Michael Coren & Robert Spencer on Censorship, Media-Spin & That Delusional "Backlash"

On February 14, 2012, Michael Mannheimer received a penalty fine from the Heilbronn district court in the degree of 50 days at 50 euros per day (2,500 euros). The basis for the fine was Mannheimer’s criticism of Islam, especially his claim that Islam is working on taking over and islamizing Europe. In addition to this, his evidence that Islam is striving for world power and his conclusion that Qur’an and Sharia are irreconcilable with the Constitution. Mannheimer’s publicized call for public resistance from April 8th of last year where he invoked Article 20 Section 4 of the Constitution.

With this, state attacks against exposed critics of Islam now on the advance. There were Geert Wilders and Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, and now this affects one of the most well-known and aggressive critics of Islam in Germany. The charge was made by a Baden-Württemberg court. One would be a rascal to think that this might possibly have a connection with the Red-Green victory and the current Kretschmann administration. Political processes – and this is one – is fundamentally being eyed by the current regional minister of justice. And this person, with his discretionary position, could decide whether a trial could arise from a charge. Therefore, the ministry of justice is authorized to issue directives to the district attorney. And for the first time since 1945, Turkish regional ministers sit in the Baden-Württemberg cabinet – and we don’t need to say a thing here about the Turkish clientele in the SPD and among the Greens.

The charge states:

“Said individual is charged with having distributed a storage of data equivalent to a document where hostility against a religious group is incited, calls for violence or capricious measures against them and whereby their dignity is attacked, that they are insulted, maliciously made contemptible and are slandered.

As to the issue in particular:

“Mannheimer’s call for public resistance according to Article 20, Section 4 of the Constitution”

In his article, “Appeal to all freedom-loving citizens of Germany,” which was declared public, he makes sweeping defamation and demonization of Islam as “misanthropic fascism” and villifies it as the “worst possible enemy of freedom, equality and fraternity.”

He implies of the “millions of people who were brought here against the will of the German people” that they “despise our cultural and civilizational achievements and intend to abolish our European culture in favor of the barbaric system of Islam.” Muslims in Germany and in the rest of Europe have worked persistently and with great success toward the taking over of our continent.”


The writing of the Heilbronn district court, as a result, justifies the penalty fine against Mannheimer as follows:

“With these statements, the accused, employing conscious distortion of among other things the substance of faith anchored in the Qur’an, portrays Islam indiscriminately as a militant, intolerant and unpeaceful religion that is dangerous and not worth the attention of the citizens. In another section he advances his verbal attacks against Islam and its followers and castigates the alleged exaggerated and ruthless striving for power by Islam by asserting – and furthermore distorting Islam’s foundations of faith – that the central goal of Islam is world domination” and that this goal, predetermined through the Qur’an and Sunna, is subordinate to the whole of religious life of Islam.

Furthermore it says:

“From this consciously warped image being portrayed of the alleged substance and goals of Islam as being hostile to the Constitution” and being supported “by the German establishment,” the accused constructs an alleged right of citizens to resist through abusive and pseudo-legal claims of determination by the Constitution by explaining the he believes the time has arrived for the implementation and relentless employment of the right of resistance (and the duty of opposition) by all Germans according to Article 20, Section 4 of the Constitution”.”

The writing closes with the reiteration of the charge:

Incitement of the people according to Paragraph 130, Section 2, number 1, letter a) Penal Code in association with Paragraph 11, Section 3 Penal Code.
Amount of fine 50 x 50 – totalling 2,500.–
An instruction for legal remedy was attached.

Since Mannheimer cannot afford an attorney, and since an attorney was not presented by the state for legal aid due to the relatively small amount of the fine (that, by the way, gave the shadowing of no previous offense), Mannheimer indicated to us that his only choice was to pay the fine against him anyway – or simply to make an objection to it, which he also did then.


Thus, Mannheimer will be defending himself if by the court date no attorney can be found who will take on his defense without cost. Since Mannheimer has no attorney he also has no way of looking at the case file and could not answer our question regarding the accuser.

Let nobody fool themselves that this charge applies only to the person of Mannheimer. It is a charge against German criticism of Islam as a whole and the intent of it is to weigh down future criticism of Islam or even completely forbid it. This is one of the prime demands by Muslim associations, not only in Germany but worldwide and is demanded of the UN by means of the OIC (Organization of Islamic Countries): This should obtain a passage according to which criticism of Islam should be internationally place under penalty.

