We keep hearing about the “Salafist scene” in Germany — it sounds like a swinging neighborhood where Islamic hipsters reeking of hookah smoke gather to groove with their jihad buddies and burka chicks.
The following news story describes coordinated police raids on Salafist charities all across Germany. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|00:00||Raids on Islamist Network in Nine German Federal States|
|00:04||The police have raided and searched the business premises of organisations|
|00:07||connected to the Salafist scene in several German federal states, according to|
|00:10||the people’s federal office for constitutional protection. The main targets of the crackdown|
|00:13||were the offices of The Worldwide Resistance Help and Ansaar International,|
|00:17||the Interior Ministry announced. The organisations claim|
|00:20||to collect donations for humanitarian aid in Gaza,|
|00:23||Somalia and Syria. There is evidence that the aid|
|00:27||would especially benefit the Palestinian Hamas organization,|
|00:31||according to authorities. The US, Israel and Germany|
|00:34||classify Hamas as a terrorist organization.
