1 In 10 US Mosques Preach Hate, Violence: FBI

Ten percent of the 2,000 mosques across America.

200 mosques that produce hateful Islamic supremacists and even terrorists.
That sums up the problem facing us as we ponder the meaning of Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan’s slayings of 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas. Given his association with a pro-al-Qaida imam in northern Virginia and his preoccupation with radical Islamic Web sites, it’s clear that the radical element of Islam influenced Hasan.


About a quarter of the Muslims in America ages 18 through 29 believe that suicide bombings can be justified, according to a Pew Research Center poll. Generating those attitudes are imams who preach jihad and hatred in American mosques and postings on the Internet, according to FBI counterterrorism officials interviewed for my book “The Terrorist Watch: Inside the Desperate Race to Stop the Next Attack.”


Before 9/11, he says, “There was much more of that because all of it was considered by Justice Department guidelines to be purely protected speech. We do not have incitement laws in America, but once an imam facilitates someone else taking action, he has crossed the line into material support and becomes our business.”


The FBI has outreach programs to try to develop sources in the Muslim community and solicit tips, but FBI agents have found little receptivity. They find that Muslims often are in denial about the fact that the terrorists who threaten the U.S. are Muslims.
It's obvious from the article that Muslims generally don't want to turn in any of their own, even the dangerous ones amongst themselves, to authorities. It's a problem for sure. However...

If the news media filmed imams preaching hated of America in mosques that are public, the number of imams publicly espousing jihad would dwindle to close to zero. Until that happens, Americans must learn to distinguish between the good guys and the bad guys.

But the Big News Media won't dare do that. This is why you have to go online to see those evil imams spewing vile hatred and violent incitement.

Lots of folks aren't really doing their job. They'll say the right stuff, but then go on and do nothing, or even do some things that make things worse, not better!
