Qatar Financing Wahhabi Islam in France, Italy, Ireland and Spain

(Stonegate Institute) Soeren Kern - Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, who has long cultivated an image as a pro-Western reformist and modernizer, recently vowed to "spare no effort" to spread the fundamentalist teachings of Wahhabi Islam across "the whole world." The promotion of Islamic extremist ideologies - particularly Wahhabism, which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West, but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims - threatens to further radicalize Muslim immigrants in France, analysts say. France, with 5-6 million Muslims, has the largest Muslim population in the EU. A 2,200-page report, "Suburbs of the Republic," commissioned by the French think tank L'Institut Montaigne, shows how Sharia law is rapidly displacing French civil law in many parts of suburban Paris and warns that France is on the brink of a major social explosion because of the failure of Muslims to integrate into French society.
