Political correctness finds it offensive simply to question the commitment of Muslims in the West to secular principles. But here is evidence straight from a jihadist of the prevalence of radical ideas in one Paris mosque. From the Herald Sun:
A number of Willie Brigitte’s associates were killed fighting Coalition forces in Afghanistan or arrested by the US during the war, the suspected terrorist has claimed.
Brigitte, who was deported from Australia in October, told French investigators jihad, or holy way, played a central role in the mosque he and fellow worshippers attended on the outskirts of Paris.
Investigative judge Jean Louis Bruguiere questioned Brigitte about extremist Islamic views preached at the Omar and Abu Bakar mosques in suburban Couronne.
“Yes, that is true, in the teachings given there by Mohamed El Magrebi, the jihad played a major part,” Brigitte responded, according to a transcript of his interview aired on ABC’s Four Corners last night.
Brigitte said many of his fellow worshippers were subsequently killed in the war on terror.
“Moreover, all those who took part in this teaching have either died in Afghanistan or have been arrested by the Americans because they have been led to that country,” Brigitte claimed.
Good. But what is being done to stop these teachings in the mosques?
