The Mosque Missing from the Media's Boston Marathon Bombing Remembrances
by Pamela Geller
Amid all the observances and solemn statements and cries of "Boston Strong," the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon jihad massacre proved one thing: denial about jihad terror and the mosques that encourage it is stronger than ever.
All the observances, commemorations and coverage studiously avoided mentioning why the attack happened in the first place (jihad) and the Islamic Society of Boston, where the jihad murderers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended mosque prayers. Boston's former Mayor Thomas Menino put on a sad, grieving face for the anniversary observances. He should have been grieving over the outrageous sweetheart deal he gave to the Islamic Society of Boston on some prime Boston real estate, enabling them to build their huge mosque essentially at taxpayer expense.
No one mentioned what I wrote about at Breitbart last year: that the Islamic Society of Boston, which the Tsarnaevs attended, has numerous connections to jihad terrorists. I noted that the Islamic Society of Boston "was founded by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, the leading "moderate Muslim" in Washington throughout the 1990s. Alamoudi turned out to be an al-Qaeda financier and is now in prison." Alamoudi was also a close associate and financier of Republican power broker Grover Norquist. Convicted jihad terrorists Aafia Siddiqui and Tarek Mehanna had also been members of the Islamic Society of Boston.
