formerly Clarion Fund) is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating both policy makers and the public about the growing phenomenon of Islamic extremism. The Clarion Project is committed to working towards safeguarding human rights for all peoples.” This purpose statement from The Clarion Project can be found on their website, which also includes valuable information on where Democratic and Republican candidates stand on radical Islamic terrorism.

The Daily Caller News Foundation researched the mosques and Islamic centers listed on the Clarion Project’s website to identify what the DCNF considers “radical mosques.” The DCNF states that of the 2106 mosques, the Clarion Project has identified more than 80 radical mosques in the United States. The DCNF then attempted to map out those mosques for its readers.

“These mosques or their leading clerics have radicalized attendees to become terrorists, supported terrorist organizations, made radical Islamist remarks or hosted others that have, or are financially backed by radical individuals or organizations,” according to the DCNF’s Ethan Barton.

French and Belgium officials are calling for radical mosques to be dissolved. Here in the U.S., the Constitution protects freedom of religion and practice. Yet many Muslims have become radicalized in some Islamic centers and mosques and have gone on to commit crimes, murder, and other terrorist activities.

Barton states that several radical mosques on the map stand out from the others.

  • Dar al-Hijrah is located just outside Washington in Falls Chruch, Virginia
  • The Islamic Society of Boston, Barton said, produced the “Boston Bombers and al-Qaeda terrorists Aafia Siddiqui, Tarek Mehanna and Ahmad Abousamra.”
  • The Islamic Center of Tucson was “basically the first cell of al-Qaeda in the United States,” according to terrorism expert Rita Katz in an interview with The Washington Post in 2002.

Political Islam, or the establishment of a world-wide caliphate, is the goal of radicals, radical Islam, and some Islamic centers and mosques. That caliphate seeks to abolish the Constitution of the United States, nullify the U.S. Law Code, and replace it with Shariah Law.

Watch: Ex-Islamic Extremist Drops Gigantic Truth Bomb On Obama And Hillary About ‘Islamic Extremism’

A former Muslim extremist called out the Obama administration for failure to properly identify the foe it is facing.

Maajid Nawaz, who served four years in an Egyptian prison for his involvement with a group that targeted the Hosni Mubarak regime, told Megyn Kelly on her program Monday night that, “Unfortunately, I don’t think this current administration has had this issue of Islamist extremism correct from day one.”

“The policy from day one has been a policy of obfuscation, denial and, unfortunately, a lack of action and a lack of strategy,” he said.

“There’s a danger if we don’t name this thing ‘Islamist extremism’ and isolate it from mainstream Muslims, and then undermine it,” Nawaz told Kelly. “When we don’t name something, the vast majority of people who don’t really understand these complex conversations will assume the problem is with the religion of Islam and Muslims, themselves.”

“It is only by naming it, we are able to isolate it from mainstream Muslims and say the problem isn’t Islam, it’s theocracy, it’s Islamist extremism,” he said. “This idea that it has nothing to do with Islam is as preposterous as to say, it has everything to do with Islam.”

The former terrorist explained how he was radicalized while living in Great Britain. For years, Islamist groups have been working in Muslim communities, preaching the notion of reviving a theocratic caliphate. When the Islamic State came along, thousands of European Muslims were primed to join the fight.

As reported by Western JournalismRep. Ed Royce, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, believes one objective the U.S. and its allies must adopt to undermine Islamic State’s appeal is to shrink the land held by the so-called caliphate. “When it is perceived that ISIS is losing territory, that’s when it is harder for them to recruit on the internet and tell people they’re invincible,” he said.

The representative believes two immediate policy changes that should be adopted to achieve that end are, first, more aggressively bombing ISIS targets in Syria and Iraq, and second, arming the Kurds’ 180,000 soldiers.

Dems Just Launched New 55-Second Attack On Repubs – People Instantly Notice 1 HUGE Problem

A new Democratic ad against Republican presidential candidates chides them for “saying the same thing.” Then it gets that one thing wrong.

The ad from the Democratic National Committee, released Thursday, starts off in intoning, “Republicans keep saying the same thing.”

