Va. Legislator: Dar al-Hijrah Critics Spread Fear and Hate
by John Rossomando
Criticism of extremist rhetoric and the numerous terror plots that have emanated from Falls Church, Va.'s Dar al-Hijrah Islamic center equals "ignorantly painting all Muslims with the same brush" and "dividing the country using fear and hate," a Virginia state legislator said.
Alfonso Lopez, a Democratic candidate for Congress, slammed Fox News host Eric Bolling for denouncing Lopez's resolution honoring the 30th anniversary of the controversial Virginia mosque.
Bolling criticized the resolution because of Dar al-Hijrah's ties to American-born al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and convicted Fort. Hood shooter Nidal Hassan during a March 19 broadcast.
