At that meeting, the Moroccan government promised “financing for all religious associations and mosques that are prepared to submit to the control of the [Moroccan] regime and to adhere to its instructions.” The keynote speaker at the meeting was Mohamed Yassine Mansouri, head of the Moroccan Secret Service (DGED).

The CNI report also states: “The financing is having negative consequences for [multicultural] coexistence in Spain, such as the emergence of parallel societies and ghettos, Islamic courts and police that operate outside of Spanish jurisprudence, removing girls from schools, forced marriages, etc.”

It continues: “There is insufficient control of financial flows involving grants and aid from other countries that are being funneled to the Islamic community in Spain. For the most part donors are using alternative channels to ensure that their donations escape the control of the regular Spanish financial system. Donors should be made fully aware of the risks associated with such financing.”

Morocco also co-sponsored a weeklong seminar in Barcelona entitled “Muslims and European Values,” during which it was proposed that the construction of big mosques would be “a useful formula” to fight Islamic fundamentalism in Spain.

A keynote speaker at the event, a Barcelona-based Moroccan imam named Noureddine Ziani, said it is absolutely necessary to accept Islamic values as European values and that from now on, Europeans should replace the term “Judeo-Christian” with term “Islamo-Christian” when describing Western Civilization.

Back in Italy, there are now an estimated 500 mosques in the country, in addition to thousands of informal Islamic prayer centers and Koranic schools, most of which are housed in basements, garages and warehouses.

Many of the mosque projects in Italy are being promoted by leftwing politicians, who are waging an ideological war with the Roman Catholic Church. As in many other European countries, multiculturalists in Italy hope that by promoting Islam, they will eventually succeed in destroying the country’s Judeo-Christian heritage.

Now, with the creation of the CII, Italy may be one step closer to hosting yet another mosque, this time in the northern Italian city of Bologna.

Not coincidentally, Fihri Wahid, the new president of the CII, comes from the Moroccan community in Bologna, where the mayor postponed the construction of a mega-mosque (described as a “massive 6,000 square meter mosque inside a 52,000 square meter Islamic citadel”) after it emerged that it was being financed by the UCOII.

Evidently, the Moroccans are hoping they can get permission to build the mega-mosque if it is sponsored by the new, more “moderate” CII.
