  • Number of Salafists in Germany Increasing
    German domestic intelligence chief Hans-Georg Maassen said on Sunday that the number of people adhering to the fundamentalist Islamic ideology had “risen to an all-time high,” with the German intelligence agency BfV saying there were 10,800 Salafists in Germany today compared with 9,700 in December 2016.
    The BfV said the movement’s recruitment drives have left the streets and mosques, and that Salafists were instead being radicalized in small conspirative groups on the internet. The agency also pointed to the growing number of women’s networks. Maassen also said Islamists from the North Caucasus region represented a major threat to security in Germany, with 500 extremists from Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia now thought to be living in Germany.
