From Islamonline, with thanks to Nicolei:
BERLIN – An Islamic affairs expert has called on the Muslim minority in Germany to unite and use their clout to counter discrimination against them.
“When a German Muslim is subjected to racial discrimination in a certain store because of his faith he should immediately report the incident to Muslim leaders in his area,” Mohamed Salem Abdullah, the director of the Islam archive institute in Germany, told IslamOnline.net on Tuesday, April 19.
“Subsequently, this store should by boycotted by all German Muslims to demonstrate their unity and influence,” added the expert.
Abdullah recalled, in this respect, the instrumental role played by German Muslims in the re-election of Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder.
“Some 200,000 German Muslims voted for Schroeder in the latest elections which he won by only 9,000,” he noted.
The Muslim expert added that, acting upon the advice of their leaders, at least 90% of the German Muslims voted for the ruling Socialist Party during the last elections.…
At least 90%. This single-mindedness is what is driving European politicians mad and turning them into dhimmis.
In the latest anti-Muslim incident, Dieter Klinger, a police director in Kohlen, told a recent forum on Islam in the Emden church that Muslims were trying to dominate politics in the country.
He also claimed that mosques were only used to incite violence and promote terrorism.
Well, the problem with that sentence is the word “only.” But it is a fact that mosques have been used to incite violence and promote terrorism. It is a shame that those who dare to speak honestly about this are vilified by Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
Klinger warned that the growing Muslim role in Germany poses a threat to the country’s Christian society.
He triggered uproar among the attendees who dismissed his remarks as an insolence, not only to Islam, but also to Christianity.
Some accused him of inciting intolerance while others left the room in
In a new effort to clear stereotypes and build bridges with non-Muslims, Germany’s biggest mosque recently formed a team to introduce Islam to curious Germans.
The team organizes regular tours for visitors of Fateh mosque in the city of Mannheim, Baden-Wurttemberg, who seek first hand information on Islam.
Similarly, 40 German Muslim youths, aged 18-30, set up a kiosk in central Hamburg on December 21-24, distributing illustrative materials on Islam among attentive and enthusiastic passers-by.
The energetic volunteers used “Muslims Against Terror” as their mantra to reinforce the fact that Islam has nothing to do with
Yes, it’s a fact: Islam has nothing, no-thing, to do with terrorism. It is just a coincidence that virtually every country on the planet has a contingent of people within it who are ready to do violence in the name of Islam. It could just as well be Methodism, you know: a tiny minority of Wesleyan extremists could have held a gun to the Methodist pilot and hijacked the whole Methodist plane, just as easily.
The absurdity of all this is clear. The unfortunate byproduct of this absurdity is that it continues to allow Muslims to avoid confronting the elements of their religion that give rise to violence and terror.
