German racism made the transition racial hatred to religious enmity / EU NewsÂ via Mullah
Islam, the religion of the professors:
Wilhelm HeitmeyerÂ is aÂ Professor ofÂ SocialisationÂ atÂ Bielefeld UniversityÂ inÂ Germany. Heitmeyer’sÂ research interests areÂ right-wing extremism,Â violence,Â xenophobia, ethnic-conflicts, social disintegration and group-focused enmity. (Obviously blind on left-wing extremism)
Once again a corrupt university professor dumps a truckload of “Islamophobia”-BS on his countrymen. Â Scratch the surface and you’ll find that he is Â a cheap sellout and a reprehensible shrieker; “racism” of course is something no muslim could ever be guilty of.
A new study warns that Islamophobia in Germany becoming culturally acceptable, as racism moves away from ethnicity towards religious bias against Muslims.
“It’s no longer ‘the Turks’ but ‘the Muslims’,” Wilhelm Heitmeyer, head of the institute for research of interdisciplinary conflict and violence at Bielefeld University told theÂ Neue OsnabrÃ¼cker ZeitungÂ on Monday. Research has led him to be concerned general xenophobia had given way to a growing rejection of Islam in Germany.
Shock horror! How can anyone not like polygamy, honour-killings, child-marriage, stoning of women and suicide bombers!? Â Lets be a little more tolerant here, before we Â send you to a reeducation camp for ‘sensitivity training’….
His theory is not new – a study from MÃ¼nster university found that in 2010, 66 percent of western Germans and 74 percent of eastern Germans had a negative attitude towards Muslims.
And a more recent study from the Allensbach Institute suggested that this had not changed over the past two years, as only 22 percent of Germans asked said they agreed with Germany’s ex-President Christian Wulff’s statement that Islam, like Christianity, was a part of Germany.
Heitmeyer also found that Islamophobia seemed to exist not only in the far-right, but was also present in more left-leaning and centrist circles. The sentiment was identifiable throughout the country, from the highest echelons of society to the lowest.
Neo-Nazi expert from DÃ¼sseldorf technical university Alexander HÃ¤usler told the newspaper that while discriminating against an entire ethnicity was a taboo, religion-based racism was generally considered to be exercising freedom of opinion.
“Criticism of Islam or Muslims appear acceptable, because it is not seen as classically racist,” said HÃ¤usler.
German Muslims have too voiced concern about growing anti-Islamic sentiment. Head of the Central Council for Muslims in Germany Aiman Mazyek told theNeue OsnabrÃ¼cker ZeitungÂ that police and intelligence officials still refuse to acknowledge violent attacks towards Muslims independently, instead grouping it generally with xenophobia.
“By doing this, hostility against Islam is being blurred out,” said Mazyek. He added that the government should publish a yearly racism report.
