More on Regent's Park Mosque

Here is an article in the Telegraph that describes in some detail what the undercover reporter learned during her foray into the Regent Park Mosque that I mentioned yesterday. This mosque, considered by many to be the most important in Britain, is supposedly committed to interfaith dialogue and moderation. What she uncovered was an environment in which Muslim women were urged to separate themselves from the society around them and to hate non-Muslims, gays, etc.

The article quotes Professor Anthony Glees at the Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies at Brunel University: "To think, as I believe our government thinks, that it makes ideological sense to play patsy with the Saudi government is folly of the first order of magnitude. We will be paying for it for years to come." To which I can only add, the same warning applies to the U.S. government.
