A television documentary recorded in secret inside numerous mosques in Great Britain reportedly uncovered disturbing evidence that various British imans preach hatred of Jews and Christians, along with the submission of women and Islamic supremacy.
According to the Spanish daily “La Razon,” “Dispatches,” a Channel 4 documentary which aired on January 15, produced by reporter Robert Spencer, has caused great controversy and has Muslims on the defensive.
In an excerpt on the subject of women, the documentary shows Muslim leaders saying, “Allah has created the woman – even if she gets a Ph.D. – deficient. Her intellect is incomplete, deficient. She may be suffering from hormones that will make her emotional. It takes two witnesses of a woman to equal the one witness of the man.”
The videos, which were mostly recorded at a mosque in the Green Lane in Birmingham, show a local iman exhorting Muslims on the treatment of their daughters: “By the age of ten, it becomes an obligation on us to force her to wear hijab, and if she doesn’t wear hijab, we hit her.”
“Men are in charge of women,” it continued. “Wherever he goes she should follow him, and she shouldn’t be allowed leave the house without his permission.”
The documentary also shows preaching about Western democracy: “You have to live like a state within a state until you take over;” “We want the laws of Islam to be practiced; we want to do away with the man-made laws.” “Allah has decreed this thing, that I am going to be dominant. The dominance of course is a political dominance.”
The documentary featured other incendiary comments from imans as well: “Muslims shouldn’t be satisfied with living in other than the total Islamic state.” “I encourage all of you to be from amongst them, to begin to cultivate ourselves for the time that is fast approaching where the tables are going to turn and the Muslims are going to be in the position of being uppermost in strength, and when that happens, people won’t get killed – unjustly.”
A prominent mosque in Green Lane where the documentary was recorded has issued a press release in an effort to downplay the controversy. “It is extremely disappointing but not at all surprising that ‘Dispatches’ has chosen to portray Muslims in the worst possible light,” the press release stated. “‘Dispatches’ has opted for sensationalism over substance with total disregard for peaceful community relations.”
