Stefan Meining, former Wilson Center public policy scholar and editor of Bayerischer Rundfunk, Bavaria's Public Broadcasting Service will discuss his latest book entitled A Mosque in Germany: Nazis, Intelligence Services and the Rise of Political Islam in the West which sheds new light on the history of the Islamic scene in Germany and how it was systematically nurtured by the intelligence services. A Mosque in Germany is based mainly on Meining's research for his documentary film, which was televised by the German public television broadcaster ARD in 2006 sketching the rise of political Islam in the West.
