Bombing suspect's mosque hosted author who criticized US, UK for 'war against Islam'
by Patrick Howley
The Islamic Society of Boston, attended by Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, recently hosted a book event featuring a journalist who has been highly critical of the U.S. and U.K. "War on Terror," which she described as a "war against Islam."
The Islamic Society of Boston also encouraged its members to show their "support of the forgotten women of the War on Terror."
The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based mosque and its satellite cultural center — which announced its indefinite closing Friday in light of "the terrible and sad events of last night, the criminal of the bombings on the loose, and the strong recommendations of our Governor" — hosted a book signing and "Meet the Author" event April 6 with British journalist and former Guardian editor Victoria Brittain, who discussed her book "Shadow Lives: The Forgotten Women of the War on Terror."
