The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Cultural Jihad in Germany

Typically quiet, there's been more than usual percolating in Germany this week:

The Pakistani government is investigating the death of Amir Cheema, the Offended MuslimTM who commited suicide while in German custody, after being arrested for attempting to murder the editor of Die Welt in Berlin. They insist human rights abuses occurred; all that's missing is, um, evidence.

Thankfully, we have enlightened German judges to outlaw human rights abuses -- like the ancient, barbaric practice of searching electronic databases for patterns that could identify more al Qaeda sleepers. Yes, more; that would be in addition to three who lived in Hamburg and died in mysterious plane crashes on 9/11/01.
The German court ruling said general police trawling of electronic records exposed the people concerned to an increased risk of further investigation.

It added that if such measures became publicly known, they could "reinforce prejudices and stigmatise the affected social groups in the perception of the public."
What a relief that the courts have their priorities in order, as we wouldn't want to make the 32,000 Islamic extremists living in Germany feel unwelcome.
The biggest Islamist group is Milli Gorus, a Turkish movement with 26,500 members. Other groups are Hamas with about 300 members, Hezbollah with 900 and the Muslim Brotherhood with 1,300.

"Even though the degree to which Germany is threatened is clearly lower than for those states which took part in the Iraq war, it must be noted that Germany is still seen ... as a helper of the US and Israel," said the report which underlined the presence of German troops in Afghanistan as boosting this image.
Well then, the German government had better get to work placating its terrorist minority with openly anti-American and anti-Israeli policies, because they've done so little in this regard. The Bundestag is surely no help, provoking Offended MuslimsTM with things like, you know, standards, that makes integration an oppressive burden:
Perhaps provoking the already tense relationship between the government and its immigrants, the German parliament is now debating the implementation of citizenship tests. Germany has one of the lowest citizenship application rates in Western Europe and its laws to become a citizen are much stricter than in the United States, for example.
It's clear that German legislators are just bigots, with no appreciation at all for Islamic family values, like wife-beating, forced marriages, and virginity checks.
At the heart of the matter is a complicated dance between Germany’s inability to fully embrace immigrants, many of whom were invited from Turkey to fill labor shortages, and the immigrants' unwillingness to let go of behaviors and traditions that appear brutal to mainstream Western Europeans.
Sheesh. These stuffy, rigid Germans better loosen up!
