Young Turks turn towards militant Islam

The National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism (Dutch) NCTb Tjibbe Joustra wrote in his three-monthly report that young Turks in the Netherlands are increasingly under the spell of Islamic groups that want to overtrow the power that be and promote Sharia through violence.

Sofar it was mostly Moroccans who were recruited by such groups.

Turks were mostly oriented toward their own community and were not attracted to violent Islamic groups. Due to the increasing resistance in Dutch society against Islam and Muslims in general, plus the news coverage of the events in the Middle East young Turks are now turning against Dutch society.

The Turkish organisation Milli Görüs has denied that Turks are joining terrorist cells and said that their imams are countering the trend.
