With a mission to spread a liberal form of Islam against Muhammad’s Islam, an anti-Islamic mosque where men and women pray side by side has opened its doors in Berlin, complete with female imams! Allahu Akbar resonated through the crowded Ibn-Rushd-Goethe-Mosque as Ani Zonneveld, one of the world’s few female imams, launched the call to prayer.
Then one of the founders of the new place of worship, lawyer and women’s rights activist Seyran Ates, opened the event with words of welcome before Christian and Jewish guests and a large media contingent.
Islam is not a religion, but a terrorist culture. Every time of terror, we hear the same hollow words of shock and grief and how incomprehensible it all is. But we never hear the leaders of Western countries, tell us the truth: The cause of all this bloodshed, all this misery, all this pain and sorrow, is Islam.
Instead of the truth, we get crocodile tears. We have to listen to platitudes, we have politically correct hot air blown at us, again and again. But the truth remains that no bad tree bears good fruit.
What we are witnessing is pure Islamic practice. It is the Koran with its admonishment to “cast terror in the heart of the non-Muslims” (Surah 8:12). It is the so-called prophet Muhammad, who boasted to his followers: “I have been made victorious through terror” (Bukhari, 4.52.220).
Islam is not a peace-loving religion, but an evil totalitarian ideology. It wants all non-Muslims to submit. It is totally incompatible with freedom and human decency. It preaches hatred, propagates violence and is barbaric and violent by nature.
And it also abuses our own freedoms and democratic liberties to subvert our democracy and rob us of these freedoms. It builds mosques and Islamic schools, often with Saudi money, where hatred against the West is preached. It abuses our legal system to harass its critics. It behaves like a fifth column in our midst. It is not global warming that is threatening the world; it is global Islam.
Attack after attack, innocent people are being killed. Everyone is a target. It is absolutely unacceptable that there are still political leaders and media ignoring the problem. They want the citizens to believe that Islam is a peace-loving religion and that there are only a few Islamic extremists who are ruining everything for everyone. But do not let yourselves be fooled. Opinion polls show that no less than two-thirds of Muslims find Islamic rules more important than our secular democratic laws. Research from the University of Amsterdam shows that as many as 11 percent of Muslims find it acceptable to use violence in the name of Islam.
It is impossible for the ideology of Islam to assimilate in a free society. People can assimilate; an ideology cannot. We should not import it any longer to our society. Not because we hate the people, but because we have a problem with an ideology that is totally incompatible with freedom. Those who sow Islam must realize that they will harvest nothing but terrorism and the barbarism of Sharia law, with its oppression of women, Christians, Jews, apostates and Islam critics.
The world is becoming ever more Islamic. Between today and 2060, the number of Muslims will grow by 70 percent. That is more than twice as fast as Christians, thrice as rapid as Hindus, and almost five times faster than Jews. By 2060, Islam will have almost as many adherents as Christianity. And soon after, it is bound to become the largest belief system on earth.
In many Western European countries, populations are growing only because of immigrants. And many of these are Islamic. Muhammad is already the most popular name among newborn boys in major cities in Britain, France, The Netherlands, Belgium and elsewhere. Islam uses all the tools it can lay its hands on. Guns and bombs, knives and cars and planes. But also demography and immigration.
Last year, over 180,000 people crossed in shabby boats from Libya to Europe. And this is just the beginning. The United Nations expect the population of Africa to quadruple by the end of the century. From 1 billion today to 4 billion. One third of the Africans want to leave their own countries. Many of them are Islamic. And many want to move north. If Western Europe continues with its present open-door policies, the population of the European continent is in danger of being replaced and its nations colonized and Islamized. No longer European, but a province of Africa.
In order to save ourselves from atrocities and to stop the process of population replacement in Europe, these are the three most important things we should do:
1. Realize that Islam is the problem and start to de-Islamize our societies. No Islamic schools anymore, no hate preaching. We are facing an existential threat and should treat it as such.
2. End all immigration from Islamic countries. Enough is enough! Those immigrants who are already in our nations are welcome to stay, but only if they fully adhere to our values, our constitution, our laws. If they commit crimes or start acting according to Sharia law, we should expel them at once. If necessary, radical Muslims must also be administratively detained.
3. Get rid of political correctness. We should not let Islam abuse our freedoms and our constitutional rights just to abolish them. It is naïve and dangerous to grant rights to a totalitarian ideology which, if it gets its way, wants to rob us of our rights. We should realize that Islam has declared war on us, but that we will never allow it to win!
Islam hates and kills us. And nobody protects us. Our leaders betray us.
Let us start acting bravely, do our duty and de-Islamize our nations in order to protect us and remain a free people.
“We want to send a signal against Islamic terror and the misuse of our religion,” said Turkish-born Ates, 54, dressed in a long white robe. “We want to practise our religion together.”
Ates — no stranger to breaking taboos, having called for a sexual revolution in Islam — vowed she would not allow ultra-conservatives to rob her of her right to be Muslim.
Kneeling on green carpets, the faithful — men and women, side by side — bowed to Mecca for the traditional prayer as the imam spoke in German. Some of the women wore veils or head coverings, others did not.
All Muslims — Sunni or Shia, Alawite or Sufi — are welcome in the mosque named after one of Germany’s greatest writers, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and 12th century Islamic scholar Ibn Rushd, also known as Averroes.
The seven founding members said they want to open their prayer hall to all groups, including gays and lesbians.
“This mosque allows Muslims to define themselves in a new way,” said co-founder and German Islam scholar Abdel-Hakim Ourghi.
He added that “we will try to depoliticise Islam”, as the religion was being torn by rival political movements. “Because religion is a private matter.”
Police stood guard outside the entrance of the building.
The founders said they had not received any threats or insults, but that they fully expected not everyone would be happy.
Germany, with some four million Muslims, has been the target of Jihadis, the deadliest last December when a truck tore through a Berlin Christmas market crowd killing 12 people.
The arrival of more than one million refugees, most from mainly Muslim countries, since 2015 has worsened the fears of some Germans.
Ates, who has campaigned against forced marriages, domestic violence and honor killings among Muslim migrants, said the project was eight years in the making.
“Many left along the way,” she said. “They told us it was dangerous, that they were afraid.”
Elham Manea, a Swiss political scientist of Yemeni background, said the time had come for change, with other so-called liberal mosques having also opened in the United States, Britain and Switzerland.
The Berlin mosque, financed by private donations, is located in the Berlin district of Moabit, which has a large immigrant population.
It was in this neighborhood that Tunisian Anis Amri, the Christmas market attacker, frequented a radical mosque that has since been closed.
