My turn.

Locked out of RB, can't sign in.

Says they're doing maintenance, but everyone else is posting. I made the mistake of signing off.

After awhile, I tried "forgot password."

It sent an email to an old gmail account I forgot was on my RB account and which I can't get into, as I don't know the name or password.

Signup is disabled, so I can't open a new RB account.

Left them (Cerbeus?) a message via their form.

Time for a nap. zzzzz.

If you read this Bob,
I just wanted to say that in my opinion, the collection basket should be no problem at all. In fact, it is you who keep the doors open and we should help to take care of that.

Please note the board rules I emphasized and will do my best to monitor. I am pretty sure I know what was written and it is an UGLY word.
NO MORE here...... I promise.

Thanks for the opportunity Bob!

Hi ZIM!

I don't know what happened.
I suspect, that Snapits was busy writing not so kind words regarding folks of other races and got in trouble because that is not what Bob wants on his website.

He cannot tolerate that because he does not want ANY problems, and I cannot blame him for wanting smooth sailing and no trouble..

You can contact me at my GMAIL account.
MIB608@gmail.com

Hopefully we'll get it figured out and see about starting a new board.

Maybe we need it under new ownership and have to constrain Snapits' language....

I'll start POPE IV

FERGUSON BOMBERS SENTENCED

FERGUSON BOMBERS SENTENCED

Two Black Panthers get a slap on the wrist, courtesy of the Obama administration.

September 9, 2015
Matthew Vadum

A foiled plot to use bombs to assassinate the police chief, county prosecutor, and other officials in troubled Ferguson, Mo., and also blow up the iconic Gateway Arch in nearby St. Louis, has ended in federal prison terms for two New Black Panther Party members.

In a sweetheart plea bargain deal, Olajuwon Davis and Brandon Orlando Baldwin, both radical black Muslim men in their twenties, received mere seven-year custodial sentences last week from U.S. District Judge Henry Autrey when they could have been sent to prison for decades. The men were sentenced "on charges of planning and conspiring to ignite explosive devices during the Ferguson protests and procuring firearms for convicted felons," according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri.

U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan congratulated law enforcement for preventing what might have been a major disaster. "The disruption of this plot ... undoubtedly saved lives. Luckily for all of us, we’ll never know just how many," he said.

Davis and Baldwin met when they participated in the protests in Ferguson that followed the Aug. 9, 2014 death of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man. Brown was killed by white then-police officer Darren Wilson when he charged Wilson after trying to wrest his service weapon from him. Brown's death sparked riots in Ferguson and across America. Soon after meeting, Davis and Baldwin began plotting to arm fellow demonstrators and destroy the Gateway Arch.

The sentencing comes as black nationalists and members of the Black Lives Matter movement escalate calls for violent attacks on police, while the Obama administration responds by sitting on its hands. Last month Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called for "10,000 fearless men" to come forward and slaughter white Americans. Black-supremacist King Noble is calling on blacks to murder whites and police. "It's not safe no more to be white in America," Noble announced in a viral YouTube video.

"Lurking behind any corner could be an angry black man ready to take yo ass out."

It also comes as the terrorist-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) throws its lot in with the increasingly violent Black Lives Matter movement. Breitbart News reports that "CAIR leaders and members joined Black Lives Matter in a march on the California State Capitol on [Sept. 2], targeting Gov. Jerry Brown’s office over a new bill that, in part, would expand bans on racial profiling to include perceived ethnicity." The fact that CAIR is siding with violent activists against police "creates a serious problem for CAIR’s defenders, which argue that its associations with Islamic extremism can be overlooked because it helps law enforcement work with, and within, the Muslim community."

Davis and Baldwin were arrested in November last year during a federal sting operation that concluded days before St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch, a white Democrat, broke the news that a local grand jury refused to indict Wilson in the shooting death of Brown. McCulloch was already disliked by local activists and black Democratic lawmakers who accused him of being too close to the police. McCulloch comes from a law enforcement family and his father, a police officer, was fatally shot in the line of duty by a black man when McCulloch was 12 years old.

