The false sanctity of mosques

Thirteen al Qaeda terrorists have escaped from prison in Yemen, including the masterminds of the attack on the U.S.S. Cole (which killed 17 sailors) and the 2002 bombing of the French tanker Limburg (which killed one and has since been swept under the rug along with countless other acts of violence driven by the cult of Islam). But this wasn't so much an escape as a break-in and "liberation," coordinated, apparently, from the local mosque.
A security source in Yemen told Reuters the tunnel from which the men escaped was thought to be around 140 meters (460 feet) long, twice as long as originally reported, and led to a mosque.

The source said authorities discovered the escape on Friday, but it was believed the prisoners had fled Thursday night and were definitely aided by more than one accomplice on the outside because the tunnel was believed to have been dug from the mosque to the prison.

I've written before about the absurdity of granting mosques the respect deserved of sanctity. Our blinkered multiculturalism has for too long allowed mosques built on our soil to become wellsprings of hate and war-rooms for Islam's relentless assault on the fundamental values of Western society. It should be no surprise that a mosque in Yemen was engaged in aiding convicted terrorists, but the fact deserves more attention than it's getting. Predictably, however, the implication of the mosque is already being omitted in mainstream media reports. CNN's Headline News team just decided that Interpol's involvement in the search for the men is more significant than Islam's involvement in their escape.
