Summary: 

Children at Salafist mosque schools in the Netherlands are taught Sharia law, and are taught the death penalty is appropriate for people with a different religion or belief system, according to a study by Nieuwsuur and NRC. The report has parliamentarians concerned.

Nieuwsuur and NRC investigated dozens of educational centers that are Salafist or strongly influenced by Salafism. Over a thousand children receive lessons on Islam at these institutions at night or over the weekend. The news agencies looked at the teaching material for different age groups and found that teachers throughout the country glorify a system where Sharia law and punishment applies. At various mosque schools, pupils are taught that young Muslims must leave this "unbelieving country" and move to an Islamic country.

In lessons and from books, children are taught which groups and types of people are "enemies" or "unbelievers". The lessons also teach that adulterers, homosexuals, apostates and so-called 'wizards' deserve the death penalty. Children have to do multiple choice exercises in which they must choose which punishment is applicable - a. Whipping, b. Stoning, or C. Death by sword, according to the news agencies.

“The Moroccan-Dutch community is also shocked.”

Really? Where has there ever been a tradition of Islam that rejected Sharia? What did Said Bouharrou expect the mosque schools to teach? Or is his shock for non-Muslim audiences only? Will there be any investigation to determine the answers to such questions, or would that be “Islamophobic”?
