From Gather:
In a reference given by "Media Matters," a professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine, Karen Leonard, author of the book, "Muslims in the United States: The State of Research," calls the Kabbani claim "Nonsense." She adds "I know of no extremist mosque in southern California". She may not, but like all the other researchers of mosques, unless she went to over a hundred mosques, went there as a Muslim who mosque leaders were friendly with, she would not be likely to get a true picture of those mosques, and what jihadist preaching and literature would be there when the leaders felt they were talking only to Muslims.
