‘We don’t need them’: Austrian FM wants to end Islamic kindergartens to boost integration

Shutting down Islamic kindergartens where children have little or no command of German would be an efficient way to ensure the integration of migrants, Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said.

The comment was made at a public event set up by Kurier newspaper.

“Of course, we don’t need them. There should be no Islamic kindergartens,” Kurz said when asked whether he would agree to completely get rid of such facilities.

According to the foreign minister, proficiency in German must become a gateway to Austrian society.

Immigrant children and others “who have little or no command of German” would have to attend kindergarten one year longer than their Austrian peers, he said.

An idea whose time has come.

    But how are the girls going to get an islamic education before they graduate from kindergarten and get married off for a future life hidden behind the walls of their husband’s home? Of course, this marriage won’t be actually consummated until the girls are nine, but as Muhammad’s example shows, an arranged marriage at aged six is fine.

    • We should respect those customs.

    • Imagine these girls marrying Western men and enjoying lives of freedom.

      Who needs Islamic kindergarten?

    “Of course, we don’t need them”
    That applies to each and every Mohammedan.

    Why not stop taking in immigrants until the ones you already have are integrated? I suppose having a kindergarten krackdown is a lot easier.

      Even if a generation is integrated, then their children may not be, when they are educated by a Wahabist imam from Saudi Arabia and discover that being ‘the best of people’ and an inshallah attitude is not the key to success in Western Civilization without an accompanying study and work ethic.

    “We don’t need them”
    Let in more Muslims and soon, _they_ will define what _we _ means.

    Most of these kids have become tainted with vicious deadly Islamic hate by the time they reach 6 years old. Witnessing the mandatory daily hate prayers, which are so frequent and hateful, is something that you cannot easily erase from their minds. You are the enemy by the time they enter school. It is thus too late if you let any pass through the gate.
