A German Islam sounds better than an Islamic Germany. Though the latter is more likely than the former. But European governments have gotten into the absurd habit of calling for a French Islam, a German Islam or a British Islam, as if such a mutant creation actually existed or could exist.
A veteran ally of Angela Merkel urged Muslims in Germany on Sunday to develop a “German Islam” based on liberalism and tolerance, saying the influx of people seeking refuge, many of them Muslims, is a challenge for mainstream society.
Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, stepping out of his usual finance remit, urged tolerance, saying the arrival of hundreds of thousands of migrants required a better understanding among Germans of what is important to them and how they want to live.
The understanding is pretty clear. And whatever a German Islam will be, it won’t be based on liberalism and tolerance, two qualities incompatible with Islam. Considering that Muslim settlers in Germany are heavily Turkish, German Islam will just be Turkey. And eventually so will Germany.
The only aspect of Germany that Muslims admire is Nazism. Not liberalism or tolerance.
