A report from an influential group of politicians has warned that a huge rise in the Islamist scene in Germany has led to reports that radical Islamists want to establish their own state in Germany.

The President of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Hans-Georg Maassen, said he fears that extremists want to establish their own state in Germany. 

His committee report found that IS is making great use of media and social media in its ‘cyber jihad’ campaign. It said this included the use of “shocking images” as an element of “psychological warfare.”

According to Euro-Islam.info, Germany has the largest Muslim population in Western Europe after France. Approximately 3.0 to 3.5 million Muslims live in Germany, and 80 percent of them do not have German citizenship; 608,000 are German citizens. 100,000 of them are German converts to Islam.
