Obama's Dubious Mosque Choice
Barack Obama is scheduled to visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) Wednesday, his first visit to a U.S. mosque since becoming president.
ISB leaders have amassed a record of support for radical Islamic causes over the years, including endorsing the Chechen jihad and Palestinian suicide bombings. Its former imam was active in a charity later linked to terror financing including Hamas, the Taliban, and for providing "hundreds of thousands of dollars" to Osama bin Laden.
More recently, a resident scholar described homosexuality as a threat to societal health, in stark contrast to the president's views on the issue.
