In the U.S., Muslim groups like CAIR actually go to court to fight for sharia law. via Germany bans 3 Islamic groups as anti-democratic – Ynetnews.
Germany on Wednesday banned three ultra-conservative Salafist Muslim groups which the Interior Ministry said wanted to overturn democracy and install a system based on sharia, or Islamic law.
The ban, which took effect in the western states of Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia in the early morning, is the latest step taken by German authorities who have increased surveillance of Salafists who espouse a radical version of Islam.
What version of Islam is that? Do they have their own version of the Koran? Does it contradict Muhammad?
The ministry said it has banned the organizations “DawaFFM” and “Islamische Audios”, as well as “An-Nussrah”, which is part of the “Millatu Ibrahim” group that was outlawed in June.
Some 20 people were searched and assets belonging to the organizations were seized, said the ministry.
“Salafism, as represented in the associations that were banned today, is incompatible with our free democratic order,” Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said in a statement.
“(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 law.”
Germany is home to roughly 4,000 Salafists. They make up only a tiny proportion of the total Muslim population of about 4 million.
They searched 20 out of 4,000 and banned the groups. A small start but they didn’t ban sharia, they didn’t ban the Koran, they didn’t ban mosques and they didn’t deport the 4,000. Will anything really change?
Would Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich be wrong in stating that Islam as represented in the Koran is incompatible with Germany’s free democratic order? We think not.
