* Mohamed  Benshain lives in Bonn Bad Godesberg, where he runs his own publishing house and organizes the notorious Salafist Islam seminars, which also feature the other Salafist preachers of the ‘Einladung  zum Paradies’ – EZP network. Joint events are usually filmed and documented in numerous video clips online. These seminars have become increasingly popular in recent years and are attended by up to 500 participants. The Office for the Protection of the Constitution LfV, the loval security service believes that Mohamed Benshain is one middleman between radical Salafists in Germany and militant Jihadists abroad, who helps facilitate recruitment and transport of German Muslims to the training camps of Al Qaeda and the -IJU.

 This allegation is corroborated by the fact that Mohamed  Benshain knew the militant Jihadist Eric Breininger as well as Abdirazak B., who had tried to join his friend Bekkay Harrach in Pakistan but was stopped by the police on 09/26/2008.  Mohamed Benhsain’s Islam seminars were also attended by Attila Selek and Adem Yilmaz, who were part of the Sauerland Cell as well as Germany’s first suicide bomber, Cuneyit Ciftci, and of course Bekkay Harrach, who had even given lectures at those seminars.

One of the basic readings at the regular events is the book “Aqeedah Ahlu Sunnah wal Jamaa “ (doctrine of the Sunni community) authored by the Saudi scholar Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Saleh al-Uthaymeen.

Mohamed  Benshain translated the book from Arabic into German. One passage explicitly calls all followers of other faiths unbelievers. It remains dubious if only apostates shall be reprimanded and, if intransigent, killed or if all non-Muslims, including Jews and Christians, are considered apostates and ipso facto to be put to death

According to media reports, in 02/2011, the Public Prosecution Office Munich has opened legal proceedings against ten individuals, which punishes formation, membership and support of a criminal organization. The accused include Mohamed  Benshain, Dr. Hassan Dabbagh and Reda Seyam, who after his Jihadist globe-trotting is now producing video documentation of diverse Salafist events in Germany.
