According to Al-Jazeera, in the German state of southwest state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, “authorities have agreed for the first time to ban women teachers from wearing a Muslim headscarf in school, although Christian and Jewish attire will be allowed.”
In an Orwellian touch, “the Central Council of Muslims said that if it was passed, the bill ‘would hinder integration’ . . .” Wouldn’t it be more likely to encourage the integration of the German Muslim community into the wider culture?
Explained state premier Erwin Teufel: “The aim of the law is to forbid state teachers from wearing symbols which could be regarded as political.” He and another official “defended the decision not to include Christian or Jewish symbols in the ban, saying the state constitution placed Christian and Western values and culture at the heart of the education system.”
It’s astonishing to see anyone in sclerotic, dhimmi Europe actually assert that Europe has any connection to “Christian and Western values and culture.” I’m confident that the Muslim groups that are protesting this have no trouble insisting on the unique Muslim identity of other nations where “Christian and Jewish attire” is most definitely unwelcome. Try, for example, to wear a cross in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Even possession of a cross can earn you the wrath of the religious police. After all, the Prophet Muhammad said: “I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslims” (Sahih Muslim, book 19, no. 4366).
