Germany: Major raid against Muslim hawala banking

In a nationwide raid against Muslim hawala banking in Germany, around 1400 police officers were on duty on Wednesday morning. They searched 81 residential and commercial properties in 25 cities in Lower Saxony, Bremen and North Rhine-Westphalia and executed ten arrest warrants.

    The 67 suspects, mostly from Syria, including two “Islamic threats”, are accused of secretly moving around 100 million euros from criminal activities – including drug trafficking – to Syria and Turkey. For the most part, the accused wanted to enrich themselves personally. Some of the money may also have flowed into terrorist milieus, the investigators said.

    While the raid itself is widely discussed in the German mass media, many journalists keep silent about the organized Muslim background of the action. In most of the reports, the term “hawala banking”, ie the actual target object of the entire operation, does not appear at all. Most of the reports cross the line to open disinformation.

    An exception was made by Deutsche Welle, which has apparently thoroughly researched the background of the large-scale action by the police and tax investigators and even explains the hawala banking system:

    “The hawala system is widespread in Muslim countries. Customers can transfer cash abroad for a comparatively low commission (one to two percent). The system, which has existed for centuries and has its roots in the Middle East, is based on the personal trust of those involved, who often belong to the same ethnic group and have developed in regions with an underdeveloped banking system, according to an analysis by the Federal Ministry of Finance (…) from the year 2019. It allows ‘money to be transferred almost without any possibility of tracing’. The ministry estimates that around 200 billion dollars flow through hawala systems worldwide every year.”

      Let’s see if there are raids in other German states, or in other western European countries. Since the economy of the many no-go zones (i.e., Muslim enclaves) in the urban areas of western Europe depend on wefare, often fraudlent, and organized crime, those who run the no-go zones rely on a system that hides the transfer of large sums of money and leaves no ‘paper trail’, or an electronic one. Such untraceable transfers of large sums would appear to be common, between Europe and the countries of origin of crime bosses, jihadists, and other criminal elements that commonly work in the no-go zones. In addition to being so useful for drug trafficking, the rackets, and street crime at every level, it seems also tailor-made for jihadism and other forms of terrorism.

      Is this really about criminal activity, or is it the Islamic system of banking, which forbids usury, the real reason?
