These mosques are preaching and teaching authentic Islam and jihad, the glory of slaughter. When is the West going to deal with that? How many must die?

Turkey: 90,000 mosques pray Qur’anic “conquest” prayers calling on Muslims to be “ruthless against unbelievers”
Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch, January 21, 2018:
Surah al-Fath is the 48th chapter of the Qur’an. It promises Muslims who wage jihad much material reward: “Allah has promised you much booty that you will take and has hastened for you this and withheld the hands of people from you – that it may be a sign for the believers and He may guide you to a straight path” (48:20).

“Sessions will be held after the isha prayer tonight [Jan. 20] and the morning prayer [on Jan. 21] due to Operation Olive Branch,” said Religious Affairs Directorate (Diyanet) head Ali Erbas in a message sent on Jan. 20 to all offices of muftis and religious officials across the country.
“The Surah Conquest [Surah al-Fath] will be cited during the special sessions to pray for the victory of our heroic security forces, who have launched an operation against terrorist groups that threaten our nation and our peace,” Erbaş added….
