Intelligence Service: Salafist Mosque Increases Influence

The intelligence service AIVD writes in its annual report that an important group of Salafists connected to the As-Soennah mosque in The Hague has increasing influence on other mosques in the region. These mosques now also promote Salafism. The AIVD says that Salafist ideology contains elements which conflict with the democratic order. The AIVD is afraid of intolerant isolationism and polarization. At present, the group is not a danger to state security.
