Better late than never or a CYA move? The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, or BfV, described its 40-page brochure as a tool for educators, social workers, police and others who work closely with recent Muslim immigrants or refugees. Self-titled “Chancellor to the migrants” Merkel replaced millions of murdered Jews with millions of Jew haters.
Germany issues ‘early warning’ report about rise of Islamist antisemitism
In 2012, a Bundestag commission was established to report on antisemitism nationwide and in all categories.By Toby Axelrod, J Post, May 9, 2019:
The top intelligence agency in Germany has written what is being called its most comprehensive analysis of rising antisemitism by Islamist extremists.
The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, or BfV, described its 40-page brochure as a tool for educators, social workers, police and others who work closely with recent Muslim immigrants or refugees.
Titled “Antisemitism in Islamism,” the recently published report represents a leap forward in terms of the agency’s focus on the topic, spokeswoman Angela Pley told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in a telephone interview.She said the agency has never published such a comprehensive analysis of the subject based on empirical data.
“We are an early warning system,” Pley said. “Recommendations on what can be done must come from society and the political establishment.”
Pley said there had been no public response to the report by Muslim associations in Germany, but that it had been downloaded 1,439 times since its release.
It is one of a few recent government measures born of increased concern about antisemitism in Germany.
In 2018, the government appointed a commissioner, Felix Klein, to focus specifically on the topic. In 2012, a Bundestag commission was established to report on antisemitism nationwide and in all categories.
“Antisemitism in Islamism” homes in on the Islamist extremist component, which represents a looming threat, the agency said, though relatively few anti-Semitic crimes in Germany have been attributed to Islamist extremism.
The report distinguishes between “Islam” the religion and “Islamism,” which it describes as a form of political extremism that “aims at the partial or complete abolition of the liberal democratic constitution of the Federal Republic of Germany.”
Nonsense. As my esteemed colleague Robert Spencer esteemed explains, “The term “Islamist” is in common use to refer to Muslim individuals and organizations that adhere to Islamic law’s political aspects (most notably its denial of any legitimacy of a separation between religion and the state) and consequently most fiercely oppose America, Israel and the West in general. The implication is that Islam itself, in its authentic form, has no requisite political aspect, and no incompatibility with Western values or democratic government.
The problem with this is that it is a Western, artificial distinction, imposed by non-Muslims upon the Islamic world and lacking any real substance with reference to Islamic law as it has always been formulated by the Sunni and Shi’ite madhahib (schools of jurisprudence). Islam has always been political, and the union of religion and the state has always been essential to its political program; the idea that all this can and should be separated from Islam proper is the wishful thinking of Western analysts who do not wish to face the implications of the fact that these ideas represent mainstream Islamic thinking.”
