What Is Being Taught at Islamic Schools and Mosques in the West?

Every time jihadi terrorists murder innocent people, political commentators and analysts rightfully start trying to find answers to questions such as:

  • “What made the terrorists do that?”
  • “How were they radicalized?”
  • “Where were they brainwashed?”

UK: Police Will Not Be Taking Shoes Off When Raiding Mosques

After the film circulated last week, of officers trying to keep order in a brawl being obstructed by worshippers more concerned about uniform shoes than the fighting within and without, some of us predicted that the result would be diversity training for the junior officers and grovelling apologies from the senior officers. However, during the inevitable ‘meeting with community leaders’ I get the impression that the opposite happened. This is the BBC, an organ which will always uphold diversity and PC against English custom and common sense.

Qatar, Saudi Arabia to Islamize One of Europe’s Greatest Cathedrals

In 550 the Cathedral of Córdoba was a Christian basilica, dedicated to a saint; then, in 714, it was occupied by the Muslims, who destroyed it and converted it into the Great Mosque of Córdoba during the reign of Caliph Abd al Rahman I. The site was returned to Catholic worship by King Ferdinand III in 1523 and became the current great Cathedral of Córdoba, one of the most important sites of Western Christianity. Now an alliance of secularists and Islamists are trying to turn the church back to Islamic worship.
