Saudi Arabia and Gulf states ‘support Islamic extremism in Germany,’ intelligence report finds

From December:

Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Germany denies his government funds extremist groups

A brief seen by the Süddeutsche Zeitung and broadcasters NDR and WDR raised concern over a reported increase in support for fundamentalist Salafism in Germany, warning that the ideology already has 10,000 followers and is growing.

The report, by Germany’s BfV domestic intelligence agency and Federal Intelligence Service (BND) reportedly accused Gulf groups of funding mosques, religious schools, hardline preachers and conversion or “dawah” groups to spread the ideology.