“Equating Islam, all Muslims, with terrorists is oversimplification and wrong,” it says, before a series of statements supposedly designed to prove the point.

However, the comments from Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and former Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush that are used in the ad all very clearly show the Republican candidates talking about “radical Islam,” “Radical Muslims” or “radical Islamic terrorists.” Never does any candidate talk about Islam in general.

Commentators panned the DNC’s effort to drag down Republicans.

“The inference the DNC appears to making here is astonishing. To even allude to the fact that radical Islam exists is now ‘equating Islam, all Muslims, with terrorists?’ Even the most politically correct among us would roll their eyes at that notion,” wrote Mediaite columnist Alex Griswold, who called the ad “just plain stupid.”

“The stupidity and blatant intellectual dishonesty of this ad makes me hostile,” wrote Legal Insurrection’s Amy Miller. “The DNC rails in this ad about ‘incitement,’ saying that inciting fear ‘isn’t presidential’; the problem is that this very ad attempts to incite more fear than even the most radically offensive, white hood-wearing, backwoods racist could ever hope for.”

Not only did the ad conflate fear of radical Islam with Islam in general, it comes at a time when Americans view radical Islam as a clear and present danger.

A survey released Friday by Rasmussen Reports found that 92 percent of all voters believe radical Islamic terrorism is a serious threat to the United States.

The poll found that 60 percent of likely voters believe America is at war with radical Islam – 56 percent of Democrats polled and 70 percent of Republicans surveyed. Only 24 percent overall share President Obama’s opinion that no such conflict exists.

Watch: Hillary Just Said 8 Surprising Words About Muslims That Are Catching Everyone’s Attention

Hillary Clinton is known for her politically correct statements, and her recent one about Islam is sure to generate controversy.

Clinton recently addressed the Council on Foreign Relations, a famous international affairs think tank, about the relationship between terrorism and Islam.

The Democratic presidential contender stated “Islam is not our adversary,” and that “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people” who “have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”

She went on: “The obsession in some quarters with a clash of civilizations, repeating the specific words ‘radical Islamic terrorism,’ isn’t just a distraction, it gives these criminals, these murderers, more standing than they deserve.”

Clinton is not the only Democratic leader to take issue with saying that such terrorists are members of radical Islam. This past February, Barack Obama explained why he refuses to call the movement “radical Islam.”

Obama stated at the White House: “They are not religious leaders; they are terrorists. We are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.”

The president also said: “They no more represent Islam than any madman who kills in the name of Christianity or Judaism or Hinduism. No religion is responsible for terrorism. People are responsible for violence and terrorism.”

Donald Trump, unsurprisingly, has taken the opposite side of the issue. He said on Monday that the White House should focus more on fighting “radical Islamic terrorism,” a phrase he said the White House should be using.

He said: “We have a president that nobody can understand, he doesn’t want to use the term… whether you like it or not, it’s a very gruesome fact; a very serious problem… unless you are going to use the term, you aren’t going to solve the problem.”

What do you think of Hillary Clinton’s problem with calling the movement “radical Islamic terrorism”- and her statement that Muslims “have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism?”

Watch: Trump Just Responded To The Paris Terror Attacks In A Very Controversial Way

Several Republican presidential candidates have reacted to Friday’s terror attacks in Paris – and subsequent reports that at least one of the extremists involved had a Syrian refugee passport – with their own plans to avoid a similar tragedy on U.S. soil. While a number of White House hopefuls favor a moratorium on America’s acceptance of any additional unvetted Syrian refugees, front-runner Donald Trump supported an even bolder prospect.

“You’re going to have to watch and study the mosques,” he said in an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, “because a lot of talk is going on at the mosques.”

Trump went on to lament New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s efforts to curtail surveillance of potentially extremist mosques.

“From what I heard,” he explained, “in the old days – meaning a while ago – we had great surveillance going on in and around mosques in New York City. And I understand our mayor totally cut that out.”

Host Joe Scarborough cited France’s new policy of shutting down mosques with direct ties to radical Islam, asking Trump if he would take a similar position as president.

“I would hate to do it,” he said, “but it is something you’re going to have to strongly consider because some of the ideas and some of the hatred … is coming from these areas.”
