In the last 100 years, only one new church has been given permission to build in Turkey (albeit on top of a graveyard). But in America, under the Obama Regime, Turkey is set to open a monstrous $100 million Islamic indoctrination and jihad training center in Maryland. Built on a 15-acre site, the Turkish Cultural Center will be the largest and most ostentatious example of Islamic supremacism in the Western hemisphere.
ANADOLU AGENCY (h/t Rob E) The presidents of Turkey and the U.S. will open the Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center in Maryland. “During a phone call, President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan asked President (Barack) Obama to accompany him in opening the center together and Obama accepted his offer.
Churches in Turkey on the Verge of Extinction
Muslim Link The cost of the 5-buidling complex is estimated to be around $100 million according to sources familiar with the engineering aspects of the project.
The Turkish American Culture and Civilization Center (TACC) is a project of the government of Turkey and is meant to”serve as a social, cultural, and religious center for all visitors, including activities for the promotion and introduction of the values of the Turkish Civilization” according to an information packet distributed by TACC.
The TACC Center will consist of five main buildings: a mosque constructed using 16th century classical Ottoman architecture that can hold 760 worshipers; a two-story, 19,990 SF Cultural Center Building including a 220-seating performance hall; a 9,850 SF recreational building with a 180-seat restaurant and traditional coffee shop; a 43,450 SF traditional Turkish bath for up to 22 people at a time and indoor pool and sports center; and 18,500 SF of guest housing including 16 one-bedroom apartment units.
The complex will have very limited above ground parking and most cars will park in the 150,700 SF underground parking garage which gives direct access to all the main buildings. A few traditionally designed residential buildings, Turkish gardens and fountains, and outdoor recreational areas will also be a part of the complex.
They were warned countless times by the State Department not to go to Yemen, then warned again in February to get out if they were already there. Yet they chose to stay, and now are demanding that Obama use the U.S. military to rescue them. So far their demands have been falling on deaf ears.
Obama wouldn’t rescue 4 Americans including an ambassador and a Navy SEAL in Benghazi, why should he rescue you?
CNN Muna Mansour is from Buffalo in upstate New York. Her family is among the dozens of Americans caught in the crossfire of warring parties in Yemen. And although many other countries evacuated their citizens, India most notably ferrying out around 5,000, the United States has said it is too dangerous for them to directly evacuate American Muslims.
“I was there when the Indians picked up 200 of their people from the port. It was embarrassing. We were just sitting there waiting for someone to come and say ‘OK where are the Americans, let’s pick them up,’ ” she said. “I called the Riyadh embassy,” she adds, referring to the U.S. Embassy in neighboring Saudi Arabia. “I told them there were about 75 families here waiting at the port. My family has been waiting there for two weeks. We ran out of money, we ran out of food.”
The State Department said it is too risky to conduct an evacuation of citizens from the area. “We have to make a decision based on the security situation and what is feasible to do,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said earlier this month. “And given the situation in Yemen is quite dangerous and unpredictable, doing something like sending in military assets even for an evacuation could put U.S. citizen lives at greater risk.”
A group of U.S. organizations, including designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination League, have filed a lawsuit against the State Department and Defense Department over the government’s stance on evacuations.
