The Dutch military security service (MIVD) is studying Muslim fundamentalism and extremist nationalism in the Balkans, according to a response in parliament by minister of defense Eimert van Middelkoop.
Van Middlekoop says that there are several radical Muslim communities in Bosnia-Herzegovina in remote areas, where supervision by the Bosnian authorities is difficult. But radical Islam is also in Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia, which should be seen as a network of regionally operating organizations.
These organizations strive to apply sharia law. According to MIVD, only a small part use violence. Most network are acting in spreading their ideology through preaching and education.
