The Agenda of the European Mosques:
“Islamization & Cultural Jihad”

Mireille Valette is a Swiss journalist and human rights activist. Her blog, “Boulevarde de l’islamisme” is hosted on the Swiss daily, “Tribune de Genève.” The editor of the weekly online “Antipresse,” Slobodan Despot, published a report about the untiring activities of Ms Vallette as she enlightens the Swiss public about the real agenda of Muslims both in her country, and throughout Europe. The following are excerpts translated from the French text.
Back in 2009, Mireille Vallette published, “Islamophobie ou légitime défiance ?” (Éditions Favre), (Islamophobia or A Legitimate Distrust?) She documented the fact that fundamentalist Muslim Imams, dominated the public space in Switzerland.
Then, in 2012, Ms Valette published, « Boulevard de l’islamisme : L’essor du radicalisme en Europe illustré par l’exemple « (Xenia, 2012) (Boulevard of Islamism: the Rise of Radicalism in Europe). In this work, she enlarged her field of research to include Europe. She denounced the censure of any public discussion of radical Islam as orchestrated by the so-called “Anti-racist Organizations,” and the lack of media attention to those reformist Muslims who were engaged in fighting obscurantism. Most of all, she called attention to the rise in the number of Fundamentalist associations and mosques that sought to impose their values on Western societies.
Switzerland has not escaped this phenomenon, which is the theme of Mireille Vallette’s latest book, « Le radicalisme dans les mosquées suisses: Islamisation, djihad culturel et concessions sans fin » (Radicalism in Swiss Mosques: Islamization, Cultural Jihad, and Unending Concessions.) It was published by Xenia, on 29 April 2017. Ms Vallette demonstrates that over the years, various Islamic associations have managed to insert themselves into the Swiss social fabric, and enjoy a great indulgence from the Swiss authorities.
One may add that the research Mireille Vallette has done is the kind that the security agencies should have already undertaken! Her sharp eyes, permanently awake and focused on the subject, allowed her to make a state-of-the-art description of Islam in Switzerland, its movements and the people promoting it.
Switzerland has played a major role in the “implantation” of the “Muslim Brotherhood” in the West. For example, the Taqwa Bank (“Taqwa” Arabic for “piety”) was founded at Tessin, Switzerland, to finance the development of the Brotherhood’s projects. One of the major directors of the bank, is the founder of “Islamic Community of Tessin” (CIT), whose strategic objective is to infiltrate Swiss society and its institutions.
The goals have already been achieved in several Swiss cities, where Muslim organizations have proliferated, and their presence has grown during the last few years; facilitated by the complacency of the authorities unconcerned about the ever-growing privileges granted to the Muslims. In 2014, the Government in Basle subsidized a nursery called “Mini Ummah.” The Secretary of the association that manages it, Aziz Osmanoglu, who had migrated from Turkey, had once told the journalist Karen Bauer, “In Switzerland, one is fined for parking illegally, to keep people from repeating the offense. In Islam, the hand of a thief is amputated! Personally, I’m for the application of the Shariah in Switzerland!” It’s shocking that the authorities had failed to do the proper enquiry about the beliefs and tenets of this association, before allowing it to operate in the country.
The mantra repeated endlessly by those who regard Islamophobia as a symptom for the lack of openness and tolerance, is always the same: “We are afraid of what we don’t know!” It’s rather simplistic; and most of all, it’s false. In fact, it’s the very opposite when it comes to Islam. It is when we properly understand Islam, that we become apprehensive; and our fear isn’t unreasonable!
We advise all those do-gooders who, little by little, allow Islam to impose its rules in our country, and question our own traditions; to learn more about Islam, or at least, to listen to those who are knowledgeable about the subject. René Marchand, a French specialist on Islam, wrote,
“It would require nothing less than the re-writing the Qur’an, and the life of the Prophet, to produce an Islam that is simply a religion; without its politics, its jurisprudence, and its rules for the private lives of Muslims! But such an Islam doesn’t exist, has never existed, and cannot exist.” This insight should change the approach to our subject, and would discourage an excessive or limitless type of “tolerance.”
One positive note to relate! It has just been reported that the Zurich Authorities have recommended to the legislators of the Canton, not to authorize the public distribution of the Qur’an by the Salafist Association “Lis” (Lies in German). The Austrian Authorities had already forbidden the same request. (The French verb “Lis” means “Read;” it happens to be the first Arabic word in the Qur’an, Iq’raa)
Furthermore, the Zurich Authorities had refused the request of a Salafist organization “Die wahre Religion” (The True Religion) to function in the Canton. This organization is banned in Germany.
May we consider these acts as a sign that the West is waking up to the challenge of Islam? Perhaps, but it’s too soon to say so!
