Expert on Islam and Arabic, Dr Denis MacEoin on his new Policy Exchange report dealing with extremist Muslim literature doing the rounds in mainstream British mosques. The important point to note is that the literature was collected by young Muslims - just in case anyone thought this was a 'Zionist plot'!
'For those of you who may have wondered where I've been for the past six months, here is the answer. I've been working on an extensive report on Islamic hate and intolerant literature found in a range of British mosques. The report has just been published by the think tank Policy Exchange, from whose website the full text can be downloaded (http://www.policyexchange.org.uk/). The title is 'Hijacking British Islam: How extremist literature is subverting mosques in the UK'.
Several teams of young Muslims visited 100 (our of 1600) mosques throughout the UK and obtained books and pamphlets. Theses were then examined and translated (where necessary) by a small team including myself, and the final report was then written by me. Selected texts form a large part of the final publication. It appears in hard copy form on Friday.
The material we found is separatist and hate-centred. Jews, Christians, and even lax Muslims are to be treated with contempt, and apostates can, in theory, be put to death. The same applies to homosexuals and adulterers/adulteresses. Obeying British law can make someone an apostate. Women are to be treated as distinctly inferior to men, should be kept in their homes, and must restrict themselves to activities for which they are considered suited: housekeeping, childbearing and rearing. There is a lot of anti-Semitic material, some of it from school textbooks.
The MCB etc are already in a state of denial, proving yet again that they prefer to defend extremism or find excuses for mosques and centres where it is found than grasp the nettle and work to root it out.
I hope you all enjoy reading it.
