After 9/11, Mosques Popping Up Across America
By Julio Severo
Does Islamic terror bring mosque growth? The fact is that after the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks, many new mosques are popping up across the United States, and this growth defies logic and contrasts with the church growth movement, which had not connection to terror.
Virginia Beach, the famous headquarters of Christian Broadcasting Network and its equally famous “The 700 Club,” is now poised for its first mosque, the Crescent Community Center.

Earlier this year, Turkey’s Islamist Prime Minister traveled to the US to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the mosque.

No, the US government, whose nation was once a Protestant power, would never do for a Christian church abroad what Muslim governments do for mosques abroad.
While Christian churches are being destroyed on a near daily basis in Muslim countries throughout the world, the US government is investing millions of dollars to rebuild overseas Islamic mosques.
Can you imagine Turkey or Saudi Arabia investing millions of dollars to rebuild overseas Christian churches? While the US funds mosque rebuilding abroad, Turkey and other Islamic nations fund mosque growth in America.
The Clarion Project reports that about 1,200 mosques are now operating in the U.S., and almost 80 percent of them were built after 9/11.
The majority of those mosques are led by Wahhabi clerics — from the same branch of Islam that Osama bin Laden followed.
From America, they intend to spread mosque growth around the world.
Encouraging mosque growth is a strange way for America to fight terror, which is largely Islamic in nature.
