France: Mosque closed after it was discovered to be preaching armed jihad, Islamic martyrdom, and terrorism

OCT 14, 2021 3:00 PM



Imagine the embarrassment of French authorities when they discover this mosque was not an outlier.

“Radical Islam: Allonnes mosque closes, government ‘uncompromising in the face of radicalization,'” translated from “Islam radical : la mosquée d’Allonnes ferme, le gouvernement «intransigeant face à la radicalisation»,” Le Parisien, October 13, 2021 (thanks to Medforth):

The prefecture of Sarthe announced on Wednesday that it had initiated a procedure for closing the mosque in Allonnes, a small town of about 11,000 inhabitants southwest of Le Mans, which welcomes around 300 faithful, and where sermons legitimize “the appeal to armed jihad.”

“According to the evidence collected, sermons and the activity of this place of worship, which is frequented by individuals belonging to or close to the radical Islamist movement, legitimize the use of armed jihad, death as a martyr, the commission of acts of terrorism, and the practice of violence, hatred and discrimination, as well as the establishment of Sharia law,” the Sarthe prefecture indicated in a press release.

The “inflexible” government

“We are inflexible in the face of Islamism, we are uncompromising in the face of hatred and radicalization,” government spokesman Gabriel Attal said during his weekly press briefing. “When the Republic is attacked, it must respond, it must respond strongly, and therefore we have initiated a procedure to request the closure of this mosque,” he continued, recalling that it had been initiated “on the basis of the law on internal security and the fight against terrorism which was recently passed.”

“In total, more than 650 places frequented by fundamentalists have been closed. During this mandate we have dissolved a dozen structures of worship, mosques, three times more than under the two previous terms combined,” he further underlined.

110 children in a Koranic school

The Allonnes Mosque also houses a Koranic school “welcoming around 110 children, in front of whom armed jihad has been recognized and which therefore constitutes a place of indoctrination,” says the Sarthe prefecture. Also, “under the terms of the law, all of these facts constitute statements made, ideas and theories disseminated, or activities inciting violence, hatred or discrimination, causing the commission of acts of terrorism or condoning such acts.”

“In view of these elements, at the request of the Minister of the Interior, the Prefect of Sarthe initiated a procedure to close this place of worship,” the prefecture’s statement concluded. The mosque is managed by two associations, the Allonnaise Association pour le Juste Milieu (AAJM) and the Al Qalam association.
