Muslim gang looted German churches for ISIS

October 26, 2015

Muslim terrorists in India have been looting Hindu temples there for years.  The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has been stealing from religious minorities to fund their caliphate.  Now the same approach of robbing non-Muslims and their holy places to fund jihad has been adopted by some Muslims living in Europe, namely a group of gangsters led by a Moroccan.  From The Local on Oct. 20:

Cologne gang ‘stole from churches to fund Isis’

Eight young men appeared in court in Cologne on Tuesday charged with robbing churches and schools to finance Isis’ religious war in Syria.

When they broke into churches they stole collection boxes, crosses and other objects “dedicated to church services and religious veneration” prosecutors allege.

From the schools, the men stole laptops, money and a cash card, which they used to finance jihadist fighters in the Syrian civil war, alleged chief prosecutor Nadja Gudermann.

Security measures were heightened around the Cologne city court as the men were brought from police detention.

During the burglaries, which took place between 2011-14, the men are alleged to have stolen €19,000 worth of goods and often seriously damaged the premises before they left.
