SPIEGEL journaillie discovers Â “young clerics who are preaching a “radical brand of Islam”.
These SPIEGEL dimbulbs should do some close reading before they put this uninformed rubbish to print. Â As if there was some Â kind of Islam which is moderate, ready to coexist with non-Muslims or reformable. There isn’t!
The journaillie is, as always, Â uninformed, ignorant and full of shiite just like the Koranimals.
Old ones, young ones, short ones, tall ones: what’s the difference!?
Is al Qaradawi in his wheelchair who screamed ‘bring me a Jew so I can kill him” in Tahrir square in Cairo a moderate?
Was the mass-murdering ayatollah Khomeini of Iran who married a 9-year old child when he was over 70 more moderate than the young punks who indoctrinate and radicalize young Muslims in Germany?

By Matthias Bartsch, Maximilian Popp and Christoph Scheuermann
Imams in Germany have long tended to be older menÂ who preach primarily in Turkish or Arabic. Now, though, officials are worried about a new breed of cleric: young, dynamic andÂ followers of a radical brand of Islam. Their adherents are growing in number.

None of his words are arbitrary. It is a show he has performed many times before. Sheikh Abdul Adhim knows which verses of the Koran appeal to his listeners, and which subjects they want to hear about. “Satan will tempt you with money and drugs” he tells the faithful at Berlin’s Al-Nur Mosque. “Only faith in Allah can protect you.” The members of the congregation nod. “No one preaches as beautifully as Abdul Adhim,” they say.
The 34-year-old Berliner is the most prominent figure in a community of young, radical imams who are gaining importance among German Muslims. They appear in mosques and civic centers, they live in cities like Frankfurt, Bonn and MÃ¶nchengladbach, and the Internet is their most important platform. Web-based videos have meant a rapid increase in both popularity and influence in the community. Hundreds of followers regularly make the pilgrimage to Adhim’s live rallies, or to those held by 33-year-old Pierre Vogel, from the town of Frechen near Cologne.
Pierre Vogel, a former boxer, has the kind of street credibility among young Muslims that many older imams in Germany don’t have. He too is an adherent of Salafist Islam.
