Update on the Rome Imam:

ROME, JUNE 16, 2003 (Zenit.org).- The Islamic Cultural Center of Rome ousted the imam from the city's Great Mosque after he urged the faithful in a sermon to "destroy the enemies of Islam."

On June 6, Abdel-Samie Mahmoud Ibrahim Moussa urged the faithful to mobilize to "ensure the victory of the nation of Islam everywhere in the world," the Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported the following day.

Giuseppe Pisanu, the Italian Minister of the Interior, reacted by saying the country's 215 mosques "must be totally freed from preachers of violence, of those who recruit for the 'holy war,' and of agents of foreign interests in Italy."