When Davis and Baldwin entered guilty pleas this past June, they admitted their plan to acquire explosives that were to be used against the Gateway Arch, McCulloch, then-Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson (a white man), a police station, and an armed vehicle the police used during anti-police protests.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth Tihen said the two men were arrested after buying what they thought were three functional pipe bombs from a federal agent. No bombs were detonated and none of the would-be targets suffered harm. The two men also unlawfully straw-purchased three handguns for two convicted felons at a sporting goods store where Baldwin worked. The felons, who were urged to sell the guns on the street, were working undercover for the government, Tihen said.

Davis left evidence of his state of mind on social media two days before he was arrested. He signaled in a Facebook post Nov. 19, 2014, that he was being followed:

Family and Friends, everyday I got Caucasians following me in SUV trucks. Please be advised that if you show any signs of noncompliance with this Devil they will try to assasinate [sic] you. Lord smite my enemies and anyone who intends to bring me harm. Ashe! In the spirit of Ogun! Protect me. Ashe!


Later in the comments thread Davis indicated he turned off the GPS tracking function on his phone.

Thanks family! Love you all. My phone keep trying to do GPS when I disabled it. Funny...smh [shaking my head] All weapons formed against shall NEVER prosper. God got US. All is for the greater good. Know that.

In a separate, factually-challenged, semi-coherent Facebook post the same day, Davisoffered some insights into why he wanted to destroy the Gateway Arch, which he described as "the Shackle of Oppression." He wrote:

"Saint Louis" is a Slave Capital in a Slave State! Look what Picture of History I discovered in McDonald's lobby. Notice the hooded Clansman [sic] !!?? Notice the crucifix[e]s and Arch!? Fireworks?!! What is being celebrated or honored!!??

St. Louis, the Christian European Conqueror ... and this City was founded as a milestone of Westward expansion aka "take the land from the Native Aboriginals".

The Arch is the Shackle of Oppression.

My theory is, if you want to Control the New World then you Chain it at its Heart, which is Mound City/Midwest/St. Louis. ...


White Supremacy has the World/Planet around its Neck link a Jesus Piece and it is linked at the Arch. Think about it, if one wanted to wear the World on a Chain or keep it Chained up, the Arch would be the place where one would connect the Links. Yet, we worship and reverence a structure that was built as a Symbol of Our destruction and demise.

Of course the main injustice Davis and Baldwin sought to make a statement about was no injustice at all. The late Michael Brown was no "gentle giant," as the media portrayed him (and continues to portray him).

Contrary to early media reports, Brown attacked Wilson and did not put his arms in the air in an attempt to surrender to the officer. That Brown attacked Wilson was confirmed by all official investigations and by the three separate autopsies performed on Brown's body. Minutes before the attack, the hulking Brown had committed a strong-arm robbery at a convenience store where he roughed up a diminutive store clerk who emigrated to the U.S. from India.

Context-free media reports that Brown was shot by a white cop while unarmed led to a firestorm that boosted the Black Lives Matter movement and the false Internet meme, "hands up, don't shoot," that was quickly adopted by left-wing activists across America. Egged on by President Obama and then-Attorney General Eric Holder who treated Brown's death as an self-evident racial injustice riots followed in Ferguson and across America.

Holder sent community organizers from the Justice Department's Community Relations Service (CRS) to Ferguson presumably to agitate against local authorities as they did in Sanford, Fla. following the death of Trayvon Martin, a young black man who attacked neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in 2012.

Obama fanned the flames of racial unrest in Ferguson and elsewhere throughout the fall of 2014.

For example, after saying he wouldn't comment on the then-ongoing investigation into the shooting, Obama told a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner on Sept. 28, 2014 that the American justice system was biased against black people and that it "stains the heart of black children who feel as if no matter what he does, he will always be under suspicion." Of Brown's death, Obama said, "the anger and the emotion that followed his death awakened our nation once again to the reality that people in this room have long understood, which is, in too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement." Of course Obama omitted the role that he played in whipping up anti-police hysteria.

Four days before, Obama did his best to turn Brown's death into even more of an international media spectacle that it already was at the time. The president criticized his own country in a speech at the United Nations, saying "I know the world took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri -- where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So, yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions." Again, the Community Organizer-in-Chief failed to mention the role he played in ratcheting up those racial and ethnic tensions.

Racial arsonist Al Sharpton, a close advisor to Obama, delivered a fiery eulogy at Brown's funeral, which Obama sent three federal officials to attend. Sharpton said the response to Brown's death, which included information on what the decedent was really like, showed that "something is wrong in America."

