BERLIN – Germany has deported radical Islamic preacher, Nusret C. to Turkey after he called for the obliteration of Jews, Israel and the US, local news reports said.

“The Jews are the worst enemies of Islam,” said Nusret, according to a spokesman of the West German city of Offenbach, where he lived. Nusret rejects equality between men and women and advocates the implementation of Islamic Shari’a law.

The news outlet reported on Tuesday about Nusret’s extradition, which took place on Friday.

Nusret is a leading member of the radical Islamic group Ismail Aga Cemaat. The group is recognized as a threat to Germany’s constitutional democracy and is monitored by the domestic intelligence agency, the Federal Office to Protect the Constitution.

According to the website’s report, security agencies in a number of German states monitored his hate speeches.

Ismail Aga Cemaat has ties to the Turkish European Islamic group Milli Görüs (National Vision). Germany’s intelligence agencies monitor National Vision as a threat to it democratic system.

Nusret’s full name was not published, as German media organizations as matter of practice do not release the last names of criminal defendants, to protect privacy.

Nusret lived in Offenbach , a city of 130,000, since 2011. The administrative court in Kassel rejected his appeal against deportation.

Separately, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has ramped up his campaign for Turkish votes in Germany ahead of a tough electoral contest for his Justice and Development (AK) Party on November 1. An estimated 1.4 million German Turks are eligible to vote in the election.

The party has promised voters in Germany with Turkish citizenship to reduce fees they pay to avoid military service in their homeland from €6,000 to €1,000. Turkish citizens living in Germany are at risk of conscription when they make home visits, if they fail to pay the fee.

The AKP has also promised to reduce passport fees for Turkish citizens living in Germany, and a 20 percent subsidy for those wishing to marry in Turkey, who plan to have children.
