On October 5, 2004 The Boston Globe reported, "a group opposing the Islamic Society of Boston's proposed $22 million mosque in Roxbury yesterday launched a website citing published allegations that the society is linked to terrorists and accusing it of teaching a radical Islamic message. Organizers of the website, sponsored by a group calling itself Citizens for Peace and Tolerance, planned to hold a news conference today to announce efforts to 'break the silence' surrounding the Islamic Society's Cultural Center project under construction on Malcolm X Boulevard... Leaders of the group say they want to know whether certain mosque leaders and founders have links to terrorist organizations, as the Boston Herald and Fox News have reported."
