France has deported 40 imams for hate speech

In the U.S., even raising the possibility that mosques might be teaching hatred and sedition is enough to get you charges of “bigotry” and “Islamophobia.” No U.S. official and no one in the mainstream media will even consider the possibility. In fact, so entrenched is the assumption that the mosques in the U.S. are bastions of patriotism and pluralism that if the American media notices this story at all, it will only be to castigate the French for their “Islamophobia.”

“France says 40 imams deported for hate speech,” The Local, June 29, 2015 (thanks to Lookmann):

France has deported 40 foreign imams for “preaching hatred” in the past three years, a quarter of them since the January terror attacks in Paris, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Monday.

The minister vowed to clamp down on mosques and preachers inciting hatred after a suspected Islamist beheaded his boss during an attack on a gas factory last week.

The attack, which had the hallmarks of a jihadist act but is also believed to have personal motivations, was the second in six months in France which is battling to curb radicalisation that has seen hundreds of citizens leave to wage jihad in Iraq and Syria.
