Here’s a juicy little story for all of you Muslim-o-philes: Over 80% of mosques in the U.S. “have been radicalized by Saudi money and influence,” according to Yehudit Barsky, who heads the Division on Middle East and International Terrorism at the American Jewish Committee and is executive editor of Counterterrorism Watch.
For each mosque they invested in, the Saudis sent along their own imam (teacher-cleric), meaning that “the people now in control of teaching religion [to American Muslims] are extremists.”
Discussing mainstream Muslim organizations in America, she noted that the Islamic Society of North America “supports the Muslim Brotherhood and the Saudi regime.”
The Islamic Circle of North America “is composed of members of Jamaat e-Islami, a Pakistani Islamic radical organization similar to the Muslim Brotherhood that helped to establish the Taliban.”
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was founded in the 1980s by pro-Hamas activists. Some of their leaders have even condoned suicide bombings in Israel and against American armed forces.
