German mosque groups raising funds for Hezbollah
The head of Germany's federal agency for domestic intelligence and the country's Interior Ministry have recently presented a report showing Hezbollah's use of German based mosques and their affiliated organizations to raise funds for the terrorist group's activities in Lebanon.
According to the 2012 report published this month by the domestic intelligence agency, known as the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the terrorist organization finances its activities through "Hezbollah-affiliated mosque associations" and raises funds within the framework of "religious ceremonies" as well as membership contributions.
Dr. Hans-Peter Friedrich, the head of Germany's Interior Ministry, and Dr. Hans-Georg Maaßen, the relatively new director of the intelligence agency introduced the report several weeks ago in Berlin.
