Paris Mosque Pulls Out of State-Sponsored Muslim Foundation


France tried to get agreement worked out with it's Muslim community by starting a Foundation to support Muslims, and attempt to make sure that the teachings in Mosque would not be encouraging of Jihad.

This is what you get.

From VOA News:
PARIS — The influential Paris Grand Mosque has announced it is pulling out of a new, state-sponsored Muslim foundation, criticizing “interference” in how Islam is exercised at a time of simmering tensions and divisions surrounding France's second-largest faith. 
The mosque, which represents about one-tenth of France's 2,500 mosques and Muslim associations, called on other Muslim groups to do the same and “reject all attempts of stewardship,” by French authorities, even as critics suggested its move was motivated by other factors. 
Officially launched in December, the Foundation for Islam of France aims to focus on cultural and educational issues, with a separate body overseeing areas like training imams and financing mosques. 
But the selection of 77-year-old Jean-Pierre Chevenement, a Catholic-raised former interior minister, to head the foundation has stirred controversy. While Chevenement has opposed calls to ban the Muslim burkini on beaches and the veil in universities, he has also drawn furor by calling on Muslims to be more discreet. 
“We're happy to have the state create a foundation, but the president must be Muslim and it must be done in collaboration with Muslims,” said Slimane Nadour, who oversees communications at the Paris mosque. “We don't want it imposed.”
In other words, "Fuck off, Infidels."

OT:
Trump Orders Removal Of Islamic Symbols, Practices In The White House

On Trump’s orders, one of Obama’s most secretive rituals is being reversed and all signs of it removed from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

For the past 8 years, to appease any Muslims working at or visiting the White House, silence has been ordered during the 5 times of Islamic prayer each day. In addition, prayer rugs and crescent moon symbols are available in several areas of the executive mansion to make Muslims more comfortable.

President-elect Trump, who acknowledges that this country was founded by Christians and was built on Christian morals, is having all pagan symbols removed from the property unless they offer some historical significance.

Anonymous,
Thank you for the link.

However, I have checked out that story, and I find no evidence it is true.

Snopes lists it as fake. Snopes is not necessarily reliable, but as I said, i can find no evidence it is true.
