German Citizens Abdul And Mohamed May Know Someone Who Knows Someone Who Knows Something About A “Serious Theft” That Has Taken Place

Somewhere.

Theft

Of course, they may not know either. Hard to say. And we don’t want to jump to any conclusions here just because they are German citizens.

German police said they arrested three men Tuesday morning and are looking for two additional suspects who they believe stole around 100 royal jewels and ornaments from a museum vault in Dresden Castle last November, as about 1,600 officers are continuing to search for the stolen items and evidence.

Officials said three unnamed German citizens in their twenties were arrested in Berlin and a search warrant has been issued for the two other suspects, Abdul Majed Remmo and Mohamed Remmo, who are also in their twenties.

“Germany’s imams seen as key in combating radicalization.” Right.

Immam

Although “Imam training is in the spotlight of this year’s German Islam Conference. In light of recent terror attacks, Germany’s interior minister said a new training program for German-speaking imams was “money well-spent,” those in the know have something else to report. This may be what German politicians want the German public to believe but don’t ask what Islam critic Hamed Abdel-Samad (Muslim himself) has to say about the “show.”

He has been trying for ten years to make progress addressing issues within this so-called German Islam Conference, particularly those regarding the radicalization of youth and the condition of women, but has repeatedly witnessed how precisely these issues are successfully removed from the agenda – and how its German supporters (and tax payers who finance it) do absolutely nothing about it. Now he has resigned in disgust.

Just in case you were wondering, Hamed Abdel-Samad needs bodyguards – here in Germany – and has needed them for years.

„Doch seit dieser Zeit konnten die Islamverbände alle kritischen Themen, die die kritischen Stimmen auf den Tisch gebracht haben, wie etwa das Thema Radikalisierung von jungen Muslimen oder die Stellung der Frau, aus der Tagesordnung verbannen.“

Do You Want Total Tolerance?

Actually, no. Not even in Germany.

Hand

Man denied German citizenship for refusing to shake woman’s hand – The man aced the German naturalization test, but refused to shake hands with the female official handing over his citizenship.

You get one guess which rich cultural background this guy had. Wow. You got that one on the very first try!

“Complete Neutrality Outweighs Religious Freedom”

Uh-oh. The Brain Police let this one get through. We’re going to get letters.

Scarves

Muslim law clerks CAN be ordered to remove head scarfs in court because ‘complete neutrality’ outweighs religious freedom, German judges rule – Judges in Germany have told a Muslim law clerk that she can be prevented from wearing a head scarf during court proceedings.

Germany’s highest bench, the Federal Constitutional Court, ruled that the judiciary’s obligation to complete neutrality outweighed her freedom of religion rights…

Civil servants and police officers have already been banned from wearing the niqab, burka or hijab or any religious symbol, but this has not previously extended to members of the public.

Where’s The Pork?

German oddity 415. The pig is big here. Germans have more pig and sow idioms then wurst varieties – and that’s a whole lot. They also seem to think that any phrase or saying can be improved just by adding the words pig or sow to it, thus making said phrase or saying saugut (sow good or damned fine).

Pork

So what about this German oddity in the news today? After a German day care center in Leipzig decided not to offer pork on its meal plan anymore (gee, I wonder why?) threats started coming in. The police have now decided to guard the place.

And after BILD decided to report about the day care center’s decision the hashtag #Schweinefleisch (pork) reached the number one spot in Germany.

German Of The Day: Mundtot Machen

That means to make “mouth-dead,” as in to silence someone.

Brain Police

Groupthink requires individuals to avoid raising controversial issues or alternative solutions, and there is loss of individual creativity, uniqueness and independent thinking.”

On its third try, Germany’s center-left Social Democrats (SPD) will be able to kick controversial anti-Islam author Thilo Sarrazinfrom its ranks, an arbitration court ruled on Thursday. The former Berlin senator intends to appeal the ruling.ConCo

“We will try to take the case to all stages of the state and the federal arbitration court of the SPD and, beyond that, if necessary, all the ordinary civil instances of the district court of Berlin, the Court of Appeals and Federal Supreme Court, then the Federal Constitutional Court,” defense lawyer Andreas Köhler said. “In the meantime Dr. Sarrazin will continue to be an astute and attentive member of the SPD.”

Who are the Brain Police?

Organized Criminals Of Mohammed

Or “Warriors of Mohammed,” if you prefer.

Warrior

Get your motors running or something. Here come Al-Salam-313.

German police launch raids on Iraqi organized crime gang – Heavily armed police have carried out a series of coordinated raids on the homes of members of the “Al-Salam-313” group. The targets are suspected of people smuggling as well as dealing in narcotics…

The gang members are part of the Shiite denomination who believe that the hidden Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi will return to earth with 313 companions. The term Mahdi means Redeemer, which therefore means that he is regarded as similar to a messiah in Islam.

“This is why they refer to themselves as Muhammad’s companions or warriors.”

“Why The Name Mohammed Is So Popular”

In Germany. In Berlin, in particular. That’s the title of this article down here.

Name

I didn’t bother to read it. I’m pretty sure I know why that is and I don’t need a journalist explain to me why I’m wrong.

Mohammed is the most popular name for baby boys in Berlin… Bild, a German newspaper, reported data from the Gesellschaft für deutsche Sprache (GfdS), or German Language Society.

Mohammed in all its variants was the most popular name in Berlin, and the second most popular in Bremen, ahead of Ben but behind Elias.

Dass Mohammed in Berlin erstmals auf Platz eins der Vornamen-Hitliste steht, sorgt für Aufregung. Aber warum eigentlich?

Well, We Certainly Don’t Want To Spark Controversy

Do we? German conference on Islamic veil sparks controversy.

Veils

The Islamic veil – Symbol of dignity or oppression? I’m going to go out on the limb here, folks. I’m going with oppression. Just sayin’.

Islamic veils are a hot topic in Germany, particularly due to a growing Muslim population. Now, outcry over an academic conference on the issue has surprised even its organizer, who says freedom of speech is at stake…

Germany’s Muslim population, which has rapidly increased in recent years due to immigration from Muslim-majority countries, was estimated at between 4.4 and 4.7 million people or approximately 5.5% of the country’s total population in 2015, according to the Federal Statistical Office. The number is doubtless higher now, according to the agency, but updated official figures exist.

With these demographic changes come societal debates — one of which, that of the Islamic veil, has been a continual source of discussion. The latest veil controversy, which made headlines all across Germany, has occurred over a planned academic conference — something that even its organizer did not expect.

“Dissenting opinions must be respected and tolerated.” Must they? For how much longer?

No Parallel Society Here

Not yet anyway.

Kindergarden

But if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.

Germany: Muslim kindergarten loses appeal against closure – State officials had ordered “Al Nur” to close following revelations that inappropriate literature had been shared at the kindergarten. The day care center is the only Muslim kindergarten in Rhineland-Palatinate…

The state’s decision to revoke Al Nur kindergarten’s license was lawful because evidence showed links between the school’s administrators and the extremist Salafist ideology, an administrative court in the city of Mainz said. The court said the links made it difficult for children at Al Nur to integrate into German society and compromised their independence.

“Efforts by Arab Nil-Rhein, the association that runs the kindergarten, to distance itself from Salafist thought were not convincing.”
