German Minister Calls for Anti-Islam Rally to Be Canceled

BERLIN — Germany’s justice minister is calling on organizers of anti-Islam rallies in Dresden to cancel a planned protest Monday out of respect for the victims of the terror attacks in France.

The weekly rallies are organized by a group called the Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West, or Pegida. They often accuse mainstream media of lying about immigration and other issues.

Organizers of Monday’s demonstration have asked participants to wear black ribbons to honor the victims of three days of terror in Paris that started with an attack on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

But Justice Minister Heiko Maas told newspaper Bild on Sunday that the rally should be canceled, saying it’s “simply disgusting” that organizers want to commemorate victims “that last week they still insulted as lying journalists.”

At Politically Incorrect, the writers deny they ever called the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists liars, but that they are referring to Germany’s mainstream media.  

Naturally the government desperately wants to stop the protests and will seize on any excuse it can find.  Notice also how familiar the minister is with the site — the government is watching it. 

Meanwhile, Suspected Member of IS Group Arrested in Germany: BERLIN — German prosecutors say they have arrested a suspected member of the Islamic State group.

The federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement late Saturday that a 24-year-old man identified as Nils D. was arrested in Dinslaken in western Germany and his apartment was raided.

The suspect allegedly traveled to Syria in October in 2013 where he joined IS fighters. He returned to Germany in November 2014.

A local prosecutor in Duesseldorf had opened a separate terror investigation against the man in early 2014, but federal prosecutors said there was no indication that he was planning any concrete attacks. They also said his arrest was not related to the terror attacks in Paris.

    OMG do these people listen to themselves? He calls for them to be cancelled “out of respect for the victims”. It is our of respect and in honour of those who refused to submit to sharia that the rally should take place. To cancel it would be to submit to the barbarians and to their sharia.

      He’s just an appeasing politician. He needs to keep the millions of Muzz happy, it’s too late now to send them back.

    Can you get any more treasonous? (That is, treasonous Justice Minister Heiko Maas — for the morally confused reader — not those objecting to the inherently evil and immutable Islam and objecting to a future of totalitarian tyranny by any label.)

    A justice minister who wants his citizens to surrender to Islamic justice. Can’t get much lower than that.

  • pdxnag

    If the citizens of the Islamic Ummah did not have a vote in any “Western” election would Justice Minister Heiko Maas go jihad on the defiant infidels? He must want 93 percent of the Muslim Jihadist vote some day, just like President Hollande.

    I smell flop sweat by Europe’s political establishment. I hope PEGIDA keeps the pressure on.

    How exactly does cancelling an Islamic truth rally show respect for those killed by Islam?

    I hope she’s tried for treason once a sane leader is elected.

    Herr Hitler is rubbing his hands together in glee as he roasts in hell. If you want to be honest blame the nazis in Germany that voted for these fools. In a democracy the people are responsible for choosing the government they want to represent them.

    Arh! The castrated German voice of reason and all things Islamic!
    My God! Only in Germany would you get a fool like this, oops sorry, Only in most western democracies would you get fools like this!
