Oddly enough, the Muslim moderates and reformists that no doubt made up the overwhelming majority of the members of this mosque did not rise up and expel those who were working for the Islamic State. The reason for the anomaly eludes authorities.
“Germany: Over 400 police raid mosque,” by Victor Laszlo, The Rebel, March 15, 2017:
Hundreds of police in Germany raided, searched and closed a mosque and eight homes, and banned the organization “German Islamic Circle of Hildesheim” on March 14.
Concerning the ban and dissolution of the association, Interior Minister Boris Pistorius (SPD) said: “With the ban on the organization, a hotspot of the radical salafist scene in Germany was destroyed.” Muslims were targeted for indoctrination there to mobilize them to leave for Syria and Iraq, according to Pistorius. They were incited in the mosque of the DIK [German Islamic Circle] to the IS and to commit the most serious crimes. “The ban is a hard and important blow against Islamists in Lower Saxony.”
