France Closes Four Mosques

For Preaching Radical Ideology

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

There isn’t a lot of good news coming out of France these days, nor from Europe for that matter. Here is an exception. France has identified four mosques in which radical, hateful ideology was being preached and closed them.

The obvious reaction is whether we can do that here. It would be more problematical. In secular Europe, religion doesn’t enjoy as many privileges as here. Nor does the concept of freedom of speech. For the US to close mosques, there would have be an investigation that revealed that people and imams were plotting crimes, terror, revolution or what have you. Then you could act against the individuals involved.

What I think is needed is when police have information that radical ideology (hate crimes and terror) is being plotted or the overthrow of American democracy. Then electronic surveillance should be used. Now you are looking for conspiracies. Without accusing every mosque in America, a lot of intelligence indicates that many are preaching hateful, anti-West values. (Some estimates have been as high as 80%.) Does that cross over into plotting crimes?

French laws are different, and I applaud the action. Hopefully, it is accompanied by prosecution and deportation.
