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.”
