FRANCE: France Closes Radical Mosques – Why Were They Allowed By Putative Mainstream Or Moderate Muslim Community? Why Did Hundreds Die Before France Acted?

This is how Islam imposes its oppressive way of life on humanity. They hate our Western free minded, unique, fun way of life and make sure to tell us that they are "offended" by Western values. This creep is preaching an Islamic sermon in the USA and blaming the French government for Islamic terrorism because they said 'no' to Islamic women wearing burqa's, being fully covered at the beach. How absurd is that. They make themselves victims. Such bs! Non-Islamic values are PROHIBITED, BANNED in Muslim nations and many will get us the death penalty for trying to defy their Islamic laws. This doesn't make me a bigot to point this truth out to you. You need to know Islamist say we can force ourselves on your infidel nation, but you will never impose yourselves on our Islamic nation. Get ready to see Islamic women wearing black burqa's across America and on our beloved beaches too. I'd love to see the feminist Hillary supporters in America defying their beloved Marxist and Islamist friends when they get told to shut up and cover up!

"In a Friday sermon delivered at the Az-Zahraa Islamic Center in Detroit, Michigan, Iraqi-born Shiite Imam Hassan Qazwini said that "the first to be blamed [for extremism] is the French government itself." "They are infringing on the freedom of over five million Muslims, further alienating them and creating the breeding ground for radicalization," he said. "I do not justify terrorism in France, but... the French government is an accomplice, creating the ground in which extremism is promoted and encouraged." The sermon, which was attended by several Iraqi dignitaries, was delivered on August 28 and posted on the Youtube channel of the Islamic Institute of America."

On November 4, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced the closure of four mosques in the Paris suburbs Yvelines, Seine-Saint-Denis and Val-de-Marne. The mosques were suspected of promoting Islamist radicalism.

The closures were made on the basis of article 8 of the state of emergency legislation, which has been in place since the terrorist attacks of 13 November 2015 in which 130 people were slaughtered. The article provides for “the closure of places of worship where advocacy of hatred, violence, terrorism or justification of terrorism” takes place.

The Al-Islah mosque in Villiers-sur-Marne housed a clandestine Quranic school and was frequented by a dozen people convicted of participating in a jihadist recruiting network.

In Yvelines, a prayer room in the Ecquevilly district was described by authorities as an influential hub of the Salafist movement that promoted discrimination, hatred and violence.

In Seine-Saint-Denis, the Ar Rawda and Masjid Al Fath mosques were closed because worshippers were suspected of involvement in plotting terrorist attacks and recruiting jihadists. The Friday prayer service at the Ar Rawda mosque was attended by up to 600 people including members of a jihadist cell that was planning an attack in France. Many worshippers at the Masjid Al Fath mosque were also linked to jihad.

The minister’s press release indicated the four mosques “under cover of worship, hosted meetings intended to promote a radical ideology, contrary to the values of the French Republic and likely to pose a serious risk to national security and public order.”

In August, Cazeneuve announced the closure of 20 mosques.

Why were these radical mosques not closed down by the putative mainstream or moderate Muslim community? Why did it take the slaughter of hundreds of innocent French people before the authorities took the necessary steps to arrest the spread of a toxic ideology that has been gestating in France and Europe for decades?

This toxic ideology has its roots in Islam, albeit an extreme version of Islam. Its followers consider themselves as doctrinal purists and it is incumbent on mainstream Islam - if such a movement exists - to take the necessary steps to stamp it out. For the moment and until proven otherwise, this does not seem to be the case. Moderate Muslims should therefore not be surprised if they are tarred with the same brush as the jihadists and organizations such as CAIR contribute to this by promoting separatism instead of integration.