Sharpton is right. Something is wrong in America.

All he need do is look in a mirror.

Maliki rejects nomination of Al-Abadi for prime minister

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has resisted calls from the U.S. to relinquish power as three candidates, including President Fouad Massoum's nominee, vie for the position. Maliki on Sunday threatened legal challenges against Massoum for not nominating him. Separately, countries are offering weapons to Iraqi Kurds, who retook two towns after U.S. airstrikes on Islamic State militants.

Salafist Extremists Islamizing Germany's Public Schools

Primary and secondary schools in Hamburg, in particular, have been the target of an organized strategy of intimidation, influence.

By Soeren Kern
Tue, May 13, 2014

Muslim radicals are imposing Islamic norms and values in primary and secondary public schools in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, say school officials, who are asking for stepped-up monitoring of the Salafist groups thought to be behind the Islamization efforts.

At least 25 schools across Hamburg are believed to have been infiltrated by Salafists and other fundamentalist Muslim groups, according to German media reports. But local politicians from the ruling Social Democratic Party (SPD)—a party committed to enforcing multiculturalism in Hamburg—have refused to disclose precisely which schools are affected.

Now, for the first time, a confidential report leaked to the German newspaper Bild identifies seven of the problem schools by name. The schools where Islamist extremists are "waging a religious war" against non-Muslim teachers and classmates are located in districts across the city, the document says, but the situation in Mümmelmannsberg in eastern Hamburg is "particularly appalling" and "the focus of an organized strategy" by Islamists to recruit new followers.

Teachers and school administrators say that efforts by Muslim fundamentalists to run the schools "according to their own rules" have increased in recent months, and speculation is rife that the document was leaked by someone seeking to force city officials into taking more forceful action.

School principals are being pressured, among other demands, into setting up special prayer rooms for Muslim children, who are increasingly gathering for prayers and shouting Islamist slogans on school playgrounds. Girls are requesting exemptions from gym classes and swimming lessons, and are being harassed if they fail to dress according to Islamic norms.

Teachers at the Öjendorf District School and the An der Glinder Au primary school say that some Muslim parents are being asked by other Muslims to ensure their daughters are dressing according to Islamic standards. The pressure to conform to Islamic norms has been "especially great" at the Mümmelmannsberg District School, where teachers have observed gender discrimination, coercion on clothing issues and cases of religiously motivated violence.

Muslim students at the Bergedorf District School in southeastern Hamburg frequently provoke "aggressive verbal confrontations" that have a clear "Salafist orientation and influence," according to the report. Similar incidents have been reported at schools in the Hamm and Stellingen districts.

The latest allegations mirror those contained in a separate document—entitled "Religiously Colored Conflict Situations in Hamburg Schools" [Religiös gefärbte Konfliktlagen an Hamburger Schulen] and dated December 2013—that was leaked to a German newspaper in February 2014.

The document was produced by the Landesinstituts für Lehrerbildung, an official training institute for teachers. Although Hamburg officials are refusing to make the document available to the general public, excerpts of it were published by the Hamburger Morgenpost on February 17.

The document warns that increasing numbers of students in Hamburg are being influenced by Islamist propaganda and are embracing radical Islam and idolizing jihadist fighters in Syria. The report—which is said to paint a frightening picture of what is taking place in schools across the city—says that school principals are alarmed and confused and are seeking help from state authorities.

According to the Hamburger Morgenpost, Islamists are pressuring female students to wear headscarves and skip swimming lessons. Teachers are being subjected to religiously motivated threats of violence and constant trouble over "eating, physical education and prayer opportunities in schools," as well as the content of religious education.

Girls are "not allowed to dance or play" and are "prohibited from going on school trips." Teachers have found the notebooks of some students to be filled with "particularly radical Salafist propaganda." The report describes the case of an Alevi [a sect within Shia Islam] student who was bullied so much by Sunni classmates that his parents took him out of school.

Radicalized parents are "demanding prayer opportunities in classrooms," and youth are "organizing spontaneous group prayers at central locations within schools with the express intention of provoking confrontation." Efforts to halt such prayers are fruitless because Muslim students say they have a "constitutional right to religious freedom."

