Hizb ut-Tahrir in Spain: Jihad OnlineTopics: Eurabia, Internet, Islam And The War On Terror
According to the reports gathered by El Confidencial Digital, the Mossos d'Esquadra are investigating the Sunni Islamist organization named Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami (HuT) -or Party for the Islamic Liberation-. The number of Islamist groups of this kind is rising on the Internet, and using the WWW to gain supporters, that could be even recruited by the radical Islamism.
HuT was born in Jerusalem in 1953 founded by the Palestinian Taqiuddin al-Nabhani. They are supporters of an Islamic macroState or Caliphate formed by all the countries whose citizens are, mostly, Muslims. Its supporters reject Western democracy and pretend as a final goal, that the whole world is converted to Islam. The organization has never condemned explicitly any of the terrorist attacks of a Jihadist origin.
In Spain, this Islamist group began its activity during the period 2004-2005 and, in Feb. 2006, when the Mohammen cartoon crisis was happenning, HuT raises its activity and presence both physical and in Internet.
"Fortunately, the presence of HuT in Spain is very little, except in Cataluña. But [...] range of their activities in the period 2010-2020, with 2 or 3 millions of Muslims in Spain, and with some sectors of them very receptive to their message, after the work which are doing in Spanish communities, groups like Yama'a al-Tabligh o Justicia y Espiritualidad, work which presumably will have a broader range in that period".
