Netherlands: Schools investigated for brainwashing

The AIVD is investigating possible brainwashing of young kids in a number of Muslim elementary schools. The schools are connected to radical mosques.

This happens outside the regular school periods and next to the official curriculum, during special religion and Arabic language classes. A spokesperson for the intelligence service confirmed the investigation but refused further comment.

The strong anti-Western slant is drilled in from a young age at schools connected to contested mosques such as El Tawheed (Amsterdam) and al-Fourkaan (Eindhoven). According to the AIVD there's been talk already for a number of years of "classes to transmit radical-Islamic ideas".