The document says that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are particularly vulnerable to radicalization, and that the war in Syria is fueling religious fervor in schools to such an extent that jihadists are being idolized. One school says the "tension and concern is palpable," and has asked German authorities for help.

An article published by another Hamburg newspaper, the Hamburger Abendblatt, provides an in-depth look at the pressure tactics used by Islamists in Hamburg schools. The article says there are many indications that the problem is much bigger than currently known, partly because many teachers and school administrators are afraid to report incidents of intimidation, harassment, threats and abuse.

At one school, a teacher wanted to organize a parent-teacher conference after he was threatened by radical Muslim students. But two colleagues who were also threatened backed out of the event at the last minute because they were afraid of the students. As a result, disciplinary actions were abandoned. The teacher was also told that the school board's Violence Prevention Unit was unable to help him. "The threat potential is large, the system is helpless," he said. "There must be clear rules and safeguards."

At another school located on the other side of Hamburg, a veteran teacher says that lately he has observed that many of the female students have adopted an Islamic dress code. "Their behavior has also changed" he says, "and they look similar to 'black widows' [female suicide bombers in the Caucasus]."

Hamburg authorities—who concluded a "historic treaty" with the city's 200,000-strong Muslim community in November 2012—have downplayed the problems, describing them as "isolated incidents." Hamburg Senator Ties Rabe, who is responsible for the city's schools, issued a statement on February 21 saying that Salafism is not welcome in the classroom and problem students could be expelled from school. But he also put the responsibility on teachers to "ensure a peaceful coexistence on the school grounds."

The problems in Hamburg are drawing renewed attention to the alarming growth of Salafism in Germany. Salafists, who trace their roots to Saudi Arabia, openly state that they want to replace democracy in Germany (and the rest of the world) with a Sunni Islamic government based on sharia law.

According to German intelligence, the number of committed Salafists in Germany now exceeds 5,500, up from 4,500 in 2012 and 3,800 in 2011. Around 70% are Germans and 30% are non-Germans, coming from a variety of nations including Turkey, Morocco and Bosnia. About a quarter of the Salafists in Germany are Muslim converts.

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

Germany has banned several Salafist Muslim groups—"DawaFFM," "Islamische Audios," "An-Nusrah," "Millatu Ibrahim," "Hizb ut-Tahrir"—that it says wants to "overturn democracy and install a system based on Islamic Sharia law."

"Salafism ... is incompatible with our free democratic order," former German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said in March 2013. "The groups aim to change our society in an aggressive, belligerent way so that democracy would be replaced by a Salafist system, and the rule of law replaced by sharia law."

Hans-Georg Maaßen, the head of Germany's domestic intelligence agency, the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV), says the Salafist threat to Germany is rising and warns that unless the government "takes decisive action against violent Islamists," the Salafist groups "will continue to grow and the threat of violence will increase."

A recent exposé by the Hamburger Abendblatt shows that Salafism is alive and well in Germany. The number of its adherents is swelling in all parts of the country, due in part to young Muslims who are becoming radicalized by the war in Syria. German Salafists are also raising considerable amounts of money for the more than 300 German jihadists currently fighting the Syrian government.

Do you have your Ammunition Purchase Permit yet?

You’re visiting your local Turner’s Outdoorsman and to your surprise you find a precious few bricks of .22LR ammunition. Your young son and daughter smile knowing that this will be the weekend they get to break in that new Ruger 10/22 takedown rifle you bought back in 2013 to introduce them to plinking and target shooting.

But hold on a second- do you have your CA Ammunition Purchase Permit?!!! You submitted your fingerprints right? You underwent yet another background check? And you paid more fees to the DOJ? And you’re ready to “register” that ammo purchase with the state, right?

As you’re digesting this, your buddy calls and you excitedly tell him about the .22LR ammo you found at Turner’s and he asks you to buy him- “sure”, you say, wondering now if you’ll break the law by giving him the ammunition. Maybe you’ll just buy it for yourself but then again, someone with the state might want to pay you a visit wondering why you’re buying thousands- 1,575 to be exact- of rounds of ammo when you have no guns in .22LR registered to you. Of course during their visit to your house, they’ll realize that you have 3 rimfire rifles that you purchased before long gun registration began in 2014 but that’s long after your neighbors have posted their cell videos of all the silver sedans parked all around your house.

