Not A Surprise To Those Of Us Who Watch

According to this article in World Net Daily:
Study: 3 in 4 U.S. mosques
preach anti-West extremism
Secret survey exposes widespread radicalism

An undercover survey of more than 100 mosques and Islamic schools in America has exposed widespread radicalism, including the alarming finding that 3 in 4 Islamic centers are hotbeds of anti-Western extremism, WND has learned.

The Mapping Sharia in America Project, sponsored by the Washington-based Center for Security Policy, has trained former counterintelligence and counterterrorism agents from the FBI, CIA and U.S. military, who are skilled in Arabic and Urdu, to conduct undercover reconnaissance at some 2,300 mosques and Islamic centers and schools across the country.
"So far of 100 mapped, 75 should be on a watchlist," an official familiar with the project said.

Many of the Islamic centers are operating under the auspices of the Saudi Arabian government and U.S. front groups for the radical Muslim Brotherhood based in Egypt.

Frank Gaffney, a former Pentagon official who runs the Center for Security Policy, says the results of the survey have not yet been published. But he confirmed that "the vast majority" are inciting insurrection and jihad through sermons by Saudi-trained imams and anti-Western literature, videos and textbooks.

The project, headed by David Yerushalmi*, a lawyer and expert on sharia law, has finished collecting data from the first cohort of 102 mosques and schools. Preliminary findings indicate that almost 80 percent of the group exhibit a high level of sharia-compliance and jihadi threat, including:

Ultra-orthodox worship in which women are separated from men in the prayer hall and must enter the mosque from a separate, usually back, entrance; and are required to wear hijabs.

Sermons that preach women are inferior to men and can be beaten for disobedience; that non-Muslims, particularly Jews, are infidels and inferior to Muslims; that jihad or support of jihad is not only a Muslim's duty but the noblest way, and suicide bombers and other so-called "martyrs" are worthy of the highest praise; and that an Islamic caliphate should one day encompass the U.S.

Solicitation of financial support for jihad.

Bookstores that sell books, CDs and DVDs promoting jihad and glorifying martyrdom.

Though not all mosques in America are radicalized, many have tended to serve as safe havens and meeting points for Islamic terrorist groups. Experts say there are at least 40 episodes of extremists and terrorists being connected to mosques in the past decade alone.

Some of the 9/11 hijackers, in fact, received aid and counsel from one of the largest mosques in the Washington, D.C., area. Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center is one of the mosques indentified by undercover investigators as a hive of terrorist activity and other extremism.

It was founded and is currently run by leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood. Imams there preach what is called "jihad qital," which means physical jihad, and incite violence and hatred against the U.S.

Dar al-Hijrah's ultimate goal, investigators say, is to turn the U.S. into an Islamic state governed by sharia law.

Another D.C.-area mosque, the ADAMS Center, was founded and financed by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, and has been one of the top distributors of Wahhabist anti-Semitic and anti-Christian dogma.

Even with such radical mosques operating in its backyard, the U.S. government has not undertaken its own systematic investigation of U.S. mosques.

In contrast, European Union security officials are analyzing member-state mosques, examining the training and funding sources of imams, in a large-scale project.

Some U.S. lawmakers want the U.S. to conduct its own investigation.

"We have too many mosques in this country," said Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y. "There are too many people who are sympathetic to radical Islam. We should be looking at them more carefully."
Year ago, Paul Sperry sounded the alarm about the Islamist infiltration of the D.C. Metro area. HERE is the section on the Wahhabi Corridor, just one example from Sperry's materials of several years ago.

Are mosques merely centers of worship? Not exactly, to this posting by Common Sense Against Islam at Infidel Blogger's Alliance and citing this source's article about Islamic architecture:
. . . in short and as a matter of fact, the mosque has always been a fulcrum of conquest, as the mosque serves the role of military and political conquest, religious indoctrination and education, and political and religious administration of conquered areas and populations.

It has done so by the artifice of an advanced outpost of trade and economic relations if you must deal in current parlance; it has done so by the direct adjunct of military conquest; and it does so now as the adjunct and fulcrum of demographic conquest in western europe, and as the operational base for worldwide terror and the jihad wherever the mosque is found.

No distinction can be drawn between Islam, muslims, mosques, madrasa’s and any of the arms and accoutrements of Islam conquest in the 1400 years of Islam, and any distinction that would view the presence of a mosque in an american neighborhood as an innocent event is drawn by apologists, deceivers, or the very seriously delusional.

. . . Islam has been spread by the point of the sword, e.g., by conquest from the time of the beginning of the religion, nor for the fact that it is being spread by conquest now. why should there be? it is now as it was then, and that is the simple truth of the matter

. . . I am going to wrap this post up, as it is getting late and the post is far too long. this will be the last installment or post relative to the notion that mosques are forts. if you are not convinced at this point, nothing additional will convince you on this point.

. . . we need to start gathering intelligence on american mosques, to gain some appreciation of just how they have sought to establish these links, and with whom. and, we need to understand just how seemingly unrelated activities and organizations are linked up, and how centralized their planning is, and just how well they have their agenda’s mapped out.

. . . the examples of long range planning by the Muslim Brotherhood, their goals and agendas, and how they have implemented the same via a worldwide terrorist network, coordinated with a demographic attack on Europe, does not suggest that Islamic and arab interests in this country have been satisfied to sit around and do nothing.

. . . and it is, plain and simple, wrapped up in the communications network of the mosque. It has always been so, and there is absolutely no reason to believe that it should be otherwise in this country. the mosques are up and running and we know their agenda, because it has been the agenda of all mosques ever built: it is to expand islam.
*Note: On Friday, February 29, 2008, on The Gathering Storm Radio Show, WC and I are scheduled to interview David Yerulshalmi at the top of the second hour. Dave Gaubatz, who does field work for the Mapping Shari'a in America Project, plans to join us for the discussion.
