EU proposes monitoring radical mosques

Yahoo! News reported Security officials from Europe's largest countries backed a plan Saturday to profile mosques on the continent and identify radical Islamic clerics who raise the threat of homegrown terrorism.
Will wonders never cease. They woke up.
The project, to be finished by the fall, will focus on the roles of imams, their training, their ability to speak in the local language and their sources of funding, EU Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner Franco Frattini told a news conference after a meeting on terrorism.... Adel Smith, a well-known Muslim activist in Italy, said mosques in Italy are already extensively monitored and called the EU plan discriminatory. "I think this is nonsense, I think mosques have been well monitored for some years,"
I hope so.
he said in a telephone interview. "It is a form of religious discrimination."
That is easy to remedy. Also monitor churches and synagogues, and go after go after leaders that preach violence in any of the three.
