Hillary Clinton has held numerous campaign related events at a controversial Broward mosque. On Thursday, the campaign will hold a phonebanking event at the Darul Uloom Institute in Pembroke Pines. According to the official campaign website, “We know that people talking directly to other people is the most effective way to encourage people to vote. Join us as we make phone calls to supporters in our neighborhood–RSVP now (and bring a friend!)”
It’s unclear if Hillary Clinton is aware of Dario Uloom’s history with radical Islamic terrorism.
Before he was killed by the Pakistani Army in 2014, Adnan Shukrijumah was at the top of the FBI Most Wanted List for years. According to NPR, Shukrijumah was a spiritual leader at Darul Uloom. “About three miles from the Shukrijumah house in Florida, there’s an Islamic Center called the Darul Uloom Institute. It is run by Sheik Shafayat Mohammed, a heavyset, jovial man from Trinidad. He hired Adnan Shukrijumah’s father — who is now deceased — as a religious instructor years ago. And he says Adnan was allowed to lead prayers at the mosque.” Adnan Shukrijumah was an al-Qaeda “mastermind who plotted numerous attacks on New York transportation targets.
The leader of Darul Uloom, Sheik Mohammed, is no stranger to controversy. He wrote the God sent the Christmas 2004 tsunami to Indonesia because it was a modern Sodom and Gommarah. He called it a “gay paradise.”
Other worshippers at Darul Uloom include “Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla and Imran Mandhai.
Last year, the Sun-Sentinel reported Mandhai had been deported to his native Pakistan. “Imran Mandhai, 32, of Hollywood, was arrested in May 2002 and later admitted he conspired to bomb a National Guard Armory and Florida Power & Light substations in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.” Mandhai spent 14 years inside the supermax prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.
With plenty of non-controversial mosques in South Florida, it’s a mystery why Hillary Clinton picked the most notorious one.
