Does Islam in fact have a murderous contempt for women and homosexuals? Certainly there are many Muslim clerics and rank-and-file believers who believe that it does, approving of death sentences for gays, the honor killing of women, and the like. But for non-Muslims to point out that such views have a basis within Islamic texts and teachings is Islamophobic. Apologies must be issued.
Politicians demand apology from Germanys biggest-selling newspaper for editorial comment piece criticising Islam and accusing it of murderous contempt for women and homosexuals, Daily Mail, July 28, 2014 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):
Germanys biggest-selling newspaper has faced calls to apologise for an editorial comment piece criticising Islam which has sparked debate and controversy in the country.
Nicolaus Fest, the vice editor in chief of the newspaper Bild am Sonntag, was criticised after accusing Islam of a murderous contempt for women and homosexuals in a comment piece yesterday.
Fest described the religion as a barrier to integration saying: I dont believe in God, but at the same time Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism dont bother me. Only Islam bothers me more and more.
The newspaper has now responded to criticism after politicians described the piece as racist, The Local has reported.
What race is Sharia oppression of women and gays again? I keep forgetting.
According to the website, the comment piece had been shared more than 9,700 times on social media by this morning, with critics including Volker Beck, a member of the Green political party, calling for the paper to apologise.
Last night, Bilds editor-in-chief Kai Diekmann wrote an editorial, which was posted online, saying there was an unshakeable dividing line between Islam as a world religion and the degrading ideology of Islamism.
He wrote: Thats why in Bild and Axel Springer [publications] there is no room for generalized, depreciating comments against Islam and the people who believe in Allah.
The comment piece was published in the wake of Germanys condemnation of anti-Semitic chants and threats heard at some of the protests against Israels conflict with Hamas in Gaza .
Yes, it does. Next question ?
How did Europe ever allow that disease (islam) to enter their nations? They are toast.
Fallout from WW2. They went so far insane against Jews and others that they now have to morally equalize everything.
The question is are the Germans as cowed by Muslims as US newspapers?
Pi$$ on Islam!
I predict the first sustained violence against the non-Muslim will begin in Spain. It has only been just over 600 years that the Moors were kicked out. I am sure they
believe it is time to retake that country.
This would be my apology: “Hey, you goat-f***ing Muzzie @$$holes, eat sh*t!”
Is that diplomatic enough? Don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.
Your apology is over there, in the pig pen.
WWII so decimated the populations of Europe that they were desperate for cheap labor to rebuild so they allowed virtually unrestrained immigration from Africa and the Mid East. The problem is that the Muslims never integrated into the European culture. They remained African and Mid East Muslims even to the 2nd and 3rd generations.
Except we’re doing it too.
I agree that it’s suicidal.
Be specific. They have feed bins and water too.
The muzzies have the honkies on the run all over the world. You women better start picking out some nice burkas.
You words of wisdom are needed here.
They went against Jews and got something 10,000x worse. I would have no problems living among Jews. I couldn’t live among muzzies .... they would kill me.
Well,you see, it’s where it’s already a little dirty, if you know what I mean.
What utter rubbish. Thirteen years since 9-11-01, and I am still waiting to learn something -- ANYTHING -- about Islam that is not completely disgusting.
