* Nothing new really.
Mosques are not simply ‘places of worship’- they are indoctrination and propaganda -centers for hatred and conspiracy theories,Â bastions of plotting and convenient weapon storage as we have seen in Iraq (and in London and many other places.)
The minarets are great spots for snipers, Turkey’s PM Erdogan calls them ‘rocket launchers’- and foolish Western governments are still not taking any action to monitor the hate-speeches and theÂ incitement from the middle eastern mullah’s, muftis and imamsÂ who have somehow, (how exactly?) infiltrated the Dar-al- harb, and now sit deeply entrenched behind enemy lines, from which they bite their time for the jihad, which must come, inevitably, either by out- breeding (demographics) or by unrestrained immigration from Islamic countries, because all the world belongs to Allah, and no infidel government has a right to rule over the soldiers of Allah with man-made laws…
AÂ number of high-profile cases involving terrorist plots have raised suspicions that a Copenhagen mosque served as a recruitment centre for radical Islamists
Last week’s arrest of eight men suspected of planning a terrorist action have brought renewed attention to a mosque located on Heimdalsgade in Copenhagen’s northwest neighbourhood.
Initial reports found that two brothers with Pakistani background suspected in the case attended the mosque, bolstering claims the centre serves as a recruitment facility for radical Islamists.
Several of the suspects involved in the first case initiated under Denmark’s new anti-terror laws, the Glostrup case, were known to attend the mosque. The radical Muslim, Said Mansour, who was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison in April was also known to act as a mentor for many young Muslims attending the mosque.
According to Lene KÃ¼hle, a religion scholar at Aarhus University, the mosque is known for being inaccessible to the media and where women are denied entry. In contrast to other mosques, it attracts younger Muslims – especially Danish converts – and is one of the only ones who have allowed the radical organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir influence.
‘That’s why it’s not such a coincidence that it has been mentioned so many times in connection with suspicions about terror,’ she told daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
According to a source close to the suspects arrested last week, the two Pakistani brothers had contact with Abu Ahmed, a radical cleric who once taught at the mosque.
The mosque has gone to efforts to disassociate itself from the cases involving suspected terrorist plots, however. After arrests were made in the Glostrup case in November
2005, the mosque opened its doors to journalists.
A leading figure in Copenhagen’s Muslim community, Khalid Al-subeihi, also denied that that the mosque has a link to radical groups.
‘I think it was a coincidence that the mosque is connected to the terror cases,’ Al-subeihi told Berlingske Tidende newspaper. ‘There aren’t any activities for young people at the mosque. It’s more the older generation that goes there.’
