Reader comment on item: [Mosque Mischief and] Counting Mosques

Submitted by steveN (United States), May 21, 2012 at 22:34

It is important to understand not only the numbers of mosques and the growing petitions for taking over buildings such as churches in the UK, but also to discover the nature of the teachings in these places. There was recently a school in Canada that was discovered to be teaching antisemitic and antiwestern teachings to its students, and this is not the first time. There is also the KG Academy here in the US that had similar accusations. There have been numerous links between terror acts and documented radicalization of the perpetrator from their local mosques. I do not know of another religion that uses religious protection and freedoms to preach hatred against the US or other countries and raise funding for extremists abroad. The question that must be asked, after reading so much propaganda that has been found in US and UK mosques is, is Islamic teaching compatible with western nationalism?
