Oh, the Islamophobia!
Actually, this is a common-sense measure. We have seen imams preaching hatred and violence in mosques all over the West. Every country in the West should be doing the same thing. Throw the supremacist colonizers out.
The willful blindness of American officials to this problem is suicidal. If the US did this with all the imams who are preaching jihad in America, many, many imams would be deported. But no one dares to do what must be done: monitor the mosques, no matter how many U.S. Muslims go jihad.
The problem here is that what this imam was preaching was not an “extremist” hijacking of Islam, it was the real thing. Pure, authentic Islam. There are Muslim preachers all over Switzerland and Europe in general who agree with him. What are Swiss authorities going to do when they discover that?
A district court in canton Zurich has given a Muslim preacher, accused of promoting violence, an 18-month suspended prison sentence. It also ordered the 25-year-old Ethiopian to be deported and banned from re-entering Switzerland for 15 years.
The preacher was on trial for calling for the burning of Muslims who are not devout enough in their worship.
Police arrested the cleric in October of last year, after receiving reports of the controversial sermon delivered at the An’Nur mosque in Winterthur, in north-eastern Switzerland. The man is also charged with distributing pictures of executions online and of violating labour regulations by working without a permit.
“His religious views represent a danger to the public,” the prosecution told the court. But the defendent’s lawyer painted a different picture, saying: “He was merely an unsuspecting asylum seeker who had only been in Switzerland for three months. He is no fanatical Muslim.”
The An’Nur mosque has long been suspected of radicalizing youth, with media reports saying some worshippers had travelled to Syria to fight in jihad movements. A police raid on the mosque in November 2016 also uncovered four suspected illegal immigrants.
Three months later, ten people were arrested following allegations that they had attacked and imprisoned two other people in the mosque who they believed had spoken to journalists….
The mosque’s governors have repeatedly rejected allegations of radicalization and links to terrorist groups. An Islamic culture organisation criticised the media last year of “inciting hatred against the mosque”….
