Long after it should have been, and only after it had "again become the city's 'main centre of attraction for the Jihad scene.'"
Hamburg has a "jihad scene." And it centered on a mosque. No one inside, however, seemed to manage to carry across the Qur'an's True, Peaceful Teachings. Yet another puzzle for the learned analysts. But of course, they won't puzzle over it. They won't think about it at all. If they did, it might make them start to wonder exactly how the teaching inside the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero will differ from the teaching inside this mosque.
"Mosque used by US attackers closed," from the UKPA, August 9:
A mosque which used to be a meeting place for the September 11 attackers has been closed, German authorities have said.
Officials said that the Taiba mosque in Hamburg and a cultural association connected with it have been banned.
The prayer house, formerly known as al-Quds mosque, used to be a meeting and recruiting point for some of the September 11 attackers before they moved to the US.
Weekly news magazine Focus reported that the mosque had again become the city's "main centre of attraction for the Jihad scene".
According to the report, some members who belonged to the Taiba group and prayed at the mosque have moved on to a radical training camp in Uzbekistan.
