Why Are Mosques Exempt From Government Surveillance?

Last week, I wrote about the connection between the Boston bombers, the Tsarnaev brothers to Muslim terrorists to Malik Obama, Barack’s brother.  In that report, I mentioned that the mosque the brothers attended has a reputation of being a terrorist hotbed.  Two members of that mosque, Aafia Siddiqui and Tarek Mahenna were both convicted of plotting terrorist attacks in the US.  Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi was a trustee at the Boston area mosque.  He is now one of the key spiritual leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood.  His open support for terrorism caused him to be placed on the list of people banned from entering the US.

A number of other terrorist plots have been thwarted by government surveillance on other mosques in the US, that is until 2 years ago.  The ACLU and CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) filed a lawsuit against the FBI for conducting surveillance of mosques across the nation.  In response to the lawsuits, in October 2011 the FBI was informed that they were no longer allowed to conduct any intelligence gathering at any mosque without the express permission of a secret group within the Justice Department known as the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

The SORC is so secretive that no one seems to know who actually serves on the committee.  The names of the members and staff are kept secret from everyone including the FBI.  For all we know, there may not be a real committee and the SORC is just a front to allow Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Hussein Obama to control any investigation of domestic Muslims.

Knowing the history of the Boston area mosque, I can’t help but wonder if continued FBI surveillance could have thwarted the Tsarnaev brothers’ terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon.  Will the US see more attacks being carried out on our home soil because the FBI is not allowed to gather the intelligence they need to stop them?

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, President of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, was contacted by OneNewsNow concerning the report of the SORC and the ban on surveillance of mosques in the US.  She told them:

“Remember, [President] Obama said that when the winds change and the world turns against Islam, he is going to stand with the Muslims. He’s been very clear [about that], and the Muslims aren’t his political enemies – it’s Christians, it’s ‘Zionists,’ it’s tea party activists. Because we know the truth.”

Cardoza-Moore pointed out that Obama is not only standing with Muslims but they are intentionally receiving millions of American taxpayer dollars:

“He’s not investing them in building democracies around the world. He’s investing our tax dollars in building Muslim Brotherhood Islamic governments.”

Obama has been justifying the government’s spying on Americans by monitoring their phone calls, email and internet usage in the name of national security.  Yet he prevents intelligence gathering on his Muslim brothers which will only serve to open the doors to more home grown terrorism.

Think about it!  Your grandma is being monitored for possible threats to national security but mosques known to produce terrorists are not allowed to be monitored.  Do you think the same intelligence prohibition applies to Christian churches or Jewish synagogues?  Have we ever heard anything about their rights and privacy being protected and the FBI being banned from monitoring them?

This is further proof that Obama is a practicing Muslim who has taken steps to protect his own and to open the doors for the persecution of Christians, Jews and the American people in general.  He is doing more to help Muslim terrorists in places like Egypt, Libya and now Syria than he is to protect the American people here at home.

No one expected the former Soviet Union to collapse, but in 1991, the world was shocked when it did.  The collapse was not at the hand of a foreign enemy, but it came from within.  No one expects the United States of America to collapse either, but it can and will happen.  Under Obama’s leadership, that collapse can happen just as suddenly and surprisingly as that of the Soviet Union and it’s looking more and more like that collapse is closer and closer.  God help us when it does, but we will be the hunted and persecuted people in the new America.
