Don't see what the problem is. The leader of the German Muslim Council thinks he's entitled to change the AfD program as he sees fit and simultaneously link the party to Hitler and the Holocaust. There really is no basis for discussion there.
Well, everyone is entitled to say the truth. Sorry if that triggers you.
I know the words "fascist" and "Nazi" are thrown around by the left like they're going out of business but it would suit you and your ilk well to take a step back and look at what you are actually saying when you're accusing the AfD of being a Third Reich party. You are implying that the AfD advocates or would at least tacitly support the murder/forced deportation of 4 million Muslims in Germany. Think about that for a moment. That is a ridiculous charge. As a matter of fact I think anyone making such a claim should get their ass sued for libel. The AfD is right to take such an uncompromising stance on the issue. It's time to stop the casual accusation of perfectly decent people as Nazis.
when the platform says "islam does not belong to germany", what exactly do you think that entails?
I'd say there are a variety of different positions that you can take between "Islam is a part of Germany" (as claimed by the former president) and "gas all Muslims." This part of the platform IMO is just a response to the aforementioned claim by various politicians about Islam being a part of Germany. Personally, I think they could have avoided phrasing it like that because some people see it in a vacuum and immediately jump to conclusions instead of recognizing it as the mere counterpoint that it actually is. The inherent problem has always been that the folks who claim that Islam is a part of Germany don't actually expand on that assertion. Is it part of our culture? If yes, what are the Islamic elements of contemporary German culture aside from döner kebab? Or are we just referring to the simple fact that Muslims are living in Germany, hence Islam is a part of Germany just as is the case with Buddhism, Shinto etc.?
So as long as their platform fails to call for the expulsion/murder of Muslims, I'd appreciate if people refrained from comparing the party to the NSDAP.
you are evading the question.
1) doesn't "islam does not belong to germany" logically imply support of a germany without islam, and why/why not?
2) if so, how do you (or the afd) propose to reach such a state?
clear and straightforward answers, please.
