There was an anti-islamization event in Berlin today, organized under the auspices of the Pro Deutschland/Pro Berlin political movement, which is fielding several candidates in the upcoming Berlin elections.
Despite far-left militants having previously incited violence against the “racists and fascists” they claimed would be present, the event passed off peacefully. No doubt this was due to the heavy police presence. The photo below shows the event area almost fully enclosed by police vans in the background.
But Muslims in Germany are more concerned with “Islamophobia” than they are with Muslim radicals among them and think non-Muslim extremists are the real problem.
They said that national security is fine — but that any discussion linking Islam directly to terrorism is the worst kind of wrong. After taking office in March, Interior Minister Friedrich caused outrage when saying historically Islam was no part of Germany.