If Mannheimer should be condemned, this would be the heaviest strike so far by the leftists against the human right of free speech in Germany. We must never let it come to this. We owe it to our historical heritage – not just to the citizen rights after 1948 but also to the resistance fighters against the Hitler regime who – like the members of the White Rose, the fellow fighters around Graf Stauffenberg, but also such courageous lone warriors as Georg Elser – all had to pay with their lives for their engagement for human rights.

Michael is abroad a lot in order to hold lectures. He has already travelled to more than 80 countries for his studies. It would be good for him not only to receive considerable support from Germany, but also from every European country as well as the US, Australia, Russia, Canada and New Zealand.

  1. They would definitely have to kill me to shut me up, which is exactly what isslamm proposed, so these foolish western nations definitely seem to be tools of their own enemies. It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad and so shameful.

  2. SENSATION! Michael Mannheimer calls the population of Germany to general resistance according to the article 20 (4) of the German Constitution because of the Islamisation of the country.
    This is remarkable news. A few minutes ago the internationally well-known journalist and critic of the Islam Michael Mannheimer has called the population of Germany in a comment on PI-News (#65) to general resistance against the political establishment. He refers in this call to the article 20 (4) GC. This article is unique in its kind among all the western constitutions and is meant to prevent a takeover like Hitler’s in 1933. But read yourself!

    „A public Call to all the citizens of Germany who love the freedom and to all the people in our country who want that our children and grandchildren may live in freedom and human dignity:
    Now that the church embraces the worst enemy of the freedom, equality and brotherhood of all Mankind that one can imagine, the Islam, even the last fortress is fallen.
    Millions of Humans have been brought into the country against the will of the German folk. They disregard the achievements of our culture and civilization and they want to abolish our European culture (which was by no means marked by the Islam but has Greek, Roman and Jewish roots) to the advantage of the barbaric system of Islam. The Muslims in Germany and in the rest of Europe have been at work with a most severe perseverance and gradually growing success for decades to take over our continent.
    Despite the assertion of the political establishment, the Islam does not intend to get integrated into the western society like all the other peaceful religions. This is a plain lie, which our politicians, the ignorant journalists, some leftist social scientists and scholars in Islamic science, long ago converts themselves to Islam, have repeated to us continually over the last decades with the help of the state television and radio, as well as of the other, mostly left dominated media. In the meantime these lies have been revealed and the truth has been made visible to millions of people.
    Because the central aim of the Islam is to dominate the world. The whole “religious” existence of the Islam is subdued to this singular aim. The Koran and the Sunna provide the content for this purpose minutely. And in the end, the jihad is the prescribed means by which this aim is to be achieved.
    This Islamic jihad is the longest, bloodiest, most sacrificial campaign, which was paved with more victims than the Christian holly wars, the Fascism, Nazism and Communism together. The jihad is nothing else but the eternal war of Islam against ALL other “nonbelievers”, until their final destroyal and it is as such the oldest and most devastating crime against humanity on our planet.
    Considering the fact that the whole German establishment: politicians, scientists, media, justice, and now even the church sympathize and collaborates with the Islam and they all started to work hard and in concordance with the aim of Islam to abolish successively the German Constitution, and considering the fact that the anticonstitutional de-ethnification of the German population, despite of all the previous decisions of the highest courts, despite the explicit will of our constitution and despite the will of the majority of the population, I think that the time has come for the law of the resistance (right and duty) of all Germans to be enforced and used intransigently in concordance with the article 20 (4) of the German Constitution!
    In accordance with the status of this law of resistance, the German folk has the right and duty to stand up against ALL those forces, who are at work to abolish the German Constitution – including all those, who support this development: the political parties, the municipal and state governments as well as the federal government, but also the media and all the other main important multiplier of the published opinion. The resistance law allows this upstanding explicitly, by any means, even by means of arms, under the condition of a civil war, if all the other means failed.
    German Citizens! Germany’s Police! Germany’s Soldiers! Stand up! Defend your, defend our liberty! Defend the survival of our liberal constitution against its enemies, who recruit themselves from ALL the political parties and from the editorial staff of the most German media! And defend it against those Muslim immigrants, who aim to islamize our country and to install the barbaric, backward, Stone Age tribal kind of sharia.
    Expulse the ruling establishment out of their offices and bureaus, and take them to court.
    The establishment has failed again, like in 1933! Get organized! Stand up from your Couch! Get into the Streets! Take your arms, if there are no more other means! For us, for our children, for our history! Long live the liberty!
    Michael Mannheimer

  3. I agree – every official who yields to insane mohammedan demands should be taken to account on account of the decision.
