A radical form of Islam is spreading in Belgium, to the detriment of moderate Islam.
This emerges from a new report by the Coordination Unit for Threat Analysis (known as OCAM). The Mediahuis group newspapers echo this today (Wednesday).
OCAM warns, in its most recent report, of the influence of Salafism in Belgium and Europe, "An increasing number of mosques and Islamic centres in Belgium are controlled by Wahhabism. This is the Salafist missionary apparatus."
Wahhabism is a radical current of Sunni Islam promoted by Saudi Arabia. It advocates a return to the original "purity" of Islam.
