If they are Sufi they should remind you more of a Quaker than a Jihadi and ought probably to have some serious connections with Morocco and the areas immediately appertaining to that country.That doesn't mean they're all Moroccans but the history of the movement is pretty well tied up in Morocco.

Worth remembering Morocco and Spain have been over the last millenium ruled as a single country, either by Moslems, or by Christians, or by a combination of both. Currently they are separate countries.

If I’m not mistaken, Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the Egyptian Moslem Brotherhood and his people were all Sufis. In fact, other Salafists would refer to them as Dervishes. Also, Andrew Bostom has stated that Sufism in India was just as capable of being as militant and intolerant as any other type of Islam:
