In an article referring to the takfiri groups’ vast preparations to enter the Islamic countries in northern Africa, the Khobar Algerian newspaper announced the risk of extremist salafis influence on the cabinet and the sovereignty refraining to use force in dealing with any extremism.

According to the Nile Net Online website, repeating the threat of Wahhabi leader in Algeria, Sheikh Hamdash having asserted: If it was up to me, I would open the Isis embassy in Algeria this article links the Black Decade’s events in Algeria to spreading Wahhabism.

In the late 90s also known as the Black Decade, salafis stipulated conditions to give up fighting against the government and its security forces one of which was transferring mosques to Wahhabi ulama and scholars and the government was forced to implement this requirement. Now extremists reign mosques and the government does nothing against them.
