UK Report: Who’s not doing enough to fight terrorism?

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah is visiting the UK. Yesterday we noted that King Abdullah chided the British for not doing enough to fight terrorism. We also noted several reasons why no Saudi ought to criticize anyone else for a substellar anti-terror effort. Here’s one more reason the King should’ve kept his opinions to himself.

Extremist literature that encourages hatred of gays, Christians and Jews can be easily found at many of Britain’s mosques, according to a new survey.

Researchers for the centre-Right think tank Policy Exchange claims it found the literature in a quarter of the 100 mosques and Islamic institutions they visited.

Many of the publications allegedly called on British Muslims to segregate themselves from non-Muslims and for unbelievers to be treated as second-class citizens wherever possible.

The literature also allegedly contained repeated calls for gays to be thrown from mountains and tall buildings and for women to be subjugated.

Policy Exchange said that among the documents were the anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, and other publications peddling bizarre conspiracy theories.

That’s not much of a surprise; they don’t call London “Londonistan” for nothing. But the fact is, this isn’t nearly enough of a surprise either.


These aren’t fringe or fly-by-night mosques; the British Royal Family has visited several of them. The literature involved is unfortunately all too familiar to anyone who has spent any time looking into jihadist propaganda.


The report singles out the Muslim Council of Britain for criticism, as the MCB is linked to several of the mosques that distribute this literature. Predictably, the MCB’s response is to try to turn the criticism back on its critics.

Iqbal Sacranie, a former secretary general of the Muslim Council of Great Britain, criticised the report. He said: “The majority of Muslims will totally dismiss this because it is written by the Policy Exchange, who have an agenda to denigrate the mainstream of Islam in this country.

“If there is any material which falls foul of the law, then the law should take its course. We cannot accept messages of hate – there is zero tolerance on that. But it is irresponsible to target religious texts and take them out of context. These texts can be found not just in mosques but in ordinary bookshops – the report overlooks that.”

These mosques are giving away for free what people can buy in a book store — that’s not much of a defense. In fact, it’s more of an admission that there’s a widespread problem.

The Corner and Jihad Watch are also covering this story.

Anybody who cares what the Saudis think doesn’t know what a Saudi is.

I blame this hatred and bigotry on British foreign policy.

“I am sure the majority of moderate Muslims will be as horrified as everyone else that pamphlets advocating jihad by force, hatred for insufficiently observant Muslims, Christians and Jews, and segregationhave found their way into the UK’s mosques.”

uh huh

It’s not just Britain. Freedom House found Wahhabi hate literature in EVERY mosque it investigated in the US. Their findings can be found in their report, “Saudi Publications on Hate Ideology Invade American Mosques.”

Saudi Arabia has spent $80+ billion since the 1980s to propagate their Wahhabi death cult around the world. Where ever the Wahhabi missionaries go, including US mosques and prisons, Islamist terrorists follow. The current campaign of Islamic terror is an expression of Saudi Arabia’s covert policy of religious imperialism in which it insanely seeks to conquer the world and establish a global Sharia state, the Caliphate.

This will not end until Saudi Arabia is destroyed.
