The average age of Islamic State militants in Germany is getting younger while their radicalization is accelerating in speed says the Federal Criminal Office (BKA), Germany’s intelligence service.

German authorities state that there are currently 43,000 jihadists in Germany today. In some cases, just a few weeks are needed for someone to be transported from Germany to Syria. BKA President Holger Munch told Deutsche Welle that there seem to be ever more potential fighters to be recruited for Jihad or “holy war”.

She states that the jihadists living in Germany want to elevate Islam to the status of a binding societal order.

The number of Salafists – a group of extremists that live by a particularly strict interpretation of the Islamic faith – are also continuing to rise. Germany security authorities estimated that there are roughly 7,900 salafists in Germany today.

They are ready to use violence and put their ideas into practice. Munch says that their number is growing with their leaders contributing to the radicalization process and the growth of extremism on the fringes of German society.
