Born Again Muslims Threaten Dutch
World News Article | Reuters.co.uk
: "AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch secret service says combating terrorism also means tackling the problem of thousands of disaffected 'born again' Muslims in the West who are open to the appeal of a radical, puritan version of Islam.
The AIVD intelligence service said fighting extremist Islam demanded much more subtlety and concentrating only on Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network was a mistake as many militants operated outside any formal group structures.
The AIVD, which has previously said it is monitoring about 150 suspected Islamist militants in The Netherlands, said 'several thousand' Muslims, mostly youngsters, were vulnerable to the appeal of radical Islam. The Netherlands is home to about 1 million Muslims, or about 6 percent of the population."
