The US Mosque Obama Has Chosen For His First Presidential Visit Is Tied To The Muslim Brotherhood

From the Daily Caller:
The Baltimore mosque President Obama has chosen as the first U.S.-based mosque to visit during his presidency has deep ties to extremist elements, including to the Muslim Brotherhood. 
The White House announced on Saturday that Obama will visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) on Wednesday. He has visited several mosques overseas as president but has resisted visiting one in the homeland. 
The purpose of the trip, according to the White House, is to “celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life.” 
But ISB is a curious choice for Obama’s first domestic visit. The mosque is a member of a network of mosques controlled by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a Muslim civil rights group named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror case. 
Several executives with that organization were convicted of sending money to aid the terrorist group Hamas. 
An imam who served at ISB for a total of 15 years has also been a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood network and has worked for an Islamic relief group that was designated as a terrorist organization by the Treasury Department in 2004. 
Mohammad Adam el-Sheikh, who served two stints as ISB’s imam, from 1983 to 1989 and from 1994 to 2003, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan in the 1970s. He also co-founded the Muslim American Society, a Falls Church, Va.-based group that is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. 
While in Baltimore, el-Sheikh served as a regional director for the Islamic American Relief Agency. That group’s parent organization is the Islamic African Relief Agency, which the Treasury Department says provided funds to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Hamas and other terrorist organizations. 
After leaving Baltimore, el-Sheikh served as imam at the infamous Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church. That mosque has a lengthy roster of known terrorists and terrorist sympathizers. Its imam during much of the 1990s was Mohammed al-Hanooti. He was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which killed six people. 
Dar al-Hijrah came under the control of Anwar al-Awlaki in 2001.

Preparing the 'public opinion' for the real activity.

Can anyone identify an existing mosque in the US which make such a presidential visit more palatable?

Islam is the problem and presents an existential threat so long as it exists. Establishments which promote, protect or spawn more Islam or anything related to Islam present a growing danger to society as we know it.

No, I would not be able to do that. I seem to recall a study back in the 2006-2007 time period which indicated that 90% of Mosques searched yielded hate literature on display and for sale.

The interactive map of jihadi mosques does not show the Baltimore one.

Pastorious, please see that is the study you are looking for.

WHere does Zuhdi Jasser go to Mosque? That's your mosque.

This absurd situation was actually locked in the week after 9/11 when W kept braying that Islam was a religion of peace, and being seen with Siddiqui in DC.

I get the whole thing, we all do, the problem is that the facts do not bear out this policy.

And we all know what Darwin sez about those who cannot adapt to new facts, and new environments
