Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.5

The French government shut down a mosque in northern France for inciting hatred against Christians, Jews, and gays. The mosque is accused of hosting an Imam who inflames members toward Jihad. Earlier this year, the French government announced it was cracking down on places of worship and groups suspected of inciting radical Islamic propaganda. France’s interior ministry revealed that 99 of the 100 mosques and Muslim prayer halls investigated are regulated for advocating dangerous or violent ideology and 26 have been closed.
