German Intelligence: Islamism Is Growing, Poses One Of The Greatest Threats To Germany’s National Security

Don’t be surprised. What else can we expect when a nation goes out of its way — and out of its mind — to officially embrace the very ideology that inspired Hitler and the “final solution”? …

Proverbs 14:8, “The prudent understand where they are going, but fools deceive themselves.”

By Soeren Kern, Gatestone Institute – “Salafism is the fastest growing Islamist movement in Germany, and Salafist jihadists pose one of the greatest threats to national security, according to a new German intelligence report.

The annual report — known in German as the Verfasungsschutzbericht Niedersachsen 2013 — focuses on threats to the democratic order in the northwestern German state of Lower Saxony, home to a sizeable Muslim community.

The 196-page document was prepared by the Lower Saxony branch of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency, the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV), and was made public by Boris Pistorius, the Interior Minister of Lower Saxony, at a special press conference held in the city of Hannover on May 25.

Despite its regional focus, the report provides a wealth of information about the rise of radical Islam in Germany as a whole.

Most notably, the document reveals that membership in Islamic extremist groups in Germany rose to 43,185 in 2013, up from 42,550 in 2012. It also states that the number of Salafists in Germany rose to 5,500 in 2013, up from 4,500 in 2012, and 3,800 in 2011.

Although Salafists make up only a fraction of the estimated 4.3 million Muslims in Germany, authorities are increasingly concerned that most of those attracted to Salafi ideology are impressionable young Muslims who are susceptible to perpetrating terrorist acts in the name of Islam.

Salafists—who trace their roots to Saudi Arabia and glorify an idealized version of what they believe was the original Islam practiced in the 7th and 8th centuries—openly state that they want to replace democracy in Germany (and the rest of the world) with an Islamic government based on sharia law.

Salafist ideology posits that sharia law is superior to all secular laws because it comes from Allah, the only legitimate lawgiver, and thus is legally binding for all of humanity. According to the Salafist worldview, democracy is an effort to elevate the will of human beings above the will of Allah. As such, participation in the democratic process is polytheism (shirk in Arabic) and must be rejected.” Read more.

    Islam is way worse than anything man has ever known like a dark cloud that suddenly solidifies killing whoever when they least expect it with Muslims saying the opposite to what just happened being a liar of all liars. It boggles my mind how Muslims can follow a person who calls himself a deceiver saying the deceiver speaks truth. That is contradictory, oxymoronic.

      People will do some pretty extreme and senseless stuff when they are afraid for their own lives. All practicing muslims are deathly afraid of their own wicked belief system and they are deathly afraid that someone will call them out for not being ‘muslim’ enough! Same thing happened in Nazi Germany. The penalty in both cases was and is still death!
