Germany’s “Demagogue of Armed Jihad”

A German rapper-turned-jihadist has called on his followers to carry out terrorist attacks in Germany.

In a high-quality video released by the Islamic State in April, Denis Cuspert also warns that terrorist sleeper cells have infiltrated Germany and are ready for activation.

German authorities say they are taking the threats seriously: Cuspert — who has been likened to Nazi Minister for Propaganda Joseph Goebbels — has become the Islamic State’s chief propagandist in the German language and is unusually capable of inspiring disillusioned young Germans to become jihadists.

Cuspert’s transformation from rapper to jihadist is documented in a 25-page analysis produced by the German intelligence service, which has described him as “quite simply the most interesting propagandist of the Salafist movement in the German-speaking realm.”
