ISIS & Islamist groups in Germany recruit refugees, infiltrate mosques – intel chief

Germany’s domestic intelligence agency said it has recorded at least 340 attempts by Islamic State and other Islamist groups to recruit potential fighters in refugee centers and local mosques that remain largely outside the government’s oversight.

“To date, there are more than 340 cases which are known to us,” Hans-Georg Maassen, head of Germany’s Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), said, as cited by Die Welt.

“But these are only the cases which we know. Probably, there could be more.”

    How many of the recruitment attempts were brought to the attention of the authorities by imams of these mosques?

    I doubt they are “infiltrating mosques”. More likely they are getting support and encouragement from mosques.

    How is it that there are ” refugee centers and local mosques that remain largely outside the government’s oversight.”? Why have a government?
