Muslims Throw Hissy Fits About Wilders “War Against Islam”

Mustards go apeshit because Wilders keeps telling the truth…. (thanks to Vlad Tepes)

Clarin Akinyosoye religion.ORF.at.

During his visit to Vienna, Netherlander Geert Wilders compared the Koran with Hitler’s Mein Kampf. A Muslim organization notified the Vienna prosecutor’s office.

The speech of the Netherlands politician, given last week in the Hofburg at the invitation of the FPÖ, setting forth his thoughts on the “Islamization of Europe,” will be examined by the public prosecutor. Tarafa Baghajati is head of the Austrian Muslim Initiative * (IMÖ)–the organization that sent the notification to the prosecutor on Tuesday.

DENIGRATION OF RELIGIOUS DOCTRINES?

It is legitimate, said Baghajati to religion.ORF.at., to examine whether content of the speech is illicit. Specifically, it concerns the persecution paragraphs on denigration of religious doctrine and the prohibition statute. According to media reports, Wilders had maintained in his speech that Islam had declared war on Europe, and was urging people to become terrorists and that the Koran had to be forbidden.

Such speeches being given in in a location with the symbolic significance of the Hofburg,** said Baghajati, is harmful to Austria’s reputation. The FPÖ, and especially its chief Heinz-Christian Strache, were constantly emphasizing that they are not against Islam and Muslims, but against the abuse of Islam and against extremists, said Baghajati.

ISLAM-HATRED AS A PROGRAM

However, said the head of the IMÖ, the fact that the FPÖ invited a politician who makes no distinction between Islam and the abuse of Islam, and even compares the Koran with Mein Kampf, shows where the FPÖ really stands. It will be up to the prosecutor’s office to decide whether the comparison should be seen as a whitewash of Nazism.

“We are afraid that hostility to Islam is becoming more and more a political program for right-oriented parties,” said Baghajati. Incipient Islam-hostile tendencies are also showing up in the mainstream, says the IMÖ head man.

“BEING VIGILANT”

The generalized suspicion directed toward Islam and Muslims, he says, is growing increasingly stronger in the society as a whole. Against this background. speeches like Wilders’ are dangerous for “the coherence of all society and not just for Muslims.” As with the general social problem of racism, countering it is not just the business of those affected, but of everyone–politicians, media, intellectuals and civil society. They must all be vigilant.

The organization, Austrian Muslim Initiative, was founded in 1999 and strives for to the social participation of Muslims in the general welfare.
Among other goals named on the organization’s website is “civic engagement in the area of anti-racism,.”

[Translators notes]

*Just as a matter of interest, the phrase meaning “Austrians” depicts the progress thus far from the “misogynous” general masculine Österreicher, standing for all persons, through Östereicher(innen)–inclusive of both sexes–to the present Österreicherinnen und Österreicher (feminine first) to what a German friend considers to be the predictable end result .i.e., the generalized feminine, standing for both sexes. Why not? Androgyny beckons.

**Hofburg–From the 13th to the early 20th century, residence of the Habsburgs in Vienna.

    Here, in less than 7 minutes, is why we are such a miserable failure, here, in less than 7 minutes is why all our hatred, our murder, our persecution, our madness, our prejudice, our politics, our betrayal, our utter lack of humanity and all of that which makes us human, all of that which makes us so frail, all of that which makes us so insignificant and all of that which makes us such a miserable and spectacular failure……

    Behold…………the Universe and our insignificance.
