Muslim leaders criticized on Saturday the agenda of the German Islamic Conference taking place next week. They do not want terrorism as a key subject, nor should Islam critics attend, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.
They are also unhappy that the entire agenda has been drafted by the interior ministry. The event, which debuted in 2006 with the proposed aim of promoting dialogue between the government and Muslim communities, has witnessed a loss of support over stalled talks and lack of progress.
Erol Pürlü of the Association of Islamic Cultural Centres (VIKZ) which says it represents 300 Muslim communities nationwide, told the Süddeutsche Zeitung that amid growing dissent from Muslims, the meeting was inappropriate.
The conference only makes sense as a dialogue with Muslim religious communities, Pürlü told the paper. Though the organisation has accepted its invitation to attend, Pürlü made it clear that expectations were low.
Kenan Kolat, chairman of Germanys Association of Turkish Communities (TGD), voiced similar dissent. In its current form, it no longer has any purpose, he said.
The conference was established by then-interior minister Wolfgang Schäuble in 2006 to improve the working relationship between the government and Muslim communities.
Topics discussed at subsequent meetings have included plans to put Islam on an equal footing with the Church, as well as Muslim religious education and the construction of mosques. In recent times however there seems to have been a shift towards issues of security.
In the past two years several prominent Muslim organisations have pulled out of the talks.
Aiman Mazyek, chairman of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany said the conference needed an overhaul. And Ali Kizilkaya, chairman of the Islamic Council of Germany described it as a train travelling in the wrong direction.
All those empty cathedrals in Europe will be filled with Muslims when they become mosques. Who will be to blame?
The Germans will soon figure out what to do with muzzies.
Topics discussed at subsequent meetings have included plans to put Islam on an equal footing with the Church, as well as Muslim religious education and the construction of mosques.
The cult of death doesn’t want to be equal with the church, they want to destroy the church. A murderous cult will never be equal. As for more mosques, they hide behind its doors and radicalize people and will not allow infidels inside. Since it is their cult creating chaos, murder and destruction worldwide the mosques should be entered and inspected. If they don’t like it they can go back to the third world rat hole they came from.
Actions speak louder than words.
The discussion has been dragging on too long. The Germans need to come up with a final solution for this problem.
Not gonna happen. After losing two world wars, Germans have been through three generations of Socialist and p.c. indoctrination. Teaming up with Turkey in WWI was a bad decision that had terrible consequences in the long run. Thus their current Turkish Muslim problem.
What will they talk about if not terrorism?
