Most U.S. Mosques Teach Violence
humanevents.com & jihadwatch.com ^ | 06/14/2011 | Robert Spencer

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 States—like churches they were established by different organizations and that is okay—but 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 Project’s 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 others—that 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 they’re using and what they’re 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 don’t 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.

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.

We are going to see more reports soon indicating that the 80% figure was too low.

Count on it.

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.

Saw a few of them this afternoon, after work.

Two women and two men, walking down the street.

The women walked TEN FEET behind the men.

What’s up with that?

Mosques are foreign bases, pure and simple, on US soil. They are forward bases for islam, the 7th century sociopolitical system of tyrannical control of the individual and society that uses religious trappings as a 'cover.' They are national security risks.

I assume the FBI has bugged every mosque in America. To not do so is placing America and its citizens at risk. Is the FBI and NSA monitoring the mosques? Do we have HUMINT attending Friday 'prayer' services? Should we call Holder and ask?

Oh, I forgot, how's that Muslim Outreach going at NASA? Who do I call to find out how that's going?

Mu supposition is that their women enjoy their servile position. Islam has been doing it for a thousand years, they must enjoy it.

In the case opf Farrakhan’s Black Muslims, perhaps it is just because they actually have a husband,instead of just a stud, that they put up with it. These are black women who came up as Americans and joind into this cult later. Perhaps mentally deficient.

YES! perfect perfect summary!

even the original article, implies these people, who study their scripture as intently as any sola scriptura Baptist,
are misunderstanding their OWN religion!

it is NOT a “tiny minority of extremists” misinterpreting and advocating on their own:

“the use of violence in the pursuit of a Sharia-based political order or advocated violent jihad as a duty “

the truth is, that is clearly and directly in the Quran, and confirmed by ahadith and the Sira!
(ESPECIALLY if you understand the “nicer” parts of Islam are not “optional”, but have been specifically abrogated!)

...as culpeper says brilliantly:

” just read the koran, its pretty freaking obvious. “

i think the muslim women rationalize it. certainly many are enthusiastic.

but, Islam has a fundamental blackmail for them.
it isn’t God, but their HUSBAND who decides if they will go to heaven. Islam teaches if the husband isn’t happy with them, they go to hell for eternity. powerful incentive, if you believe it...

and, for the ones who DON’T believe it,
there is simple fear. like the American muslima i knew, who told me point blank, she didn’t believe in Islam, and thought it was evil.
she said she would NEVER marry a muslim man.
...yet, she with a good job, and Master’s degree, was terrified to simply be seen with me and my child in a Chuckie Cheese. She told me goodbye later, because:
“Now they are watching me more closely than ever.”

fear is also a powerful motivator...
