Aggressive and Macho: The Muslim Youth of Germany 
by Dr. Sami Alrabaa 

05 May, 2009 

Finally someone dared publicly talking about the Muslim youth in Germany and their reckless aggressive behavior. 

The German radio, WDR5, broadcast a two-hour live talk show called “Hallo Ü-Wagen” on April 25, 2009 to find out why Muslim youth are so aggressive and fanatic. Julitta Münch, the moderator of this program, invited several specialists to discuss the topic. 

Over two hours, the majority of the participating specialists and the public depicted, all in all, an egregious picture of Muslim youths, in particular the males. 
Ms. Münch, noted at the outset that she had invited many teachers, especially the female ones, but none turned up. She assumed they were scared to speak up against their Muslim youths.
Mansour Ahmed, a Palestinian social worker in Berlin, who deals with Muslim youths and their families on a daily basis, said that more than 30% of the young Muslim men are “very violent”. They do not allow their sisters to talk to other boys, especially German boys. Mansour also said that Muslim boys would never approve of their sisters marrying a German man. A Muslim boy told Mansour, he would kill his sister if she marries a German infidel, or has sex with a man before she is married. “More than 60% of Muslim girls are forced to marry a man of their parents’ choice,” Mansour added. He concluded that the majority of young Muslims and older men in Germany interpret and apply Islam in a Taliban kind of way.
Ahmet Toprak, a Muslim Turk, and social science professor at a high school in Germany, and a typical apologist, does not believe that “Muslim youth are more violent than their German counterparts”. Like most apologists, he holds alleged "social deprivation" responsible for the radical Islamism. 
Toprak also claimed that Muslim men behave like machos not because of Islam, but because of their social traditions.
This is not true. Several passages in the Koran and Hadith stress on the “leading role” of Muslim men in society. Hence, men are allowed to beat women if the latter do not follow their directions. For further evidence, check out “Is Islam Violent?” and “Women in Hadith”, posted in “Family Security Matters”.
Illona Rothin, a school teacher and film producer, rejected vehemently Toprak’s views. Ms. Rothin interviewed numerous young Muslims and many German teachers, and presented several facts: 
·         Female teachers, in particular, are afraid of  young Muslim men at German schools. Rothin said, she attended a class at a school in Hamburg, having mostly Turk and Arab students. At the beginning of the class, there were 29 students; at the end, only 8 remained seated. The rest left the class without any excuse. When Rothin asked the teacher why she allowed that to happen, the teacher said, “I’m scared. I cannot do anything against that. And the head teacher tries to hush all this up.” Mr. Grimm, a man from the public and one who is well-informed about what is going on in German schools, intervened and said, “The ministry of Education sent out several decrees to schools urging head teachers not to follow up wrong doing by the Muslim youth.” 

·         At another school, Rothin overheard a Muslim student talking disrespectfully to one of his female teachers. He told his teacher, “I can go and come whenever I please. Therefore, never ask me what I’m doing. It’s none of your business.. OK?!” 

