Radicalism widespread in U.S. mosques

Posted by Richard on February 27, 2008

An undercover investigation of American mosques and Islamic schools by the Center for Security Policy has released some disturbing — but not surprising to those of us who've been paying attention — preliminary findings. Among the first 100 mosques and schools the project examined, more than three-quarters are "hotbeds of anti-Western extremism," according to WorldNetDaily:

Frank Gaffney, a former Pentagon official who runs the Center for Security Policy, says the results of the survey have not yet been published. But he confirmed that "the vast majority" are inciting insurrection and jihad through sermons by Saudi-trained imams and anti-Western literature, videos and textbooks.

The project, headed by David Yerushalmi, a lawyer and expert on sharia law, has finished collecting data from the first cohort of 102 mosques and schools. Preliminary findings indicate that almost 80 percent of the group exhibit a high level of sharia-compliance and jihadi threat, including:

  • Ultra-orthodox worship in which women are separated from men in the prayer hall and must enter the mosque from a separate, usually back, entrance; and are required to wear hijabs.
  • Sermons that preach women are inferior to men and can be beaten for disobedience; that non-Muslims, particularly Jews, are infidels and inferior to Muslims; that jihad or support of jihad is not only a Muslim's duty but the noblest way, and suicide bombers and other so-called "martyrs" are worthy of the highest praise; and that an Islamic caliphate should one day encompass the U.S.
  • Solicitation of financial support for jihad.
  • Bookstores that sell books, CDs and DVDs promoting jihad and glorifying martyrdom.

The Mapping Shari'a in America Project is in the early stages of these undercover investigations. Considering how many of America's estimated 2,300 mosques, madrassas, and Islamic centers are financed and directed or influenced by Saudi Wahabbis or the Muslim Brotherhood, I suspect the percentage found to be promoting jihad, a global caliphate, and radical extremist beliefs is likely to remain alarmingly high.
