The title of this article should have been:
Obama's diplomatic arm reaches into the sewers of E London to import Jihadis.
Everybody and I mean everybody should know about this, especially this.
Do you think it will get any airtime?

U.S. Ambassador Louis B. Susman greets officials at the East London Mosque Monday.
The U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom visited and praised a well-known extremist mosque in London Monday
, and invited its youth to participate in an embassy-funded initiative to travel to the United States.
The East London Mosque(ELM) hosted recent speeches by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula leader and now Specially Designated Global Terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki,
a prominent leader
of extremist group Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh, and a wide variety of other radical leaders. That’s beside hate and terrorism promoted by the mosque’s leaders and the Islamic Forum for Europe (IFE), a group headquartered in the mosque complex
U.S. ambassador Louis B. Susman went to ELM, which, in combination with the adjoined London Muslim Centre, holds
more than 5,000 worshippers. During his visit, Susman said
he had “great admiration” for the mosque and was “looking forward” to a dialogue with community members. He also invited young people from the community to enroll in the U.S. embassy’s cultural and interfaith program, which coordinates trips for young leaders to the United States.
ELM’s long history of radical ties was the focus of a major documentary
on Britain’s Channel 4 in March. A cursory search
on Google of the terms “East London Mosque Radical” generates multiple hits that show the mosque’s radical connections. Recent reports have also appeared in major British papers such as the Independent
and the Telegraph
The State Department has not responded to a request for comment.
Mosque officials were told of concerns about Awlaki’s activities and his ban from the United States before they included him in the Jan. 2, 2009, event. Much of those concerns were included in an article
in the Telegraph
But published accounts and writings by mosque officials show their sympathies for Awlaki
. On Nov. 5, 2008, IFE leader Azad Ali called Awlaki “one of my favorite speakers and scholars.” On Nov. 19, Ali also wrote that by reading Awlaki’s blog “one cannot help but feel his frustration at the constant denial of legitimate Islamic principles.”
