RAID: Germany Stamps-Out 'Peaceful' Muslim Hotbed for Terror, Puts Feckless Obama to Shame
German police raided, closed and banned a Muslim association and a mosque in the southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart for supporting the Islamic State group.
The Islamic Educational and Cultural Center Mesdschid Sahabe was visited by Salafist preachers and Islamist fundamentalists from the West Balkans, according to Baden-Württemberg’s Interior Minister Reinhold Gall.
“We do not tolerate associations that advocate the use of violence to promote religious concerns and collect donations for terrorist goups,” Gall said.
The cultural center allegedly supported an Islamist group that “carried out religiously motivated attacks against persons and property,” he said.
“Through the association, donations have been collected for terrorist groups and fighters recruited for the Syrian conflict. In addition, the association and its members glorify jihad and religiously motivated terrorism,” the minister added.
