U.S. Mosques: 84.5% of Imams Recommend Studying Violent Texts, 58% Guest Imams Promoted Violent Jihad, 51% Texts Advocate Severe Violence
A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers.
Of the 100 mosques surveyed,
51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence
30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence
19% had no violent texts at all.
Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts.
In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts.
The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshipper study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent mosques.
Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to promote violent jihad.
The leadership of mosques that featured violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.
Via Robert Spencer, who adds:
In 1998, Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, a Sufi leader, visited 114 mosques in the United States. Then he gave testimony before a State Department Open Forum in January 1999, and asserted that 80% of American mosques taught the “extremist ideology.”
Then there was the Center for Religious Freedom’s 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project’s 2008 study. Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule. [...]
