France tries to gain control over the training of imams. A most interesting experiment. Do they have the will to follow it through and make it work, by ensuring that the jihad ideology is not taught and that imposition of Sharia is not encouraged? “Muslim finance law agreed,” from French-News.com, with thanks to dwntmpo:
After months of hesitation and negotiation, the Minister of the Interior Dominique de Villepin has announced the formation of a foundation to finance the activities of the Muslim religion. The agreement was signed by the four main tendencies, those associated with Algeria, the FrÃ¨res Musulmans, the ComitÃ© de coordination des Musulmans Turcs de France. When the conseil d”Ã©tat has given its blessing the foundation will come into being. It will then be possible to finance courses for the training of Immams in France. At the moment one third of those in France do not speak French. It will also be able to help finance the building of mosques. A government commissioner will sit with the foundation to monitor the projects to be financed. The aim of the government is to integrate the Muslim religion in France and to end secret financing from dubious foreign souirces.
