But…but…I thought that the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims utterly repudiated the Tiny Minority of Extremists! “German Islamic leaders may quit integration conference,” from Deutsche Presse Agentur, March 12:
Cologne – Islamic leaders in Germany debated on Friday whether to suspend their involvement in a government-sponsored forum on German-Islamic integration, after a fundamentalist Islamic group had been excluded.
Four leading Islamic organizations, representing religious groups and secular Muslims, threatened to leave the German-Islam Conference after the Interior Ministry excluded the Council of Islam, dominated by the international Milli Gorus movement.
The ministry had ruled that legal investigations into the activities of Milli Gorus, viewed by officials as the largest Islamist organization on German soil, could overshadow the conference, set up to address Muslim integration issues….
Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said he was happy to take the groups’ concerns on board.
‘Subjects such as racism and Islamophobia can certainly find a place,’ Maiziere told German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung in reference to the reorganized German-Islam Conference.
But of course!
