Posted on 06/14/2011 2:01:25 PM PDT by Mount Athos
A new study has demonstrated that 80% of mosques right in this country are teaching jihad warfare and Islamic supremacism.
Researchers Mordechai Kedar and David Yerushalmi reported in the Summer 2011 issue of Middle East Quarterly about a new survey that found that 51% of mosques had texts that either advocated the use of violence in the pursuit of a Sharia-based political order or advocated violent jihad as a duty that should be of paramount importance to a Muslim. Another 30% of mosques in the United States had only texts that were moderately supportive of violence, while only 19% had no violent texts at all.
This yet again contradicts the universally held assumption that U.S. mosques are completely benign institutions, in all respects equivalent to churches and synagogues. As long ago as 1998, Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, a Sufi leader, visited 114 mosques in the United States. Then he gave testimony before a State Department open forum in January 1999 declaring that Islamic supremacists controlled most mosques in America .
The most dangerous thing that is going on now in these mosques, Kabbani said, that has been sent upon these mosques around the United Stateslike churches they were established by different organizations and that is okaybut the problem with our communities is the extremist ideology. Because they are very active, they took over the mosques, and we can say that they took over more than 80% of the mosques that have been established in the U.S. And there are more than 3,000 mosques in the U.S. So it means that the methodology or ideology of extremists has been spread to 80% of the Muslim population, but not all of them agree with it.
Terrorism expert Yehudit Barsky affirmed the same thing in 2005, saying that 80% of the mosques in this country have been radicalized by Saudi money and influence. The Center for Religious Freedom in 2005 found a massive distribution of hateful jihadist and Islamic supremacist material in mosques in this country. The Mapping Sharia Projects 2008 study likewise found that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule.
And in June 2008, federal investigators found that the Islamic Saudi Academy in Virginia, despite promises to stop teaching such material, was still using books that advocated that apostates from Islam be executed and that it was permissible for Muslims to kill and seize the property of polytheists.
What is most arresting about these studies is their unanimity. Although each was conducted independently of the others, they all came to the same conclusion: that around three-quarters of mosques in this country are teaching what amounts to sedition. And yet the mainstream media has shown about as much interest in the new survey as they did in the othersthat is, none at all.
Maybe they figure that it could be worse. After all, in recent years we have seen mosques used to preach hatred, to spread exhortations to terrorist activity, to house a bomb factory, to store weapons, to disseminate messages from Osama bin Laden, to demand that non-Muslims conform to Islamic dietary restrictions, to fire on American troops, to fire upon Indian troops and to train jihadists. But most of that took place outside the United States, so who cares? We know the mosques inside this country are different! And on what do we base this certainty? Why, nothing, nothing at all except for the bland and smiling assurances of Muslim leaders in this country that mosques are simply places of worship, no more, no less, and that anyone who thinks otherwise is a greasy Islamophobe.
It is time to be more realistic. At the very least, reporters all over the country should be asking pointed questions of local mosque leaders about the books theyre using and what theyre teaching in general. And they should call on them to give honest, verifiable answers.
It is more likely, however, that this study, like the others, will simply be ignored. But dont let that happen. Call upon your elected officials and the media to take notice of this new survey. Our freedoms depend on it.
Are mosques becoming bases for the overthrow of the society? There is a solution to that problem.
What do these people think? A mosque is like that little protestant church down the street??????? A Mosque is a Capitol building for the Islamic invading forces, A bank,A court system.A school of war and the military arm and training facility.
We need to take Barney Fife’s advice:
NIP IT IN THE BUD!
Exactly: Stupid people believe these people are moderates. These people read their Koran and that Koran demands they practice to either convert everyone or kill them.
Believe what their book says, not what they are play acting.
We have Freedom of Religiopnr in this Country,but this is not a religion , it is a political scheme to comquer what they can of the world.

Nice post,People need to wake up, NOW!
We are going to see more reports soon indicating that the 80% figure was too low.
Count on it.
domestic jihadi ping
We have one of these people in the White House and a good chance he may go back in 2012.
God help us. We need Him.
And as a nation we´re doing what about it?...
Islam is a war plan.
just read the koran, its pretty freaking obvious.
Correct. It isnt so much a religion, but rather a theocracy movement.
Agreed,we need divine intervention.
who would have thunk it .... so strange and unlike them from what we have seen all over the world in the history of Islam .. the religion of peace.
Oh yeah .. by the way since 9/11 the “religion of peace” has been responsible for more than 18,000 deaths by terrorism.