Sound far-fetched? Well SB-53 (De Leon D-Los Angeles) will create a new bureaucracy by creating the Ammunition Purchaser’s Permit, requiring you to submit fingerprints and fees to the DOJ and will create an ammunition purchase registry. It will also eliminate online ammunition sales for all law abiding shooters be they hunters, 3-gun competitors, clays shooters or folks who just like to go plinking from time to time.

What can you do? Glad you asked! First follow this link and enter your zip code.

http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/

That will return the contact info for your CA State Assembly Member. Being that SB-53 can be brought to a vote on the Assembly Floor at any time, your Assembly member needs to hear from you today!

What else can you do? Invest what you think it is worth to keep your 2A Rights by joining and contributing to the NRA or CRPA, or join and/or donate to the Calguns Foundation. All three of these groups have lobbyists on the ground in Sacramento fighting SB-53 and other anti-gun legislation. Again decide what’s worth to keep your liberty and please get involved. If we don’t get involved, the scenario above will be tomorrow’s reality.

dg, Ah, you're rotating boards. That's fair.

I'm way too busy at this point, but perhaps down the road. Thanks for the offer. My regards to all. Hope everyone's doing well.

Has been raining a lot. It really poured last night and it sprinkled this morning. I had a conference today in the City and it took me three hours to go roughly 60 miles and it wasn't really raining.

Thankfully, we don't get flooding on this side of the island, so my home is not in danger.

That is probably a part of America's future.

Hey Linda, how about stopping by PopeIII. We could use you smarts over there. Hope the rain is not causing you problems.

Snowden's the tip of the iceberg in Germany.

The Islamists are starting in our schools, too. We are like sheep going to the slaughter. This kind of stuff needs to be stopped before it gets started.

Salafist Extremists Islamizing Germany's Public Schools

Primary and secondary schools in Hamburg, in particular, have been the target of an organized strategy of intimidation, influence.

By Soeren Kern
Tue, May 13, 2014

Muslim radicals are imposing Islamic norms and values in primary and secondary public schools in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, say school officials, who are asking for stepped-up monitoring of the Salafist groups thought to be behind the Islamization efforts.

At least 25 schools across Hamburg are believed to have been infiltrated by Salafists and other fundamentalist Muslim groups, according to German media reports. But local politicians from the ruling Social Democratic Party (SPD)—a party committed to enforcing multiculturalism in Hamburg—have refused to disclose precisely which schools are affected.

Now, for the first time, a confidential report leaked to the German newspaper Bild identifies seven of the problem schools by name. The schools where Islamist extremists are "waging a religious war" against non-Muslim teachers and classmates are located in districts across the city, the document says, but the situation in Mümmelmannsberg in eastern Hamburg is "particularly appalling" and "the focus of an organized strategy" by Islamists to recruit new followers.

Teachers and school administrators say that efforts by Muslim fundamentalists to run the schools "according to their own rules" have increased in recent months, and speculation is rife that the document was leaked by someone seeking to force city officials into taking more forceful action.

School principals are being pressured, among other demands, into setting up special prayer rooms for Muslim children, who are increasingly gathering for prayers and shouting Islamist slogans on school playgrounds. Girls are requesting exemptions from gym classes and swimming lessons, and are being harassed if they fail to dress according to Islamic norms.

Teachers at the Öjendorf District School and the An der Glinder Au primary school say that some Muslim parents are being asked by other Muslims to ensure their daughters are dressing according to Islamic standards. The pressure to conform to Islamic norms has been "especially great" at the Mümmelmannsberg District School, where teachers have observed gender discrimination, coercion on clothing issues and cases of religiously motivated violence.

Muslim students at the Bergedorf District School in southeastern Hamburg frequently provoke "aggressive verbal confrontations" that have a clear "Salafist orientation and influence," according to the report. Similar incidents have been reported at schools in the Hamm and Stellingen districts.

The latest allegations mirror those contained in a separate document—entitled "Religiously Colored Conflict Situations in Hamburg Schools" [Religiös gefärbte Konfliktlagen an Hamburger Schulen] and dated December 2013—that was leaked to a German newspaper in February 2014.

The document was produced by the Landesinstituts für Lehrerbildung, an official training institute for teachers. Although Hamburg officials are refusing to make the document available to the general public, excerpts of it were published by the Hamburger Morgenpost on February 17.