Another participant in the show reported the following experience. A teacher wrote to a local newspaper reporting that one of her pupils, a 14-year-old girl, was chained to her bed by her Muslim father to prevent her from leaving the house. The newspaper refused to publish the letter. The teacher was told, posting the letter would endanger her life.
This reminds me of the numerous letters I myself sent out to local newspapers; to the Neue Westfälische and Westfalen Blatt in Bielefeld, in which I reported women being beaten and girls are forced by their Muslim parents to marry old men, whom the girls have never met. The papers simply refused to publish my letters.
Also in Bielefeld, in Stieghorst, a district that is inhabited predominantly by Turks, Muslim boys do not allow their sisters to enter the “Freizentrum” (recreation center). And German boys are not allowed to enter the center either. 
According to various studies, more than 70% of young Muslims in Germany drop out of school before reaching the 10th grade. Later, many of them join the “army of the jobless”, and live on “Harz-Vier”, the welfare system.
Both mosques and affiliated centers fill the minds of young Muslim men with hatred toward the German society and blame it for their misery. These indoctrination centers, compounded by the fact that schools and state authorities shy away from confronting young Muslims, simply embolden the Muslim youth, and encourage them to stay defiant.
Mustafa, a young Turk told me, “Teachers and the police are afraid of me. And I’m glad they are.”
German apologists always find all kinds of excuse to appease and accommodate radical Muslims. When Reinhard Baumgarten, a journalist and a “Middle East expert”, was asked on another radio program, the Deutschland-Radio, on 22 April 2009 why Muslims are getting more and more violent, he attributed that to “Perspektivelosigkeit”: i.e. the Muslim youth are getting violent because they lack every conceivable perspective. Because they have zero future, they are becoming more and more violent.
Is it really so? Muslims living legally in Germany have the same rights as every citizen in this country. Muslims in Muslim countries can only dream of having such rights. For example, a jobless couple with four children would get state aid of up to € 2,000 a month. 
Mathias Rohe from Erlangen—another Muslim apologist and a judge, who uses Shari’a in his verdicts when Muslims are involved—claimed on the same radio show, “Islam is compatible with secularism.” To add insult to injury, Rohe accused that “We do not understand Shari’a.”
Thank God, we have someone, like Mr. Rohe, who understands Shari’a! 
Laughable as it is, it is obviously this so-called “Islam expert”, who has little idea of Shari’a, one who has never read the Koran, neither the Hadith. These books are replete with atrocious passages that advocate male-dominance, denigrate women and incite hatred and violence against non-Muslims.
The truth of the matter is that German politicians and mainstream media have ignored and suppressed for decades the fact that Muslims must also abide by local laws. After the 9/11, the Germans, and the West in general, received a wake-up call. They got scared and have all the time been trying to appease Muslims out of fear, not conviction.
However, the hopeful side of it is that the German public seems better informed about Islam and radical Muslims than their media and politicians.
Germany’s engagement in combating Muslim terrorism has been timid. The German troops stationed in Afghanistan, some 3,800, have played a rather passive role than a proactive one in the fight against terror. They are confined to their camps in northern Afghanistan; they dare not venture out. German politicians, especially from the Green Party and  the leftist Die Linke, oppose Germany’s involvement in Afghanistan, in the Somali coast, and Lebanon. They always argue, “We have lost nothing there.”
German politicians and mainstream media condemned freeing the American hostage Richard Phillips in Somali waters by force. They claimed that this would endanger the life of five German sailors kept hostage by the Somali pirates for more than 2 months now.
The Germans prefer to pay ransom money, which they can recoup by selling the merchandise worldwide. They do not want to make their hands dirty in cleaning up Islamic terror. They want others to do the job for them.
Thanks to the CIA, the German security agencies could foil a devastating attack by radical Muslims in Germany. The CIA information helped the German police arrest four Muslims and recover 26 detonators, which could have cost hundreds of innocent lives.
The four terrorists—Fritz Gelowicz of Polish descent and Daniel Schneider (two German converts), and Adam Yilmaz and Attilia Selek (two Turks), also called the Sauerland group—were arrested on September 4, 2007. 
Uschi Eid from the German Green Party told the Deutschland-Radio, “We must encourage the Somalis apply Shari’a. This might help building the state again. Islam regulates both religious and mundane life. This might help bring peace to Somalia and rid us of piracy.”
In other words, Eid is advocating the setting up of a Taliban state in Somalia. 
The Germans rightly use every opportunity to condemn and fight the NPD, the neo-Nazis in Germany. Why don't they do the same with radical Muslims, who are as dangerous as the NPD. Radical Muslims preach that their Islam is the best “faith” on earth, and they are better believers than the rest of the world. This is double standard “per excellence”.
The Islamic religious and political discrimination is as egregious as the NPD’s.
Of course, in contrast to Muslim states, in particular the oil-rich ones, the NPD is, economically speaking, insignificant. This being said, Germany and other European countries avoid alienating Muslims.
Most recently Switzerland prosecuted a German lady for bashing radical Muslims. Her criticism has been interpreted as an act of “racism”. This trial is meant as a warning to all critics of Islam to stop doing so. Petrodollars come first.
The longer the Germans pamper the radical Muslims, the more emboldened the latter would become. The longer the Germans procrastinate confronting radical Islam and Muslims, the more potent and perilous the time bomb is getting.
Muslim radicalism in Europe and across the globe is a pandemic that must be confronted and eradicated, like any other virus. Sticking our head in the sand like an ostrich is patently dangerous to our future.
