How much does god need?
Monitor mosques, but probe the role of States in terror as well

Illuminated wisdom??Arecent Italian government decision to monitor the funding of mosques might seem like the continuation of American anti-Muslim policy. The contention, however, provided by Italy, doesn't seem entirely unfounded. Her claims that the purpose is not persecution of Islam, but ensuring that the money is not streamed into extremist activities, does seem to hold logic. The trial of the March 2004 Madrid train bombings (that left 191 dead and 1,824 injured) has revealed that most of the money was provided by groups having close connections with mosques. Incidentally, Saudi Arabia figures first among the list of dubious suppliers of mosques and terror funds all over the world. Similarly, the indoctrination of jihadis in several madrassas is almost an open secret.

Yet, it is important to ensure that the thin line between sanity and chauvinism is not crossed in the quest to leash fanaticism. The fight essentially should not be against Islam, but against terrorism of every nature including the State-sponsored ones.
