Ian Johnson is the author of the recent—and very timely—book, “A Mosque in Munich,” about a cadre of ex-Soviet Muslims who created a jihadist beachhead in Germany.
Following the closure of Hamburg’s “Al Quds” mosque which spawned Muhammad Atta, only this week, almost a full decade after the cataclysmic acts of jihad terrorism on 9/11/01, Johnson offered sage advice regarding the Ground Zero, and all other potential mosques, especially those to be constructed on public property. Johnson also identifies the nub of the problem for our era’s craven political leaders—summoning the moral courage to act on investigative findings:
When deciding whether a mosque should exist on public property, simply look at the people involved, figure out what they’ve done, and look into where the money comes from. Radicals leave a trail, and it really isn’t that hard to find it. The hard part is acting when you find the evidence.
