Muslim Biker Gangs Now
16:58. | Posted by Cheradenine Zakalwe. .
Biker gangs tend to be associated in the public mind with White Power-style racial exclusivity. The Muslims are now enriching us with an alternative perspective. In Germany, the Muslim biker gang phenomenon has been making headlines as sedate German suburbs are terrorised by the sound and violence associated with a group known as "the Mongols".
Although it claims to be ethnically diverse, all the indications are that it is Lebanese-led and Muslim-dominated. Police sources say its leadership consists of high-grade, violent criminals. In Bremen, a few months ago, the Mongols were involved in open street warfare with their rivals the Hell's Angels. A new chapter of their organisation has just been opened in the city of Kiel, something that has left the local residents less than enchanted.
