Anti-dhimmitude in Germany. From Deutsche Welle, with thanks to Cathy J. Palmer:
Invoking new anti-hate legislation, a Berlin court ruled Wednesday that a well-known Turkish religious leader accused of preaching hatred should be extradited to Turkey.
The administrative court in Berlin accused 59-year-old Yacub Tadshi of asking for God’s protection for suicide bombers in Israel and Iraq during a rally in the city center in 2004.
That same year, the Muslim preacher of Turkish origin who has lived in Berlin since 1971 used the occasion of an early Ramadan prayer to lash out against native Germans in his Mevlana mosque in Kreuzberg. Tadshi said Germans could only expect the flames of hell for their weird beliefs.
German public TV correspondent Reinhard Laska filmed the Imam’s address.
“We were able to show how the Imam insulted all Germans in his Berlin mosque,” he said. “He repeatedly said that all Germans were stinking people and doomed to go to hell because they were useless creatures and infidels. His words were all the more shocking as shortly before, the press spokesman of this mosque had told us about the Turks’ strong interest in fostering good relations with native Germans. He said it was so important for people of different faiths to share views and live together peacefully – what a lie that turned out to be!”…
A lie? From the press spokesman of a mosque? We’re shocked, shocked to hear of such a thing!
