Germany is now headed down the road to civil war.
In a remarkable interview with the BBC Newshour program on Sunday night, the spokesman for the Islamic Council of Germany (ISC) called for an outright ban on the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party after comparing the AfD to the Nazi Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei; NSDAP) of the 1930s:
BBC: But in a democratic system, if people are voting for them, what can you do?
ICG: We have to teach the people that we have made some experiences from the history, which are very similar and close to the what the AFD is now doing. They are excluding one religious group from the social life. Therefore, they have to be banned from the political system because you cannot deal with the enemies of the democracy by means of the democracy, so the democratic people have to exclude them from all the democratic platform.
BBC: So you want them banned. A party which has won seats in half of regional elections, which has — as you say — between 10 and 15 percent of the vote in opinion polls at the moment — you’d like to see them banned completely, would you?
The call by the ICG to employ German state powers to ban the AfD came after the AfD adopted policy platforms at its conference stating that Islam is “not part of Germany.”
Germany is increasingly falling under the stranglehold of Islamification pressure by Muslims in the country who seek to bring sharia law into full force.
Back in January, a Muslim group called for the banning of alcohol in Germany, and now the ICG is seeking to ban political parties that hold a negative view of Islam. So-called “sharia zones” have already been declared by Muslims in western Germany, with “sharia police” patrolling the streets under the support of the German court system. A growing number of legal cases are also being decided by sharia law.
One side will ultimately need to give in on its own initiative, or the path towards civil war on German soil is now set in stone.
The AfD is too popular to be quietly dismissed and banned from all political activities, and the Muslim proportion of the population (estimated at 6% in 2010, now undoubtedly closer to 10% after the migration wave over the past two years) is too large and activist to be suppressed without force and is unlikely to leave the country voluntarily.
The problems in Germany are happening as expected. Full democracies are effectively absent in countries with >6% Muslim population, a threshold that Germany has recently crossed
