We, April 20, 2016
A German political party is considering adopting an openly anti-Islam stance. A faction within the ‘Alternative fur Deutschland’ party has called for a total ban on the Burqa and minarets on mosques, arguing that Islam is not a normal religion and therefore is not covered by constitutional protections for religious freedom.
“Islam is not a religion like Catholic or Protestant Christianity, but rather always associated intellectually with the takeover of a state,” the party’s leader in Brandenburg state Alexander Gauland in an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, reported Deutsche Welle.
The party’s deputy leader, Beatrix von Storch, said “Islam is a political ideology that is not compatible with the constitution.”
The party's manifesto will be finalized before its conference on April 30.
Repositioning to be openly anti-Islam marks a break with the party's previous anti-immigration stance and may be pushed through at the upcoming party conference. The party leader, Frauke Petry, is opposd to the shift according to the Telegraph.
Alternative Fur Deutschland (AfD) has under 5% of the vote, but has gained seats in some regional assemblies. Its leader, Bernd Lücke, is a member of the European Parliament.
AfD’s proposals have been slammed by some as racist and drawn comparisons to some nazi Party. Even if Islam is not a RACE BUT A IDEOLOGY.
Ideology is ruling your day and not your physical appearance there is a big difference one you are born with and cant escape but the second by the name ideology can in most cases be discarded or left and changed. So there is a fundamental difference between the two,
At last but not least a reminder to the ones who abuse the word racist. Africans are considered race, Asians are Considered a race ,Mongols are considered a race, Inuits or Eskimos are considered a race, and many-many more races exist on this planet however non of them can be called a religion.
