MEMBER DIARY

To Chancellor Merkel et al., one American thanks you.

Okay, so it’s a bit embarassing when people from other countries show more of respect for the horrific events that occured on Sept. 11, 2001 than the leaders of our own country are inclined to do.  And I’m sure that an interest in protecting their own people probably played a part in the choice that Germany has made.  I can’t help but appreciate it all the same.
By the way, to all Democrats, THIS is how it is done!!!!

German mosque used by Sept. 11 attackers shut down

BERLIN — German authorities say they have closed a Hamburg mosque used by the Sept. 11 attackers as a meeting place before they moved to the United States.

A statement by Hamburg officials says the Taiba mosque was shut down and its cultural association was banned on Monday.

The prayer house, formerly known as al-Quds mosque, used to be a meeting and recruiting point for some of the Sept. 11 attackers.

Weekly news magazine Focus cites a report by a local intelligence agency branch in saying the mosque has again become the city’s “main center of attraction for the jihad scene.” It says some members who belonged to the Taiba group and prayed at the mosque have moved on to a radical training camp in Uzbekistan.

Officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
