In a mosque? What? But…Islam is a religion of peace! Terrorists aren’t Muslim! Jihad terror has nothing, nothing whatsoever to do with Islam! No doubt Pope Francis is on his way to Peshawar right now to explain to the Muslims in this mosque that they are misunderstanding their religion, and that true Islam and the proper understanding of the Qur’an reject every form of violence!

Summary: 

Somehow these Muslims seem to have gotten the idea that Islam had something to do with violence. I trust that Pope Francis and John Kerry and other learned imams of that caliber are traveling to Germany now to explain to these members of “The true religion” group how they’re misunderstanding their peaceful religion.

Summary: 

Q: In the MRM’s inaugural press conference, you said American mosques that reject the MRM’s declaration of principles are part of the problem, while those that accept the principles are part of the solution. How many mosques did the MRM approach? Did most of these mosques accept or reject these principles?

A: We spent significant resources on this outreach over a period of ten months. We reached out through snail mail, e-mail, and telephone to over 3,000 mosques and over 500 known public American Muslims. We received only 40-plus rather dismissive responses from our outreach, and sadly less than ten of them were positive. In fact, one mosque in South Carolina left us a vicious voice mail threatening our staff if we contacted them again.

Admin: The response from contacting over 3000 mosques says it all! Placing faith in reforming Islam is like following a rainbow.

 

Summary: 

Magdi Allam said European governments need to move far beyond deportations and target terror at its source in order to prevent more terror attacks. 

The Egyptian-born politician, who converted from Islam to Christianity in 2008, said it was time to stop following the myth of “moderate Islam” and take some real action.

He spoke before attending a protest march against the construction of a new mosque in Pisa, highlighting the tough treatment of mosques by the Tunisian government after last year’s deadly beach attack. 

Summary: 
  • Anjem Choudary has gone to jail. He was the most visible part of the problem. But he was not the greatest or deepest problem in this area. That problem is shown when two extremist clerics with pre-medieval views come to Britain they are welcomed by an ignorant British establishment.
  • "These people teach murder and hate. For me personally I find it sad that a country like England would allow cowards like these men in. Why are they allowing people [in] that give fuel to the fire they are fighting against?" — Shahbaz Taseer, the son of Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, who was murdered for opposing Pakistan's blasphemy laws.
  • "They have got hundreds of thousands of followers in the UK," the imam of the Madina Mosque and Islamic Centre in Oldham, Zahoor Chishti, said of the two clerics.
