Gates of Vienna provides us Nash Montana’s translation of a report from OE24. Islam apologists might want to consider a smoke-filled back-room convention to decide how to best provide cover and concealment for this one. Two parents in Rendsburg, Germany are facing criminal charges and a hefty monetary fine for refusing to allow their 13 year old son’s participation in a school field trip – to a mosque.
From GOV’s translation:
Student refuses mosque visit: €300 penalty
Parents are lodging an appeal. But still a €300 penalty is looming, and a forced visit to a mosque
According to the syllabus topic “The Orient — power factor, water and crude oil”, a school class in the German town of Rendsburg was scheduled to visit a mosque. But one 13-year-old student did not want to make the visit, as the online portal mmnews.de reports. The parents sought a dialogue with the school after the announcement of the field trip destination. Since they aren’t members of any denomination or faith community, they were of the opinion that no one can be forced to step inside a religious facility. “Why should we send our child to people who generally despise and condemn unbelievers?” the parents asked the school.
That seems like a perfectly reasonable question to me. But, let’s go on, shall we?
€300 penalty and forced visit
German Constitutional law would agree, but the responsible parties at the school see it different. The school’s headmistress filed a complaint with the police and the county school inspector issued a penalty charge notice against the mother as well as the father of the student. Reason: The child did not attend the “information event” at the mosque.
To a disinterested observer, it would seem that the “school’s headmistress” has become the Great Sharia Enforcer of Rendsburg.
Now the parents look like “dangerous felons”, they say. There was a hearing. The penalty charge notice never considered any exculpatory circumstances. Therefore the parents “didn’t in a satisfying manner see to their child’s school attendance”. Now a €300 penalty charge looms, and a forced visit to the mosque. The parents have filed an appeal. Therefore this case will be heard in district court soon.
As followers of this blog already know, that little tiny piece of criticism the parents leveled against the people who generally despise and condemn unbelievers can get one executed for the crime of blasphemy in a fully Shariah-compliant nation.
At this stage of the game, Germany has not quite arrived at that terrible place. Blasphemy offenders in Deutschland face a fine.
But, come on. Let’s face it. Europe is well past the 5% Muslim population tipping point. Which is to say that short of all-out war, as waged by Ferdinand and Isabella to drive the Ottoman Turks from power in 15th Century Spain, there is no example in history of a nation turning back the tide.
For Deutschland, it’s only a matter of time, now. Here’s Danish historian Lars Hedegaard to drive home that very disturbing idea.
