Bernard Cazeneuve, Minister of Interior told reporters:
“We have mobilized all our legal means and all possible investigations in order to expel the radical imams and close the mosques that spread hate. We will also send particular letters and will undertake investigations into specific individuals.”
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve called for the “dissolution” of radical mosques following last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Belgium’s Prime Minister, Charles Michel threatened similar action in his country where the attacks were staged.
Neither President Obama nor other officials in his administration, however, have spoken of shutting down radical mosques in the U.S. But U.S. reticence about taking actions now being implemented by France and Belgium isn’t for a lack of mosques in this country in which hatred for American values and support for jihad terrorism are regularly heard.
There are more than 80 radical mosques are in the U.S., according to the Clarion Project, a non-profit group that describes itself as “dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamist extremism.”
Of course, Democrats would riot if this was ever practiced in the US.
