"ULM, Germany — German police stepped up their crackdown on Islamic extremism Wednesday, detaining 22 people during raids of apartments and mosques allegedly used by a network that provided financing and other support to terrorists.

About 700 officers searched dozens of apartments, mosques and call centers in five German states, discovering militant Islamic propaganda and forged passports and visas, authorities said.

The raids capped a long-term investigation of 20 people who allegedly raised money through smuggling and producing false papers to "pursue their ideological goals," said prosecutors in Munich, where authorities coordinated the probe.

The suspects included German citizens and nationals of Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya and Bulgaria, Bavarian state police investigator Gerhard Zintl said. Their ages ranged from 17 to 46, and five of the suspects were female."

This is significant in that the Germany authorities are beginning to see what's going on in their own country.

I worry that this topic will change into a private fight, anyway this proves that Germany will not tolerate terrorists on its territory. I will ask - why doesn't the US succeed so much in eliminating the terrorists on its territory?

It has, you just need to keep an open mind that the United States will protect it's people. Too many people are locked into the conspiracy mentality

And there have been tons of arrests inside the U.S. You won't hear about it until weeks or months later because the U.S. government doesn't want to tip off to the rest of the cells that one of their own has been caught.

The U.S. government is fighting terrorism on its on terms, not the terms of the people who spend their whole day reading news articles.

Good to see them cracking down in Germany. I dont know if you know this but Mohamed atta the leader of the 9-11 group was not radicalized in his home country of Egypt but in Hamburg, Germany.

The Hamburg radical Muslim scene made him into a extremist
