Ahmadiyya Muslims are peaceful but its spokesmen are often some of the most arrogant, mean-spirited, and obnoxious of all Muslim spokesmen — and that’s a field crowded with imperious and condescending individuals: think Qasim Rashid, Harris Zafar, and Kashif Chaudhry. Here in Rüdesheim they arrogantly intruded upon a Christmas market, setting up an information booth about Islam there, claiming a privilege that would never be granted to Christians in any Muslim country — and even in a non-Muslim country, no Muslim group, even the Ahmadiyya, would allow Christians to set up an information booth about Christianity at any Islamic event of any kind. Ahmadiyya are non-violent, but apparently nonetheless unmistakably Islamic supremacist.
The mayor of Rüdesheim lamented: “I am absolutely amazed there is so much intolerance.” He meant the people who asked the Ahmadis to disassemble their information booth. He should have meant the Ahmadis.
“Outrage as Islam Info Stall Established at Town’s Christmas Market,” by Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, December 1, 2016:
A Muslim group in Germany has been asked to voluntarily disassemble their information stand at a local Christmas market after a significant number of complaints about their presence were lodged at the local town hall.
Best known for mulled wine, beer by the stein, and pork sausages, the typical German Christmas market may not seem like the obvious place to establish a Muslim information booth. Yet in the picturesque tourist-friendly town of Rüdesheim on the Rhine the traditional association of Christmas markets with Christianity has been challenged.
Some locals have expressed their concern at the presence of the stall, while others yet have expressed their concern at their neighbours who object to the Islam and Pakistan information booth. While the town hall has no power to require the stall to be closed down, following the complaints and meetings with local police it has been decided the stand may constitute a security risk.
Members of the Ahmadiyya Islamic community who established the information booth at the market, and are generally considered heretical and made the target of persecution by mainstream Muslims who object to their liberal interpretation of the Koran, were invited at the weekend to visit the town hall. Local paper the Wiesbadener Tagblatt reports they were asked to voluntarily remove themselves from the market.
The paper reports the remarks of one local who said of the Islam information stand: “This does not belong at a Christmas market!”
The mayor of Rüdesheim, who made the invitation to the Muslim group to leave, said he had done so because he believed there was a “potential of danger” posed by “violent public reactions” to the presence at the Christmas market. The negative reaction by locals was one he clearly did not share, telling the paper: “I am absolutely amazed there is so much intolerance.”…
