Catalonia the next target of the Muslim Brotherhood

The Muslim Brotherhood is slowly building up its pres­ence in Catalonia, Spain, part of a long-term strat­egy to plant roots in an Islamic community with Salafi tradi­tions.

Police said they have paid atten­tion to an increase in activities by Is­lamic groups in the area following an influx of money from mostly foreign sources. The added scrutiny comes in the wake of terrorist attacks in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils in August that left 16 peo­ple dead, with eight attackers also being killed.

A high-ranking police official in Catalonia’s anti-terrorism unit said: “The Muslim community (in Cata­lonia was) long under the influence of Salafists but lately the Muslim Brothers have started getting the up­per hand.”

    I’m guessing that is one of the reasons they are looking for independence … so that they can kick these people out.
