Once upon a magical time Barack Obama told America that one of the prettiest sounds in the world is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset. Well, here’s what it sounds like as it now blares every day at noon from the minarets of the DITIB mosque in Gladbeck, Germany. The indigenous inhabitants are not very happy about it.
Minister of Internal Affairs of Federal Republic of Germany Thomas De Maizière didn’t believe the new policy of allowing the electronic equipment to deliver its ear-shattering message was at all a bad thing. And he was not sympathetic to complaints about the “music” – you know- griping and grousing which poured in from the intolerant “right-wing extremist” segments of the community.
Ergo PEGIDA leader Tatjana and friends gathered outside Dr. Maiziere’s office and played the music for his benefit – at the legal level of 60 decibels.
See what you think. And if you believe this isn’t eventually coming to your comfy little American neighborhood, think again.
