Having now become a city seemingly synonymous with homegrown jihadists, Boston’s paper of record continues to go back to the very enablers who recruit and indoctrinate young men and women as the go to source for all things Muslim in Boston.
We’re talking about the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), a network of mosques and Islamic organizations, founded and managed by Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups, that have been the incubators for more than a dozen known terrorists and radicals, including Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
Consider the Boston Globe’s recent piece, by religion reporter Lisa Wangsness, on a “new generation” of Muslim leaders for the Boston area leading the charge for “civil rights.” But in reality all appearances suggest that this new generation is the same as the old, which means tied to Muslim Brotherhood outfits.
Wangsness approvingly cites Yusufi Vali, who leads the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. But Wangsness fails to mention that ISBCC is overseen by the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group Vali leads as treasurer. Federal prosecutors have identified MAS as the “overt arm” of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. Indeed ISB founder, convicted Al Qaeda financier and self-identified Muslim Brother Abdurrahman Al Amoudi has admitted that, “everyone knows MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.”
