That's what happened in the Virginia House of Delegates, who passed a joint resolution commending the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, VA.
From Walid Shoebat:
If this mosque sounds familiar, it should. Anwar al-Awlaki was once an Imam there and it was attended by 9/11 hijackers.
Via Understanding the Threat (h/t CHHR):
On Wednesday, March 5th, Virginia House Joint Resolution 484 was passed which commends Hamas’ Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia. Without becoming entirely sarcastic, the question has to be asked – is there a functioning brain cell at the State House in Richmond. Has the ability to reasonably process factual information completely evaporated from numerous elected officials in the state of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson?Before we even look at the factual evidence that Dar al Hijrah is a Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas entity, we need to look no farther than the resolution itself to see the gross negligence of Virginia’s elect – at least those who voted for this resolution. The sixth of the eight total lines in the resolution reads: “WHEREAS, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center is affiliated with the Muslim American Society, a national religious, educational, cultural, and charitable organization…”Actually, the Muslim American Society (MAS) is a Muslim Brotherhood front group.
Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of government entities in the U.S. is very quickly reaching critical mass. This move by the Virginia State House is not subtle and it cannot be spun. It is a signal that the Muslim Brotherhood in America is no longer tip-toeing deceptively toward victory. It is clearly picking up the pace and Americans continue to remain largely quiet.
What the Virginia State House has done is blatant acquiescence to America’s sworn enemies. It is treasonous, it is traitorous, it is criminal, and any state legislator who voted for it has violated the most important oaths of office.
As we wrote earlier this week, in Illinois, Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of government can be found at city, state, and national levels. Virginia is clearly suffering from the same affliction. Last week, we learned that Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA) (MIM note, he's known here as "Jihad" Gerry Connolly) is scheduled to appear at a fundraiser sponsored by the Brotherhood.The text of the resolution:
The VA Delegates listed as patrons of this commendation: Alfonso Lopez, Kaye Kory, Ken Plum of Reston, VA, Mark Sickles, Marcus Simon, and Vivan Watts are all Democrats. Back in 2010, a fundraiser was held for the mosque that listed former Governor and DNC Chair (now US Senator from Virginia) Tim Kaine, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chair Sharon Bulova, and US Reps. Jim Moron and "Jihad" Gerry Connolly as invited guests. Everyone except Connolly later returned the invitation and it is not known if Connolly attended. What is it with Democrats and their symbiotic relationship with radical jihadists and the Muslim Brotherhood front groups?
