A muslim in Germany warns of Islam - an unusual, but welcomed position.
I'm ashamed to be Muslim! Why we should not trust Islam in Europe by M. Walid Nakschbandi
(...) A peek into a mosque in Cologne-Müllheim, Berlin, Neukölln or Hamburg-Altona during Friday prayers is enough to see that hate sits deep within these groups and that nothing can be achieved by arguing with them.
That is where the not exactly peaceable writings of the (Maulawis), the so-called Islamic scholars, are
pushed into the community. That is where schoolbooks with radical contents are distributed for free. We
all used to believe that these were the confused thougts of a handful of illiterates. How naive! We
finally comprehend that they want to destroy us and our ideals. Even here, in Germany ...
We must ask ourselves what is more important in these exceptional circumstances: to temporarily limit our freedoms and strike a blow for the survival of our society, or to fall victim to terror with our rights intact.
Muslims in Germany must comprehend that the misuse of belief, conscience, and freedom of belief for fanatics and their followers cannot continue. In the meantime, Muslim fanatics and their sympathizers have made it such that reasonable, enlightened Muslims are ashamed. Like me.
