This past June, United States Representative Ted Deutch (D-Florida) paid a visit to the Islamic Center of Boca Raton, a radical mosque with a long history of terror and bigotry, and spoke in front of its leadership. The event must be exposed so that the Congressman and others in his position understand that participating in such an event is dangerous, because it provides legitimacy and cover for an institution which for over a decade has been documented to pose a genuine threat to the community.
On June 2nd, the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR) placed a video from one of its events on its Facebook page with the caption: 'Congressman Theodore Elliot Deutch visits ICBR.' The video portrayed Deutch speaking to a small group, while standing next to a video monitor and in back of a table, both with the green and white ICBR logo found on them. Seated to his left and looking intently on the Congressman was the President and co-founder of the mosque, Bassem Alhalabi.
