Tim Kaine, local Dems raise money for controversial mosque 

Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church is holding its annual fundraising dinner on Saturday, April 3, and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine is on the guest list.

So is Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-11th, Rep. Jim Moran, D-10th, Fairfax Board of Supervisors chairwoman Sharon Bulova, and Supervisor Penny Gross, D-Mason.

Frank Gaffney, head of the Center for Security Policy, posted the flyer on Breitbart’s Big Government blog.

This is the same mosque where Anwar Al-Awlaki, the former imam to accused Fort Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan (himself also a former mosque member) and mentor to accused Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, once preached.

This is the same mosque that Ahmed Abu-Ali, who was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for conspiring with members of al- Qaeda to assassinate President George W. Bush, once attended.

This is the same mosque whose board members included Dr. Esam Omeish of Alexandria, who was forced to resign from a Virginia immigration commission to which he was appointed by Kaine after videos of him supporting jihad surfaced on YouTube.

The same mosque where undercover “Mapping Sharia” investigator and faux convert Dave Gaubbatz was given reading materials that called for the killing of apostates.

The same mosque whose current imam, Shaker Elsayed, openly supports suicide bombers and the destruction of Israel.

Gaffney says Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va, and state Del. Kaye Kory, D-Falls Church, both had their names removed from the invitation after he contacted them. But just days prior to the mosque fundraiser, Kaine and the other Democrats were still listed as honored guests.

Will the money Kaine & Co. allow themselves to be used to raise wind up funding some future Christmas Day surprise?
