Massive clashes between different cultures are a near daily occurrence in Germany as well as in Austria. However, conflicts between Christians and muslims cause increasing anger among the citizens and for quite a while they have not been willing to accept just about anything. Recently there was such a case in the German town of Offenbach near Frankfurt on the Main. After an agreement had been reached between the two cultures, the Muslims demanded still more and more.

Cemetary without Crosses. 

Dying is no-one’s favorite subject, except in the following case: A muslim community had asked for a special place on the cemetery of the hessian town, Seligenstadt on the Main. So far so good.  Such a place had been found for them. But now the (muslim) community demands that during a (muslim) burial, all Christian symbols be removed from the entire cemetery grounds. 

It had taken extensive negotiations to allow the Muslims their own ceremony. On this part of the cemetery, no coffins are to be put into the ground, but the corpses are to be wrapped in cloth, and laid out pointing towards East, ie Mecca. During this procedure, while Suras from the Koran will be read out, all crosses in the mourning hall are to be taken down or hidden away. These demands are made by Bashir Kumcu from the Ahmadiyya Community with the explanation: “We are also making adjustments by following the rules of the cemetery administration.

Nobody from this German town was willing to comment. However the tones one can hear from the town hall are clearer: “The Muslims can hold their funerals ceremonies somewhere else, where there are no Crosses”.

  1. In 2008 Derby city council in the UK was giving a £1000 “special ” jizya discount for “vaulted graves”. The British taxpayers (who had to wait to be buried on weekdays as weekend burials were only available to members of the cult) had to pay the £1000 for the privileged few to be buried in a vaulted grave.

  2. Iraq crisis: Militants seize Tikrit after taking Mosul (BBC, June 11, 2014)

    “Islamist insurgents in Iraq have seized the city of Tikrit, their second major gain after capturing Mosul on Tuesday, security officials say. Tikrit, the hometown of former leader Saddam Hussein, lies just 150km (95 miles) north of the capital Baghdad.

    Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki has vowed to fight back against the jihadists and punish those in the security forces who have deserted. The insurgents are from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). ISIS, which is also known as ISIL, is an offshoot of al-Qaeda.

    It controls considerable territory in eastern Syria and western and central Iraq, in a campaign to set up a Sunni militant enclave straddling the border. There were also reports on Thursday of fighting further south, in Samarra.

    “Uzbek militants fighting with the Pakistani Taliban say they carried out Sunday’s deadly assault on Karachi’s international airport. The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan posted photos of 10 men in black turbans holding AK-47s who had sought revenge for military air strikes.

    At least 39 people were killed in the airport raid, including all 10 gunmen.

  5. Jews Christians and Muslims are not supposed to be buried in the same place. You are mixing facts and making confusion. “can’t see crosses during the burial? Some cemeteries have all three faiths in a large open area. Of course no one has the right to mess with someone else’s grave and that means if you can see a cross during a burial…what kind of objection is that and Ahmadis are NOT trouble makers!
