PRESS RELEASE

Subject:  FBI Sting Operation Arrested US Capital Would-Be Terrorist

 

Washington, DC, Feb 18 2012.  According to news sources on the morning of Friday, 17 February FBI agents arrested a man from Morocco who allegedly was planning to bomb the US Capital that day. We are all relieved that the community was not at risk at any time from the planned attack.  We have learned from law enforcement that the man was under FBI surveillance and was not working with Al-Qaeda but actually the subject of a counter terrorism "sting" operation.

 

We are thankful to local law-enforcement officials who immediately came to Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center to secure the mosque from potential hate crimes after reports were circulated that the man had prayed in a Northern Virginia mosque that morning.  

 

Due to the close working relationship the mosque has established with elected officials and law enforcement, representatives from the FBI field office called the mosque leadership prior to their press conference to notify them that the man in custody was "not a regular at any mosque including Dar Al-Hijrah" and that there was "no connection between the man in custody and Dar Al-Hijrah".

 

The Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic center remains engaged in supporting law-enforcement and will work to safeguard our community from any injustice.  Dar Al-Hijrah remains committed to the spirit of nonviolent engagement for social change and denounces terrorism in all of its forms.
