3 Imams to be expelled (2)

Minister VerdonkYesterday it was reported that three Imams of the Al Fourkaan mosque are going to be expelled (See: 3 Imams to be expelled – part 1). Minster Verdonk told on state TV news: “I suspect these imams of radicalizing other Moslems and of preaching the Jihad”. And continues with: “They are calling for a holy war, a war makes victims and that can’t be tolerated in The Netherlands”. This is also a triumph for representative Wilders, he is asking already for years for these kinds of measures. So far there seems little opposition in parliament to the measures Verdonk has taken.

The names of the Imams are: Sheich’ Abu Tariq and Mahmoud al-Chebli who both had the daily leadership of the mosque. The name of the third Imam is not reported but he was the substitute imam. The Imams have the Bosnian, Kenyan and Egyptian nationality.

Minister Verdonk has revoked by two of the imams their residence permit and did not extend the residence permit of the third one (same result). A residence permit for foreign imams has to be extended each year. They have now three weeks to leave the country or to appeal their case; if they do that they can stay until the trial. The management of the mosque has already said they are going to appeal their case and start court cases.


The inteligence service (AIVD)
The Al Fourkaan mosque has a history of extremism and has often reached the Dutch news in extremist cases. Last year August the intelligence service wrote a report that included six radical mosques, including the Al Fourkaan. The spokes person of the Intelligence service AIVD now says that all Mosques in the report are now under surveillance. All involved mosques preach the Salafist strain of Islam and received funding from Saudi Arabia:
According to the intelligence service the three imams of the Al Fourkaan mosque advocate a type of Islam that is very anti Western. They “contribute to the radicalization of Muslims in the Netherlands”. They have also tolerated the recruitment for the Jihad. By preaching against the West, they have “deliberately” contributed to the radicalization of Muslims and are “jointly” responsible for creating a “breeding ground for Jihad”.


Muslims are angry
But today the Muslims are angry. The spokes person of the Mosque: “If an imam preaches incitement, I am against that. Maybe that has happened sometimes in this mosque, but I don’t know about it because I was not present. But who is minister Verdonk that she can say something about it?”

“Verdonk” explains a young Moroccan “is not fair, she is not a democrat. She suddenly requests from us foreigners that we have a monthly income of 1400 Euro, in case we want to marry a girl from our homeland. And such a girl must be older than 21 years old. Verdonk discriminates and offends us. She can piss off.”

Fini an African says he becomes “aggressive” of this “evil plan” of the minister. “I come often in this mosque and the imams absolutely do not go to far. Verdonk acts a-social and stupid because she divides the people”. “Exactly” says a bystander.

“The allegation are not correct, we are not a terrorist network, but a religious institute”, says spokes person A. Nejjar. “If you make these allegations, you first have to do a thoroughly investigation and that did not happen. Also did minister Verdonk use out dated information, because one of the imams is only a substitute imam”. And he continues: “there is now a tense atmosphere in the mosque. We were working on improving our image by organizing open houses and invite school youth. That is now all thwarted by Verdonk”

Abdellah Wensing [Dutch name] who is already a Muslim convert for 11 years says he has never noticed imams or visitors preach violence. He says: “Islam is not a violent religion”. He says the imams tried to temper the emotions in the mosque when Hirsi Ali began her “hate campaign”. He is not very impressed: “There will be three new imams, the faith will not change. You can expel the Islam from The Netherlands”.

An ex-imam of the mosque says the management of the mosque is totally surprised by the move of minister. He says around 800 people visit the sermons of the imams. According to him the mosque has several times invited Minster Verdonk [immigration] and minister Remkes [domestic affairs], but they both never responded on the invitation.


The Burgomaster
Burgomaster SakkersThe management of the Mosque says it has been reaching out to the non-Islamic community. Burgomaster A. Sakkers says he knows about it: “In December the management has promised to me that there would come more transparency”. He says he is “surprised” by the move of minister Verdonk. “I had the impression that things had improved in the mosque, I notices during my visits [to the mosque] that there was no danger”. Last week there was a conference about Islamic faith [in the mosque]. The police reported [to me] positively about the event, according to the burgomaster. But he adds: “In case the intelligence reports of the AIVD are correct, then the minister takes the correct action, also for all the Muslims in the city of Eindhoven”. The burgomaster has intensified the police protection of the mosque.


Dutch Muslim council
Chairman Maddoe of the Dutch Muslim CouncilChairman D. Maddoe of the Dutch Muslim council says: “Imams who disrupt the democracy or civil order, may indeed be tackled. But I like to plea for a thorough investigation that hears both sides”. And how has the jurisdiction been regulated? “There is now a discussion about who we call an extremist or radical. The government is not allowed to say when ever they like: throw them out”.

The Netherlands has 453 mosques according to the Social and Cultural-planning agency of the government. Nearly all have multiple foreign Imams. We still have a long way to go…

Generic Viagra is not inferior to its analogue at all. Influence, action, duration, quality, and chemical compound of Generic Viagra are absolutely the same, comparing to branded pills
