There are no countervailing studies that challenge
these results. In 1998, Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, a Sufi leader,
visited 114 mosques in the United States. Then he gave testimony before a
State Department Open Forum in January 1999, and asserted that 80% of
American mosques taught the “extremist ideology.”
Then there was the
Center for Religious Freedom’s 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project’s 2008 study.
Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America
were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity
ultimately to impose Islamic rule. In the summer of 2011 came another study showing that only 19% of mosques in U.S. don’t teach jihad violence and/or Islamic supremacism.
“A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was
conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma
calling for violence against non-believers. Of the 100 mosques surveyed,
51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had
texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent
texts at all.
Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely
to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their
non-Sharia-adherent counterparts. In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam
recommended studying violence-positive texts. The leadership at
Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshiper
study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent
mosques. Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to
promote violent jihad.
The leadership of mosques that featured
violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who
were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques
that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.”
That means that around 1,700 mosques in the U.S. are preaching hatred of
infidels and justifying violence against them.“Saudi government funded extremism in U.S. mosques and charities: report,” by Rowan Scarborough, Washington Times, July 19, 2016:
