Belgium’s largest mosque. Not some mosque attended only by a small number of people who believe in a “hijacked” version of Islam. That speaks volumes. The reality that Belgian authorities, and authorities all over the Western world, do not want to acknowledge is that jihad, and Jew-hatred, creed apartheid, gender apartheid, misogyny, and al the rest are not “extremist” Islam. They’re ordinary, mainstream Islam.
The Belgian authorities can start monitoring this mosque, as they should do, but eventually they’re going to find out that more than just this mosque is “extremist.” Saudi funding or no Saudi funding, all mosques preach the same Qur’an. They all teach the same Islam.
“The Mosque is Belgium’s biggest. Officials say it’s a hotbed for extremism,” City Today, November 11, 2017:
Prime News, International (Brussels), November 11:- The Grand Mosque of Brussels is Belgium’s biggest and oldest site of Muslim worship. Officials in Belgium say it is also a hotbed for Saudi-backed Islamist extremism.
Now the Parliament wants the country’s leaders to take over the sprawling complex that is just steps from the gleaming core of the European Union. It is the latest attempt to tighten security after radicalized Belgians emerged at the heart of terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels in the last three years….
The mosque’s leaders “are trying to live in their splendid isolation with a radical point of view, and their aim is not to integrate into our society. And that is a big problem,” said Servais Verherstraeten, one of the leaders of a Belgian parliamentary commission that recommended last month that the government break the Saudi government’s 99-year rent-free lease on the mosque. The lease was handed to Saudi King Faisal in 1969 as a goodwill gesture by Belgian King Baudouin.
“We want in Belgium an Islam practiced by people who respect our constitution, who want to integrate into our country,” Verherstraeten said. “There is the perception that there is something to hide in the most important mosque in the country.”
