Time To Crack Down On Islamic State-Supporting Mosques

Islamic Community Center of Phoenix
Jihad Network: Washington insists that homegrown Islamic State terrorists are radicalized in the faceless world of the Internet. But there's more to it. Too many are tied to radical U.S. mosques that churn out terrorists.
