Intelligence Services: Salafism has to be watched from a security perspective

The AIVD National Intelligence Services draws in its annual report attention to Salafism because of the worry about its ideas to legitimize intolerance, anti-democratic activities and polarization. The AIVD writes that promoters of Salafism put aside their differences to promote together aims in the name of Islam.  These goals include the monopolization of Islamic education and spiritual care.  Opposition is not tolerated. Often their attitudes are intimidating and claim the loyalty of Muslims to Islam.
