Oh now this is richly ironic and it would be downright laughable if it wasn't so serious and stupidly delusional. Click on the title to read about how the US Census Bureau just signed a lease renting office space from Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, VA. You can also enjoy reading about how the State Department uses it as a training center for diplomats and touts it as an wonderful example of American Islam. Does the name of the center sound familiar? It should. It is the same mosque where top Al Qaida recruiter Amwar Awlaki, mosque leader, ministered to the Pentagon hijackers and radicalized the Ft Hood terrorist, the Times Square bomber, and the Underwear Bomber. It is the same mosque that the Department of Homeland Security has warned is "an operating front for Hamas" and is "currently under investigation for financing and providing aid and comfort to bad organizations and members." US Rep. John Carter, R-Texas, whose constituency includes Ft. Hood, is demanding that the government sever its lease and we can only hope that others follow suit.
My question is this. Why are we bothering to fight long and expensive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan when we are so willing to give aid and comfort to the enemy right here at home?
