Police Close ‘Islamic State Linked’ Mosque and Muslim Association After Raid

Authorities in the southwestern German state of Baden-Württemberg have closed down a Muslim association and mosque which is believed to have raised funds and recruited for Islamic State terrorists.

According to Baden-Württemberg’s Interior Minister Reinhold Gall, the Muslim association in question — the Islamic Educational and Cultural Center Mesdschid Sahabe — was visited by Salafist preachers and Islamist fundamentalists from the West Balkans, reports Deutsch Welle. He explained:

    If it has “Islamic” and “cultural” in the same sentence it belongs in the Onion…

    I hope this mosque and association are being held in comfortable facilities and there is no islamophobia being allowed around them. Mosques and associations are very sensitive.
