After the Paris terrorist attacks by extremist Islamic terrorists that killed 130 people there have been many calls from world leaders to shut down and dissolve radical mosques. Many mosques around the world harbor, facilitate and simply promote a terrorist ideology one way or another.
Even French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve and Belgium’s Prime Minister Charles Michel have called for the dissolution of radical mosques.
What has been notoriously absent is anything from the Obama administration stating their concern over radical mosques here in America – and there are plenty of them.
The Daily Caller recently looked into this important topic:
There are more than 80 radical mosques in the U.S., according to the Clarion Project, a non-profit group that describes itself as “dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamist extremism.”
Using Clarion’s definitions, The Daily Caller News Foundation has mapped these radical mosques in an effort to aid readers seeking to understand the extent of radical Islamic voices in this country.

From the Daily Caller:
Several mosques on the Clarion Project’s list stand out.
- Dar al-Hijrah, located just outside Washington in Falls Chruch, Virginia, for example, was the place of worship for two of the 9/11 hijakers. This mosque’s present Imam, Shaker Elsayed, described Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna’s teachings as “the closest reflection of how Islam should be in this life.” The Brotherhood “seeks to implement Sharia-based governance globally,” according to the Clarion Project.
- Multiple terrorists have come from the Islamic Society of Boston, including the Boston Bombers and al-Qaeda terrorists Aafia Siddiqui, Tarek Mehanna and Ahmad Abousamra.
- The Islamic Center of Tucson was “basically the first cell of al-Qaeda in the United States,” terrorism expert Rita Katz told The Washington Post in 2002. “At least a dozen terror-linked individuals have been tied to the” center, according to the Clarion Project.
