Translated byÂ Â Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, thanks to Vlad Tepes:
A number of raids were carried out on mosques in Austria and a number of arrests were made on serious charges. But perhaps more interesting is the official position of the Austrian government concerning what people areÂ allowed to say about those raids:
The majority of the 500,000 Muslims wants to live here peacefully and has nothing to do with the terror by IS. But the jihadists abuse Islam for their own purposes; they kill and rape in the name of Islam. This is why there must not be any general suspicion. The public must exercise awareness, because what is at stake here are our value system and human rights. But let me warn about abusing this raid for the purpose of propaganda. Whoever resorts to this is as guilty as the other if there are assaults on innocents. (Austria’s Minister of the Interior)
