Tyskland: Et parallelt muslimsk univers

Germany’s Muslim population is becoming more religious and more conservative. Islamic associations are fostering the trend, particularly through their work with the young — accelerating the drift towards a parallel Muslim society.

Surveys in the country have charted a significant increase in fundamentalist attitudes, particularly among younger Muslims. The experiences of Ekin Deligöz, a member of the German parliament representing the Green Party, underscore the potential dangers. Having called on Muslim women to remove their headscarves, Deligöz faced death threats and now receives police protection.

Under the guise of religious tolerance, German society stood blithely by as some parts of its Muslim communities began turning into parallel societies. For years, the country’s courts have been excusing Muslim girls from coed swimming lessons and class outings – citing the most absurd reasons for their rulings.

Today the impact of Islamist indoctrination is noticeable at almost all schools with a high proportion of Muslim pupils. Although a few courts have reevaluated their position in the meantime and ruled in favor of compulsory school attendance – as, for example, in Hamburg during 2005 – teachers are complaining that fewer and fewer Muslim pupils are taking part in swimming, sports in general, or school trips.

School is one of the few places where young Muslims come into contact with the non-Islamic environment. As a result, the teachers often see what is happening most clearly. Dietmar Pagel, principal of the Hector-Peterson High School in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin, actively seeks dialog with his students. But with increasing frequency, he and his colleagues feel they are banging their heads against a brick wall.

“Lots of our adolescents have a fundamentalist outlook on life,” he says. Many more girls are wearing headscarves, and almost all the Muslim students fasted during the major Islamic holidays, with catastrophic consequences for their performance at school. “The further we get into Ramadan, the more distracted the pupils become.”

He cannot get through to his pupils any more, Pagel complains.

“If I say that headscarves are worn less in Turkey than here, they simply counter: ‘That’s why we came to Germany, so that we can openly practice our religion.'” And sometimes they simply remind him that – as a non-Muslim – he would be better off keeping such views to himself.

Police fear a decision by the British National Party to put patrols on the streets of Calne will add to the town’s problem with yobs (*).

The BNP claims it will have patrols working by the end of the week and they will help to stamp out problems with gangs and attacks.

BNP member Robert Baggs said:

“Of course the patrols are set to combat anti-social behaviour in the town mostly but we can’t let people worry about stepping out into their own street.

“The only way we can prevent things like this happening is with regular patrols on the street and as the police are not providing that service, we will.

“We tend to ask ex-service personnel to volunteer because they already have the discipline to do the job well.”

EU Kommissionen har udarbejdet retningslinjer for, hvordan politikere bør – og ikke bør – udtale sig om islam og terrorisme.

Europæiske politikere bør undgå ord som jihad, fundamentalistisk og islamisk, når talen falder på terrorisme.

Det mener i hvert fald EU Kommissionen, der har udarbejdet en række retningslinjer for, hvordan politikere og embedsmænd bør – og ikke bør – omtale islam og terrorisme.

Ifølge nogle af de embedsmænd, der har arbejdet med retningslinjerne, er der i øjeblikket stor sandsynlighed for misforståelser. For de fleste europæere betyder et ord som ‘jihad’ hellig krig. Men for mange muslimer er ‘jihad’ lig med en indre kamp for at blive så god en muslim som muligt.

Et af kommissionens foreslag lyder derfor, at man i stedet for at sige ‘islamiske terrorister’ bør sige ‘terrorister, der påkalder sig islam på en udnyttende måde’.

Men ifølge det danske medlem af Europaparlamentet Mogens Camre (DF) er de nye retningslinjer det rene pjat.

Sidste nyt fra EAD, der ikke kan betegnes som andet end lavpandet humor. Tror embedsmændene i EU-kommissionen, som end ikke er demokratisk valgt, at de kan diktere, hvad politikere skal sige og mene.

Alene deres definition af jihad – har de haft Jørgen Bæk Simonsen med som konsulent? Den ville være gået for et par år siden – men ikke længere. Alle ved, at historien om jihad som en indre kamp er ren ønsketænkning.

Man kan igen citere en kendt araber: Chefredaktøren for TV-stationen Al-Arabiyya:

Ikke alle muslimer er terrorister men
næsten alle terrorister er muslimer.

Videnskabeligt bevist: jøder er klogere end muslimer

IQ-ekspert giver de historiske bud på, hvorfor jøderne i dag snupper Nobelpriserne.

Fænomenet er virkelig iøjnespringende. En gennemgang af New Yorks skolevæsens IQ-test viser for året 1954, at 28 elever ramte det tårnhøje 170-mærke. De 24 var jøder.

Her er DR absolut ikke bange for at nævne etnicitet

For vi har en sag med udlændinge på den helt rigtige side af offerrollen.

Embedslægen skal nu undersøge en højgravid tyrkisk kvindes tragiske dødsfald i går.

Udlændinge får altid forskellig behandling. Det er, lige som om vi er andenklasses mennesker, siger onklen til TV Avisen.

Den kritik afvises imidlertid af Jens Jørgen Kjer, der er ledende overlæge på Gynækologisk Afdeling på Glostrup Hospital.

Ja hvorfor skulle det have betydning? Hun har vel fået lige så dårlig behandling som alle andre.
