Michael Stürzenberger is a writer, political activist, and stalwart of the Counterjihad in Germany, especially in Munich. A couple of weeks ago we wrote about the conviction of Mr. Stürzenberger for posting a photo on Facebook of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem shaking hands with a Nazi during the Second World War (see the article and interview about the conviction of Michael Stürzenberger). His crime was “inciting hatred towards Islam”. The court sentenced him to six months in prison — for sharing an accurate historical artifact.
It was encouraging to learn today that Poland has championed Michael Stürzenberger’s case at an official level, and will take Germany to task at the Council of Europe for its failure to uphold freedom of expression as guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to which Germany is a signatory. A persecuted dissident must find it bracing to receive the backing of the governing party of a sovereign nation and member state of the European Union.
