  • France Targets Foreign Funding for Mosques – James McAuley
    After the Nice attack, Prime Minister Manuel Valls called for an outright ban on the foreign funding of mosques in France “for a period to be determined.” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced that since December 2015, 20 Salafist mosques were shut down altogether. There are about 2,500 Muslim “houses of prayer” in France. According to France 24, some 120 are associated with radical Salafism. There are between four and five million Muslims in France.