The document warns that increasing numbers of students in Hamburg are being influenced by Islamist propaganda and are embracing radical Islam and idolizing jihadist fighters in Syria. The report—which is said to paint a frightening picture of what is taking place in schools across the city—says that school principals are alarmed and confused and are seeking help from state authorities.

According to the Hamburger Morgenpost, Islamists are pressuring female students to wear headscarves and skip swimming lessons. Teachers are being subjected to religiously motivated threats of violence and constant trouble over "eating, physical education and prayer opportunities in schools," as well as the content of religious education.

Girls are "not allowed to dance or play" and are "prohibited from going on school trips." Teachers have found the notebooks of some students to be filled with "particularly radical Salafist propaganda." The report describes the case of an Alevi [a sect within Shia Islam] student who was bullied so much by Sunni classmates that his parents took him out of school.

Radicalized parents are "demanding prayer opportunities in classrooms," and youth are "organizing spontaneous group prayers at central locations within schools with the express intention of provoking confrontation." Efforts to halt such prayers are fruitless because Muslim students say they have a "constitutional right to religious freedom."

The document says that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are particularly vulnerable to radicalization, and that the war in Syria is fueling religious fervor in schools to such an extent that jihadists are being idolized. One school says the "tension and concern is palpable," and has asked German authorities for help.

An article published by another Hamburg newspaper, the Hamburger Abendblatt, provides an in-depth look at the pressure tactics used by Islamists in Hamburg schools. The article says there are many indications that the problem is much bigger than currently known, partly because many teachers and school administrators are afraid to report incidents of intimidation, harassment, threats and abuse.

At one school, a teacher wanted to organize a parent-teacher conference after he was threatened by radical Muslim students. But two colleagues who were also threatened backed out of the event at the last minute because they were afraid of the students. As a result, disciplinary actions were abandoned. The teacher was also told that the school board's Violence Prevention Unit was unable to help him. "The threat potential is large, the system is helpless," he said. "There must be clear rules and safeguards."

At another school located on the other side of Hamburg, a veteran teacher says that lately he has observed that many of the female students have adopted an Islamic dress code. "Their behavior has also changed" he says, "and they look similar to 'black widows' [female suicide bombers in the Caucasus]."

Hamburg authorities—who concluded a "historic treaty" with the city's 200,000-strong Muslim community in November 2012—have downplayed the problems, describing them as "isolated incidents." Hamburg Senator Ties Rabe, who is responsible for the city's schools, issued a statement on February 21 saying that Salafism is not welcome in the classroom and problem students could be expelled from school. But he also put the responsibility on teachers to "ensure a peaceful coexistence on the school grounds."

The problems in Hamburg are drawing renewed attention to the alarming growth of Salafism in Germany. Salafists, who trace their roots to Saudi Arabia, openly state that they want to replace democracy in Germany (and the rest of the world) with a Sunni Islamic government based on sharia law.

According to German intelligence, the number of committed Salafists in Germany now exceeds 5,500, up from 4,500 in 2012 and 3,800 in 2011. Around 70% are Germans and 30% are non-Germans, coming from a variety of nations including Turkey, Morocco and Bosnia. About a quarter of the Salafists in Germany are Muslim converts.

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

Germany has banned several Salafist Muslim groups—"DawaFFM," "Islamische Audios," "An-Nusrah," "Millatu Ibrahim," "Hizb ut-Tahrir"—that it says wants to "overturn democracy and install a system based on Islamic Sharia law."

"Salafism ... is incompatible with our free democratic order," former German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said in March 2013. "The groups aim to change our society in an aggressive, belligerent way so that democracy would be replaced by a Salafist system, and the rule of law replaced by sharia law."

Hans-Georg Maaßen, the head of Germany's domestic intelligence agency, the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV), says the Salafist threat to Germany is rising and warns that unless the government "takes decisive action against violent Islamists," the Salafist groups "will continue to grow and the threat of violence will increase."

A recent exposé by the Hamburger Abendblatt shows that Salafism is alive and well in Germany. The number of its adherents is swelling in all parts of the country, due in part to young Muslims who are becoming radicalized by the war in Syria. German Salafists are also raising considerable amounts of money for the more than 300 German jihadists currently fighting the Syrian government.
