The "Mullah Ibrahim" group was founded by Mohammed Mahmoud, known as "Abu Osama al-Gharib", born in Austria.

Banned “Mullah Ibrahim" group
In 2012, with hated of hatred and contradiction with the principles of the democratic constitution, the German police announced the banning of the "Mullah Ibrahim" group.
According to the Federal Constitutional Protection Service of Germany (PSD), most of the members of the "Mullah Ibrahim" group moved from Germany to Egypt under the Muslim Brotherhood to exercise their freedom more freely.
The Federal Constitutional Protection Service in Germany accuses the Mullah Ibrahim group of recruiting at least six young men to fight alongside a preacher in Syria and Iraq.
"Rap singer" in the group
The German rapper Dennis Cousbert, known as "Desau Dog", was born on October 18, 1987, in a suburb of Berlin, to a father from Ghana. He converted to Islam in 2007 and announced his retirement in 2010.
Couspert, an organization in Germany focused on the jihadist propaganda of the Mullah Ibrahim group, was married to Daniela Green, a translator commissioned by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to spy on him, but this marriage did not last long.
According to US media, Green realized within weeks of her marriage to Couspert that she had made a mistake in returning to the United States, where she was arrested upon arrival and sentenced to two years in federal prison for making false statements about her husband's international terrorism.
In the summer of 2016, she was released and the BBC reported in 2017 that she was working as a "hostess in a hotel."
Other groups despite banned
Not only did the hardline activity of the "Abrahamic" group stand by its members, but other groups, including the "victory and unification" and the "German unification," groups that were also banned by Germany, also emerged.
In a press release quoted by Reuters in March 2015, the German Interior Ministry banned the Nasra and Tawhid group, saying: "The group that emerged from the extremist group of Mullah Ibrahim, banned by the authorities in 2012, glorifies the violent jihad of terrorist organizations, Such as what is being done by an organization in Syria and Iraq.”
The German Interior Ministry said the Nasra and Tawhid group was using various websites and other information platforms to urge Muslims to fight against German democracy.
Former German Interior Minister Thomas de Mezier told a news conference that "The ban imposed on militant groups sends a clear signal to the hardline jihadist arena, and we are taking decisive and permanent action against efforts that are against our constitutional system,"
According to the German Interior Ministry, leading figures in the "Mullah Ibrahim" group have continued their unconstitutional activities under the name of Tawhid in Germany, and authorities have asked Internet service providers to delete the group's material from its services.
Germany is facing an increase in the number of terrorist attacks, but it is also campaigning against mosques frequented by suspected extremist ideology, as the Salafist jihadist movement grows on its soil.
In 2017, the number of terrorist attacks in Europe rose to 205, compared to 142 in 2016, according to Europol's annual report.
Salafi Jihadism, the most widespread group in Germany, and with the doubling of the number of those belonging to this trend, the German security authorities are doubly concerned about this, which poses a threat to the security of the country.
In a report issued at the end of last year 2017, the German Commission for the Protection of the Constitution (Internal Intelligence) said that the number of salafists in Germany has risen to 10.8 thousand Salafis by about 500 in just three months (in September 2017) Nine thousand and seven hundred at the end of 2016.
"The Salafist scene is divided into separate groups, which are difficult to monitor, and extremism is less common in mosques, or in mosques," said Hans-Georg Masn, head of the German body for the protection of the constitution. Organizations that extend beyond borders, but are more widespread in narrow circles formed over the Internet, in addition to the formation of networks Salafist women are difficult to penetrate by the intelligence services ».
German authorities believe Salafists are not all ready for violence, but are under pressure from extremists who use mosques to attract young people and spread extremism, such as the security-closed Al-Nour mosque in Berlin.
