image for Military Academy Next To Extremist Mosque Causes A Stir
"I can see an army from here"

A large military academy has been built close to a Mosque run by extremists, causing worshippers to complain.

The Sandshoe Academy will be used to train officer cadets. However, nearby is the Mohammad Hurst Mosque.

Imam Mohammad Al Kaeeda said "This is really difficult for us. How are we supposed to preach hatred of the west and urge suicide bombers to take action if we've got the British army next door. This really infringes on our civil liberties. I've urged the government to rethink."

The issue is being dealt with at a very senior level. Prince Phillip is said to be involved in very delicate negotiations with the Council of Extremists. One false word could escalate the whole problem. One option is to allow regular open days at the academy where the members of the mosque can learn all about military matters.

For now there is a strained relationship between the neighbours and it remains to be seen what will happen if a ball should go over the fence.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
