BERLIN — The German Interior Ministry ordered simultaneous raids in three states on Tuesday against what it called Salafist networks suspected of seeking the imposition of an Islamic state. The action signaled growing concern over the radical messages of some Islamic groups.I have long blogged that those who advocate sharia are guilty of treason and sedition and should be deported or jailed. These types of police actions should be routine in all democracies worldwide.
The raids, in Bremen, Lower Saxony and North Rhine Westphalia, were not linked to a recent terror alert reportedly inspired by phone calls from a man who said he wanted to quit working with terrorists and who warned of a pending Mumbai-style attack, the Interior Ministry said.
The ministry statement said the raids were directed at two groups — Invitation to Paradise in the cities of Brunswick and Mönchengladbach and the Islamic Culture Center of Bremen on the North Sea coast. The two groups work closely together and share the same ideology, according to a security official quoted by The Associated Press. The authorities are seeking to outlaw both groups.
The statement said the groups were suspected of opposing constitutional order by seeking to “overthrow it in favor of an Islamic theocracy.” There was no indication that any arrests were made.
Salafism - by any name - is incompatible with the Free World.
IT SHOULD BE EXPELLED FROM OUR MIDST!
