Hat tip Doc's Talk and Gatestone Institute
"German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said: "Salafism, as represented in the associations that were banned today, is incompatible with our free democratic order. The groups aim to change our society in an aggressive, belligerent way so that democracy would be replaced by a Salafist system, and the rule of law replaced by Sharia law."
How refreshing to hear a European interior minister call it like it is when referring to homegrown extremist threats from radical Salafists who are wreaking havoc all over the country. Soeren Kern, writing for the Gatestone Institute, has a report on recent events in Germany.
Germany places heavy importance on it constitution and its democratic system. Trying to undermine them is a serious criminal offense in Germany.
Too bad we don't have more politicians in Washington who are not afraid to speak out about Islamic radicalization in the US. We do have a few, like Peter King of New York and Sue Myrick of North Carolina, but not nearly enough. They pay a heavy price, however, in terms of the vitriol they get from organizations like CAIR, and Rep. Keith Ellison aided by their stooges like LA County Sheriff Lee Baca, and politicians like Maxine Waters and Judy Chu.
