From The Gathering Storm
Jesus once answered a question from his followers that asked how a rich man might get into heaven. He responded, â€œIt is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.â€ In the case of Europe today, the EU is socialist heaven, the camel are Muslims and the eye of the needle is Euro-Islam â€“ the integration of Muslims into European society.
One of the many jihads – cultural jihad – continues. The end result has the multiculturalists twisting in the wind for some Muslim leaders in Germany are not buying it.
A leading German Muslim official on Wednesday lashed out at efforts to force the integration of Germanyâ€™s 3.5 million Muslims. “You canâ€™t demand integration and it cannot be imposed by the state. The readiness for integration must come from within Muslims,” said the Chairman of Annemarie Schimmel Forum Mohammad Aman H. Hobohm during his opening address to a conference titled â€™Religion and Integrationâ€™ in Berlin.
But are they willing to integrate? Or are they creating a Parallel Muslin Universe?
According to Spiegel Magazine â€œGermanyâ€™s Muslim population is becoming more religious and more conservative. Islamic associations are fostering the trend, particularly through their work with the young â€” accelerating the drift towards a parallel Muslim society.â€
Itâ€™s the silence that visitors notice first. No childrenâ€™s laughter, no chatter, no pop music. A Protestant minister familiar with the noise level in childrenâ€™s homes describes the atmosphere as â€œvery spooky.â€ This Friday, at the end of Ramadan, it is especially hushed in the green house on Hochfeldstrasse in Duisburg, a city near DÃ¼sseldorf. Quietly, the boys remove their jackets from the cloakroomâ€™s numbered hooks – many are heading home for the holiday. The blankets are meticulously folded in the dormitories. Toys and posters are nowhere to be seen.
Run by the Association of Islamic Cultural Centers, known by its German acronym VIKZ, the home houses 38 Muslim adolescents between the ages of 12 and 19. They attend state schools in the morning, but otherwise live and learn in the green house. They get help with their homework between 3 and 6 in the afternoon and eat supper at 7. The rest of the day, according to the timetable, they are free to do what they want. Their parents contribute 150 euros a month; the rest is financed by donations.
The residents are not typical of children raised in institutional settings who often come from dysfunctional backgrounds. Most of these boarders are growing up in intact family units. Officially they are here first and foremost to improve their performance at school. â€œThe VIKZ homes improve their educational prospects,â€ says the organizationâ€™s legal counsel, Ersoy Sam, â€œand hence their prospects of leading successful lives in Germany.â€
Nonetheless, German academics and youth experts have warned that this type of group is widening the gulf between Muslims and the rest of society.
Is the Muslim community entirely responsible for this widening gulf? Or are there other partners crime?
Disturbing as this trend may be, it cannot be pinned exclusively on Muslim groups. 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.
What we have here is the end result of multiculturalism combined with dhimmitude – the fertilization of the soil for the seeds of a balkanized society.
A junior-high school teacher from North Rhine-Westphalia, whose school is in the catchment area of an unofficial VIKZ home, has been observing the situation for years. She witnessed how the pupils suddenly adopted “extremely anti-Semitic and anti-American attitudes.” English was seen as the enemy’s language. “Today, some of them refuse to speak it at all, even if it means failing their exams.” They reject the theory of evolution in biology lessons, the age of the Earth as discussed in geography, and anything remotely satirical in their German classes, she said.
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. In Hamburg, according to the teachers’ association, this was true of almost half of Muslim girls in 2004.
Germans lives in a Doppelganger world and like other EU countries, are struggling with their growing Muslim population and their cultural demands. Hobohm made clear that the so-called concept of â€™Euro Islamâ€™ was â€™not accepted by the majority of Muslimsâ€™ in Germany.
In another regional case, the judges had to decide whether a class excursion was mandatory for a Muslim girl. In their ruling of 2002, they parroted the language of a fatwa issued two years previously. The former chairman of the Islamic Religious Community in Hesse had stipulated that a Muslim woman not accompanied by a mahram, a male blood relative, must not stray more than 50 miles from her home – because this is the distance a caravan of camels can travel in 24 hours.
Camels are something of an anomaly on the German autobahn these days. Sympathetic judges nonetheless recommended sending the 15-year-old brother along as a mahram. Given her fear of losing her headscarf or violating other religious laws, the schoolgirl’s condition, they argued, was comparable to that of a “partially mentally handicapped person.” She therefore needed somebody to accompany her; otherwise, she should not be forced to take part in the trip, they reasoned.
The EU and Germany is having hard time passing this camel through their multicultural needle.
