5/19/10 U.S. Census Bureau renews its vows with 9/11 MOSQUE, funds and celebrates Islamic terrorists in Washington DC area.
The Census Bureau has signed a two-year, $582,000 lease with Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, where top al-Qaida recruiter Anwar Awlaki ministered to the Pentagon hijackers and the Fort Hood terrorist as a mosque leader.
The federal government is financially supporting and officially embracing a radical mosque in the Washington suburbs that is directly connected to al-Qaida and the 9/11 attacks as well as other terrorism.
Meanwhile, the State Department is taking diplomatic trainees on tours of the large Falls Church, Va., mosque, while featuring it in a video as a model depiction of Islam in America – even as the Department of HomelandSecurity warns that it is a terrorist front. Read more: WND
The U. S. Census Bureau leases 6,654 square feet of space from the Saudi-financed Dar al-Hijrah, which has been labeled “America’s most radical mosque.” The cost of the space to taxpayers is $23,000 a month.

The lease agreement with Dar al Hijrah shows that the government has been paying rent for the use of this space on Edsall Road in Alexandria, Virginia since November 2008. A spokeswoman for the General Services Administration which oversees the Census Bureau refused to comment on the lease.
Fairfax County property records show that Dar al-Hijrah purchased the property in May 2008 for $5.8 million. Federal officials are well aware of the radical nature of the mosque which was built in Falls Church, Virginia, with funding from Saudi Arabia.
A 2002 government report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection states that Dar al-Hijrah is “associated with Islamic extremists” and serves “as a front for Hamas activities in the U.S.” Similarly, a 2007 government report states that the mosque has been under federal investigation for providing “aid and comfort” to so-called “bad organizations and members.”
Dar al-Hijrah has served as a magnet for militant Islamists. Over the years it has attracted an alarming number of terror supporters, terror facilitators, terror fundraisers, terror co-conspirators, and actual terrorists – – including at least two of the 9/11 hijackers who crashed the plane into the Pentagon.
The leaders and founders of the mosque have been accused of providing support to al Qaeda, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Hamas. The phone number of the mosque was found in Hamburg, Germany within the apartment of Ramzi Bin ql-Shibh, a key planner of the 9/11 attacks and the roommate of Mohammad Atta.
Dar al-Hijrah served as the spiritual home of Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist, who murdered 13 soldiers and wounded 30 more on the military base at Fort Hood, Texas.
Anwar N. Awlaqi served for many years as the imam of Dar al-Hijrah. He has been singled out as the source of inspiration not only for Major Hasan, but also Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallah, the Nigerian underpants bomber.
But Yemen’s government has announced it will not extradite Anwar al-Awlaki, the U.S.-born jihadist cleric who is credited with inspiring the recent wave of anti-American terrorist plots by al Qaeda recruits.
Mr. al-Awlaki also was involved in recruiting Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian national who is charged in the Christmas Day attempt to detonate a bomb aboard a Northwest Airline flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. The Washington Times first reported in December that Mr. al-Awlaki personally “blessed” the operation.
Faisal Shahzad, the suspect in the attempted car bombing in New York’s Times Square, reportedly told investigators that he was inspired by Mr. al-Awlaki’s online sermons on jihad. LINK
