Turkish solution

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Apr 24, 2007 at 22:58

I forget which Turkish Prime Minister employed this, but it makes a lot of sense: when an imam of a mosque fomented armed jihad, the government of the day closed the mosque for repairs. Sometimes the message was received, but not all the times. So, in all honesty, if that can be done with mosques, why not indoctrination centres masquerading as schools?
