It looks like you shared an AMP link. These should load faster, but Google's AMP is controversial because of concerns over privacy and the Open Web.

"to stop" doesn't mean has stopped. Besides, the damage is already done.

Yes, but you were speaking in the present tense. You should let people stay updated rather than bringing old sources. Right as of now, it’s only Qatar and Turkey that funds Islamist influence in Europe and the World.

Again, to stop doesn't mean has stopped.

Besides, this is due to Switzerland (a non European country) cracking down on religious investment on their country and SA cleaning their hands by saying they will pass the mosques to another entity. they aren't stopping because of the grace of their heart.

Saudi Arabia has stopped funding Wahhabism since 2018 because of the rise of the new Saudi crown prince MBS. He is a known opposer of his country’s Wahhabi establishment. As a result of MBS’s power and influence, he was able to detain all the Wahhabi Saudi clerics in the country to silence dissent and charge them for extremism. He also launched vast reforms that covers women’s right, removing anti-semitism and misogyny from school education, banning child marriages …etc. Even though Saudi Arabia is modernizing, it still remains despotic and authoritarian, as what that news article show. https://www.wilsoncenter.org/article/saudi-crown-prince-lambasts-his-kingdoms-wahhabi-establishment
