Germany raids Islamist groups
New law takes away extremists' religious immunity
Kate Connolly in Berlin
Thursday December 13, 2001
A network of extremist Islamic groups based in Germany was outlawed yesterday under new legislation that lets the state act to dissolve religious organisations with suspected links to terrorism.
During the day searches and raids were carried out on houses, offices and mosques in seven German states, the police said.
The Kaplan organisation, a Cologne-based Islamic group, and a sister foundation, the Servants of Islam, were banned along with 19 connected organisations, involving a total of 1,100 members, the interior ministry said.
The nationwide clampdown follows the introduction of a controversial security package assembled by the interior minister, Otto Schily, after the September 11 attacks on the US.
Under the new law approved by Germany's centre-left coalition last month, a so-called "religion privilege" clause was struck from the statute books, removing protection for any organisations suspected of promoting terrorism.
Police have said that a number of members of the raided groups are known to have travelled to Afghanistan to meet supporters of Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida network in the late 1990s.
The Kaplan group, led by Metin Kaplan, nicknamed the "Caliph of Cologne", has been under the police spotlight for years.
Kaplan, a native Turk, was sentenced to four years in a Düsseldorf jail a year ago for calling for the murder of a religious rival. He is wanted in Turkey on treason charges.
The authorities in Germany had been reluctant to hand him over until assurances were given that he would not face the death penalty. But yesterday Mr Schily said that extradition proceedings were "immediately enforceable"; talks had begun with Ankara.

Germany: Frankfurt prosecutors probe Islamic centre
From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (thanks to Sharon):
FRANKFURT, Germany -- Police on Monday searched computer hard-drives and discs seized from a Moroccan mosque in Frankfurt looking for evidence of violent films, including a beheading, that a young girl said were shown to her and other children to try and incite hatred toward non-Muslims, authorities said.
Some 120 officers raided the Taqwa Mosque's Islamic school on Sunday after the 9-year-old told her public school teacher she and other children were shown violent videos calling for a "holy war against unbelievers," Frankfurt prosecutor's spokeswoman Doris Mueller-Scheu said.
Mosque director Ahmed Ayaou called the raid an insult, and said he did not know who the girl was or what she was talking about.
"This was very surprising - it fell upon us like a blow," he said. "Our association accepts and respects German law. We are well known in Frankfurt, and we live with everyone peacefully."
He criticized police for coming in to the mosque with weapons and not taking their shoes off as they searched the building.
I wonder what he thinks when Al-Sadr's men in Iraq go into mosques with weapons.

German Authorities Close Islamic "Multi-Kultur" Center
How easy it is for jihadists to operate under the cloak of multiculturalism. "German Authorities Close Islamic Center," from AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
BERLIN - Authorities on Wednesday shut down an Islamic center once attended by a man who accuses the CIA of kidnapping him and sending him to a secret Afghan prison to be abused and interrogated.
The man's lawyer has linked the alleged kidnapping to the investigation of extremist activity at the center.
The state government of Bavaria said Wednesday it was shutting down the Multi-Kultur-Haus association in the southern town of Neu-Ulm after it seized material urging Muslims to carry out suicide attacks in Iraq.
Khaled al-Masri, a Kuwait-born German citizen who is suing the CIA for allegedly spiriting him to Afghanistan for interrogation, has said he visited the center several times before he was snatched....
Al-Masri has denied any connection to terrorism.
Bavarian Interior Minister Guenther Beckstein told The Associated Press on Wednesday that investigators had noticed al-Masri visiting the Multi-Kultur-Haus but called him "rather a marginal figure."
Beckstein's ministry said the association was promoting extremist ideas and armed "holy war."
