Hate in British Mosques? Nah it’s just Islamophobia

We can only assume that Islamophobia Watch are reporting on this because they don’t believe it and think it’s just all made up by Islamophobic anti-Muslim racists.

‘Agenda of hate in British mosques’

Extremist literature calling for the execution of gays and the oppression of women is being distributed in British mosques. Researchers found radical or hate-filled books and pamphlets at a quarter of the 100 Islamic religious institutions they visited.

The material found in the mosques urges Muslims to lead separate lives from “nonbelievers” and makes repeated calls for gays to be killed. Women should be subjugated and are warned not to pluck their eyebrows or wear perfume.

In the alarming report, drawn up by the Policy Exchange thinktank, the Saudis were accused of having a “powerful and malign” influence.

Hardline material was found at the East London Mosque which has been visited by Prince Charles and is closely linked to the Muslim Council of Britain. The think-tank said separatist or hateful material was also found at the former Finsbury Park Mosque in North London – made infamous by hook-handed cleric Abu Hamza – and institutions in Wycombe, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Blackburn, Bradford, Rochdale and Oxford.

Anthony Browne, Policy Exchange’s director, said: “It is clearly intolerable that hate literature is peddled at some British mosques.”

The report, The Hijacking of British Islam: How extremist literature is subverting Britain’s mosques, was written by Denis MacEoin, an Islamic studies expert at Newcastle University. Dr MacEoin said the radical material was found by Muslim research teams working in 2006 and 2007. He added: “What is more worrying is that these are among the best-funded and most dynamic institutions in Muslim Britain – some of which are held up as mainstream bodies. Many of the institutions have been endowed with official recognition.”

Whether these Mosques are harbouring extremists and those preaching violence and hate should be investigated.

Of course the Islamophobiwatchers will tell us it couldn’t possibly be true and it’s all a conspiracy by Islam hating BNP lovers!
