    I’ll confess that I didn’t see this one coming. In dozens of cities across Germany, people woke up to a blistering series of police raids shutting down a large Islamic group which is suspected of recruiting fighters for ISIS. The group “True Religion” has now been banned across the country. (Washington Post)

    German police in 60 cities staged sweeping raids early Tuesday targeting the Islamist group True Religion on accusations of recruiting for the Islamic State, as authorities intensified a large scale crackdown against religious extremists.

    The Germans have launched hundreds of raids in recent months as they grapple with a heightened threat of terror following a spate of attacks in Germany and neighboring countries as well as elevated fears of homegrown radicalization.

    Police searched 190 mosques, apartments and offices connected to the Salafist, or ultraconservative, Muslim organization that is ubiquitous in Germany with its members setting up highly-visible welcome tables on busy streets. The group — also known by the name Read! — distributes translated copies of the Koran for free and attempts to spread the faith

    Maybe the Europeans are finally waking up to the fact that they've been invaded.
