The German magazine Der Spiegel recently reported that residents of some tiny, remote villages in the country’s mountainous north obey Sharia law and fly the militant group’s black flag. The villages serve as ‘safe houses’ for radicals who have helped as many as 300 Bosnians join IS in Iraq and Syria — accounting for one of the highest proportions of jihadists from Europe, the magazine wrote.”
