TURKISH PRESIDENT Attends Opening Of HUGE Mosque In Maryland That Turkey Bankrolled

Here we go…another Mosque in the U.S. In 2001 there were 200 Mosques in the U.S. Want to take a guess at how many there are today? Over 2,000 mosques are across America with many, many more to come. Could everyone wake up now? We’re losing our culture and our traditions but then that’s what Michelle Obama said we’d need to do if Barack was elected:

Where’s the press? Where’s the concern for the ridiculousness of Turkey paying for a Mosque in the U.S.? Is anyone awake out there? The most outrageous thing of all is that the Turkish President had the outright unmitigated gaul to say this:

“It is unacceptable for the Muslims of the world to be forced to pay the price of the horror and pain created by a handful of terrorists in the aftermath of 9/11.”


 

Lanham (United States) (AFP) – Beneath a majestic Ottoman dome, waving Turkish flags outside their brand new mosque, a group of US Muslims — the faithful and the curious — jostled Saturday to welcome a president.

Hailing the beauty of its location near the capital Washington, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan officially inaugurated the Diyanet Center of America.

Ankara’s leader, whose country bankrolled the massive project at a cost of $110 million, said its presence in the small town of Lanham — and during a US election year that has seen Donald Trump call for a ban on Muslims entering the country — made sense.

“Unfortunately, we are going through a rough time all around the world. Intolerance towards Muslims is on the rise not only here in the United States but also around the globe,” said Erdogan, who is accused of increasingly autocratic rule.

“That’s why I believe this center will play a crucial role,” he added, drawing cheers from the crowd of thousands of men, women and children packed behind security barriers.

The complex, the only one in the United States to feature two minarets, echoes the golden age of 16th century Ottoman architecture, with its central dome, half domes and cupolas in the style of Istanbul’s Suleymaniye Mosque.

“Terrorism will never have a religion, will never have a nation, will never have a nationality, nor will it ever have a root or ethnicity,” Erdogan said.

“It is unacceptable for the Muslims of the world to be forced to pay the price of the horror and pain created by a handful of terrorists in the aftermath of 9/11.”
