8 of 10 Mosques in America Promote Jihad

Administrator’s note:

I’m grateful to Tom in NC for finding this information. There is a cancer growing inside America which we ignore at our peril. A landmark study (“Sharia and Violence in American Mosques,” The Middle East Quarterly, Summer 2011, Vol. 18, No. 3, pp. 59-72) — using objective survey data collected from a nationally representative, random statistical sample of 100 US mosques, covering 14 states and the District of Columbia – found that more than 8 out of 10 mosques in the United States promulgate jihad violence to impose the Islamic law of Sharia.

In other words, the much-touted “religion of peace” and “moderate Muslims” are myths or, in Islamic terminology, mere taqiyya — Koran sanctioned dissimulation or lying.

Mosques as Barracks in America

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan represents the triumphant Janus-faced approach to the fundamentalist global “Islamic revival.” He and his pious forbears have now completed dismantling Turkey’s secular experiment, and achieved the full-throated re-Islamization of Turkish society, an insidious process begun already within the decade after Ataturk’s death, in 1938.  When currying favor with gullible Western audiences, Erdogan burbles disingenuous ecumenical platitudes about the “Alliance of Civilizations.” But in reality, this is an Islamization campaign promoted by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, notably Saudi Arabia, which rewarded Erdogan, for his role in the Alliance, specifically, as “services to Islam,” with the “King Faisal International Prize,” considered the “Nobel prize” of the Arab world. Regardless, Erdogan has always aroused his Muslim constituencies by brazenly appealing to their deep-seated jihadist sentiments as he did while mayor of Istanbul, in 1997, delivering a fiery speech that reminded the masses of these words from the  poem “The Soldier’s Prayer,” written (in 1912) by Turkish nationalist poet Ziya Gokalp:

The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks and the faithful our army.

Cited appropriately by successful opponents of minaret construction in Switzerland, such rhetoric should now resonate uncomfortably in America with the online release Monday June 6, 2011 of alarming survey data from a representative national sample of US mosques.

During August 2007, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) released “Radicalization in the West — The Homegrown Threat.” This insightful 90-page report evaluated the threat that had become apparent since 9/11/2001, analyzing the roots of recent terror plots in the United States, from Lackawanna in upstate New York to Portland, Ore., to Fort Dix, NJ. Based upon these case-study analyses of individuals arrested for jihadist activity, the authors concluded that the “journey” of radicalization that produces homegrown jihadists began in so-called “Salafist” (“fundamentalist” to non-Muslims) mosques characterized by high levels of Sharia—Islamic Law—adherence. The landmark study just published, “Sharia and Violence in American Mosques” (Kedar M, Yerushalmi D. The Middle East Quarterly, Summer 2011, Vol. 18, No. 3, pp. 59-72) sought to expand considerably upon the NYPD’s post-hoc, case study approachsystematically gathering objective survey data, with much greater methodological rigor—and address these two a priori questions: I) Is there a robust association between observable measures of religious devotion, coupled to Sharia-adherence in US mosques, and the presence of violence-sanctioning materials at these mosques?; and II) Is there a robust association between the presence of violence-sanctioning materials at a mosque, and the advocacy of jihadism by the mosque’s leadership via recommending the study of these materials, or other manifest behaviors?

  1. I don’t want one more of these built on U.S. soil. Turn the ones that are here into swine lots and grain silos. This is how these slimy twisted freaks are staking thier territory here in the United States.

  2. lowtechgrannie

    As a minority religion supporting terrorism, violence and civil rights violations – all well-documented, there ought to be some sort of Western version of what the Muslims call dhimmitude, applied to them.

    Basically, that means Zero tolerance of Sharia Law and Zero tolerance or special consideration due their culture or religion. As members of a violence-prone minority, they must delcare in writing to recognize that American Laws supercede Sharia laws and cultural practices. The declarations to be kept on file by local county sheriffs.

  3. Building Mosques is the way they proselytize. I don’t know very much about the Koran, but it says that if Mosques are built in good faith, god will send the people to them, so they keep building them even in areas where they are only a few Muslims. God help us all if we get Sharia Law in the US. I have a cousin who works in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I’m sure nobody is going to believe this, but he said that there is a place in Riyadh they call Chop Chop Square, where they have public beheadings and where they take people to have their hands cut off. He said that they put down straw, do the executions, then clean up immediately and traffic proceeds as ususal. He said that this is Sharia Law.

  4. Mosques are meant as a visible threat, and intimidation. It’s the same as an animal showing it’s ass when it wants to impress a female, and about as intellectual

  5. So much for “the religion of peace”.
    So much for that elusive mysterious creature called the “moderate Muslim”.
    Myths, all.

  6. 8 out of 10? Why not say 100 percent we all know that it would not take much for the other 2 to flip and do whatever the hell the majority says. Does anyone really believe that a mosque would rat out another if they know something horrible would happen?

  7. There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.
