'True religion:' How Salafists lure supporters
by Nina Niebergall
German authorities have stepped up pressure on the "True Religion" Salafist group. Abou Nagie, a Cologne-based, Palestinian-born Salafist preacher, activist and businessman, is one of the group's leading figures.
"Islam is presented as though it is all about violence, hate, forced marriage and terror" - that's how a video on the internet site of the "True Religion" group starts off. Now banned by the German Interior Ministry, the organization was founded by Ibrahim, a German Muslim with a Palestinian background.
He is one Germany's most prominent Salafists. His declared aim: to improve the public image of Muslims and Islam.
