(PATRIOTUPDATE) — An Islamic Center and Mosque is being built in Murfreesboro, TN smack dab in the buckle of the Bible belt. The Imam, “Dr. Ossama Mohamed Bahloul, is a graduate of Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies (Usool el Din) ranking top 4 in a class of 200.” Why did such a powerful Imam choose to settle in TN instead of say, Egypt, Jordan, even Los Angeles? Proselytizing? Terrorist Training Camp?
The new Mosque is being built about two feet away from the Grace Baptist Church. Odd choice of location, but there are acres of empty land surrounding the mosque that could be used for expansion.
