A regular reader from France, Pierre Ménard, asks us to alert our British readers about a television program being aired tomorrow night in the UK:
You might have friends who could record and videogoogle this upcoming program on British TV, Monday 15 January, 8pm GMT, on Channel 4.
It sounds like a good idea to me — is there anyone across the pond who could tape the report and put it up on YouTube or Google Video? If so, please send us the link when it’s up.
Excerpts from Channel 4’s information on the program:

A Dispatches reporter attends mosques run by organisations whose public faces are presented as moderate and finds preachers condemning integration into British society, condemning democracy and praising the Taliban for killing British soldiers.
Undercover Mosque features interviews with moderate British Muslim figures who are speaking out against the influence of Saudi Arabia’s extreme brand of Islam, which is seeking to overturn Islamic traditions of diversity and peaceful co-existence: “We are losing our children to extremists,” says Haras Rafiq of the Sufi Muslim Council. Dr Al Alawi of the Islamic Heritage Foundation also warns: “If this continues, you will have extremist mosques in every corner of the UK. You will not have moderate Muslims walking on our streets anymore.”
We need to be doing the same kind of thing here in the U.S.A., but there isn’t a TV station in the country with the collective cojones to go up against the PC groupthink that controls what we’re allowed to see on the screen.
I’ll be interested to hear reports about this on Tuesday morning.
