Frankfurt am Main – The journalist Volker Siefert (Frankfurt am Main) practiced a sharp criticism of a planned event, organized by the Federal Ministry of the Interior, together with Islamic associations for chief editors.

As he writes in a commentary under the heading “Heile-Islam-World-Workshop in the Ministry of the Interior” in the magazine of the German journalist association “Journalist” (Remagen), the member associations of the German Islam Conference demanded of Thomas de Maizière (CDU) a course “in which chief editors of all relevant media in Germany should learn how to correctly report on Islam”.

He said it was going to be on the ministry’s premises in early 2017 and had been developed by the Ministry of the Interior and Islamic associations: “This is what the associations have created what lobbyists otherwise dream of: namely, that the state intervenes in the process of opinion formation, about something that is directly discussed with the media’s responsible leaders. “

Siefert: A minister cannot give tuition lessons to journalists [how they should write]

The action is downplayed by the Ministry of the Interior as “perfectly normal”. Siefert: “If this were normal, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology would have organized a workshop on a” workplace-friendly “reporting in the Diesel affair together with the car industry.” The state has to keep out of lobbying: “A minister isn’t allowed to act as co-organizer (neither for a group nor for a person) together with a group of interests to provide tutoring lessons for journalists.”

Siefert works as a freelance journalist for, among other things, Hessischer Rundfunk (HR) and is primarily concerned with Islamic motivated extremism. In 2006, the then interior minister Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) wanted to create the “institutional framework for dialogue between people of Muslim faith and representatives of all levels of our community” with the German Islam Conference.

Ten umbrella organizations, including the Turkish-Islamic Union of the Institute for Religion (DITIB), the Central Council of Muslims in Germany and the Alevit Community Deutschland (all in Cologne), are participating in the project.

  1. “the member associations of the German Islam Conference demanded of Thomas de Maizière (CDU) a course “in which chief editors of all relevant media in Germany should learn how to correctly report on Islam”.”

    “The [previous] Federal Ministry of the Interior launched the German Islam Conference on 27 September 2006, creating the first forum for a dialogue between federal, state and local government and Muslims in Germany.

    In 2010, the conference plenary adopted a comprehensive work programme for the current legislative session. The preparatory committee and the project and working groups it established began their efforts immediately. Results have already been achieved in the three areas of concentration chosen for the period 2010 to 2013:

    promoting institutionalized cooperation and integration-related projects;
    experiencing gender equality as a shared value; and
    preventing extremism, radicalization and polarization of society.”

    By every evidence, the tail now demands and wags the German Shepherd. Like any organ that accommodates Islam.

  2. Thanks so much for posting this! I was looking for this article, which was posted on another site, but I couldn’t find it anymore. This is not just scandalous, this is against the fundamental law of Germany, it is the complete sellout to the Mohammedans, abject dhimmitude.

      • “The first wave of feminism took place in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, emerging out of an environment of urban industrialism and liberal, socialist politics.”
        “The second wave began in the 1960s and continued into the 90s. This wave unfolded in the context of the anti-war and civil rights movements and the growing self-consciousness of a variety of minority groups around the world.”
        “The third wave of feminism began in the mid-90’s and was informed by post-colonial and post-modern thinking. In this phase many constructs were destabilized, including the notions of “universal womanhood,” body, gender, sexuality and heteronormativity.”
        “The fourth wave of feminism is still a captivating silhouette. A writer for Elle Magazine recently interviewed me about the waves of feminism and asked if the second and third waves may have “failed or dialed down” because the social and economic gains had been mostly sparkle, little substance, and whether at some point women substituted equal rights for career and the atomic self. ”

        Nope, it’s just lesbians who want to get a look at your vagina. If they can, Islam can.

        • PC thank you for your wit and wisdom. I extend the same to all contributors on this site and of course to Vlad. I wish you all good health and happiness in the new year. Merry Christmas!
