Mosque Near Ohio State Campus Has History Of Attendees With Terror Ties
At Daily Caller by Kerry Pickett --
Columbus, Ohio, is no stranger to attacks like the one seen at Ohio State University Monday and a controversial mosque just a mile from OSU has already been at he center of six separate terror cases.
It is presently unknown if the suspect at OSU Monday, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, attended the Masjid Omar Ibn El Khattab mosque, but the mosque has a history of former attendees who have been involved in terror activities.
The Masjid Omar mosque was home to one of the largest known al-Qaeda cells since 9/11, reported PJ Media’s Patrick Poole back in August. Although only three members — Lyman Faris, Nuradin Abdi and Christopher Paul — were charged, it is known that there were over a dozen members of the cell.
Poole, a resident of Ohio, told Daily Caller the mosque is popular with OSU students.
