How Radical is the Cambridge Mosque?
by Joel B. Pollak
On Tuesday, USA Today and Breitbart News both reported that the Cambridge, MA mosque attended by the late Boston Marathon terror suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has ties to Islamist radicals. It was founded in part by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who is now serving a 23-year federal sentence for terrorism and who served as the mosque's first president.
The mosque, and the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) Cultural Center in Boston, are also affiliated with the Muslim American Society, which federal prosecutors link to the Muslim Brotherhood.
As more details emerge about the Cambridge mosque, which Fox News reports has long been a target of criticism, it is yet unclear whether Tsarnaev and his younger brother were radicalized at home, or during visits with radicals abroad, as Secretary of State John Kerry has suggested. The answer may well be both.
