(Before It's News)

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the Muslim faithful our soldiers…” – Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey

Indeed.

Controlled by the “German-speaking Islamic Circle”, which officials believe to be a “hotspot for the radical Salafist scene”, the mosque in Hildesheim was raided by around 370 officers. The state interior ministry also placed a ban on the group on Tuesday. Innocuous sounding names — sinister ambitions.

Mosques must be more closely monitored.

300 officers raid mosque and suspected ‘hotspot for radical Islamists’

The Local, 14 March 2017:

Police in Lower Saxony launched a major raid on Tuesday morning on the organization “German-speaking Islamic Circle”, which officials believe to be a “hotspot for the radical Salafist scene”.

Police in Lower Saxony launched a major raid on Tuesday morning on the organization “German-speaking Islamic Circle”, which officials believe to be a “hotspot for the radical Salafist scene”.

Around 370 officers took part in the raids beginning at 6am on the nationally active “German-speaking Islamic Circle” (DIK) in Hildesheim. The state interior ministry also placed a ban on the group on Tuesday.

Berlin Christmas market attacker Anis Amri, who killed 12 people in an Isis-claimed terror act in December, had also stayed with the group in February 2016.

According to officials, ‘hate preachers’ who were part of the group radicalized Muslims and encouraged them to become jihadist fighters in war-torn areas.

“Banning the association has crushed a hotspot for the radical Salafist scene in Germany,” said Lower Saxony interior minister Boris Pistorius.

The raids were conducted at the association’s mosque, as well as at the homes of eight members.

Police would not initially say whether any arrests were made. Officials also would not say to what extent evidence was seized during the operation.

Pistorius emphasized that the raids were not aimed at the many peaceful Muslims living in Germany, but rather at “deluded zealots” who abuse the religion for their own purposes, and as an excuse to support terrorist organizations.

The DIK was also the target of a police raid last year in Hildesheim. The mosque was also searched during another investigation in November when a key figure in the Islamist scene, Abu Walaa, was arrested. Abu Walaa reportedly gave sermons at the Hildesheim mosque and recruited many people to fight with Isis.
