So you see, trying to stop jihad will just lead to more jihad. The best thing to do is just surrender.
The Islamic Community needn’t worry, anyway. Austria’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Integration Sebastian Kurz says: “We want an Austrian form of Islam. Every Muslim in Austria should be able to practise his religion properly, but we don’t want influence and control from abroad.” He will eventually discover that the problem isn’t precisely foreign influence, but precepts of the Qur’an and Sunnah — ones that are likely to be taught in any “Austrian form of Islam” as much as they’re taught by non-Austrian Muslims.
“Austria’s Muslims fear changes to historic Islam law,” by Bethany Bell, BBC News, November 3, 2014:
A row has broken out in Austria over government plans to overhaul the country’s century-old law on Islam.
The new draft, which is partly aimed at tackling Islamist radicalism, forbids any foreign funding. But Austria’s official Islamic Community says it reflects a widespread mistrust of Muslims and fails to treat them equally.
Islam has been an official religion in Austria since 1912. The Islam law, the “Islamgesetz”, was brought in by the Habsburg Emperor Franz Joseph, after Austria’s annexation of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Under the law, Muslims, like Catholics, Jews and Protestants, are guaranteed wide-ranging rights, including religious education in state schools.
Carla Amina Baghajati from the Islamic Community says the old law has served as “a kind of a model in Europe” and done much to integrate and anchor Muslims into Austrian society.
It shows how recognition of Islam makes Muslims feel accepted, she says. “Their loyalty towards the state comes automatically.”
Roughly half a million Muslims live in Austria today, around 6% of the population. Many of them have Turkish or Bosnian roots.
After more than 100 years, most agree that the Islam law needs to be updated to reflect the realities of modern Austria.
But some parts of the government’s draft legislation have caused controversy, in particular a proposed ban on any foreign funding for mosques or imams.
The Islamic Community says that does not fit with the principle of equality.
But Austria’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Integration Sebastian Kurz told Austrian Radio (ORF) that the ban was a necessary step.
“With other religions, there is not the challenge that we have to fear influences from abroad and therefore have to be stricter with financing,” he said.
“We want an Austrian form of Islam. Every Muslim in Austria should be able to practise his religion properly, but we don’t want influence and control from abroad.”…
At a Freedom Party Oktoberfest, Vienna district councillor Helwig Leibinger said many Muslims in Vienna were too foreign.
“They cannot be integrated very well, because the women wear the burka or something like that and they don’t want to be real Austrians. They try to be Turkish.”
