“The Mosques are our Stronghold”

We easily recognize the quote by  Recepp Tayyip Erdogan, given as part of a speech in 1998.

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers….”

And then we have this:
“The mosques are our stronghold.”
Did these thoughts originate with these individuals?
Take the time to read the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
If too busy, just read this short link:
The Basij – mobilize at the mosques.
What might be viewed as modern era militancy comes from a different era, and the body of work known as Seerah and the Sunnah.
The paradigm is different. It has not shifted from its moorings.