2nd suspect captured in German bomb plot
By Mark Landler The New York Times Published: August 24, 2006
FRANKFURT The second key suspect in a failed plot to bomb two German trains turned himself in to the police in Lebanon on Thursday, encouraging the German authorities in a murky case that has unnerved this country and prompted a debate over the government's anti-terrorism policies. The suspect, Jihad Hamad, a 20-year- old Lebanese man, surrendered and was arrested in Tripoli, in northern Lebanon, after the Lebanese authorities contacted his family, German officials said. The German government will push to have Hamad extradited, a process that federal prosecutors said could take months. But officials in Frankfurt praised the arrest, and Lebanon's role in the capture of another suspect in Germany last weekend, as an example of international cooperation in fighting terrorism. "This is a major success for our agencies, which have cooperated intensively with foreign institutions," Chancellor Angela Merkel said in an interview with a German cable news channel, N24. Germans have been on edge since July 31, when the police found two suitcases hiding unexploded bombs on trains in Dortmund and Koblenz. The involvement of Lebanese men, and the suspicion that others aided the plot, have fed fears that Germany is the next target for Islamic terrorism. Hamad and his alleged accomplice, Youssef Muhammed el-Hajdib, both fled to Lebanon immediately after they planted the suitcases, according to an official involved in the investigation. Hajdib, 21, returned to Germany a week later and was arrested in the northern city of Kiel on Aug. 19, after police released grainy video images of him and Hamad from surveillance cameras that showed the two men boarding trains with bulky suitcases at a station in Cologne. The pictures rattled Hajdib, according to investigators, prompting him to call his family in Lebanon for advice. Lebanon's military intelligence agency intercepted the call and tipped off the German police. Though Hamad remained in Lebanon, he, too, was flushed out after German authorities released his name and photograph. After the Lebanese police spoke to his parents, he surrendered in Tripoli. "In this case, everything worked quite well," August Hanning, secretary of state for the Interior Ministry, said in an interview, referring to German anti- terror measures like video surveillance of public places. But Hanning, echoing other senior officials, said Germany needed to tighten its measures to prevent future attacks. Among the issues coming under particular scrutiny is the use of the Internet by terrorist groups, which officials say played a role in both the train bombing plot and the foiled plan to blow up passenger planes flying to the United States from Britain. The police suspect that the Lebanese men may have consulted a Web site, accessible with a password, to construct the explosives, according to an official involved in the investigation. The bombs were fueled by propane gas and rigged with alarm clocks to detonate at 2:30 p.m. The police say the men probably constructed the devices in an apartment in Cologne that was Hamad's most recent address. They believe that other people may have helped with expertise or bomb-making material. "We know from experience that the Internet is playing a greater and greater role in the distribution of information," said Hanning, a former head of the federal intelligence service. "We want to extend our effort to watch the Internet, and to track down radical Web sites." That is a tricky business, anti-terrorism experts said, because of the amorphous nature of the Internet. At the Office for the Protection of the Constitution - a rough equivalent of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation - in the state of Baden-Württemberg, a special task force routinely monitors 1,000 Web sites for signs of threatening activity. "We used to have only a dozen favorite sites we searched regularly," said Benno Köpper, a member of the task force. "Now we have reached our limits. Also, the sites used to be mostly text documents. Today, there are so many more download files available." While officials in Germany are relieved by the arrest of Hamad, they remain nervous that other plotters remain at large. Hajdib, they speculate, may have returned to Germany to try again, after the first bombs did not explode. He has not yet discussed his motives with the authorities. Investigators are also troubled by evidence that the young men veered into Islamic extremism after they arrived in Germany. Hajdib, they said, marched in a rally here against the publication in Denmark of cartoons lampooning the Prophet Muhammad. His family is suspected of having links to Hizb ut-Tahrir, a radical Islamic group banned in Germany. Hajdib's brother, a Lebanese soldier, was killed in mid-July during an Israeli bombing raid of the Tripoli port, officials here said. But the plot to bomb the trains, they believe, took root long before he was killed. Souad Mekhennet and Sarah Plass contributed reporting to this article. .
