Mosques can be monitored in Saudi Arabia, but there cannot be any monitoring of mosques in the U.S. Oh, no. That would be "Islamophobic." Maybe the Obama Administration could bring in some Saudi mosque inspectors to assure them that everything is on the up-and-up in mosques stateside.
"Misuse of mosque for manufacturing explosives condemned," from Arab News, August 28 (thanks to Twostellas):
JEDDAH: A number of religious scholars and academics have stressed the need for the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowment, Call and Guidance to beef up monitoring of places of worship. It followed the recent report of a Riyadh mosque serving as a facade for manufacturing explosives.
This is nothing that will especially catch anyone's notice. As we have documented over the years here at Jihad Watch, mosques all over the world have been used as bases for attacks against Infidels, to stockpile weapons, etc. In this case there will be nothing like the world outcry that would ensue if a church were found manufacturing explosives. That would be a true man-bites-dog story.
The Interior Ministry said in a statement on Sunday that it discovered explosive substances and devices at a lean-to of a quiet mosque in Riyadh. Mosques normally use attached rooms to accommodate workers or for library service.
The scholars also demanded deterrent punishments to those who exploit the spiritual atmosphere in mosques to promote chaos in the country, Al-Madinah daily reported on Monday.
Those who seek to destabilize the country and fight against security forces come under the category of those who rebel against Allah and His Messenger and a countrys legitimate government and hence should be punished severely, said Sheikh Abdullah Al-Manie, who is a member of the Council of Senior Religious Scholars and adviser at the Royal Court.
"Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment..." -- Qur'an 5:33
The scholar also congratulated the Interior Ministry for its successful preemptive strike against the Riyadh cell and protecting the people from such heinous deeds.
The Islamic Affairs Ministry should ensure that imams and muezzins inspect the mosque premises regularly and thoroughly, so that the facilities are not misused for subversive activities. The sacred houses of worship should not be converted into dens of destructive acts, he said.
Member of the Fiqh Academy Muhammad Al-Nojaimi stressed the duty of the worshipers and residents in nearby buildings apart from imams and muezzins to see that mosques are not exploited for subversive activities. Officials concerned should also investigate why some expatriates are unofficially undertaking duties at mosques. They should also launch campaigns and raids at such mosques, he said....
Meanwhile, a former Saudi fighter in Afghanistan, Sheikh Siraj Al-Zahrani, warned against the dangers of Saudi youths being carried away by the temptation to be martyrs in Syria. Siraj said he joined the Afghan Taleban fighters on the assumption that they were fighting on the straight religious path, but experience made him disillusioned and prompted him to return home. No youth should go to Syria or other war fronts without the permission from their guardians. A family should be cautious about its sons being lured to war zones for jihad, the sheikh said.
I always thought ‘mosque’ was Arabic for ‘bomb manufacturing facility’? All quite compatible with the Religion of being blown into Pieces.
For about the umpteenth time, we should have deported all non-citizen Muslims starting on 9/12/01, and started surveillance of all citizen Muslims. Mosques in non-Muslim countries have traditionally been Jihadi training facilities and armories, and should be treated as enemy territory.
It’s not too late to get started!
As it is a provable hate cult, every Mosque (aka weapons factory) should be monitored 24/7 just like I want the KKK or La Raza or NBP or Nation of Is-Slime hate halls monitored.
Never mind the chemicals.
Just look at what the imams are saying at Friday prayers and the attentive faces of the young men in the mosque as they hear the imam shout, “Kill the infidels and the Jews!”
That is what you call bomb manufacturing.

Actually, that is not a bad idea, though it needs a little work. If one of the Saudi security service inspectors was invited to the US, just for that purpose, he could tell very quickly what, if anything, that mosque was up to. He knows where to look and what to look for.
But here’s a twist I would add. Back in Saudi Arabia, if they catch somebody trying to stir the pot from the pulpit, they will imprison him and force him to undergo “reeducation”.
So this Saudi SS guy would make any radicals he found in the US a deal. “Either come with me to Saudi Arabia, or I turn you over to the Americans, and they’ll either imprison you or deport you, or both.”
The Saudis prefer reeducation, so they would be happy with the deal. And either way, the US would be rid of the troublemakers. What’s not to like?
I’d rather invite the devil to dinner where we would devour my soul for dessert than trust any saudi inspecting one of their barracks in dar al harb.
