Robert Spencer & ESW
Just taking a peek, really!
The Tundra Tabloids had the privilege to “mosque hop it” with ESW earlier this year in Malmö, Sweden. The place was deserted save for a few people whose shoes were noticeable on the floor as we stepped into the “mens only” section, indicating their presence somewhere in the facility. But this time around, ESW, in the company of Robert Spencer, took to the streets searching for multicultural enrichment, and they found it in spades. KGS
The intrepid Austrian freedom fighter E.S.W. reports on our tour of three mosques in Berlin last Sunday:
Last Sunday I entered the surreal world of cultural enrichment in Berlin. Being from Vienna, where the Socialist government has given the multiculturalists a free hand for the past century, I thought I was already used to the sight of hijabed women of all backgrounds, with countless children in tow. Well, I was in for an unpleasant surprise.
Robert Spencer and I safaried through heavily enriched areas of Berlin, with Berlin-BPE member Uwe Morowski kind enough to act as our guide. It was the day after Germany’s Reunification Day, which has been turned into an Open House day for Muslims, a day on which they hope to open their hearts and …., well, mosques to more or less unsuspecting visitors interested in joining the Religion of Peace. It must have been a hugely successful day, requiring rest for everybody, because Robert and I visited three very different mosques, two of which were deserted.
The first mosque was owned by DITIB (http://www.ditib.de/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish-Islamic_Union_for_Religious_Affairs), a religious organization which is part of the Turkish embassy in Germany and as such enjoys diplomatic immunity. DITIB is in charge of all imams preaching in Germany, with the Turkish ministry of religious affairs, the Diyanet, in charge of the content of all Friday sermons.
We entered the mosque itself, which was empty except a mumbling old man crouching on the floor, all but ignoring three infidels, one without the usually prerequisite head covering. We walked about, pretending admiration, and were out soon. Nothing really to see. The courtyard, however, was a lot more information-friendly. The wall sported some interesting posters. One showed a girl covering her face with her hands and the text: “Domestic violence and what to do about it”. DITIB will help you in case of: family conflicts and problems; problems with education, school and puberty; (drug) addiction; crisis situations; domestic violence; sexual abuse; marriage, separation and divorce; debt; family reunification; questions regarding residence permits; questions regarding public institutions; and last, but not least: DISCRIMINATION!
One photograph shows us in front of an office with a sign saying: “Consul/Attaché for consular and religious affairs”.
We happened upon the next mosque by chance as we peered through a dark window and saw a young boy cowering on the floor. A young man waved us to the entrance and politely asked us to enter. Since I pretended not to speak any German, and Uwe was not part of the mosque, a man who appeared to be Syrian was quickly summoned, shaking Robert’s and Uwe’s hand, but ignoring me completely. Having lived in Muslim-Arab countries for a number of years, I did not expect anything else. However, the feeling is one of utter humiliation every time. The man proudly showed us the mosque which was still under construction, and with its elaborate arabesques and ornate dome, clearly showed signs that enormous expenditures had been made. There were children running around everywhere as well as young girls, some no older than nine or ten years, in full hijab mode.
